Against the background of the "energy problem" created by the 1973 oil crisis, the author discusses the potential for saving petroleum by modifying the nominal internal combustion engine including its conversion to use hydrogen as a fuel, and by replacing it with electric motors - battery driven, flywheel driven and directly powered. The possibility of traffic schemes, driving styles and road construction are also discussed. (TRRL)
