I don't think this is the typical browns gas device that you can get from dodgy websites... they claim he has won several awards for this invention, so there must be something more to it. I saw this video a couple of months ago and I was fairly surprised to see it actually made the news. If one highschool student can do this imagine what the words best scientists could do if they really tried... we have been stuck with this damn internal combustion engine for like 150 years now... that's completely absurd imo, it makes me angry... when the hell are we going to advanced past this stupid relic and stop burning excessive amount of fossil fuels.
HHO ie browns gas..

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?

I think it is high time that the automotive industry start using some of this decades old technology to improve gas mileage. Where's the downside to the consumer? I can see why oil companies would not want to have it incorporated in vehicles because they would lose money but as consumers shouldn't we be demanding this. It isn't a question of does it work because we know it does. I would be very happy with 20% or 30% better gas mileage. I would probably drive more.
I have personally put one of these in my truck and it has helped my gas mileage so I know it works. The only major modification I had to make was buy what they call a PMA which stands for permanent magnet alternator. I also had to have my friend add a device that fooled my computer because it thought it was running to rich or to lean.
One thought I had about that engine the high school student made was if he hooked it up to a small generator I wonder how much electricity you could generate all of a gallon of gas. When dealing with vehicles you are putting strains on the engine at different speeds. I would think that having a engine run at a steady pace generating electricity would be a easy task comparatively.
