Water-Powered Car Demonstrated

While the car runs on a mixture of 50% water and 50% gasoline, its inventor also demonstrated it can run on water alone, rekindling hopes for Stan Meyer's HHO technology.

Denny Klein, an inventor from Florida, has introduced the world’s first water powered car. His own 1994 Ford Escort, labeled “Hydrogen Technology”, can run on a combination of water and gasoline, and Klein says it is possible to develop a system powered purely by water. The prototype is a hybrid car, shown to drive 100 miles using 4 ounces of water, without losing power. "You just drive it like a regular car. The infrastructure is already in place to get it serviced so we don't have to reinvent the wheel," Klein said.

Klein’s “Aquygen” is water or H2O broken down and turned into HHO gas – a process that scientists previously considered impossible to implement. A small device was demonstrated to emit a flame hotter than the surface of the Sun; A flame so intense it can burn a hole through charcoal and turn a brass ball to glowing liquid metal within seconds. While steel, lead, and other metals slice on contact, the tip of the welder remains only slightly warm to touch. Klein says that people don’t believe him, even though it’s a natural electrolysis process. It requires a greater amount of water than the amount of HHO gas produced, but the resulting gas combines the atomic power of hydrogen and the chemical stability of water. “No other gas will do this” –he says.

Klein and his colleagues are planning to provide a cheap, eco-friendly and practical alternative fuel, which will end the world’s dependence on fossil fuels. An engine that runs on a gasoline-water mix burns 50-percent less gasoline. "The way the water molecule is restructured, it releases a tremendous amount of energy when mixed with a catalyst. The Aquygen can easily be turned back into H2O” - said Klein as he pointed at drops of water running off a sheet of metal. A representative from Klein’s company said that the fuel production cost is estimated at around 70 cents per hour, with 1,500 liters of Aquygen produced in an hour.
