Has anyone else seen the run your car on water thing? This thing looks like a total scam and it makes me sad. People hocking ebooks for $50 or more promising that you’ll be able to run your car on water. Here’s the breakdown as I see it.
- True – An internal combustion engine can be run on hydrogen. In fact, you can pump it straight into the carburetor unmodified until it backfires!
- True – hydrogen can be “made” from water. We all know this. Think back to high-school chemistry.
- False – A system exists that can convert large enough amounts of hydrogen to fuel your auto that is reliable, inexpensive, and efficient. While you CAN put together a system to do it on a very small scale (like enough to fill a ping pong ball), you can’t make it in large enough quantities to drive to work!
Hope you weren’t getting too excited. The theory is sound, but it seems like the bulk of the internet would rather exploit it for cash than try and explore its possibilities.
From a quick search on “run your car on water”. FYI – I’m not arguing against any of these site specifically. They just came up first in the search.
