Water injection, not a problem if done correctly. The drink bottle method is a bit crude, but it dose work, what is water? Hydrogen & oxygen. You car runs better on cool damp nights, cool dense air a bit of moisture so in controlled quantities may be it's not a bad idea. You only have to look at the tops of a piston and in the exhaust ports of an engine that has had a coolant leak, all the carbon is gone, how to administer and in what quantity and for what duration is a bit of a mystery but the theory is based on fact, so when someone has nothing better to do I look forward to your thesis in the mail.

What stood out to me was putting a vacuum hose into a container of water. Yikes. Hydrolock but quick.

Yes, was a bit scary, but with a dedicated metering device, like a hospital drip, it dose have some merit,

This system was used over here in the 80s and but has since went missing. It was promoted as a fuel saving technique but so far any fuel saving systems have met their fate over.

None really worked, people are not bothered after wasting their money on these equipments, the returns are not as expected, faulty hoses not replaced, etc are the reasons they go away.

Even the HHO and CNG that were really hot over here a some time back have taken a abck seat when oil prices dropped after the heavy spike.

I have heard of some ingenious people here who have devised a system to inject H2O into the cylinders to cool the engine and increase performance but have yet to see one.

Technically and logically the system is workable but as Mark mentioned, control is the key. If this system can be perfected, the guy is going to be richer than Bill Gates.

Very common practice among the Buick GN and Turbo TA crowd.

They would use DISTILLED water into a small vacuum port like the MAP, and clean carbon.

They even sold a kit for doing it.

That is how we were taught to do a "top engine" cleaning, accept we used seafoam, and you need to know what your doing when you put that vacuum hose in the bottle, you must use something to pinch it off so that it doesn't suck the whole bottle up, and or quickly dunk the hose in for a split milli second to let it suck a little up, but it takes some coordination to do, not just any old inexperienced person can do it.

Oz, its a love poison for the engine and fuel system to degrade carbon/varnish/debris etc to increase performances, that's how I understand it when it hit the consumers in the very beginning. It suppose to be some good stuff not intended for human consumption lol
