Cheaper, Cleaner Diesel Emissions

The catalytic converters that reduce nitrogen oxides and www.velikibrat.us other harmful emissions help keep the air clean, but rely on rare and expensive minerals such as platinum and palladium, which increases the the best place buy cialis online australia overall cost of vehicles. But an alternative, that does not rely on these expensive materials, offers better performance and at a lower cost.

Using a synthetic version of a material called mullite, researchers found that the pollution levels from diesel engines were up to 45% lower than those using conventional platinum catalysts.  Although it is a synthetically created material, it is still less expensive than the rare minerals which are currently used.

One unanswered question is whether the same materials can also be usefully applied to conventional gasoline engines, to provide cleaner exhausts from those vehicles at a lower cost, as well.

California High Speed Rail Project Gets Funding to viagra ordering on line Go Ahead


For years now, the plans for a high-speed rail network in California have been out there, inching forward slowly with occasional financial roadblocks along the way.

2013 Chevy Volt Adds Miles to Its Range


The new 2013 Chevy Volt, which goes on http://www.auburg.de/viagra-price sale in August, will have added miles to its electric range and http://www.accessibleadventuresvt.org/mail-order-levitra greater efficiency overall. GM tinkered with the chemistry of the lithium-ion battery pack as well as its size and composition to tramadol with no prescription get it to an EPA rating of 38 all-electric miles, up from 35 for last year's Volt, getting the levitra alternative car ever closer to its own target of 40 miles of electric range.

The additional range has led to a nice jump in the electric fuel rating to 98 mpg-e from 94 mpg-e. The gas engine will deliver 340 miles of range once the battery has been depleted.

Avoiding specifics, GM's director of Global Battery Systems Engineering Bill Wallace compared the battery to a cake batter, saying, "We’ve done some work at the cell level to modify the ‘ingredients’ to make a better end result."

The downside of this slightly extended range is that the battery will take a smidgen more time to viagra india charge. Using a 120-volt outlet, the battery will charge in 10.5 hours up from 10 and if using a 240-volt charger, drivers will be looking at 4.25 hours up from 4 even.

The good news is that even with upgrades the price of http://www.unifem.it/generic-cialis-online the Volt will remain the same at $39,995.

All-Electric Sea Plane Takes Flight

A single-seat, all-electric sea plane has successfully taken its first test flight. The FlyNano was originally designed as a hybrid electric/petrol engine "fun flyer" craft, but with advances in batteries and electric motors since its debut over a year ago, the FlyNano has instead gone all-electric.

The FlyNano features a lightweight carbon-fiber body and has a cruising speed of 87 mph. The rudders are controlled by pedals and the link for you cheap cialis on line throttle and steering are controlled by a stick. The one thing it's lacking? A windshield. But the company is generic cialis online canada using this as a selling point with the philosophy of "feel the wind" and recommending helmet and goggles when flying.

Sea planes aren't exactly high priority on the list of transportation modes we'd like to see get an all-electric makeover -- it's pretty equal with electric jet skis -- but any transistion away from fossil fuels is welcome and, well, the sea plane is pretty cool.

The Finnish makers of FlyNano hope to get the plane on the market by the end of next year with a price tag of $40,000.
