this question is primarily for Mr Firedome............i have a background in molecular chemistry as well as physics. my initial plan was to build a hydrogen hybrid. its already in the works. would 2 fuels, used at the same time, classify my vehicle ( in california) as a hybrid?
 
I'm messing with that on my Diesel.  My problem is, there is so much vacuum on the intake, pre-turbo, it sucks the tank dry.  But when it is running and I have 5 Gallons of water in reserve, it runs like a bat out of hell and gets around 27 MPG.  Not bad for 8000 #.  I have to come up with a different tank for the plates now.

Good gas mileage?
 
Let me get this straight. You basically have water injection for your turbo diesel and it really likes to suck the water. Are you converting it to steam so as to atomize it better so it will break down to hydrogen and oxygen more efficiently or just a mist of water into the intake side of the turbo?

No Duh   I have a Hydrogen Generator.  It runs on water and baking soda.  I wasn't planning on it being water injection.  The vacuum is too great in the intake box.  I can't put it on the down side of the turbo. . . The pressure is way too high

I'm not going to keep arguing, so here it is from the CA.gov site:
 




Currently, smog inspections are required for all vehicles except diesel powered vehicles manufactured prior to 1998 or with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVWR) of more than 14,000 lbs, electric, natural gas powered vehicles over 14,000 lbs, hybrids, motorcycles, trailers, or gasoline powered vehicles 1975 and older.

A different tank for the plates. Are the plates themselves wearing down faster or does the tank just go dry faster than you thought it should?

Ah, mystery solved.  Nope, can't be done.
 
There was a guy who stuffed a 392 into a '79 Pickup in the Bay Area and tried to sell it for two years in Hemmings.
 
It's probably still available.

Plates aren't wearing down.  They'll go a while, stainless.  The tank is being sucked dry by the intake.  Once the electrolyte is gone, it does nothing.

I tried to get my Windsor to run on Potatoes and Mars bars.

Now I can't fill up the car with fuel since I pushed potatoes in the filler neck trying to get them in the tank and the Mars bars messed up my piston return springs..



Also I was wondering.. I have an 8 cylinder engine.. which cylinder is the Master Cylinder?

Kerry and Joe make responses about the American people being too stupid to vote, and this just gives them that much more ammunition.

I would run porpane as a supplement if it weren't so expensive and hard to find while travelling.  At least with the generator, I could have a unlimited supply.

Just add some adjustable power bands



Then strap on a boost bar and you will make some hug power

glad to see theres someone with half a brain out there. the hydrogen generator, or electrolisys unit, is a great idea. i started building one in my spart time. its finished now and running in my 91 ram. gets around 49 mpg with it. and yes, it sucks up a lot of water. i put a 2nd gas tank in it and used it for the reserve water tank. its ideal because its got the electric pump and i can hook a regulsr gas guage to it. its working well. i didnt go the baking soda rout though. i use regular tap water because it has all of the minerals in it that act as electrolytes. no need for baking soda. thats why yours is gumming up. use some CLR to clean it out every 500 miles or so.
