“First of all ask yourself why solar panel still cost approximately USD $ 3.60 per produced watt compared to $0.50 per watt for petroleum powered generators.”

elnav,isn’t the $3.60/watt-solar, a one time cost, whereas $.50/watt for petroleum isn’t.i’m new to this but that doesn’t seem to be a fair comparison. what did i miss? also, i love the idea of methane for motors, how much pressure is required to run an ic motor? i’ve heard it’s tricky, and dangerous to compress it very much without good cooling etc…using it for cooking sounds easy with no special equipment.
