An Israeli company may have found a way to solve the major problems that have been hampering Hydrogen car development to date, mainly the facts that hydrogen does not store well at extremely low temperatures (the most advanced model I've heard of to date could only perform in temperatures no lower than -20, which just isn't enough for Canadians like me, or even the some northern reaches of Europe), and the fact that they have yet to find a way to store enough Hydrogen on a vehicle to give it a viable enough driving distance between refueling.

The solution they've come across? Using light weight wires such as Magnesium and Aluminum that can be used to make hydrogen on the fly when combined with boiling water.

The full article can be found here:

So what do you think, can you picture yourself driving up to the fuel stating and ordering a coil of Magnesium in the future? How practice do you think this is?

I hope not, I'll stick with my truck that only gets 5mpg, than to have to buy a vehical that is hydrogen powered. That still doesn’t solve the problem with running out of the fuel. What happens when you run out of those metals? And I don’t believe it will coast the same as a regular vehical maybe a new Mercedes.
