The most frequently asked questions are:
1.What is hho gas?
It is the gas produced when water is broken down by electrolysis into a mixture of two parts :two parts hydrogen gas and one part oxygen gas.
2.What is a hho fuel cell?
A Fuel Cell is a simple, compact, electrolyzer which produces the hho gas. They a neutral and positive stainless steel plates inside the fuel cell. The neutral plates produce the hydrogen gas and the positive plates produce the oxygen gas.
3.What is a dry fuel cell ? What is wet cell ? Witch one is better?
A "dry fuel cell" is a cell with a separate water tank.
A wet fuel cell is a water tank with plates inside,and there is no separate tank or reservoir.
The latest on better fuel cell on the global market today is the dy cell.
4.What is an electrolyte?
An electrolyte is a mixture of deionised water with Potassium Hydroxide KOH.
The more KOH you add to the water, the electrolyte will be stronger.
5.What is the best electrolytes?
The best electrolyte Is a Potassium Hydroxide (KOH).Do not use baking soda or something. Else these can damage your fuel cell and the warranty want be valid otherwise.
The solutions of KOH / Water for ours fuel cells will be mentioned on the Installations instructions. .
6.Can the HHO Kit improve my vehicle performance?
Yes,by adding the HHO into your internal combustion engine will enrich the burning process,the fuel will burn a lot faster than beffore.This will makes your vehicle to run much smoother.
This will increase the torque,horsepower and reduce the hydrocarbon pollutants currently being released into the air through your exhaust.
7.Does the hho kit work with Diesel, Petrol, LPG or CNG vehicles?
Yes, it works with all vehicles with internal combustion engines.
8.What fuel savings can I get when using HHO fuel saving kit?
You can increase your vehicle mileage by up to 40%. On some vehicles you can have a fuel savings straight away, just with the hho kit and Dynamic PWM, (we highly recommend to try this easy and cheap option first) on some others you will need to reduce the original fuel using Map/Maf Sensor Enhancer and fit the lambda sensor extender,or to fit the fuel saver chip programmed for hho and you specific vehicle. Or the last and most efficient step can be to remapp the ECU for the hho needs (instead to use Map /Maf Sensor Enhancer ,lambda sensor extender or HHO chip)
9.Do I need to use a pulse Width Modulator ( PWM ) and witch one to choose?
Ours dry cells are optimised to work perfectly even without any PWM's,But we highly recommend to use Dynamic PWM Positive side are ........( Link )
10.Can I install the HHO kit on common rail (Common Rail) engine?
Yes, can be mounted generator common rail engine - put extra chip that connects to the car behind the OBDII port, and to check whether you have software for your car.
The hho kit can install HHO generators without putting a chip, but the fuel saving is not very large.
11.Does the hho kit cause any short or long term harm to my engine?
No,noting at all. The hho gas does not cause any problems to the engines. There is only positive things.
12.What could be happen if I don?t use Distilled water for my hho kit?
Distilled water is the purest and clean water.The tap water or mineral water, pond water, sea water, etc., will work but they will also quickly cause the electrolyte to become ?muddy? due to the minerals and impurities in the water. The muddy electrolyte will build up on the generator plates and act as an insulator causing Hydrogen gas production to suffer. Sodium will quickly contaminate the electrolyzer plates and cause the unit to become ineffective.
13.What happens if I run out of water?
If the water runs out there is no harm to the engine. In this case you want have any hho productions.
The only thing that happens is that the fuel economy and the horsepower revert back to what it was before the installation of this system
14.In case of an accident will the Hydrogen Generator blow up?
There is no risk of explosion because HHO gas rumble when you have a serious spark or a temperature over 570 degrees Celsius. In practice this is impossible when all elements are protected from the hot parts and elements of the car and no spark also.
The entire system is also airtight and misses Brown gas. In case of mechanical shock caused by accident or for other reasons, all the electronics in the car is stopped automatically, which means that the HHO generator stops working and if the generator it self is mechanically damaged due to shock caused by accident, it just the Brown's gas generator stops producing gas, because water will leak.
15. Are there any other benefits to using this system?
Other benefits to your engine are that it keeps the engine oil cleaner longer because of the lack of deposits and you can extend the service interval. It keeps carbon from building up in the combustion chamber and around the valves.
This system also keeps:
- engine temperatures down by about 10 degrees C
- keeps the O2 sensor clean - keeps the injector stems clean
- drastically reduces emissions and excessive burning of oil
- fuel efficiency is greatly increased
- drastically reduces unburned fuels and harmful deposits,therefore extending engine life
-In fact,the emissions are reduced to the point that the exhaust smells like the by-product of an ozone machine Both the EGR valve and the catalytic converter will be clean. Also extends the life of the spark plugs It stops engine pinging, also known as predetonation
16.How can I measure gas output?
Actually you don't need to do it.Our hho cells produce enough amount of gas for your engine size. The more hho productions doesn't meen more fuel savings.
17.What water consumption can I expect on the fuel cell?
On every 300-450 miles (500-700 km) you will need to be toped up the tank of the system around 300ml. Distilled water.
Every 12 000- 18 000 miles (20,000 to 30,000 km) or depending on the amount of use it is recommended to flush the system and be filled with fresh distilled water and electrolyte.
18.Can I use any kind of water?
