Hydrogen Generator & Water Car History


The idea that water can be used as a fuel may seem shocking or impossible, but its actually been used this way for over 200 years. Below are some of the more notable inventors who have worked in the area of "water fuel":

1800 - William Nicholson:

Discovered electrolysis of water after building a battery and placing the lead wires in water.

1806 - Isaac de Rivaz:

Invented the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and powered it with Hydrogen and Oxygen electrolyzed from water. In 1807, he continued on to build a simple automobile powered by his new engine.

1820 - Reverend William Cecil:

Built an ICE fueled by Hydrogen.

1860 - Jean Joseph Etienne Lenoir:

Built an ICE car that turned water into combustible Hydrogen fuel by electrolysis, as it went down the road.

1930 - Rudolf A. Erren:

German engineer who advanced the use of hydrogen as a transportation fuel in cars, trucks, buses, and submarines. Erren developed a new fuel injection system that allowed the hydrogen to be fed directly into the cylinder, thereby eliminating the carburetor, which was poorly suited to inject a gaseous fuel.

1932 - Henry "Dad" Garrett:

The first to develop a carburetor for the on-demand production of hydrogen and oxygen from water! His invention was patented, demonstrated in public, and described in the newspaper. Then it disappeared.

1960's - Edward Estevel:

Developed a classic 'water to auto engine' system in the late 1960's extracting the hydrogen out of water to use as fuel. This system was highly heralded, then sank among other such "high hope" hydrogen systems amid rumors of foul play.

1970 - Daniel Dingle:

Former employee of NASA, has developed a car that uses plain tap water and/or sea water for fuel. The technology utilizes a mini-reactor in the car that splits the water molecule into hydrogen & oxygen, with hydrogen being burned off as fuel. The emission released out of the exhaust is clean pure water vapor or water - absolutely no pollution.

1974 - Francisco Pacheco:

Inventor from Bolivia created the "Pacheco Bi-Polar Auto electric Hydrogen Generator" (US PAT #5,089,107) which separates hydrogen from seawater. He has built successful prototypes that have fueled a car, a motorcycle, a lawn mower, a torch, a boat, and most recently in 1990 he energized an entire home in West Milford. He made history on July 17th, 1974 when a 26 foot power boat ran for nine hours using the Pacheco Generator and seawater for fuel, putting back into the oceans its waste, only clean water.

1970's - Archie Blue:

An inventor who wanted to find a way to provide heat or cooking fuel for a camper by converting water into hydrogen and oxygen. He ended up with a device that produced enough gas to run a motor vehicle, using a 12V air pump to force air through his electrolyzer.

1970's - Andrija Puharich:

Dr. Andrija Puharich reportedly drove his motor home for hundreds of thousands of miles around North America in the 1970s using only water as fuel. At a mountain pass in Mexico, he collected snow for water.

1976 - Rodger Billings:

Headed a group of inventors that developed a system converting ordinary cars to run on Hydrogen. Instead of using heavy hydrogen tanks, he used metal alloys called Hydrides, to store vast amounts of hydrogen. When hot exhaust gases passed through these Hydride containers it released the gas to burn in the standard engines. Billings estimated the conversion would cost around $500 and greatly improve fuel consumption.

1976 - Sam Leslie Leach:

Developed Sam Leach's Box. A mysterious stainless-steel case, about the size of a steamer trunk, equipped on the outside with six dials and a gas jet, which the inventor claims will do nothing less than produce combustible hydrogen from tap water - without any continous source of outside energy.

1978 - Yull Brown:

Developed a method of extracting hydrogen from water in 1978 and utilizing it as a car fuel and fuel for cutting steel and brazing.

1978 - Robert M. Zweig, M.D:

Physician who, because of his first-hand knowledge of the impact of air pollution on his patients, dedicated himself to eradicating smog and pursuing clean air alternatives to improve air quality.

