The poster above gave you a good answer. You would be better off using that solar panel to delete your alternator.

2 -If an independant hydrogen generator was fitted that was high amp's ie 100/200amps could this be used as some kind of crude nitro burst?. Battery wont last long but neither would a nitro bottle.
Nitrous-Oxide (Nitro) is an injection of oxygen, not fuel, so hydrogen injection would not be similar. That said, I think interesting things could happen with H2 injection. I'm no chemist, so I have no idea what interesting things that might be.
