Default Evil diesel can Aquamist save the planet

Seems to me that every other day their is someone in the news saying diesel is evil
Surely this must be a massive opportunity to bring to market a environmentally friendly kit

Burns better, more mpg, more performance, less soot and nasty toxic stuff, even Smells better

Would it not be possible to get a university or some government funding to "prove" all this with some real world studies
http://www.aquamist.co.uk/forum2/vbu...ead.php?t=2570
I'm guessing the current methodology of proving mpg/co2 wouldn't suit a low boost application

But If you can prove a aftermarket demand, then surely it would only be a matter of time that it was a oem option
Look at what VW have spent chasing a few mpg with fudged figures

Public transport could be easily encouraged to become early adopters as they have green targets to meet, far cheaper than electric as a solution,

Would be no different than filling with ad-blue in day to day use

Whats not to like ?

Sorry for the late response.

I had the same idea as you in 2003. I spent a good six hours on the phone to the UK government's environmental protection agency. I tried to ask them to give us a small grant for developing a nitrous reduction system for diesel engines based on a proven concept of water injection.

I started at 9am to one department, got passed onto various agencies until I gave up at around 4pm. None were receptive to the idea, none ever heard of the concept. I called at least 40-50 agencies. Each successful human contact just gave me another new number to call. Some numbers were just an answering machine, left many messages for them to contact me on their return.

I had a sheet of A2 paper, by 4pm it looked like the flight route of an airliner with hundreds of short notes, the sheet was filled to the brim.

Finally I was very happy when the last phone number linked back to the first number I called. I did not get one return call for the next three days. I guessed the message was clear that they are not interested.

So I decided to put my effort to make the cars less greener and pumping out more CO2s. Plan B worked to this day.

Hi Richard

I totally understand why you have kicked this into the long grass, you can only have so many doors shut in your face

But 2017 has a different climate to 2003, both physically and metaphorically
I'm thinking you might find it far easier to get a foot in the door,

I don't think much has changed, except those agency employees get more pay from the green levy. They are paid to think, sleep and talk green but they are deaf and blind.

I wonder if water injection will help?
