If we could consistently produce 2/3 lpm HHO and further convert same into an mpg gain we might be concerned with esoterica like system life, i.e. wet cell vs. dry cell. We're not there yet. Sorry if we act like we're there; but there's a way to go before we could even consider your hypothesis, alpha error, beta error, statistical significance of data, etc. You won't find the data you're looking for here even though this board is the alpha and omega of HHO. Someday, maybe.
Yorick must be the name of some guy in a famous book I never read. Anyhooo...
It seems to me that there are quite a few claimse of productions in excess of 2 litres a minute. Is that just a bunch of bologna? Or what? I am not looking for "system life" (if you have data on system life that would be great, but...). All I am interested in is something like......"Well I can run my XXX system for 6 months before my cells corroded through..."...Thanks for trying to help me out thomasbala. Just out of curiosity what sort of production is typical for an optimized system (average)? Thanks for your time everyone.
I find your terminology hilarious: "an optimized system" conjures up thoughts of the new "Mac" vs. the new "HP Pavilion F560US" with an 80 gig hard drive. No one has an optimized system; if they did they wouldn't know it. HHO technology has changed so fast in the last 8 months it's futile to track the data. We've gone from wet cells, to brick-in-a-bath to wrapped bricks in a bath to dry cells. I'll bet the average experimenter has a Smithsonian collection of various electrolysis devices in his garage, for none of which there was any useful data collected. Why? same reason a kid doesn't ride his tricycle again once he knows how to ride a 2 wheeler. Perhaps you have the idea that HHO devices are like Fords, Chevies, Nissans, etc. such that you hear:
"you'll get 200,000 miles out of that Toyota if you treat it right." A standardized HHO device is a long way off. I doubt that anyone on this board has been using the same system for 6 months.
Production of 2 to 3 LPM is not achieved without cost. That cost is amperage, heat, alternator drag, etc. Ordinarily that "cost" is reduced by using multiple cells as opposed to a bigger cell. What works for a 1.9 liter Fiat won't work for a 4.6 liter Ford. You also have to ask 2-3 LPM of what? There are some still using baking soda and they will get tremendous production, but, of what. They think it's HHO; they don't know it's H2, CO2 and CO.
Even if you could collect data such as you describe: " All I am interested in is something like......"Well I can run my XXX system for 6 months before my cells corroded through...", what good would that info be to anyone using HHO. At this stage of the game I don't think anyone is interested in durability. Sounds like you want to learn how to be a sportscaster for a baseball game without first learning how the game is played. Good luck in your data collection.
