Please keep us posted when you build your new unit.
It is really so simple it is not even funny. The PVC cannister has a neg. and a pos. stainless steel bolt through the screw on lid ( weak point of the unit, heat from the engine causes expansion and leaks water and gas), the guy used low-grade stainless steel elec. socket covers connected neg. and pos. to the bolts on the lid, then it runs through a relay and something else and back to your battery. An amp meter is used to monitor the out-put, which couses heat also. The stainless steel needs to be higher quality than what mine has, I am getting some major corrosion and peeling. A hose runs out of the top of the cannister to a clear plastic container entering through the bottom, a hose on the lid of this container goes to the intake right before the turbo. This container is called a bubbler, it is about 3/4 full of distilled water (canister also has distilled water) and you can see the hydrogen gas bubbles going through this clear container to the top of the water and then out the hose. I think other units use a stainless steel container instead of the PVC pipe I have that leaks too much making it a whole lot less efiencent. This concept really does work, better economy, a cleaner burn w/ a whole lot more oxygen, and a nice power increase with lower EGT's! I have run it about 2,000 miles, no problems with engine what so ever. When it is all working right the exhaust has no smell and less of it, and this truck has the pump turned up a lot! I almost have 300,000 miles on this truck and when this system is running right it pulls an equal load as well maybe better than our '06 6.0! I am going to get better stainless steel plates, and build a better canister for it to produce gas in, I have a friend and an uncle researching a better way. I will keep you posted.
