I know, I know. We talk a lot about the fuel that powers our cars on these pages.
We complain about high gas prices, we get cautiously excited about low prices, we wonder if governments should increase taxes on fossil fuels, and we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of alternative-fuel vehicles.
The question always comes back to this: environmental effects. Fossil fuels are damaging to pump out of the earth, and they pollute the atmosphere when burned. Electric-powered cars don’t emit any gasses when driving, but the production of the electricity that charges them can be harmful.
Hydrogen is, theoretically, clean from all angles. A new filling station in California could change the game on how we think about fueling our cars.
