HHO vehicle may be the answer...

While his unique electrolysis process – working simply with water and electricity – was originally designed to work in welding factories as a replacement for acetylene torches, a whole new application has come to light from Denny Klein, who recently filed a patent on his solution. He has converted his 1994 Ford Escort to run either as a water-gas hybrid, or on water alone.

While the tip of the welder is cool to the touch, the water-powered torch can burn through charcoal and get tungsten to "light up like a sparkler." But when it comes to powering a vehicle, this prototype could drive for 100 miles on only four ounces of water. Technically, the car isn't running on water, because the H20 is converted to HHO gas. This is said to provide the "atomic power of hydrogen", while maintaining the "chemical stability of water."

He has already attracted the attention of an unnamed American automaker, and Klein has been invited to the Washington to demonstrate his technology, with word that he is now working on a water-gasoline hybrid Hummer for US military.

The sticking point is converting H2O HHO, a process that so far seems to require more energy than is derived from the HHO itself, but it's definitely a development that bears monitoring. Some doubt that HHO even exists, but there seems to be some merit to Denny Klein's claim, and he is being courted by at least one auto manufacturer, and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Hi MM,

Nice work. In addition....

Grady had a nice write up about it, 'bout a year on ATSNN.

That would be the ATSNN article I referenced in my original post.

Sorry MM,

Partial brain malfunction I guess.

I think the laws of conservation of energy kick in. It can't be "atomic power of hydrogen", more like the molecular power of the oxidation of the hydrogen molecule (burning of hydrogen). I thought I read that it is impossible to get more energy out of the hydrogen and oxygen byproduct than it takes to separate them from each other in h2o. The h2o bond is very strong and takes a lot of energy to break.

I think an angle of approach (from an internal combustion based system) is to attempt to capture all the energy lost in the form of heat and somehow translate that to mechanical energy. If you can find a way to efficiently do that, you'd be a rich man.
