In a world desperate to find environmentally friendly fuel sources, it is no wonder many believe that the government and powerful oil company thugs would wish to suppress knowledge of water powered cars

With oil companies willing to use dirty tactics to suppress anyone or anything that gets in their way to maintain their billions of dollars in profits, it is no wonder many speculate that these companies are suppressing knowledge of the water powered car. Indeed, for example, companies such as Chevron, have lied in pollution lawsuits. Their actions were devastating the indigenous Ecuadorians culture and environment.



In another extreme case, Range Resources Corporation and Markwest Energy took legal action against a seven-year-old child! When the energy giants sought a settlement with the child’s parents, part of the agreement was that they make sure the child remained silent on the issue – forever!


Exploitation for profit and power

And there are countless other examples of power and money hungry corporations willing to lie and twist the law to suit their profit margins. Naturally, when one does the math, one might assume that any alternative DIY types of fuel that enable consumers to no longer pay these corporations for the fuel to run their cars would be suppressed! Especially if that alternative fuel is cheap and as readily available as water!

Numerous scientists, engineers, and inventors have claimed to have created a water powered car, throughout the past several decades. Dennis J. Klein was once such inventor. However, his company no longer claims to be able to run a car purely on water. Instead, it claims that their water-based product Aquygen increases fuel efficiency.


Suppression of scientists, engineers, and inventors?

Another water powered car inventor, Stan Meyer, alleged he had been poisoned after he staggered from a restaurant and subsequently died. Many of his supporters claim that likely the government assassinated Meyer to suppress his discoveries. Not long before he died, an Ohio court had convicted him on fraud charges.



Around the world, other companies have claimed to have created water-fuelled cars. For example, the Japanese firm Genepax and the Sri Lankan company Thushara Priyamal Edirisinghe. Iranian scientist Alaeddin Qassemi is the most recent scientist to claim to have invented a water powered vehicle.



So, are these alternative energy innovators victims of rogue governments and thuggish oil companies? It does appear tempting to assume this given the reputation of most government and oil companies. To figure out this answer, one needs to look into how these inventors claim that their water-fuelled cars actually work.


How do they claim to extract fuel from water?

These scientists and inventors claim to be able to extract hydrogen from water, by process of electrolysis. Hydrogen is extremely high energy. However, separating it from the oxygen in water is quite a high energy challenge in and of itself.

However, many scientists are quick to point out some elementary scientific facts that shed doubt upon the viability of a water-fueled car. Attempting to derive energy from water violates both the first and second laws of thermodynamics. In other words, it takes more energy to extract the hydrogen than the extracted hydrogen would create. Simply put, it is a pointless exercise, as it is energy inefficient.

Water, despite its fluid, transparent wetness, is the burnt remains from the collision between hydrogen and oxygen. Trying to extract energy from water is akin to trying to light ashes on fire.




Noble intentions? Or just a scam?

It is very noble for individuals to attempt to create alternative fuels to those that currently are destroying our planet. However, occasionally, con artists can take advantage of people who are honestly trying to avert climate change, by creating a scam such as water-fuelled cars.

Luckily, there are other viable alternatives to fossil fuels which are becoming more popular. Indeed, many car companies, such as Tesla, are creating electric cars. Also, in many nations around the world, public transport such as buses and taxies are run using natural gas. Solar-powered vehicles are also in the works.
