Biodiesel and New Energy

Focusing on kinetic and electrical energy, particularly biodiesel, ethanol, and new hydrogen economy.

The Tesla EV Roadster is a fine looking and well powered vehicle. I promote any vehicle that does not run on gasoline, even if it does not split water.

0-60 in 4 seconds, runs on ~6800 lithium ion laptop batteries. Impressive. It must have a few hundred good horses in there, electric. This is the electric car that will beat the bag out of gas cars.

A few weeks ago I designed the 2008 Grand Marquis to use certain power sources, either battery/air, biodiesel, or fuel cell. I would like to add to that and replace the power source with a water splitter. A 1994 Ford Escort can do it, so can a largecar. I estimate that this will reduce engine weight by perhaps 200-300 pounds, considering loss of catalytic converters and mufflering and consolidated air intake and radiation systems.

I would replace the transmission with a multitronic transmission, sparing time getting high and increasing efficiency and available torque. This too will reduce moving parts and weight of the vehicle by perhaps 100 pounds.

And, if we can create hydrogen heat hotter than the surface of the sun with the H20-HHO-2H2O2 method for *free*, we can afford to extrude carbon fiber without the cost of heating it. This will reduce the cost of carbon fiber to perhaps 1/5 of its current cost, $15/pound, even without new refining strategies. This will make carbon fiber within price range for the vehicle, and allow the 800 pound carbon fiber frame even on this monster. We could afford to reinforce it with carbon threaded nanotubules if necessary to give it the highest tensile strength of any known fiber. Excellent.

This will bring the car down to the $15000 price range or lower considering the costs of operation, and allow it to achieve unreasonable acceleration, pointless efficiency, and 5*+ safety rating. Let the games begin.

Rotten Tomatoes. Movie site containing reviews of an educational doc on the electric car. I also want to know who killed the watercar. Preferrably before 2007.

I invite you all to make use of this website. They will machine parts for you online and deliver them to you in 6-8 weeks. If you've got a novel rig for a biodiesel or water splitting engine and want them ot make it or you, tell them and they will.

And if you haven't examined the technological marvels... of the 20th century that we could use today, visit

New Links:

Biodiesel Station. Contains links to ebay'd diesel engined vehicles of many low price ranges near Poughkeepsie, NY. I'd drive it. Easy search!

Also, see what Canada is doing. They're switching from American 500ppm diesel to European 15ppm diesel. Take a lesson, America. This will remove 90% of lung damaging particles from the air and be the equivalent of removing 200,000 trucks from the road. This is the clean air action.

Seperately, this is an outrage. Why would California limit the sale of biodiesel? I also believe I saw Golden Gate Fuels selling B100 without any special mention of this law. I am disappointed in you, California.

Look at these quotes. Recycled grease fuel should cost about a buck. I don't know why someone would sell biodiesel costing more than regular diesel at any time.
