Looks extremely suspicious. The rectangular box looks like a sweet box and the other container from a RO Water Purifier filter canister.

What i am thinking is that the concept is to pass current through the water to induce electrolysis and use the escaping gas to be injected back in some manner to the engine combustion chamber. It should in theory introduce more oxygen and Hydrogen which is combustive . But how it would work practically is a total unknown

Edit : On re reading the weblink it is explained , but i dont think i am going any where near this contraption even on an autorickshaw

Edit 2: Reading material available at http://hhocarfuelcell.blogspot.com/. Which says that this theory works

Edit 3 : Reading material that has a conspiracy theory on the likes of kennedy assasination and water car http://www.hhocarfuelcell.com/facts/watercar.php. Interesting reading.

Above story proved to be an urban myth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley...ater_fuel_cell

Edit 4 : patents on the same http://keelynet.com/energy/garrett.htm

Today I have seen a car with "This car runs on Hydrogen, Call:XXXXX"
I called up the person and he explained me all about running a car with any of the fuel with some addition of Hydrogen to it.
This is a kit producing Hydrogen to get the FE increase atleast 30 to 40%, even the the pickup increasing by 1.5 times. Available in two variants, one is about 13k another one will be around 18k. Weight of the kit is about seven kg and installation will be in boot space. No RTO registration is required as we are not altering the fuel.

After this sort of information I am not at all interested to fit this kit, but want to know the actual fact. So gurus pls give some information about this kind of kit.

Water injection was the rage in the US in the early 1980's. Claims were similar to the advt. It was water + fuel, Supposedly it made the power stroke longer.

It went away after some time, I guess there was a major reduction in engine life.
