‘Hydrogen-On-Tap’ Device Turns Trucks Into Fuel-Efficient Vehicles

The town of Carmel, Ind., has vehicles for plowing snow, salting streets, and carrying landscaping equipment. But 1 cherry-red pickup can do a thing no other car or truck can: develop its individual hydrogen.

A 45-kilogram metal box sits in the mattress of the function truck. When a driver starts off the engine, the device automatically begins concocting the colorless, odorless fuel, which feeds into the engine’s ingestion manifold. This prevents the truck from guzzling gasoline until the hydrogen offer operates out. The pickup has no gasoline-mobile module, a typical element in most hydrogen autos. No higher-tension storage tanks or refueling pumps are desired, both.
