Malcolm Bricklin reveals a few more details of his hydrogen plans
According to Bricklin, his hydrogen-on-demand unit measures just four by six by eight inches (about the size of a coffee cup, he says) and will increase the fuel mileage of any internal combustion engine by 50 to 100 percent. He further suggests that the biggest hurdles his team had to overcome in making the unit work was "overheating, blowing out the engine's O2 sensors and corrosion of the stainless steel housing unit."
Naturally, it will cost a lot of money to purchase up to 300,000 new vehicles from GM and Chrysler to start this venture, which is why Bricklin is hoping to get funding from the Department of Energy as part of its $25 billion AVTM program to promote the manufacture of eco-friendly automobiles.
