Big Names Interested in Water Powered Car

Inventor Denny Klein Click image to enlarge

By Eric Flack
(LOUISVILLE) -- Whether you're trying to catch a fish or maybe just swimming with them, life can be pretty laid back along Florida's gulf coast. That is until you step into the offices of Hydrogen Technology Applications in Clearwater.
People just can't stop talking about Denny Klein's water powered car. The first of its kind.
Project manager Stephen Lusko says, "It's been totally out of control. Thousands of calls and emails. I get 200 emails every hour. They want to partner with us, they want to sell our product, they want to invest in us."
It runs on what is called Aquygen, which is water, or H20, broken down into HHO gas. Klein's prototype, a modified Ford Escort, is a hybrid that uses regular gas infused with Aquygen when the driver throws the switch.
In trials, Aquygen improved gas mileage by as much as 50 percent. That's almost 200 extra miles per tank of gasoline. Klein says an adapter for your car could be on the market sooner than you think. "My guess is probably 2 years to go to the next level," Klein told us.
He says a totally Aquygen powered car in a little further down the road.
The Aquygen car isn't the only thing they are working on. In fact, out of this Florida garage they are doing things with water you won't believe.
They've got a prototype Aquygen only lawn mower and Aquygen machines are already being sold to power blowtorches.
Klein says Aquygen's lack of pollutants is on of its most important qualities and some big names are taking notice. Denny said, "NASA, Daimler Chrysler, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin."
But thanks to those sky high gas prices, Klein's car has grabbed the spotlight and thrown them into it. "Timing is everything and I think our timing is better now than ever," Klein said.
That's got his team believing they may be on the verge of history

If you are referring to the link I posted the answer is... not much. It was just to show that the process is simple. We did this back when I was in high school chemistry class. The teacher let it run long enough to fill a graduated cyclinder with hydrogen then stuck a match to it..it went POOMB!...the girls screeched and jumped out of their chairs and the guys went COOL!! I guess they don't do this kind of thing in school anymore out of fear that the kids might blow themselves up or maybe there isn't enough time between "Diversity Studies" and calculating their carbon footprint.

Hydrogen is a great fuel from a clean energy standpoint since the by-product of combustion is water. Producing it from water would be ideal since 2/3 of the planet is covered by it. But the process requires energy either... chemical or electrical... and you have to get more energy out than you put in for it to be meaningful. I'm sure they guys in the situations posted have come up with some nifty ways of producing hydrogen from water but I would bet that none of them have overcome the thermodynamics of more out than in and hence the reason they have dropped off the map.
