HHO Mod, Does it work?

Been a while since I've been on here, sorry.

Saw this:

took me to HHOSuperPack - Multiple Hydrogen Generator Plans

Is there any legitimacy to this? Is it worth trying?

Can someone link me to a good free resource where I could do all of this on my own without paying a middle man for information?

Five years and you haven't found the search box yet?

You should do your own homework.

If you have to pay someone for hack job plans to build a mod, its a scam.

Free HHO Plans & Rating of their effectiveness

The hard part isn't making the HHO, it's getting any fuel economy benefit from it.

Should HHO work? Yes, in theory. Does it work though? Usually not. You might have a small chance of getting a small improvement. By small were talking less than 1 mpg here. But even a small improvement is unlikely, actually I should say highly unlikely.

One if the biggest issues with systems like that is that your cars computer is just going to adjust for the HHO so you won't get any gain.

To those who took the time to give something constructive-THANKS

To those who spoke about a search button-there is no reason to be a jerk. I asked a question-if you don't want to answer then don't answer. I looked but I'm looking for answers from people who have more experience in it than I do.

It's not the jerk factor. We just get tired of answering the same old questions time after time, after time, after time, after time, etc ad nauseum. Possibly the most beat to death waste of bandwidth on the internet. It was tested professionally by one of the major US TV networks, system bought and professionally installed at a cost of thousands, then taken to an EPA lab and tested with and without the system functioning.

No benefit.
