    Have you ever noticed that the autobots drive like crazy and yet they don't fill up for oil. I guessing jolt made them electric. What you think.

    Is this a serious question or are you just trying to be a smart ass? lol They are not real vehicles. They are robots who transform in the shape of vehicles.

    ...yet have ALL the attributes that make them real vehicles like rubber tires, gear shifts, steering wheels, windows, front & back seats, fabric interiors, seat belts, rear view mirror decals, engines that 'start' and even exhaust. They were more like actual cars that turned into robots than the other way around.

    I actually would have preferred it if they did JUST take the shape of vehicles outwardly but were mangled messes inside like they would/should be if they were folded up robots.

    i suppose they are folded up UNDERNEATH the seats and leather i suppose they could transform into the actual shape of the car...then on cybertron they made stearing wheels and car seats and attatched them to the inside with the help or Jolt of something. if you think of it that way, that CAN MAKE SENSE. BUT its not that way in the movie. they just can transform into anything...which is awesome for the car part, but i have trouble with the fact that they can develop leather and stuff...but i just think of it like they added that part to themselves and attatched it to themselves. :p  but its pretty understandable if you think of all of the possibilites...

    but, for the question about oil, WHAT THE!?! that makes no sense. they travel on energon! they are not toys or cars! they dont need to be charged or filled up with gas! they are aliens! alien robots that have energon!!! WEIRD QUESTION. ;)  no offense

    I hate to be one of those "there's an answer for everything in Bayformers"-people, or a "stop asking stupid questions"-guy, but who's to say that they don't fill up with oil? Maybe they do. Just because we haven't seen them do so doesn't mean they don't. We also don't see the Autobots change their tires. Or wash their windshields. Doesn't mean they don't do those things. There just wouldn't be much point in showing those things in the movie, unless the plot hinged on it or something.

    As for a more logical answer, as many others have put it: ENERGON.

    They are basically living things, so they don't need fuel as long as they still have a spark and some energon.

    exactly, just because we havent seen them fuel up with oil doesnt mean they dont. same reason why we never see people go to the bathroom in films, its not important.
