volo chips
I have been researching on that volo chip thing and did not find their website, all I have found is pages with people saying how great it is but no technical description.

So what is it? What does it do? Is there a manufacturer website somewhere with all the appropriate specs and data? Is it like an EFiE? Does it leans out the fuel mixture?

If anyone knows please let me know.

Cheers.

I'm sure you've seen their yahoo web store. That's the only site they have as far as I know. Its here: http://yhst-19807630266082.stores.yahoo.net/

They are not an EFIE. They are a remapping of the computer, and are supposed to make the engine run leaner. They are kind of a fad right now in the HHO industry. Many suppliers are recommending them based on their claims. However, in our testing, they are not nearly as effective as an EFIE. They can't be adjusted, so one-size-fits-all. They were designed to be used alone, without any other device, so cannot be very aggressive in their leaning curves. Lastly, I've heard many reports that they haven't worked at all, however, in my tests, they have worked, but just not very well.

I've been meaning to write a more complete article on the Volo chip. I'll probably have one up at http://www.fuelsaver-mpg.com/documents.html in the near future. Keep an eye out for it.

Hey Mike,

thanks for the check.

As far, as for the Volo Chip I've tested them on my testbed vehicle, they don't work. Just find the right EFIE for your car and wire on and adjust according to what Mike suggest you should see gain.

RE: volo chips
That's what I was wondering.... no controls... no deal for me. But the idea of remapping the computer is interesting since you just need to plug it on that OBD socket under the steering wheel..

Mike, I have added a link to your product page from my new website, check it out http://hydroxygas.com.au the link is at the bottom of the H-Source page.

Hi Zipstor,
Just been and looked at your web site and the cells you are building. A word of warning for you as I have been there and had a couple of disasters.The solid poly gaskets you are using are going to leak.Period.
It doesn't seem to matter how much you torque them down, after the cell goes through several heating and cooling cycles it will leak.Far better to use EPDM with a hardness of 70/80 duro.The flexibility won't allow any leaks.
My partner made up hundreds of those hard poly gaskets for a customer against my advice and guess what.

RE: volo chips
Well, I'm using liquid gasket paste and it seems fine so far, its EPDM rubber.. So what I do is that I give it a good run after it dried and re apply more torque and its done.

The concept of solid spacers is really interesting, it will allow indeed to make some semi external network in order to completely loose the holes in the plates in the end. So I'm not going to drop this idea that easily.

I'm quiet confident with this system, and will take the time to solve all problems no matter what.

Thanks very much for the heads up.

Mike, do you have an ETA on writing up your Volo article ??

RE: volo chips
Sorry, no. I have a bunch of stuff in front of it. I have 3 new EFIE products out and I have to go through an revamp all of my installation instructions. I'm trying to simplify them and make them more understandable, as well as covering the new products.

But there isn't much more to tell really, than what I already said. They just aren't as workable, and we have many reports from folks who tell us that they don't work at all.

RE: volo chips
I'm thinking about making "separator cells" now that uses a membrane to separate the Oxy from the Hydro. The Oxygen will be released and only the Hydrogen will be used. Therefore no use of an EFiE anymore.

What do you guys think.

Zip, that has been discussed at length on this website. A lot of people tried it with limited results. Do a SEARCH on membrane and you'll find the thread here. I've done some work on this myself.
And.......you are right about using only the H2 to eliminate the need for an EFIE. The trick is getting enough H2 to make a difference. I think it can be done, and continue to 'tinker' with it from time to time. You might try using some plastic window material as the membrane. It lets the electrical transfer, and keeps the gases somewhat separated. The fineness of the mesh is critical to keeping the gases separted. Finding the right material to accomplish this it the trick!!
I used a Hydranox 5000 unit on my 2001 Trooper for a while and it made some improvement in city mpg. The results are posted in the H2 Results thread. The Hydranox produces H2 only in theory, but the quantity is pretty small. After a few months use, the unit buckeled and stopped working.
