The following article was not written by me, the author of this website, but was taken from a magazine, Psychedelic Illuminations, Volume I, Issue VIII. I'm putting it here because I've talked to a couple of people that who met this person, and I believe they are credible. I will not put you in touch with them.

FUEL FOR FREE--Hydrogen Generator: (What TV Doesn't Tell You)
DUDE, First off, this ain't no bogus "gimme your money, fuck off' bullshit; this energy device actually works! I am the madman behind the heavy metal band "Rampage," but long before my musical success, I was mechanically inclined, and the possibility of feasibly running a car on fuel extracted from water intrigued me to no end. After reading all the information I could find on the subject of hydrogen generators, I built my first actual unit in 1983, mounting it in the trunk of a 1979 Cadillac Coupe de Ville. You don't have to worry about gas mileage, because gross vehicle weight is of no concern when the fuel you're using is free! I constructed my system from the best of all the other systems I read about, then went even further to also use the strongest materials, and cleanest layout possible within reason. All the titanium nuts and bolts were scored from an aircraft salvage supply; they're cheaper used, and since they'll never wear out, that's a way to save some big bucks. Certain head and exhaust system modifications have to be made to expect trouble-free extended use. For one, the combustion of hydrogen results in the rebonding of the previously-separated hydrogen and oxygen molecules, making the engine's exhaust water vapor steam, and nothing else, meaning absolutely no pollution at all! Most auto makers use cast-iron exhaust manifolds and steel valves. The combined effects of heat and moisture (moisture not being present in the combustion of petroleum based fuels) cause extremely rapid corrosion of the system. Part of the fix is to install stainless steel valves, and an exhaust system constructed entirely out of stainless steel. Racing shops sell stainless steel valves, stainless steel "turbo" mufflers that all work fine. Since hydrogen does not contain lead as some gasoline does, if you're not using a late-model, no-lead engine, the heads will have to be reworked to include valve seats not needing the lubrication lead provides. As for building this device to sell as a completed system, that's a dead issue. In 1983, I contacted the Department of Energy to show them my car actually worked; I was confronted by two very belligerent "agents of tyrannical oppression," who told me if I tried to sell prebuilt units, I'd have a lot of "problems." I asked why, demanding a fuckin' explanation, and was told very bluntly, and not in a very nice tone: "Do you have any idea what a device like this available to the public would do to the economy?" It all boils down to big money; oil company revenues, and gasoline taxes. The world oil supply is very regulated, and profitable to make as scarce as possible to keep prices high. How can they stop or control rain? "They" can't, and since water is free, "they" can't make any money off it. This technology is so simple, that anyone with over half a brain, and knowledgeable in auto mechanics can build one of these units. I've included comprehensive, no bullshit, drafted design layouts, parts lists, maintenance tips, and a whole lot of engine modification concepts to make construction, part fabrication, and implementation as easy as reasonably possible. The unit I built works as great as I claim it to, but I offer only the printed information on how to build your own, and I take no personal responsibility for damage of any kind caused to your vehicle, or self by your own stupidity if you just happen to be some kind of airhead that can't read plain fuckin' English, or comprehend technical instructions no matter how simple they are explained. I have only applied my unit to a carburetted engine; I have never attempted an application to a fuel injected engine, nor do I make any such claim that an application of that type is easily performed, if possible at all. EVERY CUBIC FOOT OF WATER CONTAINS ABOUT 1,376 CUBIC FEET OF HYDROGEN GAS AND 680 CUBIC FEET OF OXYGEN. Because there is no pollution produced, all smog devices may legally be completely removed, and your car exempted from smog checks, as are propane-powered vehicles. The only maintenance I've encountered is to periodically wire brush mineral deposits off of the reaction chamber electrodes, and at longer intervals, clean out the chamber itself; neither of which is complicated, or very time-consuming. I've incorporated so many backup electrodes so this job won't be required roadside as it was for me when I first used only one, not knowing about any deposits covering the entire electrode, thus halting the electrical reaction process. When the car dies out, just flip another switch, and so on until you're somewhere able to brush the reactor's electrodes clean in reasonable comfort; and not northbound on Highway 5, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco where my first breakdown was. Where the steel gasoline tank used to be, a plastic water tank is fitted, along with an electric float sensor that will be attached to the vehicle's existing fuel gauge. If you were to start your engine with no modifications other than the carburetor to accept hydrogen fuel, it will run fine, but the exhaust system will rapidly corrode in almost no time, and if you leave the engine turned off for