Hydrogen information Q&A


Hydrogen information

  • Hydrogen is less flammable than gasoline.
  • The self-ignition temperature of hydrogen is 550 degrees Celsius. Gasoline varies from 228-501 degrees Celsius, depending on the grade.
  • Hydrogen disperses quickly. Being the lightest element (fifteen times lighter than air), hydrogen rises and spreads out quickly in the atmosphere.
  • So when a leak occurs, the hydrogen gas quickly becomes so sparse that it cannot burn. Even when ignited, hydrogen burns upward, and is quickly consumed.
  • By contrast, materials such as gasoline and diesel vapors, as well as natural gas, are heavier than air, and will not disperse, remaining a flammable threat for much longer.
  • Hydrogen is non-toxic. Hydrogen is a naturally-occurring element in the atmosphere. By comparison, all petroleum fuels are asphyxiates, and are poisonous to humans.
  • Hydrogen combustion produces only water. When pure hydrogen is burned in pure oxygen, only pure water is produced. When a hydrogen engine burns, it actually cleans the ambient air by completing combustion of the unburned hydrocarbons that surround us. Compared with the toxic compounds (carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrogen sulfide) produced by petroleum fuels, the products of hydrogen burning are much safer.
  • Hydrogen can be produced more efficiently than what scientists and schools have told us.
  • This technology has been around since the mid-1800's. Back before the take off of the industrial revolution, hydrogen was used to power some of our factories, but oil and coal was preferred as it was cheap.

Lifespan of a Hydrogen Generator

The lifespan of a hydrogen generator is determined by several factors.

  1. The quality and thickness of the stainless steel.
  2. The amount of current that the generator is using.
  3. The type of electrolyte that the generator is using.

Unfortunately, hydrogen generators do not last forever. If they are constructed correctly, some can last up to five years or longer. If they are not constructed correctly, the life span could be reduced to as little as 90 days.

Fortunately at www.auto-hydrogen.com we do not use inferior steel, electrolyte or materials. Our product has a proven long life span.

The proper material to use is 316-L stainless steel. This can last up to five times longer than other grades of stainless. The L stands for low carbon.

This grade has very good anti-corrosion characteristics. Even if it is thin, it can last for years in a properly designed hydrogen generator. All our Units are manufactured from 316-L stainless steel, the best kind of stainless to use for this application.

The total amount of current that passes through the cell is one of the major determining factors on how quickly the plates or electrodes will deteriorate.

Using a pulse width modulator (PWM) can reduce current flow, which can extend the life span of your stainless steel plates. Also, using the right amount of voltage between each plate is very important.

The electrolyte that is used is also important. Some people are using more corrosive electrolytes, such as; sodium hydroxide or baking soda, but this can shorten the life span of your hydrogen generator.

"Saving Our Earth One Fuel Tank at a Time"


Q: In your opinion is HHO on demand a good alternative fuel source?

A: Definitely...Why not save gas with a HHO Cell fuel conversion kit? It is a proven technology, easy to install, and costs around $650. There are no safety issues involved. Warranties are unaffected. Being water, the fuel is free. The hydrogen fraction process produces gas which burns about 5 times better than gasoline, and the savings with a hydrogen fuel conversion kit are between 25% and 60%.

What more do you need?

Q: How far can I drive before I have to add water to the system?

A: Every vehicle is a little different, but on the average you have to add about one cup of distilled water every 800 kms to keep the water tank topped off.

When you top off the unit with distilled water you do not have to add additional electrolyte, just distilled water!

Q: Will my engine rust on the inside by using this technology?

A: NO, definitely not, You won't need to worry about your engine rusting or locking up from having water vapor flowing through it.

You might know this but you have water running through your engine now, in the cooling system, and in your exhaust from burning gasoline and natural condensation.

You will notice a quieter and much smoother engine operation and smoother gearshifts. This is due to the effect that water has on the combustion cycle inside your engine.

Q: How much of an increase can I expect to get on my mileage?

A: You should expect a more fuel efficient vehicle and improve your gas mileage by at least 25% increase, the average increase is between 30% to 40% and some enjoy up to 60%, depending on your vehicle and driving habits. This includes both city and highway driving conditions.

Q: Will this product Void my cars warranty?

A: No! Conditions that may void a vehicle's warranty are specified in a law called the Moss-Magnusson Act U.S which stipulates dealers cannot void warranties because vehicles have aftermarket parts.

