I first floated the Green Car Project over a year ago as a result of reading the Bob Boyce D9 document where Patrick Kelly suggested that it is easier to use the Bob Boyce cell to run a constant rev engine which would lend itself to an electric vehicle were an engine is used to charge the batteries much like a diesel electric train concept. The aim is to minimise the battery storage and maximise the range of the vehicle.
We are now very close to testing the complete Bob Boyce cell to determine if the 3 frequencies will in fact dramatically increase the gas production to something in the claimed order of 50 litres per min. So far we have achieved 12 Litres per min using the cell as a straight series electrolysis cell. This is not practical to run for prolonged times as it would cook it self. We have had to rebuild the the cell and seal it to prevent a corona effect between the outside perspex casing and the inner plastic slabs holding the 101 plates.
Although there is some new deterioration we hope to at least get a good test done when the coil is complete.
We also have a GEET system in the making and several other bits of technology that can be used in the GREEN CAR Project. At least we have the foundations emerging and in place for a good start next year.
Time will fly fast as it has done this year but it is hoped we can enter something in the Green Fleet Race such as a standard car running clean on HOH but with some fuel. That is in our reach without funding so we will continue to strive for practical and reliable Green Technologies.

Here is the ultimate Green car being developed by a team in the USA and by Uli, an Australian German from Adelaide. Uli had done much with many of the technologies that we in the Association are interested in and I have known him for many years. Indeed the project is quite exciting and challenging, I hope it may be an inspiration for us to still have a crack at the Green Car for the Greenfleet race next year.
I am sure there will be much we can learn from Uli and his team. You can view day to day developments on the live web cam right now. Enjoy. ian
