I'd be REALLY skeptical ...

Something doesn't sound right. They are putting water into the tank, and something in the 'engine' is hydrolyzing the water to generate electricity?

I'm curious where they get the energy to generate the hydrogen.

The project may yet be successful at its REAL purpose: separating money from gullible investors.

Hmmm wonder *scratches chin* what is more likely

Try a search on Brown's gas
by Roger NC / June 22, 2008 1:41 PM PDT

Seen claims on water being separated into H and O for over a decade and running motors.

Some claim to suspend the free H in the liquid it's separated from so that it's entirely stable, but burns as Hydrogen gas.

IF there is anything to it, the failure of it's success already in taking over the world's motors surely indicates a giant conspiracy to bury it. Just like those carburetors the oil companies bought all the rights in the seventies and buried.

A new catalyst I guess is always a possibility, but it seems unlikely.

Notice the "energy" box that breaks the bond between H and O in the water. Without some catalytic action I've not read about, the energy needed to break the bonds to free the hydrogen could probably run the car.

Remember a discussion here once years ago? a perpetual motion car. You separate on board the vehicle water into H and O, burn the hydrogen. Your exhaust is water and you direct it back into your supply tank. Viola! don't even need to fill up with water anymore.

People have been right before when everyone said they're wrong, but for now, Brown's gas smells more like a biological produced gas to me. Indeed, not even that usable, since biological produced methane will burn if you figure out how to capture and store it.

There was a recent link from CNN or somesuch
by drpruner / June 24, 2008 6:18 AM PDT

to a video of a retired engineer running an old Honda on the H H O gas gadget. Went to 70 miles per gallon of gasoline that way. Saw it on the 'Net, so ...

I didn't search any further because I'm waiting for others to do that 'legwork', which IMO IAWOT. [is a waste of time]

Some interest on the matter...

Download Tech Musings (pdf) and read 'It's a gas'. Starts near the bottom of the second page.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
