I recently had someone email me that had purchased our 8 day course (we sell as an illustrated booklet for those that are in a hurry to make a decision).
He asked this question: "How does your system "tune"? I plan on purchasing your kit with tuner, but don't understand what I am tuning."
That's a great question. I figured others might have the same one, so this is how I answered it:
The “tuners” we provide, don't directly affect the flow of fuel, we rely on the massive work of the engineers who programmed the engines with specific fuel maps, based on the engines needs, to do that.
All engines with computers (ECM's) use sensors to gather data and send that to the ECM. The ECM then chooses the proper fuel map, based on that information, which is constantly changing. Most "TUNERS" try to inject their own programs to help the engine get more horsepower or economy, but many times the ECM will override their attempts (especially when it comes to gas savings!)
So our tuners bypass the programming entirely, and "hijack" the signal before it gets to the ECM. We actually route the signals coming from the O2 sensors and MAF/MAP sensors, before they reach the car computer (ECM). While it seems “that is not enough”, the sensors are quite sensitive to changes internally in the engine, and just a few millivolts of change affects WHICH fuel map the ECM decides to use, which determines how much fuel to inject. In other words, we are not trying to work against the engineering software of the car, we are simply changing the inputs that determine how much fuel is used. We can adjust the MAF (in most cars) to actually cause the engine to stumble because the fuel is leaned out by the ECM, based on those signals. So while we are only adjusting or tuning the signals by using a voltmeter, we are leveraging the car computer to do the rest of the work.
Does that make sense? Obviously, it is much more complex than that, but essentially, computers are only as smart as the data that is input into them. We make sure they get the right data to lean out the fuel in an unconventional way.
Hope that helps...
Make sure you check out our cutting edge new H2XTRME HHO generators, and check out more info on the tuners as well!
Our HHO kits are designed so anyone can install them. You do not have to be a mechanic or electrician either. Our fully illustrated manuals clearly explain the process for everyone and we offer free tech support if you need help.
The HHO kit hardware is straightforward for every car or truck: Install the 3 components (Generator, Reservoir, and filter); connect them with provided hoses and clamps, and connect the wiring (also included). At that point you are ready to fill up and run your kit.
However, If your car has fuel injection (most cars newer than 1999), you need to install a gas or diesel tuner so that the car computer knows to lean out the fuel when HHO gas is being injected. The gas tuner connects to the signal wire of the O2 sensors and MAF. We show you how to easily locate these wires in less than 5 minutes. You simply connect the wires to the tuner and use a voltage meter to adjust the tuner to suggested settings, then take it out to test.
Sometimes a little tweaking is recommended to find optimal settings for your car – which is best found by driving around. The best settings are when your car actually has better acceleration and pick up (no loss of power), and idles quietly and smoothly, and still gets amazing results.
After that, just check your water from time to time, and top off when necessary. You start saving IMMEDIATELY, from day one. Drive it around, test it out, fill up and see the results for yourself. Then just make a tiny adjustment on the tuner and see if it makes it even better. You will soon find the perfect adjustment. This can take a day or so, but once you find the best setting, you’re done and don’t have to touch it again. And if you need to turn off the HHO system for any reason- it automatically reverts to the OEM settings.
This is another commonly asked question we get quite often when people are just finding out about hho and the on demand hydrogen world.
The short answer is - Yes!
The long answer: Because our kits create a unique form of hydrogen-oxygen gas, (which is very energetic, and very combustible when ignited inside an engine), the HHO gas will work on any working engine that burns hydrocarbon fuel already. So it will work in all engines currently using gasoline (petrol), diesel, bio-diesel, CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), and LPG (Liquid Propane Gas).
One of our customers driving an LPG conversion Lorry in the UK, got a 50% increase in mileage when he added our hho kit to his vehicle!
If you have an newer vehicle using gasoline, you need an efie/maf tuner for the electronics, which you can see here: http://www.hhokitsdirect.com/collections/all/products/efie-maf-advanced-gas-tuner-for-hho-kits
If your newer vehicle uses diesel or bio-diesel, You will need the Diesel tuner here: http://www.hhokitsdirect.com/collections/all/products/advanced-diesel-tuners-for-hho
If your car is older and still uses a carburetor, or mechanically controlled diesel pump, then the hho kits work fine without tuner chips at all.
