Now you have this info it is your duty to share it and save it


Generation 1, 1984
This generation was (I believe) only capable of idling the buggy. It consisted of the demo tube cell with the alternator and electric motor turning the alternator. The electric motor was plugged directly into the house mains.
-Reference News Release # 1, Grove City Record 



Generation 1.5  1984-85
EPG housing in place of the future red fuel tank.  A curved top cell in place of the future VIC control box.  Brake lights are mounted under the frame pipe.  Possible head lights mounted under mirrors by the “doors”.  

This Generation incorporated the rejoinined of ehte Nitrogen and Hydrogen into the EPG to make pwer and USable explosive fuel on demand. 



Generation 2, 1985
This generation was used to show to the military and was shown on Channel 6 News from Columbus Ohio.
This generation was used for the first buggy road test and produced enough gas to run the dune buggy up to 55mph. It used a different WFC placed in a large container with a manual valve to control the engine speed.
This generation used the redline inverter, the ac motor and the alternator as well as a large box containing electronics controls (Likely a modified 8XA circuit as one can see a variac mounted on the box) 
-Reference News Release # 2 and Channel 6 Columbus News Report

 There are 2 roll bars on the “roof”, just as in an original Berrien Buggy sand rail frame still available today.  

These are also visible in the Generation 1.5 

That looks like a blue electric motor…..running an alternator…
I never noticed this before is that an electric motor running an alternator in this picture?



Generation 2.5 1985 -1987 

The 2 roll bars have been replaced by a single unbent roll bar down the middle.  On the front, the buggy still has the original Berrien sand rail bumper and headlights.  The hood has been modified by cutting it and installing a piano hinge.  This allowed the hood to be opened while the GMS unit was installed in the windshield.  The headlights under the mirrors are removed.  A “Solar” and a #24 sticker is attached to the sides.  The red fuel tank is installed, but appears to be in factory original condition, used for gasoline.  GMS box is installed but seems like the rest of the system has not yet been installed. Picture Taken with Airplane. Beautiful Picture .



Generation 3, 1988
This generation used a WFC that was housed inside the water tank (and outside at times) as well as the hydrogen gas injectors and the Hydrogen Gas Management System (GMS). During this time many new components were introduced such as: the Gas Processor, The Laser Distributor, The Laser Accelerator, The electrostatic water filter, The differential solenoids, The exhaust regulator, and a new VIC which did not use the autotransformer and alternator.
-Reference It runs on water documentary, Tech Brief Memo 422, Wo patent Control and Driver Circuits

Brake lights are mounted above the frame pipe.  GMS, VIC, and WFC pre-engineering phase boxes are installed.

Front bumper is replaced with a square low profile bumper.  Headlights are replaced with rectangle bumper mounted versions. 



Generation 4, 1992

This generation used the Water Fuel Injectors. Also the GMS unit was replaced with the Water Fuel Management System. The VIC was replaced with the Injector VIC (1 per injector). 
-Reference Stan Meyer 1992 interview, Tech Brief Memo 423 & 425

So far it looks like there were several different generations of the buggy. 

 If you have any more information on any of these generations please post what the info is and on what generation.

 Hope this helps us all to learn more about Stan’s tech.  

 Special Mention for Fire Pinto for the work on this thread.  To preserve it


 Now that we understand the major differences between different systems I have a question for you all:

What generations of the buggy have documented information that they ran on water? 

As far as I know, the first generation only idled the buggy. 
The second generation was able to run the buggy up to 55mph.

Then there was the generation which used the 3 inch tubes insulated with delrin plastic. As far as I know there is no documented information that this generation (or the generation which used the water fuel injectors) ever ran on water.

 Skip to 15:10 for the injectors, how he turns them on one by one.

Generation 5 1996 onward

This photo could be probably considered Generation 5 in my opinion, because it is from the estate sale.  Parts have been removed.  You can see the aluminum mounting plates where the 4 injector VIC coils would be mounted.  The red fuel tank has been modified to fit the components for the water injector system.  The tow-bar has been mounted to the back roll bars.  GMS box has been removed from the windshield.


In short parts of this video you see/hear the dune buggy running on injectors. 

Turn on the speakers and hear different RPMs during testing the engine. This version of the buggy, was the last version (red plastic water tank) with injectors.At 13:35 they have the scope sitting on an unmodified red gasoline fuel tank.  I think this test was running on gasoline, but testing the timing of the generation 3 laser distributor electronics prior to installing the fancy VIC card cage.

I agree with you. I think they tested the systems using gasoline as a starting point. The control circuits even have switches for gas use if I remember correctly
