Water Powered Automobiles - Use Water to Run Your Vehicles

By: Andreas Lee

The technology for running cars on water instead of fossil fuel is a highly desirable one not just for cutting down of fuel bills but also for the betterment of the environment. The technology that exists as of today, allows the use of water and gasoline to be used in the running of the car, cutting down the fuel requirements considerably. But these Water Powered Automobiles is a concept which needs to be developed further so that soon we have cars running on water and water alone.

Working of existent Water Powered Automobiles

A slight modification done to the car can enable it to use water and gasoline mixture as fuel for running it. The gasoline tank is replaced with a water tank containing two metal plates which are used as electrodes. To provide the required charge to these plates they are connected to an appropriate electrical charge. An electric current passed through the water in this tank, then results in the electrolysis of the water, forming molecules of hydrogen and oxygen.

The oxygen molecules are formed at the positive electrode and the hydrogen molecules exist at the negatively charged metal electrode. It is at this electrode that the hydrogen molecules are combusted, thus producing the power that the car needs to run.

Future of Water Powered Automobiles

Presently water alone can not run your car, and instead a mixture of water and gasoline is required. The energy required to break up the water molecule into hydrogen molecules is still more than the energy buildup it provides to run the car. But further research in the field will hopefully give successful results, until which the present day water run vehicles are the best bet. Step by step instructions for modifying your engine to run on mixture of water and gasoline are widely available and can easily be implemented.
