Hydrogen generation for existing cars

I have a new hero and his name is Joe Williams Sr.

The Montreal Gazette is reporting today about an invention he is hoping to bring to market. The general idea is this: by adding hydrogen into the fuel mix, gas burns much cleaner, and more efficiently. This means that more pollutants are burned in the chamber, and less pollutants are released into the atmosphere. Traditional problems with hydrogen have been things like how to safely store it under pressure. This invention bypasses that by only generating enough hydrogen as is needed, meaning you don't have to store any of it under pressure.

Bottom line, if you install this (or more accurately, a commercial version of this) into your car, you will notice slightly better fuel economy, but more importantly, you will have installed a system that removes much more pollutants from being released into the air. More info can be found here, although it's a bit heavy on the hype.
