I Need Help With My HHO Selection!
If you are having a hard time figuring out which size HHO generator you need, there are a couple of factors to use in deciding:
WHAT SIZE IS MY ENGINE?
You can usually tell by opening the hood if you don't already know. The rule of thumb is about .5 to 1 liter of HHO gas production, per liter of engine size. So if you have a 5.0 liter engine, you really need anywhere from 2.5 to 5 liters of production of HHO gas.
We take the guess work out of it by classifying ours in 3 categories: Small, Medium and Large for small engines (4 cylinder), medium engines (6 cylinder), and large (8-10 cylinders). There are exceptions so we recommend by liters as well.
If you have a turbo- go up one size of generator. You can see the selection here: HHO GENERATORS
HOW MUCH SPACE DO I HAVE TO INSTALL?
Look between the front grill and radiator - 90% of all generators are installed there (they will not cause your engine to overheat from blocking the radiator - we have many thousands of satisfied customers that put them there. Other space is below radiator- behind the bumper, and in the spare area of the fornt fender wells. Last choice is the trunk, and our least favorite. To see sizes of kits and hardware check our detail page: HHO generator sizes
HOW NEW OR OLD IS MY CAR?
Your car may need special Tuner electronics to help with the computer in it. See the electronics help below. You want to make sure car is maintained and has good spark plugs, air filter, and oil change. If it has a lot of miles- you may need to replace the O2 sensors, but try without doing that first.
DO I NEED ELECTRONICS?
If your car is 1987 or 1988 and newer, you probably have some level of electronics and need either a simple device or if newer- you may want a more advance tuner. See below.
DO I NEED A PWM?
This is asked a lot. Our kits do not require them becasue they can handle a lot of current- more than your alternator can put out. However, some really like the manual control over the current, so they get a PWM for there's- we sell them. ALso- if you live in sub zero FREEZING areas, and need to prevent the hho kit from freezing, you need a PWM for sure. We can show you how to set it up in our manual to prevent freezing to -40 degrees F. Contact us for more help.
I NEED HELP DECIDING WHAT TYPE OF ELECTRONICS WITH MY HHO KIT??
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT ELECTRONICS MY CAR NEEDS?
If your car is 1985 or newer, it is probably fuel injected or TBI (Throttle Body Injected). The amount of gas injected into your engine is largely controlled by what the Oxygen (Lamda) sensors tell your cars' computer. The Oxygen sensors sense the amount of O2 in the exhaust of the motor- too much O2, and the car computer (ECU) tells the motor it needs more gasoline. Too little O2 and the ECU tells the motor to back off the gasoline.
When you introduce the pure hydrogen from our generators into your cars air intake, it carries with it almost 34% pure Oxygen as well (the air we breathe is only 18% Oxygen). Besides helping the hydrogen burn even cleaner, it significantly raises the O2 levels that the sensors read, which causes a problem for the car ECU, which is basically dumb when it comes to alternative fuels like on demand hydrogen such as you get from our generators. It can only think one thing when you introduce that mush O2: "Too much oxygen- I need to add more gasoline to burn it up". The result: LOWER GAS MILEAGE
If your car is 1996 or NEWER; We recommend the use of our Advanced EFIE/MAF combo series which will handle up to 4 O2 sensors and a MAF or MAP (only need one). If you want really deep control of the important sensors- use our new PRO SERIES combo for unmatched results!
If your car is OLDER than 1996; We recommend the use of our Advanced EFIE/MAF combo series which will handle up to 4 O2 sensors and a MAF or MAP (only need one). Your car will most likely not have more than the MAF and O2 sensors if it is older than 1996, and may only have one or two efies, and no maf. You can get the advanced combo with both on it, or just a simple efie
If your car has a Carburetor, then you do NOT need any electronics measures- just the HHO Kit
If your car or truck is Diesel, then it cannot use an efie, as they have no O2 sensors (unless they are really new- check to see). If it has any electronic controls, you want to use the Diesel Tuner kit for HHO kits.
If it is OLDER than 1996 and does not have electronics, then it should have a manual fuel screw to allow you to lean out diesel a bit, but try to use it with HHO kit First, and only lean out if needed. You must be careful not to over lean engine so you do not cause damage. As always- we cannot be held liable if you damage your engine from over adjusting or leaning out too much, so be very conservative with adjustments.
