I was watching the old tube a few night ago and saw a commercial for a gas and water mixture. These people said it was possible to get close to 2000 miles per tank? I find thid hard to believe, cant find anything on the net about it. I am hoping someone here has info on this.


Thanks

I think i saw this commercial on monday night it might have been on sci fi channel here in dallas. I have been looking at a number of different websites and cant find the information.

I found it quite interesting and wanted to know more about it.

I drive a 2006 BMW M5, Its because its a Supercharged 5 litre, V10 engine. It does kick out a awesome 500+ HP and 500 ft/lbs of torque, which gives me a top speed (with the limiter off) of 205MPH. Shame about the fuel costs. The tank holds 18.5 Gallons. So here is the kicker here in the UK its about £5.50 a gallon, which is $10.27. So a full tank costs roughly £101.75 or $190 and i get between 222 and 333 miles off a tank.

Why did i work all that out, I'm nearly in tears now lol

Hey Guys

i appreciate everyones feedback, but i am still hunting for the information i cant seem to find.

One person posted about his BMW in europe and i feel for him. But on the otherhand the distance traveled there is far less athan the average distance in the US. Also the population in england will be much less than in the US so i understand the high gas prices.

Here we have relatively inexpensive gas because we consume so much in the US. My milage per week can range from 500-1200 that is a combination of intown and highway.

So i am trying to hunt down the MPG silver bullet i saw on th TV. Please if someone knows about this commercial it would be helpfull to everyone.


Thanks for all of the great post so far.

Shoot the station an email. If they dont answer, keep buggin them.

2000 miles per tank, eh? How big is the tank? I picture a Honda hauling a tanker.


I think I recall hearing something about a water fuel mixture before... that it was bogus. Not only does petrol and water not mix, the water doesnt mix with the oil in the engine either. Too much water in the engine will displace the oil, leading to hydrolock. That's an extreme, but just shows that engines don't like water.

Yes i thought the same about gas and water kind of like oil and water not mixing but it just seemed very interesting.

Thanks

Maybe it wasn't petroleum, but a derivative of it. You can mix water with specific compounds of hydrocarbons. But it wouldn't be any straight-chain carbon or nonpolar molecule. Because water has high polarity, it would seperate unless mixed with a secondary or tertiary alcohol type of hydrocarbon.

The fuel must have 2 alkyl group attached somehow to the chain or carbons for it to even want to mix with water.

Therefore, it is possible. But I think that this is a hoax, when you add water to a burning alcohol, it absorbs the heat because water has a high heat capacity and enough of it would keep it hot, but too much would put the flame out. But only when it burns in a cloth or something of that fasion. Maybe it runs on thermal energy? (kept in by the water)

Sounds like snake oil.

Someone is trying to make a quick buck on the fact that *everyone* wants better gas mileage. I honestly doubt such a product even works.
