I ran into this article on how to build yourself a cheap hydrogen power module for your car. It removes hydrogen from watter molocules and pumps it into your air filter. Check out the article it is very interetsing. Tell me what you guys think. I am really thinking about building this thing.

Question:
1. When pumping hydrogen into the air intake of our cars, will the ECU automatically lower the fuel-air ratio and save gass, or is this just BS, or for that matter does it save gas a totally different way.

All comments welcomed, this is very interesting to me and with gass prices where they are now this would rock for all you DIY guys.

I am all for alternative fuels. I think hydrogen is our best bet, however, it is highly corrosive. I would think you would have to coat many parts of your engine. I would not advise this on your average sr20.

Did he recommend this, I didn't have time to read it all?

It isn't spicific for any car, so he didn't mention the sr20de in there, but i was just wondering how well something like this would really work. Also realized that hydrogen will burn quicker and you will thus have to retard your timeing(i think).

Also would the hydrogen gas eat away at the insides of our engines? Come guys(and girls) this is really interesting stuff, well at least to me

Yes, this is what I was saying before, and why I wouldn't recommend it. Yes, it's a great idea. But hydrogen is highly corrosive when it comes in contact with metals. This was one major reason why you will not see vehicles that actually burn hydrogen. Extensive amounts of coatings must be used to combat this process.

Rather, you will see vehicles that use the electricity that is created when converting hydrogen to water to power an electric motor. God, I really need to cut down on these engineering classes
