SO! What is HHO?

HHO gas is the product of electrolysis on H2O or pure water. Two individual hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. The actual chemical composition is H2 H2 O2. As each water molecule consists of two hydrogen and one oxygen atom two water molecules are required to complete the formula. The O1 from the first atom is an unstable free radical which reacts with the second oxygen atom from molecule two to form dioxygen, O2. The most common name of HHO gas is oxyhydrogen.

Electrolysis: 2 H2O → 2 H2 + O2

HHO-Electrolyses
Oxyhydrogen Flame

  Hydrogen Gasoline
combustive 6 times greater 6 times weeker
weight much lighter, rises to ceeling quickly stays around source and expands slowly
tempurature close up Can almost touch flame within a cm or two with no radiant heat. Very warm at a considerable distance, burns when close.
flamible distance one inch or less but very hard to reach levels of ignition once released into the air several feet from source.
known dilution principles when HHO is released into the air it mixes with Nitrogen and becomes harmless breathable air. only with special chemicals or absorbent products
Efficiency burns at 100% 35-45%

Why use gasoline and HHO together? If it's so good why don't we use 100% HHO? Why haven't I heard more about this?

The purpose of using oxyhydrogen gas in conjunction with gasoline is to increase the automotives overall efficiency with the current automotive engine design available to the consumer today. Many I have talked to believe the goal is to produce as much HHO as they are capable of designing a system to produce so the car uses as little gasoline as possible. This is false and it can be very dangerous especially if you are trying to store the gas to use later. Stored HHO is being used in GM's new Hum V and Japan has announced a stored HHO car with 150 fill stations in Japan expected in 2015. These storage methods are very advanced to protect the passangers. High pressure storage in containers available to the public is not recomend. The only systems this website will comment on in a positive way are what is referred to as "on-demand HHO systems". Meaning the gas is used instantly as it is being created. Stored oxyhydrogen gas will result in a hydrogen bomb if not carefully protected and cared for. Not like what the US Military used on Japan. The military uses a different technology called hydrogen fusion (combining atoms) and fission (splitting atoms). HHO automotive systems simply use electrolysis to separate the hydrogen from the oxygen which changes to gas and then the emition is condensation after passing through the engin, there is no splitting or combining. The cycle is water to gas, gas to fire, steam to condensation and then back to water form making HHO 100% efficiant. The big boom comes from taking this technology deeper on an atomic level which you would need materials that are not easily found and will not be mentioned on this site. Regarding the amount of HHO needed, if the maker of an automotive HHO system concentrates on producing as much brown gas as possible you will be forgetting the secondary factor in your cars ability to run long term aside from the fuel. The more brown gas means the more power to create that gas which means energy from the battery for electrolysis and in return a much shorter battery life if your gas creation exceeds your batters recycle ability. If your battery runs out of stored electricity your car will turn off and you will be left on the side of the road. You might get amazing gas mileage but your towing bill would make up for what your gas bill lacks. Currently the market standard for an automotive running on gasoline alone is 35-40% efficient. The combustion rate of oxyhydrogen gas is 6 times greater than gasoline and it is 100% efficient meaning all of the gas is burned with nothing left over to discard. The goal is to use the better to make the lesser more affordable while creating a balance for the amount of energy your alternator can put back into the battery. This is what we are dealing with until our dealerships are filled with cars that will make our air cleaner and our world a better place. It shouldn't be to many more years atleast not for the world. The US ... who knows?

There is currently a car on the market that has changed the worlds view on brown gas and it's not a Hummer. This prototype is the primary reason so many more are aware of HHO today. The Japanese already have a oxyhydrogen car that runs on 100% water or anything that is primarily water based such as rain or even a glass of tea (Click here to check it out - 100% oxyhydrogen car). After the water is used in this cars system there is sediment left to clean up if the water is not pure making the ideal fuel for this HHO system distilled water mixed with an electrolyte solution but it will run from water alone. This companies current goal is to patent and sell the design to a manufacturer for mass production.

