Agha Waqar accepts Physics teacher's challenge to run car on water

Published: August 6, 2012

Professor Ranomal Malani, brother of PPP MNA Dr Mahesh Malani, challenged Engineer Agha Waqar on Monday to run his car on water and get Rs5 million in return. Waqar, accepting the challenge, promised to run all his cars solely on water.

Holding a press conference at the Media Centre in Mathi, Malani handed a cheque worth Rs5 million to the press club administration and said that the cheque will remain with them for 15 more days.

Calling the ‘water car’ a fraud, Malani claimed that Waqar had fooled Federal Minister Khursheed Shah and the media representatives. He added that he was holding the press conference to save the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) from falling victim to a fraud.

Waqar, talking to Express News, asked Malani to tell him his car model and the number of cars, adding that he will prepare the car kits accordingly. “You will permanently run your car on it. It won’t be a test demonstration.”

Waqar added that he does not want to be “bribed” with the prize money and said that Malani should distribute that money among the poor.

Malani, in reply, gave Waqar 10 days to prepare the kits and run his car on water. He also expressed delight over not having to hand the prize money.

“He had hidden a Hydrogen cylinder in his demonstration on TV. He fooled everyone. I know it because I teach Physics. This is impossible,” alleged Malani. But Waqar claimed that he will run the car solely on distilled water and will not add fuel or anything else to it.

Waqar had earlier claimed that he can run a 1,000CC vehicle till 40 kilometres with one litre of water by attaching a small water kit in the car that separates hydrogen from water and supplies it to the engine.

Correction: An earlier version of the article incorrectly quoted Waqar as saying that he wants to be bribed. The error is regretted.

    Funny to see such news rpeatedly in media. Very simple, it is possible to run the car on water but one has to see the cost factor. Such experiments have been made by Mercedes and Wolkwagen car manufctureres. Cars were run even on roads. The main problem is to get water both componats separate so expensive is that even these wealthy car manufacturing companies left the project for ever. As no one will ever be ready to buy such expensive cars. Engineer Waqar knows it but is not coming out with the facts.

    This entire episode is actually classic example of Pakistani social thinking.

    Except for 2 prominent scientist/educationalist, no one questioned this claim and CABINET held meeting on this! Wow! Not even in UK the ministers are scientists. But they have advisors. They also follow advise given by experts. Even in Crime ridden democracy of India Ministers and Media editors or opinion makers ask experts (or in Sri Lanka, Nepal, Rwanda, Burundi etc) before going in front of camera or holding serious meetings!

    And Father of Nuclear Bomb in India would have not even cared to respond to such phoney claims but Dr Khan couldn’t resist indirectly supporting such possibility of this claim, could he?

    Nothing of that sort happened. rather this poor Mr Malani will be considered ill-wishing Hindu just like Dr Hoodbhoy was branded as ill-wishing liberal!

    What a “Show case” example of Pakistani society at large!

    Please note that the car may actually run purely on Waqar’s water kit for several kilometres i.e. as long as the battery can provide the energy for hydrolysis, but yes, eventually the laws of Physics will kick in and battery will die that’s when his fraud will become apparent.

    The principle of hydrolysis to generate hydrogen as fuel that the engine can then consume is perfectly feasible, the only issue is that this is not a long term solution, this is not a perpetual machine that can run for years on water, short term yes, to impress someone yes, an actual solution, never.

    There are thousands of cars on roads which run on hydrogen cells. Even Honda has a model which uses Hydrogen fuel cells. In America, some car races are held in which hydrogen cylinders are allowed to get more speed and power. Many motor bike gangs also use hydrogen cylinders (illegaly) for fun. The only problem is that Hydrogen is a very expensive fuel and cannot be compared with fossil fuels in price and availability. Because of unique properties of hydrogen, process to seperate hydrogen from other elements is very expensive and cannot be done in a car itself, because it quantity would be very little. much less to run a car. The prof. Malani is right that Mr. Waqar has hidden hydrogen cylinder underneath car’s engine.

    On another point, Agha’s kit looks a very crude design and he has also admitted that there are leaks in the kit. It would be very dangerous. Hydrogen being highly flammable gas could easily cause major explosion. Care should be exercised by everyone. I would not travel in this car. Agha should be asked to run the car himself inside a stadium and others can watch it from a distance.

Our cabinet/parliament should hold hearings against ministers (Khurshid Shah etc) for endorsing a phony claim and undermining the honor and dignity of the country and its parliament. Most importantly, there should be serious inquiry and repercussions for Dr. Samar Mubarakmand, Dr. AQ Khan, the PCSIR chairman, the Pakistan Science Foundation chairman for lending their name to the hysteria and bringing into question their own credibility as well as that of the programs they currently run, have run in the past, or are planning to run in future For example: can we trust Mr. Mubarakmand with the Thar Coal Project feasibility if he believed and endorsed the water-kit hoax?

    Has Agha waqar claimed that it runs purely on water? He has stated that he uses electrolysis to isolate hydrogen from water so electricity is also being used. Ofcourse you can use hydrogen as a fuel because it’s inflammable. Point is the whole system is an inefficient one. There are vast energy losses in between which make it an unviable project. You might aswell run the car directly from electricity to avoid unnecessary losses in between because no process is a 100% efficient. Energy input is always more than the output. When you include the cost of all things and electricity used to obtain hydrogen as fuel, you will realize it is not an efficient process nor is it clean because most of Pakistan’s electricity generation probably comes from coal. Might work out cheaper than oil if he used solar power for electrolysis. But still it would be an inefficient design. His claim is the equivalent of saying a steam engine only runs on water forgetting the coal burnt to heat water to generate steam. That is the whole reason for the invention of the internal combustion engine because the external combustion engine was less efficient.

