Question www.waterpower.com????

Has anyone tried this, or is it another snake oil sales pitch? It claims it can increase your fuel mileage as much a 40%?? Just wanted to know if anyone has tried it before I paid the $47 for planes to run H2O. They claim you'l soend aproc $60-$150 In parts to convert to run with H2O?

Water injection will not increase your fuel economy.... At all. What water injection will do is is give you a hand controlling your EGT's when towing heavy, and if you mix it with somewhere between 15-50% methanol it will yield around 50 horsepower. But you can't run it all the time. Injecting H2O with the RPM or boost too low can give you a shiny new inspection hole in the side of your block.

Oh....nevermind. I thought you were talking about water injection. Not a hydrogen generator.

The jury is still out on the HHO generators. Read the link tradergem posted and also this one. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/68...002-7-3-a.html

Lots of reading, but well worth it IMO.

Thumbs up

I found the post on HHO injection after I posted this question in this forum. They give you instructions for free and they are using it on a 7.3 IDI. Sorry for posting a question that is already deing discussed. Thanks all and God bless
