And who was saying "you're nuts?" It certainly wasn't the engineers - they were busy building aircraft carriers, cargo planes, the X-1 and microprocessors. I don't recall any of them being built by a couple of good 'ol boys in their garage.A jet that can fly faster then the speed of sound? your nuts! A plane big enough to carry tanks around? you got to be nuts. A boat big enough for jets to land on? your nuts.... A computer in every home? your nuts.

pc didn't catch on till the software (ms-dos & apple's mac) came out.. mac's first few pc's were wooden boxes.. ah the days..
needless to say they didn't invent the pc concept, but from their garages they made it a house hold name.. this guy may have something.. even if it were half what he was saying it's still impressive..
i know some of my wacky friends have started splitting up water into some hydrogen & oxygen and directly porting it into their engines.. they've seen modest improvements of 5-10 mpg so you never know..
Yes, that’s the way it typically goes. A never-ending supply of rubes willing to throw their money at this type of venture will always exist. On the plus side, the original developer gets to pursue a dream and the rubes get to live in hope of eventual wealth that’s always just out of reach.Sadly, the patent office will likely issue him some patents, regardless of any technical merits. He'll then get funding from some rubes and "develop it further" for a while. Then when it fails to perform, it'll quietly go away and then the conspiracy guys will claim "big oil" suppressed it.
