Water For Gas - HHO Conversion Kit or DIY Hydrogen Generator - Which Way is The Best?
When it comes to increasing your gas mileage, you can't go wrong with a hydrogen generator that turns your car into a water burning hybrid. But does a home built hydrogen generator work as well as an HHO conversion kit?
The first thing we must look at is the price. A hydrogen generator kit sells for $1000 and up. A home made DIY hydrogen generator can be built for $65.
Both produce HHO and the home made version can be adapted in the way the current is applied and the rate at which the hydrogen gas is produced to match the output of the commercially available kit.
So, they work equally well and one can be built at a fraction of the cost. The next question is safety.
The most popular home built hydrogen generator uses baking soda as an electrolyte. The producers of the expensive hydrogen generator kits (or more accurately one company in particular) have made the claim that this type of generator produces carbon monoxide gas and is "lethal junk".
Bold claims to be sure. But is this accurate or purely economically driven to discredit the competition. I built my own hydrogen generator and have been very pleased with the performance but I needed to know the truth.
People will say anything when it comes to money; they will even lie. I decided to write to the president of the company who had put out an article warning people that building their own hydrogen generators could kill them.
Serious statements like this need to be backed up by serious validated data and statistics. I requested such information from this company and the answer I got to my questions and concerns were: "ask any high school chemistry teacher".
What? No data, no numbers of people harmed by home built hydrogen generators? No scientific data by independent testing facilities? Just this guy's statement followed up by: "ask a high school chemistry teacher?"
So, I went a different route. First, I had my hydrogen generator tested for carbon monoxide production by a licensed technician. Result, no measurable amount of CO produced.
Second, I contacted a researcher from Gulf Laboratories who has studied and developed this technology for more than 25 years and he said the president of this company made "claims that were irresponsible and laughably ridiculous".
I then wrote to the person who wrote the top selling do it yourself guide and forwarded a copy of the article claiming that he was "peddling lethal junk to innocent people".
He said he was aware of the article and that it was so full of mistakes and untruths that it was obvious unsubstantiated ranting. He said he was an actual scientist and that CO is not produced from baking soda and even if it was, a teaspoon mixed in a quart size jar could not produce enough to harm anyone.
Not to mention the fact that the mixture is in a sealed container and located under the hood of your car basically making it impossible to collect any CO at all. But the fact remains the system does not even produce CO.
Back to the president of the company selling the expensive hydrogen generator kit: The president of this company backed up his claims that home made hydrogen generators were lethal by telling me to ask a high school chemistry teacher. I had written back to him with actual research done by actual scientist and independent laboratories and said he needed to provide proof the system was dangerous and that he had leveled serious accusations at otherwise reputable people and I hoped he had something to back up these claims.
His response: "Direct any further correspondence to my lawyer". Enough said. These statements that my home built hydrogen generator was dangerous were made for economical reasons to discredit his competition and play on people's fears. Shame on you Mister President. We already have enough people lying to us and prying money out of our pockets.
Want to build one yourself? Of course you do! I have a guide at my website that will show you, step by step how to make this hydrogen generator to use water for gas. It's freakin awesome and works like a charm! Go to http://www.MylaMadson.com/hybrid or Water For Gas
