HAFC kit

Anybody here heard of this? http://www.befreetech.com/

It's one of these hydrogen booster setups. I think I am going to go ahead and try one of these out. I've looked at all sorts of fuel saving devices (including hydrogen boosters). This is the only one that guarantees a minimum of 50% increase in FE, or money back.

Well, this is true. I think I would do the installation myself, but I am not buying until I find out where their "trained mechanic" is located.

I remember this site from a long time back. From a quick look, it seems like the system is better than what I remember, but the cost is higher too. Like others said, 50% is hard to guarantee.

I wish you were driving a Diesel, because I think it would be a better gamble.

I would just say take more time doing more homework. See if you can google someone else's experience with the system.

Well, I've been doing research on hydrogen boost kits for a while now. This is the only one who guarantees the 50% increase, which I think is pretty bold of them. Not once on their website do you see under the little disclaimer:
*Values not guaranteed, subject to change without notice, etc.

So, I decided to go forward with it. I've been emailing the dealer of this kit with a lot of questions for two weeks now. They seem pretty serious about this, and if I interpret it correctly, I can return it for a full refund if I am not happy with it. My only concern is finding a trained technician. THen again, I am not too far away from Boston, so maybe my concern is not totally legitimate. I guess time will tell.
The website says the 50% minimum is more common with larger engines, and that smaller 4 cylinders like mine (2.2L) usually see much more. What I like is that this isn't JUST a hydrogen generator. It's got the computer, which Is suspect is how they are getting the gains they claim. It includes a fuel heater, magnets, and some other stuff I think. I am taking a risk, but I don't think it's a great risk at all.

Well the cost is a minimum $1200...but the system involves a fuel heater/magnets...fuel additives (acetone/xylol/other)...an H generator....and an EFIE type device. Seems legit to me...and my next car might have one installed.

They are training installers...so that shouldn't be an issue.

Hope you go ahead with it.

Combine this system and some driving techniques and what you got?
