A car that saves fuel by turning water into hydrogen.

To me it looks like complete bullshit. The energy of hydrogen is useful when burned in the presence of oxygen (like any other fuel). Fire is nothing more than rapid oxidation of a heat-releasing substance, with the final product composed of the atoms of the burned material + oxygen atoms in one combination or another. In the case of hydrogen, the product is biodegradable oxygen - or plain language, water.

In short, the connection of hydrogen and oxygen gives water + energy. According to the laws of thermodynamics, in order to break down water into oxygen and hydrogen, we must invest at least the same amount of energy ... In other words, this process mentioned in the article can not contribute in any way to the vehicle. In fact, it is likely that he will only waste power.

The subject arises from time to time.

This system may be effective if it works like a hybrid engine - the hydrogen produced is stored as a hybrid gasoline-electric car accumulates energy in the battery.

Because the nature of the driving is usually uneven (usually in urban driving), such a mechanism allows the engine to operate more efficiently most of the travel time and save fuel.

At the same time, the efficient way to utilize hydrogen is through a fuel cell rather than by burning an internal combustion engine (which may also damage this process).

but --

This system does not store the hydrogen, what comes out of the pipe goes straight to the engine.

In fact, the engine produces electricity (inefficiently) that is used to break down water into hydrogen and oxygen, when the hydrogen is injected back into the cylinders to burn there to produce more power (inefficiently).

This process purports to save 40%.

Very stange.

To invest energy in energy production, one must carefully examine the amount of energy invested in relation to the amount of energy obtained.

It's a bit hard for me to see an engine that produces energy to run itself plus drive the vehicle.

On this specific issue, I think that in the right direction, it is a "combination" of technologies.

Yes, I know,

I think the guy says instead of turning on an electric motor and storing the energy in the batteries - which also weighs on the car and also "rises" in the waste of energy to produce them, it is better for him To use the energy immediately, ie, to decompose water into available and immediate energy injected into the engine and thus save its storage of batteries). If we use the energy to move forward and overcome the air resistance and bearings, we can improve the energy waste, I imagine at least up to 40.

The mechanism is not able to store energy, it is different from the hybrid system, whose advantage lies in its ability to allow the internal combustion engine to work at high efficiency most of the time and even extinguish it sometimes and use braking to produce energy.

In addition, a regular alternator of a regular gasoline car produces at most a 60 amp (12V) - and does it with horrifying efficiency (hybrids are usually equipped with larger, more efficient generators) - ie 720 watts - less than one kW.

The kit may have a larger alternator, but even the larger alternators provide at most 150A (which is 1800 Watt - less than 2.5 hp), and again the efficiency of these alternators is 60 at most.

Electric energy is nice, but where does it come from? If the alternator is operated by the motor (or the battery charged by the alternator), the energy loss is greater than the gain. Only if all the power required for dismantling is supplied by braking or rolling down may there be something in it.

A hydrogen-burning engine is the future that would have come if we had not been slaves to the wealthy oil corporations and their proxies.

They try to pull it to infinity.

It is always possible to bribe those who need to prevent and prevent vital processes.

You know that car companies are bigger and stronger than fuel companies?

What fun to have conspiracy theories explained by the Almighty!
