Record Setting Toyota Fuel Cell Car
Toyota Motor Corp. said Friday that its new hydrogen powered fuel-cell car had successfully completed a long-distance road test and was shown to be 25 percent more fuel efficient than earlier versions.

The FCHV vehicle was driven about 560 kilometers (350 miles) on a single fueling and finished with 30 percent of the hydrogen still in the tank, said Yoshihiko Masuda, who heads Toyota's fuel-cell car development.

The vehicle should be able to travel 880 kilometers on a full tank of hydrogen, which is "the longest-distance journey for fuel-cell cars (on a single fueling) as far as I know," said Masuda.

Earlier versions of the FCHV could run 330 kilometers (206 miles) without refueling. They have been leased to public offices as well as energy-related companies.

The new model is one quarter more fuel efficient due to improvements in the performance of the fuel cell, Toyota said. The fuel tank capacity has also been increased.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel Saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved. Search engine optimization, Try to Be happy
