Think of a power plant that is so small it can fit in the truck of your car or even under the hood. With a hydrogen generator for cars, you can create your own renewable source of fuel. Hydrogen fuel for cars has a wide range of benefits. It is cheaper and has better mileage than gasoline, as well as very little to no emissions.
A big drawback in converting your car to run on hydrogen gas is the absence of hydrogen fueling stations in most areas. If you live close to a hydrogen fuel production place, it won’t be a problem to refuel but if not you would have to make your own fuel using a hydrogen generator for cars.
One common method of producing hydrogen fuel is electrolysis. This method creates hydrogen by introducing a electric current and an electrolyte to water, which creates a state though which hydrogen gas separates from the water. The hydrogen gas can be used as fuel for a vehicle with a few modifications. Do-it-yourselfers can easily build their own simple hydrogen generator for cars using a system that goes by the name of water for gas.
There are two main ways to utilize a hydrogen generator for cars. One way creates a hybrid type system where hydrogen is generated using a small electrolysis system that is powered by your vehicles electrical system. A system like this can be constructed from plans, using either common materials readily available in most auto parts and hardware stores or more complex specialty items that must be custom ordered in some cases. The other way requires the installation of an on-board generator to replace gasoline consumption completely.
The hybrid approach reduces both the gasoline consumed by your vehicle and the amount of emissions your vehicle puts out. This saves both money and the environment. This method produces a small amount of hydrogen gas that is fed into your vehicle induction system via the inlet manifold which is fed into the gasoline air/fuel mixture into your vehicle.
You can replace your vehicle’s gasoline requirements wholly with hydrogen fuel by putting in place a hydrogen generator for cars, which produces enough fuel to power the vehicle. You’ll need a miniature electrolysis system for such generation and facilities to store both the generated hydrogen as well as the electrolysis system. A few modifications are necessary to implement to make this complex and expensive method for the production of hydrogen fuel. But when it is complete you get a zero emission vehicle and you pay about two-thirds less than what gasoline-powered version would cost to drive.
When compared side by side the most sensible and cost effective approach at this time would be the hybrid approach. Considering the lack of hydrogen fueling stations and the possibility of complex repairs to hydrogen generator for cars not easily accomplished at a local roadside repair shop for at least a few more years the hybrid approach will probably be your safest bet. Indeed, it would be considered risky to convert your car to hydrogen as you would no doubt void any warranty. Hybrid systems are an obvious compromise but are easier to install and less risk to a warranty.
