    I think it's very cool! With the way gas prices are going this could easily become a future option! Very Happy

    At the bottom of the video, it says approximately 80 miles to a charge at $2.40 per charge. I wonder how long it takes to recharge?

    80 miles is not a good option, after 30 miles you have to turn back, and hope there's no traffic,

    If they could figure out a way to harness the vehicles motion to recharge as you go, then you'd have something.

    Tesla has all that figured out and is producing high end luxury cars that gets over 300 miles per charge. The Tesla Roadster is supposed to be faster than a new Corvette & gets 245 miles per charge.

    I researched converting my First Gen Chevy last year with a local EV shop. Parts cost alone was over 15K with batteries 60% of cost. After we calculated the cost and range (125 miles @ 60 mph) it was not worth giving up the range with the gas as I drive 128/135 miles a day now. But look good on paper! Waiting to find and looking for a late model Hybrid Cross over Gas/EV Toyota or Honda that got rear ended. So all the drive components are in tact. (maybe waiting a while until the replacement value declines in about 6 years)

    I was talking with a napa store. he informed be at a auto auction they have to disclose how much battery life is left on a car. some batterys can cost $4,000 to $5,000 per car then they weigh up to 500 pounds, So then with out buying a fork lift to get themoff the truck and on the shelves he can't handle them , Also he would need a special charger and it was not worth it for them to carry/sell them, I know i'm not interested in removing a 500 lb battery from a car and replacing that,
    The H H O SYSTEMS ARE WELL WORTH LOOKING INTO, twice the gas miles from water and a 30 amp 12 volt electric curcit here it the basic idea, but you can do your own search ,,,,

    Looks expensive and complicated. I think I'll stick with burning dead dinosaurs for the time being.

    I love it when people say that an electric car has no carbon footprint. It actually has a LARGER carbon footprint because of all the coal burned to produce the electricity to charge the batteries.

    I totally agree. The costs, materials and not to mention all the plastic(not enviro friendly to produce) on these cars now. It makes me wounder how long it takes to recoup actual cost of these new vehicles. My friend buys 300 series Mercedes and converts them to grease pushers. He thinks he's being green, problem is he buys another car every year or two. For me in the "automotive world" putting and old STEEL machine back on the road is as green as i can be. Mainly because its already made. I'm of the thinking lets use what we already have, not make more crap.
