The price of petrol and diesel is increasing day by day. And so is the pollution level. But now all your problems will be solved. Because now there is a new car that runs on water. Let me introduce you to Mahammed Races Mehmood Makrani a resident of Sagar, Madhya Pradesh who has manufactured this ‘Water Car’. Does it sound impossible? Not any more. Finally the dream has come true. Mr. Makrani has been working in his family garage for last thirty tine years without any formal training. In two thousand twelve, he converted his Maruti 800 into such a car that runs on water. He said that in 2007, he started an experiment. In his experiment he combined water and calcium carbide and he started modifying his car engine according to this chemical and produce a gas. “First, I modified the engine and the piston connector and head. After that, I started to produce this fuel and connected all the systems. After that, I tried to start the engine. It took me one and half years to get the engine running. I worked round the clock to make this happen. It took me one and half years” ! Acetylene gas can replace LPG and CNG in Cars. But it’s a highly flammable gas. It’s a big achievement in itself to use this gas as fuel in a controlled way without any technical and mechanical support.
His car has a 796 CC engine. It is as powerful as the other cars of this segment. The maximum speed of this Car is fifty to sixty kilometres per hour. But the running cost of a petrol Car is Rs. six per kilometre. But the running cost of this car is just half of that. This Car can run for sixty kms with twenty five litres of water and four kilogrammes of calcium carbide. And till now, he has spent Rs. Seven lakh on this car.
The companies from China and Dubai contacted him for this invention. Mr. Races Makrani travelled to Chine too. But he is so inspired by ‘Make in India’ initiative of PM Modi that he rejected all the offers. Anyway, his innovative mind did not stop here.
Then he thought of controlling this car using a mobile. “So far, we can talk using a mobile. We can send SMS, Emails and use many applications. I thought of using a mobile to control the Car. I wish to start and stop the engine using a mobile”. And Mr. Races Makrani operates his car using a mobile. He has installed such a motor in this car which he can control using the mobile network frequency. And by pressing different numbers he can start the Car engine. He can start and stop the car engine, drive it forward and even in reverse !
So, while eminent scientist all over the world are spending million of dollars to invent a driver less car, here is one of our fellow countrymen who has developed this car by spending only few lakhs. The running cost of this ‘Water Car’ is just half as compared to the other cars. It can reach a speed of sixty kms per hour. Mr. Race’s effort of reducing the effect of pollution on the environment is indeed praiseworthy.
