LPM / Water Usage Calculator


How much HHO is sufficient to improve fuel efficiency of an engine?

The question has been debated for a long time, and there is probably no definite answer. I say that because there is no precise way to measure the HHO realistically. There are just too many types of measuring devices being used, and each one of them provides different amounts. People are using oxygen meters, hydrogen meters, air meters, natural gas meters, welding gas meters, and even some hydroxy meters which are manufactured by reputable companies.

If you are using an Air meter to measure the HHO, then the amount of gas you are measuring is way more than what is actually being produced. So 1/2 LPM per Liter of engine displacement may be a good rule of thumb for you to use to.

If you are using an Oxygen meter to measure HHO, then the amount of gas you are measuring is still more than what is actually being produced. So 1/4 LPM per Liter of engine displacement may be a good rule of thumb.

If you are using my Cell Configurator to determine what Faraday says is capable of being produced, then 1/8 LPM is probably about as close to being correct as we can guess. I have witnessed 300 to 600 ML PM increase fuel efficiency on big V8 engines; without causing unwanted computer codes. This is not to say that 1/8 LPM is maximum efficiency; it is just a good starting point.

Is more better?
Well, yes, of course. But it comes at a cost. The harder the engine works, the less efficient it becomes. The hydrogen generator puts a load on the alternator, which in turn puts a load on the engine. The more HHO the engine gets, the less fuel it needs; assuming the emissions computer is accepting and allowing the HHO to do its thing. Engine Timing may need to be adjusted, but that is a given.

Running an engine on 100% HHO gas would be quite an accomplishment.
Especially when you consider that the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) is designed to breath in Air and mix it with fuel; in order to burn the fuel. The ICE is an Air Pump. HHO fuel does not need Air. The Air would dilute the fuel, which would weaken the power of the fuel; the explosive force that moves the piston - that turns the crank shaft - that turns the wheels eventually. What does all that mean? Well it means you will need greater amounts of HHO fuel than you would if the Air was left out.

I get asked, quite often, how much HHO do I need to run my engine, 100% on HHO gas?
I do not know how to calculate it, but I have been told that a 2 Liter engine needs about 35 LPM of HHO gas. That is about 17.5 Liters per 1000cc of engine displacement. That is a lot of gas if you are making it from a 12 volt power source. It would take 3,366 Watts; more than 280 amps at 12 volts. And that is just for a 1 Liter engine. That sounds like a lot of gas, and it is a lot of gas. Can it be accomplished? Sure; but is it worth it to you?



Estimating Water Use - Per LPM of HHO

I have been asked, many times, how much water the Cells use per hour. I think, now, I can shed some light on the subject. It is not an easy answer, but I think I have enough information to get you in the ball park.

We are told that, 1 Liter of water can make 1860 Liters of HHO gas.
That is, 1000 Milliliters of water can make 1860 Liters of HHO, or 1,860,000 Milliliters.
Thus, 1 Milliliter of water can make 1.86 Liters of HHO, or 1860 Milliliters.

LPM x 1000 / 1860 = Milliliters Per Minute of Water   x 60 = Milliliters Per Hour
