Hydrogen fuel enhancement hydrogen affects the burn rate of fuels and lean combustion capabilities of internal combustion engines. For Diesel applications "When the hydrogen enriched air is compressed, the diesel fuel is introduced with a resulting improvement in fuel efficiency and maximized combustion of the fuel". Fuel enhancement has the potential to substantially reduce pollution emissions of internal combustion engines research in 2004 concluded that "HC-emissions as well as NOx-emissions could be reduced to near zero". A 50% reduction in gasoline consumption, at idle, was reported by numerically analyzing "the effect of hydrogen enriched gasoline on the performance, emissions and fuel consumption of a small spark-ignition engine". When Brown's Gas burns it forms water, resulting in cooling the combustion chambers of engines, effectively allowing for greater compression ratios (see: There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1]). Hydrogen "addition can guarantee a regular running", of the engine "with many advantages in terms of emissions levels and fuel consumption reduction". Hydrogen fuel enhancement can be optimized by implementing established There was an error working with the wiki: Code[2] concepts, and at minimum to achieve an actual increase in gas mileage the air/fuel ratio needs appropriate modification. "Overall, increases in engine efficiency are more dominant than the energy loss incurred in generating hydrogen, resulting in improved fuel economy for the system as a whole". This is supported by computational analysis that "has marked the possibility of operating with high air overabundance (lean or ultra-lean mixtures) without a performance decrease, but with great advantages on pollution emissions and fuel consumption".
