I like the way you pull at and pick and expose the problems with battery, solar and hybrid power. A problem needs to be pulled apart in order to understand it.

Anyone that goes into electric or hybrid propulsion without the knowledge of its limitations is a fool.

I'm practical.

If you want to spend the bucks and be a pioneer that's fine with me. But it isn't economically feasible as of yet. It makes a new diesel engine for conventional propulsion seem pretty inexpensive.
