Rain Water: Hybrid Fuel Saver Technology

How we use Rain Water for Fuel Economy

The system has several components, starting with a tank in which to store the rain (or distilled) water. Think of this as being similar to but smaller than the usual screen wash reservoir. We use rain (or distilled) water, to avoid scale build up – the sort of thing you often see in a kettle.

Also supplied with the system is an adequate quantity of high quality tube, in its distinctive blue colour, as well as plastic cable ties and steel fittings to hold the components in place.

Key Components is using Rain Water for Fuel Economy

Firstly there is a small item which heats the water and ionises it. For cars and vans, this is about the size of a disposable lighter; for larger vehicles it is closer to the size of a harmonica. This item is fastened to the exhaust to utilise the waste heat from the engine to heat the water to turn it into vapour, and this is then fed into the engine to aid the combustion process.

The second key item is the inlet, which diffuses the water vapour into the air flow, exploiting the well known Venturi effect.

Hybrid your car by Adding Rain Water

For the low cost of the mEAUtor product, you get:

Improved combustion of fuel injecting into the engine

giving you similar power at the same speed for less fuel

The fuel saving is often in the 20-25% range

reduced wear and tear on your engine components such as particulate filters, etc

and a dramatic reduction in emissions .

Rain Water as Fuel Additive: The Science

In a perfect world, an engine needs a mixture of 14.7 parts of air to 1 part of fuel, measured by weight. This would result in all the fuel combining with all the oxygen in the air to get the most energy from the fuel. The problem is that most engines would overheat at this 14.7 to 1 ratio and would then seize up.

So engines are normally operated at a richer air to fuel ratio, with the excess fuel being used to cool the cylinder, but this results in unburned fuel, which translates as poor fuel economy or poor fuel mileage.

We use rain water – which is much cheaper than petrol, diesel, LPG or any other fuel! – to provide the cooling.

This also means that the engine can be run closer to the ideal ratio of 14.7:1. As water has a higher density and specific heat capacity than most fuels, much smaller volumes are required.

How Much Rain Water is Added?

Typically we use half a litre of water for every thousand km (which translates to about 1 pint per 700 miles). Small family cars run at around 5 litres per hundred kilometres, medium ones at 8-12 litres per hundred kilometres, and large cars can go to 18-20 litres. So, while we are using half a litre of water, 50-200 (or more!) litres of petrol or diesel are being used over a distance of 1,000 km. So the water content is between 0.25% and 1% of the petrol or diesel used in a car.

These amounts are sufficiently low to prevent engine damage, which could result if high volumes of water were to be injected.

Think of driving in foggy conditions: tiny water particles are suspended in the air, and so moist air is drawn into your engine’s air intake while driving in fog. Have you ever heard of anybody having engine problems because they were driving in fog ?

If It’s that Good.

It has been used before! Take a look at the History of Water as Fuel. It was used for a while in Formula 1 and continues to be used on drag racing cars and other high performance vehicles.

In a number of places around the world, amateur experimenters have created and installed their own devices. To save you the time and hassle of experimenting to get it right, we offer a range of products for various different applications, and have loads of testimonials to say the system works and brings great benefits.

Here is a photo of the dashboard display of a Citroen C4 Picasso showing fuel consumption of 4.4 litres/100 km (64 mpg) after a journey of 114km (70.8 miles) travelled with a remaining range of 1420 km (882 miles). This is a 36% improvement on the manufacturer’s official figures of 6 litres/100 km (47 mpg).

A small amount of the humid air is passed through the collector (or reactor) which has been fastened to the exhaust pipe so that it becomes hot, which turns the water content into vapour, or steam. This passes via another of the distinctive blue hoses to the diffuser, which has been set into the air intake hose. This causes a venturi effect in the air intake, which has the effect of sucking the tiny amount of rain water vapour into the air going into the engine.
