Toyota has high hopes for hydrogen fuel vehicles

hydrogen fuel vehiclesJapanese automaker Toyota has been working to draw attention to its hydrogen-powered concept vehicle recently, which it plans to launch in 2015. The company has been showing off the vehicle and its capabilities at various auto shows around the world and has successfully generated a significant amount of hype behind the product. The problem, however, is that many consumers believe that hydrogen-powered vehicles will be too expensive to be considered viable, largely due to the high costs of fuel cells themselves.

Cost of fuel cells remains a problematic issue

The cost of fuel cell technology has long been a serious problem when it comes to clean transportation. Hydrogen fuel cells are expensive because of their use of platinum and other expensive materials. Most automakers have opted to develop their own fuel cells, which is an expensive endeavor. The costs associated with fuel cell technology are translated into the ultimate cost of a hydrogen-powered vehicle. In many cases, these vehicles are expected to cost an average of $80,000.

Toyota successfully reduce vehicle costs

Toyota has been working to reduce the cost of fuel cell vehicles since it began developing its own. The automaker recently announced that its own hydrogen-powered vehicle will cost approximately $40,000, significantly less than what other automakers are estimating for their own vehicles. Toyota has accomplished this through the use of a smaller fuel cell, which requires fewer materials without sacrificing its energy output.

Fuel cell vehicles may be cost competitive by 2030

Toyota believes that fuel cell vehicles will be cost competitive with other kinds of electric vehicles by 2030. Advances in fuel cell technology will play a major role in this prediction and fuel cells have become a popular subject in the science community in recent years. Toyota plans to sell as many as 10,000 units of its hydrogen-powered vehicle in 2015, but believes that sales will steadily increase as fuel cell vehicles become less expensive and fuel cell technology becomes more capable.

I have always had an interest in this story.  My Dad told be about a guy in Forrest Hill, MD that had an auto that ran on water and he also had other H-HO technology at his home.  My Dad also said he feared for his life and had a large fence around his property with guards protecting him and his family.  I think I was 18-19 years old when he shared that story with me.

Thanks for the research to whoever put it all together.  Great job

The stories of Stan Meyer’s water car have fascinated me for years. I hope this guy succeeds! -Bill
 
The secret of Stan Meyer’s “car on water” even he himself did not know

Posted at:  http://www.tuks.nl/wiki/index.php/Main/StanMeyersSecret

By Arend Lammertink, MScEE.

What follows is what I believe to be the true story about Stan Meyer’s dune buggy, which has been shown to run on water on a TV station in Ohio.

 
Somewhere around 1980-1985 the car ran on water, but then it stopped working.
Why?
 
What happened?
 
He happened to have used electropolished stainless steel.
 
But he did not know that.
 
Nobody did.
 
And nobody found out.
 
Until 2013.

The discovery of a secret

My investigation of this technology began at the energetic forum, where I joined in 2008. In December 2009, I noted that the similarities between John Bedini’s “cold boiling batteries” and Stan Meyer’s technology were striking:

“All in all, I think both are using the same energy source: the super-polarized dielectricum and that is which is apparantly able to provide excess energy.”

Aaron Murakami commented:

“I have showed this for years. Imhotep even mentioned it about a cap that seems to not be able to die because it keeps itself charged up like an electret – from a conditioning effect. Anyway, there is something to it.”

“The “boiling” effect isn’t necessarily unwanted when charging batteries with the Bedini method. They will COLD boil, even up to an hour after the charger is disconnected if using for example, high capacitance low voltage discharges.”

Based on this, we can conclude that there is at least one known way to produce hydrogen and oxygen gas without any current being fed into the system and without any resonance whatsoever taking place.

Then, I did some experiments with a home-made electrolytic capacitor, using the recipe of Nyle Steiner. An interesting cluebrought forth by Steiner is that old school electrolytic rectifiers, very similar to home made electrolytic capacitors, produce a visible glow during operation. Such a glow has also been reported by some of the more successful water fuel cell replicators.

The conclusion so far is that Meyers fuel cell must have been some kind of electrolytic capacitor made out of stainless steel instead of aluminum. Characteristic of electrolytic capacitors is that these are made by growing a very thin layer of a dielectric material, a material that can be polarized, on one of the metal capacitor plates. This is what gives an electrolytic capacitor its capacity. And as we saw, these kind of things show interesting behavior when they are charged with high voltage spikes, as both Bedini and Meyer did.
