Hydrogen History - From 1807 to Stan Meyer

Stan Meyer is the most recent inventor, but we need to start in the 1800's

Did You Know?

First Hydrogen Car 203 Years Ago

In 1807, a Swiss inventor by the name of Francois Issac de Rivaz invented the first internal combustion engine and it burned hydrogen from water?

First Hydrogen Car

By compressing hydrogen gas and oxygen in a balloon, he started this car engine with a Volta electrical cell ignition. Rivaz was the first holder of the land speed record, at 3 miles an hour.

In 1860 There Was A Smog Free Vehicle That Used A Reusable Fuel Called Water

One of Etienne Lenoir of France greatest inventions was the ICE car, that turned water into combustible hydrogen fuel through electrolysis, a one stroke 2 cylinder combustion engine.

The Hippomobile
First Hydrogen Car Based on his 1860 invention in 1863 came the hippomobile, Lenoir called his engine this unusual name because the electrolyzed water (hydrogen gas) ran through a small horizontal engine. The engine, running on what Lenoir called "natural cycles," pulled the fuel mixture in such a way that on the down stroke of the piston, the (exhausted) fuel combusted, powering the engine. The Hippomobile made a test drive from Paris to Joinville-le-Pont (9 miles) in about three hours.

Charles H. Frazer Was First To US Patent A "Hydrogen Booster"

In 1918 Frazer was the first to U.S. patent a "hydrogen booster" system for internal combustion engines. He stated that his invention increases efficiency, engine will stay cleaner and lower grade fuel can be used with equal performance. His invention was published in the newspaper, publicly demonstrated and then disappeared. Some believe fuel was so cheap that the idea was before its time, others think oil companies may have paid him off.

There Have Been Over 240 Patents

Since 1930 there has been over 240 patents for engines that get 100 - 250 Miles Per Gallon.
Can you guess who bought all of them? Man Thinking Your Right!

Jules Vernes Talked About Water As Fuel Jules Verne

in 1875 in his book Mysterious Island

"Water decomposed into its primitive elements, and decomposed doubtless by electricity, which will then have become a powerful and manageable force. Yes, my friends, I believe that water will one day be employed as a fuel".

Norway Company Modifies Company Trucks

Norway's Norsk Hydro aluminum and power company, a furnisher of renewable energy, in 1933 adapted the engine of one of the company's small trucks to run on hydrogen gas. Fitted with an ammonia reformer to draw out hydrogen, the truck's modified combustion engine ran on the reclaimed water. This remarkable accomplishment received little publicity at the time due to the Nazi threat in Europe.

A Russian Converts 200 military Trucks To Run On Hydrogen Gas

In 1941 during WWII, the Nazis had Leningrad, Russia surrounded, cutting off supplies and petroleum was running low. GAZ AA Truck Hydrogen Gas So, military technician Boris Shelishch stepped in an converted a GAZ-AA truck to run on hydrogen gas. After receiving orders from top commanders, Boris Shelishch and his crew converted 200 GAZ-AA trucks in 10 days to run on hydrogen gas. Records documented that all the modified engines fired cleaner and longer than those still using petrol gasoline.

NASA Put Out A Document On Hydrogen in 1977

The documents states that hydrogen helps gasoline powered internal combustion engines increase mileage and lower emissions. KKK The title of the document is "Emissions And Total Energy Consumption Of A Multicylinder Piston Engine Running On Gasoline And A hydrogen-Gasoline Mixture".

Stan Meyer - Conspiracy? First Hydrogen Car

Stan Meyer was a great inventor from Ohio, he was most famous for his water fueled dune buggy that ran on water with on board electrolysis.Meyer Dune Buggy It ran 100 Miles Per Gallon.

Stan Meyer died in March of 1988 at the age of 57

The following is an interesting excerpt from the Columbus Dispatch

After more than 20 years of research and tinkering, it was time to celebrate. Stan Meyer, his brother and two Belgian investors raised glasses in the Grove City Cracker Barrel on March 20, 1998. Meyer said his invention could do what physicists say is impossible -- turn water into hydrogen fuel efficiently enough to drive his dune buggy cross-country on 20 gallons straight from the tap. He took a sip of cranberry juice. Then he grabbed his neck, bolted out the door, dropped to his knees and vomited violently. "I ran outside and asked him, 'What's wrong?' " his brother, Stephen Meyer, recalled. "He said, 'They poisoned me.' That was his dying declaration." Read More at dispatch.com...
