Run Your Car on Water

Did You know...
You can run your car on water?
Why isn't our government doing this...is it because they are afraid to say "NO" to these large oil companies that has a monopoly on oil, or is it because they are one of them who is getting richer from us, the consumer?

Oh Boy! Is that really TRUE. With Oil prices up using water will solve lots of problems. Is there any way to petition for a change?

That is fantastic, but the government and everyone else will drag their feet getting it going and then someone will buy his technology and he will go away rich and the public will get nothing from it. Because if there was no dependence on fuel how many wealthy people and elected officials would have their cash cows dry up?

But it would be so great for consumers and the environment, I just hope it doesn't go that way.

Actually, I live here in the Clearwater area. This story has been going around here for about 3 years now. Essentially, the part not mentioned in that news report is that he uses electrolysis to separate H2O to make the HHO - which burns a lot of energy...ergo...the reason his prototype is a hybrid - it still requires a lot of energy to split the water molecules to make the HHO gas. Electrolysis is an energy loss process. It requires more energy than what it produces. This is a bust - and that is why it hasn't gotten anywhere. He may have patented his machine - but this technology has been around forever. I recall doing something similar in my junior high school science class.

Forgot to add - if you want the most fuel efficient car that does not need gas to run - get a diesel powered car. A diesel engine was originally designed to run on vegetable oil. If you own a diesel powered car now..you could pour pure vegetable oil in it now and run it - the only problem is that when the oil gets cold - it could gunk up your fuel lines. You can purchase a converter kit for about $1000 and run on only vegetable oil that you can pick up from any restaurant. Seriously, I bet you if you ask you favorite restaurant - you'll find they already have people picking it up from them for use as fuel in their diesel powered cars. A lot of mercedes owners are doing this. Just another little secret the government doesn't want you to know about...go ahead and google it.
