Motorhead Messiah - Super Diesel Hacker

In that fine tradition of American inventor he hacks, mods, and wholesale upgrades huge monster vehicles into 100+ mpg technical wonders. In this month's Fastcompany they showcase H2's with aftermarket hybrids, turbine jet power trains, and hydrogen horse power.
In short. Just the idea that this guy exists is exciting to any energy geek.

The article leaves me with many questions and of course a few doubts but I'm captivated. For an eternity I have heard stories of the 100 mpg mods that never made it into the mainstream. The stories of high school science teachers who have invented super engines purchased and buried by GM and Ford. Those American super geniuses kept from their well deserved spoils of ingenuity.

This is the first time I have ever seen an actual face and name. More to the point, this is the first time I have ever seen a real person presented to back up the claim. Just makes you want to take a vacation to Missouri.
