For the last two weeks, we’ve heard from two hydrogen fuel cell car drivers in California – Raoul Renaud, a retired former California Energy Commission attorney, and Tadashi Ogitsu, a scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
Renaud told H2 View that moving from a battery car to a fuel cell car was a “no brainer” because with hydrogen his behaviour didn’t change: he refuels at a gas station, it takes five minutes and then off he goes for another 300 or more miles.
Ogitsu said he weighed up the pros and cons of a battery electric versus hydrogen fuel cell car, eventually deciding on the latter due to the long driving range it offered. He told H2 View about his record drive range – 550.3 miles (880 kilometres) over about a week on a single tank of hydrogen.
