I have a relative who swears his 63 Beetle is getting double the mileage or some garbage, and keeps insisting I give him the funds to build one and install it in my vehicle.

As far as electric, aren't the batteries kind of an issue to deal with when they expire?
I have been told why hydrogen isn't viable before, but I kind of wonder if things ever change to the point where something that was impossible before, might become a reality.

Following the particle codes for this universe
Is it possible to extract or remove electrons
from atoms to compress matter to travel through
and then return the extracted electrons to the matter
in order to return the coded region back to its original form
So you would emit a laser or wave or rings flow of electron displacement material that would compress basically space. Then somehow travel through the compressed space. And once travel is completed re expand "space"

Mechanical efficiency is lower, which isn't good. But aside from the efficiency effects of the frictional losses, what are the mechanical/maintenance costs? The lack of information answering this question is staggering considering the number of people promoting this idea who seem to have not even thought about asking the question, though you can occasionally find a guy who ran a hydrogen conversion who tells you how great it ran until his engine died (which for all I know could have been a premature death).
Fig 11 Comparison B/W Mechanical Efficiency (ηm) In Gasoline & Brown Gas at Different Load Conditions
Graph Interpretation: For the same engine running at constant speed the mechanical efficiency obtained from the blending mixture of brown gas and petro is less in comparison to that of pure petrol. This decrease in mechanical efficiency is probably because of the increase in frictional losses due to the large amount of heat produced by the combustion of mixture of brown gas and petrol.

good enough an answer for me.
but bedlam you still haven't answers the important questions yet.
evanecent one of the most appropriate band names ever?
elastic or inelastic collisions which ones look cooler in slow mo in your opinion?
also surface of sun. example of Raleigh Taylor effect? or just some churning magnetic fields that make the suns surface look cool like its boiling.

So I changed tack, and got the old lady to either add or not add acetone to each tank, randomly, and give me a code number for that tank's fuel consumption. She kept track if that code # was acetone or no, and I kept track of the fuel consumption.
These magnetic fields aren't strong enough to levitate a human. They are about 2 Teslas, and the field that levitates the frog is 16 Teslas, but it would take even more to levitate a human because I think frogs have higher percentage water content. Even these much weaker fields can cause "neck pain, headache and twitching in the scalp or upper face", and even metabolism side effects, so do you really think it would be safe to subject humans to much stronger magnetic fields? I don't think the frog ever answered any questions about how it felt while being levitated.
It is difficult to establish a convincing form of "sham" TMS to test for placebo effects during controlled trials in conscious individuals, due to the neck pain, headache and twitching in the scalp or upper face associated with the intervention. "Sham" TMS manipulations can affect cerebral glucose metabolism and MEPs, which may confound results.
