HHO in your Diesel?

I was wondering if anyone has tried making one of the Hydrogen generators?And if so how it worked for you...Also any pictures of it or any or tips on it..Maybe how to hook it up?

It won't work, don't try it, if you want to play with water, then play with water.

why wont it work? Please explain. I know of one guy in town who has one in his DMax, and he sees almost 35 MPG with it on his econo tune, empty.

OK, I guess I'll take another crack at this. The physics just doesn't work. Your alternator will produce less than 1 horse power worth of HHO on an ongoing basis. I've seen a demo of one on the bench and the flame it produced was pretty small.
That having been said, a lot of people say they get more power and better gas milage. My theory, and that of some others is that it works like a very complicated water injection system. All the bubbles also put out a mist of water vapor that is sucked into the engine. The water vapor is turned into steam which expands more than just the heated air, adding power. It also absorbs a lot of heat and cools the exhaust gasses.
My advise is if you want to pour water into your truck for more power, go with water injection.

Its not im trying to get more power or anything just read on being able to produce enough HHO in a diesel to be able to run 80% HHO and 20% Diesel and if a person was able to do that much they would save a lot of diesel.

Your never going to get anywhere near that kind of ratio unless you carry a tank of the stuff with you. I know the people selling the HHO generators make all kinds of claims, but even the most tame violate several laws of physics.
Google water injection. You'll find all kinds of info on it. Most is for racing (thats where most of my first hand knowledge comes from). But there are a few that talk about systems for day to day driving, and claim decent milage improvments. Several give plans for cheap DIY setups.
The military used water injection for years on aircraft, from supercharged piston engined fighters to KC-135 jet tankers (I worked on those) so I know that it works for power. Incresed power at a given fuel flow should equate to better milage.
Just my $.02

i have been sucessful i have seen a 3mpg increase i will take some pictures tommorrow i have been toying with hydrogen generators for a while now the version i have now is pressurized so it raises the boiling point of the water there fore you dont get steam "water" in your engine. but to each their own opinion

but i havent heard of anyone getting huge increases from them you would have to have an actual generator to make that much hydrogen
