Abstract: We propose the M|G|∞ queue system to study a situation in which conventional motor vehicles will be out of use as far as the usual energy sources will be exhausted. Two possibilities are posed: recycling or dismantling. Using the hazard rate function we conclude that when the rate of dismantling and recycling of motor vehicles is greater than the rate at which vehicles become idle, the system tends to get balanced. The motor vehicles that become unused with the conventional energy turn useful with another kind of energy or are included in other useful devices.
