Water Fuel - Cars That Run on Water?

by : Adam Hefner

Gasoline prices continue to rise, and no one seems to know when they will stop. More and more people are looking for cars and other vehicles that don't use gasoline, or that increase their miles per gallon, but it's not easy to find solutions that solve all the problems. What is really needed is a system that is inexpensive, effective, and uses technology and substances that are readily available everywhere. The water-to-gas converter may be the one solution that has all of these covered.

The idea of water fuel car seems impossible. And it is. First, water-to-gas converters do not replace gasoline as a fuel source, but supplement it. Second, and more importantly, it isn't the water that is being used as fuel, it is the hydrogen in the water.

Hydrogen is rated a "clean-burning" fuel by the FDA. However, hydrogen bound to water molecules won't burn at all. To make it into a fuel, the hydrogen and water need to be separated. This process produces Brown's gas, a mixture of both oxygen and hydrogen in gaseous form. The gas is fed into the carburetor or manifold, where it is mixed with the gasoline, and then fed into the engine. The car still runs on gasoline, but the added boost given by the hydrogen provides numerous benefits.

First, gas mileage improves. Adding hydrogen to the mix means that less gas is needed, and so the gasoline lasts longer. The gains that have been reported generally range from 50% to 100%, with some individuals reporting as much as a 250% increase. The supplemental system is quite inexpensive, so it will not cut into your savings.

Second, burning regular gasoline produces many pollutants. Burning Brown's gas produces just water and oxygen. That means that the vehicle's emissions are diluted by the Brown's gas, and overall the car produces few pollutants. Too, in addition to keeping the air cleaner, the system will keep you engine cleaner by reducing the amount of dirty petroleum products moving through it.

Because cars that run on water are environmentally sound, there may be tax breaks for you at the local, state, or federal level.

In summary, you can save yourself money while feeling good about what you are doing for the environment by using a water-to-gas conversion system. For a relatively small investment, you will see years of financial returns and a real boost to your environmental karma!
