So to keep the e-85 thread from being completely hijaacked...
I fascinated with Breaking water into a very potent fuel..
The doubters say the laws of thermodynamics state you use more energy to produce the hydrogen that you get out of it. You might as well use the electricity directly instead of use it to make hydrogen.
My arguement to that would yea but.... How much energy did it take to produce a gallon of gasoline? A whole lot more than you get from it. The oil has to b found, drilled, pumped transported to a refinery, refined and distributed.
It's my HO that gasoline is produced on such a massive scale that it is somewhat affordable but in no way energy effecient to produce. And I would bet it is way more ineffecient to produce than hydrogen
I think the on demand version of HHO or Brown's gas is the ticket. So what if it takes some electricity to make it. On demand you could'nt have used that small amount of electricity for anything else.
You are still using some fossil fuel, you are still using the existing technology of the automobile. No large scale production and distribution. Nothing has to be reinvented just a whole lot less gasoline consumed and a whole lot less pollution emitted.
OK I'm done I feel much better now.
