Hotsabi's Replication

Feature page of "Hotsabi's" replication, relevant to the OS:Bill Williams' Joe Cell. This is not a Joe Cell, but is classic Farraday electrolysis.

Hotsabi's e-Cell is a Joe-Cell-like variant that uses an electrolysis process to inject hydrogen and oxygen into the air intake of a vehicle, resulting in improved fuel economy of around 50%.


The e-Cell


The following ("Hotsabi's Hydrogen-injection Joe Cell") is modified from a pdf document Hotsabi posted in the files section of the fuelcell_hydrogen_electrolysis Yahoo!Group.

On April 19, 2006, he introduced this document at the JoeCell2 group with the following explanation (edited):

: "They are what some call 'stage two' of a joe cell: strictly hydrogen shot into the air/fuel mixture. I would have loved to see these cells run a vehicle alone but they do not. However, they do appear to violate the established rules in that energy from an alternator is improving fuel economy."

Hotsabi's Hydrogen-injection Joe Cell

“HoTsAbI?? - a member of the (former) Yahoo ‘egaspower’ discussion Group has developed an electrolysis unit which has raised his average mpg from 18 to 27 (50% increase) on his 1992 5-litre Chevy Caprice.

The following two photos are of his professional installation, which he says works very well:

The unit draws only 15 amps, which is easily handled by the existing alternator. The construction uses ABS plastic with Sodium Hydroxide (“Red Devil?? lye, 1 teaspoon to 8 litres of distilled water) and the gasmix is fed directly into the air-intake filter of the car engine. The electrodes are stainless steel, with the negative electrode forming a cylinder around the positive electrode:

The circuit is wired so that it is powered up only when the car's ignition switch is closed. A relay feeds power to the electrolyser which is three inches (75 mm) in diameter and about 10 inches (250 mm) tall. The electrolyser circuit is protected by a 30-amp circuit breaker. The electrolyser has several stainless steel wire mesh screens above the water surface.

The output of the electrolyser is fed to a steam trap, which is fitted with several stainless steel wire mesh screens, and then into a safety bubbler, through a one-way valve:

The bubbler also has stainless steel wire mesh screens which the gas has to pass through before it exits the bubbler. The gas is then passed through a compressor-style water trap to remove any remaining moisture, and is injected into the air intake of the vehicle.

(Not shown in the diagram.) The containers are protected by pop-out fittings which provide extra protection in the extremely unlikely event of any of the small volumes of gas being ignited by any means whatsoever.

The ammeter is used to indicate when water should be added to the electrolyser, which is typically after about 80 hours of driving. This is done through a plastic screw cap on the top of the electrolyser cap (shown clearly in the first photograph).

This unit is now available commercially. If you want to buy one, then send an e-mail with “e-cell?? in the title, to [ hotsabi {at}] asking for availability and details.

Update : "I no longer sell these but do want to share info and details free." -- Hotsabi (April 19, 2006)

Question -- what about installation instructions? : A. "If a person doesn't know how to do the installation portion of this based on the pictures, then they don't know enought to run one of these things in their car, and they shouldn't make the attempt." -- Hotsabi (Apri. 20, 2006)
