Nope. Specious and non sequitur. It is not a closed system.

Interestingly (IIRC, I may be able to dig up the article) in the 1970's NASA took and old station wagon and basically hooked a cat cracking unit to the intake. Passed the vaporized gas over hot rocks reducing the long chains to short and increasing the amount of H2. They proved their point (pollution control I think). This way you can have gasoline and make H2 at the same time.
