Cars Running on Water?

Do you remember Daniel Dingel? I read on the news, way back a decade ago, that he invented a car running on water. The Philippine Daily Inquirer reported that (taken from yahoo answers) that Dingle built his engine as early as 1969. Dingel built a car reactor that uses electricity from a 12-volt car battery to split the ordinary tap water into hydrogen and oxygen components. The hydrogen can then be used to power the car engine. The officials of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) have dismissed Dingel's water-powered car as a hoax.

Today, I stumbled through a forwarded email a company selling a similar technology, complete with props, illustration, and they even offer a 50% affiliate commission!! Their website offers illustrations and how to guides. I do not know if this is for real or a hoax.

Excerpts from their site is below:

CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve landed at the ORIGINAL WATER4GAS website by Ozzie Freedom! There are many fakes appearing throughout the internet. Usually what they sell are books that I give away as a FREE BONUS on this website. This is the only website where you can actually get the real DEAL with real tech support.

- Sincerely,
Ozzie Freedom

I know oil prices have reach proportions barely affordable to many people. But then, this? Is this for real? Again?
