Run Your Car on Hydrogen, Free

* A cannister, under the hood, containing electrodes (about 1.5 mm apart), is (almost) filled with water. The water is separated into hydrogen and oxygen, on demand, when the engine is started, and the hydrogen produced is directed into the engine through the air intake, which may or may not be mixed with gasoline, sprayed in, also. [from fuel injectors] The hydrogen, a gas, explodes, completely, 100%, not just some small percentage like the liquid gasoline being sprayed in with it. If you want to continue with some gasoline, especially at startup, only use fumes. . . . See our page Run your car on vapors.

Gasoline, the liquid, does not explode in your engine, either. Liquid gasoline, or diesel, is sprayed into the engine. Of that, the small amount that vaporizes off the surface, (about 10%) explodes with the force needed to move the pistons and turn the crankshaft. Of that small percentage which vaporizes and produces energy, 65% is wasted as heat. Additional small percentages are lost in the drive train, etc. Most of the gasoline, still a liquid, is now hot enough to vaporize, react chemically (the oxygen has been consumed, even creating carbon monoxide), cool, and go out the tail-pipe as smog: soot, – toxic air pollution – stuff that poisons us and overheats our planet.

Better Hydrogen Generation
“It takes about 15 volts to electrolyze pure water, but pure water is not the ideal fuel to begin with; water with electrolytes dissolved in it is. Baking soda works well in even small amounts.
“If you live near the ocean, the ideal fuel medium is plain sea water, which has the perfect level of salinity for electrolysis, and requires not 15 volts to separate the hydrogen from the oxygen, but only 1/2 of a volt!”
- Charles D.

“Most people do not believe it, but this system can be built easily with items found at home. All you need is some electrical wiring, baking soda, a sealed quart sized container, vacuum hose and an automotive fuse and some other parts. It is also easily removed and its total cost to assemble does not exceed $100. [getting over "80 mpg highway" on his car]
- {from a youtube video}

 

from Dave Lawton
“There is a very simple way to doing this WHOLE water powered system on 0.5 Amp!”

There are many people selling kits and others in business installing them:
google search: “hydrogen generator Installation services”
We don’t know enough to trust any kits:
google search: “hho generator reviews” and “hydrogen generator reviews”
The parts are cheap and these instructions have been found free. We offer these free instructions as it may be safer (certainly cheaper) to simply build your own. Keep it simple.

For most of us, the only “unfamiliar” unit is the “pulse width modulator” which generates the small electrical pulses to make the hydrolysis more efficient, but it is becoming more obvious that it is not necessary. (see videos)
A p.w.m. makes it too complicated, don’t bother, remember try plain tap water first, then use baking soda if that is not enough, … or whatever. One video below shows plenty of hydrogen being produced with only 3 small plates (go for 4: 2 positive and 2 negative) and limited with a 10 amp fuse. Since even small car batteries produce “400 cranking Amps” or more, and the average alternator produces 50 amps or more, “No problem”.

from Stanley Meyer’s project:
“The electrodes are vibrated with a 0.5 to 5 amp electrical pulse (depending on your speed and acceleration) which breaks 2(H2O) => 2H2 + O2. When the pressure reaches say 30-60 psi, you turn the key and go. When you step on the pedal, you send more energy to the electrodes, and thus more vapor to the cylinders; i.e. fuel vapor on demand.”

An extract from the lecture given by Admiral Sir Anthony Griffin to the Maritime Division of the Southampton Institute, Warsash, UK, Sept. of 1993:
“Electrical power with opposite polarities is applied in pulses to the inner and outer cylinders and at a power of 10 watts, i.e. 5 volts at 2 amps. A considerable quantity of gas immediately accumulates in the top of the vessel and, within 10 seconds, reaches a pressure of about 10 pounds per square inch.”

car gasoline fire
Gasoline fires are very dangerous and
difficult to put out. Water is much safer.

