Has anyone ever seen this before? I was surfing through the net and came across this AD. Seems like a hoax to me but I wasn't sure if anyone else has come across this.

Searched for this and didn't find it in any threads. Sorry if Re-Post.

:hmmm: This maybe a little more real than I thought, thanks for the video fishpicker!

Alas, poor Stanley was killed by Big Oil while eating a hamburger, so we'll never know.

All I can hope is that whoever actually perfects an alternate fueled car has better web design skills than these folks.

Did you see the ad at the bottom?

"Protect yourself from rip-offs! Send $5 to..."

I'm going to send in $10 so that I'm doubly protected.

Mythbusters already debunked this, hydrogen didn't work at all because the contraption didn't produce enough of it. They hooked pure hydrogen into the engine and it worked for a short time before starting everything on fire.

Be my guest, I hope it works out for you.

When you burn something you are oxidizing it that is adding atmospheric oxygen to the reduced material. Carbon or Hydrogen gets turned into CO 2 or H 2 O plus energy to drive machinery. If you take water and break it down into its component of Hydrogen and Oxygen that takes energy (reduction). The actual amount of energy to disassociate water (reduce water to Hydrogen) can not be less than the amount of energy to oxidize Hydrogen to water. Violates energy conservation. Plants use sunlight to drive this process. There has to be a secondary energy source to do this. Sunlight, gasoline, etc.

This is evident by the uninformed statement involving breaking water down to component and using the hydrogen in fuel cell.

The B-52 bombers have a water injection system to increase thrust on takeoff. I don't know how it works.

I use water/Meth injection on my Mustang to cool the intake charge.

Does Steam count?http://www.carsforum.co.il/misc/forum/cars_top10/stanley_steam_car.jpg

The P-47s or P-51s had an emergency water injection system that dramatically boosted power in the short term, if I remember right. It was only to be used in a life-or-death emergency because it damaged the engine.

It reduces the temperature of the combustion chamber(s), which increases compression ratio = more power.

War Emergency Power. The last P-51 had WEP that would boost the horsepower almost from 1400 to 2300, or something crazy. None of them saw combat in WWII, IIRC.

No, as water isn't really the "fuel" in a steam engine. It's usually coal or propane.

Speaking of you and WWII planes am I still sitting on a tarmac somewhere waiting to be shotdown over Belgium?
