And Petrol does not just burn, it can explode. That is far more dangerous than a battery fire.

H2 is a dead duck and has been for years. How much CO2 and Methane is given off making it in the sort of quantites that would be needed to power an entire fleet. Most H2 used these days comes from Oil and Gas so naturally the big Oil companies would love it to be the fuel of choice.

How does lugging a highly pressurised container of H2 around with you compare to a Lithium battery?

Those containers really do go boom in a big way.