an "extended period," your stock valves and guides will rust up and seize! Stainless steel valves don't cost much, and are as trouble free as the stainless steel exhaust system; so don't be a fool, and try to go cheap, because you'll only cause yourself added expense, headaches, and you'll be cursing me for your own stupidity. For the cast-iron combustion chambers and valve ports, there is a high-temperature ceramic coating call "heanium" that can be performed to guard against the same corrosion that affects the valves, guides, and exhaust system. Also intake manifold; moisture down there too will cause corrosion. Petroleum-based fuels have their own detergent action that protects against corrosion, much like soaking parts in oil prevents corrosion. When using hydrogen as an internal combustion engine fuel, extra precautions must be taken to make extended operation a reality, and not some drive-a-few-thousand-miles between-fried-engines bullshit. Don't use seawater!!! It contains approximately three fourths of a pound of salt in every gallon; a material that will coat the electrodes very quickly, just making one big mess. The reason for electrode deposit build-up is that tap water is never 100% percent pure, it contains mineral contaminants that are drawn to the reaction chamber electrode during the electrically activated molecular separation process that results in the hydrogen contained in water to be released from the oxygen molecules they are bonded to; making a fuel that can power an internal combustion engine. The two most abundant elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity; hydrogen can easily be produced in a controllable form from water; and stupidity will either misapply it when exposed to the technology behind it, or just plain keep it suppressed out of easily-seen public view for personal gain by pushing upon people who don't know otherwise, the costly, and environmentally deteriorative auto fuel gasoline, that the readily-available supply of can be controlled by money-hungry parasites out for every last cent they can pillage from an unsuspecting planet of uninformed "consumers, " who if otherwise knew how simple hydrogen generation is, would not buy gasoline!!! The two biggest money-makers on earth are the electric and oil companies. Electricity can be generated by engine-powered devices, and those engines can be fueled by hydrogen, so if the extracting process came from a generator (a car's alternator) powered by the engine, and a constant supply of water was available--possibly condensing the almost-perpetually-operating machine; but not fully perpetual, because some energy escapes as heat, though its efficiency would still be very high; and since the fuel needed is free to begin with, who'd complain? I offer no design for an exhaust steam condenser, but I do make the suggestion that one can be built applicable to an automobile to increase the cost-free mileage even further between "fill-ups." A concept (would include some form of exhaust-fed radiator that could incorporate air ducts leading from scoops to direct highway speed airflow across it. I offer the idea, but no design because may aspects must be considered, such as: least amount of back pressure, unit pressure; unit placement with regard to configuration by the limit or abundance of that space, though this would be one constructed for a stationary, engine-powered electrical generator, where space limitation is of no concern. Back to the bottom line of my device, which is able to fuel a car from water you can get for free? Sure, the cylinder walls are cast iron, and prone to rust, but those are kept clean by piston action (as long as it's not left sitting for long periods between use), though an entire engine built from stainless steel would be the hot ticket; don't hold your breath waiting for the big guys to offer anything that will make hydrogen-powered cars readily available. They're making money on gasoline, you can't rely on them, remember that! Am I making sense? Is there anybody home? Turn off the TV. (which is mostly lies anyway...do you like being lied to or what?), raise up off the couch, pop a few no-doz and get to work! !! How much do you spend a year on gasoline? I don't know about you, but I'd rather buy food! An automobile engine could feasibly be constructed with noncorrosive stainless steel heads and cylinders straight from the factory; a solid reason to justify spending 25 grand or more for a car, because the fuel to run it would be free, and these modification wouldn't have to be "modifications." Factory-built or not, as long as rain exists on this planet, and I'm alive to see it, I'm driving for free!!! There has been much criticism over hydrogen as an auto fuel. Most of it coming as propaganda-filled lies straight from those who have the most to lose if hydrogen ever achieves widespread use as an automotive fuel...proponents of the oil companies! Then of course, there are the few stupid idiots who have simply just ignored all common sense, thinking they're an exception, not replacing their engine's stock regular steel valves (and cast iron guides) with stainless steel valves, and bronze valve guides. These fuckin' airheads cause their engine's top end to seize out of total ignorance. They try to go cheap, then blame the concept of hydrogen auto fuel as the reason; spreading lies about this great and simple technology. Wouldn't you spend between one and three thousand dollars (to do it right) on a complete conversion of your car's