How to Use Water For Fuel

Aug 26, 2008
As the Honda hydrogen car FCX Clarity is getting introduced into one part of California, you want to know how you too can benefit from this exciting water for fuel technology.

But you cannot afford a true hydrogen powered car. And even if you did, you could not fill it up anywhere yet. There are simply no hydrogen distribution network anywhere near you yet.

The good news is that you probably can afford a supplemental hydrogen gas generator. This will give your car on-board capacity to add hydrogen gas to your car engine's combustion process and increase your mileage by 25 to 50%.

In the middle of that range, with the average car getting 25 miles a gallon from a 20 gallon tank, that will get you an extra 175 miles. That's about a $21 saving every time you fill up.

At present oil prices a 50% mileage increase with a supplemental hydrogen gas generator could represent $30 a time.

The technology is not new, hundreds of drivers are already using it and it's becoming very available. You just need to decide whether you want to assemble the parts yourself or get a ready-made kit and have it installed by your mechanic.

Water for fuel seems to be one of these rare "people-power technologies." There are no big car company secrets standing between you and some significant fuel efficiency savings here.

How does it work?

It works through electrolysis. Simply put, this means that the electrical current from your car's battery separates distilled water into hydrogen and oxygen. Your car's engine then adds the hydrogen that is constantly generated to your fuel mix.

Hydrogen is a much higher energy carrier than the gas in your car. The result of this combination is the greatly improved combustion process that has you grinning behind the wheel.

Hydrogen is a very clean fuel. True water fuel. No CO2 is produced in burning it.

And it's safe as you don't carry a tank full of the stuff, as a true hydrogen powered car like the FCX Clarity does. You only produce as much as your engine needs as you drive along.

To manufacture hydrogen so that it can be stored is normally very expensive. But not this way. All you use is a little distilled water.

Are there other benefits to using water for fuel?

Apart from saving you money and cleaner emissions you mean? Well, yes.
This much improved combustion process means your car will noticeably have more power. The life of your engine is also extended through reduced carbon build-up.

You will also do your little bit towards your country's fuel self-reliance. You probably do not realize that an Olympic size pool of oil is consumed world-wide every 15 minutes - and growing? It cannot last.

Lastly, here's a tip on maximizing even these savings of turning to water for fuel technology. Combine it with bio fuels or liquid petroleum gas and your hydrogen powered car will be your very own formidable gas-saving hybrid.
