Help me, if you can.

What prevents gasoline from being synthesized?

Do you mean the cost of developing synthesized gas is too much?

I was just jokin' around. No $ in wallet to buy gas to "synthesize" into pollution with my vehicles. Sorry for [email protected] your thread.

I'm confused, do you mean something to add to crude oil to prevent refinement into gasoline?

I think he means combining chemicals in a lab to produce "man-made" gas

I believe NAzi Germany ran the last 6 months of WWII on synthetic fuel, because the Allies destroyed all of their oil refineries. The "formula" for this synthetic fuel magaical disappeared at the wars end. In the 70's they made a film called the "Formula", basically PJ would love this film, the Democrats with help from the major oil corporations of the world "hid" the formula, for the good of mankind......God Bless those Democrats.....always thinking about our well being

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Sounds like the movie where the mission to the moon was filmed on a soundstage. It even featured that great actor, O.J. Simpson.

I just wanted to know what prohibits the creation of a gasoline substitute. I would imagine the development costs could be high but the return could be phenomenal, at least in the short run.

I heard that there is a conversion for diesel engine cars/trucks that allows them to run on cooking grease.

No joke...

You have to think about it though, if synthetic oil is more expensive then regular oil, wouldn't synthetic gas be more expensive?

It looks like synthetic gas research that has been done stems from coal being the basic ingrediant. So in still using a non renewable resource with the added cost theres not much reason to pursue this avenue. Or so i would guess
