HHO Fuel Kits - Improve Your Fuel Economy With Water

Jun 27, 2008
With gas prices overshooting the "reasonable" line lately, I'm sure you've heard some of the buzz surrounding HHO fuel kits that allow you to burn water as a supplemental fuel in your vehicle. Thousands of people have already discovered the secret to fighting high gas prices and it's as simple as building one of the many simple HHO fuel kits designs available and mounting it underneath the hood of your car.

One of the most frequent questions asked is how the system actually works, and luckily enough it's actually pretty simple. Any standard HHO fuel kit works by sending an electrical charge through a reservoir of water, allowing the current to travel through the water. This is known as electrolysis and the whole process is powered by your vehicles battery/alternator. Most are designed to start the process as soon as the vehicle is turned on so you have extra power and the improved fuel economy right away.

When using HHO fuel kits, most people elect to hook up their system so that anytime the engine is running, it automatically starts producing gas as mentioned above. As an alternative you can add a switch to the system so you may turn it off and on at anytime. Alot of people use a switch setup combined with some type of OBD monitor and can actually watch their fuel economy and emissions readings improve and drop again as the switch the system on and off.

As the electrolysis happens, it creates what is known as HHO gas, which is simply a gas mixture of 2 parts hydrogen, 1 part oxygen. After the gas is extracted from the water it bubbles up to the top of the reservoir and is sucked through a hose running directly to the air intake on your vehicle. The result? A supplemental fuel supply which allows you to burn less gasoline and get more mileage out of each tank. Some other benefits of HHO fuel kits include increased power, and cleaner emissions. You are also able to get a tax credit for the conversion which will more than pay for the parts involved in the conversion. As a matter of fact, some designs only cost around $60 to build, while current US tax credits for such devices can be up to $2,000 per converted vehicle!

Another popular concern is the safety of HHO fuel kits. Rest assured that HHO fuel kits are completely harmless, and while the gas they generate is combustible, it has a very high ignition temperature and only burns well under the compressed environment it experiences inside the combustion chamber of your engine. Generally speaking, it's as safe as the water bottle sitting in your cupholder!

The good news is, you can easily build one of the hydrogen based gas savers using inexpensive, standard parts that can be found at your local hardware store. There are currently not any commercial bolt-on units available so the easiest way to get started is simply to build your own just like thousands of people have already done.
