You do know that there are already a few companies like Tesla, Daimler Trucks, Volvo, Riven, Nikola Motors, Workhorse (making UPS vans) and a few Chinese companies all planning or already have prototypes of heavy haulage electric vehicles. Some are rather close to selling commercially (UPS actually having 900 vehicles on order).Battery powered electric cars will never replace trucks as the power density of batteries will never match that of diesel.
A while back, someone was converting waste cooking oils for use in diesel powered vehicles....What ever happened to that idea I can't remember, but did make headlines for a number of reasons...None that I can remember being bad for the environmentI started watching a YouTube series a little while ago about a guy up north showing how to make a burner with 100% efficiency and it turns waste plastic (I assume milk bottles and meat trays) into automotive grade DIESEL.
I really should finish watching that series.
