I don’t know what you’re paying for gas right now, but yesterday I saw gas at a whopping $1.52 a litre! (For the Americans, that’s $6.02 a gallon. Read it and weep.)
Which brings me to a fascinating thing that my husband and I learned about last night. Did you know that the technology has been developed to use water or a water-based fuel in a conventional vehicle engine?
When my husband told me this after learning about it during his men’s caregroup meeting, I was completely skeptical. Even though we had promised each other we would go to bed extra early, we just couldn’t resist looking it up online and watching a few YouTube videos to find out what this was all about.
We’re not entirely sure what to think about it quite yet, but we have a friend who has bought a kit online and is trying to adapt his scooter to use the technology. I’ll let you know what happens with it!
Here’s one of the many sites that we found:
Run your car with water
Am I the only one who’s heard of this? Do you know anybody that is doing this successfully?
On a slightly different note, I was hoping to post this up on Frugal Friday, but since that isn’t happening this week, I’ll shamelessly plug a carnival of my own!
Next week (on Friday, to be precise) is the first of a two part carnival, Nourishing Frugal Food. The carnival will be co-hosted by myself, and Kimi of The Nourishing Gourmet. Check out this post for all the details.
The first week, we’ll kick it off with your most frugal and nourishing main dishes, July 11, over at Kimi’s, followed by sides, desserts and salads back here on July 18.. See you there!
