YouTuber Drives Hyundai Santro on Water
At the beginning of the video, the YouTuber disconnects all the wires and cables responsible for transporting fuel from the tank to the engine. He shows the car not being able to ignite due to no fuel supply. Furthermore, he squeezes out the entire fuel from the tank using a motor. In this way, the viewers are able to know that there is no way the car can use fuel to start now. Thereafter, the YouTuber brings large water canisters and some syringes.

He takes some stones (which are actually Calcium Carbide stones) and puts them in a bottle which has a little water in it. The chemical reaction between Calcium Carbide and Water results in the formation of Acetylene gas. Acetylene is flammable and powerful gas. Using the energy of this gas, the YouTuber tries to drive the car. He puts the syringes inside the intake manifold of the engine to supply Acetylene. As the team adds more and more stones inside the water canister, more gas is produced.

Good Merely for an Experiment
What is mighty impressive is the fact that they are able to not only switch ON the car but also drive it for around 100 m. This is a very raw and impromptu experiment that caused the Santro to be driven around using just this gas. However, if done at a large scale under proper testing conditions, it might not be a feasible source of energy. What are your thoughts on this?
