Bubbler problem
I bought a SL 30 HHO Generator and I am running about 10 amps, I use a Bubbler and after my hour drive to work it will suck the water out of the bubbler after I shut down the engine. I to have only gained 2 miles per gallon, went from 28 to 30, not complaining yet. the power seems better, and engine runs smother. can anyone answer this water delima. I have run about 4 tanks full of fuel about 1800 miles and I would hope this would be long enough to see if this is going to work. I also was going to try more amps. any suggestions. Thanks Scott

RE: Bubbler problem
Hi Scott. Where does the water go, back into the hho unit?

After you fix the bubbler, I'd go for 15 amps and see if your mileage improves.

Have you done any tuning or added an EFIE to lean out your mixture?

RE: Bubbler problem
Hi Colchiro, it goes back into the HHO unit and eventully overfills it, I tried to move it further from the generator but it did not seem to make a difference, also I put a loop in my clear line, this didn't work either. not sure what to do at this point. I do live in altitude, not sure if the pressure is causing this or not, I bought an EFIE unit last week, I hope to install it this weekend. between track and baseball I am not home alot. Teenagers ya know.

RE: Bubbler problem
Maybe a setup like mine might work for you.

I'll find out this weekend how it works on a 4 hour trip.

RE: Bubbler problem
Your going to need a one-way valve between the bubbler and the generator, the generator heats up during operation and when you shut the unit off the pressure changes and the cold air from the bubbler and the line to the motor sucks back into the generator had the same problem bought a one-way valve problem solved.

RE: Bubbler problem
http://www.mcmaster.com, look for check valves under Process Control (left side), then click on 465 and scroll toward the bottom.

These look promising:
PVC Spring-Loaded Ball Check Valves
Spring-Loaded Ball Check Valves with Barbed Connections
