In a move that has made hydrogen injection enthusiasts more enthused and left most critics still critical, NJ Federal Judge Michael Shipp has ruled that the FTC failed to make its case against Dutchman Enterprises LLC., the United Community Services of America Inc and Dennis Lee. The FTC had disputed claims that a product distributed by the defendants, the Hydrogen Assist Fuel Cell (HAFC) kit, could actually cause a substantial increase in gas mileage. The HAFC kit, which is comprised of a "computerized emission system optimizer," an electrolysis unit for on-board hydrogen injection, a vaporizer/ionizer using magnets and additives that include acetone and xylene, is said by its boosters to at least double a vehicle's mileage.
The decision seems to have come after it was revealed that the witness for the FTC, a physicist by the name of Dr. Halperin, had not bought and tested the HAFC and did not even posses a Ph.D in engine technology. For its part, the defense had a witness who "specializes in internal combustion engines" and were able to successfully employ arguments like, "Do you think the President of the United States and his advisors don't know what they're talking about when they call for an increase in the mileage of the nation's vehicles, expecting at least a 10 mpg improvement?" While the seeming "Chewbacca defense" worked for the hydrogen injection evangelist Dennis Lee this time, the FTC may still appeal the ruling. We've put in a call to the FTC for comment, but have not yet heard back. Thanks to Tim for the tip.
