My Son got into his car one day, backed out of the driveway , and went ,about, two blocks before he realized that one of the car’s tires was flat. Sounds dumb. But how many of you walk around your vehicle and visually check before getting in and driving anywhere?
How often do you all check the engine oil, water, washer fluid, the drive belts, is anything leaking?
When is your next oil change due? Still have windshield wipers? What about the battery? Are the posts corroded ? Does your car start easy in cold weather?
How many notice a tire that might be a little low and exclaim ‘ I’ll fix that later’ and move onto other things. How long before we ever remember about that tire?
Yes, the first day of Winter is tomorrow. Very cold weather has spread all the way down to the South East United States, and that air came down from Canada. And cold weather has an effect on how our vehicles run.
Yes, and guess what, The first day of Summer is just around the corner. Your car will run different in those hot months as well.
It is very important to check our cars and trucks and buses and… more often in cold weather.
All of these factors have some baring on the fuel economy of our vehicles. Fuel manufacturers are regulated to provide different fuel mixtures according seasons of the year. A cold weather mixture is more expensive to produce because of the change over and retooling that has to occur due to cold weather months. Yeah, I know, I can hear you all yelling out,
‘Those dang#@%%^$&*oil companies anyway’, I am not here to make any political statements, but to try and aid you to the awareness that you do not have to get lousy fuel mileage.
Old or new, take care of your car. The amount of time spent just checking stuff out on your vehicle will be a lot less than if your low tire decides to blow out at high speed, The drive belt snaps and leaves you stuck on the side of some highway with no heat. Or how many different things do you think could happen.
Some of you work on your own vehicles, change the oil and filters and light maintenance and others are lucky enough to have found a good honest mechanic. There are a lot of mechanics out there and I’d say, the majority are ok.
Not doing regular maintenance can lead to your vehicle performing a lot less than it should. This will effect the fuel economy and, guess what? cost you a lot more money. Today gasoline prices are at or around $4.00 a gallon. How much does it cost to fill your car? How hard do you work for the money you have? And, If you let the car go to hell, so to speak, this is going to cost plenty more than if one had just taken care to see that everything with the car was good. See something broken, fix it, even if it is a small thing. Broken small things can lead to broken big things.
Some things that will help with better mileage are change the oil at regular intervals, that includes the filter. Generally the newer oils can be changed at 5000 miles. Keep the tires on your vehicle inflated to there proper weight. The vehicle will roll easier and balanced. Make sure your tires are all wearing evenly.
Some have used nitrogen to fill their tires, because nitrogen pressure does not fluctuate due to weather changes and there is a noted increase in fuel economy. Nitrogen can be had at many tire stores and the cost is about $10.00 a tire. It does pay for itself over time. Having tires at the same pressure all the time saves on tire wear. Saves on some engine wear, because the easier the wheels roll the less the motor has to work. You might think that ratio is small, but over time with the carbon deposits etc from a sluggish running car will shorten the life of an engine a lot. Keep the motor clean,inside and out. cleaning the outside can show you where any leak might be or if there are any coolant, oil or other fluids leaking.
In some cases, one can see if there is anything bent cracked or broken much easier.
The motor was designed to be lubricated. The inside is not, all together , smooth. There are hone marks through out the motor that are design to hold oil for proper lubrication. With the low octane fuels we are forced to use from the pump, now you can yell and scream, the fuels are not wholly consumed and carbon deposits are formed inside on the motor hone surfaces and actually prevent lubrication. Low octane prevents the engine from performing at full power and what ever is not left on the inside walls, is burned by the catalytic converter . Bottom line then?
I’ll have you know ,the guys that build the cars know this. OK So let’s increase the octane and get a burn that is so close to complete that the inside of the motor gets cleaned out and lubricated once again.
If that happens, bet the engine oil is not very dark after 5000 miles. How would you like to change the oil in your car one time a year.? How about just changing the filter every 5000 miles? Do you know that as well as getting your cars motor more power, the fuel mileage will increase. How much time and money can be saved. Find out how HERE
>What about your driving habits? Hey, I don’t want to get personal. Drive at a constant speed uses less fuel than slowing down and speeding up all the time. What about rush hour traffic? Some stuff will be just part of living in crowed places. In any heavy traffic situation it is not advisable to use the cruse control.
But just try to do the best you can to flow with the traffic. Cruse control is great on the open highway as long as you are not prone to fall asleep at the wheel. You should get the idea. Just be responsible. One can actually see the difference.
Sometimes known as HHO, or hydrogen assist technology.
It is pertaining to hydrogen systems that supplement the regular fuel you would use in your car, truck tractor, boat, go cart, among many applications, to increase horsepower, improve fuel mileage, extend the life of the engine, and , pollute a lot less.
