Detroit Says…

# The Society of Automotive Engineers of Troy, Michigan (=”Detroit”)
This is a huge organization with over 121,000 members! The list below shows a collection of references found in their official publications of the past 35 years (today it is published online – from which it is obvious that THEY HAVE KNOWN all about it [source: Google – this info appears on many websites and I couldn’t tell who’s the original compiler]:
• Publication #740187, February 1974: Adding hydrogen to gasoline resulted in significant efficiency improvements due to the extension of the lean operating limit.
• Publication #740600, February 1974: A compact onboard hydrogen generator has been developed for use with a hydrogen-enriched gasoline internal combustion engine.
• Publication #810348, February 1981: Adding hydrogen to gasoline showed a potential for very low pollutant emissions with increased energy efficiency.
• Publication #830897, April 1989: Adding hydrogen to gasoline produces improvements in engine efficiency and emissions due to accelerated flame speed and combustion rate.
• Publication #960603, February 1996: Adding hydrogen to gasoline produces improvements in engine efficiency and emissions, due to accelerated combustion.
• Publication #2000-01-2206, June 2000: Adding hydrogen to gasoline can reduce exhaust emissions and increase efficiency. A large reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions can be achieved without a catalytic converter due to very lean operation under certain conditions.
• Publication #2002-01-2196, July 2002: Adding hydrogen to gasoline increases the flame speed at all gasoline air/fuel ratios, so engine operation at very lean mixtures is possible.
• Publication #2003-01-0630, March 2003: Adding hydrogen to gasoline extended the lean limit of engine operation, resulting in greater efficiency and reduced emissions, both hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides.
• Publication #2003-32-0011, September 2003: Adding hydrogen to gasoline resulted in improved engine.
• Publication #2004-01-0972, March 2004: Adding hydrogen to gasoline results in lower emissions and a significant increase in engine efficiency.
• Publication #2004-01-1270, March 2004: Adding hydrogen to gasoline produces improvements in engine efficiency and emissions.
• Publication #2004-01-1851, June 2004: Adding hydrogen to gasoline reduced knock due to accelerated fuel burn and shortened combustion period.
• Publication #2005-01-0232, April 2005: Adding hydrogen to gasoline produces lower emissions due to increased flame speed and resultant accelerated fuel burn.
• Publication #2005-01-0251, April 2005: Adding hydrogen to gasoline can extend the lean limits of the air/fuel ratio.

6. Some of the many Registered Patents from the USA, UK and Australia:
• 1918 – This is the oldest hydrogen-on-demand known (to me) patent FOR VEHICLE USE! Note the use of the term “Hydro-Oxygen Generators” used at the beginning of page 2 to describe the entire water-fuel industry. American inventor Charles H. Frazer filed this patent, number 1,262,034 on April 18, 1916 (the final approval was granted by the U.S. Patent Office 2 years later, on April 9, 1918. He described the purpose of the device to be: “In this manner, a very low grade fuel may be used and by properly setting the valves, the proper supply of gases may be added to render the fuel thoroughly combustible.”
• 1930 – Rudolf Erren – Erren engine – GB patent GB364180 – Improvements in and relating to internal combustion engines using a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen as fuel.
• 1939 – Rudolf Erren – Erren engine – US patent 2,183,674 – Internal combustion engine using hydrogen as fuel.
• 1980 – Charles T. Weber – U.S. Patent 4,344,831 “Apparatus for the Generation of Gaseous Fuel”.
• 2005 – Australian Patent AU-2005100722-A4 – granted by the Australian Patent Office to Robert Michael Roberts and Chau Kin Nam. Some relate it to the Joe Cell. In part, it looks similar to the devices shown experimented by Stanley Meyer.

7. Additional Patents:
• There are at least 40 patents in the last few decades alone, we are collecting the patents and will add them here.

8. California Environmental Engineering (CEE)
“CEE feels that the result of this test verifies that this technology is a viable source for reducing emissions and fuel consumption on large diesel engines.” ORIGINAL NEEDED

9. The American Hydrogen Association Test Lab
“Emissions test results indicate that a decrease of toxic emissions was realized.” Zero emissions were observed on CO (carbon oxide). ORIGINAL NEEDED

10. Additional data based on and other sources including – ORIGINAL DUCUMENTS NEEDED:

In 1974 John Houseman and D.J. Cerini of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, produced a report for the Society of Automotive Engineers titled “On-Board Hydrogen Generator for a Partial Hydrogen Injection Internal Combustion Engine” (available at” and F.W. Hoehn and M.W. Dowy, also of the Jet Propulsion Lab, prepared a report for the 9th Intersociety Energy Conversion Engineering Conference (held August 26-30, 1974 in San Francisco), titled “Feasibility Demonstration of a Road Vehicle Fueled with Hydrogen Enriched Gasoline.” (This research utilized onboard storage tanks to supply the hydrogen combustion enhancement.)

In 1993, researchers Y. Jamal and M.L.Wyszynski of the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom, released a review titled “Onboard Generation of Hydrogen-Rich Gaseous Fuels – a Review” in which they concluded: (3.) Hydrogen supplementation of gasoline combustion has been shown to yield reduction in fuel consumption. (4.) Hydrogen-rich gaseous fuels can be burned under ultra lean conditions to yield very low NOx emissions without running into lean flammability limit problems. and (5.) The lean burning conditions give possibilities for very low CO emissions.

In 1995, newer investigations have highlighted the potential for pollutant reduction. Research performed by scientists at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom, released a study at the HYPOTHESIS Conference at the University of Cassino, Italy in which it was presented that “hydrogen, when used as a fractional additive at extreme lean engine operation, yields benefits in improved combustion stability and reduced nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbon emissions.”

In 1997, similar results have been presented by a team of scientists representing the Department of Energy Engineering, Zhejiang University, China, at an international conference held by the University of Calgary. Practical tests have been performed by California Environmental Engineering (CEE), The American Hydrogen Association Test Lab and Corrections Canada in which reduction in toxic exhaust emissions and fuel consumption were realized.

11. More evidence is flowing in and I will be posting them here.

Happy Mileage!

This is good…thanks for sharing

  15. Hi Williammccauley,
    Speaking of which, The Detroit School District is making an effort to connect to the minority students and minority businesses in the community.
    BTW great blogpost
