    Water engines

    We had a debate on here a few weeks ago about running internal combustion engines on water. Whilst looking for a link to an unrelated subject I found this.

    might be worth trying to find the patents and see how it worked, if it worked.

    I pointed out back in the other thread that spraying a fine mist of water into the air intake can improve the running, but not by much, as it provides ionised droplets for the fuel to condense round.

    Drag racers did that a lot in the 70's to prevent detonation from advanced timing. Some guys even put it in their street cars because of the cheap gas and high compression.
