Russell Roberts‘s insight:

This could be a game changer in the transportation business.  Effective Friday, 07 June 2013, the Ford Motor Company began production of its 6.8 liter, V-10 hydrogen-fueled engines.  According to a Ford press release, Ford is the "first automaker to do so."  The supercharged V-10 engine will power Ford’s E-450 hydrogen-fueled shuttle buses.  Keep an eye on this development.  Hydrogen is the most abundant fuel in the universe.  There are problems, however.  Hydrogen must be cooled in a pressurized tank before it can be used.  Hydrogen has a tendency to ignite when it is mixed with oxygen.  Refer to the "Hinderberg" dirigible disaster at Lakehurst , New Jersey back in 1937.  Ford, apparently, has solved this problem.  Aloha, Russ.
