Re: 1982 GMC 2.8 liter HHO

Okay, so I personally can see that there is a possibility that HHO could help. I am not positive it does, but I know the physics of an ICE are more complicated than x joules in, y joules out.
That aside, because this is not a debate thread,
What are you using for cells? Voltage per gap?
8Amps * 14V= 112 watts if your using a very high ef HHO cell you could be getting 6mmw or 672ml per min.
From what I've read; you should be shooting for 2 to 4 times that, and if your cell's aren't that eff, you'll need even more.

One thing that I think is quite important (and most people don't think about) is the ratio of gas production to engine load. It's a crude set up to have it producing the same at idle as under heavy acceleration. Also having it shut off during DFCO would be a good idea.

The same cells I have been using for the last few years in my Lincoln, but cut the number from 12 to 4 cells. Each has a titanium plate and a stainless plate 3" x 3/4" spaced about 1/64 inch apart with nylon washers and nylon bolts. Many weeks were spent bench testing.

This is going slow.... new upholstery distracted me for a bit, but the solar panel is mounted behind the cab with the controller under it connected to a good size deep cycle battery. Output from the controller will run the HHO, NOT the battery. Here is why... the controller tries to run the load from the Sun without tapping into the battery if possible. With more Sun, it splits the output to load and battery,

I added a 60-0-60 ammeter to the dash but only measures the alternator output. (4 amps idle, 20 amps with lights on.) This confirmed a suspicion I have had for years. There is a nasty surge from the alternator during starting.

Will probable wire the HHO to the original battery first so I can see the alternator load while driving.

Re: 1982 GMC 2.8 liter HHO

Any updates?

Also what kind of mmw numbers are you getting from these cells?
