Fuel cell device on video

Here's an example of what I'm writing about, except this is still water being electrolyzed. Water requires much more energy to separate into hydrogen and oxygen. Whereas, methanol can be separated into carbon dioxide and hydrogen with a lot less energy. Now, as I mentioned, you can produce this hydrogen on demand to feed into a fuel cell (as demonstrated in this video) which can run a motor which can power a car.

By the way, there's a lot of superfluous talk here about oil fields and such. What interests me here is an energy source which splits the water into hydrogen and oxygen, which gets feeds into a fuel cell which in turn powers a motor.

Another comment: there's a lot going on here. I wonder about that.
