Converting a Car to Battery Power

By: Steve English Teacher (Rookie) Mar 22, 07

Are you seriously concerned about the environment?  The energy needed to make a new car is equal to about 1000 gallons of gasoline—which must be burned before you start driving.  Have you considered the energy savings of converting a gasoline car to electric?  A car that would otherwise go to the junk yard might be kept on the road by taking out the blown engine and putting in an electric motor.  Instead of paying $20,000 plus for a hybrid car (which still needs gasoline), why not consider a dedicated electric car?  Ampmobiles, Inc., in Lake Wyatt, South Carolina has been training teams of mechanics and your mechanic could be next.  www.ampmobiles.com COST per converted car runs about $12,000.
