Tilley Claims Finally Busted!

From KeelyNet news; 05/18/06 - Carl Tilley Update - Independent investigation questions invention
2003, he told Channel 4 that his car, his ATV and even his boat never
need gas, and they don't need to be charged. Tilley convinced investors
to give him $400,000, implying a big pay-off was close. "We do have one
offer right now to buy, sight unseen, all the technology, for two
billion," claimed Tilley in 2003. Since our first series of stories,
the TBI raided the Tilley compound and confiscated his electric
inventions. The state then hired Dr. Saeed Foroudastan, an MTSU civil
and mechanical engineer, to do an analysis of the Tilley Black Box and
Electric Vehicle. Dr. Foroudastan had high hopes that Tilley was onto
something big, but was disappointed when he started doing research on
He tested the DeLorean that Tilley said could make it to
California. But during the test, the vehicle ended up not being able to
make it out of town and ended up traveling only 18 miles. Dr.
Foroudastan tested Tilley's the magic box and it died after just 64
minutes. He concluded Tilley's invention "borders on science fiction"
and that his claim is "intentionally fraudulent or grossly misguided."
In September, Tilley was sentenced to two years probation for the sale
of unregistered securities. Fuller hoped Tilley would get a tougher
sentence, but he could not get a fraud conviction. No investors would
testify against Tilley. "During our handling of this case, we never
found a single investor who was willing to come into court and say they
had been defrauded," said Brian Fuller, Assistant District Attorney.
Fuller speculates they are either embarrassed or still hoping their
investment will pay off.
05/18/06 - Results of the States' Test of the Tilley Spinner
of Dan York. - JWD) Carl B. Tilley claimed to have designed and
produced an apparatus the output of which would be three times greater
than its input. The study below analyzes this claim and tests its
validity. It is believed that the claims of Mr. Tilley are
intentionally fraudulent or grossly misguided. "During the inspection
of the components in the black box, the alternator (fig. 5) was
inspected and compared to a standard alternator (fig. 4). The internal
energizing coil had been removed and replaced with a permanent ring
magnet, eliminating the requirement of an energizing current to the
coil. Although slightly increasing the alternator’s efficiency, the
modification limits the alternator’s ability to regulate voltagethe
advantage of an alternator over a generator. This particular
modification is not unique to the Tilley black box. Permanent magnet
(PM) alternators by Hornet Power Systems can be purchased online. (See
attached printout accessed at

that the Tilley black box performs in a manner consistent with Tilley’s
claims of a three-to-one ratio of output to input. In addition, the
wiring of the gauges in the car to read an approximate three-to-one
ratio of output to input regardless of the operational status of the
charger is indicative of additional lack of understanding.
