We've all heard the conspiracy theories about some guy who develops a water powered car only to disappear shortly thereafter, never to be heard from again. The belief has been held by many that the technology for running a car on water has long been available but the oil companies have been suppressing it in order to maintain their monopoly on energy.

Well, I'm here to tell you that indeed the water powered car technology is very real. The truth is that, conspiracy theories aside, the technology has been available for decades but has only recently come to light in a major way. In fact companies are popping up left right and center with blueprints for building your own water powered car for less than $200.

I should clarify. While possible, it is not feasible at this time to build a car that runs on water 100%. It is however, very possible, in fact it's very simple, to construct a simple device that rests under the hood of your car or truck and converts water into a fuel that can be used in conjunction with your gas burning engine to power your car.

Converting your car to run on water provides a number of benefits. Chief among them is the fact that doing so can improve gas mileage by as much as 50%. It also cleans out your engine, improves performance as well as decreases emissions dramatically.

The way it works is basically this. You do not have to change your engine or computer anything. Instead, a quart-size container is secured under the hood. You fill the container with distilled water along with a small amount of baking soda. The device gets vacuum and electricity from the engine, and produces HHO gas. The HHO gas is fed into the engine's intake manifold or carburetor which in turn aids in powering your vehicle. There have been reports of as much as 70% increase in fuel economy.

With the price of gas skyrocketing across the country, not to mention the global warming situation, a water powered car is definitely something to consider. There is a lot of information out there so I recommend doing a little research and finding the plan that is right for you. However, when searching for a set of plans be cautious. While prices on conversion plans very quite a bit, so to does the quality of the plans. Generally you get what you pay for. So what are you waiting for? Find out if a water powered car is right for you.
