Great results!! 70mpg!! 53mpg with leaks..*NEWEST PICS + VIDEOS pg. 9*
Everyone, guess what?! I got some noticeable results finally *yay music!* Before I was getting an average (stop + go, travel, etc.) of around 35mpg and a little under 50mpg when driving. Check this out!

So I went on a little trip (165 miles one way) this weekend shortly after installing my new plate (or smack) design. I thought it would be a great way to test how well it works, seeing how I've done that drive 100000 times (college route), so I know EXACTLY how much gas I used before generators, with ethanol, and with two generator designs. WELL, here are the results with my NEWEST generator vs. my older setups (1 tank = 15gal.):
*REMEMBER: E85 was ONLY used on test #2, no others!*
1. No alternatives - 1/2 tank (8 gal.)
2. E85 fuel - ~7 gallons
3. Generator #1 - 5 gallons
4. Generator #3 - 4 gallons
5. NEWEST generator (#5 I think?) - 2 gallons!!
Ok, well here you are thinking "WTF, that's a jump...?" Ok, ok, so it wasn't 2 gallons on the dot, it was like 2.4 gallons at most. But either way! You calculate that and it's around 69mpg at least! WOW!! did I mention it's got almost every variety of terrain? Here's a spec. of the drive to the college (destination):

First 1/4 - smooth, tiny hills
Second 1/4 - LOTS of mountain
Third 1/4 - bit mountainy, lots of small (35mph) towns
Fourth 1/4 - smooth, few small (35mph) towns (including destination)

I sure hope this helps! I'm also running a 14-plate setup like this (changing later?): +NNNNN--NNNNN+
And I'm producing a little under 1LPM if I calculated it right (video coming soon!)
As always, I only use distilled water (~1/3 gallon) with ~1 teaspoon of NaOH (should I add more or not?) or "Roebic" from the local Lowes. And my mods to the computer-based stuff include o2 gappers on pre and post-cat o2 sensors (because of aftermarket header, need post-cat for no CEL), that's it.

Feel free to discuss or ask away with your questions! To be honest, I'm probably using most of my gas on daily commutes when I start the car. Tongue

Congrats!!
I hope to improve my own system and acheive better numbers. Any chance of posting a picture of your plate config? this interests me, also all the N's in between.

RE: Yay, I finally consider this a result!!
Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate all the support on this forum. For those of us who watch my videos on youtube, I'm always mentioning for people to check us out!

And I'm still not sure on a few things: what should I change my plate configuration to to get better results with my one generator (not two yet)? And if I split it to two gens. at 7 plates each (2 systems), what would be a good configuration? And where do I get this plasti dip? I really don't want to have to order it on ebay for $15 if I can pick it up locally somewhere, any input? And where the heck is my ammeter!?!? darn Chinese, thinking they can take longer than a week to get something shipped to the USA and have me ok with that...even though I knew...it would take that long.....But still!! lol

Nope, just the o2 gappers as mentioned in the first post. No PWM, no nothing other than a relay to turn the generator on with my car and the 20A fuses like normal. I'll be getting pictures and a video up after I do my schedule for work.

RDK, nice.Wink

To clarify.... #'s 3-5 are using E85 as well?

How many trips with the latest gen? (i.e. how many times have you got these nice results?)
