Saw your interview on the BBC the other night on a trip to Helsinki. Very informative and glad to hear your optimism over EV potential. Wondered if you knew Jiri Rasanen of eCars Now! based in Helsinki. The folks who have launched a global EV conversion movement and seem to have been gaining traction. Why try to replace 1 billion cars on the road today when the technology exists to convert millions of them? I had the pleasure of meeting Jiri who gave me a preview of the upcoming EV World in that city this Nov. They plan to exhibit a number of vehicle conversions. My current car is the MINI E - at least until June. Best. mw

Agreed. I see many people building their own hydrogen generators to save money on gas bills. Seems like the trend is gonna rise soon and most of us would be running our cars on water
