hybrid intrepid on ebay? BS

eBay Motors: Dodge : Intrepid (item 270270178988 end time Sep-04-08 15:36:33 PDT)

the title says 50+mpg hybrid...talks about a "hydrogen fuel system" installed but shows no pics and tells no details. anybody else want to comment? i plan to ask the buyer quite a few questions...no i dont want the car myself just feel like he's trying to pull some BS on people

Im sure its a mason jar with some bolts connected to the battery. Yes it makes hydrogen but no it does not improve gas mileage. Someone made a thread about it a few months ago and my brother actually built one even though I tried to talk some sense into him. He ended up selling his car without finding the gas mileage for a full tank but I really doubt he had any improvement.

its a scam. $500 up front with the balance in cash at pickup, zero feedback... I am certainly not going to buy it.

just my .02...

engines can run on hydrogen & LPG with little to modification to the actual "moving parts" of the engine. but there is a lot of other equipment that is needed to get the computer to play nicely with the alternative fuel...

yes, I too am doing some research... I will be making a hydrogen cell to "play" with the idea, but there is not enough info out there to make a descent system...

here is what I've been pondering...

if my car gets 20mpg (not really, but simple math) and I'm traveling 60mph (usually a lot faster) for 1 hour.

that means I'm burning 3gph of gasoline.

if I wanted to run my engine on only hydrogen, I would need something between 1-3gph of hydrogen to replace the gasoline.

I say 1-3 gallons, because I've read that hydrogen is as much as 3 times the explosive power as gasoline (in an ideal state).

I've see most guys on u-tube and other sites getting 500ml of HHO in 1 minutes (~30,000ml per hour).

if you factor out the oxygen in the mix, you are getting ~20,000ml per hour...

1 gallon is 3785.6ml...

so I need 3785.6-11356.8ml per hour, of hydrogen to run my engine...

given that the above example is using ~20-30amps of electrical power to make 500ml in 1 min... some of the more sophisticated cells could run my engine.

then all I would need is a small storage container for starting & stop and go traffic when my mileage is down to 3-5mpg for acceleration...

does that sound right?? or did I miss some physics some where??

hydrogen takes a lot more work and money than an intrepid LOL, certainly more than a few grand.

More like $750,000 per bus (prototypes)
V10 supercharged 6.8L

We have these at the CNE grounds in Toronto, Ontario and smaller vehicles are being released for road tests but they are unmarked unlike these buses.

Wow. It took me like 10 minutes to read his item description. Trying to sell his car, give you a tour, give you his life history, tell you about other cars he would like to have some day. Good thing ebay doesn't charge by the word...

When I checked he already had 19 bids. Someone must really want that tour of Alcatraz.

Tired of hearing about HHO (Brown's Gas).

The energy required for producing HHO in a car is exactly the same produced on burning it (if a 100% efficiency is achieved), so there's no remaining energy to help power the car.

In real world conditions, HHO can be burned with about 20% efficiency, so you are using 80% more energy to produce HHO than the energy the HHO is producing when burned.

So, where the IMPROVED mileage comes from?

Perpetual movement machines violate the first law of thermodynamics and they do not exist.

he sounds like a car salesman...

previous ebay ID: 209MOSTMERCIFULMOTORS

209 is the Area Code in Lodi, CA

looking at his history... he sells a lot of car parts... and cars...

eBay Motors: Geo : Metro (item 220255591221 end time Jul-12-08 16:11:43 PDT)

prior car listed on ebay... looking at pics, it looks like it is sitting in a car lot...

another car he sold on ebay...

eBay Motors: Geo : GEO (item 220243517114 end time Jun-09-08 16:02:27 PDT)

he sells geo metros for almost as much as I paid for my Intrepid...

even under his current ID, he has quite a few "hybrids" and car parts...

http://motors.shop.ebay.com/merchant...epennyauctions

he's just playing on words... pretty evident once you read a few of his auctions... he uses large text and plays off like he doesn't know why ebay won't let him post pictures...
