In July 2015, a video came out of a man in Brazil who drives his motorcycle up to 310 miles on one liter of water for fuel. This is the latest in reports of water being able to fuel vehicles.
Ricardo Azevedo in Sao Paulo Brazil created his “T Power H2O”. It uses water plus a single external car battery to separate hydrogen molecules. With a pipe-system, it results in combustion that powers
the bike’s internal combustion 4-stroke engine.
The true source of energy is the electricity from the battery which most likely came from a fossil fuel plant. But if the battery was charged by solar, wind or hydroelectric, then the bike is running on
According to New Zealanders Water Cars & Water Motorcycles, in New Zealand in May of 2005 Nathan Armour asked in the egaspower and watercar Yahoo Groups, “Why are you guys fooling around with hydrogen electrolysis cells for? Why not bypass that part and burn the water as soon as it hits the combustion chamber?, as I’m doing. Yes I got my 1978 Camero to run totally on water.”
No one in the group was able to duplicate his method since he used relays from a 50’s air conditioning unit, “large coils with large diodes to prevent the AC & DC from going back to the invertor and shorting it out.” He posted again in August 2005 that his son works for a power company and tested a relay. He said it was hooked up wrong to the car and should not work. But the relay was boosting amps to the plug at 6.3 amps and by a lucky mistake was running the car. Some called it a hoax but he said he was putting it on a website. View his writeup and plans. (PDF)
Several people have been found guilty of fraudulent claims for turning water into fuel. As recently as 1907, Tim Johnston took in over $100 million from mostly investors in Australia and New Zealand. His “magic pill that cut emission and made fuel last longer” was made by his company Firepower. Government and military investors were involved, but no fuel tablets were found nor assets retrieved.
In 1954, Guido Franch in Illinois was acquitted of fraud for taking money from investors in his green powder that when added to water created liquid Mota fuel. Mota is backward spelled atom. He claimed he could not disclose the formula because the oil industry would have it suppressed. A prosecution witness admitted that the mota fuel could work, but in 1979 Franch was convicted.
On the television show, “One Step Beyond”, Season 3, Episode 12: Where Are They? Original Air Date—13 December 1960: “In 1917, a stranger calling himself Charles Elton appears to government officials in Washington, D. C. and demonstrates a pill that costs 2 cents that can turn 10 gallons of water into a fuel that can power an auto engine. After his successful exhibition, the stranger vanishes. The FBI and Secret Service searched for months and could never find him.”
Reportedly, Elton approached one of Woodrow Wilson’s cabinet members the same year Wilson declared war on Germany. Under strictly government controlled conditions, Elton dropped his pellet into a tested bottle of water. The solution was poured into an engine that had never had gas in it and the engine ran until the liquid was consumed. Commander Phillips, Colonel Willis, and, from private industry, Mr. Garner asked Mr. Elton to step outside while they discussed his request for $10 million for the pill’s recipe. When they went to get him, he was gone. They were unable to locate him or find a match for his fingerprints. The pill would have made gasoline obsolete and there was rumor that the fuel industry might have hushed him up.
