Hi everyone, Sam from Tasmania here.
I am looking forward to learning about HHO here, and it seems there is a heap of information.

Hi Crayus
I have been using HHO for 4 years now and you have many questions to answer here. I am currently building a dual cell setup for a trucking courier company and am happy to share my findings,  information and experiences with you as this may help you with your decisions to go forward.
You can get me on 041 971 4876 most days as I am a self employed electronics technician with a fitting and turning trade behind me so I can help you with the electrical and mechanical construction and installation should you choose to test this out.
regards Tubby

Hi Dave
I have never used copper but there is one way to test this and that would be to soak a piece of copper tubing in Potassium Hydroxide solution for a week or two and watch what condition it is in once removed and washed.
This will tell you everything you need to know.
I did this as found that some people were toting brass and Potassium Hydroxide react together so I did the above and found that all it did was tarnish the brass. Since then i have been using brass fittings and had no issues. My longest operating cell has been 2 years with no problem.
Just so you are aware I purchased a green force cell and after having to modify it within 2 years the seals perished leaking Potassium Hydroxide onto the air conditioning condenser, costing me over $600 to repair it.
Since then I have be building my own and no more issues. I did a small video of the test jig used to burn in my cells on you tube if you want to see one built.
cheers Tubby

Thanks Paul
funny enough I dont have to tweak much as all is needed is a top up of distilled water every month or 6 weeks and I know when this is due as the current across the cell begins to increase. I have a Jaycar digital current meter mounted in the dash of my ute and this gives me a current reading via a remote shunt all the time.
So other then that it pretty much runs itself, oh and I forgot the bubbler as I normally top it up at the same time. Very happy with the outcome and every cell I am making are behaving identically. I have just built one for an XR Falcon and because the guys is a bit of a nerd and likes gagets hes going to install a hydrogen sensor and other devices plus is going to have it dynoed before and after to see if there is any appreciable differences so I am looking for to following his progress.

Welcome back Tubby, and good news on your latest system update...

It is an interesting road that HHO pushes us down, just remember to ALWAYS keep tweaking your system to get the best out of it....

Regards
Paul

greetings all from Townsville
Well I joined in march 2014 and installed a unit in my brand new Toyota Hilux Ute 2.7 litre Petrol.
Since installing the unit I found using the Canadian cell was hopeless due to gas build up reducing the area that was conductive causing the current to drop.
I striped it and modified it with larger holes for both electrolyte in and gas out.
This worked well unit last year when the seals failed on it costing over $600 dollars to replace the air con condencer which corroded through due to electrolyte leaking onto the alloy.

I decided to redesign my own and had a heap of plates laser cut and have been building cells ever since.
The replacement cell has not missed a beat and although they are expensive using quality components stand the test of time.
my fuel economy is around 12% better than the ute in its standard form and my all up weight is just over 2 tons with my gear and equipment and around town i am getting 500 klms per tank which is holding 65 litres of petrol. This is what I normally fill up to from the pump.
Now you might think that these figures dont sound that great but stop start town running every day has given me excellent economy compared to the ute in its original state of 14 litres per 100 klms.

The exhaust is still completely clean and removal of the spark plugs are also completely clean. No carbon and the ute now has done 39,000 klms 37000klms done on hydrogen supplementing through the inlet manifold.
At anytime I cannot get any soot or black residue on my hands from the exhaust in both city or country driving.
I now feel confident that I have the best i can get for current over gas production running the cell typically at 11-12 amps
Feel free if you have any questions and i will do my best to answer them and throw in a few pictures.

regards Tubby
