How HHO Generators Work
The generator converts
water into burnable vapors. It uses a chemical process of electrolysis that
is easily powered by the charging system of an internal combustion engine.
Hello, I'm interested in this generator and have
seen others fitting these to vehicles but cannot understand how it would
reduce fuel cost, I may be missing an obvious part here but how would
the hydrogen being delivered to the inlet manifold lower the
predetermined petrol or diesel delivery? In other words the hydrogen
would reach the combustion chamber ready to combust with the normal
petrol/ diesel fuel but you wouldn't of saved any petrol/ diesel
quantity because the engine doesn't know that there is hydrogen in the
system and would not automatically lower fuel trim to suit the addition.
Also would the hydrogen being more volatile pre-detonate before
conventional combustion of the original fuel causing the engine to run
The fuel trim, as you state it, is your
You mash down on the fuel peddle to get the
vehicle to respond to your action.
The reaction is so normal to you, that you
don't think about it doing anything but make the vehicle Go.
More on this later.
When a welder wants to cut a piece of steel,
he/she adds more oxygen to the fuel in order to get a hotter flame; a
It is the oxygen that allows the chemical
process of burning to take place. Without the an oxidizer there would be
no flame. By controlling the amount oxygen, the welder is able to adjust
the flame for his needs. Sometimes the gas he is using is not volatile
enough for the job; so he mixes another more volatile gas -- and adjusts
the oxygen. If you add oxygen to a burning match or a burning candle,
the flame will get taller and the color will become brighter. Are you
Our engines are designed to be Air Pumps.
They draw in Air, then push it out the exhaust. Why? Because 10% to 20%
of that Air is oxygen. Oxygen (an Oxidizer) needs to be mixed with the
Fuel in order to get the chemical reaction of Fire.
The air plays a Major part in the combustion
efficiency. Our fuel delivery systems are designed to control the
mixture. By controlling the amount of air, one can control
the volatility of the burn. The amount of Air is metered to the amount
of fuel. The EPA has established that 14.7 parts Air are needed for each
part of fuel vapor. They call that a Stoichiometric mixture; meaning it
provides the cleanest burning of emissions, overall, and thus they
mandate the engine manufacturers to abide by their standards. That is
At 14.7 parts Air, the fuel does not
completely burn. Excess fuel makes it into the exhaust system, and a
Government mandated Catalytic Converter is used to burn it , before it
exits the exhaust pipes. That is not Fuel Efficiency. It causes us to
buy more fuel; not less fuel. That is a Scam.
It is a simple fix, right; just add more
oxygen. Well, that is not so easy. You see, the EPA computerized our
Fuel Delivery systems when engine manufacturers got rid of Carburetors
and replaced them with Fuel Injectors; We no longer have control of the
Air / Fuel Ratio. In fact, it is a violation for us to tamper with the
adjustment. They have their hands in our pockets, and we can not do much
about it. We are forced to pay the price at the pumps. At the pumps, we
are Taxed in order to feed the system.
So how can HHO increase fuel efficiency?
Remember the Air! The percentage of Oxygen varies --- and the
computerized emissions system adjusts the fuel according to the oxygen
level. By adding more oxygen to the contents of the air, more oxygen
makes it to the combustion chambers. without changing the Air/Fuel
Ratio. Plus, the air is more volatile now because it also contains more
Hydrogen Gas. When Hydrogen burns, it also burns any fuels that are
around it. We now have a hotter, more efficient burn; and less wasted
fuel makes it into the exhaust system.
I need to take this a little further.
Engines are engineered to operate within a certain heat range; the
higher the compression ratio, the hotter the burn that is allowed. If
the Air/Fuel ratio is too high, the heat can be too much, thus the
pistons can be damaged. HHO solves this problem. You see, when Hydrogen
burns, the by-product is pure Water. In the combustion chambers, water
is turned to steam. The steam cools , and cleans, the combustion
temperatures and the exhaust.
Engine manufacturers have know this for 100
years. Do the research. Seek and Yee shall find. The amount of energy in
one part of fuel vapor is more than 10 times what we are allowed to use.
Ford built a carburetor that got 250 MPG on a big V-8 engine.
In conclusion, the process of using HHO to
increase fuel efficiency has drawn a lot of criticism from those whom
oppose it. The EPA has mandated computerized sensors to monitor engine
fuel efficiency. Newer engines recognize the combustion temperatures and
adjust for maintaining fuel efficiency --- so we use more fuel than we
need. Do the research.
If you plan on using HHO, I suggest
searching the web, for HHO information on your particular vehicle. You
are looking for ways of beating the computer, without violating EPA
If you want better fuel economy, you can get
2 to 5 mpg more just by getting rid of those old technology spark plugs.
Replace them with Pulstar Pulse Plugs. They create a Plasma arc that
burns more of the fuel around it than any spark plug.
Hope this Helps !
Once your engine has started, a Go-no-Go
sensor needs to signal a relay to turn on the hydrogen generator. This is a
safety feature that enables the generator to operate only while the engine
is running. Should the engine stall or stop for any reason, the generator
needs to turn off; even if the ignition switch is left on.
Now that the hydrogen generator is turned on, it begins using your
vehicles charging system to pass an electrical charge through a series of
electrodes that are separated by water chambers. The water contains a
catalyst which is used to promote hydrogen and oxygen vapor production on
the surface area of the electrodes.
The vapors produced in the hydrogen generator are then
added to the air that enters the engine. The addition of these vapors
richens the metered air that mixes with the fuel vapors. The metered air is
now more volatile; oxygen content is higher; hydrogen fuel has been added;
moisture content has increased. All of this enables a more complete burning
of the fossil fuel. By burning more of the fuel, inside the combustion
chamber, harmful hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide emissions are reduced. The
engine becomes more efficient; less unburned fuel escapes out the exhaust;
carbon buildup is removed; combustion chamber temperatures are reduced; and
harmful greenhouse gases are reduced to levels that are less destructive to
A Hydrogen Generator turns water into burnable vapors;
the engine ignites them in the combustion chamber, and the heat that is
produced reforms the vapors back into water. In other words, we use water to
burn fuel. We use water vapor to clean and cool the combustion chamber. The
end result, we use water to reduce the "Greenhouse" exhaust emissions. We
can do this - without tampering with emission sensors and without voiding
your vehicles Warranty.
It is so simple. The oxygen content of our engines metered air to fuel
ratio - is not high enough to burn all of the metered fuel vapors. By adding
more oxygen to that 14.7 parts of metered air, we are increasing the
oxidizer content of the air without changing the air fuel ratio. The
increase burns up all or most all of the metered fuel. But don't forget the
hydrogen. It is a fuel that burns other fuels around it.
