power in than the power out, making it pointless
Why do you all keep saying this? I have a 1990 Chevy G-20 van with a 350 V-8 engine. Stock it gets about 14 mpg. In this day and age of high gas
prices, this van is not practical to drive, is it? About two years ago I sent off for a HHO Generator. A simply quart Mason jar with a plastic lid,
one 3/8 vacuum outlet, one vent, and two holes for electrodes. I use two 5/16 stainless bolts with stainless wire, three wires twisted together around
the bolts, one is Positive, the other Negative. In the jar I mix 2 ml of urine, that's right, pee, and fill the rest with clean water, I use natural
spring water myself. Bring this to almost a boil on the stove, and add one tablespoon of Arm & Hammer baking soda, stir until dissolved. Turn on the
switch, and you can see the bubbles come up, they even push up the tube that goes to the PCV port. The engine runs clean, the tailpipe is perfectly
clean, not a trace of carbon. the engine runs better, quieter, and now gets 20 mpg constant, 30 mpg on a good day, wet, moist, not to many hills, and
on a really good day it gets 40 mpg. I used to listed to the people always saying this don't work, but I thought to myself, "what if they are full
of it?" You can say it doesn't work all you want. I will just laugh as I cruise past the gas station.
is a kit like I bought.
Does it work? Damn right it works, saves us over $200 a month in gasoline. Is it easy to maintain? Not really. The electrolyte mix wears out after
100-150 miles, and must be replenished. A dirty, stinky brown substance collects in the jar, this comes right out with vinegar and a brush. Do the
electrodes last long? No. After only a few uses, the nickel is eaten away from the bolts, and then the acids begin to eat the bolts themselves. this
system is not for the lazy. But it does work really well.
