HHO to big trucks?
Hi.

I would be interested in getting a hho system into a 12 l diesel truck engine. Has anyone succesfully built a hho set that is big enough for this one? Any pictures? Should I use plates, tubes or what?

I'm really a newbie, but I think I would give this a try if I had some good advice. Diesel 1,40 €/l and rising...Confused

Does your truck have 4 batteries? My cousins Pete 379 does and we were discussing building a generator and mounting it under the sleeper, and the amount of HHO produced should be spectacular because with 4 batteries and 2 alternators it is going to be a 100 amp generator.

Yes i am also new here. I have been given the task of researching the HHO system for big rigs (18 wheelers) also. We have over 300 trucks in the fleet and the cost of fuel is really hurting..What would be the best system. I will continue to read and learn here..my thanks to those who continue to contribute great information!!...

Our trucks have two 12v batteries. High ampers isn't really any problem in these vehicles, I think the problem is how to get enough hydrogen gas to make a difference. What would be the most effective way to create hydrogen?

Bought couple weeks ago few metres and two sizes of ss tubes, maybe I'll start with them...

Has anyone tried D18 cells?

RE: HHO to big trucks?
This site has some stuff to be taken with a grain of salt (more study) but is an eye opener:
http://www.mindstrain.com/
There is a canadian company that has been selling very nice high-end units for big trucks for some time now:
Darn, cant' find it. But this one has a lot of links too:

Mika: I wonder about those things. Well built, but it looks like a huge spacing between the tubes; could use less electrolyte if they fit closer IMO. Plus, a lot of money for the basic guts, but there is machining and welding time to consider.
