He Doubles MPG With H20 Processor
The idea of making hydrogen gas with an on-board electrolysis unit to boost mileage isn't new. But George Wiseman thinks his HyZor Kit has solved the problem of getting consistent results. He doesn't try to replace fuel with the gas, but rather uses it to improve fuel combustion. He claims customers have reported doubling their fuel mileage with his kit.
"My kit feeds a mix of hydrogen and oxygen - also known as Brown's gas - into the air filter, which serves as a back fire arrestor," he explains. "It also carefully regulates the amount of gas produced and added to the fuel. A lot of systems produce too much. There's a certain amount that is optimum."
Wiseman suggests that a rule of thumb is one amp of current to the electrolyzer for each liter of engine size. More than that and mileage per gallon is lost, not gained, he says.
"It takes seven watts of (energy) fuel to make one watt of gas," he says. "To make the process pay, you have to get more than seven watts of gain."
To get that extra gain, he uses an interface with the vehicle's electronic control and sensor system. Normally when you feed hydrogen into the carburetor most of the hydrogen is burned, and oxygen and water vapor are exhausted. However, exhaust system sensors read the extra oxygen and tell the fuel system to increase fuel flow. So that sensor has to be reset so fuel isn't wasted.
"With more reliance on computer sensors in vehicles, we have to continue to develop a more sophisticated interface," says Wiseman.
In addition to the interface, Wiseman has tried to make his system easy to use and maintain. An LED light on a circuit board that attaches to the dash indicates when water/catalyst needs to be added. A syringe of about 20 ml is approximately enough for a tank of fuel.
"If you can't add the water, it's not a problem," says Wiseman. "The system automatically shuts down, and you simply stop getting the mileage gain and other benefits."
These other benefits, he claims, include removal of carbon deposits in the engine, increased engine life and reduced pollution. His kit also operates independently of all pollution equipment, so no warranties or regulations are affected.
"My interface is invisible to pollution equipment," says Wiseman. "Hydrocarbons drop to almost nothing. CO2 goes to almost nothing. Nitrous oxides drop so thoroughly there is little for the catalytic converter to do, which should extend its life."
Wiseman originally developed his system for his own car and then wrote a book about it with how-to plans. People without the time or skills to make their own asked for a kit, and the HyZor was the result.
The book is available for $22. A complete HyZor kit sells for $388.
