The theory of running a car on water is all well and good - the only thing is that it also requires energy (electricity) to split the water into its relevant constituients (i.e hydrogen and oxygen). The energy required to do this on a small scale outweighs any gains. You can be sure if it was feasible either someone would be using it or the oil companies would have bought up the idea. I await the old idea of running an engine on coconuts to make appearance soon
