14:7 stoichiometric for gasoline engines is by mass, not volume. If going by volume, it is around 10000:1. Stoichiometric for hydrogen is 34.3:1 by mass, 2.39:1 by volume.

Making an engine run on hydrogen is relatively easy. It has been done many times. Running an engine on hydrogen produced by an alternator is mathematically impossible. Period. If it was possible, I would be installing windmills on my electric car as a range extender.
