I want a little more feed back and on my proposed test before I e-mail them. I want a solid experiment to propose with no wiggle room.

One problem I see is a 200 amp alternator will only put out about 2400 to 2800 watts and draw a little more than 3.21 to 3.75hp and theory predicts the energy produced by the hydrogen will be far less than this. This could be considered to be in the margin of error of a repeated dyno run although on an actively running test it should be sufficient to show relative change. This could be used as a means to argue against the validity of the test.
