Most people love a truck instead of a sedan due to its durable chassis and spacious interior design. Trucks are also useful for carrying heavy loads from one location to another. The current global crude oil supply is in question and that has lead to local gasoline prices to raise at an alarming rate. The current event has caused many hardships for truck owners due to the inflated fuel expense bill. Are there any ways to counter high fuel prices? One suggestion is to use a truck hydrogen conversion kit. How does the technology works? This article will reveal the hidden secrets of using water as fuel for trucks.
In essence, a truck running on water fuel is a hydrogen-hybrid vehicle. This new energy system uses hydrogen gas (H2) as a supplement power source for vehicles. The hydrogen gas for trucks can easily be generated from water through an electrolysis process. From high school science class, we know that water is the product of 2 units of hydrogen and one unit of oxygen because its chemical name H2O. Hydrogen gas bubbles will be produced when the electrolysis device is switched on with power supply from the battery. The idea is to collect the H2 and vent it into the engine through a series of rubber hoses connected to the air intake system.
When a truck engine is running, it will suck air and the hydrogen gas into the combustion chambers. H2 drawn into the chambers will combined with normal gasoline fume and ignited. The ignition will produce a strong explosion due to the high potency of hydrogen gas. In theory, when a truck is burning equal amount of gasoline with a higher engine power, it has a potential to travel further so increasing its mileage. Higher fuel mileage equals to better cost savings for truck owners.
The truck hydrogen conversion kit can be installed by anyone. You do not need a science degree to do the modification yourself. The good new is all the parts required for the conversion kit can be purchased from a hardware store. You will need a step by step modification guide to assist you. There are many guides you can choose from the web. With the current high fuel prices, any technology that can reduce gasoline expenses will be a blessing.
