Ismael Aviso, a 54 years old Filipino e-car inventor who became eminent because of his self-charging electric car. According to him skyrocketing petroleum prices should spur Filipinos to help each other. He had based his statement because of the continuous fuel hikes. Aviso owns a water-refilling business in Navotas City. He was not able to continue his invention before because of lack of fund. The government was too slow to embrace his technology. Thru the internet, he shared his videos everyday until some foreigners discovered his skeletal prototype car.

Tayong mga Pilipino ay sanay tumulong sa kapwa kapag may tumama sa atin na kalamidad. (We Filipinos are used to helping each other out whenever calamity strikes), Aviso told the Manila Bulletin.

Preliminary testing on Aviso's prototype was conducted by the Department of Science and Technology (DoST) and the Department of Energy (DoE) last February 24. The two government agencies ascertained that it was performing "self-charging." While waiting for further tests to be conducted, Aviso's foreign friends and believers voluntarily set up for him a Paypal account for an easier transfer of donation money from anywhere in the world into his bank account in the Philippines, by this means he will be able to pursue his invention.
