Fuel processor

Take a two stroke engine and let it run to warm it up. Then switch off the petrol supply and open the supply from the reactor. The reactor works by bubbling the hot exhaust gases through the reactor´s contents causing the mix to evaporate. The evaporated mixture which is relatively cold is sucked back by the vacuum within the engine, along a tube within another tube containing the hot exhaust gas. Hot gas in one direction and cold gas in another creates an electric field which gives the gas a charge, creating a plasma. This charged gas is then piped into the engine as fuel.

The reactor contains a mix of 10-20% petrol and the rest is cola or coffee or even water, so long as there some carbon-based fuel in there. This means the amount of oil-based fuel required to run the engine is drastically reduced. The nice part about this is that unlike other hydrogen based systems that require electrolysis to generate the fuel (which itself requires energy), this one looks like it only needs to be kick started with hot exhaust gases to get the reaction going.

The saddest part is that the original inventor Paul Pantone got set up when trying to sell his idea to an investment company and is now locked up in a Utah State Hospital.
