Running a car on water. PDF Print E-mail

I posted this in response in a Care2 forum to the common question from the non-scientist as to whether you can really run a car on water. Since I've been asked this question I thought I'd post it here as well. Can a car run on water? Its a good question, and it isn't surprising that non-scientists find it confusing. Using cheap electricity to turn water into hydrogen and oxygen and recombining them into electricity at the place you want it (e.g. in a running car) is the basis of the so-called 'Hydrogen Economy'. But .... its also the basis of a lot of scams by people either deluding you, or deluding themselves. Most (though not all) of the "run your car on water" projects are essentially variations of this.
