The problem with hydrogen fuel cell vehicles- if that's what you meant- is the low power output. Typically those get ridiculously low fuel economy as compared to anything else- the actual fuel cost might be less, but that depends on how you get your distilled water, and how far you travel. I like that idea too- if it can be made sustainable.

For one, you need to have enough "Brown's gas" to start the engine, so that means turning the key on, and waiting until the pressure is high enough. I don't know how that will work. Would a mix stay in the lines? Is there a danger of sparks from the electrical components on a low tank? What voltage gives the best return on gas with the lowest electrolyte? What is an acceptable electrolyte?
