According to the June 2005 issue of Road & Track:
A million a pop for hydrogen stations? That doesn’t seem too bad, considering that an infrastructure will promote the develoment and manufacture of more fuel-cell vehicles (FCVs) and should make the stations profitable somewhat quickly.
Questions: How is hydrogen actually gotten from petroleum? Is it more efficient to extract the hydrogen and use the rest of the petroleum for something else, or to just use the petroleum as we always have? What would it take to extract enough hydrogen from non-petroleum sources to supply a growing number of FCVs?
