OK... did I miss the irony or the sarcasm in your reference to "big oil"?
My apologies if you intended it other than the way it read. It's just getting VERY old listening to the HHO proponents trying to bolster their bogus (and that's what they are) claims.
I do believe I may have reached my "absolute nonsense tolerance" limit.

I'm done running around in this circle, so no, I really have no interest in being shown a car and listening to a claim that a quart of water under the hood is giving a 50% increase in mileage.
If you've actually done that, great. I'll be buying one as soon as you manufacture and sell these miraculous devices. If it's really as simple as all that, I shouldn't have long to wait.
But if you or anyone else wants to prove that this claptrap works, YOU are the ones that are going to have to step up and do it. If *I* had a working HHO kit, I would be going to anyone and everyone I could find trying to DEMONSTRATE and SELL it to a car manufacturer rather than asking people to simply believe it.
Even ignoring the impossibility of the idea working due to physics, there's no RATIONAL way to explain why this idea isn't on every car being manufactured right now if it indeed does work.
Think GM could use a 50% boost on the mileage of their vehicles right now? And if HHO proponents are sitting on this idea and not taking it to GM, I think there are a lot of other people besides me looking at the situation in Detroit who would want to know WHY.
But we already know why. GM isn't adding this technology to their cars because it doesn't work. If it did, they would. In a HEARTBEAT.

You remind me of an ostrich, there eyes are bigger than there brains, and when confronted hide there heads in a hole! So read with your eyes but there is no brain to put it in. Do you even know what a scan tool is? WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD!

You can send me the plans for your kit, and I'll build it and test it sure. But I'm not giving any scam artist $80 bucks. E-mail me if you want to send me detailed plans.
I have no agenda. I'd LOVE to get 96 mpg on my Subaru. I'll be your BIGGEST booster.

You're not gonna hold your breath waiting for those plans are ya Shifty?

No, because they want my $80 bucks obviously.
One would think that if one wanted good free publicity for one's product, one would give some away to media people---one would think---unless one would be worried that said product will register a big Goose Egg in pubic view.
I have a very good mechanical background and training. I can build anything you guys can send me.
If it works I'll be glad to pay you for it. If it doesn't, I'll be glad to send it back.
How much fairer can I be here?
