Yes, you can run your car on water. All it takes is to build a "water-burning hybrid" is the installation of a simple, often home-made electrolysis cell under the hood of your vehicle. The key is to take electricity from the car's electrical system to electrolyze water into a gaseous mixture of hydrogen and oxygen, often referred to as Brown's Gas or HHO or oxyhydrogen. Typically, the mixture is in a ratio of 2:1 hydrogen atoms to oxygen atoms. This is then immediately piped into the intake manifold to replace some of the expensive gasoline you've been paying through the nose for these last couple of months. These simple "kits" will increase your fuel economy and decrease your bills and dependence on foreign petroleum by anywhere from 15 to 300 percent.
There's even a Japanese company, Genepax, showing off a prototype that runs on nothing but water. (NOT SURPRISING CONSIDERING JETS DO!) On June 13 Reuters published a report on the prototype, complete with a now much-blogged-about video even showing an innocuous gray box in the Genepax vehicle'strunk supplying all the power to drive the car. All you have to do is add an occasional bottle of Evian (or tea, or whatever aqueous fluid is handy), then drive all over without ever needing gasoline.
(oh yeah, but the energy thing, well its been addressed quite sufficiently I believe) Problem: It takes exactly the same amount of energy to pry those hydrogen and oxygen atoms apart inside the electrolysis cell as you get back when they recombine inside the fuel cell. The laws of thermodynamics haven't changed, in spite of any hype you read on some blog or news aggregator. Subtract the losses to heat in the engine and alternator and electrolysis cell, and you're losing energy, not gaining it--period.

I could train a baboon to make hydrogen at home. But that doesn't negate that fact that the gas is currently of little to no value to your basic homeowner.

@xmicina you get more energy than you get out, but that extra energy comes from the water itself. not just magic

Unfortunately, it is a fail as far as powering a vehicle is concerned.

The worse kind of skepticism. Hydrogen can't run cars, or boost fuel consumption. Nor bikes no matter how many times its been done! I am not interested in boosting fuel consumption, running cars compeletely YES! Trust me on that. I want no oil industry.
Hydrogen cant run bikes, or tools or heat houses.
For all the consumer use, it doesnt work.
Oh, but it runs jets. Yup, that it does.
Well it works, as demonstrated. Expert village and GREENPOWERSCIENCE are rock solid.
And all these other innovators, havn't been toying in pseudo science either.
The gate keepers can back off and sit down in the corner, and meditate on joining the human race IMO!edit on 20-7-2011 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
