Holy Car-p!

I found (read: saw on Clicked) this article that really intrigues me.

This guy takes cars (well, usually SUVs and big trucks and stuff) and converts them to (bio)diesel/electric hybrids. Just like the auto companies say can't be done. With 90% off-the-shelf parts made by said auto companies. Oh yeah, not only does it slash emissions drastically, it also (roughly) quadruples the gas mileage and usually something like doubles the horsepower.

Detroit! Are you listening?! Make this guy your new chief of engineering!

The rest of you read the article. It is beyond well-worth your perusal.

    Dude! You got me all worked up. I'm starting to break a sweat as I read the first couple of paragraphs of the link--hybrids/electrics/mpg to me are like playboy centerfolds to rednecks.

    And then-- No pics! Total bummer, man.

    Otherwise, tasty article. If only I had a garage and an arc welder...

    I wanted to convert our old desil mercedes to a veggie car. One that runs on used veggie oil, but the kit was to much at the time. And then I wrecked the car. LOL

    I loved this article. I think it's awesome when forward-thinking people prove big-money "talkers" wrong. Woot!
