Purdue University -
New process generates hydrogen from aluminum alloy to run engines, and fuel cells

Hydrogen is generated spontaneously when water is added to pellets of the alloy, which is made of aluminum and a metal called gallium. The researchers have shown how hydrogen is produced when water is added to a small tank containing the pellets. Hydrogen produced in such a system could be fed directly to an engine, such as those on lawn mowers.

Dunno how they could do that unless they fence off the shorelines. I live a few hundred metres from the Pacific Ocean, I'll grab my own water and fill my own tanks, thank you very much.

Yes, it is called electrolysis .However, the energy you put in that water is greater than the energy you would get out of the H2 and O2.The only possible way to obtain more "out" than "in" is to find a "magical" frequency that would create resonance at molecular level. I am not sure that the Japanese car is based on molecular resonance or simply what you described and known as electrolysis . In this case you are better off connecting the battery pack with the electrical engine and forget about the water-hydrogen conversion.
I guess we will need more time to really see what the Japaneses made..


Thats exactly right. The energy you get from burning the electrolysed gases is the same as it takes to electroyse them.

For those that think you get more energy out that you put in, then with that logic, you could just have a limitless supply of energy by just running that energy into more water, and then into more water, etc etc.

Basically, rather than some convoluted system of having a large onboard battery to electrolyse water, and then a water tank, and then an engine, like the guy said, you are better off just hooking that battery up to motors.

Interesting that this should come about at the same time as this:




Exxon Mobil Corp said on Thursday it is getting out of the retail gas business in the United States as sky-high crude oil prices squeeze margins.

I just hope it's because of the water car and not because of ethanol.

Edit to add: There are plans for sale online for a water electrolysis system, some of which have somewhat ambiguous explanations, if you research the information, you may find some clue as to how this is done. I am pretty sure it would be a similar process.

This provides another great use for greywater runoff and btw the average adult makes 2 litres of fuel every day just standing at the pissoir

False lead great follow up!


Congrats

I have bad news for everyone here. This will never hit the showrooms and I mean never. They have had this technology for awhile now and it will never hit the showrooms because there is no money to be made for the big oil companies. Sorry it sucks but its the truth.

We think this is such a great idea because water is relatively cheap right now, but when we start using it to power our cars and who knows what else(you don't think it will stop with cars do you?) water is going to become one of the major expenses in our daily lives. The powers that be will make money off of this and they will decide how much.
Imagine the prices of the world's water supplies being artificially manipulated to suit the whims of the 'Real Government', something that people need for their very survival.

lol I'm sure they will make something up about it not being able to run on salt water.

This is Pandora's box being opened. The cat is out of the bag and if they develop this over there and the ptb try and keep it from America dont you think the people will rise and demand it? We wont just sit here while the Japanese drive for next to nothing?

Alsop to those that think this will raise the price of water? What are they going to do cap off everyones wells in the countryside?

If this is true it cant be stopped.

The world can do without oil but it CANNOT do without water!



Uhm... did you even read the post?



It runs on Sea water, not just drinking water. The world has a shortage of *DRINKING WATER* not SEA WATER!

Please read the post and use thy noggin before posting again.

As I mentioned before, this car can use sea water. It's better than cheap... ITS FREE!!!! And there is TONS of it!

I guess when you are psychotic, everything looks like a conspiracy eh?

Actually you are wrong.

Here is the Evidence: This guy's company is in the USA and about to go mass production with the water car he created.





I really wish the people who posted on this board used their heads before posting.

The problem is using anything useful will cause problems.

Water, hydrogen or air; we need all of them.

Thats where the Helium car comes in, who needs balloons that
waste Helium.

Check the HHO car, it uses the Tesla coil or ether blaster, as I like
to call it now, in the ignition. That will run the car on anything.

ED: Including Helium.. but you recycle it.

Where are you getting the information that this is about to be mass produced?

Where did you learn that his car is using a Tesla Coil?

I'd really like to see where you are getting this information; It is very interesting.

I would like to know more, but I know better than to just take your word for it. Can you please produce something to back up the claims you are making?

You are not claiming this video is evidence of these claims are you? I didn't gather any of that from this video. "Mass produced" and "in development" for military applications are not even close to the same thing.

If you use salt in the water a byproduct with the hydrogen is poison chlorine gas. If you just use distilled water with a high base catalist like lye the byproducts are safe.
