Normally when electrolysis is done, high current DC is used. And each plate produces only one of the two gasses that make up water, which are collected in separate vessels. But in the mode Meyer used, the gasses are mixed creating HHO, or "Browns gas".
By using high voltage and a frequency of 24 kilo-cycles, which happens to be a lower resonant harmonic of the 2,450 MHz that microwave ovens use to "vibrate" water to heat it, Meyer produced more gas per unit of electrical power.
The gas can be used for torches or to cleanly power engines.
Meyer demonstrated his water powered car on many occasions as you can see in the videos below.
Meyer died under suspicious conditions after the government showed interest in his car. See the last video.
A court of "experts" said he was committing fraud, because of course this can't work....of course.
