I have searched the internet a lot to find the answer to this question and I now Know that hydrogen can drive an internal combustion engine (a wankel rotary engine, it cannot be burnt in an ordinary engine as hydrogen has a low ignition temperature so it backfires through the intake port before it closes fully in the compression stroke wich would blow up the carburetter but can it be used in a diesel engine as the hydrogen would be injected later?) and I know that it can haet water to drive a steam engine but can you run a hydrogen engine on the steam produced directly by the burning of hydrogen, and if so, how?If it can be done , would the engine work upside down/on an angle?
