 .

With the exception of, whatever emissions are generated from a Diesel engine running on veggie oil at the proper viscosity, I’m hopping for a zero  emissions vehicle (i.e. the Tesla with the on-board diesel generator), and ultimately less direct and in-direct lifecycle impact in crude oil production and in the mass disposal of lithium batteries.

On the other hand, electric vehicle makers have consistently found lifecycle emissions of electric vehicles to be no worse than conventional vehicles. We haven’t gotten to mass production yet, so I wonder if perhaps we’ve bitten off more than we can chew when these get to the end of their lifecycles.

Doing some quick calculations, I figure that 14 g/s/km2 CH4 would be the equivalent of 280 g/s/km2 CO2.
Now, remove the natural gas well and drop in a 19 mpg 2014 Subaru Impreza on a circular track, encircling 1 km2, doing 60 mph, all day and all night, for years on end. 19 mpg generates approximately 280 g/mi CO2, which would be the equivalent of 14 g/s/km2 CH4.
Finally, boost that number by how many km2 the methane emissions are occurring, and it’s scary. The researchers’ flyover area was 2,800 km2, Imagine 2,800 2014 Subaru Imprezae running in circles, day and night, for years on end, with nobody in them.
I don’t know if that answers your question at all.
(No, I have nothing against Subaru, I just picked the first 19 mpg car on fueleconomy.gov)

The diesel engine was invented to run on peanut oil and converted to run on (then cheap) fossil fuel.  It was actually an oily by-product of the gasoline refinery process.  But even at that, petroleum based diesel is a mere 40 octane (which has to emit less harmful exhaust then 80+ octane gasoline).

By definition, an internal combustion ENGINE “creates” energy, whereas an electric MOTOR “uses” energy.  With the new technology in electric motors and the convergence of AC/DC technologies, electric vehicle “motors” are now creating energy.  By using lithium batteries, the point of diminishing returns will certainly follow, as these batteries represen future disposal problems.

When we incorporate the technology of the new AC/DC motors into the new AC/DC “generators”, with the exception of the fuel, we can realistically approach “perpetual motion” on a large scale.  Since the fuel is veggie based and can literally replenish itself overall environmental impact will be 100% more beneficial to the future.  

Total elimination of the battery pack is not the intent, nor is halting the extraction of millions of barrels of crude oil per day.  But if the increasing need for these batteries can cause future problems, then lets move forward  -  no R&D, no mysteries, let’s just do it.

As I said, don’t have the $$$ to set up manufacturing, but I’ll buy a Tesla, convert it with an on-board TDI Diesel Generator running on veggies.  If we can put a man on the moon. . . . .  . etc, etc, etc.

Since I have more common sense than money, I will purchase the Tesla and incorporate a (design/build) on-board “TDI DIESEL, 100% VEGGIE-FUELED ‘BACK-UP’ GENERATOR” with an oversized fuel tank.  I will then grow and refine agricultural crops dedicated to fuel production and refinement, leaving zero waste (residuals are seeds for replanting, compost, and food).

Because of the TDI Diesel’s relatively low compression, reliability, and huge fuel tank, the result should yield an electric vehicle with a range easily in excess of 1,000 miles.  If GM is the least aggressive environmentally friendly car manufacturer in the world, yet they have grasped the concept of the on-board generator, that can provide the electricity to drive motors, that run the vehicle, then why not move to the “ON-BOARD, TDI DIESEL GENERATOR”, but ONLY if it’s fueled by 100% veggie fuel.  New concept, new efficiency, new industry and new jobs.

The question remains:  Can lithium ion batteries, in electric cars, eventually be eliminated (as a bonus)?

Pfft where did you get these numbers? In a dream? The fact is the current Volt averages around 100 mpg combined electric and gas assist electric so, the most fuel efficient gas engine car currently sold that also seats 4 and has room for luggage. I’d say the more likely Volt 2.0 “may” deliver up to 50 miles on a single charge and up the gas only mileage from around 40 mpg to 50 mpg, perhaps with a 5th seat. Of course this too is only speculation from an actual Volt owner who currently is averaging over 120 mpg.

