Prices at fuels turn over

From 1988 to 2018 in only 30 years is a complete turn over of the prices at fuels for cars. Numbers based on German prices and solar radiation.



  Fuel costs of a medium sized car


For the compare, we take 5 litre Diesel / 100 km for a vehicle with only fossile propulsion system. Für Plug-in Hybridautos of this size are 15 kWh / 100 km assumed.

  Only 20 years ago


Photovoltaic was something very exotix and very expensive. With a credit financed photovoltaic, about 1.-EUR per kWh electric power in Germany. 15.-EUR for 100 km.

Diesel price war only 60 Cent. So the Diesel engine car had only 3.-EUR fuel costs for 100km.

  Turning point 2008


January 2008 war in Austria Diesel at 1.20 EUR. 5 litre are 6.-EUR. At a credit financed photovoltaic are 40 Cent/kWh usual. Also 6.-EUR

So in the 20 years from 1988 to 2008, a 1:5 price difference was brought to a tie.

  Price prognosis 2018


The Diesel price has only doubled in the last 20 years. But when PeakOil had been 2006, we have to assume a much faster price increas. With 150%, it would be 3.-EUR per litre in 2018

5 litre at 3.-EUR are 15.-EUR, as much as 15 kWh solar electric power 1988.

At photovoltaic will be the price halve because of new thin film technology and mass production. 1 kWh solar electric power for 20 Cent.

15 kWh for 20 Cent are 3.-EUR, as much as the 5 litre Diesel 1988.

Rentability from photovoltaic
Since decades, the enemies of photovoltaic told ''To expensive, it does not calculate''. Now we strike back. Mobility with crude oil is uneconomic.




  2008 the countdown for electric mobility runs


A revolution is coming as significant as the change from horse cabs to cars. How can we accelerate the countdown to electric mobility?

Diesel engine in the future
Analyses about the future of the Diesel engine in the beackground of new technology and optimizing the fuel supplay after Peak Oil.


Loses the fuel cell against the Methanol engine
There is a dfifference between sending some huamns to the moon or to develop a car for a sales woman with 1000.-EUR minimum wage. A cost anaylsis of the fuel cell.


Higher city toll for gasoline guzzlers
It is the luxury class where all fundamental new developments at cars had been the first time set in and later gradual found the way to small cars.


Energy efficiency of cars
Compare of different propulsion systems in the same car, ICE internal combustion engine vs electric power from fuel, coal to liquid, bimass, wind energy, solar energy.


Load speed
How many km range can be per hour load time or refueling put in the batteries or in the tanks? An important criteria for reference number vehicles.


Eat my dirt
Mobility with ICE internal combustion engines is something very aggressive. You have to be under all circumstances faster than the others, otherwise You will eat their dirt.




Analysis lead price
Analysts always claim to hear the gras growing, but they pretend not to hear 60 million electric scooters in China. The true reason for the high lead price.


Coal liquification
Compare of coal liquification for the production of liquid fuels vs making electric power out of coal and the usage in vehicles with electric propulsion.


Biofuel furtherance
US$ 15 billion had been sent out 2007 in the OECD for the furtherance of biofuels. Just after military expenses the most ridiculous and dangerous expenses.


Chrysler car stock
Sell recommendation! The action Let's refuel America is an indicator, that Chrysler considers the situation on the oil market as a short time lasting speculation bubble
