New System for generating hydrogen on board your car.

The system uses aluminum and gallium plus a secret ingredient in water.
The aluminum turns into aluminum oxide and can be recycled back into aluminum.
The gallium is not consumed either and it too can be recycled and used again.
When dropping the puck into the water it breaks down like an alka-seltzer tablet and makes hydrogen to power the vehicle.
Ultimate cool.

They didn't mention the range of the vehicle.  I'd be curious to know what the conversion efficiency is.  I think it would be more efficient to put the hydrogen into a fuel cell.

At least they don't need hydrides to store it. It's initial use is to offset the cost of gasoline and increase the mileage 15-20%. Dual fuel.
