With gas prices at just about $4 to the gallon, how do you feel about having witnessed prices rise and rise again, up to these astronomical levels? The oil giants are becoming wealthier and wealthier by the day, while you must struggle more and more to fill your tank, which you in all probability have to do to put bread on the table. Would you like to find a better way to run your car, or is there some kind of unwritten rule that a car can only be operated with gasoline?
Because of the potentially devastating impact on oil profits, many promising alternatives have not got beyond the testing phase. Every time you stop at the gas pump and also see the dollar total climb, you probably curse scientists for not having found a better and cheaper way to power cars. Now, you’ve probably seen the ads on the web regarding vehicles that run on water. A bad joke – or actuality? Water contains hydrogen, and some visionary car manufacturers are doing R&D on cars powered by hydrogen.
The energy of water is awesome, and so think of having your car run with hydrogen and oxygen converted by built-up water pressure. Cars like this already exist, however the public is definitely not aware of them. It required more than twenty years after conception before the electric vehicle came into public use. Currently, there is more than a year’s waiting list for the Smart Car of America, which works solely on electric energy. There is surely a need to get rid of fuel cars for those that run on something altogether different.
Once upon a time fuel was a cheap form of energy for the car, and natural gas for the household. Both types have continually gotten higher, and gas has triggered lots of pollution. The guys who get blamed a whole lot, because they drew our focus 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. Despite every one 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 also water. Because of them, gas runs cleaner soon after ethanol is actually added to it. But a lot more needs to be accomplished, with sky-high oil prices that continue to rise, and most of our gas coming from overseas.
Imagine cutting out oil from abroad altogether, which would be possible if a car that ran on hydrogen and oxygen combustion was successfully developed. It must sound like something from beyond the realms of practicality, but how good would it be if a car ran on simple tapwater? Both Ford and Chevrolet are at present researching a car that runs on hydrogen. As soon as they finally get introduced years from now, the waiting list for their new hydrogen driven vehicle will likely be miles long .
