No, I'm sure you'll make some hydrogen eventually...but your truck won't be driving down the road running on it.

Also...in the process you are going to learn something about trying to use distilled water for electrolysis...and that trying to build a hydrogen powered vehicle is going to take a lot of math...and that perpetual motion machines are not possible...and that the reason they don't use electrolysis to generate hydrogen and oxygen for fuel cell vehicles is there are other methods that are much more efficient...and that a high school chemistry class you slept through is no substitute for a college science education.

Instead of wasting your money on this, how about spending it on some college classes so you have the education to make a better attempt at it?

Well I didn't read through all of these thread cause I just don't have the time or the want to to do so.

One of the reasons hydrogen powered cars have not come out yet because it's too much of a dangerous fuel. It's so explosive that nobody has come up with a completely safe way to split it and fuel up without blowing up. There are so many other fuels that will work easier and better and safer. Safty is the key to the whole story.

That and the energy you get out of hydrogen fuel from water is equal to that you put into it via electrolysis. Thus, no net gain.

Reminds me of the first electric car i built. Worked great... for 11 miles. Then it needed to charge for 12 hours. I thought I was sooo smart, but it cost me a ton of money (well.. $2300, and at 16 that was a lot) and I couldn't even drive it to school.

Just because you missed a few key parts, doesn't mean you're stupid. Don't let them get you down, you've obviously grasped the basics of hydrogen fuel in a few short days. Give it some time, and you might figure it out.

Oh well, "if at first you don't succeed, get a bigger hammer!"

Also... If you want to be taken seriously, don't scream any time someone questions your idea. And.. Show some damn proof! I can claim that I made an airplane that runs off used breast implants. Until I show proof, everyone is going to call me stupid. Just my 2 cents.

They have a good way to fuel up at the honda test facility for the propane and hydrogen cars. its kinda like they links that connect to a space ship it goes in and twist and locks into place and thats what they are using to fuel up...but the truth is that it still is a very dangerous and explosive element...

what they need to look into is making a system that incase there is an "serious" accident the container will brake and seal off from car...idk...maybe we need to take a look back at all those electric rangers they destroyed...
