Hydrogen on demand system?

Please link threads where this has already been discussed if this is not a new idea.

I saw on Facebook a video of some yahoo with a Mohawk and pony tail talking about "hydrogen on demand" by adding a teaspoon of baking soda to about a liter of distilled water, add electricity and boom! 50% better mpg, internal cleaning of the engine, more hp and torque and absolutely no emissions. Even says that the "engineers" will come out and install it on your car for you!

While i know the ad makes a lot of big promises it will never deliver, I'm curious if there is any merit to the idea

Not sure how to link videos thru Facebook, I'm sure it's nothing new but will try to find it on YouTube for reference.
