A hydrogen generator is a mechanism that lets your car engine run on hydrogen instead of pure gasoline. Using this device is a very popular method of saving money on gasoline. People who travel with their automobiles frequently can greatly benefit from the advantages that this mechanism offers. Usage of hydrogen generators, however, is still in experimental phase. While this may work on some cars, it may not work on some others. Therefore, the installation and use of a hydrogen generator is something you can do only at your own risk.
The guide below might help you with installing a hydrogen generator for your vehicle and saving money on gasoline.
Step 1 – Fill the Container with Water
Pour water into the stainless steel container. Add 1 tablespoon salt and mix until salt has dissolved completely in water. Stainless steel containers are better used for a hydrogen generator because of their resistance to heat and oxidation.
Step 2 – Drill Holes on the Container Lid
Drill two holes on the lid of the stainless steel container for the wing nuts to fit into. Drill another hole for the plastic tube with PVC fitting.
Step 3 – Attach the Nuts and Fittings into the Lid
Attach the wing nuts to the lid of the container by inserting them through two of the holes that you have previously drilled. Secure them in place using sealant. Once the nuts are securely attached in place, insert the plastic tube with PVC fittings into the third hole on the lid. Apply sealant to this area, too.
Step 4 – Insert the Plates
Insert the two stainless steel plates into the stainless container filled with salted water. Make sure that the plates are positioned close together.
Step 5 – Seal the Lid
Cover the container with the lid and close it tightly. Secure with sealant to make sure it stays in place and that leaks will not occur.
Step 6 – Drill a Hole in the Air Filter
Drill a hole between the vehicle’s motor air intake and air filter. Connect the other end of the plastic pipe with PVC ends to the hole. This will allow the resulting hydrogen gas to go straight to the automobile’s combustion chambers.
Step 7 – Connect the Power Cables
Connect one end of the power cables to the wing nuts embedded on your hydrogen generator’s lid and connect the other end to the fuse box located somewhere in your car’s dashboard. Placing a switch to toggle the generator on and off is optional for switching the hydrogen generator off when the car is not running.
Step 8 – Seal the Connections with Sealant
Seal the pipes and cables in place to ensure that the hydrogen generator stays in place and that the gas or water does not leak.
A hydrogen generator has both positive and negative reviews, but using one is completely up to you. When in doubt about the hydrogen generator’s effectiveness and operation, see an automobile mechanic that can further assist you with using this device. Always practice caution when handling combustible materials.
