At a time when rising fuel prices is creating a hole in the pockets of many Indian and people are rethinking ways to cut down ways to reduce expenses on travelling, there is a good news. A 21 year old city boy has found an solution that may go well with most auto makers as well as people in the country.
Shakti Prasad Sahoo, has come up with a brilliant idea of using water as fuel in vehicles. Amazing it may sound, but the young resident from Bhubaneswar who is continuing with his studies in the Central Institute of Plastic Engineering (CIPET), has successfully added a kit that is allowing him to run his bike on water.
The kit helps in converting water into hydrogen gas that is then used as a fuel for running the bike. The whole idea runs on the principles of electrolysis of water and all that you need is as fuel is – WATER! Shakti claims that a liter of water can produce enough fuel to cover a distance of 800-1000km. The young innovator says it took him two months to develop the task of developing the kit which one needs to add to his bike before starting to use water as fuel.
The young lad had earlier designed a battery in 2008 powered vehicle that had also won him huge applause. Shakti who says the present problem of rising fuel prices inspired him to come up with this unique idea , has become the talk of the town now.
