Mmmm.
You'll meet a lot of sceptics on this one - me included.

It works in theory, but you can never produce enough H2.
Producing it out of water by hydrolysis on the go is quite energy intensive (water being quite a stable molecule) and that electric energy has got to come from somewhere on your car.

I was getting around 30 mph although I didn't document it or anything. I took a trip shortly after and got about 50 mph.
I take it you meant 50mpg ?
It'd be a HUGE leap to go from 30mpg to 50mpg !

Keeping track of you fuel consumption is paramount if you want to have a good idea wether some modification is working or not.

So please enter your care in the Garage and start a fuel log.
Another good place to track your fuel use and other costs is
