Big Grin How To Learn More
Hi All,

I just finished my first HHO kit that I built that actually works!!! Its on my 1983 Mercedes 5 cyl Turbo Diesel. I can feel the power and have been driving around all day and the fuel gauge has hardly gone down.

Now I want to move on to my other cars. Where can I find more info on using these things on GAS cars? The Diesel Mercedes was super simple because there arn't any sensors to worry about. If someone could shed some experience or links that I could read I would be very stoked. Even though I built one I am still very much a beginer.

Want to do a 1998 Subaru Legacy, 2001 Chevy Silverado 5.3L, and 2007 F150 5.4L.

THANKS!

2007 F150 5.4L (Gas)
2005 F350 6.0L Diesel (100% Biodiesel)
2003 Fleetwood Motorhome with 300hp CAT (100% Biodiesel)
2001 Silverado 5.3L (Gas)
1985 Mercedes 300 SD (Waste Veggie Oil)
1983 Mercedes 300 TD (Waste Veggie Oil)

Did you use stainless welding wire?

What electrolyte?

Many users recommend Lowes's drain cleaner, Roebic (or something like that). Its 100% potassium hydroxide, and under $10.

I am working on a few generators and my neighbor has a bottle of Roebic. I looked at the contents, And it has potassium hydroxide and something else. Some type of cloride. I will look at the bottle again and report what it is. I did not use it because i was not sure if it would produce a poisonous gas or something like that.

i used SS welding wire with a mix of what ever came out of the Mig welder. i also used about 1/4 teaspoon of NaOH with 1 quart of water.

Distilled water or tap? Tap has a lot of crap in it and makes sludge.

i only use distilled water. i know the rust has to be coming from the weld's because they were not 100% stainless.
after changing the water and putting power to the booster the water will turn rusty in only a minute or so. it seems like this is not good to me but i don't know much about this.
can it hurt anything, like the engine, or am i fine. need to know if i should rebuild or if i am good. BTW it still produces a lot of hydrogen so i know its still working good.

THANKS

Maybe you can clean the welds and cover them with epoxy.

Wow, the water turns brown after around a minute? I've run my generator longer on baking soda (which turns the water brown) before it turned rusty-colored.

Did you be sure to clean the generator well after you welded it? You could have gotten some random something-or-rather on it, I don't know exactly. If nothing else seems to be the problem, maybe the not 100% stainless could be the problem?

I'm building a Mr. G method as well! Could you post some pics or a video of your configuration, as well as specs on the metals, etc.? I would LOVE to see it! And what did you use between the plates? Polyeurethane mesh?

Silicone in generator will produce brown sludge and kill the potency of the sodium/potassium electrolyte within a day or two.
