“Bosch uses water to save petrol”

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

German car supplier Bosch has developed a technology to save cars’ petrol consumption by injecting water into combustion engines, reports Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. The “water boost” technology reduces fuel consumption by at least four percent, and Bosch says it shows there is still room for improvement in combustion technology. In a commentary in the same newspaper, Susanne Preuß writes the new technology could be a boon for car companies, car drivers and the climate.
