Water-fueled vehicles are vehicles that are assumed to derive energy directly from water. Water-fueled vehicles have been the subject of numerous international patents, newspaper and popular science magazine articles, local TV news reports and websites. Claims of these devices have been found to be pseudoscience, some of which have been linked to investment fraud.These vehicles may claim to produce fuel from on-board water with no other energy input, or may be hybrids claiming to produce fuel in addition to traditional sources such as gasoline Get part of your energy from water.
Water is fully oxidized hydrogen. Hydrogen itself is a highly energetic and flammable substance, but its useful energy is released when water is formed.Water doesn't burn,the electrolysis process can split water into hydrogen and oxygen but it takes as much energy to split water molecules as it releases when hydrogen is oxidized to water.In fact, some energy is lost in the process of converting water to hydrogen and then burning the hydrogen, because there is always some waste heat in the conversion process.Therefore, the release of chemical energy from water in excess or in equal proportion to that required to facilitate this production would violate the first or second law of thermodynamics.
A water-fueled vehicle is not any of the following:
Water injection, which is a method of cooling an engine's combustion chamber by adding water to the incoming fuel-air mixture, allowing for higher compression ratios and reducing engine knock (knock).
A hydrogen car, although it generally contains some of the same elements.To fuel hydrogen vehicles with water, electricity is used to produce hydrogen through electrolysis.The resulting hydrogen is an energy carrier that can power a car by reacting with oxygen in the air to produce water, which can be burned in an internal combustion engine or catalyzed in a fuel cell to generate electricity.
Hydrogen boosting, where a mixture of hydrogen and conventional hydrocarbon fuels is burned in an internal combustion engine, usually to improve fuel economy or reduce emissions.
Steam cars, which use water (both liquid and gaseous) as the working fluid instead of fuel.
