what to use for winter eletrolyte?
What is the best thing to use to keep electrolyte for winter have one on the net that talks about vinegar and baking soda mix. Is this what everyone uses when winter hits?

RE: what to use for winter eletrolyte?
The only successful winter mix I'm aware of is using more KOH. Using any form of alcohol ruins the HHO production of the cell. Baking soda and vinegar won't work as a catalyst, especially since they will neutralize each other. But either one alone also won't work as well as KOH.

Thanks me I thought the 2 would counter act each other sense one is a base and one a acid. I have also herd of people using windshield fluid but didn't even want that in my dry cell.

Got it.

There's no reason to reinvent the wheel. Just get some KOH. It's cheap. And it works.

Don't forget, to use a stronger, winter KoH solution you will need a PWM to keep your amps down.

RE: what to use for winter eletrolyte?
Thank guys for the advice. I plan on pulling the unit this weekend and rechecking my flow and for leeks to see if I can dial this thing in. It bench tested good but something if funky it blew my gas mileage from 26.4 to 20.9 I suspect a leak in my bubble tank and may be making to much gas/ steam like Mike said.

I still have to build or buy a EFIE for the system do to money issues this will not happen until after the 1st of November. I will buy KOH then too. I have not reinstalled yet until I get this thing right on the bench with a PWM and the KOH.

Thanks
