Water Fueled Car

1 liter of water keeps the car running for about an hour with a speed of 80 kilometers or 50 miles an hour.

*conspiracy everywhere mode on* That is so cool but the oil companies will never allow that to spread *conspiracy everywhere mode off*

80 km/h is huge...I would buy that car even with only 2 seats. Can't wait to see the price of one of those. Bye bye petrol companies!

At a maximum speed of 80km/hour it will work great in dense cities. Hope they get to partner up with the big companies. Mother earth <3

THATS AMAZING! GO JAPAN! :D

But my friend Bear is not so impressed.

In June 2008, Japanese company Genepax unveiled a car which it claims runs on only water and air, and many news outlets dubbed the vehicle a "water-fuel car".

In early 2009, Genepax announced they were closing their website, citing large development costs.

For those of you with no practical knowledge of chemistry or physics, keep dreaming.
This is pure garbage, just another investment scam, nothing more.

Bah... old news that violates certain thermodynamic laws. They take the water, hydrolize it into oxygen and hydrogen and then either burn the hydrogen (oxidizing it back into water for a net loss in energy due to heat generation), or in this case feed the hydrogen into a fuel cell to generate electricity. You need electricity to hydrolize the water and you need a consumable fuel source in your fuel cell to generate electricity. Either way, this car is not "fueled by water". It is most likely fueled by some solid within the fuel cell that must be replaced.

You simply cannot break water apart and then put it back together again without losing energy in the process.

The car requires a metal hydride to react with the water to form Hydrogen and therefore water is not the only "fuel". The energy cost of the hydride will be more than the energy produced by the Hydrogen, First law of thermodyanmics.

This is simply a fuel cell, the mane problem is industrialization. That uses a lot of platinium. Now, we don't have enough ressources of platinium on earth to industrialize this system at large scale.

1st high quality water is more expensive than Oil, believe it or not.

2nd using drinking water which contains salts would make you require and engine overhaul in like two days

3rd it will be more expensive in most of scenarios

4th the only thing for the next decade that can beat Oil is nuclear power :D

or world war three were no one is going to need oil because we are all doomed O:)

There's just no possible way this is true. Anyone who believes otherwise should save their money and go for a pyramid scheme instead.

Water in that video doesn't seem to be pure with its oceanic color. There must be some supplements added I suppose.
Using tap water to generate torque is not really realistic. As #16 stated the only power which can take oil's place is nuclear power for now.

Total bull shit , i seen this same crap 15years ago from some austrailian guy claiming he was turning water in to fuel with a simple device at home , i guess he invented the fusion reactor too but kept that to himself

#1 I think you can leave "conspiracy everywhere mode" ON. I am fairly certain that the oil companies will just buy the patent for an obscene amount of money and then just throw it away.

FYI a danish inventor made something very close to this in 98 you get 1 guess who bought the idea same day it was in the news here.
I hope it doesnt happen again :s

If cars can run on water here, they are going to tax it. the moment after there were cars riding on vegetable oil (edible) straight out of the store in to the feultank, the price of vegetable oil went up badly.

OK, There's something not right here:
The voice over states the car runs "solely on Hydrogen Dioxide"
Well, that's Hydrogen Peroxide, which in industrial strength can sometimes be pale blue in colour. Oops, hang on, they were pouring a pale blue liquid in, weren't they??? Or maybe they have a load of sodium perborate in that white metal box, which turns to Hydrogen Peroxide when you add water...
And anyway, last I heard Hydrogen Peroxide fuel cells were a bit dodgy, as they chemically "burn" up aluminium as fuel to release electrons. We only recently stopped cars chucking out lead in the exhaust, I'd rather not have it replaced with aluminium!

Yea I caught that also #30. Cars will never run on water alone, its just not chemically possible with todays technology, and frankly it may never be possible.

Some of you should take a little time to research a subject before revealing your ignorance on it.

Hydrogen dioxide is more commonly known as hydrogen peroxide, a disinfectant, bleaching agent and pesticide. It is an environmentally friendly chemical compound found in most homes and first-aid kits.

Hydrogen dioxide appears as a clear or light-blue liquid that is actually a weak acid. It is slightly thicker than water because it has an added oxygen atom. This happens when ultraviolet light hits oxygen in the upper atmosphere in the presence of water, or H20. When this happens, ozone, written scientifically as O3, loses one oxygen atom, which combines with water to make H2O2, the chemical notation for hydrogen dioxide. Because it is produced in the upper atmosphere, it is found in rain and snow in very small amounts. Hydrogen dioxide is highly soluble in water and impossible to detect by visual inspection.

There are many types of hydrogen peroxide, from the nearly harmless household variety to deadly industrial strengths. Three-percent hydrogen peroxide is found in homes, where it is used as a cleaner, bleach and teeth-whitener, as well as to clean out cuts, scrapes and infections. A 6 percent solution is used to bleach hair. Thirty-percent hydrogen peroxide is used in medical research, but is very dangerous, capable of causing burns to the skin, or to the lungs if the vapors are inhaled. Thirty-five percent solutions are found in the food industry, though they are diluted before being used for cleaning. The military and scientists use a 90 percent solution as part of the formula for rocket fuel.

ROCKET FUEL! Do you see where this might be leading???

#33 You should eat your own dog food.

Hydrogen Peroxide is not Hydrogen Dioxide.

Hydrogen Peroxide has 2 hydrogen and 2 oxygen atoms, hence the 'per'.

Hydrogen Diocide has 1 Hydrogen and 2 oxygen atoms, hence the 'di'.

Okay, I think I see now that this is different than this: http://www.hydrogencarsnow.com/ that has been being sold and driven in SoCal for a few years now...... But these are clearly different, as the hydrogen cell cars you have to go to a special filling station and cannot just pour in a bottle of water.

What I want from snotr's well-informed chemists/viewers is: What exactly IS the difference between these two cars? I'm no scientist, nor inventor, so I really have no idea what makes a hydrogen cell vehicle possible but this water powered one not. Anyone?
