Flashback: Hydrogen Fuel from Water Patented by Stanley Meyer

Controversial Invention - In the race to develop eco-friendly vehicles, numerous motor vehicle manufacturers are vying to create vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells. Looking back, we can trace the origins of this technology to Stanley Meyer, an American inventor born on August 24, 1940. From a young age, Meyer was known for his innovative spirit and constant pursuit of new ideas..

However, despite his groundbreaking discovery and the patent he obtained under the US Patent number 4.936.961, which involved using hydrogen fuel derived from water, Stanley Meyer did not achieve financial success, fame, or fortune. In fact, his journey tragically came to an end.

According to a search on CarThrottle and Detik, Meyer's patent titled "Method for the Production of a Fuel Gas" was filed on June 26, 1990. In this patent, Meyer claimed that his invention, popularly known as the Water Fuel Cell, could separate water (H2O) into hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2).

Meyer's findings, along with detailed descriptions and accompanying drawings required for patent approval, can be found on Rexresearch. To demonstrate the viability of his invention, Meyer even released a video titled "It Runs on Water," showcasing the car successfully powered by water fuel cell.

Meyer converted a 1.6-liter Volkswagen (VW) engine to run on water instead of gasoline. By replacing the spark plug with an injection system, he introduced steam into the cylinder, which was then split into hydrogen and oxygen. These gases entered the combustion chamber, mimicking the operation of a conventional engine. Meyer claimed that his invention enabled a car to travel from Los Angeles to New York using only 83 liters of water.

However, when Prof. Michael Laughton and two of his collegues from Queen Mary, University of London, offered to test Meyer's invention as an expert witness, Meyer evaded the opportunity by providing various excuses. Eventually, after evaluating the testimonies of three experts, it was concluded that Meyer's "discovery" was not revolutionary. Subsequently, an Ohio Court declared Meyer's patented Water Fuel Cell as fraudulent in 1996.

Tragically, two years later, on March 23, 1998, Meyer was found dead after a meeting with two potential investors from Belgium. Dr. William R. Adrion, who conducted the autopsy, determined that Meyer's death resulted from a cerebral aneurysm caused by high blood pressure. This leaves a lot of unanswered questions to date.

As quoted from CarThrottle, but many people who knew Meyer thinks that he was murdered, as his invention could have massively paved the way for free energy. Other evidence that he was murdered was that Meyer’s patents attracted much unwanted attention from governments, mysterious visitors form overseas, and lucrative buyout offers.
It is important to refrain from speculating on the authenticity of Meyer's invention or the circumstances surrounding his death. However, his story serves as a poignant reminder that groundbreaking inventions with the potential to impact humanity on a large scale often face both admiration and skepticism. Until such inventions can be scientifically validated, they may receive not only accolades but also criticism, and tragically, even personal hardships.😢 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARTHROTTLE ]
