초록

Engine exhaust is sent to a reformer, which produces hydrogen from fuel remaining in the exhaust. The hydrogen may be stored in a hydrogen tank, and may be used by a fuel cell to produce electricity to recharge a vehicle battery and/or to supply propulsion current to an electric propulsion system.

청구항

1. A method for enhancing fuel utilization in an internal combustion engine, comprising: generating exhaust gases from combustion in the engine;coupling the exhaust gases from the engine to a reformer configured to produce hydrogen from the exhaust gases;transferring the hydrogen to a hydrogen storage tank; andtransferring, through a channel configured to return exhaust from the reformer, exhaust that remains after being stripped of hydrogen in the reformer to the engine for further combustion. 2. The method of claim 1, further comprising applying at lea...
