huge amounts of energy is needed to get h2o to react to anything.. even atomic bomb does not react or burn H2o.
equation 8 can only be reversed with a big input
of energy (electricity) Is there a big extension cord on the engine..?
I can remember covering this at university (organic chemistry) many years ago.
Water is part of the overall combustion process, slows down the overall reaction.
Water reacts with carbon to form CO and H
The H then reacts with O to give H2O which further reacts with C to give CO again.
It's actually a very long and complicated process.
You're also wrong about the methanol part of water injection.
You won't find a dyno test anywhere that shows that a mixture of methanol plus water makes more power on an engine than just adding water on it's own.
Not unless the dyno has been "doctored" or carried out in an unscientific way.
Likewise you won't find a dyno sheet that shows the mass of fuel (petrol? or methanol?) consumed Vs the mass of water consumed vs the mass of methanol (mixed with water)consumed.
But what you CAN find is info from WW2 testing that shows otherwise.
As for the 100RON at the pump.
Just use 98 RON plus water injection.
That's water injection using water.