Ronn Motors, Dennis Klein, Francisco Pacheco, Stanley Meyer, Daniel Dingel and others have all done it with their designs
see the history of Water Powered Cars

Example: Dennis Klein went 100 miles on 4 oz of water. (25 mi./oz.) We should be able to go at least 1 or 2 mi on an oz. of gasoline, don’t you think! (=128 mpg or =256mpg) We don’t because it has not been converted to a vapor-fumes first. See our page here on vapor.
[by the way, 1 gal. = 128 fluid oz. . . . and . . . Anyone who remembers their basic chemistry knows that 1 gallon of a liquid = about 1,000 gallons of it as a gas - in the gaseous state. :: 1 gal of water = around 1000 gal of hydrogen gas at normal room temp. and pressure.]

 

 

Daniel Dingel has run his car(s) for a number of years totally on water, also
Dennis Klein has run his car on water with and without a gasoline “supplement” — His “water mileage” was about 25 miles per ounce without any gas supplement. (3000+ mpg!) He was working with the military and the state of Tennessee.
“After Dennis was approached by auto manufactures and the US Government, the story changed.” -Charrington, May 29, 2007
“It is all over” Dennis is out of his co.. The oil monopoly has taken it over.

1935 – Inventor Henry Garrett patented a electrolytic carburetor and let a car run on tap water.

The late Henry “Dad” Garrett was a multi-talented Dallas inventor with a bent for electrical contrivances, and in 1935, he and his son, C.H. Garrett, patented and exhibited an automobile that ran on water — actually, on hydrogen after the water was broken down by electrolysis.

Dad Garrett was already famous for his work. In 1920 he set up WRR in Dallas, the world’s first municipal radio station, and was its first announcer. He was the first man to build a radio in his car, and he developed radio transmission from the car for police use. He also invented an automatic electric traffic signal, possibly the nation’s first.

On September 8, 1935, The Dallas Morning News first announced that the water-fuel concept worked — at least it worked for “several minutes,” the article reported. A few months later, Pathe’ News filmed the car driving along Garland Road with the driver stopping at White Rock Lake to fill the fuel tank with water before cruising off.

It is suggested you try this out to begin with on a second vehicle you own, one that you don’t need to live with everyday, until you perfect this technology.

This young man (Vox) mixed a little hydrogen in
with the gas as an experiment on his motorcycle.

On a 45 km trip his motorbike used 2 liters of gas (no HHO). For the return (45 km) trip, he activated his HHO supplement system and then in this video, discovered that his motorcycle had only used a little over half (the 2 liter bottle) of what it consumed before.

In putting these plans into operation, you will be making use of your entire existing system except for the fuel tank and the catalytic converter.

The Plan

Build and install a low-cost alternative method for running your vehicle (internal combustion engine) on tap water, using off-the-shelf components.

This is supposed to be an efficient way to convert ordinary tap water into gaseous hydrogen and oxygen, and then burn these vapors in the engine, instead of gasoline.

This “minisystem” runs easily from your existing battery and electrical system, and it plugs into your air intake (manifold) with simple off-the-shelf fittings.

You will be installing a plastic water bottle, a fuse, a few metal plates.

The simplicity comes from its being an “on-demand” system requiring no hi pressure storage tanks or plumbing. You crank the gas pedal or throttle, and you electrically create more vapor for immediate consumption, on demand; low-high flow rate as needed, from idle to maximum power. The change is that you are using tap water as fuel, – a lot less (if any) of the traditional petroleum-based fuel.
H2O –> H2 + O2

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does it qualify as “free energy”?

A: If you’re paying someone for the water you use, then it is not strictly free. But it’s close enough.

Q: Is it safe?

