There is a debate on whether one should use a smack booster that keeps the Hydrogen and Oxygen gases together or a standard elecrolysis device that separates the gases. In the latter, only the hydrogen would enter into the engine. It all has to do with the amount of oxygen present in the combustion chamber. On one hand, extra oxygen would be good for the burn in the chamber, but the O2 sensor thinks the engine is running lean and will try to add more fuel. This dictates the use of an electronic device to fool the ECU. On the other hand, hydrogen alone uses more of the oxygen in the chamber, and the ECU will think the engine is running rich and will lean out the mixture. I have yet to see anyone try both methods to see which one is better.
