HHO & Liquified Petroleum Gas
Hi

I live in Australia and we have a high percentage of vehicles running on LPG (liquified petroleum gas). Most taxis run on LPG at a cost 40% that of gas ("petrol" in Australia and the UK). I'm not sure if you call it LPG in the US (assuming that most of this forum's members are in the US).

My question is can HHO be used with LPG?

Also, a couple of observations.

1/ I've noted the use of nylon check valves as a "safety" feature in HHO systems. The idea seems to be to stop any possible flashback. Surely a genuine flashback arrestor would be a better idea as check valves are not necessarily designed to arrest flashbacks.

2/ I've also come across (in this forum) the suggestion that a valve be installed at the top of the electrolyzer to let air in. I've seen the suggestion that an irrigation dripper be used. Surely this is exactly where you WOULD want to use a check valve so that only air gets in and no HHO gets out directly from the electrolyzer into the engine bay rather than running thru (say) the bubbler.
