I agree with the "way forward", but have abandoned any curiosity about free hydrogen. There is nothing more to be learned on the subject.

Wow thats one hell of a saving. assuming my calculations were correct.
Yeah, 1 liter at about 1500psi is 250W. Good luck generating that much from a generator.

If hho worked it would be great we could all run our car on water and in emergencys im sure we could get away with the occasional p**s in the tank to get us home. ITS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN except in small pocket areas where they like to feel good about themselves regardless of the cost.
Not too hard to work out the numbers yourself. It simply makes NO sense.
I'm not coasting, I'm shifting slowly.
