If it works nobody would want to run in fresh water.

thats pretty amazing

As far as not wanting to run in fresh water, im sure they would find some way to extract the active ingredients in saltwater into some sorta powder form to allow you to have a mixing tank to mix with fresh water to become "salt water" in fresh water... now what they would charge and what the equivilent would be to a gallon of gas, who knows

Im assuming that somehow youd have to inject the salt water into the combustion chamber and fire it up, how does this work with the oil? from my understanding water in the engine = bad? but in small amounts would it get vaporized?

also what is the energy per gallon with this new discovery vs. regular fuel?

the experiment they showed there in the vid was a steam engine.

hope this made sense i suck at expressing my thoughts lol

The real question is how much power to get it to combust. How much energy does it take to run that machine. VS. how much you get out of the reaction for power.

JL I don't think that you would use this as fuel in a engine like gas it would be more for saw steam creation like they show in the video.

Indeed.

How much energy to power his radio frequency generator.

Interesting however.
