Directory of various technologies and resources relating to on-board electrolysis and other hydrogen sources which then inject that gas into the air intake of a vehicle to improve efficiency of the fuel combustion, whether it be gasoline or diesel or other fuels.

Such modifications usually also require compensatory adjustments in the fuel mixture algorithms of the vehicle, which entails modifying the vehicle's ECU.

Feature

Today this technology is being rediscovered due to higher fuel prices and concerns over global warming. People are learning that installing these type system in their current vehicle improves their gas mileage and reduces emission. In fact many people are getting better gas milage by converting their current vehicle into a Hydrogen/Gas or Hydrogen/Diesel Hybrid than they could by buying a new Gas /Electric Hybrid. This site provides information on how to tune your system to get the best MPGs.

It also has information on how to modify vehicles ECU for Hydrogen Systems to retard timing and reduce fuel delivered to the engine.

Technologies

Automobile Manufacturer-Implemented Hydrogen Boosting

  • Interview:Ronn Motors' Scorpion Aims to Optimize then License Hydrogen Boosting - Damon Kuhn, COO of Ronn Motors, maker of the new $150,000 green supercar, talks about how their company is well suited to finally build an ideal version of the on-board electrolysis technology that injects hydrogen into the air intake to catalyze a more efficient burn of the petrol, increasing a vehicle's mileage by 20-40% or much more. (FreeEnergyNow; August 18, 2008)

H from Renewables for H Boosting

  • Hydrogen Storage >
    Hrein Energy Dehydrogenation System - Hrein Energy Inc. is striving for commercialization of a storage system for wind power-derived hydrogen -- a method utilizing organic hydride as a high-efficiency high-density storage media for hydrogen obtained from renewable energies (such as wind power generation) through water electrolysis equipment.

  • Fuel Efficiency > Scooters / H Injection >
    Hydroxy Moped Project at University of Wisconsin-Madison - Some egineering students with faculty supervision undertook some testing of some already-efficient, 90 mpg Vespa scooters, adding an on-board electrolysis system, ducting the hydrogen into the air intake; and documented an additional 10% improvement in mileage, attributing it to catalyzing a "more complete combustion". (Perspective, UW-M; Spring 2009)

Chemical Processes

  • Fuel Efficiency > Hydrogen Injection >
    Cleaner fuel through hydrogen innovation - Normally, hydrogen fuel generators use electricity to divide molecules. Go Go Green LLC uses a chemical reaction that uses less energy. They can’t sell the device in the U.S. until it is certified by the California Air Resource Board and the EPA, but they can market the product internationally through their website. (Tracy Press, CA; May 29, 2009)

Aluminum Oxidation

Aluminum is oxidized in a chemical reaction that releases hydrogen gas.

  • AllH2 Just Add Water - Increase your gas mileage by 40 % or more. It takes only 3 hours to install the conversion kit to your car's existing fuel system. It modifies the car to idle on hydrogen and accelerate on gasoline. The galvanic hydrogen producer generates hydrogen from seawater. This cell is a combination of magnesium, aluminium and stainless steel.

Other Innovations

  • Featured: Fuel Efficiency > Hydroxy >
    Scooter runs on 100% Hydroxy, no gasoline - Grad student, Jake Wall, fitted a scooter with a Bob Boyce like electrolysis unit and was able to run the scooter (in the garage) on just the hydrogen-oxygen mixture, using half the energy input the engine normally requires. (PESN; Jan. 17, 2009)
  • Featured: Fuel Efficiency > Hydrogen Injection >
    Jugernut Power's Extreme HHO Resonance Generator - Marco Cruz has developed the way to produce large amounts of hydroxy gas by combining the technology of coil techniques and resonance. Available as a kit, the unit does not require electrolyte and uses stainless steel wool instead of stainless steel plating. (PESWiki; Oct. 14, 2008)
  • QSI-Nano® NiFe Product Profile Hydrogen Generation Electrodes - (36-page PDF) QSI has demonstrated that by using its nano nickel and iron particles it is possible to exceed the Department of Energy’s target with 85% energy efficiency by increasing the surface area of the active components of the hydrogen electrolyzer, without any CO2. (Quantum Sphere; May 1, 2008)

LPG Assist

  • Diesel/Gas Australia - This company has been able to do a fuel aspiration into the air intake for diesels. Normally, this is a dangerous condition, as once the heat of compression reaches the autoignition point of the fuel, uncontrolled combustion takes place, often well before top dead center. This system does not do it at all, which is amazing. Vaporized LPG is introduced into the air intake to augment the normal diesel fuel injection into the cylinder. The result is cleaner combustion and higher overall fuel mileage. -- Ken Rauen, Feb. 6, 2006
  • GreenPower Bi-Fuels - Bi-fuel is the principle of running two fuels in an engine simultaneously. Introducing a small amount of LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) into a diesel engine via the air inlet manifold has the effect of acting as a catalyst, causing the diesel to combust more effectively, burning more of the diesel.

Cautions

  • HHO
    Something bad - Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) with hydroxy meets real ice conditions. When a fantastic hydroxy unit (gallons per minute) meets with cold winter weather, bad things can happen. Stay tuned for the forensics on this one. (YouTube; Nov. 6, 2008)

Skeptics

    The One Million Dollar HHO Challenge - To win, fit an HHO system to a late model car (tuned and in good condition) so that a consistent 25% or greater improvement in fuel economy is obtained and maintained for six months, without causing any damage to the engine. Entrance fee: $5K USD. (PESWiki; Oct. 25, 2008)
  • Coast to Coast AM tries out HHO (Water4gas) system - Before installing the device under the hood of his Mustang, Danheiser calculated his gas mileage to be 17.99 mpg. After driving around with the device for a week his mileage went down to 16.56 mpg. (AutoblogGreen; July 18, 2008)
    • Reader comment at bottom - I decided to try one of these about two months ago, and have had much better results. I currently drive 700 miles a week. Prior to installation, I was getting between 29 and 32 MPG in my 2007 Aveo. For the first two weeks, I didn't see any improvement, then I installed the map sensor enhancer. Since then, my mileage has gone up to 32-36, while typically getting about 35.
  • 'Run Your Car On Water' Scheme Could Leave Consumers All Wet - Scientists say the idea is preposterous, with one saying the energy created would "not amount to a hill of beans." Note: This is a lawyer litigation feeler site {watch where you put those hands, mister!} looking for folks who feel victimized. (Consumer Affairs; July 17, 2008)
  • The Truth About Water-Powered Cars: Mechanic's Diary - Here’s the deal, people: There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch. Problem: It takes exactly the same amount of energy to pry those hydrogen and oxygen atoms apart inside the electrolysis cell as you get back when they recombine. I’m building a water-electrolyzer car—right now. The electrolysis cell assembly is on my workbench and ready to install, so stay tuned for the test results soon. If it works, then you can believe the hype. (Popular Mechanics; July 3, 2008)