fuel system, if that were a one-time "investment," resulting in the end of buying gasoline ever again for that vehicle? There are some factory-built high performance cars on the market that already come with stainless steel valves, but they are few and far between, and you still have to change the exhaust systems. For the carburetor to accept a vaporstate fuel, it must be converted using the same parts that are used in propane/ butane engine fuel systems; such as carburetor kits by "IMPCO" or similar that do the same thing (enable your engine to be powered by a vapor-state fuel). Because no pollution is produced, the engine may "legally" be rebuilt with higher performance parts, like a camshaft that on gasoline would have increased exhaust pollutant emissions; thus making it "illegal" for highway use. Of course, it's only a "crime" if you get "caught," but those "pay-again-every-time-your vehicle-fails-smog-checks" are a pain in the ass not to mention the wallet. You see the bottom line, don't you? Money, lots of it! With hydrogen powering everybody's car, who would have the most to lose? Big fuckin'-brother, that's who. No more gasoline taxes, smog certification fees, failure-to-comply-fines for disconnected "smog" devices, extra charges for those devices on the car's purchase price, gas stations on every corner, smog alerts, ozone depletion, or being stranded roadside at midnight, miles from anywhere, during a rainstorm, out of gas!!! A similar type of mechanism that opens and closes retractable headlights could be implemented in a dash switch-activated system that could open a trunk lid mounted scoop that captures rain, with a flexible hose line that directs it into the main tank; either while the vehicle is in motion, or parked. Just watch the fuel gauge, and close the scoop when you see "full"!
While it may be a long time before we are able to purchase an entirely corrosion resistant, exotic-alloy engine, (factory-done to reasonably compensate for the effects of a water-derived fuel on an internal combustion engine) I am offering the fully-complete design for a hydrogen generator that will power a car--but any engine modifications I outline are only given as basic concepts. It's up to you to implement what is applicable to your particular engine. Use some initiative. Don't rely on whether I wrote it or not; if you discover a part, or a process that I haven't mentioned that will in any way protect your engine further from the effects of corrosion, use it!!! I've written this booklet to help people wake up from the big lie of having to depend on oil companies just to drive a car. If a city's busses were powered by hydrogen, they would have no grounds to charge a buck or more for fare, citing "rising fuel costs" as a factor.
In case you're wondering, "Why, if this works, isn't it being used by a lot of people?" There's no money to be made by the oil companies, stupid, I already told you; big money corrupts small minds. And then we have our society filled with just plain assholes who seem to only be here for the purpose of being nemeses for everybody creative...by saying things like: "Oh, I don't believe that," or "That doesn't really work, it's just a hoax. I saw a guy on TV that showed how that stuff burns up engines," or "How come we never hear about it if it really works?"... All the stupid fuckin idiots who have been brainwashed all their lives to believe everything they see on television as the undisputed truth!!! I drove my car down to the Los Angeles office of the Charnel Seven Eyewitness News to show them a car that actually works, telling them if they run stories on the negative mistakes people have made in attempting construction of a hydrogen- powered car, why not run a story on a car that has all the bugs worked out, that actually functions! All I got was double-talk about "people just don't care about hearing this type of stuff." Television is a major force behind the big-lie, mass-scale, public brainwashing. Government wants people to believe that everything has to cost money. Not only are they worried about losing money on hydrogen- powered transportation vehicles, they have a major concern over hydrogen-powered engines that could be used to run electricity generators for everybody's homes. The water company would be the only public utility (outside of telephones, of course) in mass demand. Collecting rain in a yard full of used 55-gallon oil drums for use as auto fuel would even cut that demand down even further!!! Building as many units as I can for personal use only, and writing this booklet, are about the only things I can "legally" do to try to help the world wake up. A hydrogen generator produces an energy potential in excess of 100 percent efficiency!!! You read it right; free energy! A car's battery starts the engine, but once it's running, the alternator takes over to charge the battery, and power the ignition system. With an onboard hydrogen generator, that alternator also powers the hydrogen extraction process, producing the energy needed to fuel the engine that runs the alternator. No external power source is needed, so as long as there is water available, the entire system is self- sufficient in operation. An extra trunk mounted battery would provide more current--if ever needed--to run everything at once without overloading the electrical system; ignition, hydrogen generator, lights, air conditioning, and your megawatt, ultra-powerful, mini- amp, stereo system that blasts "Rampage" tapes everywhere you go!!!
