HHO fuel is a controversial subject pitting the conservative delayers
and deniers against the rest of the right-minded public. HHO fuel
goes by several other different names including oxyhydrogen and
hydroxy. When used in cars, HHO fuel helps an engine to burn more
cleanly, reduce emissions and increase gas mileage much to the chagrin
of those who don't understand how it works.
When water (H2O) is electrolyzed it is cracked into its elemental
components of hydrogen and oxygen loosely bonded (HHO). This HHO
gas is then injected into a vehicle's intake system, where critics
will calculate that it won't work despite all evidence to the contrary
including third party validation, 50 million road miles of testing,
user reports, message boards, and too much scientific methodology
to go into here.
HHO fuel is not new as electrolysis of water has been around for
years. Yull Brown and William A. Rhodes used HHO fuel in water torches
for welding and in contentious patent debates over the Internet
(even when one party was deceased). So, Brown may be gone, but Brown's
gas lives on much to the grin-less chagrin of one Rhodes left by
the roadside in Phoenix somewhere still making a ton of money off
this water torch company.
Even the critical types who do believe in the benefits of HHO fuel
argue about just how it works. Some say it is because of the ionization
of the hydrogen and oxygen bonds. Some say the HHO fuel displaces
some gasoline or diesel fuel thus reducing consumption and emissions.
Some say no, that's not right, its not the displacement that matters.
What matters is the fact that HHO fuel helps gasoline to burn more
cleanly and efficiently.
You see a gasoline-powered engine is only about 28-percent efficient
in converting energy. HHO fuel, the argument goes, helps to increase
this efficiency. Of course a PEM hydrogen fuel cell is about 60
to 80-percent efficient, but that's besides the point. Let's not
confuse hydrogen fuel cell cars here with HHO fuel powered cars
and this would be heresy.
The point is that HHO fuel is real, it works and it is here to
stay. The critics, however, will fade away with the global warming
delayers and deniers and those who say we will never put a man on
