An essay on Energy Supression, by Christopher Walter. Lots of items described in here.

Time magazine (Aust) 17 july 1995 (p.46) are rounding up the future
technologies that are going to severely change the world as we know it. They
correctly point out that a change in the usage of energy would have a
massive impact, but then promise "The first company to design an affordable
car that doesn't foul the atmosphere will race past it's competitors." Not
only are they totaly wrong, but they're probably lying. The simple fact is
the technology has been with us for most of this past century, it's just
that it wouldn't be economicaly rational (for the oil companies) to allow
the public to utilise it.
My story began late one night driving home listening to talk back radio,
when somebody piped up that they'd been working on a solar-powered car out
at the local airport, and it was ready to go and as cheap and as safe as an
average family car - except that you would only need about five dollars
worth of fuel per year to get it started. The startled D.J. then asked when
were we likely to see it in the market place, and the engineer cooly replied
"probably never, I'd say the oil companies will buy us out in a flash." I
nearly crashed my car- what on earth was going on here? The next day I rang
the airport to find out who was doing the testing only to find out from an
assertive voice, "there are no automobiles being tested here and there never
has been." Fine, the dead end proved to be the spark of detirmination to
send me on my investigative way.
The next encounter was about a year later involving a friend who knew a guy
who invented a lawn mower that ran on water. Sceptical but excited, I said I
wanted to meet the man and she came back a few days later quite upset to
find he'd recently opened his front door to a shot gun blast in the face,
the dead inventor had been solidly drinking for the past six months since he
came home with a million or so dollars and word to the family that he didn't
want to discuss his engines again. O.K. - that one seemed weird, maybe he
was some dodgy businessman or something. I still needed more.
More came in the form of an article in the Melbourne Age (13/7/93 p.5)
introducing the "ozone safe induction" system, a little black box that was
added to your engine that cut fuel usage by up to two-thirds with a
corresponding reduction in pollution.
Oz Smart Technologies was the name of the firm, and Mike Holland the
inventor that I talked to about his supposed breakthrough. "Yeah, the U.S.
military just flew out some Generals and stuff and they want to buy it, and
Nissan just offered me five million dollars but I want to develop it in
Australia." Yeah but, does it work? Apparantly it did, the E.P.A. told him
off the record it was the best design of it's kind they'd ever seen, along
with a bunch of techies from Swinburne University who'd done all the
testing, but the media continued to consider the device a bit of a hoax and
the company simply does not exist anymore - yep they just dissapeared
My research today tells me that Mike Holland's invention was probably of the
"Improved fuel efficiency" variety simply burning fuel in a more efficient
manner, nothing terribly difficult. Other well known developments are of the
"car running on water" kind, usually involving electrical current running
through the water to extract and then burn the hydrogen. Some of the more
interesting involve the use of magnets, sometimes tuned to exact frequencies
that take energy from the ambient atmosphere.
Since meeting Mike Holland I have mnanaged to collect quite a list of energy
inventions that have somehow avoided being utilised in the market place. You
may not beleive they all work, but it would be very difficult to claim that
all of them are fabrications, still the evidence is here - you decide
* HYDROGEN POWER
Yull Brown - from Sydney Australia developed a method of extracting hydrogen
from water in 1978 and utilising it as a car fuel and fuel for welders.
After much publicity (see The Bulletin (Aust) Aug 22, 1989) he had managed
to raise over 2 million dollars but has failed to fully develop his
Francisco Pacheco - an inventor from Bolivia created the "Pacheco Bi-Polar
Autoelectric Hydrogen Generator" (US PAT #5,089,107) which separates
hydrogen from seawater. He has built successful prototypes that have fueled
a car, a motorcycle, a lawn mower, a torch, a boat, and most recently in
1990 he energised an entire home in West Milford. After many conferences
(including U.N.) and public exhibitions proving the inventions worth, the
wider community is still unable to utilise this technology.
