I think ESS and AA go to great lengths to maintain an acceptable level of reliability and safety. But I'm talking about long-term. 100k miles and up. I don't think anyone has reached that point.

When you go FI...I think more significant is the change in driving style. I'm willing to bet it's a little more aggressive.
