With that said, I'm in no rush to take a PDC because I've read the books and I feel I have a good grasp on the knowledge already. The only reason I would say there is to take a PDC is if you are planning on going into business offering permaculture design and you need the certificate to prove your credentials. I would like to do that someday, but I'm not there yet so I can wait to take my PDC.

Great video. I personally think that this old technology is the way of the (near) future. If this guy can double his MPG with some home mods, imagine what a mechanic/engineer could do. All the stuff he has done could be automated. For example the cut out switch could be on the gear stick (as he has it) but to re-engage it could be on the accelerator pedal (this would be awesome on an auto). With the exception of hybrids, this guy has got more fuel efficiency from his truck than the motor industry has in the last 10 years.
