    Yeah, but didn't that DeLorean also run on trash with it?

    The plutonium powered the time circuits in the first movie. After that it was powered by the fusion generator. The car, as Doc says in movie three, runs on ordinary gasoline.

    Don't want to start anything big, but:
    at my university our professor told us once, that we are able to create engines powered by alternative sources (hydrogen for example) at pretty much the prices of gas engines. The problem is not a technology but a lobby run mostly by rich Arabs who block these kind of projects. No weird, I'd do the same to protect my buissnes. I'm not a fan of "global conspiracy theory", but there might be something to it. Think about it: they are VERY rich and powerful people.

    Of course. In a nutshell, America is dependant on oil, nobody wants to make a leap of faith to biofuel, and hydgrogen is just too conceptual right now.

    Biofuel ain't such a hot idea I think.
    Hydrogen on the other hand... well it does sound nice, but we are forgeting that we get hydroge mostly by electrolysis of water and to do that we need a lot of electric power, which still comes mostly from coal, so...

    The US government blocks alternative fuel research by saying it costs the same as gasoline
