If you want a lot of hydrogen you got to waste a lot of amps. Japanese are now starting to build cars that don't run accesories on the motor. Power steering, air conditioner, brakes, cams and etc. It gives a good boost in mpg.
I agree. You'd be better off getting one of those turbo-like alternators to power your accessories than using a hydrogen generator.
Hey Matt, what is this 'turbo-like alternator' you mentioned? Is there a technical term I could search under for more info?
