Geet controversy v. fact -- sound concept
April 15, 2002
On Saturday I sent out a notice of the Geet technology that improves a car's gas mileage by 2-3
times while also producing cleaner emissions.
After sending that out, a friend brought to my attention that the Geet is not without its
controversy (see message by Joel Skousen below).
I then called my friend Welton Myers back, who had told me about the technology, and asked him about
this. We spoke at length. I wish you could each listen to this brilliant inventor (who is also
pursuing a number of other fascinating alternative energy developments as well).
In essence, he replied that the problem is not with the core concepts, but with various people who
are implementing the technology. He himself, many years ago, converted several cars and has always
seen at least some improvement -- sometimes as high as three times the efficiency. He also shared
with me some of the reasons the device advertised at geet.com
doesn't always work as well as it could.
Even though many working models are in circulation right now, the technology is still in its
development stages, and there are bugs to be worked out; and sometimes the greatest obstacles are
not technology but the egos and premature enthusiasm of the people who are promoting these things.
There are two main schools that promote this technology. Each is a little different from the other.
They of course know of each other and even cooperate sometimes.
Paul Pantone does the Geet, featured at www.geet.com "His
main problem," said Welt, "is that he does not control his drinking problem. He's great
man when he's sober." Paul's team runs a 40-hour training course in Idaho for individuals,
mainly mechanics, who wish to learn how to install the units.
The other main organization promoting this technology, the one that Welt prefers, is Dennis Lee's
United Community Services of America. See
This organization has even more controversy surrounding it, most of which has been cleared, but they
do a better job with the engine conversion kits (not called Geet).
My friend Welt is an authorized dealer for UCSofA, and invites interested individuals to schedule a
training class through him. The week-long course takes place in New Jersey and runs a couple of
times each month. He's mainly interested in getting people who could not just be trained to install
the units, but to actually teach classes locally to train other mechanics in the procedure.
Welt has some additional ideas on how to improve the performance of these conversions, that are not
currently implemented in either school. If you plan on pursuing this with either school, I would
strongly recommend that you get in touch with Welt.
Feel free to call him in New York. Welton Myers 716-328-4253.
You can tell him I sent you.

I think what we have in Dennis is the same kind of stuff we get with televangelists.
They are showman and know how to entertain, based on sound principles; but the upshot is their
integrity is lacking and their show is taken over by sensation. What began as a sincere effort
becomes a charlatan parade.
