Re: Snake oil....

Um, I'm pretty sure your average IC motor ain't designed for that. Wouldn't the H draw moisture into the fuel?

Now squirting propane into a diesel, that's a whole 'nother game.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Snake oil....

Check the energy required to split water into Hydrogen and Oxygen and then check the energy required to combine the back to water, oops you consume energy. Another perpetual motion claim cloaked in science.

Yep... huge energy deficit in trying to split water. (unless you're using nukes, right Bake?) So guess where we get our pure, refined Hydrogen? From hydrocarbons ie fossil fuels. Chasing our tail here huh.

Re: Snake oil....

I like how it tells us how awesome it is, but never really says what it does.
It could be a fancied-up water injection system for all we know.

Wow, looks pretty impressive. Now just combine this device with cryo-tempering and a leafblower and that's like, a bajillion miles per gallon. I am calling to place a deposit right now.

I thought the leafblower trick had more to do with removing the air filter.
