I think this is what we can do as a hobby:
(1) construct a wind turbine generator to generate electricity.
(2) use the electricity generated to electrolyze the water.
(3) use salt water and use low voltage + large number of electrode, this
will make sure the electrolysis process has the highest efficiency.

(4) collect the hydrogen gas. Of course you know that hydrogen is very
explosive and you have to very carefull not to mix the hydrogen with air.
(5) Pump the hydroge gas into a car's NGV tank when the tank is empty.
(assume you have a natural gas powered vehicle)
(6) you only need to pump 600psi, after than you drive your car (in petrol
mode) to a
CNG station to pump natural gas to full tank that is 3000psi.
(7) That means now you have 20% hydrogen blended with 80% natural gas in the
CNG tank.

(8) you should be able to run your car now with this 20% H + 80% NG.
(correct me if I am wrong)

Contemplate all the machinery and pressure vessels you'll need to
design and fabricate to do that. Have you ever built a model steam
engine?

Have you ever experienced third degree burns?

After you have turned your ideas into hardware, please come back and share
what you have learned.
