There are too many independent verifications, in different parts of the
world,  that GEET works, to deny something is there.

Who pays your wages?

More delusional redirection, for the fifth time (that's 1,2,3,4,5 for
the delusional)... You are desperately trying to avoid be caught
posting more obvious delusional nonsense. You say there are too many
independent verifications, but you won't or can't do it, which is
first hand verification GEET is a scam and doesn't work.

You blame your energy problems on "big business", but are too lazy to
get off your ass and do something, anything, to try to help the energy
problem, but you prefer sitting in your ass trolling and posting
gibberish.
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Here's a thought for the delusional, a genius like you should be able
to take some of mommy's allowance, and  put GEET on a turbine to drive
a compressor for an Air Car and fuel it with pixie dust to get at
least 1000mpg to travel every inch of La-La-Land. You'd really impress
Tinkerbell and Bigfoot!

GROW UP.

You are barking mad.  Barking.

You can't see the simple, cheap, advantages of using air to claw-back
kinetic energy and use it for acceleration.

One of my uncles rigged up an old air conditioning compressor to pump up an
air tank in his truck, to refill the tires after reducing their pressure for
off-roading.

The electric clutch makes them easy to control, to increase the inherent
engine braking of a manual transmission or add their torque as an air motor
when accelerating, so I played around with the idea. When you work out the
math the possible gain is very slight, not close to worth the added initial
and maintenance cost unless the equipment is free. I found a good 12V
compressor for $0 to pump up the tires.

This is what Diesel trucks do instead, and they already HAVE compressed air
systems.

At $ a gallon the worst-case difference between driving my Honda around
town at a steady speed when traffic is light, and stop-and go at rush hour,
is less than $.04 per mile. That's the most to be gained from a perfectly
efficient regenerative system, compressed air without an expensive and bulky
heat recovery system isn't even close. Now go check the price for an air
compressor of 5-10 HP, which is only a small fraction of car engine power.

At the power and pressure levels I've experimented with, roughly half the
input power is lost as heat when compressing the air, and half of what's
left when it expands and cools in the motor. The numbers depend on how much
the air heats and cools. For a practical example a 500W electric angle
grinder cleans up welds about as fast as an air grinder that requires a 2HP
compressor.

A mine or factory air-powered locomotive charged from an external compressor
can ignore the compression loss, but a self-contained vehicle has to suffer
both it and the expansion loss.
