Bob shows a car and also a simulated outboard motor in water barrel running on the modified water! May be also seen on You tube Video. Original chemist made up formula using fine type coal powder and photography silver compound. Mixture is heated with acids until floating chemical formed.  This greenish/ blue catalyst is scraped off and dried and stored in opaque bottles -because of light sensitivity. One teaspoon of this 5 cents chemical added to gallon of water bubbles and forms burnable alcohol. later, in 1949, a movie was made based on this inventor's discovery. (He actually got the design from a German chemist who bunked with him in the 30's."
