No savings
Hi all, new to this but learning quickly. Anyway to cut a long story short, got my generator working great ( I have posted in the "installation" section if you want to see what I went through). Making great gas, amps are good (20 when at operating temp), I have a carburetted engine (1987 Nissan), so in theory I should see something, but my gas mileage is the same, and I don't understand why. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, or forgot to do something. If anyone has any ideas, or questions as to what I have or haven't done feel free to ask

God give me the serenity to accept things which cannot be changed;
Give me courage to change things which must be changed;
And the wisdom to distinguish one from the other

RE: No savings
The gas you are generating makes your combustion process more efficient, this allows you to burn less fuel. This means your fuel system needs to reduce the amount of fuel it is delivering to the engine. The fuel system will not do this automatically. In your case you need to adjust your mixture screws, or even better install a carburetor enhancer from Eagle Research. Use the link below to find it on their site under fuel savers. This item will really help your mileage gains with your electrolyzer.

Retarding your timing will help also, just try a few degrees at first.
