HHO Fuel Cells For Cars, Are They Good or Bad? HHO fuel cell, some facts. Hydrogen gas is made up of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. It has a low ignition temperature so it take s a lot to get it to burn, pretty safe fuel. It is lighter than air, so if it does spill the gas will rise. So unless your in a closed environment the gas will dissipate into the atmosphere. Then again pretty safe. Cost is low as all it takes is distilled water and some electrolysis, once you build or buy your hydrogen generator. The power it takes is less than it take to run your wipers. Life Span of The Fuel Cells. Unfortunately they do not last forever. They can last from as little as 90 days to five or six years. This all depends on how they are constructed, the quality of the materials and the electrolyte used. The best material to used is 316L, L stands for low carbon, stainless steel. The fuel cells manufacture with 316L stainless steel usually last five times longer. Using a PWM (Pulse Width Modulator) will also helps increase the life span by reducing the current flow. The use of distilled water and the right electrolyte is also important. The best electrolyte is Potassium Hydroxide. Will they cause damage to the engine? Lets go over the equipment needed to install an HHO Generator kit into your car, truck, RV, or 18 wheeler. You will need a hho generator, distilled water and some type of electrolyte. Your car battery powers the electrolysis which makes your hydrogen gas. The engine vacuum system draws the gas out of the generator into the engine. An enhanced sensor ensures proper fuel mixture is maintained. As you can see is the only thing we actually added was a hho generator. With all this said here is what hydrogen gas does to your engine. Improves gas mileage up to 60 percent Eliminate harmful exhaust emission into the environment Adds oxygen to the environment Increases your engine power and performance Prevent carbon build up Reduces your engine operating temperature With all stated above, you can see that instead of damaging your engine, you increase performance and power. You rid carbon deposit and add oxygen to the environment and you reduce your engine operating temperature. All this together assures better and longer performance from your vehicle. How much maintenance does it require? Actually maintenance is really easy and not much to it. Every six to eight hundred miles you may have to add about one cup of water to your system. This will vary on each vehicle. Then approximately every six or seven months you should empty, flush and refill your unit. That is about it. What about the cars warranty? According to the law, which is the Moss Magnusson Act, dealers cannot void warranties because of aftermarket parts. If they can prove that any particular aftermarket parts caused engine failure they can void the warranty. Most hydrogen generator kits do not modify the engine in anyway and if they did they have to prove that particular modification did the damage to the engine. So far I have not heard on one incident. As you can see from this information there is more good coming from HHO Generator Kits than not. I have two units and are very happy with them.
