The market for environment-friendly cars is extending to a bigger level day by day. In relation to it, India and other automobiles corporations are finding better ways to reduce pollution and use better fuel in the cars. The cars are day by day getting modified so as to reduce pollution and cut the cost.
You may have heard of several experiments performed across the world to develop such cars that support the safety of the environment in all possible ways. Here is a MAN who tried and got succeeded in creating a water-fuelled car.
Before getting into what a man tried and did, let's know what actual water-fuelled car refers to. This car hypothetically derives its energy from water.
A car mechanic at Sagar in Madhya Pradesh of India experimented over half a year and claims to have designed an astounding car that runs on fuel obtained from carbide and water.
Mohammad Raees Markani, 44, had improvised 800cc engine car since last five years and now the vehicle runs on fuel which is as cheap as Rs 10 to 20 per litre. (i.e. $0.150 to $0.301)
Raees explained that this car runs on acetylene gas, the gas obtained from a chemical reaction between water and calcium carbide.
The acetylene gas is also used for many industrial purposes like welding and movable lighting for miners. But here, Raees used it to push the car engines.
Raees told that he never went to school, he never wrote or read anything. The idea pumped up in his mind when he was gas welding a part of his car in the workshop years ago and from then onwards he began investigating on it.
A car which is fuel efficient and also gives an average of 50-60 kmph. This car costs less than two pence.
This car needs no driver and a self running car works on remote control.
Markani added further that he now has a patent for his water car and he was invited by Chinese automobile companies to set up a plant on his idea.
The reason behind his NO was simply that he wanted to set up the plant in his hometown, Madhya Pradesh.
His car costs close to nothing to operate is eco-friendly too. So this car is definitely going to reach the heights of demand. Now the Indians don't need to spend 70 Rs for per litre of fuel.
