Stanley Meyer: fraud or genius?

Imagine running your car on water, after more than 20 years of research Stanley Mayer claimed to have done what was previously thought impossible, turn water into hydrogen fuel and drive his dune buggy on water straight from the tap.
I first heard about this from a friend in Ohio who knew Stanley Mayer personally and said he had even seen the dune buggy itself.
I was told that he replaced the spark plugs with “injectors” to spray a fine mist into the engine cylinders, which were electrified at a resonant frequency. The fuel cell would split water into hydrogen and oxygen gas, which would com-bust back into water vapour in a conventional hydrogen engine to produce net energy.
Mayer during his research had many highs and humiliating defeats. He was hailed as a visionary and a genius but was also sued and declared a fraud.
He was born in Columbus’ East Side and joined the military after briefly attended Ohio State University. His research into running a car on water began in 1975, a year after the end of the Arab oil embargo, which had triggered high gas prices, gas-pump lines and anxiety.
Despite claims that Mayer was a fraud it seems many people were desperate to stop his work as Charlie Hughes recalled “I had been playing outside when the driveway suddenly filled with limousines. Men in turbans stepped out. In “stern, thick accents,” they asked for Meyer. “I remember, because I was not allowed in my own house that day.”
They left briskly. Charlie was about to go inside when the driveway filled again, this time with military vehicles. “Army brass,” he recalled.
At dinner that night, Meyer told them: “The Arabs wanted to offer me $250 million to stop today. “You and this lovely family can live in peace and prosperity the rest of your days.” They had told him.
The Army officials, meanwhile, had questioned Meyer about what the foreigners wanted, thinking that a deal might have been struck, Charlie recalled Meyer telling the family.
Stanley Meyer’s bizarre death at age 57 ended work that, if proved valid, could have brought about the downfall of the big oil giants that have such a strangle hold on us today. Stanley Allen Meyer, his brother and two Belgian investors raised glasses in the Grove City Cracker Barrel on March 20, 1998. He took a sip of cranberry juice. Then he grabbed his neck, bolted out the door, dropped to his knees and vomited violently.
“I ran outside and asked him, ‘What’s wrong?’ “his brother, Stephen Meyer, recalled. “He said, ‘They poisoned me.’ That was his dying declaration.” If Stephen Meyer was shocked at his twin brother’s collapse and death, he was equally amazed at the Belgians’ response the next day.
“I told them that Stan had died and they never said a word,” he recalled, “absolutely nothing, no condolences, no questions.
“I never, ever had a trust of those two men ever again.”
Stanley Meyers death sparked a three-month investigation that completely fascinated both the police and residents of Grove City; a fascination that still lasts to this day.
Was Stanley Mayer a fraud or a genius who was silenced to protect the interests of the big oil giants? I will leave that to the reader to make up their own minds.
