Hydrogen Gas Generator for car?

ok i know im not the first to do this but im looking at getting my volvo v70r to run on Hydrogen Gas,

the problem been how big a Hydrogen Generator would i need to build ????

as i have looked at many around the web that feed the engine at the same time as petrol cutting fuel bills by upto 30%,,,,,

so the more hydrogen the lesser petrol needed sounds good to me as the car only does 16mpg

i know i can build a good Hydrogen Generator but only want to produce hho as the engine is running for safety,

i plan to do this from a seperate alternator so that when the engine stops its back to water,so say i produce too much gas rather than store it ,what would be the safest way to get rid of it {hopfully through a presure release valve into the air would this be safe????or any suggestions on how to get it to cut the power to the plates under presure a fully auto system with a cut of switch to the res water tank as well,,,,

any info would be good

kind regards

Karl

    let me start off by saying Hydrogen is a great option for the concept of free energy. I built my first hydrogen cell about 5 years ago. Have converted over 50 vehicles in the last 10 years (gydrogen and EV) and now currently run 2 trucks (and another EV), my home hot water heater, home stove and home generator on hydrogen for free with caught rain water and the help of a $10 solar panel. I offer a step by step DIY guide to walk anyone interested threw the process. You can find it at www agua-luna com or you can email me.

    There are basically 3 safe ways to make and use it... chemically, electrically and molecularly, the first 2 being easier so I'll only discuss them here. The fallowing steps were taking directly out of a DIY guide I offer to those who would like to run their vehicles or home on hydrogen safely. The entire guide is available at www agua-luna com

    On demand h2 generators are a bit different from the Hollywood versions like seen Chain Reaction with Keanu Reeves, that tend to explode violently every time a film is being made. However when used in an on-demand system there is no storage of hydrogen and oxygen in its gas form, only liquid (water) and is only transformed into gas “on-demand” in small cylinder size amounts. It’s actually safer then gasoline as it doesn’t evaporate, creating explosive fumes in the tank like gas. the following were actually taken out of my $5 guide available at www agua-luna com

    Chemically

    1. You’ll need a 6inch x 1ft schedule 40 pvc pipe. With pvc cement glue a cap on the bottom and use a screw on cap for the top. Drill a small hole (1/4inch or so) in the side close to the top, screwing in a small copper shut off valve. Place a few feet of stranded (food grade is good) flex hose to the valve and into the air intake of your engine (carburetor or fuel injections).

    2. Now crunch up a couple aluminum cans (beer cans, soda cans etc) and drop them into the pvc pipe, along with a couple cups of lye (Red Devil drain opener has lye in it, some Clorox and Drano’s do to).

    3. Then simply add water, screw on the top and wait a few minutes.

    What happens in simplicity is that aluminum and lye don’t really get along so they battle, and as always the innocent civilians (water H2O) that the most casualties, by giving up its hydrogen and oxygen. This then builds up in the void of the pipe and is ready to be vented into your engine, by opening the valve. You may need to start your engine on gas then switch it off after the hydrogen starts burning.

    Electrical is a bit easier then Chemically.

    1. Simply take a small solar panel 1.5 amps is what I use ($9 at harborfreight.com), connect the 2 wires from the panel +- to 2 conductors (carbon cores of batteries work well, just be careful removing it from the jacket), but any conductive material will work ie. Copper, aluminum, steel, etc.

    2. Drop the wires into a water tank (I use 55gal drums), make sure they don’t touch each other.

    3. Drill a small hole (1/4inch or so) in the side close to the top, screwing in a small copper shut off valve. Place a few feet of stranded (food grade is good) flex hose to the valve and into the air intake of your engine (carburetor or fuel injections).

    4. Then simply add water, screw on the top cap and wait.

    After a few hours tiny bubbles will form and rise off one conductor (that’s hydrogen) and even smaller bubbles that just looks like foam will rise off the other (oxygen). I don’t remember which likes the positive and which likes the neg hydrogen or the oxygen.

    The third method is more complicated and is what I use for my vehicles. It’s just a modified Joe’s Cell, there’s a step by step DIY guide available to walk you threw the process here www agua-luna com

    It also covers the other 2 methods described in more detail.

    Hope this helped, feel free to contact me personally if you have any questions if you’d like assistance in making your first self sufficient steps, I’m willing to walk you step by step threw the process. I’ve written several how-to DIY guides available at www agua-luna com on the subject. I also offer online and on-site workshops, seminars and internships to help others help the environment.

    But when you mix air and hydrogen don't that make water? Or is it when its ignited it makes water? or both?? H2 and O2 combine to make water only at elevated temperature, like inside the engine. ether way this cant be good for a car? To much H2 mixed in internal combustion engine can cause backfiring and potential of buring outside of the cylinder. water or steam in the pistons cant be good, A little steam can be injected for short periods to clean piston. if there is any blow by it will get into the oil, and it cant be good for the pistons rings cat. o2 and muffler. Yes water can condense in the oil, but if the rings are that bad, oil is burning in the engine (blue smoke ring a bell) Most cars today use stainless steel in the exhaust to stop rusting. The exhaust from a gasoline engine isn't 50% water, yikes, it's mostly N2 gas from the air. On a molecule basis, exhaust is 73% N2, 14% H2O, and 12% CO2. Is this safe even if it does help on gas?

    Good concept, regenerative H from H2o is impractical anf not feasible. On the molecular level the H in H2O is a rather involved process. The extraction of H from H2O does leave trace elements of water, it is low in H and needs to recycle naturally to attain the proper levels again.

    You could convert a Mercedes or any diesel to Bio Diesel for about $1500.

    Governments and Oil Companies, do not promote that because it is a tax and revenue loss for them.

    I've come across a lot of agua-luna's answers on this topic and I must say he gives EXCELLENT advice. I would go with his suggestion if you have the mechanical mind to do so. Me personally, I have intermediate mechanical ability. I bought a conversion kit for my car and hooked it up in about 45 minutes. I get almost 50 mpg and my car runs smooth as silk.

    I wrote a review on the top 4 conversion kits.
