The big trial run

My buddy installed a DRY CELL SYSTEM IN HIS DP IT HAS A 350HP CAT MOTOR SYSTEM IS PRETTY COOL. After a trial run of 60 miles and some fine tuning of the computer controller that comes with the kit we figured maybe 4 miles a gallon more gonna be alot more fine tuning tho hes heading out in morning for a 2000 mile round trip heres some pics of it if all goe's well i might be doing it to my Alfa leisure 330HP CAT, fingers crossed. Its a 2005 Itasco Merridian 40ft 350 HP CAT MOTOR hopefully we wont get any bad news all computer controlled so.

inserts Hydrogen & Oxygen gas mix into turbo air intake after running threw dryer, to give better fuel mileage computer module controlled to be safe.Uses a quart reservoir of water and potasium hydroxide mix 1.5 cups to go 800 miles should take with setting on module. Fingers crossed, once fine tuning is done on this test run the manufacturer said could possibly get between 9.5 and 13 miles a gallon .

Might be playing with fire. Is anybody watching exhaust gas temps, burnt pistons can be an ugly sight.

It has a computer that regulates all of it and watches temps and controls it,also controls how much voltage is put to the unit to control amount of gas made, ran cat cable up to dash to the little computer and he can control amount injected only takes a little to make a big difference in fuel mileage all the bad has been thought about and covered. Not liquid gas, its vapor gas in the air intake for the turbo. Very small amount and the module hooked to the DP computer tricks it into running leaner to use less fuel and the computer for the set up makes up the difference in the hydrogen gas . Which creates better fuel mileage,no worries about piston burning,and fires its all closly controlled.

The bottle he got was about 12 ounces at the drug store. Cost about 15 dollars and will make about 2 gallons , will get him about 2200 miles when mixed right.

Fuel-Efficiency Mod Pay-Off Schedule
Using this website please let us know your return on investment/payback. I've been trying to find reasonable MPG mods. If they under $200 and payback in less than 2 years or 10k miles it makes sense. Otherwise you have to keep the vehicle longer or use it more than the average person.
By the way, using sensible driving techniques, I get 9-9.5 on my less expensive gasser.

For him he puts about 5500 miles a year on. We have to see exactly what
mileage he gets when he gets back will let you know.The system cost
675.00 plus 125.00 wiring about it. Should pay for itself in 15 months time with him he might put more miles if gets better mileage you know.
Will keep you updated really curious about how it does myself.
