In a nutshell, the Hydro-Gen separates hydrogen gas from the natural hydrogen-oxygen mix in standard tap water (i.e. H²O). It then adds the resulting extracted hydrogen to the conventional air mix in a vehicle engine (e.g. gasoline, diesel, etc.) thus supplementing the expensive fuel with an additional low-cost (i.e. free) supplement -– the hydrogen extracted from the free tap water, of course!
How exactly does the Hydro-Gen Work?
How the Hydro-Gen works is actually pretty ingenious. The unit sends an electric charge through a liquid electrolyte comprised of water and Lye (or baking soda) which causes the hydrogen molecules to separate from the oxygen molecules in the water. It then captures the hydrogen and channels it into the engine via the air intake system.
The principle is diabolically simple, really. The introduction of this second fuel actually reduces the engine’s need for the primary fuel.

Thanks archangel. Thats what I was looking for. I know you can't get more energy pout of something than you put into it....yet; because it breaks the known laws of thermodynamics but I thought I would throw it out there anyway.
FI am very interested in the work Somender Singh is doing with grooves and how they create turbulence in the combustion chamber which imporves efficancy
and the work of Robert Krupa and his firestorm sparkplug invention/technology
I think those 2 technologies used in conjunction with one another have the potential to produce some amazing results.

Im interested in this groove tech too, although Im a tiny bit skeptical about their claim of lower emissions. The article talks about significantly increasing combustion temperatures...which, as far as I know, would increase NOx emissions, one of the gases we try to control with all our smog regulations and emission systems.
