OK, it looks like "SUNPOWR" is not an option - with VA so unfriendly toward solar, there's a 70-year payback after Federal support (100 year raw payback) and it just makes no sense. SOOooo, I'm turning the "SUNPOWR" plates back in and looking for something new (BTW, these plates have been on the Escape for the last year-and-a-half - seems ironic that they've been on an SUV for a placekeeper). If I order the plates now, I MAY have them before the car (due next month).

Whoever comes up with the winning name GETS A FREE RIDE!!! (that's RIDE, not DRIVE).

The rules are 7 characters (plus a space or dash) for the regular plates; 6 characters for "Clean Special Fuels Vehicle" plate. You can see what they look like by Googling "VA DMV" and designing a plate.

Here's where the fight (I mean discussion) stands:

I like "OIL FREE" - it's correct (and makes a political statement when described as "OIL FREEdom" from the stranglehold of imported oil). Mrs. prowlie says it sounds like an acne medication.

SHE likes "NO GAS", which is also correct, but it reminds me of the old (incorrect) Nova story (where the car didn't sell in certain countries because it means "no gas" or "no go" (stalled)).

I don't like "battery" or "plug..." combinations since, in a couple of years, ALL hybrids will be plug-in (and they already have batteries - not a distinguishing characteristic).

Here's some others that have been discussed or used (including "plug" and "battery" types):

OIL FREE
BATERY
SPARKZZ
NO GAS
PLUG-N
PURRRRR (as in quiet, builds on the cat/multiple-r/sound from GRROWL the Prowler)

other Tesla owners:
MR TESLA
TESLA88 (mine would be TESLA250 - too long)
RCHRGBL
COIL
TESLAAA
DC PWRRR
AMP UP
RECHRG
BAT R EE

SO, all you creative types, WHAT CAN YOU COME UP WITH???

Not available (but VOLTPWR is)
I may get VOLTPWR for a Chevy Volt (if I can get one)

Hmmmm, cute angle ("pass gas stations") "not available", but not taken - I think they consider this one off-color.

Squishy said:
Available. Not sure, also applies to plug-in hybrids.

I like it (but taken). The kids tell me that this also has a "street" definition???

I would humbly suggest WTF for the licence plate (as an acronym for "where's the fuel?" :D )

I THINK I have it narrowed down to these, all available, roughly in order:

SPARKZZ
OIL FREE
LEKTR1K
ZERO OIL
BAT R EE
WHIRRRR
CHAARGE
PAST GAS
PURRRRR
NO OIL

Votes, comments or other ideas???
