and just using pressure to store hydrogen is not very usefull for a
car.

I think 90 liters of hydrogen at 150 bar, is about the same amount of
energy as 8 liters of gasoline ......

It's hard to identify junkyard scrap stainless steel unless the
fabricator left the markings on it. And you don't want to buy it new
for a cost-saving hobby project!

You are confusing politically motivated research grants and reality.
INL was able to get someone to give them money to waste on this
project, and delude folks like you.  Doesn't mean it is a good idea.

If this idea was easy or even practical, we all being driving around
in cars powered by hydrogen, and since we're not, that SHOULD tell you
something. There are some real issues in making hydrogen a reality,
the largest in my view being storage.

I've read dozens of books on the topic and have listed some of the
better ones with a DIY slant below. The only other thing I've read
recently was an article about a guy who was converting hydrogen gas
into 40% hydrogen peroxide liquid for easy storage, but the engine was
a custom steam engine.

I'm a bigger believer in bio-fuels as a DIY home-scale solution, both
easy and practical, but who knows maybe you'll see something with
hydrogen that know one else has.

Good luck.

"Rocket Fighter" by Me163 pilot Mano Ziegler made me lose all interest
in experimenting with hydrogen peroxide. It's nearly a continuous
string of horrible fatal accidents.

How did the guy turn H2 into H2O2?


Have you found any practical, successful examples of wood
distillation?