1978 - Dr. Ruggero Santilli:

Physicist claims to have developed novel fuels, named MagneGas and MagneHydrogen: these names are trademarks of Hadronic Press. They are produced by plasma arc gasification of liquid waste. Santilli claims that these fuels are composed of magnecules. These hypothetical magnecules are a type of chemical species theoretically proposed by Santilli, distinguished from better-known species by containing a novel type of bond called a "magnecular bond", which he claims consists of atoms held together by magnetic fields which arise from toroidal polarization of their electron orbitals.

1978 - Steven Horvath:

Patented a fuel supply apparatus which generates hydrogen and oxygen by electrolysis of water. It has an electrolytic cell which has a circular anode surrounded by a cathode with a porous membrane between them. The anode is fluted and the cathode is slotted to provide anode and cathode areas of substantially equal surface area. A pulsed electrical current is provided between the anode and cathode for the efficient generation of Hydrogen and Oxygen.

1980 - Stan Meyer:

Developed water fuel cells, retrofitted them into automobiles and fueled the vehicles with the Hydrogen and Oxygen produced instead of gasoline. He claimed that his device required less energy to perform electrolysis than the minimum energy requirement predicted by conventional science (so-called "super electrolysis"). He developed a dune buggy which he claimed ran on just water, and would get 100 miles per gallon (of water). Meyer also claimed to have replaced the spark plugs with "injectors" to spray a fine mist of water into the engine cylinders, which he claimed were subjected to an electrical resonance. In 1996 he was sued by his investors, to whom he had sold dealerships. He died in 1998 after sipping from his drink while dining at a restaurant. An autopsy report concluded that he had died of a cerebral aneurysm, but conspiracy theorists insist that he was poisoned to suppress the technology.

1980 - Bob Boyce:

Electrolyzer builder and expert on series-cell design. A series-cell can either be a chain of separate, simple HHO Generators wired together, or a single device with several electrodes which form separate cells within the device.

1983 - Carl Cella:

"Rampage" rocker who built and installed a Hydrogen Generator and mounted it in the trunk of a 1979 Cadillac Coupe de Ville.

1983 - Herman P. Anderson:

Inventor who worked on the challenge of turning water into combustible fuel for a car. He built a round vertical drum electrolysis chamber out of a 3" slice of 14" OD PVC pipe, with a 13" OD nickel-plated steel anode and cathode spaced 3" apart. Using both 22 amp DC electrolysis and a pulsed, standing wave 70,000 volt corona discharge, de-ionized water with KOH (pH 12) was turned into deuterium and oxygen gas, mixed with air and micron-sized water vapor, and inducted into the engine.

1990 - Joe X:

Designed the "Joe Cell", a remarkable water "Energy Cell" that only utilizes water for a "fuel" and develops substantially more power than gasoline. It was originally designed for use in cars, but it can be used with almost any engine that normally runs on gasoline such as motorcycles, outboard marine engines, lawn mowers, portable electric generators, etc. The Energy Cell alone provides all the power that the engine needs. After an Energy Cell is installed and functioning properly, the gasoline fuel lines can be completely disconnected.

1996 - Dr. Cliff Ricketts:

Professor at Middle Tennessee State University as been involved with alternative fuel research since 1978. Designed the H2 Reactor which is an electrolyzer that uses a unique process of electrolysis to create hydrogen and oxygen gases from water. After extensive technical research and development work, HyPower believes that the H2 Reactor's electrolysis process is technologically the most efficient to date in terms of oxy-hydrogen production to an electrical input. The H2 Reactor has the potential of being approximately 2 times more efficient than the current state of the competing technology.

2000 - Patrick J. Kelly:

Authors and maintains several documents and websites dealing with alternative fuel and free energy technologies.

2003 - Michael A. Peavey:

Wrote "Fuel From Water" which advocates hydrogen fuel as the best long-term alternative to fossil fuels and as a way to stop polluting the air and subsidizing terrorists. Shows how to generate hydrogen by electrolysis, how to convert an internal combustion engine to hydrogen, and how hydrogen can be used in home appliances.

2005 - Steve Ryan:

New Zealand inventor built a motorcycle which runs on a water-based fuel. The water is converted into a fuel by a process other than electrolysis, then poured into the fuel tank and burned by the engine. The carburetor is only slightly modified.