A: It is safer than running on fossil fuel. You are no longer choking on your own emissions (health-wise). You are also no longer funding global terrorism. You are no longer running the extreme risk of a gasoline fire or explosion! Additionally, you will be installing a few simple safety devices, using current automotive standards.
To put it another way, Hydrogen is just as explosive as Gasoline but you are creating only small amounts of fumes, not tanks full of it like gasoline, and nothing that is left over, does any harm to the environment: When hydrogen ‘burns’ it becomes pure water.
H2 + O2 –> H2O

Q: What kind of performance can I expect?

A: Properly adjusted, your modified vapor-only fuel system will run cooler, and at a modestly higher power level. The mileage performance expected from this design ranges from 50-300 mpg (of water), depending on your adjusting skills and anywhere from 50% to no gasoline.

Q: Can I do the modification myself?

A: Why not? Can you drill 2 holes in a few small, thin, sheets of metal? run 2 wires from your car battery to your bottle with the electrodes in it . . . etc.?

Q: Isn’t this really a steam engine?

A: No. Really. Exceedingly high temperature and pressure are not used. This is strictly an internal-combustion engine (burning hydrogen) with residual water-vapor (remember, the engine runs cooler than it did with gasoline) in the exhaust as a by-product.

Remember This

There are a few things you should remember about gasoline:

Gasoline poisons the atmosphere and, it is very toxic and dangerous!

Gasoline versus Water

Most people are unaware that “internal combustion” is defined as “a thermo-vapor process” – as in “no liquid in the reaction.” Most of the gasoline in a standard internal combustion engine is actually consumed, (cooked, and finally, broken down) in the catalytic converter after the fuel has been not-so-burnt in the engine. Sadly, this means that most of the fuel we use in this way is used only to cool down the combustion process, a pollution-ridden and inefficient means of doing that. Lots of very explosive and flammable gasoline vs. a very small amount of hydrogen vapor.

How It Works

Water is added as needed to replenish and maintain the liquid level in the chamber. Electrolysis breaks 2(H2O) => 2H2 + O2. When the pressure reaches say 3-5 psi (with a 1.5 inch diam. hose), you turn the key and go. You step on the pedal, you send more energy to the electrodes, and thus more vapor to the cylinders; i.e. fuel vapor on demand.

You set the idle max-flow rate to get the most efficient use of power, and you’re off to the races.

In the big picture, your energy is coming from the tap water in an open system, as the latent energy in the water is enough to power the engine and hence drive the alternator and whatever belt-driven accessories. And the alternator is efficient enough to run the various electrical loads (10 – 20 amps), including the additional low current to run this vapor reaction. No extra batteries are required.

This guy is mixing a little hydrogen in with the gas

 

I personally built one of those hydrogen generators and installed it on my 1986 Buik SkyHawk. The car would only achieve 20 MPG before I installed the unit. After running the generator for only a week, and checking the fuel economy it now was 58 MPG. After running the unit for 1 year I was able to attain an average of 60 MPG with a top of 75.62 MPG. The Spark plugs were not changed and when removed were as clean as the day they were installed 3 years before.

One side effect was the increase in power that the engine had. A hill that I would have to drive up every time I went to the city would always slow the car down before, but after the hydrogen generator was installed the car would even accelerate going up the same hill. The reason for this could have been the hydrogen or a cleaner engine or a combination of both. Why I experencied this who knows and I really do not care about the techenical reason the only thing I know is that it worked.

I am not an engineer and have no idea why this worked and honestly do not care, I just know that there was a big increase in my cars fuel economy.

Winter up north in Canada also started as a bit of a problem with -40 degree weather but this was easily fixed by changing the electrolyte solution.

electrical pulses, not brute force electrolysis

Where normal water electrolysis requires the passage of current measured in amps (10 or 20 where your battery produces over 400 and your alternator provides 50 amps or more – so miliamps is nice but it may not be worth the hassle), this cell achieves the same effect in milliamps. Furthermore, ordinary tap water [may] requires the addition of an electrolyte such as sulphuric acid Baking Soda to aid current conduction with the standard electrolysis approach; these cells function at greatest efficiency with plain tap water.

