Answer: To continue the phase of project we are now at is $700,000. The complete project estimated cost is 20 million dollars. The Flex Fuel Chip and the Variable Displacement will help offset the funds needed.
Please let me first congratulate you on a remarkable design and use of technology. What you have is exactly what Americans and people around the world need. I say "people" because indeed every person that drives an automobile needs your product, an incredibly efficient motor/engine in their vehicle. However, I imagine there are many corporations that do not want your technology available to every person. How do you get your technology and product available to the general public without getting corporations involved? How much capital do you need to continue on with production? Could you possibly take out advertisements in newspapers, online and in periodicals asking for public investing into your company, leaving corporations out? I am very confident the general public would readily invest in your company if they just were informed of your technology. Unfortunately, this country is controlled too much by big corporations. I believe you may want to try to reach those that made this country great, the people. Most of us (by us I mean Americans with a sense of pride and a sense that we need to take control of things that matter to us and not let the greedy corporations and politicians control our livelihoods) understand the overwhelming need for your product, we want it. Please do not put your technology "on a shelf". Let the people have the opportunity to help. We do not need corporations or the government to do this. We can do it together! If you decide to try to get personal investors, please let me know. I will certainly invest my money and volunteer my time to promote your technology.
Kind regards, Todd

Letter wrote in by Speedzzter: I have no idea whether Team HP2g will be able to make good on their claims or not. However, it does absolutely no good to ridicule the team before the competition has even started.
If one believes the future of private transportation is only soulless, cramped telephone-booths-on-wheels, powered by permanently-sealed "black box" propulsion units, then perhaps "a drag race" is irrelevant.
But, the fundamental idea of the X Prize isn't just to build the most compromised and highest m.p.g. vehicle possible. It's about building cars with "real world" attributes AND advanced operational efficiency.
In the real world, there are people who want increased "part throttle" fuel efficiency, yet still need (or want) serious power during 3%-5% of the driving cycle. There are people who will continue to need light vehicles that retain the occasional capacity to haul heavy loads of goods and equipment at highway speeds. There are people who will never surrender motoring enjoyment and performance capability at the "altar" of m.p.g. There are still people who desire dual purpose cars that can be driven daily and raced on the weekends.
Drag racing is a well-documented way to demonstrate the peak output and durability of an engine. It can demonstrate an important part of an engine's capability to the technologically-aware segment of the motoring public. It can also generate interest in a new concept or idea.
A 100 year tradition of automobile racing and "hot rodding" isn't just going to evaporate because a minority of power-hungry environmentalist-socialists are spreading their new global religion of "climate change." Thus, whatever happens, some of us will still be racing whatever there is left to race.
The X-Prize would be a total failure if it degenerates into a ephemeral competition between flimsy, freakish and impractical experimental "cars" that do nothing well but sip fuel. At least Team HP2g has entered a vehicle with "real world" attributes of interest to the millions who don't plan on giving up the essence of high performance motoring merely to appease the greeniacs.
I hope they can meet and even exceed their claims . . . and do it with a V8! But it does no good to "trash talk" against them until they've had their day in the actual competition. _________________ "Real progress requires continuing to 'push the envelope.' It requires continuing to press for greater subjective and objective performance."
Letter wrote in by Jesse Livefast : " First off, I would like to reiterate what I said in the subject. Thank you! And secondly, and I don't mean to accuse you of anything, but I sure as hell hope this is real; tangible. I know you have a lot riding on this, and I hope more than anything that you win and garner the respect and wealth that will come with the win. I hope you're not pulling our leg, because as a little grass roots effort, you've inspired a lot of people, including myself. You're all over the Mustang forums, Subaru forums, and I just introduced your team to a Nissan/Infiniti forum that has been buzzing ever since I posted your video and articles. From a performance driven mind, I'm excited to see what your team has rolling over there, and as a middle class American, I'm excited to possibly buy whatever it is you're selling. So many people have speculated that you're going to sell out to the big wigs, deal with the automobile manufacturers, or go another route that so many have followed for money, but I'm almost willing to put money on you guys! It's about time that we have a true great American "David" to slay the corrupt OPEC "Goliath!" Whether you win this thing or not, you have inspired thousands, if not millions at this point! Keep up the good fight! Break our shackles, will ya?!"
A. No... Thank you . We are testing and proving our products in real world driving. *********
I’ll take one of those engines
Published by: Bryan Times,
110 MPG, 400 horsepower engine!I’ll take one of those!I have to roll my eyes at your article phase “pulling off something big car companies are still dreaming about”.You should have said, “pulling off something big car companies have been keeping a secret from the market due to their partnership with oil companies, corporate lawyers and special interest.”
This is the copy of my e-mail to Governor Strickland.“Mr. Strickland, instead of bailing out the big three, why don’t you tell them to suck it and make changes they need by chopping the waste from top.After seeing the article in the Bryan Times about the Wauseon man (Doug Pelmear) who made a 110-MPG, 400 HP engine, he is one who needs the money – not Ford, GM, or Chrysler!You better make sure he gets all the banking the state of Ohio has to offer, and then some.Zero interest loans, free land, free money, no taxes, just like you do for Wal-Mart.Don’t let the big three, big oil, and the EPA stop this man. I will be keeping my eye on this and what your office does for this Ohio citizen, Doug Pelmear: Put your money where your mouth is. If we want to break our dependency from foreign oil, this is how.Make Ohio be first!”
I urge everyone to write, e-mail, phone their representative in favor of this man’s idea.I also urge the Bryan Times to keep this article alive.Keep us up to date with what’s going on, who is helping, who is hindering, how we can help.

