    Your analogy is halting as it goes perfectly well to switch gas from leaded
    to unleaded depending of the brand of cars. I did so with my SAAB 900, back
    in the 80's, and it was no problem with Volvo as well. As I think you know,
    lead serves as a "greasing" component and the difference between leaded and
    unleaded is what "greasing" component added. To my knowledge there have been
    no change in the deliverence of electric power, except for the addition of
    "green" power. But to the contrary of petrol, you don't know what power you
    get, do you?

    Volvos got a black eye in America for having the most atrocious record of
    poorly constructed vehicles imported. Too bad, I understand they have since
    cleaned up their act.

    I don't know about your country but in America the emissions laws are
    strict, mostly in California. As a result, most leaded gas engines went
    through a period of adjustment. At first, their were a few unleaded pumps
    then it slowly changed to the majority being unleaded and a few leaded, then
    none. Therefore, it was not an overnight event. It was gradual. Lots of
    folks had problems with the compression of their engines using unleaded gas
    intheir leaded gas guzzlers. It was mostly an annoyance to the majority,
    depending on which side of the controversary you were on.
