Last week we ignited some healthy discussion in the comments with my post on the (de)merits of on-board hydrogen generators and injectors. While few could argue with my basic thermodynamic analysis of the process, defenders repeated the claim from producers of these systems that something magical happens when you add hydrogen to the air fuel mixture of an engine. We've looked into this a little further in recent days including with a powertrain engineer that actually understands combustion proce

Historically whenever gas prices have gone up, charlatans have come out of the woodwork offering drivers all manner of devices that are claimed to provide dramatic reductions in fuel consumption. From magnets that are clamped to fuel lines, to assorted vacuum advance devices, and intake vortex generators and magical carburetors none of these have actually been demonstrated to work. Many of these old school devices can still be found, but one of the most popular new devices is the on-board hydrog

Global Energy Options and H to-go have developed a retro-fit device called the Hydro Fuel System Hydro-charger that is designed to help improve fuel economy. Texas based H to-go markets the system as MAPSOE (for Most Abundant Power Source On Earth). The device consists primarily of an on-board electrolysis unit to produce hydrogen from a water tank and a system to inject the hydrogen into a standard internal combustion engine. The company claims to have done testing on a variety of engines rangi