According to the witnesses, the most startling aspect of the Meyer cell was that it remained cold, even after hours of gas production.

Meyer’s experiments, which he seems to be able to perform to order, have earned him a series of US patents granted under Section 101. The granting of a patent under this section is dependent on a successful demonstration of the invention to a Patent Review Board.

Meyer’s cell seems to have many of the attributes of an electrolytic cell except that it functions at high voltage, low current rather than the other way around. Construction is unremarkable. The electrodes — referred to as “excitors” by Meyer — are made from parallel HHO Generator plates of stainless steel placed in either flat or concentric arrangements. (see the washers, on the right, for one method) Gas production seems to vary as the inverse of the distance between them; the patents suggest a spacing of 1.5 mm produces satisfactory results.

A witness team of independent UK scientifc observers testified that US inventor Stanley Meyer successfully decomposed ordinary tap water into constituent elements through a combination of high, pulsed voltage using an average current measured only in milliamps. Reported gas evolution was enough to sustain a hydrogen / oxygen flame which instantly melted steel. (How Denny Klein got started – see video)

“We did notice that the water at the top of the cell slowly became discolored with a pale cream and dark brown precipitate, almost certainly the effects of the chlorine in the heavily chlorinated tap water…” … “We clearly saw how increasing and decreasing the voltage is used to control gas production. We saw how gas generation ceased and then began again instantly as the voltage driving circuit was switched off and then on again.”

The use of a high voltage spike alone (1500 volts+), without the current being delivered through the liquid, will not cause the disassociation to take place. Once Stan’s unit was made to begin breakdown (which takes 6 to 8 seconds) he was able to reduce both current and voltage to miniscule proportions.

There are two primary frequencies that produce the best results. They are: 14,372 Hz and 43,430 Hz. The former is about 50% more efficient, but it seems that just about any frequency between 9 KHz and 143,762 KHz works quite well. This is because the nature of the wave form ( a spike ) is rich in harmonics and one of them is bound to be close to one of the two primary frequencies.

Meyer was apparently eating dinner at a Grove City, OHIO restaurant, when it is reported that he jumped up from the table, yelled that he’d been poisoned”, and rushed out into the parking lot, where he collapsed and died. Thieves came a week later and stole the the dune buggy and all of his experimental equipment, according to his twin brother, Stephen. Stan said while he was alive, that he was threatened many times and would not sell out to Arab Oil Corp’s. The Military was going to use this technology in their tanks, jeeps, etc. He had patents on his invention and was ready for production. See the Videos above. No gasoline, just water. Stanley said he was offered a billion dollars from an Arab to basically shelf his idea. Stan said, “No”.

STEP BY STEP CONSTRUCTION

OVERVIEW – Here is the suggested sequence of steps:

1. Build 2 or 3 electrodes and test their output in your bottle of water.

2. Temporarily insert the hydrogen and oxygen output tube into your engines air intake hose to verify the output with the different electrodes. Choose the smallest one that works.

3. Install-connect the bottle(s), limiter, and valves-fittings.

4. Run engine and adjust the accelerator-battery circuit as necessary for best performance.

6. Dump the now pointless catalytic converter and, if your exaust pipe is
not stainless steel already, later, replace it with stainless steel pipe sections.

PARTS LIST

plastic water bottle(s) with electrode and fittings.

battery-limiter, wiring, connectors, and epoxy.

1.5 inch flex-tubing, fittings and clamps.

pvc valves and fittings.

BASIC TOOLS

drill, screwdriver and pliers

wire-wrap, solder-iron and clippers

 

 

REACTION CHAMBER

Select bottles as shown in the diagrams. Make sure to drill-and-epoxy or tap threads thru the PVC components for all fittings. Set and control the water level in the chamber so that it well submerses the electrodes; yet leave some headroom to build up the hydrogen/oxygen vapor pressure. Use stainless steel wires inside the bottle or otherwise use a protective coating; use insulated wires outside. Ensure that the epoxy perfects the seal, or otherwise lay down a bead of water-proof silicone that can hold pressure.

