Diesel Application
Thanks to Mike and everyone who straighten me out I think I am at the "upkeep" stage on the system I've installed. I do have a new challenge, Ford F-250 Diesel engine. Does it require an EFIE to treat the O2 on it or will the "Extenders" will do fine?

I want to say early to mid 2000. I was reading in the "result" section and Mike had suggested to another member to just install the HHO system and go.

Extenders don't work.

RE: Diesel Application
first check and see if your diesel HAS an oxygen sensor.
I'd be surprised if it did, but my knowledge of diesel pickups is minimal.

Install hho and go is what you get to do if it doesn't have the diesel.
Oxygen sensors are engineered in gas cars to keep the air fuel ratio to a certain spot. Diesels have no throttle and so the air fuel ratio varies WIDELY.

RE: Diesel Application
You don't need an EFIE on that truck. Later models (after 2008) may need them with the new EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) systems. I actually don't know about those yet. Anyone reading this done one yet?

But earlier models don't need EFIEs. Diesel engines work differently. You should get excellent gains using HHO only.

RE: Diesel Application
Thank you for the inputs I should be getting the truck in a couple of days. If the result are what everyone say they will be I think I'll focus on diesel vehicles.
