Ozarks Man Uses Hydrogen to Improve Gas
by Linda Russell, KY3 News
( June 6, 2008 )
BUFFALO, Mo. -- A local man's gadget may help people get
more miles per gallon of gasoline in their vehicles. Ed Hula is
a football coach in Buffalo, and a former science teacher.
A lot of people use their garage to fix a car that has a
problem. Hula has been working in his garage to try to help fix
a worldwide problem: the energy crisis.
“We've got to do something to help one another out, because the
middle and lower class people are really feeling the bite of the
gas prices right now,” said Hula.
So, after a trial and error, and testing a few prototypes on
his own vehicles, Hula came up with what he calls the
“We've got stainless steel plates in here, and when you conduct
electricity through them stainless steel plates, it takes them
molecules -- you got two molecules of hydrogen and one oxygen --
and it takes and separates them into gas,” he said.
Hula says burning the gas created through this process, called
electrolysis, can give your car better gas mileage. He's started
a business and hooked up his generator to about 30 vehicles so
His customers have reported between 28 percent and 72 percent
better gas mileage. Jim Lister is a former mechanic who stands
behind Hula's generator.
“I've only had mine on about 100 miles, but I just checked the
gas mileage this morning and I got 5.1 miles per gallon better
than what I was, plus I have more power,” said Lister.
Hula knows he's not the first to think of hydrogen power for
“I'm telling people, if they want one of these units, to buy
one from me first, copy it, and make your own,” he said.
Rick Hughlett, owner of Rick's Automotive in Springfield, says
the hydrogen-assist generator could work, but the additional
gases in the system could confuse a vehicle's oxygen sensor and
make the car use more gas.
“That oxygen sensor is always trying to find 14.7-to-1 air/fuel
ratio,” said Hughlett.
Hydrogen is highly flammable but Hula says his generator is
just as safe or safer than the gas in your car.
“You can unscrew the lid and drink that water if you want to,”
Hughlett says a backfire or putting it in the wrong spot could
cause the container to explode.
“Any time you're installing something under the hood of a car,
you need to consult a professional,” he said.
Still, Hughlett believes the inventor is on the right track.
“The principle, the idea, is good, and we do need these back
yard inventors, because that may be the one that solves the
energy crisis. But step lightly,” said Hughlett.
“I think everybody in America ought to have one!” said Lister.
Hula is selling his hydrogen-assist generators for $600.

Car Runs On Water
"I'm getting 100 miles to the ounce on water," inventor Anthony
Brown said he shut his fuel injection system down and created
the system that can use any type of water with a small amount of
gas. He said the car is getting just fuel vapor.
"When you separate the water from the oxygen from the hydrogen,
it cooks and it cooks down to a brown," Brown said. "We're not
having any waste product off of it. Everything is consumed and
Local 6 showed video of Brown filling up his vehicle with water
and then driving around.
Brown said any profit he makes from his invention will go
toward helping missionaries around the world.
"I've just been asking for a way, for the Lord to show me to
raise money rapidly and I started to working on this idea,"
A Need Fuels a Gas-Saving Idea
Eddie R. Cole,
Times Staff Writer

ST. PETERSBURG — Dave Hansen thinks he has found a way to cut
the cost of gas in half.
In fact, he said his month-old idea prompted a Tampa Bay
investor to offer him a seven-figure advance for the rights of
his invention. But Hansen turned that offer down.
He said his new hydrogen-supplemental fuel system is not about
fame or fortune, though it doubles a vehicle's mileage per
gallon. It's about fishing.
"After paying about 500 to 600 bucks to catch four or five
trout, I thought there has to be a better way," said the
47-year-old retired business owner who is now a computer
consultant. "My motivation was to go fishing and save money."
The rising cost of fueling his 24-foot Shamrock fishing boat
had become a snag, and it didn't help that his main automobile
for towing his boat was a gas-guzzling 1997 GMC Yukon.
Hansen did some research on alternative ways of powering
vehicle engines and found hydrogen to be an often attempted but
not so successful method.
That's when he started testing how hydrogen would work in his
Yukon. After buying $600 worth of parts for engine modifications
and a month's worth of time, he says the Yukon has gone from 8
miles per gallon in the city and 12.5 on the highway to about 18
in the city and 26 on the highway.
"Now, I don't pay $4 a gallon. I pay $2 a gallon," Hansen said.
"I've got my big truck that I want to keep and I get the same
mileage that you get with a Toyota Camry."
He said engines lose 30 to 40 percent of gasoline energy
through exhaust, but the hydrogen supplement allows his engine
to burn 100 percent of the gasoline.
Hansen added a device to the Yukon that creates hydrogen and
combines it with the oxygen input to the engine, which helps the
motor maximize gasoline performance. His system requires a small
amount of distilled water to power the hydrogen generator and
uses distilled vinegar to keep the generator's plates from
Additional gauges monitor the efficiency of the generator and
help the system work well in Florida summer temperatures.
"The motor now runs cooler and with less carbon buildup, which
ultimately will increase engine life," Hansen said. "The system
has multiple built-in safeguards to make sure that the driver
can operate the vehicle without concern."
Not everyone is sold on the idea.
Lev Gelb, an associate professor of chemistry at Washington
University in St. Louis, who has worked for years on hydrogen
storage, said he is skeptical of Hansen's claim.
"The energy in the battery also comes from the engine, so all
of the energy actually comes from the gasoline," Gelb said.
"This approach can't work because everything is still limited
by the car engine efficiency, so I think that his claim of
nearly doubling the vehicle mileage is bogus."
Hansen said scientists' and car engineers' doubt is relevant
but limited by what they have studied.
"The science is there, but there isn't a focus on existing
vehicles," Hansen said. "Everyone looks at new vehicles to
Albert Rawlins, 75, who recently met Hansen while playing golf,
said he is willing to try a hydrogen fuel system on his 1995
Chevrolet Impala, especially because he still sends gas money to
two daughters living in Ohio.
"If you don't know computers, the best mechanic in the world
can't do this," Rawlins said of his amazement of seeing Hansen's
modified Yukon engine. "I told Dave, 'I'm willing to do this in
order to make a statement' and the first thing I'm doing is
taking a road trip to Ohio."
Even with regular compliments from people like Rawlins, Hansen
said he still isn't sure he wants to pursue a patent and open a
business. Instead, he has posted his findings on his Web site,
htgsystems.com, and he will allow feedback to determine his next
"I'll let the public decide. I'm not doing this to make money.
I just wanted to go fishing, and I thought it was a shame that
nobody was doing anything about this."

Engine Runs With Water
(KAAL) -- Thanks to one local high school senior's invention,
we may one day find relief at the pump.
The Alden Conger senior just received international awards for
It's taken him two years of work, but it's finally here. His
invention could lower your fuel bills by 30%.
He built a battery-powered device that can actually turn water
into energy and lower the amount of gas you need by about 23%.
"It'll lower emissions, clean up the environment, and it will
save you money." (soli)
You may have heard of hydrogen cars. Soli’s invention attaches
to your motor and uses both hydrogen and oxygen for energy.
So far, he's only tested his invention on lawn mower engines
that don't move. He plans to test it on moving engines, and then
He and four friends re-designed the engine and design of a car
so it gets 866 miles to the gallon!
The car isn't safe for the road, but the combination of that
engine, Soli’s invention, and a safer frame could revolutionize
the way we drive.
"I'm feeling great. I didn't know it would get this far. The
project just seemed to get bigger and bigger," says Soli.
Within the last month, he won two international awards and
$2,500 for his work. He says this is only the beginning.
Bob Boyce System Replications Reporting
40-60% mpg Increases
The first closely replicated Bob Boyce Style Electrolyzers are
beginning to report results in the Watercar, Hydroxy, and
Workingwatercar yahoo egroups. Several replicators have
reported 40-60% mpg increases with Bob Boyce and Smack Booster
modified versions of the Bob Boyce System.
Most of these replications are using "brute force" electrolysis
meaning that the three frequency toroidal transformers are not
yet being utilized for maximum gain. One experimenter name
Houston has reported a steady 21 l/min output from his 49 Cell
Boyce System using various wiring options and has reported
40-60% mpg increases.
Several Smack Booster replicators are reporting similar 40-60%
increases in their mpg when using the system as a booster to
their gas fueled engines. These increases require
adjustments to Oxygen sensors in modern cars to compensate for
HHO gas utilization. Many systems will regard the extra O
in the fuel mix as a too lean condition and force more gas fuel
into the engine which negates the gains from using Hydroxy.
This scenario accounts for many reports of no gain at all, to
as little as 10-20% increase in mileage in contrast to the
40-60% mileage increases reported by several. It seems
that fuel/air sensors and electronics are the source of the
variation in performance results. The groups offer
numerous workarounds for these problems.
The upshot of all these things, is that the Water Car era seems
to be upon us. At least the "Do It Yourself"-ers have
found significant answers for themselves in these groups.
Businesses are emerging from the forums as DIYers offer
assistance to one another with various parts of the systems to
which their particular expertise gives rise. The situation
is not unlike the early stages of the personal computer
Thanks to PESN's coverage, inquiries and new group members are
arriving daily from around the world into these forums.
Successful replications are being report as often. Though
a complete Boyce replication with 60-101 cells and three phase
pulsing has not yet been tested and reported; there are a number
of people nearing that point.
By comparison one might liken the current stage as the Computer
Kit stage with only a couple complete turnkey systems
available. Lets call it the pre-Apple stage. Good
thing oil is useful for other things besides production of
gasoline, otherwise one might want to divest oneself of
investments in oil even though its current price is $100 a
barrel. One last push for profits from a (thankfully)
dying gasoline industry, buggy whips anyone?
Bob recently revealed in posts to a yahoo watercar egroup that
his system uses sequence relaxation and phase tweaking to
control hydroxy production volume. Though the result of
this looks like frequency shifting to a frequency counter; that
is only because of the lack of pulses during the relaxation part
of the wave forms. You might think of it as burst
frequency modulation instead of frequency modulation.
The phase tweaking adjusts the relationship of the three
frequencies to "fine tune". Bob also detailed the method
of setup for initial tuning after which little adjustment is
need. Here is the quote...
My favorite implementation was to use pressure transducer
output to vary the relaxation delay between pulse string
sequences. If looked at on a frequency counter, it would look as
though the frequencies of all 3 channels were being changed, but
that is only because a frequency counter counts pulses over a
set period of time. The pulse streams out of a HexController has
series of pulses that are in fixed relation to one another with
fixed intervals. Once a cell stack is tuned to "frequency",
which is actually a specific pulse train timing, that timing
changes very little, and only in response to electrolyte
The pulse durations are hardly ever changed once they are
locked onto optimum for a given cell stack system.
The timing of each series of pulse sequences results in
predefined sets of pulse intervals within each sequence, and a
delay between sequences. These relaxation times can be adjusted
slightly to vary production. This is MUCH more effective at
varying production than varying pulse width without wasting
power. So we can look at it as slight variations in phase
between the individual phases within a pulse sequence, which I
called "twist", and larger opportunities of missing pulse time
(relaxation time) between pulse sequence sets.
I hope I'm not confusing anyone here, please try to bear with
me. i am not always very good at explaining things in ways that
everyone can understand.
Frequency is set by not having any phase shift (twist) or
sequence delays (relaxation time) set, and tuning the unit
timing for maximum production at the least power consumption.
After timing is set, then the sensors can be brought online. The
temperature sensor provides feedback to adjust pulse timing (not
pulse duration) slightly. This can compensate for density
changes in the electrolyte.
With any given jump in pulse timing due to temperature
compensation, we can fine tune operation for that given timing
by adjusting the phase twist slightly. So we really want to
leave that variable alone, and use it solely as a means of "fine
tuning" for operational changes due to temperature and
Relaxation time between pulse sequences can be adjusted to
control volume of hydroxy gas production on the fly. This can
use pressure, flow, and demand (throttle position) all as inputs
to determine optimum hydroxy gas production levels.
I should also add... Anyone looking at a frequency counter
would mistakenly assume that frequency is changing while
adjusting the relaxation time, when really what is changing is
the space between sequences, and to a much lesser degree the
phase relationship between the 3 channels. (Ref.)
Frank Chahyadi : Hyfuel Generator
Turning to Water to Save Fuel
Franky Chahyadi's motorbike used to travel between 30 and 35
kilometers on one liter of premium fuel. But since he started
using an electrolyzer, a liter of premium fuel can keep his
motorbike going for 50 to 55 kilometers. And it's not just his
motorbike; his Mercedes C18 is also performing more
Before, a liter of fuel was just enough to travel five
kilometers, but with an electrolyzer, his Mercedes travels nine.
In 2006, after undertaking numerous tests, Joko found a simple
way to separate the hydrogen and oxygen in water and channel the
hydrogen to the engine. This can save between 70 and 100 percent
of fuel used in motor vehicles.
The shape of the device is quite simple. A coil is wrapped
around a plastic soy sauce bottle and is used to transmit an
electric current beneath the bottle. The coil is connected to
the battery. A pipe is attached to the top of the bottle to
connect the engine to the carburetor.
"When the engine is running, it will automatically produce
hydrogen and this causes an explosion in the engine," Joko said.
"The chemical formula for water is H2O. If this is subjected to
an electric current, it will produce H2 and O2," Joko said.
About five seconds after the electric current, gas bubbles out
of the water. After the gas has been channeled to the trial
engine, it explodes and can drive the crankshaft five meters or
"This is just from using one piston. If we use three pistons to
drive the crankshaft, it can break," Joko said. He chose a
transparent soy sauce bottle because it was cheap, easy to find
"The transparency can help us check the water's condition and
whether or not it is still clear," Joko said.
In order to produce good hydrogen, the water should be neutral
or rainwater, and it only needs to be changed once a month. The
use of tap water can cause problems because it includes other
substances that inhibit the production of hydrogen. Joko
installed the electrolyzer in his car. Joko said burning
hydrogen was good and its octane rating reached 130. This
compares with the rating of premium fuel, which is only in the
80s, and Pertamax, with a rating of 94. With the electrolyzer,
the burning of fuel is more efficient and the power of the
engine is stronger, he said. He said the more efficient burning
decreases carbon emissions. Oil use also becomes more
economical. It is cleaner because it partly emits water in place
"Consequently, water will always come out of vehicles with
electrolyzers. When the engine is used for the first time in the
morning, the system expels water," Joko said.
To replace the raw materials used for installation in a
motorcycle, the customer is charged Rp 75,000 (US$8) for
motorbikes and Rp 150,000 for cars.
"This is not about profit. The money being charged is only used
to buy the components," said Joko, adding more than 1,000
vehicles have used his invention.
Since he has no commercial interest, Joko said he did not want
to patent his invention. He hopes people will make the device
themselves since its construction is simple and the materials
easy to find. Joko is further innovating in trying to develop an
engine that uses water as its fuel. He has changed the working
mechanisms of a lawn mower engine so the machine can only use
exploding hydrogen and not fuel.
"Using 10 soy sauce bottles each containing 0.5 liters of
water, the lawn mower engine keeps running," he said. "I want to
try this on my motorcycle just using water."
Joko believes the fuel crisis will be solved with the creation
of a water-powered engine.

Dingel’s Water-Powered Car Offered for AFP
Federico D. Pascual Jr.
HERE we go again!
We finally saw again inventor Daniel D. Dingel after about a
year of having sort of drifted away from each other. He was at
the ABS-CBN trying to win converts to his hydrocar that,
according to his fantastic claim, runs on nothing but water!
Dingel was being interviewed in the "Bantay Kalikasan" program
over DZMM by media environmentalist Bong Faustino together with
Rudy Lantano, who was discussing on phone patch his concoction
of gasoline mixed with alcohol to make it cheaper and
With the way Dingel and his troupe reacted when I walked into
the DZMM booth, I doubt if he had any inkling that he was to see
my shadow again that day -- particularly at a time when he is
making a sales pitch.
Without telling him, Bong invited me to sit with Dingel, I
sensed, to balance his presentation.
WITH the previous program "Jeepney ni Erap" anchored by Korina
Sanchez having eaten into Bong’s time slot and with his loads of
ads to shoot down the listener’s ear, I lost no time in driving
home my main point.
Sitting across the desk from Dingel, I reiterated my old
challenge to him: If it is true that his car runs on nothing but
water, let’s prove it to the whole world by driving it in a
supervised 1,000-kilometer demonstration cruise up and down the
South Luzon Expressway, from Magallanes to Calamba and back.
I made this suggestion last year, because of lingering
suspicion that Dingel’s red Toyota Corolla (UGA 222) still
secretly uses gasoline aside from his electrolysis gadget that
produces hydrogen gas to feed into his engine.
Even granting it has a secret gas tank, the gasoline (or
whatever extra fuel it is) would run out in 1,000 kilometers and
reduce the car to exclusive dependence on the water fuel used by
SUCH suspicion of a secret extra fuel is not without basis. At
some demonstrations, some engineers checked the exhaust and
sniffed the smoke coming out. It smelled of gasoline fumes!
At the Department of Science and Technology, scientists went
beyond their noses and actually subjected the emission to
scientific tests. They reported traces of carbon oxides, the
type one would find in burned gasoline.
Water is two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen, nothing more,
nothing less. Where did the carbon oxides (oxidized or burned
carbon) come from?
To cut short the endless debate about a secret gas tank, we
asked Dingel last year, and we repeated the suggested yesterday
on the air, that we take the car on a 1,000-km run, continuously
feeding it nothing but water.
DINGEL refused, worrying aloud about the monumental security
problem involved in having him and the monitors driving up and
down the expressway exposed to the world.
Maybe he had a point. Although he is thousands of miles from
Sulu, who knows the naughty Abu Sayyaf might just plant a land
mind in his tracks nga naman! Or some Lost Command might hijack
him and his precious invention!
At that point I was hoping the gods of ABS-CBN would come
rushing through the door to assure Dingel that if he would agree
to such a road test, they would guarantee his safety and that of
IF I owned ABS-CBN, I would make such an offer to settle the
issue once and for all.
Imagine the media scoop, the spectacle: Dingel’s red hydrocar
cruising down the expressway accompanied by a mean-looking
security phalanx and the network’s Radyo Patrol reporting live a
kilometer-per-kilometer report on the progress of the road test.
President Estrada, besieged as he is with price issues, would
do well to order the presidential security unit to help protect
the car that might yet free us from the clutches of the oil
cartel. During the run, it won’t hurt if Press Secretary Dong
Puno, an ABS-CBN alumnus, slips in a Dingel paragraph or two in
his news briefing.
The other media won’t be able to ignore the event. Advertisers
would scramble to get into the bandwagon. Mother Lily might sign
a contract for exclusive rights to the life story of Dingel. The
possibilities are endless!
BUT Bong Faustino does not own ABS-CBN and could not commit,
right then and there, the attention and the resources of the
giant network. So Dingel got away, again, with that lame excuse
of lack of security.
The truth is that Dingel never looked like he had a security
problem. During those times when he would still talk to me
because I was writing about him and his gadget, we would meet at
the McDonald’s at BF Homes in Parañaque and chat endlessly while
his car is parked blatantly in front of the burgerhouse.
On some occasions, we would even leave his car in the McDo
parking lot and use my van to go some place. We had no guard for
the car or for his person. Nobody touched his Corolla.
The car is an easy target, even for amateurs. It has markings
all over its body announcing that it is Dingel’s water-powered
When I saw the car again yesterday at ABS-CBN, it was still the
same demo unit. And Dingel was still the same salesman with the
same spiel about fantastic dollar offers from some foreign
entities scrambling to get first crack at his revolutionary
ASIDE from one ever faithful sidekick whose name I cannot now
recall, there is now a small coterie of new converts who look
like businessmen smelling of snake oil.
While Dingel was demonstrating his hydrogen-loaded popgun
shooting a canister with a loud bang into the air, one of his
new devotees told us that their group has convinced somebody in
Malacañang, somebody surnamed De Guzman, to have the armed
forces adopt the Dingel invention into their motor vehicles and
As a taxpayer, I should have butted in with "Teka muna!" -- but
what the heck. If our countrymen cannot have peace, jobs and
food, they can use some entertainment.
WHILE Dingel was demonstrating his hydrogen popgun in the
ABS-CBN parking lot, this businessman who told me about the
armed forces deal was trying to explain to me how the hydrocar
I did not have the heart to tell him that I’ve been there
before him. But when he kept referring to Dingel’s device as a
"nuclear reactor," I simply had to react.
I pointedly told him that the demo car did not have a nuclear
reactor. I had to explain to him what a nuclear reactor was and
that Dingel’s contraption did not touch the nuclei of the
hydrogen and the oxygen taken from the water.
This is a simple case of electrolysis, I said, the type of
experiment we did in high school science class. An electric
current is passed through the water and the water is broken up
into its hydrogen and oxygen components.
IN the case of Dingel, he feeds the resulting hydrogen and
oxygen into the combustion chamber of the retooled Toyota
engine. With the spark plugs triggered, the gaseous mixture
explodes, sending the pistons moving and the shafts turning as
in a conventional car.
The difference is that instead of the vaporized gasoline-air
mixture in a regular car, Dingel uses hydrogen with traces of
oxygen. He gets the explosive hydrogen and the combustible
oxygen directly from the electrolysis done with his device.
In many similar experiments and inventions in Europe and the
United States, they first store the hydrogen gas generated and
feed it into the engine as needed. Dingel pipes it directly from
the electrolysis process into the engine without storing it
ONE of the sources of doubt on the part of DOST scientists is
Dingel’s using an ordinary 12-volt car battery to initiate and
continue the process of generating hydrogen gas under the hood.
Dingel displays a certification that he uses only 5 amperes to
do that, whereas many incredulous engineers say we need more
than a thousand times that to accomplish the same work.
They also cite the law of thermodynamics saying in effect that
we cannot create matter or energy. They cannot accept that
Dingel, with an input of only 12 volts, can generate an output
of enormous energy to run a regular combustion engine. How did
he create that much energy, they ask.
That’s when they slip in the suggestion that he is probably
also using gasoline from a secret tank.
THIS brings us back to our ultimate test: Let’s just run the
car for 1,000 kms. on nothing but water, stopping briefly every
100 kilometers to check its vital signs. If there is some other
fuel secretly being fed into it, as its critics allege, this
hidden fuel should run out in 1,000 kms.
The big question is why Dingel is scared of a public test that
will, theoretically, prove precisely his point that it’s just
water running his car.

Fuel From Water Becoming Reality Says Kiwi
Imagine watering the garden, then turning the hose into your
petrol tank and filling up the car.
It has been a holy grail for an age, a water-based fuel. Well,
that technology may already be here, claims small Kiwi company
But scientists remain sceptical and say an engine running on
water defies the laws of physics.
Bios Fuel began with a concept in 1996, as founder Steve Ryan
was tinkering with an old motorbike engine in an Auckland
He started to believe that burning the hydrogen contained in
water in a combustion engine was not just science fiction.
In 2002 he left a finance career to focus on researching the
Two years ago Mr Ryan went public, running a 350cc motorbike on
water for the 60 Minutes television show.
Now Bios Fuel is preparing to drive 3000 kilometres from Darwin
to Adelaide on a blend of waste oil and water, as part of the
Panasonic World Solar Challenge.
Mr Ryan says the water-based fuel allows hydrogen to be housed
safely in water and released.
It is blended with waste oil for lubrication and a bonding
agent, but the power comes from the water.
Waikato University senior engineering lecturer Mike Duke is
deeply sceptical of the claims.
He says the problem is that the amount of energy needed to
extract energy from water is greater than the energy produced.
There was "a lot of pseudo science out there," Dr Duke said.
"They're claiming something that I don't buy, but if they can
prove it to me, then I'll buy them a beer."
But Mr Ryan says the fuel runs via a normal combustion system -
it's the delivery system that is the key and must remain under
The Solar Challenge will demonstrate the potential of
alternative fuel technology to operate in an extreme
environment, says company spokesman Cam Feast.
"It gives us the opportunity to show that recycling second- and
third-generation waste is an option when emulsified with water."
A battered old 1989 Land Cruiser with 400,000 kilometres on the
clock will be used for the challenge.
The implications of water-based fuels are huge, he says.
"Water doesn't have to be spring-fed, it can be waste water,
from your shower or sink, rainwater from the gutter, or
Diesel engines can be run on very high percentages of water and
small amounts of waste oil for lubrication. It requires no
electricity, no heat, and emissions consist mainly of water
So why isn't this technology already on the shelf?
Mr Ryan says scepticism from the scientific community and the
public remains the main barrier to water-fuel technology.
He says there has been more support from the United States, and
that is where Bio Fuels will focus its efforts.
"New Zealand will still be the home base, but there's a need to
go where the market is."

This is what I have seen over the past four months, sorry the

DO NOT use any of the wire and glass jar units.
What every unit you get if they do not tell you to control the

did not tell you correctly.
NEVER NEVER set it up to turn on any other way BUT so it comes

I know of three cases where this was NOT done, one burst his

was lucky his battery was dead that morning as his ran as long
as the battery was able to power it, one spark and good by
Many cells start making gas within seconds and it can fill the

NEVER NEVER hook it up to any engine vacuum.
The Fuel pump relay is the only way to go.
IF there is no fuel pump relay (like Toyota) use the oil
I feel this is so important I will give the design away.

Local man runs generator on tap water
EUREKA SPRINGS -- Are the high prices of fuel
getting to you??Do you cringe whenever you pull up to the pumps,
or when the electric bill arrives in the mail?
If the answer is yes, it's a safe bet most Americans share
But Jeff Falk has a different way of dealing with the current
The generator in his shop runs on tap water.
"This is a technology that goes against the grain of world
economics, from the point of view of the oil companies," said
Falk, whose has designed and built everything from race cars
to aircraft to speed boats. "Anybody who really thinks the
government is going to embrace this is probably wrong. They'd
probably lock you up first."
Nonetheless, Falk has done it. Starting five years ago after
he read about it, he has built an electricity producing
generator that runs on hydrogen rather than fossil fuels.
Hydrogen safer than you think
"There is a lot of propaganda about how dangerous hydrogen
is," Falk said. "Not true. You can't approach it like fossil
fuels, there are different rules. Unlike fossil fuels, which
are heavier than air and pool, creating potential explosive
hazards, hydrogen is the lightest element there is. It
disperses. It will go right through the ceiling if you don't
Falk points out another vital distinction between hydrogen
and fossil fuels.
"Burning hydrogen produces no radiant heat," he said. "It's
the hydrocarbon emissions from burning gasoline, for instance,
that burn you if you get in its way. The hydrocarbon emissions
are also the source of its pollution."
Falk uses high-frequency DC/AC hybrid pulsed electrolyzers to
separate the hydrogen and oxygen from ordinary tap water.
An electrolyzer runs a current through the water, splitting
the H2O molecules into hydrogen and oxygen.
Anyone can electrolyze
Many will remember the familiar high school science
experiment where wires are attached to any two-poled battery,
then into two water-filled containers. As the current splits
the molecules, one bottle will fill with oxygen, the other
This is a little more complex.
Falk's electrolyzers do the same thing, using a small
current, high frequency and high voltages to initiate the
Once the electrolyzer begins producing hydrogen, the
generator produces enough power to fuel itself and more.
Because hydrogen burns so quickly, steam is channeled to slow
down the burn.
"You couldn't run appliances off this generator at this
point," Falk said. "The amperage is too low. But I'm refining
it. My goal it to have the power company come out and remove
their pole and then go away, because I won't need them
For every .75 amps going into the generator, 22 come out.
Falk said ideally two generators would be needed, so that one
could be serviced from time to time.
Dinosaur snot unattractive fuel source
"Why do we want to keep pumping dinosaur snot out of the
ground and burning it?" Falk asked. "How primitive can you
get? Why don't we just leave the rest of it in the ground
until we can find something better to do with it than that?"
Falk speculated units sufficient to power home use could be
mass produced for about $7,500 each.
"Look at this," Falk said, holding a temperature sensor near
the generator's exhaust. "Right now the exhaust is 228
degrees. If this were a gasoline generator, the temperature
would be more like 800 degrees."
Falk said the his model generator uses about a pint of water
an hour to produce 7,500 watts of electricity.
"Most of this equipment I got off the Internet, the parts and
the info on how to do it," Falk said. "Eventually I can get
off the grid without having to live by candlelight, and save
In addition to the water-powered generator, Falk is working
on an improved, highly efficient solar panel design which he
expects to have up and running shortly.
