They work, but the size of the unit needed to see any major gain would take up half of your bed.

there were a couple guys here messing with that, havent heard from them in a while. but i hear the same thing, the amount of energy or space needed is not very practical. seems to me, best option, i would think is to create at home, tank it, then ru it like mater/meth. but the amount of energy needed to produce hydrogen with ommon household items is a net energy loss...

Plus I hear that due to the way our injectors fire it doesn't really work with our trucks. I don't know if that's true or not.

The last time that I looked into this, was that if you had the split shot injecters, don't bother. If you have single shots, then you can do it with some pretty good results. I think that I still have some plans for one if you want a copy of one. I ca email if you like or worst case, give you the site where I got it.
