the overhaul from the oil-based to a new infractructure would be just stupendous - how many engines and cars would have to be replaced, how many gas stations discarded? Who will the suffer costs of the overhaul?

That is why I think the only realistic way forward is synthetic hydrocarbons from renewable electricity. Synthetic hydrocarbons are carbon-neutral, too.

Will we have enough renewable electivity for all synthetic hydrocarbons we "need"? The tempo of renewability is limited.

Ah, but at least we can piggyback on the existing transport infrastructure.
