How Hydrogen Fuel is Made from Poop

May 6th, 2015 by

There’s nothing like the smell of cow poop in the morning. Smells like springtime.

Toyota realized there’s another use for manure besides fertilizer: car fuel!

The 2016 Toyota Mirai is Toyota’s first hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle (FCV), running entirely on hydrogen.

The beautiful thing about hydrogen is that it is a clean way to power a car, emitting only water vapor in the exhaust. Unlike a battery powered car, which requires long charging sessions, a hydrogen fuel cell can be fueled up in minutes.

Unfortunately, our closest fueling station is in Cleveland. Combine that with the Mirai’s 300-mile range, and we probably won’t be selling many FCV at Preston Toyota of Boardman just yet.

Don’t fret, though, eco-conscious drivers. Our new inventory is still filled with some of the most efficient cars in town. Come on down today, and check out the incredible mileage and comfort of a Prius.
