If you have an internal combustion engine, you already use Hydrogen and it would not work without it.

Gasoline or Petrol is a complex chain of over 500 Hydrocarbon molecules. In the right conditions underground, there is a Carbon molecule that binds with a Hydrogen molecule and with a few hundred thousand years passing it ends up forming oil. After we pump it up and refine it we get the fuel we put into our car tanks.

About half of these 500 molecules are more simple and can be burned at temperatures of 200 degrees. The other half burn when there is about 400 degrees. When your spark plug fires up, it starts to ignite the 200 degree molecules which in turn start to ignite the 400 degree molecules. The problem is that by the time they start to do this the power stroke of your piston has mostly finished. These molecules either continue to burn in your exhaust, or they remain unburned as hydrocarbons that go out your tail pipe.

Introducing a supply of Hydrogen gas into the combustion chamber simply helps to ignite the 400 degree molecules within the cylinder at a time when it helps to push the piston down. If you start burning all the fuel within the cylinder you get more power and end up using less fuel to travel the same distance.

If your engine is not able to handle the complete burning of all your fuel you would have a problem that needs repairing regardless of if you use Hydrogen or not.

If you are wondering about cars that use 100% Hydrogen, this is OK as long as the combustion timing is adjusted for the gas with a lower flashpoint. Keep in mind this is assuming you are able to get sufficient volumes of the gas in the first place. Unless you convert to a compressed hydrogen gas tank, this is not usually a viable option for people building HHO generators.

Incidentally, underground volcanic activity liberates the molecules with the extreme heat. When it cools they are able to form - Hydrogen binding with Carbon forms Hydrocarbons (oil) - And get this, when a carbon molecule binds with another carbon molecule it forms a chrystal that keeps developing with the right tremendous underground pressure and molecules - This is how Diamonds are formed