The screw fitting may require soft silicone sealant, or a gasket; its purpose is to hold pressure and allow periodic inspection of the electrodes. No leaks, no problems. Make sure you get a symmetric 1-5 mm gap between the stainless steel plates. The referenced literature suggests that the closer to 1 or 2 mm you get, the better. You will want to test your system before you epoxy the cap on.

Make your solder connections at the wire/electrode junctions nice, smooth, and solid; then apply a water-proof coating, e.g. the epoxy you use for joining the pipes to the screw cap. This epoxy must be waterproof and be capable of holding metal to plastic under pressure. You will want to test your float valve before you epoxy the cap on.

Throttle Control

We should be able to connect the accelerator cable to a rheostat (variable resistor) to the gas linkage (i.e. coupled to something at the throttle cable running to the carb or FI. If you make the attachment at the carb/FI, be sure to use a rheostat that can handle the engine temp cycles. Don’t go cheezy-cheapy, get one rated for long life and mechanical wear; mount it securely to something sturdy and stationary that will not fall apart when you step on the gas.

Control Range. The full throttle RANGE (idle-max) MUST control the vapor rate (duty). The resistor values at the throttle signal must allow the throttle signal voltage, say 1-4 Volt swing, to drive the VAPOR RATE. You will be using this voltage range to control speed and acceleration.

In this circuit, you will simply adjust to whatever voltage makes the most efficient vapor conversion.

You crank up the throttle and put more electrical energy into the electrodes; verify you can get everything you wanted.

potentiometers (POTs) have been mentioned: “Potentiometers and rheostats are made the same way, but rheostats are usually much sturdier, as they are generally used in high-power situations.”

ENGINE/EXHAUST TREATMENT

You could make max use of your current exhaust system by using it with your new deal until it rusts through, then have your mechanic or welder friend to fit a stainless steel exhaust pipe (no catalytic converter is required). But it could be easier and cheaper to send your existing exhaust system out for the ceramic treatment, and then simply re-attach it to the exhaust ports.

 

GENERAL

1. Do not discard or remove any of the old gasoline setup components, e.g. tank, fuel injectors, catalytic converter, unless necessary. Better to always leave an easy way to revert back to something that at least runs, just in case. Some people are leaving their gasoline setup completely intact, and switching back and forth at will, just to have a backup plan.

2. Set your throttle circuit so that you get minimum vapor flow at idle, and maximum vapor flow at full power without blowing the pressure relief valve. In this way, you control how ‘lean’ your mixture is by the strength of the voltage-amperage.

3. If you just don’t get enough power (at any throttle setting), it means that you need to (1) change the gap between the electrodes, (3) change the size (bigger) electrodes, or (4) use a higher amp fuse (last resort). Always use an output transistor, such as a MOSFET, that is rated for the voltage and current you need to get the job done. OK so you might have to play around with it some. Isn’t that where all the Fun is anyhow?

4. Build the canister(s) as tall as you can without compromising your ability to mount them conveniently in the engine compartment. This way, you can always make the electrodes bigger, if necessary without undue hardship (even do without the bubbler). Remember that anything in the engine compartment should be mounted in a bullet-proof, vibration and temperature tolerant fashion.

5. If you have to drill a thru-hole for wiring or plumbing thru metal, make sure to also install a grommet for protection against chafing. Always watch your chamber pressure range from IDLE (15-25 psi) – FULL POWER (30-60 psi). Set your safety-pressure relief-valve to 75 psi and make sure it’s rated higher.

6. Shut OFF the power switch and pull over if there is any malfunction of the system. Your engine will last longest when it still develops FULL POWER + at some minimum temperature that we are sure you can find, by leaning back the Vapor Flow and/or by making use of the water-vapor cooling technique. Keep good mpg performance records, and periodic maintenance/inspection. Keep it clean; save some money; clean the air; heal the planet; happy motoring; tell a friend; enjoy your freedom and self-empowerment.

