Fuel pill

Converting water into fuel


Sonora Aero Club

In 1850 one sonora aero club member claimed to know a way to distill a green crystal from coal. Add water to and you generate a super light gas with incredible lifting ability. It was much more flammable than hydrogen and appears to be an unknown element below hydrogen on the atomic scale.[1]  This gas was used to fly very compact blimps. Charles A.A. Dellschau left several scetch books with designs of such blimps.[2] Only a few people knew the secret and the recepe was eventually lost.[3]

Louis Enricht

In 1916, Louis Enricht  invented a substitute for gasoline that can be manufactured for a penny a gallon. Enricht allowed reporters to inspect the empty gas tank of an automobile. The reporters also tasted the water that Enricht then poured into the tank. He added a green pill, started the car, and gave the reporters a ride around Farmingdale, Long Island. William Haskell, publisher of the Chicago Herald, investigated Enricht’s claims. He wrote:

    "I examined the entire engine and tank. I even tasted the water before the mysterious green pill was dropped into the tank. Then I opened the petcock and examined the liquid, which now tasted like biter almonds. I also tasted the liquid at the carburator which was the same. I was amazed when the auto started. We drove it around the city without any trouble".[4]

John Andrews

In 1917, John Andrews converted fresh or salt water into a fuel with the same power as gasoline. The chemical costs were about 2 cents/gallon.  Andrews demonstrate his invention at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where a motor boat was fitted with a dynamometer for the test. Commander Earl P. Jessup, who was Captain of the yard, said: "We gave Andrews a bucket of water drawn from the Navy Yard [fresh water] hydrant by one of the yard attaches. He got into his car with a gallon can which we inspected and found to be empty and a little satchel he carried with him. In about a minute he handed out the filled can which I personally carried to the open fuel tank. While pouring the liquid into the tank, Andrews held a lighted cigarette close to the liquid, which did not ignite. The engine caught just as quickly as it would have done with gasoline, and after a moment’s adjustment of the carburator, it settled down to its work, developing 75% of its rated horsepower". In a second test, Andrews was put in an empty room with no possible way to get rid of the bucket of salt water with which he had been supplied, except to empty it into his one-gallon gas can. Commander Jessup said: "In a minute he emerged with the can filled, and the engine again used it up, no difference being noted between the salt water and fresh. Besides myself, Rear Admiral G.E. Burd, the Industrial Manager of the yard, was present and with the precautions we had taken --- our own Navy engine, tank and carburator and our own men supplying the water --- there was no possibility of deception.[4]

Guido Franch
In 1925 German scientist Alexander Kraft shared his invention with Guido Franch. His fuel is produced by adding one pound of green crystals to 50 gallons of water water making a 105-octane fuel. One pound of the green crystals can be produced from 25 pounds of coal at a cost of about $100.  Franch demonstrated it hundreds of times. It burns clean and leaves no residue. In one demonstration with a lawnmower, it ran for about 15 minutes on a small amount of treated water. An equal amount of gasoline lasted only 3 minutes. The fuel is very sensitive to sunlight, which will turn it back to water with a white powder residue.  Gary Bolz, a consultant on carburetion and fuel engineering, with the help of chemists at Michigan State University and Havoline Chemical Laboratories. Bolz stated: "The granules are dark olive green. As they enter water, they dissolve in a string of green, which begins to spread fiber-like throughout the water. As the water begins to react, there is a swirling effect. Reaction is complete in a few minutes. If the crystals are mixed in 1:1 ratio with water, the resulting fluid is highly explosive and can be detonated by a small shock. But it isn’t shock-sensitive when mixed at a normal ratio of one ounce of powder per half gallon of water. The finished fuel is lighter than water".[4]

Ramar Pillai

In 1996, at the Indian Institute of Technology (ITT), 30-years old Ramar Pillai demonstrated the conversion of water to a hydrocarbon fuel by mixing it with a herbal formula.ITT chemist N. K. Jha stated: "It is incredible but true".
About two ounces of leaves and bark were boiled in a liter of water, cooled, and a small amount of salt, citric acid, and secret chemicals were added. About a pint of combustible liquid that smells and burns like kerosene was produced within 30 minutes. The National Chemical Laboratory (Pune, India) analyzed the substance and found it to be a pure hydrocarbon with a boiling point of 170° C. The new fuel is more efficient than gasoline, and produces no sulfur exhaust. Researchers at the Indian Institute of Petroleum further confirmed the reality of the process.[4]
