Frequently Asked Questions
GENERAL QUESTIONS & Vehicle Application
1. If I decide to build and install an HHO Kit in my vehicle, will I get rust or corrosion in the engine?
2. Do the instructions show me how to
install my HHO Generator?
3. Will the HHO Generators work on both
Fuel Injection and Carbureted engines?
Yes, however you must use a form of computer compensation for fuel injected vehicles. The best method is to use the new Volo FS2 Fuel Saver Chip, which we provide a link to their website on our download page. The FS2 will control your 02 sensors and ignition timing to work best with your HHO system. Other methods include an E.F.I.E Device or Oxygen Sensor extenders, which we provide information on both of these methods as well.
On both carbureted and fuel injected engines, connect the HHO injection hose directly into the air filter box.
Remember, if your vehicle is a fuel injected vehicle, with an OBD1 or
OBD2 "On Board Diagnostics", you must use either the Volo FS2 Fuel Saver Chip, O2 sensor extenders or EFIE device to "trick" the vehicle computer so it does not detect the extra oxygen in the exhaust gas.
is the "O2 Sensor" and why does it matter?
The cars computer has only been
programmed with information regarding regular fuels (whatever it was
designed for). When you make an effiicient HHO generator, you are
injecting a LOT more oxygen in to the engine (which is actually GOOD,
but the computer thinks something is wrong). The computer thinks the
engine isn't working properly and adds more fuel to burn the extra
oxygen. If you don't add a Volo FS2 Fuel Saver Chip or EFIE, you could actually lose mileage with
an HHO generator.
6. Is it Safe to Use Plumbing Parts for the more basic HHO Systems?
7. What do I do to protect the HHO Generator during cold weather?
1, Use denatured alcohol or ethyl alcohol, mix 1 part
alcohol to every 5 parts vinegar.
8. How often do I need to check or change the water?
It depends on the size of the container you choose to build. If yours is approximately 12" high, and the plates are at the bottom, you need to check the water once a week, depending on driving habits. The kits we are making come with an added water reservoir that only needs to be checked when the refill light comes on to alert you. A simple water level sensor connected to an LED light in the vehicle dashboard can be used.
9. How do I know how many O2 Sensors I have?
Very simple- Look at your engines exhaust manifold. If you have a 4 cylinder engine- you will generally see one sensor very close to the engine on the exhaust pipe and follow it down to the catalytic converter. If you have a V6 or V8, you generally have 2. There are generally 2 sensors before the catalytic converter- one on each side of the engine exhaust manifold. They are about the size of a large spark plug and have 1 to 4 wires going to them in general. You will have to peak under the car to find them, but they're all always pretty close the back side of the engine and are in the exhaust pipes BEFORE they come together and enter the catalytic converter.
Many cars have 2 more further back- but they don't matter.
10. Is it possible to run the vehicle on just HHO alone without any other fuel?
No one has come close to matching his
efficiency, though there are a few have succeeded in running a small
generator on HHO gas alone. But there are bugs that need to be worked
We have people who need these but are not very mechanically inclined. There are also those that don't want to build a Hydrogen Generator from scratch, they just want to put one on their car and start saving gas and money.
If you are not inclined, we suggest asking a neighbor, friend or relative to install it - many times they will do it for very little money or for free because they want to see if it does work (and it does!). The other option is to take the kit to a local mechanic with instructions- a good mechanic should be able to install it within a few hours, and you'll be up and running.
13. Do I have to make
any changes to my vehicles engine or vehicle computer?
14. I am having trouble finding
room for it - can I put it in a different container?
Others use plexiglass to make a new rectangular container, but be careful to use GOOP, not silicone to glue the joints as it will not hold up under alkaline conditions. Some are able to hunt and find different containers all together by laying the plate stack on its side instead of standing vertically.
Dry Cell HHO Generators are usually the best option, most measure at only 6x6 inches squared.
The bottom line is to be
creative. Whatever it takes to get the HHO generator working- it's worth
15. Will this void my vehicle warranty?
Conditions that may void a vehicle's warranty are specified in a law called the Moss-Magnusson Act which stipulates dealers cannot void warranties because vehicles have aftermarket parts. If the dealer can prove a particular aftermarket part caused a particular failure, they can disallow the claim for that issue only. For example, if your engine fails, the dealer can't refuse to fix it because the car has aftermarket wheels. However, if the engine has been modified, they may have a case and may deny the claim. We don't modify engines in any way.
16. Do I have to Modify my engine or computer?
17. How do I know if this will work on my vehicle model?
We have not encountered a vehicle yet that HHO Generators will not work on. This technology works on ALL vehicle types EXCEPT Electric Hybrid's: HHO Works with Gasoline, Diesel, Propane, Biodiesel, Cars, Trucks, SUV's, Boats, Motorcycles. If it has an Internal Combustion Engine, HHO will increase the mileage of that engine.
18. What if I want a refund?
Just check your email for your transaction receipt, and follow the instructions to submit a dispute for a refund. Your refund will process within 7 days.