Edward Estevel - from Spain developed a classic 'water to auto engine'
system in the late 1960's extracting the hydrogen out of water to use as
fuel. This system was highly heralded, then sank among other such 'high
hope' hydrogen systems amid rumours of foul play.
Sam Leach - of Los Angeles developed a revolutionary hydrogen extraction
process during the mid seventies. The unit easily extracted free hydrogen
from water and was small enough to fit under the hood of automobiles. In
1976 two independent labs in LA tested this generator with perfect results.
Mr M.J. Mirkin who began the Budget car rental system purchased the rights
to the device from the inventor who was said to be very concerned about his
Rodger Billings - of Provo, Utah headed a group of inventors that developed
a system converting ordinary cars to run on Hydrogen. Instead of using heavy
hydrogen tanks, he used metal alloys called Hydrides, to store vast amounts
of hydrogen. When hot exhaust gases passed through these Hydride containers
it released the gas to burn in the standard engines. Billings estimated the
conversion would cost around US$500 and greatly improve fuel consumption.
Archie Blue - an inventor from Christchurch, New Zealand developed a car
that runs purely on water by the extraction of hydrogen. An alleged offer of
500 million dollars from "Arab interests" was not enough to convince him to
sell but never-the-less he has been unable to take his engine to the market
* ELECTRIC ENGINES
Wayne Henthron - from Los Angeles built an "Electromatic Auto" in 1976 that
managed to regenerate its own electricity. In normal stop and go driving it
gave several hundred miles of service between recharges. The system worked
by the wiring of the batteries to act as capacitors once the car was moving
along with four standard auto alternators acting to keep the batteries
charged. With little official interest in his system the inventor resolved
to make the car available to the public to do so, is now involved with the
World Federation of Science and Engineering - 15532 Computer Lane,
Huntington Beach, CA, 92649.
Joseph R. Zubris - developed in 1969 an electric car circuit design (US PAT
#3,809,978) that he estimated cost him $100 a year to operate. Using an old
ten horse electric truck motor, he worked out a unique system to get peak
performance from his old 1961 Mercury engine that he ran from this power
plant. The device actually cut energy drain on electric car starting by 75%,
and by weakening excitation after getting started, produced a 100% mileage
gain over conventional electric motors. The inventor was shocked to find the
lack of reaction from larger business interests, and so in the early
seventies began selling licenses to interested smaller concerns for $500.
Last known address was Zubris Electrical Company, 1320 Dorchester Ave,
Boston, Ma, 02122.
Richard Diggs - developed at an inventors workshop (I.W. international) his
"Liquid Electricity Engine" that he believed could power a large truck for
25,000 miles from a single portable unit of his electrical fuel. Liquid
electricity violated a number of the well known physical laws that the
inventor pointed out. The inventor was also aware of the profound impact the
invention could have upon the world's economy - if it could be developed.
B. Von Platen - a 65 year old Swedish inventor made a major breakthrough in
the field of Thermo-electric engines with his "Hot and Cold Engine" - based
on the fact that wires of different metals produce electricity if they are
joined and heated, the inventors secret breakthrough is said to give more
than 30% more efficiency than regular motors, and with a radioactive isotope
for power (hmmm?!) it could be completely free from fossil fuels. Volvo of
Sweden bought the rights to this in 1975.
* STEAM ENGINES
Oliver Yunick - developed a super efficient steam engine in 1970
(pop.Sci.Dec.1970) able to compete admirably with combustion engines.
DuPont Laboratories - built one of the most advanced steam engines in late
1971 using a recyclable fluid of the freon family. It is assumed to contain
no need for an external condensor, valves, or tubes. (Pop.Sci.Jan1972)
William Bolon - from Rialto, California, developed an unusual steam engine
design in 1971, that was said to get up to 50 miles to the gallon. The
engine used only 17 moving parts and weighed less than 50 pounds and
eliminated the usual transmission and drive train in an automatic. After
much publicity, the inventors factory was fire bombed with damages totaling
$600,000 . Letters to the Whitehouse were ignored so the inventor finally
gave up and let Indonesian interests have the design.
