    Damn good news! i'll be looking for a setup like that.

    Four days price increase is now up to 18 cents a gallon. And hold on to your asses guys and gals, there's a strong and half reliable rumor that it's going to go up by as much as 12 cents a gallon in one big shot today! i swear, the industry that is in control, be it financiers or oil producers, are testing us, seeing how far we'll stretch before we break. They are in for a surprise. my research has shown me that American enginuity is alive and well and is massively waking up from a slumber. Americans are capable of great things, but it'll have to be you and I, as the commercial interests are not about to delve into the things that'll take down the record profits of the last decade. I have the utmost respect for the Scandinavian countries and especially Austrailia for leading the world in fighting the commercial self seeking and technology buy-up that US corps have fallen to. Way to go Ausies!!! If anything is going to make energy
    cost any better, it'll have to come from you and I.

    Or killed.....like Stan Meyer

    If I have any sort of breakthrough, I'm certainly not going to give it to the powers that are in charge. Filing for a pattent is just that. If you let the guv'nor into yer life, you may end up not having anything including that life you let them into.

    I swear the cheapest place to buy gas (ARCO around here) has been raising its price DAILY for a week now.

    Same here. Monday it was 3.53, friday it is 3.79. Four cents a day increase. Everywhere else, it's 12-25 cents more a gallon.

    Im so sick of the constant raising i think i'd just be happy if they just made it 5 bucks and kept it that way. tired of seeing these 10-15 cent bursts up every day. Just leave the fucken numbers alone.

    No, it's just not wise......now keeping hydrogen stored locally....hmmmm?
    That shit is more fun than gun powder:D
    BTW, I'm posting on my freebeePC. 2.4gig celery. going to use it outside to pipe videos into
    rather than record it on camcorder....just pipe it onto HDD.

    I havent quantified the output yet, but I'll update when I have.

    At this rate, I predict $5.50-75 by December...at least here in Miami.

    I was talking to my uncle, and he claims gas will be $8/gal by December, so I"m putting it here in the internet for a record :p

    whiskas, i just watched the video of the guy running a joecell on his old 360 carburated engine.. piped right into the front fuel inlet.

    is this creating hydrogen?

    how fast does the water run out?

    At the rate this particular core is 'eating water, I'd estimate 450 mile before having to top it off with water. When i design and install my system, it'll have a resevior that takes care of topping off the reaction tank. It'll also have EFIE (electronic fuel injection enhancement) and a system to self adjust the PWM (pulse width modulator). I'd like to find a good deal on a pre 1974 car or small truck. One without all the crap that complicates the hell out of a simple thing. On older rigs (carbuerated) all you really have to do is pipe the HHO straight into the low vac port on the carb, or into the airstream into the carb. On today's vehicles, there has to be a workaround for all the self adjusting shit, like oxygen sensor and MAP sensor. Without proper compensation, you'll defeat the gains of increased HP and mileage by burning gas way too rich. Reports of 70-90% better fuel economy have been documented. Then again, there was Stanly Meyer, who developed a hydrolizer
    that allowed him to run purely on HHO 100%. I'm working towards understanding and replicating his work. BTW.....he published then publicized his work after being warned to back off telling anyone........ and was murdered. :tinfoil:.

    So who is your uncle? Is he "in the know" somehow? Cause I'm here to say if gas hits $8 that fast it's going to result in / from a breakdown of civil order and we're going to have people starving and rioting.