Transportation is getting from Point A to Point B, and burning more fossil fuels to get there is ignoring the bigger picture. this is a societal problem, not just the supercar crowd, so i’m not picking on anyone here.
actually, Toyota’s new lineup of Atkinson-cycle engines is supposed to be just as effective on the road as the old Otto-cycle engines, but more fuel-efficient: http://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/04/11/toyotas-new-engines-improve-fuel-efficiency/ the average Otto-cycle on the road today is just barely 25% efficient, but Toyota’s new Atkinson-cycle lineup is 37% efficient (for the conventional version). Ford and other companies are going for tiny turbocharged engines, which is supposed to deliver good performance as well as fuel efficiency.
also, hybrid and electric vehicles don’t have to be as “soulless as a Prius” as you assert, but can easily put your seat even better than a 6.2ℓ monstrosity can.

We’ve proven it works and in doing so brings fish populations back to historic high numbers. Our 2012 project that restored a large ocean salmon pasture in the Gulf of Alaska has been shown to have produced an ocean of health and abundance. Last fall the fish swam home and in SE Alaska 226 million salmon were caught when official predictions expected 50 million fish. This bounty of our ocean pasture fed salmon is the largest number of salmon caught in all of Alaska history and they survived and grew on the ocean plankton that converted millions of tonnes of deadly CO2 into ocean life and those hundreds of millions of extra fish. http://russgeorge.net/2013/10/28/fish-came-back-next-day/

Here’s a story on how 60 million meals of our healthy pasture fed Alaska salmon are now on their way into USDA food aid programs in the USA. http://russgeorge.net/2014/04/09/usda-buys-pasture-fed-alaska-salmon-hungry-kids/

IT JUST WORKS. And the task before us now is to replenish and restore ocean pastures around the world, re-purposing billions of tonnes of deadly CO2 into billions of healthy ocean fish to help feed the world’s hungry. http://russgeorge.net/2014/04/11/bring-back-fish-everywhere/

Put jug in the refrigerator to cool and allow the bio-oil to separate from the water. If the oil is miscible in water (depends on atomic mass and structure), then you are screwed and you need to pick a new algal strain or invest in a still to separate the two components. Recycle the biomass (do not let it dry out) into fresh medium, and repeat. After a few batches the system can be optimized.

That’s the exact same thing that people said about airplanes, nuclear warheads, and basically everything else we enjoy today.
At one point, gravity went against the “laws of physics”
At one point, physics itself was wrong, because it didn’t comply with the Bible.

So how can you sit there and say “It defied our current laws of physics, so it will never be possible”?

As far as I am concerned, it’s people like that who deserve to be shunned. 

Great job contributing to the scientific community idiots!

And to the people who believe in this technology, thanks for not being the people I mentioned above.

The first people to invent airplanes were told “It defies the laws of physics, it’s not possible and never will be, and you deserve to die for trying to change things”

If airplanes are against the laws of physics, I guess I am freaking Jesus, because I just stepped off of one 3 hours ago.

Seriously people, this is real, this is not a scam. I’ve made a small version of these “free energy generators” and it’s been going for 2 months.

My designs or trying to replicated others. SO far, non are working and those on the web havent been found to to real either. Perhaps someday, My project will work. I have been close a few times, but it still didint work. Its a lot of fun and a bit expensive for a weekend hobby.

The Leaf has a pony battery? I know the hybrids do, but you’re right, the Model S uses a converter for all 12V stuff, which feeds off the main battery pack.

A coast mode on EVs would be nice, but when you’re talking about the masses who use EVs, not all of them are as savvy as you, but they’re getting there!

All the other EVs take a little bit of juice out of the 12v battery (e.g., for the alarm system, so if you go away for a month put it on a float charger), but the main traction packs draw nothing and thus no effect on range.

Regarding coasting: note that I said “unless you need to slow down”. Think about it, if you regenerate you then slow down and then subsequently you must pull energy back out of the pack in order to get back up to speed. Nothing more efficient than coasting in neutral using zero power. Regen is great in city traffic where you’re forced to slow down,  or on downhills when you need to keep speed under check, but for regular highway driving an inordinate amount of concentration is required to keep the car out of regen, which is why I wish EVs had a “zero regen” mode.

