Icymudpuppy,
What year is your hho f-250? Where did you plumb your hho feed line into your engine? I am about 3 days away from turning on my water4gas set-up on my 99 7.3 turbo. I will have 4 jar cells running at 6 volts each. The only thing that has scared me about this is a flashback explosion, so I have installed a Oxygen regulator flashback flame arrestor with the check valve removed due to low vacumm near the turbo charger. I havent bench tested it yet to see how effective it is to a flashback. Any input is well taken.

Mine is a 2000. 7.3L.

I plumbed the HH and O lines into my air intake manifold just after the Air Filter, and before the turbo.

The engine and turbo is sucking the air really strong. I don't see how any flashback could occur in my engine.

Please keep us updated on this. After reading about your project I've looked into this & am thinking of getting the same unit or making one.
I have an '06 Dodge Ram 2500 with 5.9L Cummins. It's got 24,000 miles, completely stock & running B-10. I'm getting 20.5 mpg average. I drive about 550 miles per week mostly highway miles. I'm trying to get all the info I can before I spend the bucks & put something on a $40,000 truck that's not paid for yet. Your post is very helpful compared to most of the B.S. I've been sifting through on the web. Again, thanks for the reports & keep it up.

Okay, As I've said before, I am a poor engineer. However, my stepdad is a mechanic in the classic sense, and he looked at the design on my system, and the designs shown for a couple other brands online and decided to build his own unit for his 4x4 dodge Ram.

For about $75 in parts, he built a unit that got him from 13mpg to 18mpg, a 38% improvement.

No need to purchase a kit for hundreds if you have good electrical skills, and some creativity.

From my previous posts, you will know I am a skeptic of this stuff. I am confident there may be a marginal benefit, and a hard ceiling on mileage gains; lots of people here would appreciate any pictures or diagrams of your stepdad's system. I'd like to try to duplicate it on another vehicle.

A small container (like a inline fuel filter size)loosely filled with stainless steel (pot scrubber material) should quench any flashback by absorbing the heat.

That works well for fuel vapors but I don't know about Hydrogen

Hey Mudpuppy, ever been to Gig Harbor? Lived there in '78 when I was working in Tacoma on the pumping stations for the North Slope. Cool Place!
Getting the stuff together for my tero gen. Will let you know how it goes.

I was just there (gig harbor) day before yesterday to buy an '82 VW Diesel Jetta w/ an Elsbett system that I found on Craigslist.

Anyway, My stepdad is getting some pics for me.

I'll post them as soon as I get them.

Icymudpuppy, I was just wondering if you are still running HHO, and how it is working for you?

thanks

Sad... I was really hopeful.


Sounds like the Lovecraft of the Hydrogen world.



Leading an eco-friendly livestyle is possible.
