Default Re: $4.00 per gallon gas & a car sighting in Brentwood

JJ,

I thought Honda was test marketing fuel cells in the LA area already, or were supposed to. Anyone know if this is happening?

The Honda fuel cell cars will test early next year in LA. You can only lease the vehicles and I belive it will run you somewhere around a grand to do so. The cars must be "refuled" at select Honda dealers which I believe is around two (at the moment). Also, they have a max range of 270 miles before needing to be filled up.

They're no different in terms of style than a typical Civic. They'll just have more stickers on them letting the world know you care more about the enviorment they they do. =)

Personally, I like all the R&D car companies are doing however, there are clean, green and more cost effective ways to get our current cars running like champs (with actual horse power) and drinking very little. I believe Texaco bought the patent for a traditional engine that could do 100mpg back in the late 70's I think. They bought it from a guy before GM could because they didn't want to loose money in oil sales. There are plenty of ways to get more out of cars already on the road. Hell a diesel VW will do better than a Prius in terms of MPG but they won't let them come over here.

My two cents...

But, if you look at the price of diesel compared to gas and the maint. on diesels are high I don't think you save anything.

yes but a diesel can be converted to run off veggie oil from your local McDonalds and still retain 98% of its horsepower with ZERO emissions. Unless you count that delicious french fry smell coming from your exhaust.

Also, if you can go twice as far on diesel on the same size tank the savings would be great.

Hell, skip diesel altogether and just let auto makers make petrol engines that can do wonders. problem is, everytime they reinvent something the oil companies cut 'em off at the knees.
