    Using water for fuel

    Has anyone ever heard of this? I wish I had a junker sitting around that I would try it on. My car I'm driving now is too nice to risk it...

    Water Car Run on WATER+Fuel. Hydrogen Save Gas=FREE ENERGY!

    Thoughts?

    Re: Using water for fuel

    Where ya gonna get the hydrogen? It takes more energy to split the Hydrogen and Oxygen than you get by burning the hyrdogen, so this method does not really work.

    But if we move to all nuclear power, it would work much better if the electricity were free.

    From the link:

    "We have developed devices that use a little electricity out of your car's battery, to separate water into a gas called HHO (2 Hydrogen + 1 Oxygen). HHO, also called Brown's Gas or Hydroxy, burns beautifully and provides TONS of energy - while the end product is just WATER! Mobile Magazine says HHO provides the atomic power of Hydrogen, while maintaining the chemical stability of water."

    Also, I found this site linked from a "fairly" reputable source. FWIW.

    I wonder what you would do in the winter time (assuming this worked). You wouldn't want to have to hook up un-frozen water every day...

    If that really worked, these guys would be multi trillionaires, but alas, the harsh and cruel laws of physics and chemistry outwit their snake oil sales again.

    Help me out here...what is the difference between HHO and H20? I thought 2 hydrogen and 1 oxygen made water?

    While you're probably right(too good to be true I'm sure), what is wrong in your opinion with the claim(I dont understand the chemistry)?

    Or as most call it H2O. Water is only a gas after evaporation and then it is not flamable.

    It is just water.. HHO is just a way to call it water while making it sound technical.

    Good, I was hoping some chemistry gurus would chime in :)

    I am not meaning to doubt you, it just looks similar to sites that you would know are scams. It just seems comparable with the never ending scroll, lots of testimonials, etc. Here is one that you would assume is a scam and they just look the same to me!
