By the way...is this fuel can be used in normal CNG vehicles or certain modified vehicles only?

Not on the CNG ones.
There are cars powered by batteries which are run with water. Hydrogen is fed and mixes with oxygen to make it . Those batteries are actually many laptop batteries ( Source Top Gear season 12 6th / 7th episode)

Umm, no, the batteries aren't "run by water".

Please look up the wikipedia article on Fuel Cells. They aren't exactly simple devices. Top Gear was exaggerating/over simplifying as usual.

Also, they aren't on any commercially produced laptops yet because they are a) expensive, b) extremely volatile. Imagine dropping your laptop and instead of the sound of a shattering LCD, an explosion occurs.

Also, the amount of water that comes out of the exhaust is minute. Miniscule even. Most of it is removed in vapour form and even then, very little actual matter comes out of the exhaust pipe. Hydrogen is truly a clean fuel.

If you go further ahead, there is another IOC pump by the name of Ganga.
Checked on my way back. Its sector 19.

Hi Eddy...its been such a long time after the last post but I still want to know if the IOC Hydrogen+CNG Pump has opened up in Dwarka or for that matter anywhere in India?

hey Guys... I have been reading all your comments. but sorry to say that commercial use of Fuel cell is around 12-15 years away. You should watch this documentary by sony pictures "who killed the electric car". This documentary highlights how petro & auto comapnies nexus killed the electric and brought the fuel cell in focus.

20:80 H2-CNG means that they are essentially pushing the residual gases from LNG production into a CNG stream!
