It tricks the motor into thinking it's got enough fuel from the pump and doesn't push as much up, because the hydrogen is being injected into the motor via intake. What you have to keep in mind is the longer it runs (hydrogen injection) the bigger the chance it has to explode the cell.
i agree with everything but the cell exploding they guy def knows what hes talking about i have seen his **** and it worked awsome

The longer you extract the hydrogen the more air space you create with the water level lowering. So you see what I'm saying is when it lowers it creates a larger and larger combustion chamber and if it's not COMPLETELY sealed and air gets in there when the electricity hits it, it becomes a highly flammable combustion chamber, thus exploding lol

ok good point you so need a sealed cell of some sort and a way to pipe the hydrogen into the intake and a you have to keep it full of water

Yeah, other than that it'll work just fine... I'd probably fill it once a day, I can't imagine it deteriorating that quick lol

I'm in favor of diesel-electric hybrids and electric hybrids.

While you still won't be using gas with electric cars, think about it... You still have to power or charge the vehicle somehow, it's going to come out of your pocket for the electricity bill. Not to mention they can't make them as powerful as a gas. I'll continue to buy gas.

hence hybrids. Although the Tesla Roadster proves that pure electrics are promising.

ok, once again i say
"Gee, thats all there is to it?"

Guys, if it was really that simple, don't you think people would be doing it regularly? You don't just plug your battery into a tank of water and presto, make hydrogen.

No, you have to pass it through aluminum and stainless... opposites each other... It's really not hard at all... People just don't know all that much about it

Well why don't you do it if it is so simple.

So the Hydrogen snake-oil theme comes up yet again. Sheesh...
I have a more realistic approach...
Lets all just only eat pork and beans, stick an enema plug where the sun don't shine, and supply our own gas. That would be a cheaper solution, and give us our fiber as an added benefit.
What a great way to escape a booring conversation, "excuse me, I need to go fuel my truck!"

I don't have the time. I would, but school takes up a lot of my time.

I'm waiting for my buddy to get it in his truck and work everything out, then he's gonna do a write up on it

I laugh every time I read someone blaming the oil companies or the President for the prices. Get real, it's Americans that keep buying it that force it up. Of course Americans are too lazy to walk, ride a bike or even commute but they can ***** all day long while waiting in line at Starbucks for their $6 Latte with the motor running.
Not to fear, Americans will never get together and cut down the use of gas. If 1 million barrels sat at the docks everyday because of low sales the price would go down.
People say how much better it was in the 50's and 60's. Well back then I remember watching people walk to work at the 2 biggest plants in town. They also carried their lunches instead of buying lunch everyday.
I ride my bicycle in summer to work. I get great gas mileage.

Yeah, I know just like people that say they can't stop smoking there will be a whole bunch of excuses posted why people can't walk, bicycle or commute to work. What would be nice is see an excuse I haven't seen or heard yet.

The futures market is what drives the prices up. People sit there thinking how much whiny Americans will pay. Sure looks like they have been doing a great job so far. If you were able to sell gas at $3.25 a gallon instead of $2.25 gallon what price would you sell it at? Common business sense.
Well you're somewhat accurate. The current president and his Father both own several oil companies. Biography stated that on national TV when it aired the Biography of George H. Bush not too long ago. The reason I don't walk or ride a bike is because I can barely walk due to bad knees and 3 slipped lower discs in my back. I just recently had knee surgery for the 3rd or 4th time(Can't really remember since I've had so many). So that's the reasons I can give. The ultimate fuel saver is WEIGHT REDUCTION.

Here's what I think and know. Hydogen is way too dangerous and it's expensive to to convert your truck to do that. Fuelsavers that are advertised such as the Scamado, Fuel catalysts and "special Filter magnets" are worthless and considered cash in the trash. Start with a Mazda B3000 series donor truck or the 2000 series and strip it down to the chassis. Go with all fiberglass body components and light guage aluminum floor pans. No AC, stereo, or any other creature comforts and you'll have something that will flat out fly and you'll double your MPG's. The only thing that I've tried that claims to save fuel is Lucas Upper Cylinder Lubricant. It's the ONLY ONE that does what it claims and I didn't change my driving habits either. here's another thing that is advertised and can be found at walmart in the Tire section and they run about $125.00 a tire. michelin low resistant tires. Wether they work or not who knows. They might.
