Price of Gasoline
« on: May 24, 2008, 06:51:59 am »
With the cost of all fuel rising every day what are you doing to cope with this problem? Any comments on alternative fuel sources you may be experimenting with like Gasification or HHO system projects for your vehicle? If you have oil heat what are you going to do this winter? At this point we all need solutions.

Be nice if it was true … but it takes as much electricity to create the so called HH0 as the energy produced. 
The link describes it in nauseating detail.  Sorry.

As for alternatives ... hydrogen and much more efficient cars (hybrids) will be two of many options.  Personally I think we are going to see alot more nuclear plants being built.

lol, in the U.K it's the equivalent of being over $9 per Gallon and has been for some time.

Well alot has happened sense the blog that you have shared that's over two (2) years old, many dedicated people have made a lot of improvements and have working models of HHO devices.

Here is the fox video the blog refers to -

I just visited some family in Venzuela for the Easter holiday. It's about 0.12-0.17 US$ a gallon after the approriate conversions. (Yes that is 12 to 17 cents a gallon). AFAIK they are the cheapest gas prices in the world and we filled a minivan for around 2.00-2.50 US$.

Here in Australia I did all the conversions (not really fair as the Aus $ is really strong right now but anyway) comes out at around $5.50 US a gallon here.

edit: In my old country (New Zealand) it's just hit $6 US a gallon.  ::)
