Has anyone tried one of these conversion kits? I've heard good things from some of the mech. in my area. Any input? I've a 2008 4.0 Ranger.

I have not tried it yet but if you want to make one just go to motherearthnews.com they have talked and installed a buch over the last few years.
Good Luck:bye:

My credo
If you can't go through it or around it, then go over it.
not sure about about gas engines ....... but I got a friend with one on his 1985 peterbilt with a 600hp B model cat............. got 5 mpg before he installed it ...... gets over 7 mpg now ...... paid for itself in 4 months........

Search and ye-shall find.

There are many threads about this.


Me and one of my buddies are going to be doing it to a '84 carbed 2.8L Ranger in a couple weeks. Have to get it running slightly better first.

Hey man take pics on that 84, and let us know if it works well. I was thinking about trying it out on mine.

The whole HHO gas thing is a scam. It takes more power to create the hydrogen and oxygen than you get by burning it in an ICE. As for the claim that it "improves combustion", that would be easily identifiable in the lab. The fact that nobody has made a major announcement that would reinforce this "theory" means that it's a load of BS.

Try basic physics for a change. Do you really think that using an inefficient internal combustion engine to turn an inefficient alternator to produce the power required to split the water into hydrogen and oxygen will somehow produce more energy than you put in?

I can see the arguments now. It's improving combustion efficiency, the government doesn't want you to know this secret to better fuel economy, my foil hat is too tight becasue the "man" is restricting the supply of aluminum, etc, etc. Failure to properly research and educate yourself about the inner workings is not an excuse to proclaim success on the grounds of "it just works". If you were to actually learn the physics and chemistry behind what this whole scam is proposing, you'd realize how flawed this whole setup is.

Acetone In Fuel Said to Increase Mileage

Readily-available chemical added to gas tank in small proportion improves the fuel's ability to vaporize completely by reducing the surface tension that inhibits vaporization of some fuel droplets.

Me and a few friends are trying this right now it looks like it works testing it on a few different cars so far i have noticed a slight increase 20-30 miles per tank in my 97 ranger

Well people are claiming anywhere from 5-40mpg increases with HHO, you say you get 20-30 increase, why not combine the 2? If you get 20-30 more miles, and built an HHO, then why should you not get 25-70miles more? might be more in the middle though, like 45 more miles to the gallon,if it works, you have a patent idea, just don't forget me :icon_thumby:.

Too bad you missed Chemistry so you could take all those extra Physics classes. The "power required to split the water into hydrogen and oxygen" is just a few amps. About the same if not less that your cigarette lighter uses. It's not like you need a nuclear reactor in the bed of the truck to pull this off.

Then, you're only getting a few dozen watts of power at most. 1 HP = 748 Watts. Physics works. Pay attention.

But we are not looking for watts to the gallon, we are looking for more miles to the gallon. What, are we driving Electric cars and no one told me? When the electric car is all that is available, I believe we can worry more about Watts then.

Umm, reno, if you aren't looking for watts, how are you going to move your vehicle?

If you get no power from combustion, you're wasting your fuel. By definition.
