Semis tend to run on diesel oil today – as they are the most powerful engines, To double the power we get from a unit of fuel oil, Titanium plate the cylinder head and body. This doubles the amount of Molecular Nuclear Fusion we do - 'r' in the equation below.
1 Cmm(H2O)n+pO2->(mCO2+(n-r)H2O-E)+r(He+O+X-ray +E2)
So we double 'r', and double the MPG we get. For a $500 Ti plate – that will last the life of the engine. This science was taught to me in 1984, at Sheffield University.
Tesla is looking at batteries and electric motors, and frequent recharges. Semis are on the road 12 hours a day – there is no time for recharging. 18 hours with a driver change.
And this just shifts the CO2 output. As unless we use steam plasma tubes to do Molecular Nuclear Fusion, power is generated using Fossil Fuels burns. Uranium fission is so toxic, every nuclear power plant needs, but does not have 100 billion of annual insurance, per plant.
If we have 9 1mx2cm steam plasma tube, we get 151.2MW of heat. We run a steam cycle, but condense the exit steam of the cold end of a Carnot heat plant: condensing the water to 80oC. We loopback 855 of the heat to the boiler room and super heat chamber.
2 H2O+PL->E3+L+X-ray no CO2, or radioactive waste
So we can run a 100mW power station off 7x10-7cc of regular water a year. This stops 40% of the CO2 emissions from man.
To drive a semi, we use 2 50x1cm steam plasma tubes. Which give us 4.8MW of heat. We drive a small steam turbine – from the steam the plasma tubes produce. We get 960kW of electricity. Enough to power a SMALL TOWN. Use IT to fly between cities. Setting up virtual highways in the sky.
Off a vanishing small amount of water – removing 12% of the CO2 emissions man releases today. Sorry Tesla, there is a better answer than batteries and charging batteries.
A diesel engine, costs $13,000. A small turbine $27,000. But the plasma tubes have virtually no fuelling cost. I would tend to use distilled water – cost of 1L, $3.85. Even with heavy mileage, you will never measure your water use.
