Default Infrastructure is here already.

No infrastructure? Your are joking right?. Diesel cars and trucks exist... Diesel filling stations exist... Biodiesel plants exist and new ones are coming online everyday... biodiesel facilities are simple to build and operate as compared with nuclear plants and oil shale plants... No hydrogen stations exist to speak of.

That's what my friend gets with his ST-4. I has a few, ahem, modifications, but we got that kind of mileage coming down 101 at just under a 100 on a hot day. My VFR usually gets a bit less, but stangely, got almost exactly the same when we were risking arrest for a tank or two. We were keeping pretty steady throttles and hardly used the brakes. Maybe that's the secret.

No matter what the subject of the thread you just know that Kbioweasel is going to turn it into some sort of frigging manifesto.
