HHO Generator Project - Introduction

As you may have heard by now, you can easily build a device that essentially turns water into powerful, clean burning fuel. Installing this HHO generator on your vehicle can provide you with several benefits...
  • Increased horsepower and torque
  • Smoother engine operation
  • Government refunds for alternative fuel conversion! (up to $2,000 for cars/trucks!)
  • and above all - improved fuel economy!
Many people on the web are selling instructions, e-books, and/or kits, and they claim anywhere from 30-100% increase in mileage and up to 20 horsepower. Well, I'm not selling anything, and will not make promises. All I can say is - if it works, even a little - I'm still saving money at the pump in the long run! Plus, I get to "stick it to the man" a little, and that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

How it works, and what it's all about

I'm no rocket scientist, so bear with me on the lack of technical knowledge...
In a nutshell, a HHO Generator is a device that uses electrolysis to convert water into two parts Hydrogen and one part Oxygen (HHO). This gas, also known as Brown's Gas, is a very clean burning, powerful fuel.

Efficient HHO Generators are capable of using Distilled Water only, but most HHO Gens I've seen use an electrolyte, or catalyst in addition to the distilled water. The most popular, not to mention safest, is regular old baking soda. That's right folks. Distilled water + Baking soda + Electricity = cheap, clean fuel.

With gas and diesel prices as high as they are now, installing a HHO generator on your car, truck, boat or even tractor-trailer is almost a no-brainer! And so, that's exactly what I intend to chronicle here.

sample HHO generator kit

The HHO generator can be assembled in a matter of hours using simple, easy to find items and with minimal mechanical knowledge. Installation on your vehicle is a snap, too!

Also, this is an "On-Demand" system that only produces the HHO when your car is running, and the unit is ON. My instructions will include how to install a toggle switch so you can shut the system down from inside the vehicle.
