We're all aware that, if we don't shift to more renewable sources of energy, we'll eventually deplete the reserves of fossil fuels that power our vehicles today. If only there was a car that could run on any organic material...and took its name from an adorable semiaquatic North American mammal. Introducing the Beaver XR7, the world's fastest wood-powered car.

      This is perhaps the dumbest idea of all time for mass application. You first you have to heat a furnace upto the 2400 degree temp and then pump some output into the engine, which is then burned in the engine to power the car. Huh? Energy inefficiency on steroids. What do you get for this "technology"? Millions of acres of ravaged forests. How earth friendly could you get? If our cars were running around with this system today, petroleum would be treated as a godsend.

      Stanley Meyer's H2O powered car is the best patented technology for energy conservation. Too bad USA auto makers aren't brave enough to do the smart and most $$$ making change in history. We need more George Westinghouse people who were smart to support Nicholas Tesla to rise above the ethnocultural bias and short-sightedness of the elite.

      That's not very good to claim 55 mph and not even show the speedometer in the video.

      Very interesting but not new; I saw the same principal used in Japan in 1950. There they used charcoal.
