Questions about Fuel Cell Vehicles?

Im doing a project for school I need help finding theses questions. 1. can you convert an existing car to use this source, or do you need to buy a new car?2. Is it suitable for the Canadian climate?3. What sort of milege (fuel efficiency) should you expect to get?

Answer:

1. I don't think you can convert existing car. Fuel Cell vehicles are usually powered by fuel cell and electrical motors. Most cars today are not equipped with either. 2. I believe it is fine for Canadian climate with exception of exhaust problem such as icing or condensation. But I believe both can be easily solved by using excessive heat generated by the electric motor or controller. 3. That is hard to calculate. But typical gas engine is about 20% eefficient from gas to power. Fuel Cell is generally 40% to 50% efficient. So, I expect gas mileage to double if not more.

No you cannot convert an existing car to use a fuel cell. A fuel cell uses hydrogen to produce electricity. The electricity is then used to power an electric motor in the drivetrain of your car. No reason that you can't use in Canada other than the exhaust is water vapor so there may be an icing issue. No data on mileage yet. All cars using fuels cells are in prototype design stages.

WITH A HYDROGEN / OXYGEN GENERATOR BOLT ON YOU HAVE A HY-BRED ON DEMAND . THEY ARE RATED AT UP TO 45 % BETTER FUEL MILEAGE . I AM IN THE PARTS GATHERING MODE AT THIS TIME TO BUILDING ONE . THEY WILL WORK IN ANY CLIMATE . AND THE BEST THING IS IT RUNS ON WATER -----YEA WATER IS WHAT PRODUCES HYDROGEN / OXYGEN .
