Hundreds of Miles Per Gallon
: Fareed Zacharia joins in and gets the vision: "the car of the future, a plug-in hybrid with a flexible-fuel tank". The engine has to be flexible with fuel, accepting ethanol, methanol, and gasoline, and the hybrid has to be "pluggable" so that it can use low-cost nighttime electricity. With much less fuel required, a high proportion can be non-petroleum derived (ie, ethanol, biodiesel, methanol, etc) so that hundreds of miles per gallon of petroleum products becomes possible -- all with today's technology. Naturally, FZ wants this mostly for national security reasons, but greenhouse gases would be reduced as well. 10:13:18 PM
