Whats with all the (dons flame suit) tech that I think I have seen working where the hydrogen generator is on the vehicle.
I dont understand the science of it
but it looked like some sort electrolyse where hydrogen was produced and that gas was burnt in the engine.
It looked like a good idea but I wasn't there and didn't see it with my own eyes :lol:


:popcorn: :popcorn:

Guy I knew was selling kits, using the 'excess' energy from the alternator to power the electrolysis, create hydrogen and inject it into the fuel system, claimed 30% improvement in fuel economy, sounded too good to be true so I avoided it, this was 10 years ago,

What would be ideal would be an engine that could use the excess energy from running to hydrolyse water generating hydrogen which powers that same engine and drives the car. The waste product would be water which can be reclaimed for the hydrolysis.

Unfortunately I think this is against the laws of physics. :D
That was my take on it, hence I declined his offer