Make photocopies of this booklet for everyone you know to see and make use of the information it contains. The world is only a fucked-up place because "we the people" who inhabit it either make it that way, or do nothing to at least try to improve it. Water is the ultimate "renewable resource;" it'll never run out!
THE NEXT STEP
System operation: The dash-mounted switches for turning on the reactor are also wired to activate the chamber feedwater pump at the same time. When the car dies out, that signals to you that an electrode has been totally crusted over with deposits from the impure fuel water. This means the electrically-activated molecular separation process (electrolysis) has halted. These switches should also have indicator lights to let you know which one is on, and flip-up caps to guard against accidental activation. When the need arises to go to backup, turn off the switch for the "dead" electrode, as well as close it's electrical shut-off valve. The purpose of these gas valves is to keep pressurized oxygen from escaping up through the "off "electrode fittings into the hydrogen lines possibly resulting in your car becoming a "Highway Hindenburg!" Hydrogen is separated from its molecular bond with oxygen by exposing the fluid of water to direct current voltage. Hydrogen is attracted to a negative charge, while oxygen is attracted to a positive charge, this process generates heat in the chamber, so trunk placement is best with an aluminum or plywood wall built between the reactor and the rest of the available trunk space. Small cars are light on gasoline, thus cheaper to operate, but when all of a sudden the fuel becomes free, the size and weight of the car is of no concern, except for Porsche, and similar sports cars, street rods, etc. Who the hell likes being crammed like a sardine in a rolling tin coffin? Agility may be sacrificed for those into quick cars but Cadillacs will do 130 MPH for extremely long distances; try that in a Yugo and chances are you'll be in hell before I will!!!
Water is pumped through the reaction chamber and the chamber itself is positively charged, drawing the oxygen molecules out through the water return line to be vented off through the water tank's cap. The hydrogen-attracting electrode extending (insulated under the "T" fitting) into the welded-in pipes is negatively-charged. There is a dash-mounted pressure gauge that is connected before the regulator and mixer. To begin hydrogen generation, flip one of the dash-mounted switches, and wait for the gauge to show fuel line pressure, then, start, engine when pressure is shown by the gauge to exist. In mounting the unit, remember that the chamber itself is positive and most cars use a negative chassis ground, so insulated mounts must be fabricated between the positive chamber, and the negative trunk floor.
Final Note: This unit is not a concept or a theory! It is tried and proven. I designed this system at age 18 in 1983, and built more than one using "Rampage" profits for research and development. I can't sell actual working units, but nothing but death itself can stop me from distributing this booklet in the hopes that people will take initiative to wake up from the big lie of oil-dependency for auto fuel, and flood the street with hydrogen-powered cars, If enough people find out how simple it is, public pressure may someday soon be put on the government, resulting in the long overdue media exposure they're all so afraid of. Eyewitness news in L.A. didn't want to let the word out that an actual working vehicle had been built by an 18-year-old metalhead! We're supposed to be stupid in the public's eye from their point of view and that just fucking sucks!
Hydrogen and Oxygen gases do not pollute and help to clean out the carbon deposits from the engine for better mileage and less engine wear. You will notice the improved engine performance immediately.
