Best line...

"Everybody's concerned about the electrical side, but could you imagine if we
tried to bring gasoline out today as a motor fuel?"

Or introduced the 4 stoke IC engine.  It would be laughed at.

It all depends on what it would be replacing.  An IC engine is a whole
lot better than a steam or sterling engine for automotive use, for
instance.  Right now, it's the best thing we have.  Hopefully, fuel
cells will become the energy converter of choice.

If we had the Rotary engine as standard.


Sterling?  Not the current crop.  Many of these are very suitable for auto
use. Also coupled with an electric motor (hybrid) they would really shine.


I diasagree. The Rotary, still has the edge in many respects.


Seems unlikely in the near future. Always 5 years off, and have been for
past 15 years.

Appears a good interim solution.
