Read Blog dated 18th June 2017 for – The greatest automotive story this century has been the “Dieselgate” conspiracy. Not only has it brought down the established regime at VW, but it’s shaken the very foundation of diesel powered transportation.
A Must Read PDF – Using Hydrogen in Dual Fuel Compression Ignition Engine– CLICK LINK BELOW
1-This investigation establishes that hydrogen can be utilized in compression ignition engines operating them on dual-fuel principle.
2-Such operation improves thermal efficiency, makes the engine run with very lean equivalence ratios, which means very low engine emissions.
3-This operation results in lower exhaust gas temperatures leading to longer live of components such as exhaust valves.
4-Increasing hydrogen volumetric fractions accompanied with injection timing retarding, due to increasing in the flame velocity till the air is completely utilized. Further increase in HVF causes knock to appear, and OIT must be retarded sharply, which reduce the bp resulted from engine.
5-Knocking in the engine limits the proportion of energy input that can be supplied through hydrogen. The occurrence of knock in this type of hydrogen addition operation may be due to hydrogen rapid rate of pressure rise or flaming particle that is left behind due to bad engine scavenging.
6-When engine was run with hydrogen addition, bp was improved. The effect of hydrogen addition on the power enhancement was not quantitatively but qualitatively by the means of combustion improvement
Hydrogen generator kits as used on trucking, cars, generators, trawlers, boats, shipping, power supplies , mining and farming to reduce fuel costs and make engines run longer and cleaner.

22. Selection of electrolyte for hydrogen production
One of the main worries in any electrolysis is the corrosion of the electrodes and deposition of iron oxide on the bottom of the electrolysis enclosure
IN the generation of Hydrogen gas as used by many experimenters , commonly an alkali solution of sodium hydroxide or better still a dilute solution of potassium hydroxide is used to increase the hydrogen gas production
Many say why not simply use a high hydrogen ion concentration to produce more gas. That is a fatal floor as it immediately leads to corrosion, for it is the hydrogen ion concentration that starts the oxidation of the electrodes , rather than the dissolved oxygen concentration in the electrodes.
A Solution which is alkali has an extremely high hydroxide ion concentration which immediately react with and neutralize the hydrogen ion concentration in the solution thus preventing corrosion / oxidation of the electrodes.
That does not mean that you must make a very strong alkali solution as alkali solutions are very toxic and have other problems concerning maintenance of strong seals to prevent gas and electrolyte loss.
I have even heard the suggestion of using ammonia or ammonium hydroxide ( a weak alkali) solutions to increase the gas as ammonium has a very high mole ration of Hydrogen per molecule of ammonia (NH4) compared to water (H2O).
Once again people don’t seem to understand that the generation of hydrogen is not from the hydrogen ions , but rather from the Hydroxide ions (OH) . Initially Ammonium hydroxide releases the hydroxide ions for hydrogen gas production and releases ammonium ions into the solution which then further hydrolyze to release a low concentration of hydrogen ions that can lead to corrosion . The general rule is the salt of a weak alkali when hydrolysed produces a weak acid , while the salt of a weak acid( such as acetate from acetic acid) will produce a weak base.
SO as you can see the selection of the alkali to use in an electrolysis reaction is essential to stop corrosion. Do not mix electrolytes unless you know exactly what your expect to happen . Don’t Just Guess … Guessing can destroy electrodes.
Don’t use ammonia solutions and above all avoid acids.
Some “Bright individuals “ have suggested using salt water or tap water in their electrolysis reactions
NO NO NO…. chlorine from salt water and fluorine from tap water will not generate Hydrogen ions in solution , but will provide an alternative oxidation pathway for the corrosion of electrodes even when the concentration of Hydrogen ion concentration in the solution is low. Pure distilled water must always be used for electrolysis. That means you cant use rain water from a sea side location, You cant use rainwater that has been collected off your old rusty or dirty metal / tilled roof. You cant use deionized water of filtered water. USE distilled water mixed with potassium hydroxide to produce a dilute alkali solution.
