June 13, 2008Has any one tried one of these kits on a desiel.They say better fuel milage, burns cleaner and more power.check the website out water4gas.com Let me know what you think.

June 16, 2008i dont know much about it, but if it works it would be great
June 17, 2008I was wondering the same thing. I built a hydrogen generator last week for my company ranger, but i haven''t had time to put it in. I think it cost us like $50 for all the parts. Hopefully i can install it this week and if it works i may make one for my PSD.

June 21, 2008Guys, in short, this is another snake oil thing. I base this on the fact that you are taking normal water, breaking it down to what they refer to as HHO. All you do to make HHO is you add a finite amount of energy to break the water molecule into a lone hydrogen atom and an OH molecule. When you put these into the engine, they burn, reforming into water. Now, keep in mind the first law of thermodynamics, energy can not be created nor destroyed. So, if the motor makes 5 more hp because of the gases, then you had to use atleast 5 hp in the formation of the gases. I say atleast based on the fact that no system is 100% efficient. In the case of using electricity to break water into HHO, you are looking at a system that is about 50% efficient. So, in order for the gas to make 5 hp, you have to eat up 10 hp from the motor. So, how does this help your mileage? IF you can explain that to me, then I will change my stance.
Now, to truely make this system work, you need a decent setup. In short, you would need a solar panel in the neighborhood of about 10KW used solely for the formation of the HHO product. This would then need to be compressed (can be done using almost no power if you design your gas generator to work on high pressures (ie, in the neighborhood of 3,000 psi as this is the type of pressures that would be needed to give you adequate HHO for long trips without numerous fill ups). So, you are looking at a 10KW solar panel, a conversion system to convert the low voltage/high current DC to a higher voltage/lower current DC, an electrolysis system for conversion of water to HHO, a demineralizer system, and a storage system for high pressure gases. If you price this stuff, you will discover this becomes cost prohibitive unless you can get these parts dirt cheap *or* you are going completely hydrogen powered.
Should you need more info, just hollar. I know a thing *or* two about this.
