Re: Fuel Cell
"it cost nearly $100.00 to get from MA to ME due to the fact that it had to go FedEX and was classified as Haz Mat shipping." Did you look into motor freight, instead of the usual brand name package services? Or Greyhound? They used to carry almost anything dirt cheap, as long as you could get it to one bus station and pick it up at another one.
Gotta be a way the local hardware store gets all their solvents trucked in, without paying $50/gallon in shipping.
(Aside from the larger economics.)