These systems create hydrogen as the engine needs through electrolysis ,”Hydrogen on Demand”,with no excess, so there is never any storage of hydrogen in your vehicle. It is a safe and economical way to increase the power of your vehicles engine. The engine runs smoother, quieter, and cooler, as well as cleaner. With hydrocarbons decreased 30 to 50% the engine will stay cleaner on the inside allowing the engine oil to last much longer between changes, cutting the cost of maintenance. Also, with the engine cleaner it is lubricated better, extending the life of the engine. I am talking in large amounts.
You all, for the most part, spend your hard earned money to keep your transportation reliable. You spend a lot of money on fuel. But your vehicle only uses about 40% of the fuel you buy due to low octane fuels and the sluggish electrical programing installed on your vehicle at the factory. OOPs, they didn’t want you to know that… Now you do and it’s true. We’re stuck with gasoline for some time still. At least look at a way to use the majority of the gasoline you buy without sending the other 60% out the tail pipe in the form pollution . I know some of you use diesel fuel. PMs or particulate matter, commonly known as soot, has been a big polluting problem. With a hydrogen on demand system you can get 75 to 80% decrease. We have seen 90+ percent.
There are many ,many sites out on the internet that want to sell you on this technology. It has taken me years to find the best companies with the best proven products. I have mention four that have proved themselves as reliable . These companies not only provide High Quality hydrogen systems but will give you an education vast enough for you to know everything there is to know about this technology.
One of the four is a group called Advanced HHO , a part of Top Energy LLC. I really enjoy their web site because it so easy to navigate . There , everything you wish to know about hydrogen on demand. Go farther for less. Another group and with very reasonable pricing is Green Source. Green Source was written up in Energetica International magazine in 2014, a well known international technology reporter. Fuel Saver mpg has been around for many years, is a top manufacturer of Hydrogen Assist systems. To purchase from Fuel saver you’ll find the complete system all in one kit. That includes all the electronics. It all comes with explicit instruction plus great support. All of these Companies really know Hydrogen 0n Demand technology.
There seems to be some controversy whether electronic enhancement is necessary to allow proper operating profiles for the Hydrogen supplement. What am I talking about?
When you would add a hydrogen supplement to your fuel system there are certain ways to allow the Engine control unit to accept the new increases in octane, horsepower, increase in mileage, etc. by changing frequency. These enhancements include , EFIE
( electronic fuel injection enhancer) for vehicles older than 1996, as well as new, Fuel Savor Flash chip, This adds a new profile to the ECU (engine control unit), Map (manifold absolute pressure sensor) frequency changes, MAF ( mass air flow sensor) frequency changes. Map and Mass are really good for diesel application. Plus some more…
One Hydrogen on Demand manufacturer suggests that none of these are necessary, and they build a real good looking product. They say one can clear the oxygen sensor and add a new profile
from the engine control unit and doing it by yourself easy. It maybe easy to clear the ECU on your engine but when you allow the ECU to accept the supplement, it still has the limitations that were built in at the factory . These limitations will only allow minimal gains from the hydrogen unit. To reprogram the ECU yourself can be done but with a lot of trial and error. To get an electronic enhancement that is built specifically for you vehicle and one that allows the ECU to go beyond the lean limits etc. is an easy solution.
Personally, I think for vehicles newer than 1996 the flash chip would be easier because the correct profiles for your vehicle are already programed there. Also it does allow you to go beyond the lean limits of your ECU. The factory does program the devise for your specific vehicle. Vehicles older than 1996 , an EFIE application applies. For Diesel application, A MAP / MAF frequency application that is easy to do and there are devices to add to keep it in line, An easy do it yourself application. MAP/MAF pertain to carburetor equip engines.
To find out all you need to know about these devices, go to any of the four companies below.
There is much research to do concerning Hydrogen supplements, and even with great results from HHO units, the search for better mileage will continue for years to come.
See, I think it really pays to get educated about hydrogen supplements.
Some good places for that are here, Get educated about hydrogen on demand first, then make a move.
There are two principal types of Gasoline Engines. Motors that are Carbureted and motors that are fuel injected.
Most of all vehicles after the mid 1980s are Fuel injected. Most of those before the mid 1980s have carburetors.
Engines with carburetors mix the Fuel and air as it enters the engine through the intake manifold on the top of the Engine. One will notice the presence of the carburetor on the intake manifold. Usually the fuel-air mixture is set with a adjustment screw located on the carburetor and will not vary due to the signals from any sensors that the vehicle may have.
There are two categories of Fuel Injected Vehicles ; Throttle Body Injection and Direct Port Injection, and both types rely on signals from the various sensors in the vehicle for delivery of a specific amount of fuel to achieve a Fuel-air mixture of 14.7:1, 14.7 parts air to each 1 part fuel, which is the most effective mixture for the engine.
Throttle body injection uses one or two fuel injectors located in the throttle body of the air intake.
