This is the guy that is making these claims. I have been watching him since about Sept of last year!

SAE Energy

I do not believe he is too far off the mark actually!

I read about him in Fast Company Magazine and article called Motorhead Messiah

That is a REAL good read ....

Happy Reading ....

Bob~!

i'm exprimenting with something i think is similar. i'm making a few on demand hydrogen cells and i'm going to install them in my 96 f 250 powerstroke and see how much better mpg i get. i'm thinking about 4-6 mpg more for every two cells and i can install 4 of them in my truck so thats at least 16 more mpg . i'm going to install it thru the air intake and the suction will suck the hydrogen in hopefully creating a more combustable air witch will mean less fuel needed to be burned. i'll let yall kno how it turns out.

I think its funny they call it green, because that truck will burn mass quantities of hydrogen , which requires mass quantities of power to produce, another "green" sham.... I'm surprised they don't have Al Gores face plastered all over it.

Al Gore wouldn't want to be seen with a big ugly truck. No, he is too busy getting rammed up the woohoo by a toyota p***s's tailpipe

Saw this in a diesel enthusiast mag. Nice but I wouldn't want to lose the use of my bed. That's why I bought a truck in the first place.

if you run 100% hydrogen the air coming out of the tailpipe is actually cleaner than the air going in. it is very possible he is right. im in the process of this now.
