Question H + HO = 25% More HP

I saw an ad in a magazine for this, claiming "We guarantee to increase your mpg's by at least 25%".

So, for those who may be interested in something like this, there's a chance you won't be tossing all your money away for nothing.

AquaTune.com - AquaTune Water Injection Systems


My personal beliefs are that H introduction to intake airflow may increase combustion, but as of yet I've done no such testing. This setup apparently combines H and water injection - which could bring different, if not favourable, results.

Appreciate the voluntary unicorn classification. Nice to see they have testimonials instead of those boring crackpot "theories" or truthy "facts"....

OTOH, that darn rash just won't go away.

Its a bit like HHO - although maybe less Unicorn curry flavoured.

I have to ask myself if these systems were so good, why aren't manufacturers fitting them?

But it's both! Water injection AND electrolysis, or to the more informed, a more inefficient form of bubbler that makes steam too.

I'll answer that too then, since no one else is jumping to defend. They don't work, and that's why they aren't standard issue.

There is no A-B data shown, of course. The "guarantee" is subject to restocking fees, ludicrous as they should not be selling used units. They also will charge for "repairs" on returned systems, so my guess is they will not be issuing very much of your original purchase.

Bottom line, you could buy one and document no mpg gains, return it under the "guarantee" and they will still make money, and you will still lose money Forget about any class action stuff about false advertising, as they would surely make the claim the users did not install the units correctly.

Next they will have HH0, water and epicycles. And then more and more levels of epicycles.

Monty python will end up doing a sketch about all the epicycles.
