Do you think it would be possible? I think it would be very cool to have a heavily modded car that is also ecofriendly. What are your thoughts?

Hey, I like the idea of Flexfuel. Going back to the 70's and the time of the gas crisis. My Grandfather installed a huge propane tank in the back of his service bed of his work truck. He then bought a kit to rebuild the carb. to accept both gas and Propane. He used that truck on both of those fuels until he passed in the late 90's. Flex fuel type things have been around a long time. Its getting people to use them. I would use propane in a heartbeat. Have you seen the price of propane lately?? Around my house I can get it for about 1.25 a gallon.I have trouble justifying the expenses and validation of taking a vehicle that already gets fantastic mileage (upwards of 30) and make it get 40-45. You can purchase a lot of gasoline for the price of the conversion, not to mention the purchase and disposal of batteries every 10 or so years.
Hybrids are a great concept, but in the long run I would rather see more of a flex fuel type of setup on the box. Renewable energy has the best promises out there right now.
Possible? Sure. I've seen a 7.0L vette engine in a miata, so I think a prius engine can be put into an xB. The end result may be more eco-friendly but certainly not cost-effective. You'd very likely spend as much or more than both cars put together. You'd need a crew of talented people who have exprience doing custom fabrication because alot of the neccessary prius parts won't exactly bolt up to an xB body.Do you think it would be possible?
