    Toyota aims to nearly eliminate gasoline cars by 2050

    The hybrid we should be building is series hydraulic. If you really want to piss off big oil put a liquid nitogen sc motor to a series hydraulic or a mazda rotory zero emmission hydrogen or a gun engine series hydraulic or hot vapor cycle to series hydraulic.

    cut to heart of matter
    trains get 400 mpg per mile per ton. to me as a mechanic that means a car weighing 1 ton should get close to 400 mpg. THE PROOF 1973 shell oil mpg contest winner 374 mpg during the arab oil embargo . SHELL OIL had the answer and buried it for second time . The first time technology was buried was 1930's the POGUE carburetor which did same thing in the 1973 contest that it did in 1933 , which was good enough for 2nd place. gasoiline vapor detonation engines are very fuel efficient.

    if your car runs on gasoline you can run it on butanol or p series . if you have the e85 software you can run e85. it will run on gasoline made from natural gas or syngas . if you spend a lot you can convert to lpg or cng. or syngas. ammonia is a bifuel conversion at up to 75% ammonia to 25% gasoline.

    if diesel then is it old dirty diesel or clean diesel it matters far more than public knows.

    lead was added to gasoline to stop detonation ,gasoline vapor only works with unleaded fuel. what was happening in 1973 catalytic convertors were on way and leaded fuel was on way out. when the fuel became available the technology resurfaced. DO NOT TRY TO USE ON YOUR CAR, SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE WILL RESULT. DETONATION ENGINES REQUIRE LONG SKIRT PISTONS what they had in the beginning of 4 stroke engine age. piston slap and cylinder wear results from detonation in todays engines.

    bio diesel and vegitable oils will cause rapid particulate filter clogging and ENGINE OIL DILUTION which results in severe engine damage. in clean diesel tech engines.

    old dirty diesels biodiesel is safe and will run on vegitable oil. a local farmer grows his own sunflower seed and presses the oil himself and filters it through 2 micron filter and has run it in his farm tractors for years.

    hdrd is clean diesel safe at 100% and is made from same feedstocks as bio and biomass diesel.

    Wonder how much service garage dollars figure into this.
