Inventor of Water Powered Car Dies Yelling ‘They Poisoned Me’

A man who invented a water powered car died suddenly after eating at a restaurant and running outside screaming ‘they poisoned me’. 

Stanley Meyer, who was about to take on the oil industry with his water powered car, life was cut short back in 1998 when he died following a meeting with investors about his new invention.

According to a police investigation and a coroner’s report Meyer has suffered from high blood pressure and duly died from a cerebral aneurysm.

Many of Meyer’s supporters of free energy believe he was assassinated by the oil industry because he posed too much of a threat to their monopoly.

His brother, Steve claimed Meyer, passed away in the parking lot after a super conference with Belgian financiers and had declined ‘a great deal of cash for the patent to his invention’.

Steve also claimed ‘sharks’ came a week later and stole the dune buggy, together with all his sibling’s experimental devices.

The story of how he passed away has flowed ever since, with little proof to either verify or reject it.

Was The Water Powered Car Such A Big Threat?

Meyer demonstrated a dune buggy he claimed was powered by his water fuel cell on a news report on an Ohio TV station,

He estimated just 22 US gallons (83 liters) of water were needed to travel from Los Angeles to New York– he also claimed to have replaced the spark plugs with ‘injectors’, presenting a hydrogen/oxygen mix into the engine cylinders.

Rhe water was ‘subjected to an electrical resonance that dissociated it into its standard atomic makeup’ according to the Wikipedia page.

The water fuel cell would divide the water into hydrogen and oxygen gas, which would then be combusted back into water vapor in a standard internal combustion engine to produce net energy.

Here’s an early interview with Meyer:

In 1996, Meyer was taken legal action against by two investors, to whom he had sold dealerships, providing the right to do organization in Water Fuel Cell Innovation.

His water-fuelled cars and truck were because of being examined by the expert, Michael Laughton, Professor of Electrical Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London but he made a ‘lame excuse’ on the days of assessment, and the tests were never carried out.

His ‘water fuel cell’ was later examined by three professional witnesses in court who found there ‘was nothing innovative about the cell at all and it was just utilizing traditional electrolysis.’

The court found Meyer had devoted ‘gross and outright fraud’ and he was brought to pay back the two financiers their $25,000.

According to Wikipedia, Meyer’s inventions are now in the public domain, which suggests they’re available for all to use without restriction or royalty payment yet, despite this, no engine or car producer has aimed to copy his work.


A Japanese company called Genepax unveiled their water powered car in 2008 in Osaka. It doesn’t matter if it’s tap, bottled, or lake water, any kind of water can make this car run.

An energy generator splits the water particles to produce hydrogen and this is used to power the vehicle. They use a membrane electrode assembly (MEA) to split the Hydrogen from the Oxygen through a chain reaction.

The cell needs just water and air, removing the need for a hydrogen reformer and high-pressure hydrogen tank.
