    A water-fuelled car is a automobile that is claimed to use water as its fuel or produces fuel from water onboard,
    with no other energy input. Water-fuelled cars have been mentioned in
    newspapers, popular science magazines, local news coverage, and the internet
    (YouTube); at least some of the claims were found to be tied to investment frauds. This
    article focuses on vehicles which purport to extract their energy directly from
    water, a process which would violate the first and/or second law of thermodynamics

    In addition to claims of cars that run exclusively on water, there have also
    been claims that burning hydrogen or oxyhydrogen in addition to petrol or diesel
    fuel increases mileage. Around 1970, Yull Brown developed
    technology which allegedly allows cars to burn fuel more efficiently while
    improving emissions. In
    Brown's design, a hydrogen oxygen mixture (so-called "Brown's Gas") is generated
    by the electrolysis of water, and then fed into the engine through the air
    intake system. Whether the system actually improves emissions or fuel efficiency
    is debated. Similarly, Hydrogen Technology
    Applications claims to be able increase fuel efficiency by bubbling "Aquyen"
    into the fuel tank.

    A number of websites exist promoting the use of oxyhydrogen (often called
    "HHO"), selling plans for do-it-yourself electrolysers or entire kits with the
    promise of large improvements in fuel efficiency. According to a spokesman for
    the American Automobile
    Association, "All of these devices look like they could probably work for
    you, but let me tell you they don't."

Consider getting this info on ADDING Hydrogen power to your fuel. Raises fuel mileage 25% to 50%+.

Imagine if it works - raise your fuel mileage to 21+ in stop n go driving, up tp 35+, maybe 40 mpg with a steady low cruise on the highway, at 60-62 mph.

only costs $170-$200 if you can do it yourself, if you can change pcv / oxygen sensors / plugs / fuel filters, YOU can do it.
Else, pay a mechanic an extra $200 for 2 hours work for him/her to install in 45 minutes.

My 2 cents -

1. You didn't specify your exact model, on this site you'll fond your answer -

2. There are a few ways to do this, here's one -
- Fill your gas tank to the very top.
- Write down your odometer or reset you trip meter.
- Drive your car till it's time to fill it up again.
- When it's time to fill you tank, fill it to the very top (preferd in the same station, in the same pump).
- divide the number of miles (or kilometers) you drive, by the amount of gas you filled, This is of course only true for this gas tank, fuel consumption is effected by many things, load, driver, type of miles you do (city or hoghway), etc..

3. Service your car regularly, make sure tire pressure is correct, don't drive like you are racing.

Good luck,

Is the fuel pump for this truck a two stage pump?

Depends on the year and make of the car. Some are 2 stage some are single stage. Toyotas usually come equipped with a standard single stage. You can buy after market single stage with dual channels for improved pressure under heavy racing. :)

If the car starts each time but wont keep running it sounds like poor fuel delivery. The first thing I would check is fuel pressure and if the fuel filter needs replacing.

High fuel consumption, could it be coolant sensor

I'd be looking at a partially clogged fuel filter first choice. Also check for a possible small fuel line leak. Question for you- when was last "healthy" tune up? A plugged air filter, worn spark plugs and colder weather all contribute to a "high fuel consumption"

Toyota Camry 2004 P0420

well that's if I'm not mistaken, catalyst system efficiency THRESHOLD!!! it is "bank" when your description code explanes bank 1 that is a O 2 sensor anything says BANK is a Oxygen sensor = O 2 sensor.what is it doing shutting off when eng warms up or sputtering or nothing really out of normal behavior? these switches will loose all communication with computer or get stuck in 1 of three ranges each range behave differently! in each range the deal with these are these switches are a part of maintenance usa @ hundred thousand km they should be change for emission efficiency and fuel consumption and vehicle performance usually after 1 is changed 9 times out of 10 shortly after the next bank will produce eng light and so on!! I usually change both while I'm at it you know pay me now or pay me again later but twice as much! well hope this helps you out good luck cheers happy new year.John, Toronto,Ontario

My 89 camry

Use a good fuel injector cleaner every 15k and change your air filter as needed. If it looks clean it is. The most you should be changing the AF is approx. 15 to 20k. Unless you live in a dust bowl or have the only diesel camry I know of. I recommend the use of nitrogen in the tires for improved tire wear and fuel economy.

High gas Consumption

Most definitly that leak is leaning out the motor so the oxy sensor thinks therse not enough fuel and tells the injectors to put more fuel in.All parts of the air box must be leak free.The air filter should be clean and the lid securely fastened.A compression test would tell you the health of the cylinders and wether theyre working efficiently.The lower the compression ratio the less effectivly the fuel is burnt.If you have around 140-150 your engine is in a reasonable condition.
