I am not really that technically minded, but have heard alot of people saying it really isn't feasible to power cars by water.
Could someone tell me how much water would be needed to power say... a standard 4 cylinder car? May be a silly question but just interested.

Japan is mixing methanol and water in order to produce hydrogen. They have also been promising this fuel cell would be released to the market for laptops for almost 3 years.

An any event, good luck! I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say we hope to hear from you some day.

It doesn't matter how much electricity is used to power the electrolysis , because its free in this case. And theoretically by reversing the process you could get a 1 to 1 conversion, but you would have to store the gases , and fuel cells are only about 83 % efficient .
So the system might produce 50 or 60 % of the extra electricity it collects.
