Question about 1993 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

I want to advance my timing a little...for my hydrogen unit.

I installed my own home built HHO unit and it works great, but I know I can do a lot better if I could advance the timing a little. Highway up to 50.9 without any increase whats so ever in temperature.I think tha MAP sensor could do this a little but I'm not familiar with this....yet

You would haqve to turn the distributor to advance the timing to where youn want it to be. it will also raise your rpms just a bit on the car as well so you can see and hear the difference

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.

I resently added a new "Alternative Gas Solutions" hydrogen kit to my 1995 town car. the installation has been checked by two michanics and both say that it is installed properly but. it shows no sign of...


sorry to tell you but most mileage boosters don't work, i have studied these at lenght, even if it worked it takes more energy separate the water into hjydrogen and oxygen than you can recoup in the combustion process since most of the energy will be wasted in heat, your best bet is to lighten the vehile as much as possible, avoid the use of ac at lower speeds, keep the tires well inflated and avoid aggressive driving

Is there any economical feasibility for brown gas generators ?


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.

Car run with water


i assume you are asking how the water add on kit works? basically a reverse osmosis system converting water from h20 to hho 2 parts hydrogen to 1 part oxygen. this is the theory. and a little water will cool the cylinders down and fuel will also cling to it. I dont know if it really works or not. I have seen some older cars rig up a water bottle that sucks a very small amount and car runs better for a while but this is due to the water breaking up carbon in combustion chamber

HHO ISSUES


Hi Brknme,

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.

Please comment back with your response.

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.

I hope this helped somewhat

Hho generator


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...
