Stan Meyer is one of those inventors that sparked controversy, particularly in the scientific community. He lived in the town of Grove City, Ohio where he performed his research. Sadly it would also be the place he died an untimely death.
In the 1970's Meyer started researching and experimenting with trying to extract the Hydrogen and Oxygen from water. He had a real desire to see America free from the fossil fuel addiction it was tied too.
In conventional electroloysis one uses, an electrolyte in water to extract H and O gases, from water using large amounts of electrical energy (and releasing lots of waste heat). Electroloysis uses more than 3 times as much electrical energy to produce the H an O gas.
Meyer found a revolutionary process to extract large amounts of Browns gas (HHO) from normal tap water.

Stanley Meyers process has turned normal electroloysis on its head. His invention uses low amounts of electrical energy (less than 0.5 Amp), and almost produced no normal bye products of excess heat. His technique "fractals" normal tap water and produces large amounts of hydrogen and oxygen on demand. His measurements showed a 1700% greater efficiency than conventional electrolysis. The process uses AC pulses(instead of DC) at specific frequencies (high voltage and frequencies). Those who are prepared to take his work seriously believe he may have tapped into Zero Point Energy, in a similar way to other inventors, like: Alexander Chernetski, Jim Griggs and Nicola Tesla are believed to have in some of the alternate energy circles.
The main-stream scientific community has largely slated his claims, (since they seem to be so far outside conventional thinking and wisdom). Most stated that if the device worked as specified, it would violate both the first and second laws of thermodynamics, and would be a perpetual motion machine. This seems to be strange logic, since all he claimed was that he could run a motor car off water instead of gasoline. (exchanging fuels) The way he extracted the energy from the water by producing browns gas, is different but not perpetual motion.
Although scientists largely ignored and ridiculed his work, he in turn focused rather on registering patents. Even here he faced massive resistance, taking many years in some cases to have his patents registered.
Meyer took his discoveries and worked on converting a beach buggy to run on nothing but water. The buggy had only a tank for water, with no hydrogen tank, or petrol (gas) tank. The buggy had a "water splitter" instead of spark plugs, that fractures the water into hydrogen and oxygen gas, that would then be burned as fuel.
The following video clip shows the now famous TV News clip that caused a stir when first aired.

In 1996, inventor Stanley Meyer was sued by two investors to whom he had sold dealerships, offering the right to do business in Water Fuel Cell technology. His car was due to be examined by the expert witness Michael Laughton, Professor of Electrical Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London and Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. However, Meyer made what Professor Laughton considered a "lame excuse" on the days of examination and did not allow the test to proceed. According to Meyer the technology was patent pending and under investigation by the patent office, the Department of Energy and the military. His "water fuel cell" was later examined by three witnesses in court who found that there "was nothing revolutionary about the cell at all and that it was simply using conventional electrolysis". The court found Meyer guilty of "gross and egregious fraud" and ordered him to repay the two investors their $25,000
In March 1998 he died in the parking lot of a restaurant in his home town of Grove City, Ohio. Sharks came a week later and stole the the dune buggy and all of his experimental equipment, according to his brother, Stephen. The "official" version of events is that Stanley Meyer died suddenly on 21 March 1998 after dining at a restaurant. An autopsy report by the Franklin County, Ohio coroner concluded that Meyer had died of a cerebral aneurysm.
"In this section, it reads: "Decedent supposedly at lunch with N.A.T.O. officials at a Cracker Barrel diner. The group made an opening toast with cranberry juice, immediately after which, decedent ran outside followed by his brother, then vomited violently and told his brother that he had been poisoned."
I find it interesting that the coroner writes, "supposedly." I wonder how many other reports he puts "supposedly" on. It is an unprofessional and unusual statement of disbelief. To me this is the coroner's way of saying to the public, "it is doubtful," which is completely unnecessary and makes me feel like he is trying to lead you away from believing the material in this section which he was forced to write truthfully. "
His brother and many close to him at the time plus various conspiracy theorists insist that he was poisoned to suppress the technology, and that oil companies and the United States government were involved in his death.

The goal of this web site is to explain the science behind Stanley Meyers water fuel cell. As a group we will study his theory, patents, and related information. The objective will be to replicate the water fuel cell. The completion of our work will be proof to the world of the validity of the water fuel cell. www.waterfuelcell.org

All I can say is Steve, if history is anything to go by then please watch your back and make sure you are protected, as the big oil and energy companies rather than treating you as a hero, will be after your idea and blood.
