Can you substantiate any of the above or is it just old wifes gossip?Oh yes I remember it now oh:
Its called..." A good way of parting you from your cash whilst knackering your engine in the process with no comeback whatsoever for the conman that sold it to you in the first place"
Or something like that.....
Im sure there are people on here that will say it works because of a..b...c... but come on didnt your parents ever tell you "If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is"???
keep your money in your pocket and spendit on petrol instead...you know it makes sense :thumb::thumb:

If you think of the logic, water contains oxygen, so it has to improve performance!
:Cool: Having been a Fireman at one stage in my life. We were taught never to put water onto a Metal fire. Why? Because it would explode. A similar principle is at work when injecting a fine mist of water into an engine.Oh yes thats right water contains oxygen oh: Thats why they use it to put fires out isnt it??...sounds like just the stuff to aid combustion in your engine
Right then here goesThanks Ian

:Cool: Have you never seen Metal Wool burning? That is the wire wool used for cleaning copper pipe fittings in Plumbing.Hi John
Thats really interesting, can you tell me what a metal fire is?? I wasnt aware metal was a source of fuel for fires or is it the environment that fire is burning in (e.g a metal box) that this refers to??
Ive been looking on the net and found thisThanks Ian
Hi John:Cool: Have you never seen Metal Wool burning? That is the wire wool used for cleaning copper pipe fittings in Plumbing.
Metal swarf from metal turning etc can be set on fire in a similar way to Metal wool. It is TRUE. That's how fireworks work along with gunpowder/explosive materials.
BTW. Flour along with Coal dust and other types of dust can be explosive if the right conditions exist.
No,NO,No,:Cool: Mine would even fool a fool.
The sole function of water injection is avoiding detonation.
Good lad!!!:thumb:using the correct grade of fuel and keeping your engine well tuned, correct plugs,gaps and ignition timing always worked for me Dazzer.
i put water in my engine but only where its meant to go.........in the radiator!!!!!:thumb:
Hi Dazzer,Right then here goes
If it was such a well tried and tested system that didnt have any ill effects on your engine.....why havnt you heard anything about it???
Why dont car manufacturers fit it to ANY engine they produce and why are we bothering messing around with complex turbo/super chargers on our engines when all we need to do is shove a bit of water into the mix?? oh:.
Id also be really interested in the kind of warranty the seller of the system includes and how the manufacturer of your pride and joy would react if you took it back for work under warranty with a fault on the engine with this system fitted :Blush:
If it was that simple and effective everyone would have one fitted and it would be as common as fuel injection..........the fact that it isnt speaks volumes wouldnt you say??:thumb:
But if you decide that its the way forward for you then please let us know how it goes....after all a motorhome is the ideal vehicle to try it out on as it has an on board water source before you start :thumb:. Personally I will be keeping water as far away from my engine ignition system as possible and if economy was the key factor would be fitting an LPG conversion instead. :thumb:
Thanks for that Doug. Having looked it up on the net its a very specialised bit of kit doing a very specific job on high performance boosted engines, and as you say no use to 99.9% of the engine using public. oh:Hi Dazzer,
I can give you a specific example of where it's fitted. Subura Imprezas Sti and Mitsibushi Evos. It's used to avoid pre-ignition in very high boost turbo engines. In the sti it's an atomised spray into the air intake throat controlled by a little switch on the centre console. It's actually very small percentages compared with air or fuel. I can't see it being of any benefit in the sort of engines fitted to a motorhome.
I'm sure I read somewhere about another forced induction engine that was using water to increase charge density increasing effeciency. Maybe Mercedes? So who knows in another couple of years, water injection may be common place.