Regarding weight: note that I said “unless you have stop-and-go-driving”, and I should have included hills as well (although you get a good part of the energy back by regenning going back down the hill). Yes, weight matters getting the vehicle up to speed in the first place, but on a level highway aerodynamic drag predominates and cargo weight’s contribution to rolling resistance is a second-order effect.

I think what I was trying to say was, basically, don’t leave the car unplugged for a week and wonder why your range sucks.

You got me thinking on the coasting vs regenerating in an EV. Coasting makes sense with start-stop engines and conventional vehicles, but isn’t regenerative braking better than coasting in an EV? From what I gather, regenerative braking recovers like 99% of the car’s kinetic energy, which is used on acceleration again. I was under the assumption there was not nearly as much loss as simply coasting. Don’t most EVs go into regen as soon as you let off the accelerator, anyways?

I have to disagree with you on cargo, however. Indeed, while cruising we’re only talking a couple of percentage points difference loaded vs unloaded, but including acceleration of the load, that’s gonna get you every time.

That makes sense but you have to account for frictions there too so the device should stop at some point and it doesn’t in any reasonable time in the video so I believe there is a trick. Some external hidden power sources like a compressor or airflow. But it’s very well disguised I must admit. By all accounts if such a device works the author should be applying for a Nobel prize. Why doesn’t it come out for the honour?

No 1 is indeed speed, and allied with this is lead-footing. HOW you, as an individual, drive the car is of paramount importance and the largest variable in a vehicle’s range. Coasting wherever possible and avoiding regeneration (unless you actually need to slow down and stop) are just a couple of the many hypermiling tricks that work equally well on ICE, hybrids, and EVs.
No. 2 is heater usage, as the traction battery pack is the only energy source and a heater set to maximum consumes the same amount of power as is needed to move the car (at a speed which varies with vehicle). Solution is to pre-heat the car before you get into it and use the seat heater. Some manufacturers are addressing this issue by utilizing efficient heating systems. Aircon robs a much lesser amount of energy than heater use, again, dependent on manufacturer.
How you charge a car has nothing to do with its range, although charging using 240vac (L2) is slightly more efficient than 120vac (L1) because less time is spent keeping the car’s fixed power consumers active.
Cargo matters little unless you have a lot of stop-and-go driving. Once the vehicle is moving, its weight doesn’t have much effect
All other energy consumers such a radio, lights, heated car seats, etc. eat an order-of-magnitude less energy than it takes to move the car.

Comment on Google Ventures Funds Cool Planet to Produce Carbon-Negative Biofuels by beepeehttp://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/04/02/google-ventures-funds-start-produce-carbon-negative-biofuels/#comment-41197 Thu, 03 Apr 2014 03:54:35 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=46783#comment-41197 Mila,
The diesel
engine was introduced, I’m told, at the 1900 World’s Fair, running on peanut
oil.  Since then, the diesel engine has
been converted to run on “petroleum based” diesel (a by-product of gasoline
refinement).
Producing
Veggie Fuels, strictly for diesels would certainly not interfere with food
production, and would certainly not jeopardize agricultural production of any
kind.
Veggie fuel
production on a massive national scale would be accepted by all peoples and
industry once everyone realizes one fact:
Electric
motors can now propel autos (AC or DC); and an on-board veggie fueled TDI diesel
generator can provide electric for those motors (all but eliminating lithium
batteries).
As we speak
VW will produce a “hybrid” auto getting over 200mpg; Cadillac ELR plug-in is an
EV with a “gas” powered generator (close, good attempt); and Tesla is an EV that desperately
needs an on-board TDI diesel generator (hopefully running on Veggie fuel).
The concept
is pretty basic and the veggie planting, harvesting and refining can be set-up
nationally, along the line of Tesla’s recharging and battery swapping stations –
controlled, of course, by the oil companies (to offset the reduction in
drilling)

I believe Weyerhaeuser is replanting either retired or abandoned farmland (formerly used to produced food plants), which requires little or no irrigation.  In addition, this new process would establish an entirely new and competitive industry that would create thousands upon thousands of jobs and desperately needed new career paths.

