Smile Hello everyone!!

Hi, I am Chris and I am new to this site and forums in general. I am always looking for ways to make my vehicle more fuel efficient. I recently installed a device that uses water to increase my millage. I think it's awesome really cool to be honest. Anyways I look forward to hearing what people have to say hear and learn.

Welcome aboard, Chris.

How does it work, and does it really help ?
Did you maybe test the mileage before and after this modification ?

What is does is it takes the hydrogen out the water (H2O) through hydrolysis and produces a the hydrogen gas. The gas is channeled to your intake where it goes into the combustion chamber. Now that the hydrogen gas is mixed with the regular air it makes your gas burn more efficient and complete for lack of better word. The gas then causes more of a combustion so therefore you have more force. So now your engine needs less gas to do the same effort causing your fuel efficiency to increase. I was getting around 30 mph although I didn't document it or anything. I took a trip shortly after and got about 50 mph. I dont have cruise control but I had a steady foot at 65 mph.

Mmmm.
You'll meet a lot of sceptics on this one - me included.

It works in theory, but you can never produce enough H2.
Producing it out of water by hydrolysis on the go is quite energy intensive (water being quite a stable molecule) and that electric energy has got to come from somewhere on your car.

I take it you meant 50mpg ?
It'd be a HUGE leap to go from 30mpg to 50mpg !

Keeping track of you fuel consumption is paramount if you want to have a good idea wether some modification is working or not.

So please enter your care in the Garage and start a fuel log.
Another good place to track your fuel use and other costs is

Welcome to the site!

you will find that your hydrogen out the water "mod" has been tried many a time. I have yet to see hard ABA data that shows it helping. I keep an open mind but I need to see the data to believe it.

Get me some reliable data though and I can add it to our wiki of car mods (in the pending more data to be proven or in the hoax section depending on the data): Car MPG Efficiency Modifications Main - EcoModder
