Ben walks you through the steps of converting a Geo Metro (purchase price $500, gas-requiring parts sold for $550) to run on a forklift motor and 6 12V batteries. According to his calculations, the car gets the equivalent of about 130 mpg. Not bad for an entirely self-taught mechanic!

Sounds easy, right? So when are you planning to convert your car or truck?
