HHO - uses power from your alternator to crack a miniscule amount of H & O from a tank of water.   And if the H & O are stored in one vessel, anything can set off an explosion.  But you consume more power via the alternator & battery, then you get back in mileage.
 Or spend the $300 and prove me wrong.

I am way to tight to buy something I even think I can make, but I was wondering if anyone had any real results or is it just to good to be true.
I almost forgot I'm not tight any more I'm just green! ( lol )

There is a reason these systems never have independent test data to support their claims.
It's "free energy" all over again.

Sorry guys, we all wish there was a free lunch, and some go after it in spite of the physics to the contrary.

Sorta like 2+2=4 while the other 2+2=4 huh.

When I hear "conspiracy" I always get a funny feeling in my throat.  Like the tide is going to flow in the wrong direction putting my nostrils at risk.  OK, I know companies do buy other companies so they can take that company to the dump but if you could improve fuel economy by 5% - how many billions do we spend on gasoline in this country per year? - One of the car companies in a resource starved country would be on the band wagon.

My guess is that if you determined the miniscule amount of oxygen these units develop and believed it would increase mileage by 5% we'd all have oxygen injectors on our vehicles - injectors connected to a storage tank.  I wonder how much power it takes to run one of these revolutionary devices?  I wonder how many electrical systems have been KO'd at one level or another by faulty no fused installations?

A nice light morning rant.  I like it.
