[Gizmag] Breakthrough promises $1.50/ gallon synthetic gasoline, no carbon emissions - Page 6

post #51 of 87
1.50$ a gallon is great and all but I have to add two requirements.
It must be compatible with my G8 with out harming it and it must produce the same power as at-least normal gas (93 octane).

This HAS to happen, with or without OPEC.
Screw it, let them double what they tax gas now, but at least this synthetic gas will produce no emissions where we walk.

How about we cut gas taxes in half and stop worrying about saving a dirt ball that can take care of itself? The planet will be fine; give me cheap gas.

Come to NYC, I want you to inhale what I inhale while I walk to work and see how you like it. You are a fool for thinking that we are not harming Earth with cars. The Earth is not a dirt ball, YOU ARE. The Earth is art. 'nuff said.

Claims like this seem to pop up all the time. It'd be great if it happens, but I'll only believe it when I can pay $25 at the pump instead of $50+.

The problem of extracting the hydrogen isn't all that hard, they will most likely use electrolysis. Input energy will be required but bio-reactors, nuclear reactors, and renewable energy sources can provide the electricity.



Who says they won't tax this new fuel? wink.gif

Electrolysis requires a vast amount of power to be viable. Still if they do choose to go with this method they'll pass the cost along to the consumer i'm sure.

How would this synthetic gas effect the power output of my engine?

Electrolysis might be a more costly method than reforming natural gas, but its byproduct is oxygen as opposed to carbon monoxide. With more R&D the cost of electrolysis is predicted to come down closer to other methods of hydrogen production.

At least I'm not the only one that cares about the important aspects of this fuel.

And anyone "concerned" about the environment, how about a push for less coal burning and more nuclear power.

I don't know what these guys are smoking but any time you burn something you get carbon emissions. So unless they've found a way to make a gasoline that, when burned in a standard engine, just sends the CO2 produced into the ether, it's full of -beep-.

Not necessarily. If it's a 100% burn, there's nothing left, especially emissions.

Right?

Nope. I would think that the exhaust from the combustion should be water though. No carbon though as carbon isn't the fuel.
