I had the fuse cover off so you can see where the positive wire went. It is tapped in with an ignition fuse so that it is only hot when the key is on and engine is running. That way it is not making hydrogen when the key is off.

The thing doesn't pull more than 8-10 amps.

I'm still in the process of testing and fine tuning it to give me the best results. I hope to be getting a scangauge soon, because doing mileage the slow way is arduous.

Doing mileage the slow way is the only way to know for sure. The Scangauge is great for a lot of stuff, including instant and short-term average MPG readings, but it's not conclusive and you can't begin to say something works until you've got a few tanks of gas on it.

You are right about that.....good points to consider.

Well, I've got about a 2mpg gain on it so far...averaging 18.6 before on the highway, and now 20.6. I've still got a lot of testing and experimentation with different combination's of things before I land on something that works best for my truck.


My goal is to get my Tundra 4.7 to over 30mpg..........possible? I think so.

one time i drive home in pouring rain for 120 miles and got insanely good mileage, the reason was the mist in the air, unless you heat the water there will be no mist, see cooling system driven water injection heaters, and get back to me on how well that works

dont know if that would really work btw, I would think you would need to enter this steam pre intake temp sensor

I used to have a drag race engine in one of my cars. A turbocharged 2.0 running a huge carburetor. At full boost it saw 27psi and on a fast pass it would drink close to 1.5 gallons of water/meth. it made huge power and when we did a tear down the engine was perfectly clean.

Steam and mist are two different things. Steam won't do much for you but a water mist, as long as it enters the chamber as a liquid, has the potential to help just the same way EGR does but to a greater extent. The water will keep chamber temps down(leading to less loss through the block and head surfaces) and in the conversion to a gas will assist in pushing the piston down the cylinder.
