You brought up that you have installed a system in your own vehicle but you didn't expound on your experience. Did you see a difference and if so did
it nullify the cost, or at how many miles will it have nullified the cost?
When I first installed it, it played havoc on my computer system but with the help of a friend we got it running better than it ever had. I ran it for
about four months I didn't keep great records as far as gas mileage but I did see a difference it seemed like I was having to fill my tank less and
less. I added a another component which makes it almost impossible to tell you what has given me better gas mileage. I put a stainless steel tank in
my bed of my truck which has a slurry of potassium hydroxide, I throw empty beer cans and coke cans in with it and it creates pure hydrogen which I
run in conjunction with the fuel cell. Those things combined I have virtually doubled my gas mileage the only downside is cleaning out the stainless
tank every couple months.
When the potassium hydroxide eats the aluminum it leaves behind aluminum oxide which I throw in with my recyclables. For me it has been completely
What I would like to try to do is take a generator and see if I can loop the power back to a fuel cell and be able to document the results. One design
I have seen where someone had done this they added a fine mist of water into the engine to act as a coolant and increase the compression like a steam
To answer your question directly, yes I did see an increase in fuel mileage but it wasn't as much as I wanted that could also be due to the size of
the fuel cell I have installed. It really should have been bigger perhaps in the future I will build another one to accommodate.
I drive a 2001 Dodge ram 1500 4 x 4 with a 5.9 L engine and I am getting 27 to 31 miles per gallon considering I used to get about 14 miles per gallon
