US posties test water with hydrogen-powered car for deliveries

It's just one out of 220,000 US Postal Service vehicles, but the hydrogen-powered fuel-cell car now being used in Irvine, California, represents the agency's quest to reduce its petroleum appetite.

The USPS station in Irvine is the first in the United States to test drive a Chevrolet Equinox as part of General Motors' Project Driveway, which puts more than 100 fuel-cell vehicles in the hands of average drivers as part of a large-scale market test.

Re: Us Post Office Moves Ahead - With Gm Hydrogen Equinox Test

I just hope the guy driving it doesn't go postal. That would be some bad press.
When was the last time a postman went postal?

I am not overwhelmed by the USPS's greenie efforts.

The old junkers they still run smell like they're running 1970s engines. They usually drip oil, and you can smell the raw gas/burning oil mix lingering in the air 20 minutes after they've delivered the credit card solicitations for the day.

The first, best thing they could do is some new engine transplants on those old beaters they keep repainting.
