Power Your Vehicle With Water
For months, we all have had troubles as per how we would be able to fill up our car's gas and fuel tanks when the gas prices were soaring like they have never soared before. For months, we have tried to find ways and even alternative answers to this dilemma that all car owners were facing. If only water could be used as fuel for our vehicles, we would have done so even before. But is it possible to use water as fuel?
Of course, many people would answer no. And many scientists have tried looking for ways to actually make and create a vehicle that could run on water as fuel. And it looks like their efforts have not been put to waste.
You see, the HyPower Fuel Inc. has already announced to the world that they have been able to successfully make a vehicle run and function with only water as its main source of fuel. The company also did share that the vehicle is just an ordinary Volkswagen GTI with also ordinary Volkswagen car parts making up the vehicle. But the only thing not so ordinary about this Volkswagen GTI is the fact that underneath its hood, HyPower has installed an H2 Reactor (or H2R) hydrogen system.
The H2R hydrogen system is actually a system that has the capacity to produce the right amount of hydrogen that the vehicle needs. And all it needs is water so as to create the much needed hydrogen. This system makes use of electrolysis which actually converts water so much so that it becomes hydrogen gas or oxygen gas. And when this has been done, the gas can then be used to give the vehicle power to do what it has been meant to do.
Doug Bender is the president of HyPower and he does share, “This is an extremely significant advance in that a vehicle with a standard internal combustion engine can be powered with hydrogen produced onboard as needed. Other hydrogen vehicles require special storage tanks to supply the highly compressed gas to the engine. This is not yet a practical application as there are simply very few available refueling stations for these vehicles.”
