Return to steam powered cars?

THE CAR THAT MAKES ITS OWN FUEL

A unique system that can produce Hydrogen inside a car using common metals such as Magnesium and Aluminum was developed by an Israeli company. The system solves all of the obstacles associated with the manufacturing, transporting and storing of hydrogen to be used in cars. When it becomes commercial in a few years time, the system will be incorporated into cars that will cost about the same as existing conventional cars to run, and will be completely emission free. More details here.
More details needed before I sign up for one. Where does the high heat come from to make the steam? What is the fuel? No prototype yet. That is when the real problems show up which were over looked in the lab.