Thank you for contacting me regarding the proposed bailout of the auto industry.
In my judgment, the Big Three automakers have arrived at this point through their own poor management. The fact that so many American manufacturing jobs are at risk is the only reason these companies deserve any taxpayer assistance. In order to avoid digging ourselves into a deeper economic hole, we must take action. But we cannot simply have another bailout. Any assistance from the government must come in the form of a loan with significant strings attached to force these companies to restructure the way they do business.
First, we must insist that the Big Three increase their average fuel economy to 50 miles per gallon by 2020. Automakers must also increase production of flex-fuel, electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Foreign car companies have been building fuel-efficient cars for years, and now in this era of volatile gas prices, the American manufactures find themselves at a disadvantage.
We also must ensure that no tax payer money goes to reward the people who got us in this situation in the first place. Shareholders in these companies should not receive dividends until the companies return to financial health. We must place limits on executive compensation and eliminate golden parachutes. Finally, we must insist that these companies replace their senior management. We need new leadership and fresh ideas to get us out of this mess.
I appreciate the time you’ve taken to contact me about this important issue. I am committed to keeping America on the leading edge of manufacturing and technological innovation. Please do not hesitate to share your views with me in the future.

Thank you for writing to share your thoughts on your company Horse Power Sales Net, Inc / HP2g. I appreciate your suggestions on promoting alternative fuel transportation in California.
Our state, nation and world are facing unprecedented challenges not only from global climate change, but from increasing energy prices and dependence on unstable governments to supply our fuel. Fossil fuels damage our environment and are becoming increasingly unsustainable. We must begin to look toward methods of alternative fuel transportation. While we have a huge undertaking in front of us, I know that through the unparalleled innovation of Californians, we will readily meet and challenge before us.
Just look at what we’ve accomplished so far. In January 2007, I announced the world’s first Low Carbon Fuel Standard for transportation fuels. This First-of-its kind standard will reduce the carbon intensity of California’s transportation fuels by at least 10 percent by 2020 and more thereafter- the equivalent of removing 3 million cars from the road- while spurring the advancement of alternative fuels. Our zero Emission Vehicle Program has also instrumental in promoting the use of clean gasoline technologies- such as hybrid vehicles- and encouraging the development of pure zero-emission technologies.
Today, Californians are leading the way in promoting alternative fuel technology and other green business and renewable energy fields. That’s why I know that if we remain committed we will succeed. We will show the world that protecting the environment and growing the economy go hand-in-hand.
Again thank you for your interest in alternative fuels. As we continue out efforts on this important issue, I will keep your thoughts in mind.
United State Senate
Dear Mr. Pelmear,
Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm for electric cars and your hp2g design. I apologize for the delay in my response.
For far too long our country has had an increasingly dangerous and harmful addiction to fossil fuels. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reliance on foreign oil, continued use and development of electric cars is something that must be pursued. The hp2g vehicle mentioned in your letter
A sound and sustainable energy policy must be a national priority as we seek to lessen the impact of climate change and secure our energy independence. Ohio has the potential to be a leader in the alternative energy sector, and I am confident that ingenuity, a hallmark of our state, will ensure that this happens.
I appreciated hearing about your project and ideas.
