    Was doing about 80mph on rte 390 in upstate new york last summer ,had one of those prius jobs go by me so fast i almost got out of my car, thought i stopped.The technology that went into this car is something else.Good second car good price good tech and when gas goes to four or five skins a gal ---good mileage.

    until they start approving some of the new nuclear reactors(ball bed) you wont see any hydrogen cars coming out to dealers. currently it takes more energy and polution to produce hydrogen then the car saves

    Huh, didn't know that. The concept of a Hydrogen car itself seems like a great idea.

    and if you want to be picky the hindemburg didnt light up because of the H it lit because of the meterial on the out side. the germans were very good when it came to dealing with gas(no double meaning intinded sorry). the extrior of the blimp is a foil type meterial that has a coating VERY similar to the solid rocket boosters of the space shuttle

    Rocket booster material?It was made with a cloth type material that was coated with with dope which was very inflamable. The hydrogyn was stored in sheep blatters and the explosion occured from within. What i really meant was any car getting hit in the rear,gas or hydro has the requirments to explode.No big deal.Those of you that are young may see H cars that are affordable but thats a long way off. Our problem is right now.We have to conserve any way possible and hybrids are a start in that direction.

    Ihave to correct my last post it was covered with cloth material and the material was coated with powdered aluminum and iron oxide which combined is a rocket fuel,so yes static elec. could have set it off off .
