Sure, 500cc single cylinder diesel on a governer driving a generator powering an electric motor driving the car.





100+ mpg and minimal emissions with no heavy and dangerous storage batteries to worry about, no explosive hydrogen gases, no cadmium or lithium poisening the ground. no need to build more power plants to supply the added electrical load when everyone plugs their car in



Think they'll ever figure that one out? Probably too easy for them

I say that the alt fuel MotoGP bike may as well run on Socko's immense reservoir of smug self-satisfaction or possibly his onaniastic tendencies. (yes, I know - I STILL can't spell)

An early supervisor of mine told me "Good spellers make bad engineers and good engineers are bad spellers". I immediately started mispelling at least one word in every piece of correspondence. I may have been a good speller and a bad engineer but I wasn't stoopid.

The worst is when you run it threw a spell checker and you think you caught everything and you post it and then you see you used the word "will" instead of "while".
