Greetings! Just for fun, I built a hydrogen assist fuel cell from a kit I purchased for $40. I read about doing this at a website called water4gas.com Please take a look yourself. Anyway, I conducted a 130 mile test in my Hyundai Accent. Prior to installing the hydrogen assist fuel cell, I got 33 MPG highway. After installation and doing a highway only test I got 43 MPG.
As I understand the technology, the hydrogen and oxygen gained from electrolysis aid the combustion of your gasoline and result in burning more of it than thte standard 87% that our engines usually burn. So, as I see it, there was no magic. I did not create energy or break any thermodynamic laws. I just put more of the gas I bought into combustion and less got passed through to my catalytic converter to be burned there prior to exhaust. So, the gas pump and odometer seem to indicate that I used more of my gas for combustion, along with a little hydrogen and oxygen from the electrolysis and I got better gas mileage. Less waste = more available energy. Makes sense to me.
Welcome first time poster. We are so pleased that you bring no hybrid content to GreenHybrid.com. Like eskimos, we look forward to reading about your refrigerator. You know that folks over in the Hyundai, GM, Ford and Chrysler forums are probably desperate for your wonderful story. Don't forget the folks over at "an authoritative source on fuel economy and hypermiling" who no doubt would love to hear from you.

How many miles before putting in the gas generator?
How many miles with the gas generator?
Are you recording all your miles in our database?
What happens when you turn it off for a tank?
Can someone who isn't you enable and disable it for a 'blind' study?
Have you sent Hyundai a letter about your success?
Do you think Hyundai is conspiring to keep it a secret?
Do you think the EPA is in on the conspiracy?
For me, $40, is one tank of $4/gallon gas. With gas closer to $2.50/gallon, it is now almost two tanks of gas. I personally have no interest in your gas generator at any price.

Would governments then figure out a way to charge more for water?? They will get their money somehow. I hope this technology is true. It sure would eventually eliminate our reliance on the oil from the middle east a couple decades from now perhaps.
I've heard a lot of things about it, that car runs on water but there might be a lot of consideration pertaining to that. I don't know exactly how it works but the idea is great and can be off good benefit if this 1 would grow.
