A second driver is the need among industrial, institutional, and utility fuel users in the United States to lower fuel 1/5(2). To fuel your car, you would take your hydrogen-powered automobile to the “gas station.” Instead of filling up with gasoline or petroleum, you would fill up with liquid hydrogen. The hydrogen fuel mixes with the oxygen in the air in an electrochemical cell. The combination of these two elements creates electricity.
