Northridge, CA, April 10, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars have been in the public view for several years now, yet we still don’t see them on the streets. The concept of using hydrogen as a clean burning fuel is the long term answer, but storing hydrogen on board is an impractical idea. Large fuel cells that present chemical disposal issues and the need for costly infrastructure with hydrogen fueling stations has cast serious doubt on the reality of ever seeing these vehicles populate our streets and highways.
How 2 Save Fuel (How2SaveFuel.Com), a Northridge, California based company is steadily approaching converting vehicles to hydrogen in a different way.
Rather than exposing automobile owners to the hazards of carrying supplies of hydrogen on board their vehicles, their patent pending technology generates hydrogen which gets consumed in the fuel mix immediately. Using electrolysis, a process wherein hydrogen is released from water molecules, How2SaveFuel's hydrogen hybrid systems economically convert pre-existing vehicles to environmentally friendly hybrids one vehicle at a time.
Attention - Time Sensitive: Your opportunity to find out more about this amazing technology is now. How 2 Save Fuel will be at the upcoming Earth Fair April 19th at Balboa Park in San Diego. A drawing for a free system, fully installed (a $1500 value) will be held at the end of the day. Stop by Booth 776 in the Pan America Plaza Exhibits to enter. More details about the Earth Fair event are on the website www.How2SaveFuel.com
How 2 Save Fuel hasn’t yet found a way for cars to run entirely on hydrogen produced from water, but what they are doing is revolutionary, a giant step in the right direction, the most professional hydrogen hybrid solution available and an answer which is affordable and available today.
For one thing, gas mileage increases when a How2SaveFuel.Com hydrogen hybrid system
is installed. The gains vary widely, but an average of 25 to 35% mpg boost is normal. Additionally, consumers notice an increase in horsepower and torque. A dynamometer test run recently on a 1989 Ford F250 Truck increased the horsepower from 181.75 to 188.75 and the torque from 266.20 ft pounds to 293.53. That equates to 7 more horsepower and 27.33 more foot pounds of torque.
But perhaps the greatest gain for all of us, especially observable on older vehicle engines, is a dramatic decrease in smog emissions.
The passage of California Assembly Bill 32 means that California’s greenhouse gas levels must be below 1990 levels by 2020, a 30% reduction. Two dramatic offenders, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide are commonly found in vehicle exhaust. Hydrogen hybrid systems which enable a higher level of combustion and result in less waste, decrease these emissions. A smog test run on the same Ford F250 lowered the CO2 (carbon) emissions from 12.2 PPM (parts per million) to zero and the NOx (nitrous) emissions from 338 PPM to 105 PPM, a 69% reduction. These results can be achieved immediately on any car, truck or sports utility vehicle (suv) without the need to build an infrastructure or anything new in order to service them.
The result on the Ford F250 was over a one third decrease in smog emissions, and this vehicle’s “before” results were still considered passable.
How 2 Save Fuel's hydrogen hybrid systems will have a serious positive impact on the air quality and provide sustainability for our planet once they are out in general use. That alone is reason enough to do a conversion. But with the “side-benefits” of increased gas mileage (mpg) and horsepower which will lead to a reduction of dependence upon imported fossil fuels it is obvious that what How2SaveFuel.Com is doing will become the normal power configuration for the generations to come to save fuel.
