Hydrogen Road Tour Goes Cross Country

On Monday, eleven hydrogen powered vehicles headed out of Portland, Maine, on their way to Los Angeles, California as part of the Hydrogen Road Tour. Making 31 stops in 18 states, the trip intends to act like the Johnny Appleseed of hydrogen, spreading little nuggets of order propica information about hydrogen-powered cars as they go across the country.


Sponsors include nine automakers (Nissan, BMW, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai-Kia, Toyota, Volkswagen, and DaimlerChryser…you know…the biggies), the US Department of Energy, the California Fuel Cell Partnership, the National Hydrogen Association, and the Department of Transportation – in other words, it’s a pretty huge publicity stunt.


The publicity circles around the idea that we make enough hydrogen to power millions of cars already, it’s a clean burning fuel source, and hydrogen vehicles are on their way. We’ve been hearing that for a good long time, though researchers, automakers, politicians, hey even Jamie Lee Curtis thinks it’s true. But…does hydrogen beat EVs charged with renewably generated electricity? I think not. Plus, charging stations are likely easier to throw up than hydrogen refuling stations.



At any rate, the tour is cialis delivery attempting to tell people that hydrogen-powered cars are not perfect yet, but are a viable option for near-future vehicles. We’ll see…

Plus, charging stations are likely easier to throw up than hydrogen refuling stations.

To be fair, that would be counterbalanced by the fact that getting the buy cialis fedex shipping hydrogen into the car would be easier than charging a battery, in terms of how long you'd have to wait. Unless, of course, they come up with extremely fast-charging batteries -- or the mythical super-ultra-hyper capacitor.

Then again, a device that would produce massive amounts of hydrogen from grid electricity reliably and only today levitra on line cheaply may well be just as far off. And of course, the station would consume some 4x the electricity from the grid to provide the same benefit to its customers; that together with the extra equipment would mean at least 4x the price...

Anyways, to get back down to earth, in the near term, those stations are going to be supplying gasoline to hybrid EVs.

In the mid-term, they will supply biofuels to best cialis price hybrid EVs.

In the long term, they may supply hydrogen ... to hybrid EVs.

That's if the battery capacity hits a ceiling that's still to low for a days' worth of driving. If not, people won't be using charging stations hardly at all, except for emergencies. Gas stations' market would narrow down to large utility or freight-hauling trucks. Those might make good use of getting viagra hydrogen.

Basically, hydrogen will be the competition for biofuels, not batteries. And I say "will be." Not there yet.
Just an idea.

Just a suggestion,
How about putting up solar voltic cells along side and in the middle of all the highways/freeways/motorways thats already there, that way we could run the cable's along the roads ( no need to cover and use more land, easier to to dig without further permits and so on ) and we could use the electricity to produce hydrogen to fill in the cars, and recharge the batteries in the hybrids too. This way, it would not be hard to replace a lot of the petrol used today.
We could ad a 10 cent/pr gallon fee for tanking gas, and as soon as you had contributed say 100$ you would get a share in the new userowned factory producing the solar cells needed for the project, and since you own part of it, you would be getting some of (if not all) your money back as soon as the production started to pay off itself.
If the U.S.A is using 3,3 mill gallons a day, there would be enough money to buy land and start building the factory in around 100-150 days, a year and the first solar cells would be ready for mounting alongside roads, good idea to viagra gel online without prescription start with desert roads, and east/west roads where there is a lot of sun. Not much discussion about inviromental impact as the roads you are adding a bit of shade to is already there, and for every kwh produced you will be saving some petrol somewhere. Surplus electricity could be sold to the grid as roads ( where the new cables run along ) go through towns already it would be easy to plug them into the local grid. In a few years you could be producing Gwh's and the initial investment is already done so the payoff will be fast, heck in 10 years you cold be making money on this because you bought petrol to begin with. Later when all roads are covered in cells, you could cover buildings to, and use some money to fund research into more efficient solar cells, cars and batteries. Heck even buy some of the old used coalpowerplants and cheap canadian viagra convert them to use hydrogen as fuel instead, then you could produce the how much does viagra cost hydrogen in the daytime from the solar power, and burn it in the nighttime so you would have power 24/7.
As I said, just an idea, feel free to use it anytime.
just an idea sounds familar

Mumia comments sound very close to order cheap on line levitra an idea that's been discussed at some universities.Similar but not quit the same.The added tax for gasoline would be to pay for a transition to alternative transportation such as mass transit systems that can load your electric car for long distances. The solar panels along the road is in the works in Florida on only for you cheap viagra canada a state road,but not to produce hydrogen.Many people have thought of that one,solar panels on the highway why not go the extra step and put solar panels on the high voltage power line towers and on the ground under the towers.

why don't more city buses use hydrogen, battery, etc.? I live in Duluth MN and they recently added 2 hybrid buses to their fleet. These vehicles have known routes, really don't travel far from their hubs... why aren't they all hydrogen or battery?
Electric motors

I'd like to see carmakers focus on moving our wheels with electric motors that run off batteries that could either be charged via buy cialis online from canadacheap cialis tablets plug-in or with another engine (for longer hauls). In the short term, that engine would likely be a small gasoline engine, but ultimately could be converted to or retrofitted as a hydrogen powered engine. I'm no engineer, but I have faith in our ingenuity. Let's get on it!

When the public finds out the real costs of liquid hydrogen, not the tramadol ecstasy online costs in the Shell stations in DC and Sacramento for the politicians, the hydrogen hoax will be over. How does over $50 per gallon of best price thailand tramadol gas equivalent strike you all. Check out the link above on how to bestellen levitra online make a quick fortune on the scam. It was just a "Shell" game of bait and switch to put off gas mileage standards and kill the electric car that is more energy efficient and lower costs. Very Respectfully, Michael
