DOE Completes Testing of Hydrogen-fueled eTec ICE.

The Idaho National Laboratory (INL) recently reported that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has completed baseline performance testing of a 2003 Ford pickup converted by Electric Transportation Engineering Corporation (eTec) to run on hydrogen fuel fired in the vehicle's internal combustion engine (ICE).

According to INL, the vehicle employs three Dynetek fuel storage tanks at a nominal pressure of 2,900 psi to store approximately 6.5 gasoline gallon equivalents (GGE) of pure hydrogen.

INL noted that initial fleet testing of the vehicle has yielded an average of 17.2 miles per GGE after the first 2,800 miles.
