In the USA it is against Federal Law (the Clean Air Act) [CAA] to tamper with or modify an engine fueling and/or emission control system in any way without a waiver from an EPA authorized governmental agency.  One such agency the federal governement usually defers to in terms of the power to enforce the CAA is the  California Air Resources board, [CARB] an arm of the State of California.

 

No matter what you might want to believe, if ANY device you put on a vehicle tampers with or adjusts the fueling or emission control system in any way - even to get LOWER emissions is not EPA or CARB approved, it is illegal, and the installer, and/or seller could face heavy fines and in some cases jail time.

 

Our product falls under the principles allowed of CARB Executive Orders [EO's] for exemption, and there are only eight EO's which allow such a product to be sold,   They are D-643, 634-1, 634-2, 680, 669, 673, 685 and 681.

 

Our product, unlike most on the market, do not shorten the life of OEM emission control components, and works WITH the OEM system to allow INSANE fuel mileage to be achieved both lawfully and safely for the engine.

 

We are the only company to truly lawfully and safely bi-fuel an engine on simultaneous fuels at the same time.  How is this important?  Well because, if one of those fuels is FREE, then your cost per mile to operate - also much akin to miles-per-gallon; just went through the MPG true cost of  BTU/weight consumption equation of propelling an object down a flat surface glass ceiling.

 

That is the TRUE MPG number people are concerned about - operating costs per mile - not some much MPG - because MPG is only a function of cost per gallon of the fuel.

 

In America, the ONLY lawful way to vend these kind of products is to:
1. Get them working on the vehicle it will be vended for
2. Have them tested under law for increased emissions and OBD interference (there can be NO increased emissions from the OEM level or OBD interference of check engine lights or internal codes thrown - OR change of the OEM emission system OR decrease in reliability of the OEM system)
3. Provide NO interface to the end user that they can tamper with or "re-tune" emissions themselves.
4. Get an EPA waiver and/or CARB EO number to sell the items as a full product for the vehicles it is designed for
5. Distribute the FULL Product for vending in the manner needed to maintain strict compliance to the EPA or EO waiver

NO American automotive parts or items re-seller or distributor or parts store or mechanic can - or will take - a non-EPA or CARB EO'ed product for sale or installation

Few foreign companies can get EPA or EO waivers. We are the ONLY American company who does products as OEM parts - LAWFULLY

 

This is what we do.

Everyone wants to claim there is a great conspiracy to prevent Hydrogen use in an Internal combustion engine as a wide spread motor fuel. It is not so - it is a logistics nightmare of safety, design, balance of use and proportion to potable water for consumption of animal and plant life on the planet.

 

First, putting that above aside, you need to get enough of the gas to feed the engine for the size. Second, since it's best ratio is around 32 to1, you need to pack enough air in to get a good bang for the buck. Third, since Hydrogen is such a small diatomic atom, it can get right past the compression rings and collect in the crankcase, where it won't explode, it will just light the oil spray in the engine on fire. That is not a problem in any dangerous way, it just leaves a coke pile in the lifter valley eventually. Fourth to make enough Hydrogen to power a Chevy 350 the Hydrogen generator needed is sizeable. That would be quite a bit of DC power needed to make that much gas per minute, and that does not mention the speed of the water-based fuel stock consumption that needs to happen to to make it all keep going. Finally since when Hydrogen burns it turns back to water vapor, - steam - you need an extra hot spark and extra tough spark plug and ignition system to take that kind of hot spark. (A major spark plug manufacturer has patented one by the way)

 

Since this is the only fuel that can be re-used, one must minimize fuel loss by recapturing it. Sounds crazy to most of you - because you do not think like HYDROGEN BURNS - back to water. The other two issues are condensation at the right temperature near a road surface by a road-full of cars; that would create a fog trail, and black ice creation in sub-freezing environment from water dripping from exhaust pipes. The biggest question is to how much of that water based liquid depletes liquid levels of the worlds bodies of water. Previously the Earth had huge reserves of ice-packs at the polar regions - and they are melting now and the seas are rising - so putting a lot of it in fuel tanks would help with the mechanical issue of rising seas; however the temperature of the seas is what largely controls the weather.

 

Mankind just does not know enough (or wants to believe the reality of any greenhouse effect caused by Carbon Dioxide) to even begin to wonder how fast any abrupt down turn in fossil fuel burning will impact the planet that would tend to go more Oxygen-Rich and pollutant free.

 

One thing is for sure, without comprehensive - SMART laws to address the use of any water based liquid as a fuel, mankind will head to catastrophe and even - yes - War faster than anyone or any Bovine can pass gas.

 

Putting all that aside for a moment, our sensor technology we now use to control engines, is decidedly carbon based. That is the sensors measure exhaust gases expecting carbon to be a component as a standard of the exhaust to use to measure. While a wide band oxygen sensor can measure the exhaust gases from a more pure Hydrogen burning engine, it needs an exhaust gas temperature probe to do so accurately, and there lies a major rub - an accurate exhaust gas temperature reading system in a wide and varied ambient temperature which will cause the exhaust gas to fluctuate widely.

 

Without explaining how, needless to say we have considered all of this. It ain't rocket science, but it is harder than you think.