I apologize for being so compassionate, but I am retired from the Bureau of Reclamation, Central Valley Project in Northern California.  Though, in times of drought any system can be stressed, but otherwise the CVP is a harmony of precision and perfection.

interesting concept.  The exception is
that there has already been enough auto industry plastic generated.  Newly instituted compulsory recycling, could
supply all the future auto industry needs. 
Just as a dismantler primarily resells automotive parts, their secondary
function should become recycling the remaining auto materials.  After all, at the dismantler level, the
obsolete vehicles are already staged and rubber, glass, plastics, and metals
can be easily separated for distribution. 
Remember, the U.S. exports tons of “scrap” metals.  A new concept:  Old cars used, to make new cars.
UPM Grada,
Raflatac, Formi together, in concert with “100% used/recycled” auto
plastics/metals/glass is a concept that can be phased-in, in a manner that
benefits both business and the consumer. 

UPM Bio
Verno will work in unison with classic veggie-diesel fuels.  What they both have in common is that they
both can become an “engineered” natural “renewable” resource.  Both the wood-based and the veggie-based

Comment on Is Tesla Motors the Tortoise to the Automotive Industry’s Hare? by beepeehttp://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/03/19/tesla-motors-tortoise-automotive-industrys-hare/#comment-41168 Mon, 31 Mar 2014 18:13:56 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=46561#comment-41168 PROBLEM:  Everybody hates big business and big government for the same reasons.  Tesla doesn’t have this problem.

 I am a “Poster-Boy” for GM and it’s products.  I’ve
purchased the 2003 Cadillac CTS (credited for turning Caddy and GM around
 - this just simply means that I can “see”.  But while
waiting for Cadillac’s ELR plug-in for two years, I purchased, early 2013 the
Lincoln MKZ non plug-in Hybrid, which is mechanically a Toyota hybrid clone,
and is a disappointment on many levels, but costs literally half (MSRP $35k)
what GM’s ELR base costs.
Inter Tesla:
I have seen the Tesla
“body-off”.  Trust me, it’s a great concept, but it’s not filled
with any advanced technology.  GM’s plug-in technology is close, as is
Tesla’s, but as concepts go, neither is very radical, and both are steeped in
“old” technology (seems “new” only in a stale automotive
market).
NOTICE:
I am
looking for a “GM” (or even a Tesla) to come forth and work with me
to develop a product that will literally “put Tesla to sleep”,
thereby rendering there “direct-sales” approach moot by eliminating
the specter of the “carbon footprint” and at the same time arresting
the tyrannical hand of the EPA (for now, anyway).  We can mass produce and EV with a reduced carbon footprint, and can offer such an EV for half the price of a Tesla (and zero emissions, for now).  No lithium ion batteries or petroleum based fuel as we know today

So
Bill, I’m looking to be put in touch with the GM innovators that
can think way beyond their ELR and incorporate my new approach to
automotive/transportation technology.  
Once a major concern, i.e. GM, improves on the
Tesla “model”, others will certainly follow.  The consumer
will ultimately benefit because marketing a more efficient “Tesla”
at half the cost, will prompt consumers to abandon Tesla - everything is
easy. . . . to someone (it’s vision dependent).

