That junk has been floating around since the 70's. Same old stories, different mediums to deliver the story. If it worked it surely would have been perfected by at least one person by now.

water is a natural resource so that's not really gonna happen here in the states. do a search for hydro 400. a few tv stations tested this and claim they increased mileage in their vans. also goto kmbc.com and do a search on their site for, engineer gets 110 mpg out of 87 mustang.

Hmmmm

So it takes water turns it into Hydrogen and oxygen by your battery then your engine turns it back to water... A perpetual motion device? Not in this universe. you can only break the laws of Physics in cartoons.

Nice trick in that video Dave.

The batteries are producing hydrogen and oxygen from the water. That's what is burning. It's the same principal as the one above (in the OP). However the energy to make the hydrogen and oxygen comes from the battery. If you were to turn the burning into electrical generation you would not have enough energy to recharge the batteries. Sorry no free lunch or perpetual motion in this life.

Hydrogen will most likely be the transportable fuel for the future because it does not pollute. When you burn it, it mixes with oxygen and turns to water. However it's not free you need to make it by applying energy. That could come from a nukes or hydro plants and used as a gas in cars and trucks. The so called "crbon foot print " is minimal and the good news for us go fast guy's horsepower is just a matter of what you can afford no big pollution penalty.
