Sadly, there are people who do believe in this. I was on another forum and someone kept saying it was real and I'm pretty sure they were not joking. Many people don't even have a basic knowledge or experience of cars, physics, or even how to research things before you buy. To some, a car is a magic carriage that they just put gas in and then take to a mechanic when the gerbils aren't working.Did anyone think this was real? If they did they deserve to get scammed.
I just read through the forum guidelines (again) and didn't see any explicit ban on HHO as a topic. However, there is a ban on spam and HHO topics frequently head in that direction.Why is HHO a banned subject?
If it was banned, the thread would have been removed years ago.You can't create energy, but you can transfer what we have sitting in front of us every day to achieve maximum potential... Why is HHO a banned subject? Did myturbodiesel.com sign an NDA or something?
You're in college and you have to think about this?The reason why I have revived a topic 6 years ago is bc I have recently finished a hydrogen research paper for one of my college classes & I stumbled upon the use of hydrogen generators for internal combustion engines. This information is new to me & interests me. I would have figured this forum would help, thats all...
Keep in mind Jake (or is it John?) that the obligation of proof is on you since you're the one offering the theory. Way back in 2008, Popular Mechanics did an article on the topic here: http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/a3499/4276846/So do we have proof of the discrediting?!
Is Diesel a fast-burning fuel? Diesels run very lean.The HHO process kicks off with an alternator running at 70-80% efficiency. There are losses further down the line too. Then you feed it into an engine that is better at making heat than torque. Granted, hydrogen is a fast burning fuel and can run lean. But really?
As far as I know, it is not. I suppose at the chemistry level it has to do with the long carbon chain.Is Diesel a fast-burning fuel? Diesels run very lean.
You can make anything you want if you start with a false assumption.As far as I know, it is not. I suppose at the chemistry level it has to do with the long carbon chain.
I did a bunch of reading on this topic when gas first hit $4 a gallon. It was intriguing. I believe the reason people were seeing better economy numbers was due to the manipulation of the oxygen sensor(s). They fooled the ECM into running leaner than it was designed to for emissions. Leaning out the mixture makes the evil NOx. I can't imagine that catalytic converters would last long in those conditions either. Don't they need unburnt fuel to heat up properly?
