What's possible? Being fined for HHO, or creating efficiency from inefficiency, or perhaps just being waisted?

Possible to improve FE? Yes, but not by much, and for a lot of money, and most of all: not from a cell in a jar!
A lot of HHO cells (the crappy ones like W4G) are much better steam machines that HHO generators. And some HHO enthusiasts are thinking that some of the gains are from the steam. Steam is cheap in an ICE, why make it off the alternator when you have the 800F exhaust sitting there?

Frank Lee,
at the moment I'm am living proof it's possible... .... possible to be wasted (I wish there was a more drunk looking emoticon than that, so pretend that guy is a little more red, only has one eye closed, and that's half a sandwich found on the sidewalk hanging out of his mouth)

Question Very minimal gains with HHO

I used to own a 2003 Kia Sorento with it's 3.5 V6. It was a gas hog. When gas went up to almost $5.00 per gallon I had to do something. I tried a HHO system. I purchased the system from a group known as backyard builders of tampa. The system was nice and was not cheap looking. I installed it and it seemed to work. I put a lighter on the tube and the flame would get a little bigger and then pop. On the Kia I saw very little improvement in mpg. The customer service of backyard builder was great. I was on the phone with them constantly and they would give me different things to try to make the system more efficent. We did a pump for the flow of the H2O and these electrical components on the o2 sensors. The mpg on the Kia improved a little more but it finally got to the point where the only way to get anymore out of the system was to have software for the car's computer made to cut back on the fuel supply from the injectors dramatically.
HHO systems do work, but very minimally. It would be cool to put one on a hybrid vehicle.
