Can Cars Use Water for Fuel?

To fuel a hydrogen vehicle from water, power is utilized to produce hydrogen by electrolysis. The subsequent hydrogen is a vitality bearer that can control a vehicle by responding with oxygen from the air to make water, either through consuming in a burning motor or catalyzed to create power in an energy component.

Strictly speaking - NO!

Water [ H2O ] is essentially hydrogen oxide. It is the end of the line thermodynamically, & there is no chemical process that can reduce it to a lower energy state.
However; it can be used as an energy storage fluid, in fact, has been, ever since the beginning of the ‘Steam Age’. Energy derived from burning [ reacting with oxygen, to form one or more oxide ] was pumped into water, to raise it’s temperature, change it’s physical form, & compress it. That stored energy could be extracted [ to a degree] by allowing the steam to cool & expand inside the engine, in return for mechanical work ( arguably also involving input from the outside world & atmospheric pressure )
Nowadays, people look towards using water as a storage ‘fluid’ by splitting it electrolytically [ hopefully with ‘renewable’ energy ] into H2 & O2. The hydrogen gas can then be recombined remotely with the same, or other oxygen, in a ‘fuel cell’, or burner, to give back that energy that was originally expended in the splitting.

Yes, you can run your car on water. ... The key is to take electricity from the car's electrical system to electrolyze water into a gaseous mixture of hydrogen and oxygen, often referred to as Brown's Gas or HHO or oxyhydrogen.

Water-fuelled car have not really invaded the market, but it’s undeniable that they are a thing. The speculations of making the running of car cheaper, more efficient, and more environment friendly, are being made since 1996, but it still has not become dominant.


According to the researchers, the energy from water is gathered through the process of electrolysis. The process uses energy to split the water molecules (H2O) into the component elements of Hydrogen and Oxygen. Hydrogen then, is used to power the engine of the car.

Many experts, however, have denied the possibility of this process being environment friendly as a higher amount of energy is required for electrolysis and the process emit various greenhouse gases which are harmful for the environment. Unfortunately, there has not come up any technology as of yet, which can solve this problem.

Seeing the hiked prices of petrol and diesel however, who doesn’t want to believe in the existence of water-fuelled car, which will cost a negligible amount to run?

Markani, from Madhya Pradesh, thought of such a car, which runs on water and calcium carbide. He has filed for a patent for the technology, and everyone is looking up to it.

Before this, efforts towards a car running on water was made by the Japanese company Genepax, which thought of an electric car running on not just water, but even on tea. The company was closed in 2009.
