HHO Update

As promised in the previous post, here’s the update on my HHO system.

I’m sad to report that the system has not worked well yet. Ever since it was installed the gas mileage plummeted. Usually I got 32.5 to 34.7 miles to a gallon with one exception of over 41 mpg (the mileage was 104.7 and I filled up only 2.505 gallon- but it was a rare happening right after I’ve changed the oil and spark plugs) highway miles. With the unit installed I got only 29.9 mpg highway and about 27.9 city driving.

Yesterday I took the system apart and found out that while the Brown gas was forming in the water containers, it didn’t exit through the hose. I didn’t feel anything coming out from the hose. I plunged the hose into water and there’s nothing- no bubbles. So the next step I would need to take the bumper off and find out why the gas didn’t go up through the hose.

I also did a lot more research and I believe I also need a MAP sensor enhancer at the very least. It runs from a little over $30 to $60 on e-bay. I may also need an O2 sensor enhancer, but it can wait until later. The first thing I need to do now is to make sure that the gas reaches the intake manifold.

I’m not giving up hope yet, and I’ll keep you posted. So long for now………
