Well we had spoken about the factoid of a single biofield 500 miles on
each side would provide for the US fuel needs, but diesels have a
particulate problem whereas hydrogen is super-clean burning.

In any oil replacement strategey I think we will have to see a diversity
of solutions to provide sufficient capacity. I don't think one solution
will meet the needs.

If you read the details of the United Nuclear website it appears that he
has a good workable solution. And onboard hydride fuel is safer than
gasoline storage.

As for national infrastructure, the UN website mentions having a hydride
generator in your garage. No infrastructure needed.

There are may workable replacement now and coming in the future. I
believe that many will have a place in the fuel scheme.
