WSU Researcher Hopes to Make Fuel Pumps Obsolete

Washington State University faculty member M. Grant Norton envisions a day when filling up at the fuel pump will be a thing of the past. Itís a vision that relies on hydrogen gas, a potentially clean, alternative fuel that currently eludes our tanks, primarily because there are no reasonable mechanisms for storing the highly explosive gas.
