Hydrogen as a fuel source is becoming a more viable idea all the time and many motoring companies are actively involved in developing the concept. For example, GM already has some Hydrogen fuel cars and there are even some city bus services that run on this type of fuel. But what does this mean for the average motorist? There aren’t a lot of hydrogen cars on the market yet, so you will want to be tinkering with additions you can make to your current vehicle.
You may have heard about installing a hydrogen generator kit on cars to make it more efficient in fuel consumption. A lot of people are doing it and it has proven to make their cars from 30-60 percent more efficient than they used to be. There is absolutely no reason as to why you should not be one of these people enjoying the benefits of having a hydrogen generator kit.
Basically, a hydrogen car kit will make your car function somewhat like a hybrid. You do not need to have majored in chemistry to be able to understand how a hydrogen generator kit works or even how you can build your own for your car. HHO basically works by electrolyzing water to give out a gas called Oxyhydrogen. When Oxyhydrogen or “brown gas” is ignited, it burns to produce energy and water vapor.
So basically, you will be running with a lot of water under your hood. This water is then broken down by electrolysis using sparks from the car battery. After the electrolysis, the Oxyhydrogen gas is sucked in by the engine and it can be combined with your normal petroleum-based fuel. So when folks talk about running your car on water, that isn’t really accurate. It is more correct to say that the car runs on a combination of regular petrol-based fuel and HHO.
The following are just some of the benefits of installing a hydrogen generator kit:
- Increased energy while running your car engine as it will be running on HHO (Oxyhydrogen) and gas.
- Lower carbon emissions from your car.
- The lifespan of your vehicle’s engine is increased by at least a half more time.
- Your hydrogen generator kit can be built in your own home at a very reasonable cost.
