Drive agnostic POWDERY?

Do you know of a variation of POWDERY etc that covers battery EVs, hydrogen, anything and everything else?
Your 'standard' is how you drive alone, not how you drive during a test.

Are you going to need to add an 'A' at some point for checking all the ADAS systems work (or autopilot). Have you cleaned all the external cameras? (especially if driving on salted roads as we have at the moment)
S for software updates?

Somehow doubt that checks by drivers will be feasible. I don't check my car's radar.

Seems to me they all apply.

It's a silly acronym, anyway, but you can choose to remember the first two refer to fuel and Other essential fluids.

Know your vehicle, mention what you can check or control.

I do first aid. Well, I'm trained to do it when necessary.

There are tons of acronyms and abbreviations, possibly the worst being 'FISHSHAPED'.



If you’ve ever been on a first aid course the chances are you’ve been taught the first aid mnemonic FISH SHAPED. Its a FISH SHAPEDslightly strange mnemonic but a very popular one amongst first aid trainers and instructors!

So what does FISH SHAPED stand for? And when is it used?

FISH SHAPED is a mnemonic used to remember the commons reasons for a patient becoming unconscious. The list is not exhaustive, but it covers a number of common first aid emergencies.

> Fainting
> Infantile convulsions
> Shock
> Head Injury
> Stroke
> Heart Attack
> Asphyxia
> Poisons
> Epilepsy
> Diabetes

Radar can see through a bit of dirt. Meanwhile in Tesla owners manul (p82, https://www.tesla.com/sites/default/fil ... ica_en.pdf)

"To ensure the various Autopilot components can provide information that is as accurate as possible, keep them clean and free of obstructions, condensation, or damage. Occasionally remove any buildup of dirt by wiping the components with a soft cloth dampened with warm water."

I'm sure all their owners diligently do that before every trip :lol:

Define 'occasionally' ... :confused:

Wouldn't it have been better to say 'clean it if there's clag'?
