Nad, the problem isn't power.|
The issue is fuel RANGE. About 100 miles on a tankful, mostly because of the energy density and the tank requirements.
Its relatively cheap to fuel BUT if we started doing this en-masse you'd see an instant response in fertilizer (NG is used to make ammonia, which is a key component in nitrogen that goes into fertilizer) which again goes back to food.
