You Can Run Your Car On Water!
Here is the deal.
properly “injected” into the engine, will mix with and become part of the
fuel mixture. Now the water in
itself is not used as a fuel. It is injected into the engine for the interaction and
reaction it creates with the combustion process.
The effect of injected water is beneficial in 3 ways:
It acts as an engine cooler
It cleans the engine
It acts to
effectively raise the “Octane” rating of the gas you are using.
effect is different than the effect your radiator has.
By injecting the water into the engine, by mixing it into the air/fuel
mixture, it reduces the temperature of not only the air coming into your engine,
but when combustion does accrue in the cylinder, some of the heat that would
have gone into the engine is absorbed by the water.
effect happens when the water absorbs the heat of the combustion.
In effect it acts to “steam” clean the inside of your engine.
Now the above
two things can greatly add to the life and health of your engine.
But the number one reason folks use a water Injection system is the
effect it has on the “Octane” rating of the gas.
A water injection system will, just by adding water to the air fuel mix,
take 91 octane to an effective rating of over 100 octane.
doesn’t everyone use Water injection! Because, most folks don’t need it.
Remember that your car gets no benefit from an Octane rating above and
beyond what it can use. So only
folks that have a high compression or turbo charged engine really benefit from a
water injection system. It can also
help folks that have a knocking or pinging problem when towing.
Why don’t all
these folks have one already? It is
because they make the mistake of letting the price scare them off.
Some systems go for as much as $800.00.
Yes, folks forget that by installing a water injection system, in
exchange for a onetime expense, they no longer need those expensive bottles of
octane boosters. All they need to
add is water.
How does this
matter? Remember the $300.00 per
year conservative figure we used in part one?
Let me ask you this. Would
you rather spend $800.00 one time and one time only, or spend $300.00 a year,
year after year, for all the years you own your car?
Also after spending that $300.00 per year, you only have the fun you had
with your car to show for it. But
spend that one time $800.00 and you still
had the fun, got to use water injection that helps your car last longer, added
to the resale value of your car….. Stopped buying anything for octane
boosters, and as the years go on you are just saving more money……
this stuff really work? Yes, I have
it on my own car. About one month
ago I installed an Aquamist system on my car.
The system we put on was their basic system 1A.
It has a listed price of about $400.00.
system came with everything needed to install the system.
The installation was very straightforward and easy to do. I would say
that if you can do your own tune ups, you can do this installation.
car is a turbo charged Saab, that has almost 300,00 miles on it, and is about 18
years old. It does have an
electronic engine control system, and needs at least 91 octane gas.
If it gets better then 91 octane, the engine management system will let
the car put out more power (this is true of most modern turbo or high
effects instantly surprised me. Can
you say WOW? It really affected the
performance of the car. In addition
now that it has been on for a month, the car just runs better.
Why? The system has been
cleaning the inside of the engine for a month.
this time I am using about one gallon of water for every 16 gallons of gas.
had the system installed by my mechanic (actually we both did it.
We had a mechanic do it and go over the car, so the evaluation would be
fair). The reason I bring this up
is that my mechanic flat out told me he knows about water injection and it does
work, but he never felt it was worth the money.
I asked if he ever used one. The
answer was no. After we got the system on and tested it, my mechanic took the
car for a spin. He came back
totally amazed and sold on water injection.
In fact he is getting one for his car.
if you have an Octane related problem, ask yourself, do you want to spend all
that money year after year with nothing to show for it, or do you want to switch
over to water? If it helps, all the
manufacturers of octane boosters I talked to agreed that a water injection
system was a better economical solution for the person that is currently putting
octane booster in their car on every tank full.
