ROFL - more expensive than gasoline per mile - and similar GHG emissions at the refinery to make H2 vs. burning gas in an ICE - yeah that's a huge win! {sigh}

Here in Ontario Canada, off-peak power is $0.068 per kWh, so double the savings again if compared to gas or hydrogen.

The future of transport is hydrogen.

The whole purpose behind Hydrogen was to keep the production and distribution in the hands of the same clique: the Oil companies!
It does not make any sense to use Hydrogen to power a vehicle: highly dangerous, expensive and totally impractical.

The big problems with H2 are 1) it's a low density gas that is difficult to liquify or compress, and 2) it must be manufactured. Overall, the ramifications are now clear - compared to battery electric, hydrogen is a loser for cars. It's time as a useful distraction is nearly over.

But here's an idea: combine four atoms of hydrogen with one atom of carbon, which yields a gas that is much easier to compress. Actually, you don't have to manufacture this gas - it comes up out of the ground in many place! Yes, methane contains carbon, but only half as much as gasoline.

[It amuses me to look at things from different perspectives. A marketing person could come up with a way to sell natural gas with the slogan "Hydrogen you can use!"
