Hydrogen fuel pump installed at LA gas station

California’s first retail hydrogen station opened on Thursday. The Shell station, which is currently charging $4.59 per gallon of regular gas, just installed a new bright blue hydrogen fuel pump to help fuel the 300 or so hydrogen powered cars that are currently or about to be on the road in California.

All of the hydrogen powered cars are part of demonstration projects sponsored by various car companies – GM has about 80 Chevrolet Equinox vehicles, BMW has several Hydrogen 7 Series sedans in the hands of various Hollywood celebrities, and Honda is currently starting to lease about 200 FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel cell cars.

  1. THE ONLY COMPANY THAT I HAVE READ ABOUT THAT I THINK HAS A SOLUTION TO SOLVE THIS OIL DEPENDENCY AND ENVIROMENTAL PROBLEM IS A CALIFORNIA COMPANY CALLED GREEN SOLUTIONS & TECHNOLOGIES L.L.C.. THEY HAVE AND ARE STILL DEVELOPING A NETOWRK OF EXISTING GAS STATIONS TO PROVIDE ALTERNATIVE FUELS. THIS WAY YOU SOLVE THE CHICKEN OR EGG PROBLEM. ONCE THIS NETWORK IS UP PEOPLE WILL CONSIDER BUYING A CAR THAT RUNS ON SOMETHING OTHER THAN GAS!! THANK GOD SOMEONE ACTUALLY THOUGHT OF THIS AND THIS GIVES ME INSENTIVE TO BUY A FLEX FUEL OR CNG VEHICLE.

  2. Hydrogen Fuel is very promising, i only hope that we can mass produce soon enough.~~,

  3. hydrogen fuel is not yet very practical and cost effective today..~

  4. i think that the best fuel that we can use is Hydrogen, this does not product polluting gases at all’`-

  5. hydrogen fuel is definitely the best way to go, it is 100% non-polluting and reneweable-~:
