With gas prices at almost $4 to the gallon, how do you feel about having watched prices rise and rise again, up to these astronomical levels? The oil giants are becoming wealthier and wealthier by the day, while you have to struggle more and more to fill up your tank, which you most likely have to do to put bread on the table. Does a motor vehicle necessarily have to run on gasoline, or can it be adapted to another, superior way?
Through the years many products have been tested, but given that they infringe on oil revenue, the tests have been halted. Any time you take a look at your gas gauge, you are probably wishing there was a better way to run your car. Have you seen the ads on the net about a car that can run on water? Is that a joke, or is there really the chance of having a car that works on water? This is really a possibility being pursued by car manufacturers, with future vehicles being powered by hydrogen which originates from water.
As we know from nature, water is a literal powerhouse, so imagining a car run on the conversion of hydrogen and oxygen through water pressure is not that difficult. Since the public is not aware of cars like this, it seems a fantasy – but don’t be fooled, they exist right now. It needed more time than twenty years after conception before the electric car came into public use. Presently, you would have to wait in a queue over a year-long to get a Smart Car of America, which is powered totally by electricity. There is surely a need to get rid of fuel cars for those that run on something else.
Once upon a time fuel was a cheap kind of energy for the car, and natural gas for the household. Both types have continually gotten higher, and gas has triggered lots of pollution. Environmentalists get picked on a whole lot, however if it wasn’t for their reports on emissions, our air would be a lot worse than it is. Despite all of the insults and taunts cast at them, these guys stuck to their guns and made sure that we continued to have clean air and water. The addition of ethanol to gas causes it to perform cleaner, and who do we have to thank due to this discovery but these folk. We have to do much more, though, because oil prices, substantial as they are already, keep going up, and the significant portion of our oil needs are met by foreign suppliers.
Instead of being dependent on overseas oil, wouldn’t it be wonderful to cut them out altogether, and that could possibly happen with a car engine that would run on hydrogen and oxygen burning. It must seem like something from beyond the realms of practicality, but how good would it be if a car ran on very simple tapwater? Both Ford plus Chevrolet are at present exploring a car that runs on hydrogen. Expect a huge waiting list when their hydrogen-powered vehicles are finally introduced, many years from now.