    I have an advanced stage prototype that enables the car to run on empty promises by politicians. It is field tested to give 50km for every time time they call themselves in service of the common man and 100km for every time Zardari or Nawaz or Khaki duffers open their mouth and speak as if they care for the average citizen. Very efficient engine it works on the principle on strong-force physics – when the bond breaks between promise and hope, there is much energy generated that can be harnessed to run a car. I’m looking to raise some additional funds to commercialize the technology. Please send check of 1 Million Rupees to: 420 Sorry State of Education St, Godhelpabad, Sindh, Pakistan.

    It is not running a car, but sustained running for minimum 12 hrs at a stretch. The car battery which is mostly 40 AHC is not likely to sustain continuous discharge to support electrolysis, which small alternator could recoup. The car battery is likely to fall dead by few hours.

    The answer to your question is yes. Let me tell you of my experience with homeopathy for over 30 years that it works equally well in routine ailments and as well as in chronic diseases where other medicine systems fail to cure. However let me put you wiser that Homeopathy cannot replace Allopathic system where major surgeries are involved. Your comments appears to be based on British Medical Association report which has rubbished homeopathy recently but I tend to totally disagree with this report based on my experience as mentioned above. Homeopathy works on the law that whatever symptoms are caused by the medicine in crude form on a healthy person are cured by the same medicine, prepared in potency but it is not possible to explain more on the same as well diseases cured by this system on this forum. Notwithstanding above, my best wishes to Waqar to prove his claim and if he succeeds the whole world will be thankful to him.

    So based on same principle why cannot a water based engine work seemingly defying Avegadro’s principle?
    P.S. I don;t think homeopathy works, but if it does, then running a water engine as set up by the gentleman is possible.

    You have quoted Avegadros Principle according to which potencies higher than 24X or 12c cannot have even one molecule but homeopaths disagree on this theory and according to them higher potencies have been achieved by Dynamization process. Nevertheless, action speaks louder than words since millions have been cured including those suffering from chronic and incurable diseases by homeopathic medicines for more than 150 years, otherwise homeopathy should have been banned long time back.

    To run a car on water as fuel is only possiable through Hydogen Cold Fusion..
    As energy released by fusion of Hydrogen in one litre of water is=70 Trillions Joules.
    Hydrogen has more energy than Uranium-235.
    If you do such experiment you must know the equation:
    EROEI=energy created by a fuel divided by energy seent to get the fuel.
    High energy returns possiable with LENR based generators also called Lattice assisted Nuclear reaction LARR. or Cold Fusion.
    Cold Fusion is a nuclear process,energy is creatrd from mass according to Einstein,s E=mc2
    Fusion reaction are million times more powerful then chemical burning of fuels.small amount of fuel can provide large amount of power.

    TRUTH: Pakistani Water Car invented by Agha Waqar & his team is indeed the greatest invention of mankind history: A Nation that has one of the most creative brains in the world has finally won.

    Prologue.

    Any wise person can understand at the spot that it is despicable crime to declare Agha Waqar a fraud with out finding physically any fraud in car that he has already demonstrated in front of top journalists politicians and many Ph.D’s. Some theoretical Ph.D’s has launched hate campaign against the greatest inventor of mankind history Agha Waqar. All objections of these some IRRESPONSIBLE Ph.D’s do not carry any weight and sense. They WRONGLY claim, this invention violates laws of science; in fact it does not. The reason of their totally absurd claims is their jealousy against inventor & their inability to understand that new invention. Their universe of science has been stuck & confined to a blackbox called electrolysis. Just like a rusty deformed crooked needle of a retired old wall-clock that is stuck at one place due to its weak battery. So these some useless jealous Ph.D’s have lost their faculty to think OUT OF BOX. They will not understand mechanics of this greatest invention unless they start to think out of box. Sometime they say, Agha is not engineer, so he cannot invent. But Edison the biggest inventor of history was too neither Ph.D nor even B.Engg. Ata Rehman & Hoodbhoy are driving their truck in wrong direction on one way road. Their all hue & cry is, that car cannot be run on electrolysis with battery but they do not know that method of Agha is ABSOLUTELY not conventional Electrolysis. When they will know his method, they will not sleep for many nights.

    Every day that passes by that this fraud known as Agha Waqar is allowed to continue to fool the nation, my respect for this nation goes down. I cannot believe that there are enough people out there, many considering themselves scientists and educated folks, who still believe that there might be a chance that Agha Waqar might be on to something. Dr Pervez Hoodbhoy put it very eloquently, that this man is talking rubbish, has less understanding of science than an average school kid, and should be put in jail. Having seen Agha Waqar attempt to explain his theory behind the car, I completely agree with Pervez Hoodbhoy. What saddens me are the ignorant fools who add an ‘inshallah’ hoping that something true might come out of this. Wake up Pakistan! Stop expecting a Messiah to come out of the blue and walk on water (or in this case, run the whole country on water) , get off your lazy behinds and act to save your country from total collapse.
