    Unhappy Fuel cell vehicles, the future soon?

    Heres a good link to piece on fuel cell vehicles.

    Notice that all these vehicles carry a 5000 psi tank of hydrogen. I hope they make the cars out of fire proof material!!!

    Post Burning or Deformed?

    Here is the Canutec page regrarding Compressed hydrogen.

    FIRE OR EXPLOSION
    ∑ EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE.
    ∑ Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames.
    ∑ Will form explosive mixtures with air.
    ∑ Vapors from liquefied gas are initially heavier than air and spread along ground.
    ∑ Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back.
    ∑ Containers may explode when heated.
    ∑ Ruptured cylinders may rocket.


    Any thoughts on how one might approach a burning or severly deformed car with 3600 PSI hydrogen tanks hidden somewhere inside?