7. If you install the water-vapor system (for lower operating temp/stress), you will want to lean the mixture (vapor/air) for minimum vapor flow rate to achieve any given throttle position (idle – max). Make sure that you get a minimum flow for IDLE and a good sufficient flow for MAX.

8. If you are concerned about the water freezing in your system, you can (a) add some 98% isopropyl alcohol and re-adjust the rheostat accordingly; or (b) install some electric heating coils.

HHOi under pressure into fuel rail may be the key to running vehicles on water and air

The onboard electrolysis unit, powered by the vehicle’s battery/alternator, produces an ionized hydroxy gas [HHOi] (the hydrogen and oxygen are not separated) that is injected under pressure (30 – 60 psi) into the fuel rail, and is able to keep the engine running.

The longest Rick has kept his Jeep going like this so far has been around 2.5 hours before it died. During that time, Rick was able to rev the engine via the accelerator pedal up and down, including to 3,000 rpms. It didn’t ever backfire. Somehow the car’s computer is able to compensate for the different fuel, and increase and decrease the speed the engine runs in response to the changing pedal position, just as it would if gasoline were running the vehicle. Perhaps the variation in airflow with the varying throttle positions with the pedal changes is what regulates the engine speed in this case. Also, the Jeep computer’s knock sensor automatically adjusts the timing of the engine to handle the HHOi gas. Rick was amazed to watch his gauge show the timing change on his Jeep.

The odd thing is that the rate of hydroxy gas production was constant, and was not governed to correspond to the increase or decrease in engine load. Nor is the rate of water consumption at a rate that present physics would predict would be needed for the water to be serving as fuel. Nor is the rate of electrical consumption in producing the hydroxy gas proportional to the amount of power manifest in idling the vehicle for that long. One of the pioneer researchers in the field, George Wiseman, points out that to be practical, the Brown’s gas (HHO or hydroxy) production will need to be nominally in proportion to the load requirement.

These attributes are similar to what Freddy reported, except he allegedly was running his friend’s pickup truck under load – driving down the road, speeding up and slowing down. Rick hopes to get to that point some time this week, with the help of an associate who is flying in to help out. If they get it running well, Rick would like to drive down to where I live and show it off to me.

… the hydroxy gas that both Freddy and Rick are allegedly producing is being called “HHOi”, the “i” symbolizing “ionized.” This is a term that James Sharp coined, and which Freddy has picked up

Ionized Air as Fuel Contributor

On Saturday morning, Rick called me up to report that he tried running just straight air with an air compressor into the fuel rail on his Jeep, and that it actually idled for 2-3 minutes that way. He was wondering if whatever leftover fuel that is in the system might be enough to enable it to run that long.

Because of some other situations I know of, I postulated that it may be that the pressurized air itself could be contributing to the fuel component — with petrol in this case, and with HHOi in the above set-up.

I know of another researcher who claims that several years ago he was able to get his car to run on air alone after getting above 15 mph — that the pressure of the incoming air was enough, and there was enough energy in the air from solar power ionizing molecules in the air, and his engine had enough of a combustion efficiency to actually utilize the air as fuel under that low pressure and flow. He temporarily abandoned this effect to first pursue something not so disruptive and difficult for people to believe.

This week I got a phone call from another researcher, this one saying that he got his Papp engine running, and that the fuel source is . . . air. He doesn’t want coverage yet, but we are in process of checking out his claim, as he invited us to come see it. The reason I feel compelled to mention it here is that the Papp engine process may be similar to the effect we’re discussing here.

He has never tried any mixture of gas and water – he does not think it is possible. His car consumes about 1 quart (liter) per hour, he says. Conservatively 1 gal. should take you 120 to 240 miles? (30 to 60 mph) That makes water a lot better than gasoline on volume alone, not to mention price!