According to the various sensor signals received by the Vehicles ECU, a Pulsed signal is sent to the Fuel Injector to release fuel into the stream of air entering the intake manifold of the engine to complete Combustion in the cylinder. The cycle of this signal (on time versus off time) does determine how much Fuel is delivered to the engine.
Direct port injection will be most of the of systems you will find and they work on a similar principle, but The fuel injectors release the fuel directly into the cylinder for the most effective distribution of fuel. Direct Port injected vehicles will have a fuel injector for every cylinder. Each injector will open and close once Per combustion stroke, and the amount of time open determines the amount of fuel released into the Cylinder.
Earlier I talked about Hydrogen on demand systems and how to add these systems to an internal combustion engine to supplement the gasoline, or diesel , to increase the octane/C-tain values for a lot of benefit. People have question about doing anything to change the way the engine acts, and rightly so.
This is why I give you all an education about what Hydrogen on Demand systems are and exactly how they work. Not all vehicles are built the same thus the on board computer systems act different.
Sensors that gather information that is fed to computer systems are different as well. And the fact of the matter is these components were built correctly. They really do the job very well. So when installing a hydrogen system we do not make any attempt to change that.
The idea behind adding a fuel supplement to your vehicles motor is not to trick the sensors and/or computer into making adjustments, but, simply , to train the system to accept the supplement. And because the HHO devices are add on, there is no modification to the motor occurring. Yes, manipulating voltage and some air flow, but the end result is still the 14.7:1 air fuel mixture. You would not be adding more fuel.
The hydrogen increases the octane value so the motor will work more like it was built to do. Using regular gas ,that is, low octane, the motor always runs sluggish compared to what an octane booster would do. When you see the difference, you will never go back to low octane anything again.
Once the HHO system is installed, it will create the extra fuel as you drive from the little water source you carry around. Hydrogen only as you need it. The savings in gasoline will be large and you will prolong the life of the motor.
Most folks are interested in saving money. Hydrogen on Demand systems are not very expensive because the whole idea is to help people to save, to become less dependent on petroleum , to aid people toward becoming more aware of the environment. The knowledge about this technology is Free. The more you know, the more you can do for yourselves and for others . So be it.

Adding a hydrogen on demand system to your vehicle is not difficult if you are mechanically minded.
There are things to remember about safety, and performance. Most are common sense.
How many of you talk on the cell phone while pumping gasoline into you car? NOT a good idea.
The static from the cell phone could easily cause the fumes to flash burning the crap out of the”I just can’tput my phone down”, not to mention could also blow the gas station clean out of the zip code. But for those who are invincible , you’ve nothing to worry about except maybe your “super hero” status after they scrape your burnt offerings down the drain. In fact, A good candidate for the Darwin award.
For those smart folks who care about staying on this planet for now, hydrogen is flammable also, but using common sense ,and being educated will keep everything safe.
Hydrogen supplement kits, good ones, come with everything you need to comfortably install in your vehicle.
Well, except the tools. But most good kits come with complete instructions , all the fuel line , and electrical wires and fuses, and various valves , etc. Some manufacturers supple video and/or photos to help define like, where your at, and where to go next. Actually, it’s very cool, easy , and you can be comfortable.
To cause the reaction between the water and electric to separate the hydrogen and oxygen molecules we use an electrolyte. Some of this chemical escapes from the dry cell and some gets deposited in the bubbler, but still not all is cleaned from the gas. This gets deposited in the engine and over time will clog EGR valve and other small ports. So that is not acceptable. The way to prevent this is a simple ,inexpensive device called an air dryer.
This is set last before the gas goes into the air intake. You can get good ones for about 24 dollars $43 with stainless hardware. Many good kits include the air dryer. It will save you time and money, and keep you , like I said, comfortable with your system.
The benefit from these system are usually large. You can read about that on this site and at my other blog ,
The electronics are simple for the most part, then again , it depends on how handy you are. I know a brilliant teacher that can not wrap his head around how to hammer a nail or how to use a screw driver… You get the point.
Changing the frequency of the electrical system will give you great success with your hydrogen on demand system. One very good and easy way is to install a Fuel Savor Flash Chip. These are built for HHO systems and will be programed for your vehicle. It gets installed behind the vehicle ECU inspection port , usually on the lower part of the dash board. Easy connect. To learn more about this go to Advanced HHO
I would like to see people more aware of their options. The hydrogen on demand systems are safe . Sometimes people are not. These systems are not expensive and will save you Money, a lot of money, in fuel and maintenance cost. You can do a lot for the air we breath using a60%to 90%+ pollution free hydrogen on demand system.
This technology is not bound by pattens and the more who understand the better. Systems built by manufacturers are protected, but these devices come with warranty. They also look like factory equipment. Major advancement has happened in this industry. Saving you all money and helping you toward learning more about how to take care of your cars and your environment is the primary goal here.
