Water Gas

Water gas is a great idea if you need to save money running your car. Using a catalyst and passing an electric current through water produces a form a hydrogen that burns 10 times better than gasoline. It is known as hydroxy gas, Klein’s gas, or Brown’s gas.

So it is not really a matter of a car running directly on water, but on the gas produced by splitting this element. For our purposes, it is fine to call it water gas. Almost everyone using water gas utilizes a kit which is an add on to a standard car engine. It supplements the petroleum or diesel entering the carburetor with hydrogen (hydroxy) gas.

To run a car entirely on water is currently not very practical. I am sure it will come; remember the size of computers back in the seventies, and despite their size, their lack of power? But for now hybrid cars are the only practicable option. That means a pre-fabricated kit costing about $6,000 or a manual, materials and mechanic, costing about $350, or $200 less if you don’t need a mechanic.

And that is more than okay. With the addition of water gas to a standard engine, an average sedan can reach in excess of 100 miles per gallon of fuel. Mileage improvements range from 25{5c4d531f50b705cb76082034c39cb335df474a3b828d613bd2826cfdf0db1d3b} to 70{5c4d531f50b705cb76082034c39cb335df474a3b828d613bd2826cfdf0db1d3b}. What is sure is that you will put less gas in your tank each time you are at the gas station.

How Does Water Gas Work?

To produce water gas in your car or truck all you need is an instruction manual, basic materials available from hardware and electrical stores and, possibly, a mechanic. There are three main elements.

First is the water gas cell. The casing can be most kinds of plastic, the best probably being CPVC, due to its resistance to high temperatures. It is lined with aluminum and a catalyst added. These vary from flat to circular, from aluminum to platinum. When an electric current is passed through the water which is added to the cell, H2O is converted to HHO via the catalyst and hydroxy gas bubbles through the water. Very easy to fit and remove, this water gas generator will need to be lifted off and cleaned every month or two.

The hydrogen then passes through a simple vaporizer on its way to the carburetor. This is simply to ensure that no unwanted vapor strays into the engine. It costs a few dollars.

The last element is an electronic control unit connected to the ignition system and the generator. Again, it is extremely simple to make and very cheap. With the right instructions, you can’t go wrong.

And that really is about the size of it for anyone interested in running a car on water gas.
