Running Your Car On Water - Any Real Disadvantages?

Jul 19, 2008
With the recent increasing gas prices, more and more people have been looking into alternative ways in which to lower their fuel costs. They have also been looking for more ways to help the environment as studies have shown increasing amounts of greenhouse gases being released through the use of fossil fuels.

One of the alternatives to gas is hydrogen, which has brought the run car on water movement to a popular standing. There are two main ways to get hydrogen power into your car. The first is conversion and the second is to purchase a new vehicle that uses hydrogen. While there are no real disadvantages to using a conversion which is either homemade or a kit purchase, there is a disadvantage to purchasing a hydrogen powered vehicle.

Hydrogen is a highly flammable material that is heavier than gas. This could lead to a serious risk which is not as high in gasoline-based vehicles. The disadvantage of conversion is that these are hybrid vehicles. Even though you are creating them from your own vehicle, they are not hydrogen-based which mean that you are using gas as well as hydrogen.

If you are looking for the totally emission-free vehicle, you will need to look into purchasing a new vehicle that is designed to run specifically on HHO gas. If not, then you will have the disadvantage of still having to head to the pump. The good news is that you will be saving money because you will be able to extend the life of your tank of gas by 50-100%!

This means a longer amount of time between trips to the gas station and a greater distance on a single tank of gas! That is because people drive farther from their homes more than ever in order to find decent work, and with rising prices, being able to get more for your dollar is something to consider seriously.

If you are asking if there are disadvantages to run car on water, more likely than not your answer is going to be no! What few disadvantages there may be when it comes to using water as a fuel source, the advantages still far outweigh them. Water is a renewable source and in many cases, water that you may not consider drinkable can be easily used for fuel.

Chances are you may never run into a problem with running out of gas again. You can go farther and longer on the same tank, saving yourself the cost of anywhere from half a tank to a full tank of gas with every single purchase.

Hydrogen cars are more expensive just as any new type of vehicle is. Anything that is not mainstream as a result of conversions is more popular because it can be done easily in the space of a weekend from things that you can find at your local hardware store. There really are no serious disadvantages to using water as an alternative fuel source for your vehicle.
