Yes, there will be two tanks. One for new fuel and one for spent fuel, which will be recharged and pumped again.

I think we are still a long way from saying bye bye to OPEC. Besides what happens to the over a million people that depend on the various oil industries? Another financial meltdown?

And not to mention the hazards of spills... scary.

Agreed. I'd say that today, the expected service life of a car should be around 250,000 miles.

anyway sound interesting and new to me. most of the technological breakthrough are old only the implementation at the affordable rate is difficult.

Correct. There are two electrolytes, therefore 4 tanks.

You're still left with the problem of where the power comes from. While EV is a fringe technology it is easy to have a few running about. But if 20% of cars were replaced with EVs you'd need to find a lot more electricity than is available now. Most countries don't have surplus electrical generation and indeed many already have a shortage.

There are also huge methane hydrate deposits in deep ocean, which could run Bloom fuel cells if mined and brought to the surface.

I hate to be so pessimistic when it comes to new energy sources, but I do not see the viability /benefit of a recharging system that requires interchange of an energy storage vessel. Would anyone feel safe with energy tanks that may present a safety hazard? The mechanism that would allow a quick interchange, would be very likely the failure mechanism during collision.

Perhaps, they could add the home charger option to the batteries and recharge the fluid at home / office? I wonder what the cost is and the lifetime (cycles of charge/discharge of the fuel)?

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
