I have had very good results with water injection on my diesel.
No need to waste time with HHO.
I am getting at least solid 4% improvement when towing on a very cheaply built rig that takes no more than refilling water to maintain and it only draws 4 amps 15% of the time as the pump cycles on and fills my surge tank.

Sticking with what works here.

You would be better off doing an alt delete if you are going to go through all that trouble. The alt delete has a history of good MPG gains.
