There is some debate going on about how to make an efficient and cost effective water-fuel system for vehicles, as well as home appliances. Many people are quite skeptical about water fuel systems, HHO or hydro-fuel technology (or whatever you wish to call it) for domestic use. However, there are numerous companies beginning to offer water-fuel kits which can be adapted to vehicles. There are also manuals guiding the consumer on how to do it himself. Guides are great. With them you get the choice between a DIY project or installing a kit.
Here, we will attempt to explain the concept and technical workings of water-fuel and HHO systems and then investigate what the consumer should be looking for when evaluating the various systems on offer. Finding the right system for you is all important. Make sure you check out at least half a dozen. Also look for offers which promise a refund if you’re not happy. That way, you’ll never lose out.
Frequently, water-fuel technology is founded on splitting water actually in situ, on board a vehicle. It then utilizes the resulting split hydrogen and oxygen gases not to power the vehicle, but rather to increase the efficiency of its gasoline (petroleum) combustion. Vehicles running solely on water encounter some basic difficulties which are problematical to surmount, while a system that reduces gas consumption maintains the vehicle’s performance while increasing miles per gallon by up to 50%. That’s good going.
Most water-fuel technology is designed as do-it-yourself systems. That’s nothing to worry about; it’s what normally happens with great new ideas in their infancy. You should find that any decent system will be especially engineered with beginners in mind, for people with no or little automotive experience. Generally no specialist auto tools should be required and costs are kept to an absolute minimum. A finished and fully functional system should come in at a price tag of under $120. Installation time is normally well under an hour if instructions are followed properly.
Most importantly, any decent HHO system should be able to be removed within a minute or two, without in any way affecting the normal or pre-existing operation of the vehicle. No modifications to the factory-installed engine should be required, nor to their computer and fuel injection systems. Virtually anyone should be able to install an HHO system and with no concerns that it will in any way adversely affect their vehicle if they decide they don’t want it. It effectively means anyone can have a go.
As far as the water fuel technology is concerned, if you’ve never fitted such a device before, it is probably best to look for a unit where the electrolyzer, bubbler and water reservoir have all been combined. It will save time and complications. You can find suppliers via the link at the end of this article.
Keep an eye out for systems incorporating coiled or spiraled electrode wires as opposed to flat plates or spiraled plates. The magnetic vortex generated by a coil improves water splitting. This means that less power will be drawn from the vehicle’s electrical system, improving overall efficiency and reducing costs even further.
A number of major factors all complement each other in producing an efficient split of water into hydrogen and oxygen. These include direct current flowing via electrode wires to the water, the magnetic vortex produced by the shape of the electrodes, along with the vacuum caused by the engine. All these factors work to produce a more complete and thus effective combustion.
So what if combustion is improved? What’s the big deal? Well, two things are obvious. Better combustion equals better MPG which, in turn, equals a heavier wallet at the end of each week. And secondly, improved combustion means fewer emissions and thus less pollution.
Let’s have a look at a couple of facts. Virtually all modern-day gas powered internal combustion engines are only around 75% efficient. Improve that figure to very near 100% and the financial benefits become obvious. Then, around 80% of gas used in an average family car goes not to power the vehicle at all, but, because of the design, is instead unburnt, producing pollution and carbon emissions.
Hybrid water and gas powered motoring is now so easy, cheap and risk free, it is a wonder that so few of the population have taken advantage of its financial and environmental benefits. You may want to check out more of the facts at the blog quoted below.
