The purpose of this paper is to assess the properties (physical, chemical and combustion), safety, and storage issues related to hydrogen, so that, the public will accept hydrogen with the same degree of confidence, and in no-less terms as the fossil fuels currently in use. A wide comparison is drawn between the physical properties of hydrogen, alcohol and fossil fuels. A review of safety issues and storage is given. Sample tests on hydrogen tank leak and hydrogen tank drop tests from literature are presented.
