" Sure, it takes energy to make hydrogen and store it in this form, but
" then you are released from the binds of a portable liquid fuel. Now
" anything that gives you electricity can power your *current production*
" car. This is not future fantasy.

yeah, but you're stuck with the binds of a portable -gaseous- fuel, or
portable adsorbed-hydride fuel...

and your current production car must be modified to run off hydrogen.
what do you have to do to run a diesel car off biodiesel?  pour it
into the tank.  you don't need to undo the tremendous fuel supply
infrastructure either.

" This means you can power the car you own today from solar, wind, nuclear
" and fossil power.

nearly every car today - certainly imports - have diesel versions.
i'd rather dieselize and run biodiesel.
