Im 15 minutes from Wauseon, and I have no idea where this magical magic engine factory is...

Also my dad sold doug pelmear a '64 fairlane station wagon several years back, does that mean Ill see it cruising around getting 100+ mpg sometime soon?

“He couldn’t deliver the plans for the engine so we had to consider other options,” Collorafi said.

Revenge Designs announced its withdrawal of all support and funding to HP2g on May 12 due to numerous requests for third party validations to the claims of its 110 MPG hybrid engine. The company received no response to its requests for documentation, Collorafi said.

I bet the problem is with the shiitakereator. Either that or they've hit a wall trying to synch up the bi-magistorometers with the vinylstickions.

The Crescent News of Defiance and WNDH of Napoleon are reporting that a $300,000 loan given to Revenge Designs by a Henry County Commissioner was not handled properly. All of the paperwork was not signed by proper county officials.

Peter Collorafi says he intends to return the $300,000 but so far none has been returned.

BTW for bhazard: The HP2G factory in Wauseon is on Linfoot Street. It is pretty much right across the street from Stelhorn's Pizza in the Fulton Industries complex. I'm guessing they are renting space from Fulton Industries. Whether they are producing anything there is another issue, but they do have HP2G signs on the door.

The Blade isn't interested in revealing the whole truth. I guess they think the truth doesn't make for as juicy a story.

He is moving forward with efforts to manufacture an electronic component of his technology to sell on a retail level, he said. He hopes to begin selling an aftermarket component that would add variable displacement - sequentially shutting off cylinders when they aren't needed.

He estimated the price for the component would be around $7,500, and said he hoped to begin selling and installing them in vehicles by the end of the year.
I have some "becta" my son (7) gave me. Apparently it makes me into a Jedi Knight. I suspect this will be variable from the limit that salad imposes on me.

Hmmm, whats that smell again ? Who let the cows in ?
