Shell offers free fill-ups for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles

The oil company opens a station in Newport Beach where hydrogen will be available at no charge, but only 200 cars statewide can take advantage of it.

By Jerry Hirsch, Los Angeles TimesAugust 1, 2012, 4:45 p.m. Shell has opened a new station in Newport Beach where drivers fill up at no charge. That’s right: A big oil company is offering unlimited free gas.

But there is a catch. The gas is hydrogen, and it’s free only to those driving a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.

That’s not a lot of people. Only 200 fuel cell vehicles are operating in the state, said Catherine Dunwoody, executive director of the California Fuel Cell Partnership. Automakers plan to offer more, but even then the highest estimates are for no more than 50,000 in operation in California five years from now, she said.

The cars will be expensive — as much as double the price of a gasoline compact or mid-size auto, according to current estimates. At the moment, they can only be leased. read more

San Jose Mercury News: Bush pushing hydrogen fuel as alternative

San Jose Mercury News: Bush pushing hydrogen fuel as alternative

Associated Press

WASHINGTON – President Bush stared inquisitively down into the nozzle of a hydrogen fuel hose on Wednesday, then pumped the fuel into a blue compact car as he renewed his plea for Congress to pass a wide-ranging energy bill.

But with the cost of hydrogen double that of premium gasoline, even the president acknowledged that seeing today’s children take their driver’s tests in pollution-free cars is a long-term goal.

“This is the beginning of fantastic technology,” Bush said at a Shell station in northeast Washington, the first retail hydrogen and gasoline fueling station in North America. “Hydrogen is the wave of the future. We’re too dependent on foreign sources of energy.” read more

US Post Office To Test Fuel Cell Vehicle

The Wall Street Journal: US Post Office To Test Fuel Cell Vehicle

DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

Posted 16 June 04

WASHINGTON (AP)–The Postal Service said Tuesday it will begin testing a fuel-cell powered vehicle in the Washington area.

The agency said it is leasing a General Motors Corp. (GM) minivan with a fuel-cell powered engine to test its use as a delivery vehicle.

Fuel cells run on the energy produced when hydrogen and oxygen are mixed, rather than using gasoline. The only byproduct of a fuel cell is water.

The post office said the van will go into use in September. Royal Dutch/Shell Group’s (RD) Shell Hydrogen will provide hydrogen for the vehicle. read more
