6.0 & HHO

With so many posts about the benefits of HHO and the experimentation that is going on with great enthusiasm, can we get a specific engine report?

The 6.0 PSD's have split shot injectors - majority of any HHO generated is burned on the first shot. The benefit of HHO would be on the 2nd shot.

Has anyone experimented enough with 6.0's and HHO to see any benefit from HHO?

An idea would be for a larger HHO generator? Someone on here has been talking about a 5gal HHO generator mounted in his bed - would that generate enough HHO to see a benefit to the 6.0?

Enquiring 6.0 Minds want to know?

I want to know as well.

In my quest for better fuel mileage, I've got a Hydrodrive kit I'm going to install soon and will post up the results on this topic when I get it installed and running properly.

So far, my truck is stock and I've added an X3 tuner and I'm running an economy tune. I picked up almost 3 MPG (hand calculated) in city driving. I've also changed to full synthetics and had small (about 1 MPG) increase.

Stay tuned for some real results and not a lot of opinion crap. I"ll tell it like it is without any endorsements or bias.

What is the Hydrodrive Kit? Do you have a link where you got it? I'm really interested in your results.

Thanks.

found a decent site with premade kits, not sure if we should be looking at the professional car truck series or the semi kit the semi kit shows 7 liter motors and bigger, not to much detail on the professional kits but the others are explained very well

Hydrodrive

Still haven't got the HHO kit installed yet, but hope to soon and will definately post results. After achieving +3 MPG with the X3, I will install a kitty test pipe to try and increase results before the HHO and have a good baseline to see if HHO on a 6.0 has any merit. Stay tuned.

Hydrogen Embrittlement

Hydrogen embrittlement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This could be really bad. anyways anyone considering HHO should study up on this. It would be a shame that after a period of time our engine become brittle and fall apart.

Many of us are interested in HHO. The problem is any time a thread is started the nay sayers come in and tell you why it doesn't work or why you shouldn't do it. I suspect there are folks who have the answers you desire but are reluctant to share them and be insulted and talked down to. I will share some things though. The best electrolytes seem to be Potassium Hydroxide and Sodium Hydroxide. We have a problem with our diesels though. When making large amounts of HHO some of the electrolyte is carried over in the HHO. This electrolyte when it condenses in your intercooler has the potential to attack the aluminum. You will therefore need to install an effective scribber in the HHO line to remove the electrolyte from the HHO. You will probably need more than 4 lpm to really help with fuel economy and will consume about 50 amps with a properly designed HHO generator. HHO Forums (name of a web site) is a good place to start gathering info. There are a lot of good folks over there who are willing to share info. Be very careful in buying HHO units off of the web. There are some good makers but far more scam artists out there. The problem is figuring out who is who.

Hydrogen Embrittlement is real and comes into play when you have very high cylinder temps. Temps. like 1800f. How many of you are considering running those kinds of temperatures? Hydrogen Embrittlement isn't the only problems you are likely to have. HHO if anything, when properly set up should slightly lower cylinder temps.

Don't think many will see 1800 deg. What are some of the other problems?
