    That's just amazing! This better be the next big thing. Unless, of course, something better comes out.

    Holy shit. That is fuckin awesome. Now all they need to do is keep those greedy oil tycoon motherfuckers away from it and this could be a very good thing.

    As long as the auto manufacturer's push it, and that guy remains a strong owner of it, it could be done despite oil lobby attempts otherwise I think.


    Water is something people need, that cant be denied. And given that water is the exhaust of it, it's not even wastefull.

    If this ever gets off the ground thats easily the man of the century right there :p

    We're running out of easy water though. Like 3 % of the water we can use is what we have. The rest is salt water and its costly to convert to usuable water. This would add another burden. Its still impressive though.

    Yes, but as it is. 4oz = 100miles or so he says.



    Isnt that something like 3000mpg give or take?

    If one gallon of water is about 2.5 months worth of gas for the average joe. Well then, thats something.

    But yes. Water prices will skyrocket and I think eventually we'll end up in the same boat.

    We'll all be long dead though, so who cares, great grandchildrens problem, anyone?

    "Well i guess we'll just hop the water prices don't go up like the gas prices won't we Bill?"

    "Yes that's right Mary" ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    I love witty news anchors lol.


    That's exciting but i'll miss my fuel injection.
  8. It's just electrolysis. It's the simplest way to get hydrogen, you send electricity through water, bam you get oxygen and hydrogen.

    Also, it looks like he's using it in an internal combustion engine, the standard, even though hydrogen fuel cells are more efficient.

    why does the flame not burn your hand... but anything else? that's bullshit.

    and, I don't think something that falls from the sky will suddenly be more expensive either.

    I mean, I know there is a finite amount of water. but... liek I said. It fucking falls from the sky.

    Yes, but its a new electrolysis system, where we dont need 10,000+ psi of a highly explosive gas traveling with us at 70mph.

    You still need electricity for their unique patented electrolysis to produce the HHO gas. All we need right now is a sh!tload of nuclear power plants :D.

    I hate it when they make it sound like water is the energy source, and mention electricity "by the way" and in brief, the water is only used as a method of transporting that energy. IMO, these mirracle sources of energy which do not clearly explain their process only lead to a lot of disillusionment and disappointment later on when the whole picture becomes clear.

    Nuclear Power Plants in any large quantity are really unlikely.


    What we actually really need, is better battery technology.


    And like i said earlier, having the source transported as water is a huge step. This technology has been around since the '70's, but its being refined heavily lately.

    If it coulb be adapted to use 'piss' then it'd really be something. I can see it now, building homes with male and female urinals piped directly to the garage. Waste water becomes the 'new' global currency.
    America looses it's foothold on the global economy because there are more people full of shit rather than just plain pissed.

    What the fuck is HHO gas. Chemically speaking, that makes no sense.

    Edit: Whatever it is tho, if it works as advertised, that's really awesome.

    I think its that the tip of the welder doesn't get hot, because the flame would shurley burn the shite out of your hand

  19. I didn't watch the whole video, but, he claims to have invented some new form of electrolysis, and a gas engine that runs on hydrogen. You would still need to keep the hydrogen in tanks at a ridiculous compression for his car.

    We have better battery technology, their called fuel cells, and not the ones that race cars use(those are just fancy gas tanks). A fuel cell electric has way better mileage than an internal combustion hydrogen engine ever will.

    This guy is just claiming to have invented something that's been around for quite a while.

    Hmm, i can see that. Im really skeptical of everything in alternate fuel research at this point. I was watching Maher the other night and he was talking about how since theres so many corn lobbyists, corn ethanol is being pushed big time now, despite that sugar ethonal (brazil is using it now) is a much more effective source, something like 80% more efficiant.

    Whose to say they need fresh water to do this. Maybe they could rig up a system or myabe even the way it is now they could use Salt Water. It's not like we are gonna run outta that anytime soon.

    Especially with the arctic defrosting. It's totally perfect timing! It's like God said "here guys, have some extra water". Good ole God.
  23. I thought it was something like 8 times more effecient(800%)?

    it seems that in the tests they did, they didn't run the car on just the HHO they ran it on both and it got like 30MPG before and 60MPG with the HHO

    i wish i had more journalistic skills. then i'd have more to contribute.

    i'm interested to find out more about sugar ethanol versus corn ethanol.

    but, I could see the findings being biased one way or another depending on the source.
