Laws of Thermodynamics and HHO Gas
Academic critics (those who have never tried an HHO generator)
will argue theoretically that based upon the laws of thermodynamics
an oxyhydrogen device simply cannot work. Some of these critics
may quote the first law of thermodynamics while others quote the
These so-called academics are more interested in verbal sparring
than they are at getting at the truth of "indisputable visual
evidence" that HHO generators do indeed work. But, let's humor
the critics for a moment. The critics have made their argument about
the laws of thermodynamics loudly for years, which has had a stalling
effect on the HHO industry.
According to the first law of thermodynamic, energy may neither
be created nor destroyed. Energy can change from one form to another,
but the total amount of energy in the universe remains constant.
According to the second law of thermodynamics, "... in all
energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves the system, the
potential energy of the state will always be less than that of the
initial state" or in other word entropy. One example given
is that a gasoline-powered car that runs out of gas will not run
again until someone walks to the station, gets fuel and refuels
Critics of HHO technology that invoke
the first law of thermodynamics usually do so saying, that there
is no such thing as a perpetual motion machine. What the critics
fail to recognize however, is that HHO is a fuel additive, so no
one is talking about a perpetual motion machine. Car owners are
looking towards aftermarket HHO generators to supplement the fuel
on their gasoline-powered cars (or diesel-powered).
Critics that invoke the second law of thermodynamics make the same
mistake. Cars that run solely on water are a thing of science fiction.
Cars that run partially on water are a thing of science fact. This
might not always be the case going forward, but for now it is fact.
Advocates for HHO generators also use the laws of thermodynamics
in their arguments as well. We use this argument to separate fact
from fiction, scams from truth, visual evidence from theoretical
Don't be fooled by people using the laws of thermodynamics as a
selling point as to why HHO generators could never work. The proof
is in practical hands-on experience and not theory.
