They have also pointed out that successful converstions have taken place all around the world. You would have to enquire if they worked in your country, if you are outside of the US, UK , EU, Canada, New Zealand, Mexico, Australia or South Africa, because they have confirmed on their site that readers of their guide have been successful in those locations.
Once you have been through the site, you may be asking yourself how soon you will be able to convert a car to electric, rather than, how much will gas cost in 2012 🙂
