    actually it is a issue do you want to try to get on the highway with a car that takes 20 seconds to get to the speed as other drivers, I sure as hell don't even if it gets 100mpg

    the car might be good for europe because of how much traffic there is and all the tight areas, but as far as the states, some of the mid west states have no speed limit, but here on the east cost there are tractor trailers all over the place, I wouldn't get in a car that is that slow, you would end up causing accidents because its too slow

    Good idea with the 100mpg but not good for the states

    well, with gas doing this shit and new cars looking like this, i guess building cars is no longer going to be a hobby.

    time to start a new one. maybe making german sheiza videos or something.

    The air powered car is a flight of fancy. It takes more power than that to compress air into the feeding cylinder. The way this company phrases shit they make you think it's perpetual energy.

    Gasoline is an awesome fuel, we need to stop pissing it away, park the fucking SUVs and Mercedes and get real about the way we chomp through this shit.

    Because you will never find an energy as cheap or efficient as fossil fuels. Never. The future belongs to the zero-pointers, which is a horrible thing to say - but the only thing that will carry us into space is zero-point energy. So start looking under every rock until you find a particle that wasn't there a second ago. Rinse and repeat.

    actually. maybe not. but who knows.

    yeah, fossil fuels are great, but they're running out.
    probably no where near as quick as the media makes it out to be but it will.