Comment on To Combat Climate Change, We Should Cut Off Meat and Dairy, Study Says by JOE MATTHIShttp://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/03/31/combat-climate-change-cut-meat-dairy/#comment-41167 Mon, 31 Mar 2014 14:07:46 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=46728#comment-41167 Garbage science is so destructive, if you have a predisposition to the out come of a study then you simply leave out the things that you don’t want to factor in. The corn the soybeans, the wheat etc, etc, all represent sequestered carbon prior to being used for live stock feed. When the products are used to feed animals including humans these animals represent sequestered carbon as long as they are alive. All life in it’s various forms on this planet produce greenhouse gases in one way or another. Termites produce tons and tons, well not exactly the bacteria in their digestive system does. The point is life produces greenhouse gases so it can be found that everything causes climate change. Besides the climate has been in a constant state of change since it began, the lie is that we have the ability and or where with all to control it. The truth is the climate change debate has little to do with the climate and more to do with money and power. The objective is to control people, what they eat what they wear what they drive how they vote and where the money and influence goes. Take for instance the carbon tax or carbon credits, the whole idea is based upon industrial nations who pollute more to pay less developed nations who pollute less. Companies who need credits (carbon credits) to continue their operation would have to purchase them from less polluting companies in order to stay in business. Now this may all sound good to some but what really happens is the planet suffers because it doesn’t stop the polluting of our world it just charges for it. So in boils down to those who can afford to pollute just keep on doing it. Where’s the advantage? The other result is the companies who can’t afford to buy carbon credits will just have to fold up and go away. So this leads to economic destruction for some but it em powers others who have positioned themselves to take advantage of the shift in power. When it all comes down to it you’ve changed nothing the climate will still change the world will still turn and all that will be accomplished is you will serve a new master who can justify anything in the name of climate change. How long will it be before they realize it’s people that are causing climate change and then it wont be “lets control them” but it will be “we must eliminate them” you are all on the path to destruction, and you will willing die in the name of climate change. Here’s my last point just exactly who are you saving it for? The planet I mean.  We have a man made water shortage in California because of a small fish that is probley destined for extinction anyway, but who will suffer? The people will. Lets get it through our heads we can not keep the world from turning, we can not halt climate change and those who are preaching we can are the ones spewing the hot air. People are and their activities are a NATURAL part of our world. We are not from Mars and not a plague to the planet.

You have to at least pay something in order to build the machine. Getting those supplies will cost you something so the energy you get isn’t completely free.

Comment on GM First Car Manufacturer to Speak Out Against Tesla Motors’ Direct Sales Model by beepeehttp://www.greenoptimistic.com/2014/03/26/tesla-motors-direct-sales-general-motors-first-speak/#comment-41153 Thu, 27 Mar 2014 19:47:35 +0000 http://www.greenoptimistic.com/?p=46673#comment-41153 This comment is directed to “Ben has been a Master Automobile Technician for over ten years”. Tesla is not the problem. I am a “Poster-Boy” for GM and it’s products.  I’ve purchased the 2003 Cadillac CTS (credited for turning Caddy and GM around  - this just simply means that I can “see”.  But while waiting for Cadillac’s ELR plug-in for two years, I purchased, early 2013 the Lincoln MKZ non plug-in Hybrid, which is mechanically a Toyota hybrid clone, and is a disappointment on many levels, but costs literally half (MSRP $35k) what GM’s ELR base costs.

Inter Tesla:
I have seen the Tesla “body-off”.  Trust me, it’s a great concept, but it’s not filled with any advanced technology.  GM’s plug-in technology is close, as is Tesla’s, but as concepts go, neither is very radical, and both are steeped in “old” technology (seems “new” only in a stale automotive market).

NOTICE:
I am looking for a “GM” (or even a Tesla) to come forth and work with me to develop a product that will literally “put Tesla to sleep”, thereby rendering there “direct-sales” approach moot by eliminating the specter of the “carbon footprint” and at the same time arresting the tyrannical hand of the EPA (for now, anyway).

So Bill, if you’re listening. . . . put me in touch with the GM innovators that can think way beyond their ELR and incorporate my new approach to automotive/transportation technology.

Another thought: surveys and polls are useless unless some action is forthcoming as a result.  I suggest if the young adults are against fracking and for wind generation, they vote for the candidates who support their view.  In most cases, this is not a Republican.

injection engine with start-stop enables full-size vehicles to offer
high fuel efficiency and great performance and all the new diesel engines coming out these days. My last one was a pain.
Looking for stations on the road. The expense of a 8 quart change every

and the extra expense of the fuel. If anyone required vehicle testing go through http://asfrizzo.com.au/licensed-vehicle-tester/

That is a myth that Nissan is using to cover the shortage of driving range in this early stage of EV adoption and development, i.e., “you don’t need the range”…I have a Leaf and believe me you suffer greatly in freeway traffic by driving in the truck lanes at 55 mph in order to extend your mileage enough to accomplish a 60 mile round trip commute.  And, I can look forward to reduced mileage as the battery pack wears.

My suggestion to all EV buyers is to lease the car at this early stage of EV adoption or wait for battery development to catch up with what is really needed for mileage before buying.
