From the toilet to the Toad
« on: September 21, 2016, 05:01:22 PM »
Toyota has announced a new program to make hydrogen fuel out of sewage.  If it could be scaled down to RV size, it would be a twofer - taking care of the the black tank contents while creating free fuel!   ;)

I recall reading about people (Not companies) doing just that as far back as High School. (Graduated in 1968)

From the toilet to the toad. Sounds like a country and western song. Or a political platform.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

I don't think we poop enough to keep the motorhome running. And I already eat too much!

Acceleration is also slow, due to the time lag between the fueling the hydrogen generator (me) and the fuel reaching the power plant.

Greetings,

Maybe in the future, we'll see RV's along the road that will be waiting for the occupants to "go" before they can resume their travels.  ;D
