Article :Local electric/ethanol car definitely a labour of love

I came across this article on a small Winnipeg car which resembles a HPV .
Cool project ! I wish them the best of luck .

Local electric/ethanol car definitely a labour of love - Winnipeg Free Press


I got interested when i first saw this image. I thought i was looking at the back end of a highly streamlined car .


And here is the other article on it :

Pity there aren't any Cd or FE numbers. But i like it, very simple & neat.

Gerhard Plattner: "The best attitude is to consider fuel saving a kind of sport. Everybody who has enough money for a strong car, can drive fast and hit the pedal. But saving fuel requires concentration, self-control and cleverness. It's a challenge with the nice effect of saving you money that you can use for other more important things."

Hat is off to those guys.
Check your tire pressure - keep it up !!

We've learned that diet has a closer relationship to cancer than we ever thought. Please see this Wikipedia article on The China Study.

Driving '96 Accord DX. Planning on an Elio enclosed three-wheeler, due out 3rd-4th quarter 2015.

Urbee 3d printed car

It's curious that the article makes no mention of the 3D printed body. It's supposed to be the first (or second) ever produced.
