Entering the mainstream the innovatory hydrogen car kits bring about horrific amount of fear, uncertainty and doubt. It is worth to know the facts independently whether you are interested or not in purchasing such a system.


Fake Fact # 1:
Hydrogen car kits burn water. This is nonsense.
The answer:
Yes this is impossible, they do not burn water. In fact they use the car battery to split a water solution into hydrogen and oxygen in resulting HHO gas (also called "brown gas"). This gas is used as a fuel in a proper way.


Faker Fact # 2:
Hydrogen car kits spend more energy in splitting the water than gives the burned resulting gas. This is basic physics.
The answer:
This is so if the hydrogen car kits actually are burning the HHO gas produced. However the hydrogen gas is used as an additive to the fuel that greatly improves the efficiency of the internal combustion engine. Basically, HHO and fuel mixture burns faster dissipating much smaller amount of energy as heat. Thus it is converted into useful energy.


Fake Fact # 3:
If such a HHO gas could be really applied burning in engines the car manufacturers would have used it a long time ago.
The answer:
This is just blatantly false. Car manufacturers are very conservative in their designs. Much more efficient Diesel engines have been with us almost for as long as cars themselves, yet they are still in minority compared to the standard ones. We do not want to point any fingers here, but when these manufacturers compare the benefits of an improved design with the cost of modifying their assembly lines, the cost aware argument usually wins.


Fake Fact # 4:
The price for the components of such hydrogen car kits should by enormous.
The answer:
This is again blatantly false. These systems were invented by people just like you and me who were passionate about making a difference. This means that they had low budgets and they had access only to off the shelve components. This is a popular movement and the cost really does reflect this.


Fake Fact # 5:
If these hydrogen car kits really are this good, why the government do not support them? There is absolutely no help from the government in this direction, which means that these kits are absolutely useless.
The answer:
You have reached a painful truth. Indeed, the government is not supporting such innovations, but not because these hydrogen car kits do not deserve, but rather because there are no huge corporate interests and lobbyists behind them. The only initiative of this type that the government is supporting is the ethanol fuel, which is not particularly efficient (especially in its corn variety), but which has the benefit of producing huge profits for the agribusiness establishment.


These are the pure, raw facts. If by any chance you have decided to try hydrogen car kits, you have my congratulations. A good place to find out more would be here.
