Agreed. I'm more in favor of alternative fuel. My basic standard is this--I'll drive whatever as long is it can go offroad, go around 250 miles without re-charging/re-fueling, isn't a tiny passenger compartment and can go up to 90 miles per hour. Mostly hydrogen or ethanol will work for the above. My point about the batteries is that no matter what you propose, the enviro-nazis will always have a gripe about it.