For the US the military Hydrogen Hum V's from GM are the first step in the American people having the ability to say, "hey wait!!! where is ours???". That's right, oh wait the best part, the first Hydrogen Hummer released to the a non military person went to Arnold Schwarzenegger. After he gave the bratwurst of approval the military placed a large order . wait for it wait for it ok now WHERE IS OURS??? If Arnold can drive a custom build hydrogen car from GM why can't we buy a factory built hydrogen cell from AutoZone when we can make one with parts from a local hardware store. GM says "this technology has not yet been fully perfected, we are giving this car to Arnold to test for us " right because the 20,000 average Americans AKA beta testers posting videos of success on Youtube with DIY designs just isn't enough to put something on the shelf for the WORLD to benefit from. Arnold currently owns a wide range of Hummer models but is no longer allowed to drive them in CA because of the emissions laws and the excessive pollution diesel hummers emit. I guess GM felt bad Arnold can't take up 2 parking spaces in the state he governs anymore? If you have a better answer email me.

So why do you hear so much about combining HHO and Gasoline instead of 100% like the Japanese or Arnolds Hum V? The simple answer is the engine design that is currently in our cars on the US car lots and in our driveways today. Our engines are made for the combustion rate of gasoline from fossil fuel. With HHO being 6 times more combustible the engine would need to be redesigned to compensate for the increased combustion rate. With the US economy as well as most of the world being kept alive by fossil fuel consumption it is my opinion we will not see General Motors make an attempt to put a new engine design on the market using HHO anytime soon. A better world with cleaner air does not constitute an economic crash for the country and a much lower paycheck for the GM reps themselves. In fact if you do a search of GM's website for HHO you get an error message saying, "the search terms you entered have rendered zero results". What frightens me is that in the short time I have been aware of the capabilities and potential of HHO in cars, I have seen very informative websites and videos online disappear when I revisit with a message saying "account terminated". My big question to you as a reader is, at what point does ones involvement by pushing for the progression of HHO automotive systems become a dangerous industry to take part, at what point is it worth the risks and who will know if this website is taken down and I don't show up for pool night on Thursdays? The more I learn about HHO the more I believe it is everything it is said to be and the more afraid I becoming for knowing it works as well as it does. However, I am not going to be the one to put the system in your car if you hire us. I just make the site and do the photos and video for Brandon. He has a degree in automotive engineering with the experience and training to install a top of the line HHO system to help you save on your gas bill while making the world better one engine at a time. If there's one company in the US you can't talk bad about and you cant deny their website's ability to inform on what is discovered it is NASA. The following link is a direct page link on the Nasa.gov's website. This link has been firm for several months since I first read the PDF file. You do need adobe acrobat or a general PDF reader to access this document.

HHO gas is used as the short or slang term for oxyhydrogen/brown gas among the online community. Many online videos use the term HHO when demonstrating their electrolysis devices for improving car performance as we have done. The design currently on the videos section of our website is not the design we would use in a car. It will work but it produces to much HHO and uses to much electricity. We built this system to demonstrate the general principles, materials and design skills needed to create oxyhydrogen gas.

We have placed this video on our page to educate our site viewers about HHO gas and the positive effects it has on our cars and our way of life. HHO is a beautiful gift we have been given to do good things that will benefit the world over. Tell others about what you have learned, about cleaner air, longer lasting, more fuel efficient better running automobiles. While this gas is wonderful there is also something very dangerous about this resource becoming more well known and more widely used. Remember oil profits are what keep our economy stable. If everyone were to all at once start putting HHO in their cars the need for oil based fuels would drop causing our economy to crash hard. We need to help our government work towards making HHO a part of our economic growth while implementing it slowly. The issue at hand is that we need a start point and an expected goal completion date. At this time we do not have either that I am aware of.
