It is therefore the right time to look out for alternates of gas so that in long run you save money that can be utilized for other purposes.

Actually water is made up off hydrogen and oxygen and if you apply energy of approximately 285 kJ, the water molecules will dissociate into the hydrogen and oxygen atoms and consequently the hydrogen can be utilized for generating energy. Hydrogen is one of the best fuels as it has highest calorific value and it can be passed into the engine along with the conventional gasoline or petrol. The advantage of hydrogen here in combustion chamber of your car is, as it is mixed with gasoline it starts immediately burning and the energy is quickly produced.

The quick burning of fuel will utilize the gasoline more efficiently. Here in engine gasoline along with hydrogen will burnt quickly and will release energy and the vehicle will utilize more percentage of the energy or in other words the efficiency of the vehicle will go up.

The burning of hydrogen will produce water vapor and these will come out through the exhaust. Further due to this water vapor inside of combustion chamber and cylinder, the temperature of the engine will not go high and the engine will run smoothly under cooler atmosphere.

The advantage of hydrogen is here to stimulate the gasoline so that it burnt fast in the combustion chamber. This will reduce the percentage of incomplete combustion and the efficiency of vehicle will go up. So, hydrogen here promoting the combustion of gasoline as well as reducing the input cost per mileage.
