Noli Dazo, a Filipino inventor, has been recognized as the ‘Outstanding Inventor of the Philippines’. His invention, which is said to have the potential to reduce the cost of gasoline in the Philppines is powered by water.
Aptly named the ‘Dazo Water Fuel Hydrogen or the Tubig na Gasolina, Dazo’s contraption can power vehicles of all kinds like motorcycles, trucks and cars. The possibility of the invention is almost endless and is said to may eventually replace diesel or gasoline as the main fuel for gas combustion engines.
Dazo, who has a degree in engineering and computer science from Southern Nevada College explain on a video that his invention would be beneficial to the Philippines since tricycles and jeepneys are the most popular type of public transportation.
“With 3 times the power as standard petrol or diesel, and this, in turn, helps to fully ignite and burn the standard fuel going into the engine,” says Dazo. The water gasoline burns quickly, thus, it is cleaner and has more power.
Around the world, there have been several inventions that claim to have successfully run engines using water. In the Philippines, similar claims of being able to build water-fueled engines are not new as well. According to Wikipedia, at least one other Filipino, Daniel Dingel, have also accomplished this feat. He is said to have developed the technology as far back as 1969. In 2000, Dingel entered into a business partnership with Formosa Plastics Group to further develop the technology. In 2008, however, Formosa Plastics successfully sued Dingel for fraud, with the 82-year-old Dingel being sentenced to 20 years imprisonment.
