Liquid gasoline does not burn. The vapor lingering around a particle of gasoline is what burns. Why is it that modern combustion engines run on liquid gasoline sprayed into the pistons?
Now for a lesson in history. In 1935 a man by the name of 'Charles Nelson Pogue' devised a carburetor around this knowlege of gasoline that vaporized the fuel BEFORE injecting it into a cylinder. The result was an engine that racked in a staggering ~120 miles per gallon. The technology has since been improved to 463 miles per gallon with modern materials and unable to be patented as the patents have already been taken and are restricted, making only 'backyard projects' legal.
My question is WHY is our nation so uninformed of such technology? Its not a conspiracy, it is a simple lack of intrest put forth by the population of the world.
What about showing how much it costs the owners electric bill to charge their cars at home.
MPG is suppose to tell owners what it costs to drive a certain distance. If you don't include the
charging costs then you are comparing apples to oranges. Or is the electric car makers afraid
to show the real costs. Don't forget to add the costs of replacing those expensive battery packs
in the electric cars. Then you will have a real comparison.
No one wants these little electirc cars in America untill one can be made in a full size Hummer and can be charge only once a month or so and doesn't cost more than $12,000.00, Walmart cheap !
China is buying up all the so called Green Energy companies that have failed with our Tax Dollars subsidising them, then they go bankrupt. Thank-you BHO. China only buying them for a dime on the dollar with OUR money and stealing all the Technology and Interlectural Rights.
If BHO and D.C. get out of the Business of Business and let the Private Sector work on it, it may happen in the next 25 years.
Ummm, I don't know the price of electric in other states, but with a.c. here in the summer it's very high...so how come no one is estimating what the rise in your elec. bill is going to be with all this car charging???
A 220 volt charger sucks a lot of juice!
