They showed the guy pouring water into the machine. They then showed water being formed when it burned. They ended up with the same thing they started with.
Since nothing is more than 100% efficient, any process that both starts and finishes with the same product has to be getting major energy from someplace else.
This is NOT a perpetual motion machine. Since there is no net change in substance..... water being changed to hydrogen and oxygen, then back to water... there is no net chemical energy released. What you are seeing is the electrical energy being converter to heat. That's all, nothing else.
He originally did it as an alternative to acetylene. It worked as that, but it's no magic fuel. His car was a hybrid. I'd say he just tied into a 12V line (lighter circuit, maybe) as a source of electricity, which was used to electrolytically decompose a small amount of water into hydrogen.... which was injested (in small, insignificant amounts) into the engine through the airbox. He said he only used 4 ounces of water in a 100 mile trip. Water is only 11% hydrogen, so 4 measly liquid ounces of water doesn't produce squat for hydrogen. It doesn't make enough to START the car, let alone drive it.
He probably just stuck the hose in the airbox and called his car a hybrid.
Might be fine for welding with a small flame, but nothing you are going to power an automobile with.
