H2O Water-Powered Cars

There is a new car company in Japan making cars that run completely on water! The strange thing is that it’s actually old news. People have been driving H2O water-powered cars since the 1980s. Kidzworld investigates!!!

If you are looking for an idea for a science project, a water-powered car will really impress your teacher. Not only is it interesting to learn how the car works, but you might help create awareness about all the environmental issues that could save the world from some deadly oil problems.

How it Works…

H2O Water-powered cars are not much different than gasoline-powered cars. They both start with a BOOM!

Gas Cars

You probably know that gas and fire can cause an explosion. Well that’s how cars create energy to move. Gas ignites through a sparkplug and explodes into the pistons to make the car go.

Water Cars

Everyone knows that water and fire completely puts out the fire and there is no chance for an explosion. However, water is made out of hydrogen and oxygen (H2O) and if you separate these two elements, the hydrogen can be used just like gasoline. The hydrogen goes into the sparkplug and BOOM… explodes into the pistons to make the car go!

See Ya Smog

Hooray!!! These H2O water-powered cars release nothing but oxygen out of the tailpipe. Whoa, take your pick… yucky, stinky black smoke from gas/oil-powered cars or clean transparent oxygen from water-powered cars.

It’s no secret that gasoline-powered cars cause pollution, smog, and nasty oil spills in the Ocean. So what’s the hold up… why aren’t we all changing to H2O powered cars? The answer to that is kind of scary.

Gas Cash

Water-powered cars don’t need any special kind of water to run. You could actually use any type of water. You can use water from a creek, water from the rain… water from your toilet! So no one would ever have to go to a gas station again… ever. All the gas companies would go out of business. These companies are very, very, VERY powerful. They don’t make millions, they don’t make billions, but they make trillions of dollars every year. They are probably the big reason why water-powered cars are not available to buy at your local Volkswagon or Acura dealership… and never will be.

Even though people can’t buy a water-powered car right now, many people are building their own water-powered cars. In fact, all the instructions are available on the internet if you search how to do it. OK, it’s not going to be easy to make one but if you care about the environment or just want to save some money after you get your driver’s license… a water-powered car might be a project that you’re willing to spend some serious time on to help change the World.
