From the outside, Hodges Bay resident Gus Greaux’s Suzuki minivan C685 looks just like any other vehicle of its kind. However, if you take a closer look, you get a glimpse of what may be in store for transportation as we know it, in the future.

For three months now Greaux, a retired LIAT radio engineer, has been experimenting with a vehicle that uses 75 per cent hydrogen as its onboard fuel for locomotive power and 25 per cent gasoline.

Greaux has converted what used to be a vehicle with a common internal 1300 cc combustion engine, (fuelled with gasoline), to run mostly on gaseous hydrogen.
