Are you tired of seeing gas costs continue to rise to where they are almost $4 a gallon? By the day extra billions in income are being made by the oilmen, while everyday folk find it increasingly challenging to put gas in the tank and generally sweat at stretching their budgets to previously unheard of limits. Does a motor vehicle necessarily have to run on gasoline, or can it be adapted to another, better technique?
Through the years quite a few products have been tested, but since they infringe on oil sales, the tests have been halted. A simple glance at the gas gauge is enough to make anybody wish for a cheaper way to run their car. A likely fantasy is cars that run on water – and there have been ads on the internet lately for exactly that. A poor joke – or perhaps reality? Water includes hydrogen, and some visionary car manufacturers are doing R&D on cars powered by hydrogen.
The energy of water is awesome, and so think about having your car run with hydrogen and oxygen converted by built-up water pressure. This isn’t just some far-away aspiration, but is already a reality, even though these cars haven’t been released to the public, yet. It took more than twenty years of development before the electric car was ready for widespread sales to the public. If today you want the Smart Car of America, which runs on electric energy solely, there is a waiting list of over a year. It’s dead certain that fuel cars certainly are a hangover from the past – people really want something else.
Quite some time in the past, a conveniently cheap form of energy for cars was petrol, and for houses so was natural gas. Pollution from gas has gotten out of control, while customers of both forms have had to pay escalating prices. The guys who get blamed a whole lot, because they drew our attention to the problem, are the environmentalists, but in fact we should thank them because our air is a lot better than it would have been otherwise. They ensured that the world’s supply of air and water stayed relatively clean, but had to suffer the pain of name-calling and ridicule in the process. We have these people to be grateful for thinking of adding ethanol to gas to make it run cleaner. But more needs to be carried out, with sky-high oil prices that continue to climb, and most of our gas coming from overseas.
Instead of being dependent on overseas oil, wouldn’t it be wonderful to cut them out completely, and that could possibly happen with a car engine that would run on hydrogen and oxygen burning. How wonderful it sounds to speak about a car that runs on ordinary tap water. Automobiles that can run on hydrogen are already being experimented on by both Ford and Chevy. Expect an enormous waiting list whenever their hydrogen-powered vehicles are finally released, many years from now.
