What are we going to do when gas gets to $20.00 a gallon

I've been in a college personal finance class and today we talked about future things to invest in and the topic of automobiles came up. Someone brought up some things to purchase in the stocks and electric cars were on.

Is the performance industry going to crazy in 20 years? Will there no long be such a thing called a weekly driver?

Just some food for thought I hope that statistics are wrong and we can keep are cars and have fun in the future to come.

in my opinion in 20 years we wont be using gas. we will be using biofuels that will be able to replace gas.

Also a consideration. Hopefully we can still have high performance with alternative fuels.

That's a relief to hear. I know very little on converting something to a biofuel or alternative fuel.

My assumption would be to convert the fuel lines and pump.

My uncle runs a diesel fuel injection and pump shop. Lately 90 percent of his business has been caused by fuel. He said the Bio diesel customers have the worst problems.

I was joking about some of what I posted, but I am going to build a hydrogen bubbler and try it on my Ranger pickup. If it works there, then I may even put one on the Mustang.

http://www.gizmag.com/isobutanol-bio...acteria/18106/

this research is basically using bacteria to produce isobutanol from corn stalks and isobutanol can be mixed in any ratio with gas and may be able to run without gas. from what i understood it would just need more fuel compared to gas.

Another type of alcohol. Requires a specialized fuel system to handle the alcohol which produces a corrosive byproduct when mixed with any moisture in the fuel system.


Takes around twice as much alcohol to produce the same energy as gasoline.