* AIR POWER
Roy J. Meyers - from LA built an air powered car in 1931. (air has been used
for years to power localised underground mine engines) Myers, an engineer,
built a 114lb, 6 cylinder radial air engine that produced over 180 HP.
Newspaper articles at the time reported that the vehicle could cruise
several hundred miles at low speeds.
Vittorio Sorgato - of Milan, Italy also created a very impressive air
powered vehicle in the 70's using compressed air stored as a liquid. After a
great deal of initial interest from Italian sources his invention is now all
Robert Alexander - from Montebello, Ca. spent 45 days and around $500 to put
together a car (US PAT #3913004) based on a small 7/8ths 12 v-motor that
provided the initial power. Once going , a hydraulic and air system took
over and recharged the small electric energy drain. The inventor and his
partner were determined that the auto industry would not bury their "super
power" system. To no avail.
Joseph P Troyan - designed an air powered flywheel that could propel an
automobile for 2c a mile. Using a principle of "ratio amplification of
motion" in a closed system, the Troyan motor (US PAT # 040011) was easily
attached to electric generators for pollution-free variable power systems.
David McClintock - created his free energy device known as the "McClintock
Air Motor" (US PAT #2,982,26100) which is a cross between a diesel engine
with three cylinders with a compression ratio of 27 to 1, and a rotary
engine with solar and plenary gears. It burns no fuel, but becomes
self-running by driving it's own air compressor.
* MAGNETIC ENERGY
John W. Keeley - developed a car in the 1920's using principles similar to
Nikola Tesla's, drawing harmonic magnetic energies from the planet itself.
The electric car ran from high frequency electricity that was received when
he simply broadcast the re-radiated atmospheric energy from a unit on his
house roof. GM and the other Detroit oil "powers" offered the inventor 35
million dollars which was turned down when they would not guarantee to
market the engine. Henry Ford - later bought and successfully shelved the
Harold Adams - of Lake Isabella, California, worked out a motor thought to
be similar to Keeley's. It was demonstrated for many persons, including
Naval scientists around the late 1940's before it to "disappeared" from our
Dr Keith E. Kenyon - of Van Nuys, California discovered a discrepancy in
long accepted laws relating to electric motor magnets, and so built a
radically different motor that could theoretically run a car on a very small
amount of electrical current. When demonstrated to physicists and engineers
in 1976 those present admitted that it worked remarkably well but because it
was beyond the 'accepted' laws of physics they chose to ignore it.
Bob Teal - of Madison, Florida was a retired electronics engineer when he
invented his Magna-Pulsion Engine which ran by means of six tiny
electromagnets and a secret timing device. Requiring no fuel, the engine
emitted no gases. It was so simple in design it required very little
maintanence and a small motorcycle battery was enough power to get it
started. The engine has been met with little else but skepticism.
Lester J. Hendershot - built his Hendershot Generator in the late 1920's
largely through trial and error. He wove together a number of flat coils of
wire and placed stainless steel rings, sticks of carbon and permanent
magnets in various positions as an experiment. To his surprise it actually
produced current. The generator raised considerable attention at the time.
Howard Johnson - developed a motor thats power is generated purely by
magnetism. It took six years of legal hassles to patent his design (US PAT
#4,151,431) - more information is available from the "Permanent Magnet
Research Institute" P.O. Box 199, Blacksburg, Virginia 24063. He is
currently offering licensing rights.
Edwin V. Gray - developed in the early seventies an engine that uses no fuel
and produces no waste, The engine that runs itself is U.S. Pat #3,890,548.
* PETROLEUM ADDITIVES
Guido Franch - from Michigan U.S.A. began demonstrating in the mid seventies
his "water-to-gas miracle" a fuel he created by adding to water a small
quantity of "conversion powder" which was easily processed from coal. He
claimed it could be processed for a few cents per gallon if mass produced.
