well all you need to get hydrogen from water is a 9v battery and some water. the problem with that is that it takes more fuel to get the power to extract hydrogen from water than it does to refine oil.
If we were to run exclusively on hydrogen, it would take more hydrogen to produce and deliver it than would be made in the first place. if it could be run through pipe like oil than it would start to be reasonable, but it would still be more expensive that petroleum fuels.
as for extracting it from water inside of a car, it would be very expensive because when it is extracted you get awesome hydrogen, but you also get oxygen which is very very bad for most metals, and can be dangerous.
I just really want a bike with a turbo, because their are those times when you pull up too a stop light next to a cop, and I think a really loud PPTTTSHIIISHHHHHHHH would make his day. =P
