    I sure hope that one of the following does not happen.

    1. BP buys the patent and buries it.
    2. This guy ends up in a dumpster somewhere.

    Everyone should spread the word on this tech before it disappears.

    This tech will never come to anything more then what you just saw. It may become for welding but nothing that requires water will power our cars.

    Our first step is to move to ethanol or some form of bio energy source. Corn has been top in the running but the biggest issue with it is the amount of water required to create the fuel. Water is much more of an issue then gas is right now it just does not cost as much so regular (non science community) people do not think of it as a major concern.

    he went 100 miles on four ounces though. think about how long a 14 gallon tank would last.

    and we should ethanol from sugar, it's much more powerful and potent. but that doesnt matter in this country, what matters is who is getting paid.

    yeah I heard him say that but he also said he was running a fuel hybrid so I think that number was squed a bit. Unless he was rolling down hill the number do not add up. 4 oz of water over 100 miles in a combustion engine just does not add up if that was the only fuel source.

    Brazil (or one of the larger South American countries anyways) has completely weaned themselves off of gasoline as the only option. There fleet is ethanol driven and every fuel station has ethanol as an option. The #1 and #2 cars that sell down there are Ford and Chevy and they also lead the industry in non gas powered cars. The process cost ALLOT of money to setup the infrastructure but it was subsidized by the government and translated into a tax but the cost is so much less that they are looking at $1.50 a gallon. Now ethanol does not get the mileage that gasoline gets but it is a cleaner source of fuel and it is naturally replace in a crop not over millions of years (like oil). The US pays farmers to keep land unfarmed. If we instead pushed corn production and used is as a fuel source the price of gas would drop dramatically. It would crush OPEC if the US could say in 5 years thanks for the oil but we really don't need it anymore (yes that is not realistic and we use oil for allot of other things but imagine if that oil was only used industrially?)

    If the US was not depended on other countries for a source of fuel the economics of the entire would change.

    Sugar would be great but it is hard to produce. If you are talking in the chemical sense of the word sugar it is easier to produce but not 1/2 as easy as growing huge fields of corn. Milling it up and making it to fuel.
