Newberg, Oregon man dreams, then creates hydrogen power

March 26, 2009View for printing

The first time, the flames from the lawn mower were large enough to alarm the neighbors.

Trying to get a hydrogen-powered mowing business off the ground, Abe Fouhy and a small band of hydrogen experimentalists were "just dumping fuel in there," Fouhy remembers.

Over time, Fouhy and friends learned to ratchet back the hydrogen and get two hours of mowing time. They even used the energy to cook eggs on top of the exhaust pipe.

Now, Fouhy's garage at his Newberg home is a repository of hydrogen-powered devices, dismantled and intact, waiting to convince the next visitor of hydrogen's potential. There's the fuel cell the size of a playing card. The lawn mower. The hydrogen tanks and, of course, his dual-fuel car.
