Cameron McElwrath is the IT manager at Lincoln College in Lincoln. He said he spent years developing and building a car engine that runs half on gasoline, half on H2O. He said he drives it to work every day.
He said he built it with the help of his father.
"Just me and my dad in a garage," McElwrath said.
It might seem like an urban legend, but McElwrath said it works. He fills up a tube in his trunk with clean water from a jug. The water is sucked through a tube into a box which splits the molecules, sending hydro gas up another tube. The left over oxygen goes out the exhaust pipe.
You might think that cracking H2O molecules would be dangerous because of the hydrogen, especially if the car crashed. But McElwrath said it's perfectly safe.
"It's water, it doesn't turn, we don't crack it until nano seconds before it goes into the intake," he said.
McElwrath said he's finally done working on it.
"My ultimate goal is to sell this technology to a car manufacturer, diesel manufacturer who manufactures either gasoline or diesel engines. I would like to get this technology on the road for everybody," McElwrath said.
He said he's built an engine that only runs on water, but he needed another year and a lot more money to put it in a car. He says he wanted to show off this idea before another inventor beat him to the punch.
