Simultaneously, I added 2.179 equivalent gallons CNG to the H2 in one of my TuffShell tanks. This provided a mixture of approximately 75% H2 by volume with CNG to burn in my multi-fuel V-6 H2TOY Tacoma. Judy Bishop, the educational director at the RTC, and Rosa Washington, the Clean Cities coordinator for Riverside both contributed to my hydrogen experiments. It cost $192.17 to drive 2199 miles in 7 days, @ 18.133 MPG equivalent, which is just over $.08 per mile.
Premium gasoline averaging $2.22 per gallon would
have cost $269.22 to cover the same distance. This represent almost a 40%
saving compared to using conventional fuels in a 4x4 truck. with advanced
infrastructure, savings would be more dramatic.
I would love to put a
Wavecrest Adaptive Motor on
this stretched out, low-ridin’ mobile. Maybe a project bike could be in
the works between Electric
Cyclery and Intergalactic Hydrogen! Meeting all these wonderful people
at the pool party was great. I look forward to working with them on
environmental projects right now and into the future.

The Music Tree Tent will provide instruments and instruction to kids who want to jam. Perry will stop by daily and jam with kids. We may even be able to record everyone playing and put bits on the web nightly for them to listen to or let their friends hear. We will accomplish this while providing concert attendees the ability to touch, feel, taste and smell H2 vehicles.
We expect my H2TOY's exhaust emissions to be cleaner than the ambient air at some metropolitan venues we visit. Although I would not drink it, the water created from this combustion process will be cleaner than what some people get to drink.
I have committed to the first 10 shows and am looking for contributors to help us deliver this clean, safe, renewable, affordable energy message to approximately 20,000 people per day. With your support we will look forward to attending all 32 shows. The Lollapalooza tour kicks off July 14th in Auburn, Washington and continues through the US and Canada to finish in Dallas Texas on August 25th. Check here for tour dates.
Our innovative American Fuel Vehicle (AFV’s)
program, which includes ethanol, H2, CNG,
biodiesel, propane, solar electric and other cleaner fuels, provides your
company/organization the opportunity for exposure to a vast audience that
has huge influence on the marketplace and our economy. Levels of
commitment are available in H2ydrogen,
Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze packages.
With your consideration, the modifications to build
a H2ydrogen powered motorhome could be part
of our tentatively named, American H2ydrogen
Vehicles show. This vehicle is intended to be modified to run on 100%
H2ydrogen. For this initial tour with
Lollapalooza we would employ my father, Fred Robinson's proven technology
of H2ydrogen Fumigation. H2yboosting
the baseline fuel increases efficiency and cleans up the emissions.
Locally sourced fuels have the ability to be more reliable without the fluctuations associated with conventional sources. The RV crowd understands self reliance and the Lollapalooza audience represents the majority of $ spent in our country.
With our combined efforts, Intergalactic Hydrogen
and AWAKE Community can hit the road on a great education ticket this
election year. Remember, when we combust H2ydrogen
with oxygen from the air stream entering the engine we make purified water
and reduce the particulate pollution and carbon monoxide found in the
ambient air. Clean Air is good
for all living things.