He is said to have converted 100 cars to run on water.

Vaporization:
“During our interview the eager young inventor revealed how he had discovered his fuel system by accident; “I was messing around with a lawn-mower when I accidentally knocked a hole in its fuel tank. I put a vacuum line running from the tank straight into the carburetor inlet (he removed the carburetor). I just let it run and it kept running and running but the fuel level stayed the same. I got excited. The lawn-mower was running without a carburetor and getting tremendous efficiency.”

Keep in mind that using water for fuel is only to “buy time” till
high-density batteries as good as or better than lithium-ion can provide 300 mi/charge or better. (already available in Tesla Motors “S” model) (as good as or better than gasoline powered vehicles) When we can tap the unlimited electricity in radiant energy all around us, then little or no fossil fuels will be needed for transportation or power generation of any kind.

Electric vs. Internal Combustion

The internal combustion engine is a device that inherently tries to destroy itself: numerous explosions drive its pistons up and down to turn a shaft. A shaft rotating at 6,000 revolutions/minute produces 100 explosions every second. These explosions in turn require a massive vessel to contain them-typically a cast-iron cylinder block.

Additional systems are necessary:
1 A cooling system to keep the temperatures within a safe operating range.
2 An exhaust system to remove the heated exhaust products safely.
3 An ignition system to initiate the combustion at the right moment.
4 A fueling system to introduce the proper mixture of air and gas for combustion.
5 A lubricating system to reduce wear on high-temperature, rapidly moving parts.
6 A starting system to get the whole cycle going.
It’s complicated to keep all these systems working together. This complexity means more things can go wrong (more frequent repairs and higher repair costs).

Unfortunately, the internal combustion engine vehicle’s legacy of destruction doesn’t just stop with itself. The internal combustion engine is a variant of the generic combustion process. To light a match, you use oxygen (O2) from the air to burn a carbon based fuel (wood or cardboard matchstick), generate carbon dioxide (CO2), emit toxic waste gases (you can see the smoke and perhaps smell the sulfur), and leave a solid waste (burnt matchstick). The volume of air around you is far greater than that consumed by the match; air currents soon dissipate the smoke and smell, and you toss the matchstick.

Today’s internal combustion engine is more evolved than ever. However, we still have a carbon-based combustion process that creates heat and pollution. Everything about the internal combustion engine is toxic, and is still one of the least-efficient mechanical devices on the planet. Unlike lighting a single match, the use of hundreds of millions (soon to be billions) of internal combustion engine vehicles threatens to destroy all life on our earth.

While an internal combustion engine has hundreds of moving parts, an electric motor only has ONE.

That’s one of the main reasons why electric cars are so efficient!

“Maintaining an electric car, according to some estimates, will cost about one-third the current cost of maintaining a gasoline-powered car. The bottom line is this: Electric cars require considerably less maintenance than gas-driven cars.”

164 Responses to A Hydrogen Generator You Can Build

  1. Harold on July 28, 2014 at 10:16 am

    I just found this site and am very excited to learn more about this! I know I can build one of these but I need to power a 35kw generator that runs on a 300 Ford 6cyl engine. How big would I need to build to operate this unit? It normally burns about two gallons of gas an hour under load.

    the 1st video should show enough for size. Go for it!

    How much hho do you need to produce to run little to no gasoline?

    I’m in the process of doing an ionised static electricity atmospheric experiment from 1000 ft upwards, via balloons based on an old US 1925 patent from Plauson. The balloon(s) would need to take a few cubic metres of hydrogen gas, do you know how much this gas the electrolyser can make in hour thanks?

    Enough to power a vehicle, and end our dependency on oil that funds global terrorism.

    Hi there. I want to make my truck run on 100% water. The instructions above says there is a diagram for building a control curcuit. I dont see it.

