The refueling process will be a mere replacement of a cartridge,and the need for refueling stations will vanish. We will be able to purchase our cartridges at places like Walmart etc, and store a few extra ones either in our car or at home. So much for the death grip of the oil companies on us consumers!

So, the question of efficiency becomes moot. Of course, there are already cars built that run with only water. (check it out in You Tube).The problem lies in the cost of replacing all the fossil fuel vehicles on the road right now. Not many are able to buy a new car just right now. So, it becomes a problem of government subsidies. Much like they’re doing with digital TV, but a lot costlier.The quickest solution is to adapt current vehicles to run on renewable, non-polluting fuels. I have been using ethyl ether in my gas for 15 years and getting almost 50% more mpg in my old SUV. It has run for 215K miles and it still going strong. Haven’t had a tuneup in 150K miles, since I started using the ether mixed with the gasoline.

Both the article and video didn’t report more than what seemed obvious already.

Batteries are better than fuel cells because the refueling station is almost anywhere there is aan electric plug. Sure it takes longer, but it beats the cost of hydrogen.
