This has much the same feel as Brown's gas, including similar supposed
health benefits that others have claimed for Browns gas.

Thomas Gas has all the hallmarks of the typical alternative energy
scam, including no independent verification, no useful data, no peer
reviewed paper and absurd health claims. But unlike most of these
scams - is alluring in that they claim to have a long running working
device. Also - a few other details do check out, so at least it is an
Plus - if there is anything to it at all - the description makes it
sound like it could involve dense hydrogen in some way, but that too
is not clear. Any new tech with overtones of dense hydrogen gets my
Quote:"The prototype of the Thomas Gas Generator is now working for
over 5 years."
Whoa. That should be easy enough to document, yet there is no
indication from a reputable source that it is true and no images of
the device. They have a Facebook page, but I am anti-FB so that is no
They continue: "Thomas Gas (TG) is a hydrogen derivative
that is 100 % green, clean, environmentally safe, and has higher
energy potential than typical hydrogen gas...TG has a net charge of
+1, non-combustible, superconductor versus Hydrogen with 0 net charge,
highly combustible, and high conductivity.
The British thermal unit (BTU) is a measure of energy production.
Molecular hydrogen (H2) carries 2.7X higher energy per unit mass than
gasoline (1 kg of H2 has approximately the energy content of one
gallon (2.7 kg) of gasoline).
*Energy Generated by Combustion of Fuels and Hydrogen*
Gasoline (n-Heptane) 19,314
Natural gas 20,267
Conventional gasoline 18,679
U.S. conventional diesel 18,397
Crude oil 18,352
Hydrogen (H2) 52,200
Thomas Gas (TG) 196,200
As depicted, the energy contained in 1 pound of TG is 10.5 X greater
than conventional gasoline and
*3.75X greater than H2*.
Is this complete BS?
My guess is that the odds of it being real are slim, but there is
possibly something there and I am willing to waste a few hours of
Covid time, trying to find out.
