With so many different people selling "HHO Conversion" plans on the internet it can be hard to distinguish between which one's are scams and those that actually work. In this post I am going to discuss one HHO system in particular known as the Hybrid Water Power
System, which is designed and produced by a man named Bob Volk
out of Pleasant Hill, California but before I go into any details let me quickly explain what HHO Technology is about... just in case your new to the concept of "water fuel".
When gas prices struck an all time high during the spring and summer of 2008, a radical new concept for boosting vehicle MPG hit the market known as HHO Technology
. At that particular time there we're many "water fuel" products available being offered by a variety of websites, the best of these particular HHO guides being Water4Gas
In the beginning, the first HHO designs were very poor in quality
. This new concept of "Run Your Car With Hydrogen" was still in it's infancy and many of the HHO plans required you to build your hydrogen generator using wires and glass mason jars
, which later turned out to be a very dangerous method for producing hydroxy gas. Many customers reported mis-haps and "close calls" from exploding mason jars and melting plastic.
The first HHO generators to hit the market were also very inefficien
t. Overheating and other phenomenon known as "Flashback" were quite common among users who built and installed these poorly designed hydrogen cells. Proper application was also difficult as people were having trouble dealing with the Vehicle Computer System, due to the fact that HHO can cause the O2 sensor in Electronic Fuel Injected vehicles to set off the check engine light, and in many cases it can cause the vehicle to use MORE fuel instead of less. Last but not least, these Mason Jar kits just didn't produce enough HHO gas to really make any improvement in vehicle MPG.
It wasn't until around late August of 2008
that Bob Volk made his 'HybridWaterPower
' system available to the public, offering a new HHO Generator design that blasted the previous hydrogen generator designs out of the water. Bob Volk's new HHO plans created a sigh of relief among users looking for a practical way to apply HHO Technology safely and effecitvely
to increase their vehicle's gas mileage.
Hybrid Water Power - The Design
If theres one thing that makes Bob Volk's product better than the rest, it would have to be his new electrolyzer design. His HHO Generator uses plates, not wires,
to produce a VERY LARGE amount of HHO gas (up to 2 litres per minute!). The efficiency of Bob Volk's hydrogen cell make's it possible to significantly improve gas mileage without causing undue strain on the alternator and without overheating the HHO cell itself.
Not only is the HybridWaterPower
system more efficient than others, but it's also the safest HHO Kit
that the average person can build at home. If your an HHO enthusiast then you know that when it comes to producing HHO gas, the goal is to use less amps while producing more HHO.
Bob Volk solved the problem of overheating with his new HHO cell by first; using PVC for the electrolyzer housing and second; using a cell plate stack that allowed for less heat transfer due to current leakage and more HHO production.
Bob Volk has also addressed the issue of dealing with the vehicle O2 sensors by offering valuable information in his ebook about a device known as an EFIE (Electronic Fuel Injection Enhancer). In his ebook, Bob Volk explains the method for "tricking" the vehicle computer sensors to think that no modification has been made to the vehicle. Tricking the vehicle computer is crucial
to getting fuel economy improvements with HHO since the vehicle computer controls the amount of fuel being injected into the engine. Bob Volk was the FIRST researcher to solve this problem by introducing 2 new methods for dealing with the vehicle computer... the EFIE and another method which uses a device called an "O2 Sensor Extender".
Hybrid Water Power - Overall Product
Bob Volk also brought a new way of teaching people how to build thier own HHO kit by using video instructions along with his HHO manual
. He took the entire project to a whole new level by offering 105 private videos
showing his customers how to build, install, maintain and troubleshoot the HybridWaterPower HHO system. Before his product hit the market people were stuck with poorly designed ebooks that showed you how to build the HHO generator, but did not fully explain how to install or troubleshoot the device.
Until Bob Volk came along with his new HHO eBook and videos, many people experienced frustration and confusion while trying to apply this wonderful technology to improve their vehicle's gas mileage. The Hybrid Water Power system is the ONLY
system that has achieved consistent MPG improvements ranging anywhere from 20% to 130% better MPG in both gasoline and diesel engine vehicles.
Bob Volk - Designer and Publisher of the HybridWaterPower System
Bob Volk of is not only an inventor and researcher of hydrogen hybrid applications, but he is also an Internet Entrepreneur and has started/co-founded many sites. His experience in marketing and web design allowed him to produce such a high-quality ebook to teach people how to build their own Hydrogen Generators to save on gas and lower emissions.
His company, Transitional Technologies LLC, is an actual HHO Hybrid Company
dedicated to designing the best "DIY" HHO Kit instructions while providing customer support that is second to none. Bob Volk has been in the HHO business
for over 10 years and will not hesitate to put skeptics and nay-sayers in their place when it comes to proving
that HHO Technology is practical. When compared to other's selling "How to build a Hydrogen Generator" ebooks online, Bob Volk and his company are the leading edge in hydrogen hybrid technology.
I sent an email to Bob asking if he could elaborate on why HHO gas is so effective when used in conjuction with modern Internal Combustion Engines to improve fuel economy and reduce hydrocarbon emissions.
Below is Bob Volk's reply to my email about why HHO is so effective:
"Its quite simple once you get your head around it. Torque is what does the work in a vehicle, not horsepower. If you can find a way to increase torque in an engine then you will increase the MPG of that engine, no exceptions."
"HHO increases thermal efficiency because of increased flame speed, more violent explosion, shorter burn time and increased cylinder pressure. Last but not least, HHO allows for a "lean burn" situation, where you can tune your vehicle to use less fuel by leaning out the air/fuel mix and allowing the HHO gas to make up for the lack of fossil fuel. Since HHO gas burns 10x faster than gasoline or diesel fuel, this is not very hard to achieve in a modern Internal Combustion Engine."
"If you increase cylinder pressure you will increase torque which means more MPG. Increased flame speed also increases cylinder pressure which, once again, means more MPG. Shorter burn time means less heat transfer which means more mechanical power which, once again, gives you more MPG."
"Regardless of what all the Physics Guru's say.... these are the "laws of physics" for an ICE engine and I will stand behind HHO Technology and my product no matter how hard these skeptics and nay-sayers try
to give HHO and Hybrid Water Power a bad name."
Well, there you have it. When compared to all the other HHO Guides out there, Bob Volk and his HybridWaterPower
System are the leading edge
when it comes to utilizing HHO Technology to improve vehicle fuel efficiency.
Thanks again to Bob Volk
for creating the HybridWaterPower System
and sharing his extensive knowledge of HHO Technology with the world, giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy this fascinating concept for improving gas mileage and lowering harmful emissions.
