As a scientist I am calling B.S. on this one. If it sounds too good to be true it most assuredly is. Notice the complete lack of actual tech data.

That is not entirely true.
Today's old style electrolysis is very inefficient, and slow, I agree.
However that does not mean it is impossible to speed up the process and find/discover a better style of electrolysis that could use less energy. There are literally thousands of different ways to create electrolysis devices, and not every single way has been tested or discovered.
You never know, someone could find that "sweet spot" that will produce enough hydrogen on the fly with very little power input. Some people claimed to already have done that.
IT IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE.

Thanks for the response. A couple of things - as I haven't tried this, I can't confirm it - but the text indicates it is NOT conventional electrolysis - which as you have stated is inefficient.
The other thing you brought up was storage - but this burns the fuel as soon as its made - there is no storage except for the water - a small amount of vapor is stored at the top of the cyclinder at 30kPa - as it is burned, it is replced.
IM somewhat an amateur auto mechanic. hobby rather. Water goign into yuor combustion chamber isnt that good an idea. why? BEcause engines DO rust, number 1. Number 2, rare, but yuo could risk hydrolocking the pistons up..that would equal dead engine/and or time for new one.

Cool.I don't know about that page in question,never built it...but i've always wondered what happened to this guy and burning salt water with frequencies.
Haven't heard much about him or if it was fake etc..

It sounds like you are talking about some sort of Ionic separation (Akin to NaCl separating by ions in water solution) and this is a new bit of information to me.
What I am trying to say, is that if this cell produces more energy in the form of HHO gas than it takes in to MAKE that gas... then it must extract that energy from somewhere...
Therefore, the water is NOT a necessary part of the actual reaction, and given enough understanding, it should be possible to create an electric generator capable of harnessing... whatever power source that this cell harnesses.
The water, as has been said before... is just a catalyst.
