I've moved this thread over from the 'Popper' discussions as it fits better in here... :)
True..and grrr..i can't top that video..;)
But still..how are the calculations on input and output? When is producing HHO to run your car really cheaper then the amount of electricity it costs?
No, only a spreadsheet will do..LOL
LET'S BUILD A NEW WATER-POWERED CAR?
Many thanks... and so far those are the best units that I've been able to find off the shelf for gas output.
Daniel Dingel said that 20 litres per minute was enough to run his car at 70kmh and that it consumed 1 litre of water to drive for one hour.
So my theory is the Punch 110v cell produces up to 20 - 25 litres per minute which should be more then enough:
"55 plate 120v hydrogen hho generator capable of over 20 LPM - 25 lpm max."
(I have no affiliation with them just, as I said, they are the best units I've found so far and they delivered as promised).
So how to run a 120v cell in a car..? - 5000 Watt Continuous/10,000 Watt Peak Power Inverter - http://www.harborfreight.com/automotive-motorcycle/power-inverters/5000-watt-continuous-10000-watt-peak-power-inverter-96706.html
My theory is that 5kw @ 120v should be enough power to run the Punch cell from a 12v supply, albeit with a pretty heavy current draw, so I will run it from some additional heavy duty truck batteries. (5000 Watt inverter draws 417 Amps from the 12 V supply (Battery).
Add an electrolyte solution of Ammonium Chloride as it is meant to work just as well as KOH which is normally used but without causing any heat as most units running on KOH have a problem with over heating after the unit has been running for a while and it also helps to reduce scale buildup.
Obviously the above setup is far from ideal but hopefully will give 'proof of concept' that it is possible to run a car on ordinary tap water. Once it is up and running, will then need to add some additional heavy duty alternators to cope with the heavy current draw.
Last hurdle I envisage is negating the waste spark - I've seen one way of doing it by adding a hall-effect sensor and magnet on the camshaft to effectively make a new ignition timing system... but I am still thinking that there has to be a simpler way..?
Any additional thoughts, ideas or input gratefully received... :)
Russ is already running the pulse-motor build-off - so how about also running a water-powered car build-off based on the above spec...? Any takers...? :)
All the best