If the dealer can prove a particular aftermarket part caused a particular failure, they can disallow the claim for that issue only.

For example, if your engine fails, the dealer can't refuse to fix it because the car has aftermarket wheels. However, if the engine has been modified, they may have a case and may deny the claim. We don't modify engines in any way.

All Sensor or Fuel System modifications can void a manufacturer's warranty, if the modification caused a failure. The dealer still has to prove the modification caused the failure.

To date, there have been no failures caused by using HHO as an alternative fuel.

Q: Is this HHO on Demand Technology Dangerous?

A: It CAN be Very dangerous... If you do stupid things! Just like gasoline is dangerous, so are all fuels.

There are safety rules and they are quite simple, but you have to know them and apply them. HHO-On-Demand technology is NOT more dangerous than the usual automotive technologies involving fuel, cooling, etc.

For instance we all know that the radiator is essential to cool down the engine, and without it the car will go up in smoke. However, if you open the radiator cap when hot, you're going to get hurt, is that right? The danger is not in the radiator; the danger is in ignorance and carelessness and not following the safety rules.

HHO-On-Demand means that we are not storing HHO gas! We're using all the HHO gas that we're producing, immediately. There is no HHO storage tank to explode in case of an accident. Hydrogen is also less flammable than gasoline. Gasoline can burst into flames at 228 degrees C, however, hydrogen won't ignite until 550 degrees C. It's far better for the environment, and perfectly safe for you and your passengers.

Q: Will this product work on a Diesel Engine?

A: YES! From our experience, we have learned diesels LOVE HHO!

On the average, diesel vehicles get around 40% better mileage. In our opinion, diesel installation is much simpler as well! If you have a Turbo Charger - the device must be connected BEFORE THE TURBO.

You will get specific diagrams and instructions when you order the HHO Cell System. The HHO Cell will work with any type of fuel or delivery system, even on an old carburetor engine.

Q: Will this affect my engines horsepower?

A: Oh Yeah! You will notice a big difference... Running HHO gas through your engine is like running 140 octane fuel.

The HHO Cell will help not only eliminate carbon deposits caused by unburned gasoline - but will actually steam-clean your engine.

Over the first few days you will notice that your engine will become smoother and quieter, then it will level off at a new level!

The water changes the combustion cycle into a more even or "round" cycle. This happens immediately upon installation, and from that moment on, your engine works in a new way. The effect is not only less noise, it's also less vibration, resulting in reduced strain on the transmission (thus smoother gear shifts), cleaner pistons and valves, and generally better engine operation.

The HHO Cell actually cools down the engine. The HHO Cell System widens the torque range and makes the vehicle accelerate faster. After acceleration, you don't have to press the gas pedal as much to keep going.

Imagine yourself seeing, hearing and feeling the changes described above happening in your very own car or truck.

We invite you to test this technology for yourself just like we have done, and just like 1000's of vehicle owners and fleet managers from around the world have done

Q: Why do your kits costs less than others?

A: It's because we manufacture and produce all of our own products.

Because of the large volume of units that we produce it allows us to buy our materials in large quantities to get the very best deal and streamline our production and pass the savings on to you.

It would make no sense for us to have the best product out there if it were so expensive that the average consumer could not afford it!

Q: Will the HHO Cell system still work in freezing temperatures?

A: Yes... The HHO Cell is designed to operate in all weather conditions, without freezing.

Q: My car doesn't have much space under the hood, where can I install the HHO Cell?

A: There is always some place a unit can be installed.

Our HHO generator is one of the smallest on the market, the size of a motorcycle battery.

Sometimes it takes a bit of creativity to find a location, but it will be worth it in the long run!

Q: How much would it cost me to have a mechanic install this?

A: Installation to your vehicle can be EASILY done by any good mechanic, or by yourself. Mechanics we have found, like the idea and respond well once they see the installation instructions.

Installation depends very much on your vehicle and the hourly rate of your mechanic. However we can estimate your installation will take between 1.5 hours up to 3.5 hours.

Your mechanic will see how simple it is to install, and in most cases will quote you for one hour of labor.

Q: Is the HHO Cell easy to install? Can I install it myself?

A: The HHO Cell is easy to install. With the complete easy to follow installation instructions that are included with your kit, the installation process should take around an hour to an hour and a half. If you run into any problems simply call our installation support line and we will be glad to assist you.
