GEET Reactor

Has this one been explored here yet? I'm tentatively putting it in the Unicorn Corral, because it certainly looks too good to be true.

Directory:GEET Reactor by Paul Pantone - PESWiki


A quote from the inventor, Paul Pantone:
Quote:
Here is how Paul described the technology in brief:

"GEET is a fuel-delivery system that modifies liquid fuels to a vapor stage, then it takes it to a plasma stage, which is a higher energy form, feeding new fuel with fresh air into the engine, burning clean and cool. I shouldn't say 'burning' because it implodes; it doesn't explode; and therefore it takes heat out of the engine to run, making the engine run cold."
Wow, that not only pegs the BS-O-meter; it blows the top clean off it! It may work, or it may not, but the inventor it seems does not have a clue about why or how.

So, should we start ridiculing it, or is a serious discussion possible?

The fact that he got a patent is not proof that it works. The patent office only looks to find if it was previously patented or is public knowlege. If not, they grant the patent. His patent expired August 21, 2002 because the maintenance fees were not paid. Since the patent is expired, anybody can legally copy it without paying him a penny.

And he wants $20,000 to take the class....

which is a higher energy form
so where does that extra energy come from??

ridicule time, i'm guessing it gets it from his ARC reactor that Iron Man built.

or maybe from his flux capacitor. and hey, if the engine runs cold then we could use the cold coolant as AC so we can do an AC delete

OK, a serious response from me now. if he converts it to a higher energy form and then "burns" it cool causing it to "remove" heat from the engine, it seems like a total waste because he keeps increasing the energy in the fuel but never uses it, so inreality your putting energy in and spitting it out the back of your car. what sense does that make?

"and therefore it takes heat out of the engine to run, making the engine run cold"

so where does this heat in the engine come from if it runs cold???

Just think about this logically, though. You install a second engine to use up the energy produced by the first, making the car twice as efficient :-)

Also I wonder... if the fuel implodes rather than explodes in the cylinder, does that mean it sucks the pistons up and the engine runs backwards? Which would mean you're sucking in air through the exhaust, sending it backwards through the catalytic converter (to have HCs and NOx added, I suppose), then blowing it out through the air filter.

Good call.
