Re: Honda Backs Hydrogen as U.S. Favors Battery Vehicles
Do we really need to wean ourselves so far off gas that we switch to hydrogen as a secondary fuel when the batter runs dry?
If we increase our current mileage from the 20mph or less we currently have to 200mpg (not equiv, but actual avg gas used per mile), then aren't we good to go? If most gas is already e10, then about 10% of our gas supply is ethenal. So if we could drop out need by 90%, we could reasonably go to 100% biofuels which although aren't as energy dense as oil based gas, are far denser than hydrogen systems for the size of the fuel tank. When I do go cross country, I'd still like to be able to use gas and only stop a few times. I don't want to have to pull into the hydrogen station every 200 miles.
Eagles may fly, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines (with 1 known exception)
