1st thing to check is the electrolyte: Use white vinegar, NOT baking soda or lye. Use a minimum of 12 ga wire on all connections, and power the generator through a relay using a 30A fuse to feed a 40A relay.Install a Tap-a-line connector from the radio circuit of the fuse panel to the toggle switch, then run a 14ga wire from the toggle switch to the relay. Doing this ensures that the generator is energized ON LY when the ignition switch is turned on. The 12ga feed wire to the relay should connect directly to the positive terminal on the battery. The 14ga wire from the switch is used only to activate the relay. This way the relay carries the amperage to the generator, and it does not pass through the switch. If the amperage is still too high, use less vinegar and use more steam distilled water to lessen the concentration, therefore lowering the amperage draw. All the parts required for this hook-up can be obtained at AutoZone, Oreilly's, etc. Good luck.

1994 dodge caravan se 15 amp ignitation off fusedraw still draws 00.04 amps


Milli-amps is the measure for draw of the computer memory, clock, and radio pre-sets. So, .04 amps is just a little more. Would that be like what a glove box light might draw? Try either pulling a few fuses and see if you still have a draw, or take the battery negative post off overnight, and see if battery is still good and hot the next day.
Good luck.

1988 Chev half ton kills battery. Put in new battery and starts right away. Ran it for about 20min then shut it off. Tried to restart and battery is completely dead. Needs boost to restart.


Have your starting system checked for starter draw.If the starter is drawing to many amps it will draw the battery down very quickly.Also have your charging system load tested to make sure the alternator is charging properly.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Hho no mpg increase on turbo diesel


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, ****

HHO GENERATOR


Please do some research before bothering with this bogus junk.  I am familiar with its generation and you cannot fit a generator under any hood that will produce enough gas to change your engine characteristics.
Take some time and look at the EPA's results with any of the claimed results for various gadgets:
EPA Fuel Saver reports  
Also, if you had a product to sell, wouldn't you be tempted to plant favorable 'test reports' all over the Internet?

HHO generator wiring


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, hydrotuning@gmail.com, greetings, ****
