Why can't water be used as fuel

I want to know why you clever sciences types can't get water to work as a combustible fuel.
I have watched many a video about hydrogen separation from water, which then burns as fuel,
for pretty much any use.

Sadly all of them are fake/hoaxes

There would be no pollution and only water vapor produced as exhaust Gas.

Can any one explain to me and others that might be Interested why this is such a hard problem to crack,
as we all know water is almost pure hydrogen atoms.

As an aside we would be able to stop oil production and clean up mother earth.

The video i have included for your pleasure is a HOAX.

But it is the type of thing I can't understand why it can't be done for real.

Funny as it already has been done in China and Japan and many Asian countries.

I always thought only the hydrogen from water was combustible? Some type of conversion is always needed?

There are cars that can run off air, water, sun.. maybe dirt next? :O

Here is something i saw awhile ago from japan:

You ask why can't water be used as a fuel, because major oil companies and investors won't be making money. That's why. There are many possibilities, but oil makes more money.

I think if its not recycled somehow in the engines then it can threaten the supply. I dont think its a good idea to share energy supply with inhabitant consuming supplies. This could cause major issues again if the water isnt recycled. If its recycled then you may have a great idea...

Now static energy fuel pulled from the friction caused static from the particals interacting or touch passing each other, may be cleaner...

Water is already used as a fuel in one sense, how do you think hydroelectricity production works?

You might find this link interesting: How does the water for fuel system work?

Problem is that it takes more energy to separate the water and the hydrogen into it's distinct parts than it puts out.

We need to be able to make energy from the water directly. And I don't think anyone can do that yet.

I had a friend working with this in Cal Tech during the early 90"s. He claims it can be done. He is fervently religious and intelligent man, just slightly eccentric with his views. I run into him occasionally. See if I can contact him more about it. it has intrigued myself but never really looked into his old work.

Yes i kind of get that bit about major oil companies, but the people responsible
for making water into fuel would make money. So you would think that it would be done in spite of
opposition from oil companies.

I don't think of my self as a naive person, but would something like this be really shelved in favor of the money making status quo. I can't believe it would , but i am very likely wrong.
As i seem to be getting stupider as i get older.

H2O. 2 hydrogen molecules. Highly combustible. Would make an excellent fuel source. The byproduct would be oxygen. Big downside there.
Like Konquest said, no money to be made off of that.

Your second line is where my head is at, i want to know more about why this can't be done yet, I would love to be able to spur the clever minds into researching and finding a solution to what i think is called "Cold Fusion".
It might be called something else .. not sure.

The danger is also you can blow your self up with the wrong mixture.

I actually read about Stan a good while back, that's a conspiracy all on it's own.
I believe he done this and I believe he was killed for what he had invented.

So why aren't other following , why aren't scientist pushing the government and coming out to declare
the good news.

it all smells of G men and a cover up

Nobody's found an efficient enough way to split water molecules up yet. But it shouldn't be long before somebody actually succeeds.

the element needed for cold fusion does exist.. just not on earth.
tons of 3HE on the moon though

fusion MAKES helium so no.

also I was going to post a video of a water thruster prototype i've seen alot of times but I can't find it, youtube has removed nearly all video's relating to water tech :S ? except in the hho catagory, which is just awful..(cluttered garbage.)

my point being you CAN use water as fuel, you hit it with high voltage and boom, you have a hydrogen/oxygen combination gas, quick don't let it recombine! works better than oxyacetalyne but can rust things obviously because its waste product is water =/

seriously after 5 or so years haven't you guys figured this part out yet?

ed: one thing i'd like to point out, don't mix the water with salt, salt and water and voltage makes chlorine.

what is the Element 3HE?

some type of helium?

It does work, as i explained here
I really don't see what all the fuss is about.
How can you say 'everythings been debunked' and accept that as fact?
Travelling faster than 30mph was impossible, they said, because you would suffocate.
Thats debunking for you.
There's a lot of BS circulating right now over Stan Meyer.
If you read his entire patent, you would see why. It gets very complex.
While the science behind it is complex, the actual equipment isn't, and so this argument can easily be settled.
Build one.

You have no idea what you are talking about, so no.
3HE is useful in fusion experiments because there are no neutrons being emitted. It is also a very good fuel. Unfortunately, there is not much on the Earth.

It IS being recycled, almost 100%
Burning H and O gives----wait for it-------H2O
