Hydrogen cars

As I said before, I believe hydrogen will overtake battery. And why not use clean hydrogen to create more hydrogen.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

If we could only harness the hot air generated from politicians, we'd have no energy shortage at all. :)

Hydrogen was studied very thoroughly in the late 1990's when Congress gave automakers a ton of cash to do that.

To make hydrogen you need a buttload of electricity and a buttload of natural gas. The end product is highly pressurized, flammable and dangerous. As one Toyota engineer told me at the time "It's basically a more complicated and expensive way to burn natural gas and electricity".

As there is no benefit to it, I don't see any future to hydrogen powered anything other than bombs or power plants.

I think "hydrogen" is the bomb.....enjoy that ride
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS
