Re: got some problems with my hho
The HHO generator uses low DC voltage to produce Hydrogen and Oxygen from water.
Fresh water isn't the best conductor of electricity so an electrolyte of some sort is usually added to the water.
A safety tip: This was probably included with your unit, but it doesn't hurt to cover it again.
Wear safety glasses, good ones.
Dont smoke or have any ignition source while checking the unit. HHO is produced at the optimum ratio for combustion, and by that I mean COMBUSTION. This is the same fuel in the same ratio in that big orange tank the space shuttle rides on. The slightest leak can be dangerous. Be aware of this. Ok?
A side effect of these units is they produce heat. The water gets pretty hot, not boiling, but hot. That would be a way to see if its working.
You haven't described the unit, volume of water and electrolyte used. That would be helpful.
As a rule, if the plates are covered in water, if the electrolyte has been introduced, if it has power then it's working and you won't notice any difference at all.
Unless the unit you got is the super deluxe multi-cell model, the volume of HHO produced per minute is only a small percentage of what the engine is sucking in. It's not going to supercharge your engine. It will however enhance the combustion of the gasoline, making it burn more efficiently while adding some combustion of its own.
Hopefully you kept track of your mileage before instrallation. Keep keeping track of your mileage and compare notes. That's when you'll notice the difference.
That difference will depend on the volume of HHO produced. That depends on the electrolytic agent, volume and temperature of the water.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

HHO does not work. The amount of air the engine sucks in throughout the RPM range is far beyond what any HHO setup can produce. You will lose power and gas mileage because the HHO system pulls energy away from the ignition spark.
Search online for HHO (a do it yourself hydrogen burning accessory for vehicles) On some websites they claim that most of these HHO don't save fuel because of the computer overriding it. They sell tuners of some sort where you can fool the computer that all is working fine but tweak whatever you want to.
Yes, they do produce hydrogen and are easy enough to make.
Newer EFI vehicles with oxygen sensors located at intake as well as exhaust, have to be manipulated to get the full effect of your HHO production... that was a little trickier. I made a pot switchbox to trick the sensor signal to my engine's computer.
An older vehicle with a carburator is another matter... direct HHO into the intake.
Does it increase fuel efficiency? Yes. Any combustable added is gained effeciency.
How much efficiency, is to be determined by your car's performance and your driving habits.
Youtube has some good videos and how-to info if you're interested.
Is it worth "buying" this info? I wouldn't...
I think it should be free! We all want a greener planet.
Need a bit more info about your problem. Just so I know we are talking about the same thing on the same page.
Are you referring to the Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI)?
If so, does the vehicle run? What symptoms are there?
And what HHO issues do you have? These initials usually refer to a Hydrogen/Oxygen generator and the ratio of the volume of gas produced from water ( 2:1 2 parts Hydrogen one part Oxygen). Also the optimum ratio for combustion.
Hi, try to hook up the hho gas hose into a vacuum line of the crank case (with t-connector) NOT directly b4 the turbo. That might help. Its not getting enough vacuum to "pull" the gas from the cell. How much hho production do you get right now? Greetings, ****
the hho generator power and ground does not go to the maf sensor. what you need is a maf /map regulator, but it has no connection with the generator. it is just helpfull by saving gas if a hho generator is installed. If you have o2 sensors in the exhaust pipe, you need a EFIE first!!! more questions, no problem, email@example.com, greetings, ****
dont waste you time try to get your money back . ive worked with many of these and not a single one has made any difference. the volume of hydrogen that the generator produces isnt enough to help in fuel millage the alternator on your car cant put out the amperage required to make the quanty needed. alot of scams going on on this stuff right now. just watch your dollar. but since you have it you might as well try it and find out for yourself. i ssen them in the pcv line T in. and ive also see them just tapped into the air cleaner just above the throttle body. good luck and let me know if it works any better for you...
MAP enhancers usually wont do the trick for long - the computer will learn the adjustment to the MAF and overide within a day or so usually less than a few minutes.
The computer is best altered using an EFIE to adjust the O2 sensor(s), usually adding between .2 and .3 volts to the O2 sensor signals does the trick - each combo of the HHO and car is slightly different - you have to play with it to find your best setting. You only need to alter the signal on the O2 sensors ahead of the cats as they are the ones the computer uses to adjust the fuel.
