HHO Help for extreme (Hawaiian) newbie
Hi,

Some recently introduced me to the world of hydrogen fuel. I have done research online but there is a wealth of products out there with many sceptics but after reading some positive reviews, I figure why not give it a try. My husband is not really mechanically inclined, so I'm not sure that we"d be able to build a kit specifically for our cars. Is there only already being manufactured that you all would recommend for:

1) 1999 Chevrolet Suburban
2) 2005 Ford Excursion

Also, is there anything else other than the hydrogen fuel kit that we would need?

I noticed that there are many modifications that would need to be made to get it working properly for our specific cars. Would it be better to use a mechanic? My concern is that they would be unfamiliar with the technology and ruin our cars.

Also, is there anyone in Hawaii that would be able to help? Thank you so much. With our big gas guzzlers, we really need to find something that will help to increase our mileage.

Aloha!

RE: HHO Help for extreme (Hawaiian) newbie
I changed your topic. That might help.

A lot of electrical connections need to be made as well as running wires into your vehicle, so you'll probably want a mechanic with an "open mind". Mine is quite interested, hoping I'll inform him of all the easy/cheap/magical fixes so he doesn't have to research them.

You'll need relay, fuses, switches, wire, tubing, ammeter, hho cell, and bubbler so best to get an entire kit. With 2 large vehicles, if ordering a commercial unit, they may recommend a larger unit or 2 units.

There is some maintenance involved with these units (adding water, occasional flushing) and monitoring current draw so it doesn't overheat, so this isn't a plug'n drive modification.

Aloha! If you'll pay for my round trip air fare from Northeast USA, I'll be glad to come out and install a couple systems for you Ha Ha.

I can't PERSONALLY recommend any pre-manufactured ones, but here's one I was thinking about myself (it's new though and ships from South Africa). He seems very honest and sincere and above board (with the forum and all). I assume you don't want to spend a lot of money:

Another one that works well for short trips only since it heats up too much and is not nearly efficient as the one above:

http://www.smacksboosters.110mb.com/

This one above would be OK probably for short trips (no more than an hour) or with a current limited PWM (a special driver circuit to supply power)

There are many others also that I have heard about such as Hyzor, Magdrive, etc.

Hyzor (George Wiseman, very nice guy): http://eagle-research.com/

Magdrive (he has a reputation as not always being too nice - I don't know): http://www.fuelfromh2o.com/

Here's one that I am very sceptical of (in other words sounds to good to be true and it's new): http://www.hydraficient.com/drupal/

This one seems super sophisticated and super expensive (and it's new also): http://www.hydroxycorp.com/shop/

I hope that this helps some and let me know about the airplane tickets, I'm willing to negotiate.