  5. Faithful on June 10, 2014 at 6:45 am

    Am interested in this kit, how can i get in my country (+234) 8130445233, Thank you


    Next time you are about to throw away a bottle, don’t. You may also want to go to a local hardware store for a few more things.

  6. James on May 27, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    what about in cold temperatures? how will u keep the water from freezing?
    James Richardson


    that has been mentioned (above – under “general”)

    This is really awesome! I was on this discussion forum about 2 years ago. I was really naive then. This site has really grown quite a bit in that time. Now there are actual plans for building a hydrogen engine that I can work with. Before I spend $150 on an old lawnmower, does anyone not recommend using lawnmowers for testing? Also, it appears that this design is also really good for de-salinization. You pour dirty water in, and pure water comes out of the exhaust. Maybe terminals might not have as long of a life span?
    Matthew Barnard


    Good to have you back.
    A lawnmower, generator, or a motorcycle is good – anything with a gas engine on it. Also try running one on vapor.

    Hi. Just to let you know. I’ve been experimenting with the Hydrogen generators for about 4 years with great success. The system I’m building is the dry cell. I’ve brought my car’s consumption down from 20 km. per liter to +- 30 km. per liter. I can assure you. It’s working and safes a lot of money. I want to push it to 40 km. per liter.

    Strange thing about all that is shown above, is, why dont you make it yourself, i mean the arrangement which will make cars, and lots of other things, run on water. it is a fantastic scenario. This damn oil is killing us all, either way. You buy, you get choked, you use it, get choked. let us some how get this oil thing finished, before it finishes us…….!
    - zahoor khan


    You are not serious. So many people have done it. One more won’t change anything. Yes, we need to “stick it” to the oil co’s! Also, this is not the only option. there is fuel vaporization, electro-magnetic motor/generators. and more.

    earth self rotating clockwise or anticlockwise? i’m nteresting in research one very small hydrogen cell to generate energy using airplane?


    you can imagine from space watching the Earth turn so that the sun sets in the West

    Awesome info but hard to read with the back ground and text Color. White text would be great.


    Sorry, but only the videos from YouTube have black backgrounds and we have no control over them.
    We put up the beach scenes, both the one on the sides and the one in the center. We have noticed that the center scene does not show up on some smart phones, or iphones. Are you visiting from a smart phone (?) and seeing only the one beach scene wall-to-wall? To define a light color with the center image may work-around the problem – or we may simply switch to it.
    We apologize. We have replaced it with a wood-grain background over a color

    Hi I’m interested in making my car run on water but i can’t seem to find a reliable source do you have any? – S. Kaan Kizil


    none that we trust. Safer to follow the information here and build your own.

    If this is available!
    I am 74 years old & was looking for someone with the experience and knowledge that I probably don’t have, for a professional installation.

    good job bro continue this advocacy, i am 100 percent full support. im one of the green advocate in this era…you will help a lot of people . . . post more informative stuff . . .i will continue following . . .

    This page is a great read. Very easy to read in one sitting. I’ve been researching alternative fuels in trying to alleviate the worlds dependency upon big oil from the vantage point of a home workbench. I do not work in the energy sector but it’s more than a hobby. Hydrogen power has intrigued me for some time. Really, ever since I studied it in relation to emergency response to new hydrogen automobiles on the highways. I am a fireman. I appreciate the depth you went to in your description and explanations. Very well done, Sir. I’m now planning to build one myself. I’ll brief you as to my progress soon.

  19. Mike on March 4, 2014 at 11:53 am

    Okay, so what about engine/transmission oil? And does the system run until the tank is empty or will it shut off during drive time?

  20. A.G on January 26, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    Hi, would it be possible to put one on my jet ski?? I have a 2003 jet ski that runs on fuel but automatically mixes with oil that lubricates and cools the engine parts. . Thank you.


    yes, and a jet ski sounds like a good idea for a place to start; you don have to drive it to work every day.
