    Whoopee. The FCX has 60% less CO2 emissions than a gasoline car. But the fuel is $10/gallon!

      Here in Palm Springs @ the Sun Line station it is $15.00/gal. It runs $0.03 more per mile than my Lincoln. No one said it was cheep, just not oil based.

        How is the actual amount of Carbon calculated? Does it take into consideration what the Hydrogen fuel is made from. For example the Hydrogen at the pumps is supposed to use Natural Gas and strip the Carbon off.

          That bothered me, too, at first. But since the actual car has Zero CO2 emissions, all of the 60% they're estimating must be from the SMR process.

            It actually depends on what is used extract the hydrogen. At this time I have read that NG CH4 is used to produce H2 for vehicles. That makes it a fossil fuel and they probably use electricty from NG or coal for the energy to separate the H2.
