    I don't have audio at work, so I wasn't able to hear what the video said. Is there a corresponding article?

    However, "water-powered" might be a bit misleading. It looks like the power probably comes from something added to the water:

    Water is added to a hydrogen generator, which produces hydrogen to run the car. I imagine that there are batteries somewhere.

    I have ordered one to park next to my Arbitrage GT.

    Already, the Tuners have been at work ,trying to figure out which bottled water will make the most power.

    Finally, we have a good reason for power drinks.

    No, not exactly. Using the hydrogen will eventually result in water again as a by product.

    I don't think that the water powered car would desiccate the atmosphere, or the planet.

    Jerky, anyone?
