A mechanic in Madhya Pradesh has invented a car that runs on water and carbide fuel. Raees Markani spent over six months at his workshop to come up with an eco-friendly car that runs on a fuel as cheap as 10 to 20 rupees per litre. The car runs on acetylene gas, which is formed from a chemical reaction between calcium carbide and water. The gas is used for several industrial purposes including welding. Markani said that the invention would come as a major relief to Indians who spend around 70 rupees a litre on petrol.