It is highly recommended that you use distilled or de-ionised only Distilled water is pure water. With other types of water such as tap water, mineral water, lake water, seawater, etc., the generator will work, but it will also lead to easy deposition of minerals and impurities that are in the water and electrolyte will become boiling "mud." This mud will be deposits on the plates and the generator will act as an insulator causing lower production of HHO gas.
19.Will the water in the unit freeze in winter?
No,that is not possible. The one of the better sides of the Dynamic PWM is using it you can make the electrolyte more stronger. For the winter we use a concentrated electrolyte, so up to -20 degrees NO PROBLEM.
20.Is there any kind of warranty that comes with my Hydrogen Cell?
Yes, a 2 years FULL WARRANTY for parts and unit repair or replacement. Our hho kits are build from a high quality materials. So you don't have expect any problem during the first 4-5 years.
21. What is the lifetime of hydrogen cell?
The materials of which are made non-corrosive, and basic elements such as fins can be recycled by us after wear, but it will be soon after 4-5 years of work. By using our Dynamic PWM you will extend the life on the fuel cell,because the call it will not work constantly on high amperage.
22.Why do not car manufacturers have introduced this technology in production?
Car manufacturers are not interested to bild the Hydrogen generators in their cars because it will make them much cheaper and make meaningless injection systems, common rail, and other innovations. New developments in the automotive industry make cars more expensive and hence the profits of their manufacturers are larger. Impossible is such a great industry to lightly throw all his works, which won many to return to normal carburettor engines and introduce hydrogen generator. Gas Generator Brown renders all new fuel systems of cars produced over the years to realize fuel economy. A second factor is the price of fuel - while fuel prices are still low will have little financial incentive for this system. Designed from the outset to work with this technology, vehicles can run on 100% water. Neither the oil not the governments want to see a billion dollar industry destroyed. Oil companies report the largest profits of any other industry elsewhere. States collect huge amounts of duties and taxes.
23.I Installed my HHO Kit and I Get a Check Engine Light. What Do I Do?
If you get a Check Engine Light (CELL) after the installation an EFFIE, the installation is faulty or the EFFIE is set too high. Try turning the EFFIE down to a lower setting and see if the CELL goes away. If it does, you can gradually raise the setting by increments and watch the for the CELL. This way you can find the highest setting your vehicle's computer will tolerate. An additional note on this is that some engine codes do not turn off right away. These require the error condition to be absent for a certain amount of driving. If you have the OBD2 code reader, you can clear the codes manually, but if not, you may need to wait for some days to see if the code will go away.
24. How long does it take to fit?
It depends on the vehicle but somewhere between 4 and 5 hours (for cars,vans),more on the lorry's. It is only a few pieces of tubes and wires needs to be connected. The most part of the installation it to find a suitable place ( need to be fit on lower level than the water tank,to be babble to fill it up by the gravity) for the fuel cell and fixed it properly and safety. The rest part of the hho kit is the water tank and the bubbler,they are easy to fit using a cable ties.
25. Will it effect my Insurance or Warranty?
This is a fuel enhancement system and, because it's semi-permanent, is not considered to be a permanent modification to the vehicle (it's classed as no different to putting a high octane fuel in the tank). Conditions that may void a vehicle's warranty are specified in a law called the Moss-Magnusson Act. This Act stipulates that a warranty supplier cannot void a warranty because a vehicle is fitted with aftermarket parts. The Moss Magnusson act covers the USA. However it was the basis for the European Law passed in 2003. In October 2003, European Union legislation affecting the motor trade came into force. Its full title is 'Block Exemption Regulations 1400/2002' (in short 'BER'). BER was bought in to close the loopholes that the warranty companies were using to get out of paying warranties to their customers.
Even in extreme cases. of aftermarket wheels voiding an engine warranty!! Our system is classed as a NON- permanent fuel enhancement system, like the new 'super fuel'.
A permanent enhancement like a turbo would void a warranty. BER states that a warranty company has to prove beyond all reasonable doubt that the HHO system directly caused the engine failure.
To do this they have to commission an independent automotive engineer to do a report and pay court costs. If they were just 'trying it on' then this would not be financially viable for them.
The Office of Fair Trading is on our side here also. THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION DECLARED THAT SUCH CLAUSES IN A WARRANTY DOCUMENT WOULD REPRESENT 'AN UNJUSTIFIED RESTRICTION FOR THE CONSUMER'. We do not modify the engine, only the fuel type. To date, we have not heard of any engine failures on vehicles running on Hydrogen as an alternative fuel. For these reasons, it should not affect the customer's insurance premium or vehicle warranty but they must inform their insurers/warranty companies or it may invalidate their insurance/warranty. For DVLA purposes this system is classed as a dual fuel like LPG. We issue notes to our customers for DVLA, the insurance and warranty companies when the system is installed explaining the system, procedures etc. For a list of participating Insurance companies and more information please click on the arrow.
26. Do I need to inform anyone else before or after the installation? (UK vehicles only).
You can inform the DVLA of a change of fuel type. It would now be classed as dual fuel vehicle. Please visit their website www.dvla.gov.uk for further information. Exactly the same as you would have to do for LPG system. If your car was registered after 31st March 2001, you may be able to change your road tax band so you pay less road tax.
27. Can I pass a MOT with Installed HHO kit on my Vehicle?
Yes,that's NO PROBLEM -
The emission level it will be at least 3 times LESS than before. -
Just the kit need to produce the HHO gas when the engine running ONLY (see installation page)
