A modern tractor modified according to water doping!

Here is the testimony of a modification on a modern New Holland tractor of 75 hp Turbo Diesel. This page is from the site Quanthomme
Our reactions are inserted in italics.
Here is a new modified tractor like the 3 tractors of Mérindol (the 55, 56 and 57 to see in the base site on http://www.quanthomme.org )
The differences are that it is recent (2002) and turbo.
It is a New Holland TN75, 4 wheel drive.
The adaptation was done in 2h30 like the others. It "bubbles" from 1000rpm and it became quieter after 30 minutes of walking. On the other hand, no big differences to the fumes because it is recent and hardly smoked before, but there will be less odors in greenhouses.
Regarding the Mérindol tractors (55, 56 and 57 mentioned above) , the Massey 140 now consumes 3,2 l / hour at full load (between 6,5 and 8l / h according to the Massey dealer) and there is no hot smoke anymore (rag test plus white than white!) ditto for the Ford 2000.
After the first week of use:
Consumption: 219 liters for 41,4 h of work quite intense, tillage 6,5 7 km / h, Canadian harrow 2,5 m, subsoiler 2 body. (ie 5.3 l / h approximately)
For equivalent work, according to the seller, the tractor should have consumed 7,5 l / h.
This tractor, fully loaded (workshop test bench) should consume a little less than 9l / h.
This value is underestimated: a diesel engine has a specific consumption of 5 cv.h / l, an engine of 75 cv must therefore consume 75 / 5 = 15 l / h at full load.
Note also that the system consumes a little more than 2 liters of water / hour.
Our remarks : This testimony which seems to prove that the system would not only work on old engines but only a passage on a test bench with exact knowledge of the load and comparison with the original data could confirm these results and give them scientific rigor which is so lacking in the development of the process!
