       Why?

       I think this idea is better than the other one. Its streamlined. The idea is understood as stated.   

       ALTHOUGH, as already stated, why? Just because something is "cool," and it would probably work, there is nothing immediately present here that makes this a good idea. But seriously, you're going in the right direction with your idea structure,

       [trav], this is the last idea in your list? What happen. Butter make it count, bub.

       //nothing immediately present here that makes this a good idea//   

       except methane emitting 30% less CO2 than diesel, and fuel-cell efficiency being about 1.5x that of diesel+generator ?

       A data curve of annoyance is an offset of the graph that plots idea valuation. Learn etiquette first, people are forgiving if the trying is honest. Remember change from the inside will always mean a bit of self change.
