Pros and Cons:

Pros :

Hydrogen is a more effective fuel than gasoline

Hydrogen engines average about 90 mpg

Hydrogen is a zero emissions fuel


Cons:

It is dependent on fossil fuels for production and transportation

Not many car companies make cars that are able to use hydrogen fuels

How Hydrogen Fuel is Made

  • Made from natural gas steam reformation
  • Natural gas is pressured down and broken into hydrogen and carbon oxides
  • Can also be produced by electrolysis which is running an energy current through water to separate the hydrogen and oxygen
  • It is then stored and cooled for a fuel source