The fuel was tested by Chemists at Havoline Chemical of Michigan and the
local University, and both concluded it worked more efficiently than
gasoline. Franch continued to put on demonstrations for years but said the
auto manufacturers, Government, and private companies just weren't
interested in his revolutionary fuel.
Dr Alfred R. Globus - working for United International Research developed a
Hydro-fuel mixture around the mid-seventies. The fuel was a mixture of 45%
gasoline, 50% or more of water, and small percentages of United's
"Hydrelate" which acted as a bonding agent. It was estimated that a hundred
million gallons of fuel could be saved per day if this fuel were utilised
but alas nobody seemed interested.
John Andrews - a Portuguese chemist who in 1974 developed a fuel additive
that enabled ordinary gasoline to be mixed with water reducing fuel costs
down to 2c a gallon. After successfully demonstrating the substance,
impressed Navy officials when going to negotiate for the formula found the
inventor missing and his lab ransacked.
Water and Alcohol Motor - Jean Chambrin, an engineer in Paris ran his
private cars on a mixture of denatured alcohol and water. The inventor /
mechanical engineer claimed his motor design could be mass produced at a
fraction of the cost of present engines. He received nothing but publicity
that led him to take great precautions in regard to his personnel security.
Mavrin D. Martin - from the University of Arizona developed in 1977 a "fuel
reformer" catalytic reactor that was estimated to double mileage. The device
was designed to cut exhaust emissions by mixing water with Hydro-carbon
fuels to produce an efficient Hydrogen, Methane, Carbon-Monoxide fuel.
* IMPROVING FUEL EFFICIECNY
Edward La Force - from Vermont U.S.A. designed with his brother Robert, a
highly efficient engine that burnt all the usually wasted heavier gasoline
molecules. The 'Los Angeles Examiner' (Dec. 29, 1974) reported that the
cams, timing and so on were altered on stock Detroit engines. These
modifications not only eliminated most of the pollution from the motor but
by completely burning all the fuel, the mileage was usually doubled. After
much publicity the US EPA examined the cars and found the motor designs were
not good enough. Few people believed the EPA including a number of Senators
who brought up the matter in a Congressional hearing in March 1975. The
result was still silence.
Eric Cottell - was one of the pioneers of ultrasonic fuel systems. This
involved using sonic transducers to 'vibrate' existing fuels down to much
smaller particles, making it burn up to 20% more efficiently. Cottell then
went on to discover that super fine S-ionised water could be mixed perfectly
with up to 70% oil or gas in these systems, this was followed by much
publicity (e.g. Newsweek, June 17,1974) and then, once again - silence.
L. Mills. Beam - had his super-mileage carburetor bought out in the 1920's.
In the late 60's he worked out a catalytic vegetable compound that produced
the same super mileage results. In principle it was nothing more than a
method of using the hot exhaust gases of an engine to vapourise the liquid
gas being burned. By rearranging the molecules of gas and diesel, he was
able to triple mileage rates, while obtaining better combustion, mileage and
emission control. He was refused and rejected by U.S. State and Federal Air
Pollution and Environmental Pollution agencies and was finally forced to
sell his formula abroad in the mid-seventies just to survive.
John W. Gulley - of Gratz Kentucky managed 115 mpg from his 8 cylinder Buick
using a similar vapourising method as that employed by L.M. Beam. "Detroit
interests" bought and suppressed the device in 1950.
SHELL research of London - produced a 'Vapipe' unit in the early seventies
that also vapourised the petroleum at around 40 degrees centigrade, and used
a sophisticated pressure loss reduction system, but alas was not marketed
because it did not meet Federal emission standards.
Russell Bourke - designed an engine in 1932 with only two moving parts. He
connected two pistons to a refined "Scotch Yoke" crankshaft and came up with
an engine that was superior in most respects to any competitive engine. His
design burned any cheap carbon based fuel and delivered great mileage and
performance. Article after article was published acclaiming his engine but
once again, to no avail. "The Bourke Engine Documentary" is the revealing
book the inventor assembled just before his death.
