Hoo boy! Didn't have time to watch much but their own description said it all: "Hydrogen FX is a professionally built 316 stainless steal hydrogen electrolyzer..."

If anyone wants to try the thing out, you can build it yourself for under 50 bucks in parts. I prefer to use that to put another 1/4 of a tank of diesel fuel in my truck. I've heard a few schools of thought on it and may even build one to do some testing on one of my beater cars for fun, but I'm skeptical as to what will happen.

Water/meth injection is a completely different animal from the hydrogen generator gizmos. I run a Devil's Own water/meth setup on my turbocharged VW GTI to allow for much more advanced timing on pump gas and reduced intake temperatures. Works great and allows the engine to pump out another 15-20 horsepower past what I can run without it. I can use the same engine tune as I would normally use for 100 octane race gas on 93 octane premium pump gas. I doesn't do a thing for mileage since it only kicks on after the turbo is putting out more than 12psi of boost. Under normal driving conditions, the car rarely sees more than about 5psi. Funny part is the fact that the cheapest Wal-Mart brand washer fluid happens to be nearly the perfect ratio of water/meth. Who would have thought squirting washer fluid into your intake would help increase horsepower?

The reporter didn't give any details, and I haven't researched the system, but a recent radio report announced that Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) had come up with a cost effective way to increase the fuel economy of trucks by 25%. The folks at Georgia Tech said it would be up to the manufacturers to implement it or not.

I drive a diesel, but my wife drives an Expedition with the 5.4L gasser. It would be great to increase her 14-15 MPG's around town to 17-19 in town. Hwy would go from 22 MPG's to 27-28. That would be sweet. It would help ensure that we would have tow vehicles in the future when time to replace the ones we have and not be limited to cross-overs as tow vehicles.

hybrid tecnology

Here in South FL, WPTV channel 5 from West Palm Beach did a story on a company that produces this type of equipment. They installed them in one of their SUV news trucks. The article claimed a 60% increase in milage. So I called the company that made them and asked what I could expect from one of their units with a 454. They said realisticall about 20% increase. After talking to my machanic about possibly installing this thing, he said, The big problem is you take a big chanch of burning your engine heads because hydrogen burn extermely hot and if not properly regulated ...... guess what. Long story short, 20% did not interest me with the gamble and a $1,500. price tag!
Mabe someone else has a better mouse trap?
