I don't know if you read my reply but I don't allow for automatic shut off from the gas station. I fill up to the top of the neck. and the sample size of 30 miles was just the route I took on about 10 tests which all showed between a 10 to 20% increase with HHO. More stringent testing would have been used, but my dad was in town for only about 2 weeks so we didn't have a lot of time for testing. I won 2nd place in my local science fair. All the engineers I spoke with there were highly intrigued and didn't flat out refute my idea. Instead of criticizing everything, they gave suggestions and had open minds to try and figure out what is going on. Cruise control allowed for no placebo. If it was a one time test, I would think it was error, but the test was conducted many times with the same result. But I will definitely go for longer trips now that I am 16 and have my license so I don't have to make my dad drive for hours on end without a destination. Again, I'm just trying to keep an open mind and find an explanation for the results.

Old mechanic- I would love to use a 5 gas exhaust analyzer to compare before and after, but I'm not rich, so I don't have one of those in my garage. I did get the ohio e-check test when I first got my car, but I doubt a comparison 2 years later will be accurate at all, but I when I need to renew it, I will run it through with the HHO running. I'd be real interested in seeing what happens to the emissions. You're probably right about the NOx, I won't know until I try it.
