Water As Fuel For Your Car

Jul 25, 2008
Recently the internet has been raving with topics about converting car to run on water as fuel supplementing the gasoline consumption.

This is highly attributed to the fact of soaring oil prices and global environmental issues.

It is pressing for common individuals relying on car transportation to make a living and many small business owners that are crying out to sustain their businesses are affected by rising oil prices. This has caused the spendings of goods to increase as well.

So, car owners are seeking ways to lower their fuel expenses and the reduction of burning gasoline will in turn help to minimise global warming significantly.

It has been circulated on the internet that a guy named Daniel Dingel (an engineer) from the Philippines has developed a car that uses plain tap water and/or sea water for fuel and seems to be using this technology for over 30 years.

Another source from Genepax Co Ltd revealed that their new fuel cell system generates electricity with only water and air without emitting carbon dioxide. Now, this is free energy!

A simple explanation of how the system generates power is similar to that of a normal fuel cell, which uses hydrogen as a fuel. According to Genepax, the main feature of the fuel system uses the company's Membrane Electrode Assembly (MEA), which contains a special material capable of breaking down water into hydrogen and oxygen through a chemical reaction. Although this process has similarities to the mechanism that produces hydrogen by a reaction of metal hydride and water, as compared to the existing method, the new process is likely to produce hydrogen from water for longer period of time.

As this technology is evidently available, most cars at present are still running on gasoline and these eco-friendly cars would probably take several years to appear in the commercial market and several more years for the price of the car to go down.

This growing interest of converting existing cars to run on water is now in great demand but cost is a problem. Standalone conversion kits can be rather pricey costing for as much as $500. It can even cost thousands to do the conversion.

An economical approach would be to convert existing cars to supplement gasoline with water to run the vehicle.

Fortuntately, for the past few months there are numerous websites providing such Do-It-Yourself guides using low cost materials, and requiring little or no tehnical knowledge to carry out the task.

Some of these websites reported that the cost of material is under $100, the technology is readily available and can be installed within few hours even for car "novices". The fuel efficiency is proven to perform up to 40% and as much as 60%! Considering the material cost alone, the investment can be recouped very quickly.

The public in general remains sceptical and uncertain of the possibility of this technology. Perhaps most people are so used to machines running on gasoline right from the beginning. This would probably take a while before this shift of paradigm is made known and accepted by everyone all over the world.
