One of the equipment to replace engines, have been developed since the last decade of 20th century, give a lot of advantages called fuel cell, which can produce energy by electric-chemically process. Due to the differences of fuel cell compare with conventional engine, vehicles using fuel cell has to be redesign, some components have to be changed radically, like the fuel system, drive train and control system. The result of researches and developments which have been done, promise a lot of advantages, which conventional engines can not give, therefore it is probable that fuel cell will replace conventional engine.
