Water powered car kit for less than R$ 200

Is a car powered by water possible? “Technology” that uses electricity from the alternator to extract hydrogen from water, promises to reduce fuel consumption in traditional cars by more than 80%.

The best in Brazil are the Brazilians, with the high prices of gasoline, ethanol, diesel and CNG, there is no shortage of advertisements for accessories that promise to reduce vehicle fuel consumption. What's new on the internet is a device that promises to convert conventional combustion engine cars into “water-powered” cars through a product known as hydrogen kit.

The technological gadgetry offered on social networks and sites e-commerce platform has a starting price of less than R$200, but can exceed R$1.000, depending on the brand and configuration. But the promise is the same: the “technology” uses electricity from the alternator to extract hydrogen from water, which is stored in a tank.

“Technology” that uses electricity from the alternator to extract hydrogen from water, promises to reduce fuel consumption in traditional cars by more than 80%.

Flammable, hydrogen is then directed to the engine's air intake system, to generate internal combustion together with gasoline, ethanol or diesel. some sites They promise a reduction of more than 80% in consumption thanks to this kit. After all, does it really work or is it just another fake news?

According to experts acquiring such hydrogen kits is equivalent to throwing money away, as the amount of gas generated is insufficient to cause a significant change in engine consumption.

Will it be possible to make a water-powered car? Iberê from Manual do Mundo responds.

For Iberê from Manual do Mundo “The account doesn’t add up. The electricity required to extract hydrogen from water with these kits is greater than the energy that the resulting gas is capable of generating in the engine.”

Many people argue that it is possible to build a water-powered car. It would work as follows: you add water to the vehicle, apply electrical energy to carry out electrolysis, separating the water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. When breaking water, these two gases are produced. When you combine hydrogen and oxygen and light a flame, combustion occurs that could, theoretically, be used to power a car's engine, thus creating a water-powered vehicle.

Watch the video or continue reading the article: below is a clear explanation of why this doesn't work in practice.

For starters, when you combine two hydrogen molecules with one oxygen molecule, you create water. To separate water back into hydrogen and oxygen, you need to perform electrolysis, a process that consumes electrical energy. You generate energy when you burn hydrogen with oxygen, but the problem is that the energy it takes to split water is exactly the same as what you get back when you burn it. Basically, you spend energy and then recover the same amount, resulting in an inefficient cycle.

Furthermore, the energy transformations involved are not efficient. When burning hydrogen and oxygen, the energy obtained is not fully utilized, and electrolysis requires more energy than the amount initially anticipated, making the process unfeasible.

Despite this, there are vehicles that use water to generate hydrogen with the help of large batteries that sustain electrolysis for a prolonged time. Thus, hydrogen is generated and burned until the battery is exhausted.

In conclusion, at the end of the day, you have a car that is powered by a battery, not water. It is not an electric car in the traditional sense, as it uses combustion, but depends on electricity from the battery to function, stopping when the battery runs out.

Hydrogen: the fuel of the future! Multinationals Audi, Nissan, Volkswagen, Bosch and Porsche have invested in this technology.

Without a doubt, hydrogen and its different applications will play an important role in mobility. Countries like Germany have directed a lot of money to developing and improving gas technology as a way of reducing and, in the future, cutting dependence on fossil fuels.

Since June 2021, multinationals Bosch, Nissan and Volkswagen have been investing heavily in technology that obtains hydrogen from ethanol; the fuel comes to revolutionize the automobile industry in the world!

The multinational giant Bosch is a company that believes in the electrification of cars using ethanol. This will be possible thanks to the development of the ethanol-based fuel cell, which is also being developed by Nissan and Volkswagen. With this technology, a chemical reaction that takes place inside the vehicle's engine removes hydrogen from ethanol and generates electricity, capable of moving it autonomously and without generating polluting emissions.

“This is a great opportunity for Brazil and the ethanol industry to generate energy with a hydrogen cell, both for stationary and for urban mobility. By 2050, we know that we will have mobility free of carbon dioxide (CO2) and Brazil made the right decision in giving prestige to ethanol, as it is a biofuel that also boosts the local economy and generates jobs for the country”, said the president of Bosch in Latin America, Besaliel Botelho.

Bosch brought manufacturing from the USA to Brazil and has since offered many secondary, higher education and internship positions at its factories in SP, Curitiba and other Brazilian regions

Since 2021, when the multinational Bosch brought manufacturing from the USA to Brazil, the multinational has not stopped hiring and has made many secondary and higher education job openings available on April 14th, in addition to internship vacancies. The opportunities are to serve factories in São Paulo, Curitiba and other Brazilian regions.

Benefits: Bosch provides employees with medical and dental care; on-site cafeteria; private pension plan; medication reimbursement; life insurance; Variable salary; Christmas basket; chartered or VT.

Registration: Those interested in applying for job openings, must register the resume on the company's website at this link. Good luck! Remembering that Click Petróleo e Gás is not responsible for the selection process. Opportunities opened by Bosch can be filled at any time.
