I am expanding on some ideas I was pointing out on the Premium side of the DOW.
Those not knowing the Premium side we members insist on only talking about real now applied Technology’s focused on the actual user, using right now. Usually about 30-50% DOW activity is there.
Supplantation I am using as a newer produced Technology gradually replacing the previous in-use developed Tech.
Think digital audio/visual as now gradually replacing hard media in disc drives. Disc drives optical/magnetic previously supplanting tape storage. Tape storage having supplanted vinyl and pre-vinyl (baklite?) and wire audio; and celluloid video recordings.
This change over transition always takes time in years. The too edgy of the new: failing. Rejected. The best of the old previous still used until completely worn out. ONLY then replaced with the best use-proven newer Tech.
So on the Premium side I was saying that the early 1990’s to mid 1990’s vehicle engines Tech’s was the high point of best vehicles to woodgas convert. That the late 90’s and certainly now into the 2000’s vehicle engine and transmission production Tech’s were probably not going to be woodgas feasible for too many reasons.
That there was probably going to have to be a big jump from using 90’s, pre-90’s vehicles until down the road EV’s were “ubiquitous” (existing, or seeming to exist everywhere). Then the best in-use proven of those stationary woodgas home recharged.
Read Ray Menke and Pelletpower JoepK. here on the DOW for this direction.
We as functioning societies cannot afford to replace out our whole vehicles in-use at a rate greater than ~5% of the total in-use annually.
Forcing changes faster will lead to social-financial bankruptcies.
Read this article I had put up showing just how fuel specific the newest production engine system were. NOT going to adapt over to alternative fuel at all DIY.
Now especially scroll to that articles ending comment section.
The gamut of beliefs systems here expressed.
Forcing rapid change over to full top-down EV systems. We must. You must.
To appreciative that some company was willing to invest into keeping the gasoline use, still improving; and all regulations demanded compliant.
My belief is Tech change-overs should be pulled along by our own individual pocket book selections. And I demand selections. And the ability to make my own.
