Hydrogen/oxygen fuel injector

I was searching for for a conversion to compressed natural gas and ran across this product that claims a possible 60% fuel savings.and increased horsepower. http://globalenergydevices.com/products. Has anyone tried it? Based on the claim I could realize a "possible" 4 mpg.

All of us learned a long time ago to ignore these scams.

Contact Ford for the conversion parts need to go to CNG. It is an option on late model Ford truck/motorhome chassis. If you decide to go that route, you will find limited fueling stations and severely decreased range for the amount of fuel you can actually store - not to mention the weight penalty for carrying the tanks. CNG appeals to city owned fleets as they can install a central fueling station and range usually isn't an issue.

You best way to increase your mileage is to slow down. Between 60 and 62 mph seems to be a pretty sweet spot for the Ford chassis.

Are you interested in buying a bridge in Alaska? Seriously this is nothing more than a water injector. Save your money.

That is kind of what I figured. Seems to be the same principle as you get on a rainy day the engine seems to run better which would mean the 5 star tune would be a lot better investment.

Thanks.

10-4 Good buddy You get what you pay for. I put a water injector on my 1978 Monaco / Dodge, and almost hydrolocked the motor.

BTW. just did a circuit of the US: Melbourne FL to San Antonio TX to Albuquerque NM to Las Vegas NV to Helena MT to Yellowstone NP thru SD to Sioux Falls. Down to AL to GA then back home to Melbourne. Averaged 7.8 mpg towing a fiat pop. Wife wouldn't let the gas go below a half tank so we topped the tank every 200 miles. Never used more than 30 gal which left me 50 gal to find a gas station. 8(.

The H-OH injection systems have been around since I was a teenager under different names... Do they work? Questionable, Do they damage the engine, Very likely.

Consider this: IF they worked as well as they claim, and since the govermanurant has mandated higher and higher MPG for vehicles.. Why are they not already standard?

Hydrogen/oxygen fuel injector

CNG is a great way to go read my $500 from MI to CA. on this forum. But it needs a epa kit and has to be done legally. For more information on CNG study
CNGCHAT.COM also look at the CNG stations around US and at the price of CNG.
MY average cost for CNG ended up being $1.98 and i did all the mountains on CNG. If you put enough miles on it my be worth it to you. Also you engine will run cleaner on CNG but you should at this time only go bi-fuel with gas backup.
That way you have the best of two worlds.
