If it really worked...car makers would already be doing it....

...well maybe not...if they are the typical slow *ss US companies that spend more on lobbying than R&D?

"Hello from Dutchman Enterprises. We appreciate your having taken the time at
some time in the past to request a quote for a PICC for one or more
vehicles(s). We were concerned about EPA issues with the technology originally,
but we have re-designed around those considerations and we are no longer
concerned about our special catalytic converter qualifying with the EPA. With
gas prices rising as they have, other large interests have been looking for
solutions to some of their problems and we have discovered a common interest in
helping the American car manufacturers get back to doing what they do best…
make the kind of vehicles Americans want. The door has opened for us to better
serve the American consumers.

We have some extremely important news. Ford and
Dutchman have been talking and Ford finally gave permission for Dutchman to
tell the public what is going on. This last weekend, a Ford executive spent
several hours speaking to the dealers involved in distributing the Dutchman
Enterprises automotive technologies at their annual dealers convention.
Dutchman Enterprises can now announce that the initial meeting with
representatives of Ford Motor Company went very well and both parties are
excited about testing the HAFC and PICC and for the potential of improving fuel
economy for American automobiles. The initial reaction of the Ford team involved
was excitement and enthusiasm over the potential of both the HAFC and the PICC.
Discussions have begun about both companies partnering together to further
develop these technologies.

Dutchman Enterprises received a letter from the engineer that is heading up the
Ford team to test the HAFC. In that letter from Corporate Headquarters in
Dearborn Michigan, the leading engineer wrote, “the (HAFC) concept makes good
sense.” There have been critics at large who have challenged the idea of water
gas and called it a scam technology, but one has to consider the fact that no
one knows more about automobiles and what makes sense relating to them than the
engineers who design and build them. This same engineer, in the same letter,
wrote, “We are also excited about the potential of the PICC technology.”
Ford is discussing getting involved because these technologies make sense.
Their testing is supposed to be over on or around October 1st, and the
executive that addressed the dealers gave everyone the impression it was going
well. They have even asked for more units and that is a good sign.

Mr. Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford Motor Company, was interviewed on CNBC on the
12th of September, and he told the reporter that there are some interesting
things happening in the alternative fuels area. He said, “Hydrogen
technologies, involving water, offer some incredible opportunities to do
something with the engines we already have.” That is not a statement about
regular Hydrogen Fuel Cells, which do not operate with current engines. It is
reasonable to assume he is talking about water gas injection and the
Hydro-Assist Fuel Cells, which his people are currently testing.
Of course, Dutchman Enterprises is excited about the prospects of partnering
with Ford Motor Company and their thousands of Ford dealers all across the USA
and throughout the world. Not to mention the engineering and research prospects
for developing the PICC to it’s full potential. It is not hard to see why Ford
would want to be able to get 50% (or even 30%) better mileage out of their
existing SUVs and Pickup trucks. It could save the US auto industry to be able
to develop the PICC within a year or so to be able to get 100 miles per gallon
or better (city and highway) with future SUVs and Pickups. "

OK. Now would you please explain why it is that, if American car manufacturers really do make the kinds of vehicles Americans want, foreign car manufacturers keep gaining market share?
