Some enterprising individuals are doing exactly that and selling "used" Teslas over list price. There are some buyers who are willing to pay the premium to eliminate the hassles of out-of-state purchase and to avoid the waiting list for a new one. (Yes, the tax on the resale is part of the markup).

Who's the batch of asshats who are reaming her dad out like this anyway? Sounds like it's time to shine a Slash dotlight on 'em.

Nonsense. The school negotiated in good faith and came to an acceptable settlement--quite favorable to the plaintiff, when you consider that he didn't have to prove that they had done anything wrong. It's not their fault that the Snays immediately violated the terms of the settlement.

In the 1920's and 30's, "ethyl" (leaded gasoline) was the more expensive grade. By the 1940s, virtually all gasoline contained TEL and manufacturers designed engines with higher compression ratios to take advantage of the fuel. So, by the 1970s, unleaded gasoline required more expensive octane boosters to work in modern engines.

Today, lead additives for vehicle fuel are banned in almost all countries.

Simplicity does not precede complexity, but follows it.
