I thought I would post this as some here may find this interesting concerning increasing fuel mileage in your vehicle. I have been doing research for a few months after I heard about it and I am actually going to experiment with it. Anyway, here is the link to the local news station that did a story on it, watch the feed and read about it here. http://www.winknews.com/news/top/25473064.html

Here are the PDF document here on how to do it.

I am posting this for entertainment purposes only. Charley

I would think that if this works and is less expensive in the long run that Detroit would purchase the rights for millions of $$$ and we would be able to purchase our GM Truck with it installed direct from the factory.

Call me a skeptic - yes.

Seeing this subject come up made me go back to a link that a local person told me about a water something or other that he used on hi 91' 6 cyl car.....he told me the gas savings was fantastic and i just wrote it off as bull but maybe there's something to it..... this was the two links he sent to my email address
http://www.aquatune.com/index.asp

and another link that took all the by products out of the gas:

http://www.condensator.com/

maybe someone with more knowledge than me can make some sense out of this as he was very convincing to me and actually wanted me to come and look at the setup that he put in this 91 6 cyl le baron

You mean this doesn't belong in the Jokes section? (I haven't had a chance to follow the links. I assumed, especially because of the "entertainment only" comment, that this was just a silly idea.)

This bit of unwise information has been floating around the internet for quite a while. There's some guy trying to sell a book about this useless process.
Attempting to extract hydrogen from a small container of water using your automobile electrical system is fool hardy at best. You might be able to extract enough that a spark will make a nice bang, and blow up the water container. If hydrogen were that easy to extract in useful quantities it would have been done a 100 years ago.

A thought came across to me while drinking a Manhatten.
Why not have everybody drink a lot and use Urine for fuel?

Ok I'll go to my room now..........

Eating a lot of beans might work better.

During WWII some Germans ran their cars on COAL. They took the trunk lid off and put a barrel in there, put coal in it and then built a fire under the barrel. The barrel was air tight with a really large hose run up the side of the car to the engine. The fire cooked off the gas from the coal and it worked.

I was in Germany during the 70ís Gas Crisis and the Germans prohibited any petroleum engine from being used on certain Sundays and a German got his Coal Mercedes out of the shed and a picture appeared with the story in The Stars and Stripes newspaper. He was Alone of the Autobahn.

In the 50s and 60ís they use to have a water vapor system U could purchase and put on your car from JC Whitney and it was hyped to improve MPG. GM offered a similar system that took a special fluid, on their Oldsmobile and I was told the fluid was to costly. It was connected exactly like the JC Whitney system. A glass jar with the water/fluid and a hose to the air intake and it worked like one of those middle east water pipes.

"GM offered a similar system that took a special fluid, on their Oldsmobile and I was told the fluid was to costly."

These devices were refered to as "Wynns Mystery Oil Vapor Injector". I had one on my 1952 Oldsmobile Holiday Coupe. It didn't do anything that I could tell. You can Google it if you want to know more.

I aslo had a similar device that was called a "Water Vapor Injection System" on my 1978 Chevrolet 1500 Camping Van. It didn't do anything either.

A neighbor who runs a lawn care service installed these in a couple of his vehicles, convinced it would save him a lot of fuel costs. Like others on here, it was pretty obvious to me that the small amount of hydrogen generated was not going to offset much gasoline burning. Something that didn't make any sense to me at the time....he said they recommend putting aluminum foil over the oxygen sensor. So, perhaps to be able to humor him or explain how he was likely to be disappointed, I started searching the internet. No, really, I was just curious. I found all the adds, the long history of these devices, descriptions of lawsuits, etc. I ended up on Wikipedia, which if I recall correctly, is where it all started to make sense. These things seem to help engines run with leaner gasoline air mixtures at idle and low speeds, like city driving. In cars so equipped, they cover the oxygen sensor with foil to make it run hotter, which apparently results in the injection computer calling for a leaner mixture. The hydrogen/oxygen mixture that comes from the jar from the electrolysis process (driven by the 12V car system) aides in combustion of the leaner gasoline air mixture, thus saving some gasoline. How much, I have no idea. The Wikipedia authors were cautiously supportive of the idea, saying the hydrogen/oxygen mixture results in acceptable exhaust products, doesn't hurt anything, and may have some benefit. So, I'm looking for my neighbor to see how he's doing by now.
