100 miles on 4 oz. of water?

This looks pretty interesting, but if it's true I'm surprised it hasn't gotten more press than just this little clip. I'd invest tomorrow if it were true.

100 miles on 4 oz of water (or 25 miles per ounce). I got a 30 gallon tank in my beast.....that computes to 96,000 miles on one tank of water.

Now 96,000 miles divided by 12 mpg = 8000 gallons x $3.30 = $26,400

Heck, even it it cost me $10,000 to install, I'm still money ahead.

Actually it could be done, but the heat from the nuclear fusion reaction would melt your truck. Better buy a Nomex Suit.

OH, I don't know about that Jim. People have been using Hydrogen and Oxygen torches for quite a while now. Especially jewlers, because the heat produced is less than an Ox/Acetalene torch, but still enough to melt gold. The fusion reaction certainly generates heat, but no where near enough to melt your truck.

In middle school chemistry class our instructor filled a balloon full of helium and lit it with a match. It combined with free oxygen in the air and created water vapor (and a quite loud boom) but it didn't melt down the classroom.

First, may I direct your attention to a thread in the FTE Alternative Fuels section:

Second, a hydrogen/oxygen torch is NOT a fusion reaction. It is a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen with the introduction of heat. The byproduct of burning Hydrogen and Oxygen is water. True the torch will probably not melt your truck. But a hydrogen fusion reaction is what is happening on the surface of the SUN!!! I think that'll git-er-dun! (melting the truck) In a fusion reaction, the atoms are fused and a new material is created. The hydrogen atoms are fused and helium is created.

Third, No he did not fill the balloon with Helium. Helium is an inert gas that will not burn. I bet he filled the balloon with Hydrogen.

I stand corrected on the fusion part.

Sorry, I typed helium and ment hydrogen
