HHO (oxygen and hydrogen from electrolysis) does have benefit to fuel efficiency in the order of 5%. That sounds familiar? The paper quoted in the original post of the ozone question gave a similar gain in it's result. What is assumed in the electrolysis production of the HHO being pure oxygen is incorrect. It is not all O2. A percentage of the oxygen is in the form of O3. If specific pollutants are introduced into the electrolyte, even more ozone is produced during electrolysis. It is this ozone that has the greatest affect on combustion reactivity. Hydrogen does form radicals of its own but it is greatly aided by the presence of the ozone.
