Convert your car to burn water, Part 2

I recently wrote about how you can make a simple change to your car or truck to double your gas mileage.

You can read that post here.

It doesn’t have a lot to do with architecture. It’s more in the Sustainability category, or even the Taking Personal Responsibility category.

(Or how about the Quit Getting Ripped Off at the Pump category?)

Turns out, that post was one of the more popular of my postings, so I thought I’d tell you more about it.

In my post, I told you about a proprietary system for getting more miles or kilometers to the gallon.

You can do this with simple parts that you buy at Home Depot.

And you get the easy-to-follow instructions here.

Want to hear from someone who’s already done this?

I was looking for a way to decrease my gas expenses and I know it’s no easy task. Let me briefly share my story where I started in this process.

About 2 years ago I was tired of spending a ton of money on gas for the truck I was driving. So decided to buy a small gas economic car. Right away I almost doubled my MPG.

Finally, I was smiling while at the gas station as I watched the digital cash cow roll up on the gas pump.

But, after time went by I realized how much I missed driving my truck, especially during the winter and became a little tired of driving a small car around.

Thought this car could also be used as our 2nd family car, not the case we quickly found out.

So, the question became how do I drive the vehicle I want, while meeting my families needs and still reduce gas expenses?

My wife called me crazy at first, and to be honest I was slightly skeptical about using water for gas.

I made the decision to personally put together the system and tried it out on my older car… Amazingly enough within the first week I had a 82% increase in MPG.

Instantly we became believers and was so excited about this discovery that I decided to find a way to help other people Save on Gas expenses too.

To Your Gas Savings!

My car is an 1986 Subaru GL. I bought her originally in 1989.

Two weeks ago I agreed to have the gas saving device put on my car. Immediately I noticed that the engine was much, much quieter and smoother.

We did a test drive on the car with and without the device. The results were spectacular. The Subaru does 32.8 miles to the gallon. With the device - which is only the very basic fitting - the Subaru did 36.8 miles to the gallon, a saving of twelve and a half percent. With the rest of the equipment that Ozzie has now I estimate I would save circa 40%.

What was really noticeable on this test drive was the difference in the quietness of the engine and how the car picked up much more easy with the device installed.

Since then, I have noticed that the car continues to improve and I feel she is back to where she was in 1989. Feels like a new car!!

I am very pleased to have this device on my car which will not only save on the gas, but clean the engine, reduce emissions into the environment, and therefore give my car a longer life, as I love my Subi.. Also this will help because this year I have to have a complete smog test to go with my application for my registration renewal.

It’s very simple. You don’t change your engine or computer. A quart-size (95O cc) container is placed somewhere under the hood. You fill it with DISTILLED WATER and a little bit of BAKING SODA. The device gets vacuum and electricity (12 Volts) from the engine, and produces HHO gas (Hydrogen+Oxygen) as shown in the MUCH QUIETER video below.

The best Saturday Project Ever.

Hi. My name is Katy. I like it when you write to me and tell me about the cool stuff you're doing in architecture. Yes, I write back.* I may publish your letter and my reply on the blog. If you don't want me to do that, you can just ask that I withhold your name, or if you're really serious about keeping your letter a secret, you can ask me to just not publish it at all. Of course I'll still write back to you. * I hope you'll take this opportunity to share your thoughts with our worldwide audience.

places where you could probably learn more about designing and building in just a few days than I did after a year of grad school

Know of some others I can add here? Let me know. Have you already visited some of these places...or planning on it? Let me know and I will feature your story and your photos here!

I am starting a new kind of architecture school. Unlike most architecture schools, you wouldn't have to submit GRE scores or good grades or letters of recommendation. You wouldn't have to put the rest of your life on hold for 3 to 5 years. You wouldn't have to accrue tens of thousands of dollars in debt. At my architecture school, anyone could come for a few weeks and learn how to build a house with their own two hands. My teachers would take skills and concepts from some of these other workshops I've listed above... except classes would be held year-round to make it easy to fit into your schedule. I would have a number of different campuses around the country that would teach building designs appropriate to the local climate. And I need your help. Can you donate land for a campus? Can you dotate books for a library? Can you teach a workshop? Can you provide start-up capital? Let me know.
