    Unhappy Fuel cell vehicles, the future soon?

    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?