* NEW FUELS.
Clayton J. Querles - from Lucerne Valley, California took a 10,000 mile trip
across the country in his 1949 Buick on $10 worth of carbide by building a
simple carbide generator which worked on the order of a miners lamp. He
claimed that half a pound of acetylene pressure was sufficient to keep his
car running, but because acetylene was dangerous, he put a safety valve on
his generator and ran the outlet gas through water to ensure there would be
no 'blow back'. The inventor also toyed successfully with methods of fuel
vapourisation. (see Sun-Telegram 11/2/74.)
Joseph Papp - built the highly regarded Papp engine in the 60's that could
run on a 15 cents an hour secret combination of expandable gases. Instead of
burning fuel, this engine used electricity to expand the gas in hermetically
sealed cylinders. The first prototype was a simple ninety horsepower Volvo
engine with upper end modifications. Attaching the Volvo pistons to pistons
fitting the sealed cylinders, the engine worked perfectly with an output of
three hundred horsepower. The inventor claimed it would cost about twenty
five dollars to charge each cylinder every sixty thousand miles. The idea
has gotten nowhere amid accusations of suppression by the media.
G.A. Moore. - one of the most productive inventors of carburetors, he held
some 17,000 patents of which 250 were related to the automobile and it's
carburetion. Industry today relies on his air brakes and fuel injection
systems, it continues to completely ignore his systems for reducing
pollution, gaining more mileage and improving overall engine efficiency.
More info from "The Works of George Arlington Moore" published by the
Madison Company. (See US PAT #'s 1,633,791 to 2,123,485 for 17 interesting
Joseph Bascle - created the Bascle carburetor in the mid 50's. The
carburetor raised mileage by 25% and reduced pollution by 45%. It's
inventor, a well known Baton Rouge researcher remodified every carburetor in
the local Yellow Cab fleet, shortly after his arrival there.
Kendig Carburetors - were originally hand made for racing cars by a small
group of mechanics in Los Angeles in the early seventies under the title of
Variable Venture Carburetors. Eventually a young college student bought one
of their less sophisticated prototypes for his old Mercury "gas hog", when
he entered it in a Californian air pollution run - he won easily - not only
did the carburetor reduce pollution, it gave almost twice the mileage.
Within a week the student was told to remove the carburetor as it was not
approved by the Air Resources Board. The simpler Kendig model was due for
production in 1975 but has yet to be produced.
C.N. Pogue - from Winnipeg, Canada, developed a carburetor (US PAT#
2,026,789) in the late 1930's that used superheated steam in it's system and
managed at least 200 miles per gallon. Much local interest, including
threats from professional thieves, was not enough publicity to see this
invention through to the market place.
John R. Fish - developed his "Fish" carburetor in the early 1940's that was
tested by Ford who admitted that the invention was a third more efficient
than theirs. The design can also be easily switched to alcohol. Nevertheless
the inventor was hindered from manufacture and distribution in almost every
possible way, he once even resorted to selling by mail order, only to be
stopped by the Post Office. The device can be currently bought from "Fuel
systems of America" Box 9333, Tarcoma, Washington 98401 - U.S.ph:(206)
922-2228. (US PAT's 2,214,273 and 2,236,595 and 2,775,818.)
The Dresserator - was created around the early 70's in Santa Ana, California
by Lester Berriman. It was based on a super-accurate mixture control using
greatly enhanced airflow, and could run a car on up to a 22-to-1 fuel
mixture. Test cars passed the pollution control standards with ease and
managed up to an 18% mileage gain. Although Holley Carburetor and Ford
signed agreements to manufacture the design in 1974, nothing has been heard
Mark J. Meierbachtol - from San Bernardino, California patented a carburetor
( U.S. Patent # 3,432,281 March, 11, 69) that managed significantly greater
mileage than was usual.
