KUALA LUMPUR-- The government is carrying out research to study the use hydrogen for the production of electricity and to be used as a fuel source for the automotive industry, the Dewan Rakyat was told on Monday.
Deputy minister of Science, Technology and Innovations Fadillah Yusof said a study known as Hydrogen powered engine, hydrogen generation and diesel engine efficiency enhancement was being carried out to determine its use for static engines like generators to produce electricity and for engines used by fishermen for their boats.
“The first test had shown that the use of Hydrogen can help reduce the dependence on diesel by 25 percent. The project, being carried out through a RM1.489 million allocation that was approved in 2008, is expected to be completed by next year,” said Fadillah when answering a question by Dr Mohd Hayati Othman (PAS-Pendang) who wanted to know the development in efforts to use water as an alternative energy source.
Fadillah also said that the new technology being studied was to separate the Hydrogen and Oxygen atoms from the water then use of Hydrogen gas to reduce the use of diesel energy.
He added that however, a prototype car using energy from water, cannot be developed into a commercial scale due to certain constraints that need to be addressed and studied carefully.
“Among the constraints are the storage system for the hydrogen, plus the production and distribution of Hydrogen for vehicles using hydro-fuel.
“It also involves the setting up of standards and infrastructure for vehicles using hydro-fuel and the electric system that can be used for hybrid vehicles,” said Fadillah.
Fadillah added that similar obstacles were also faced by countries like the United States and Europe.
“We must first overcome the obstacles before hydro-fuel can be widely used.
Hydrogen is the most versatile of renewable energy resources — a universal fuel that can be burned in an engine or used in a fuel cell to power vehicles, utility power plants and anything else that uses electrical energy. It will eliminate our dependence on other energy source,” he said.
When burned in an engine, hydrogen is about 30 percent more efficient than gasoline and when a fuel cell is used to power a vehicle, the fuel cell is 100 percent to 200 percent more efficient than gasoline.
Hydrogen engines do not emit carbon dioxide, and the only byproduct of fuel cells is clean water.

Simple Electronic Fuel Injection Enhancer adjuster wires inline between the oxygen sensor and ECU. You need to cut only the prior (before the catalytic converter) O2 sensor's signal wire . This device does not require a higher degree of skill it has a basic installation can be performed in 20 minutes without any special expertise. If car has one prior and one post oxygen sensor, you have to wire up EFIE adjuster to the prior sensor only. Two EFIE units will be required for each prior oxygen sensor if dual exhaust installed with two upstream sensors before the catalytic converter.
*This EFIE is not intended to be a fuel saver by itself.You should install a device that is designed to get more energy out of the same fuel,such as a hydrogen gas electrolyzer, afuel vapor production unit,water menthol injector, or other device that gets more power out of the same fuel by increasing the efficiency of the burn.
1. Find the signal wire of (prior - upstream) oxygen sensor according to the chart below.
2. Splice the signal wire and contact the green wire the o2 sensor side, the Blue cable to the other end to ECU.
COLOR MATCHING by 1,2,3,4 wire O2 sensors:
|WIRES of O2 SENSOR||STOCK||ACTION||STOCK||ACTION||STOCK||ACTION||STOCK||ACTION|
|signal||blue||contact here||white||contact here||green||contact here||black||contact here|
1. If the engine is fitted with two precat oxygen sensors in each bank before the catalytic converter, you will need two units.
2. If the sensors are positioned in line you have to wire up the chip to the prior sensor only.
3.Some car may vary in wire color of the Narrowband sensor check & re-check the signal wire have voltage readings constantly fluctuating between 0~1 volt.

There is no such thing as a generator that will always be the best under all circumstances. However, the two most important factors when comparing generators are their efficiency, in other words, how much gas generated for a certain amount of power consumed, and also whether they overheat or not. Some boosters, claim impressive amounts of liters per minute gas production, but they do not tell us at how many amps were used and at what water temperature the measurement was taken. Knowing how many amps are needed is important because it tells us both how efficient the cell is as well as whether the design is likely
to have overheating problems. The less efficient a cell is, the more there is current leakage and as a result the more generation of waste heat. (So for instance generating 3 LPM @ 35A is less energy efficient than generating 2 LPM @ 20A, and one should not just look at the LPM!).
Knowing at what water temperature the reading was taken will tell us if the gas was a high quality gas or maybe contained a lot of water vapors. As a rule of thumb, a series cell design is the most efficient design for straight forward brute force electrolysis. An open bath design will never be able to be as efficient as the Hydroxgas Drycell design. The biggest problem with an open bath design is that because of excessive current leakage, it usually overheats rapidly and typically gets to 95+ degrees
Celsius within +-2 hours.
If an open bath design booster is not constructed from material that can handle those temperatures, you have a problem (e.g. PVC plastic which is only good for 60 degrees C and please take note the engine chamber itself generate heat above 80 degrees C & not mention that you stack in the traffic jam) Excessive heat also means energy is lost unnecessary with resulting lower efficiency. So a simple but very effective way to have an honest comparison between two generators is to put them next to each other and let
them run at the same amps @ same amount of water volume @ same voltages. Yes! In order to make an accurate efficiency comparison there should be no external water cooling device or mechanism present (e.g. Heat sinks, cooling fans, radiators, siphons etc.) so we removed the HHO cooler while testing our Drycell. The generator that has the highest water temperature after two hours will always be the least efficient while the generator with the lowest water temperature will always be the more efficient design! It is actually the energy that is wasted that heats up the water, and hotter water simply means more energy is wasted which could have been used to generate more hydroxy. Our 13/11plates drycell have undergone 8+hour testing with 13.8V @10 Amp 32 degree C surrounding temperature @ 950 ML of water the temperature was maintain stable at 2+ hours<45>
ALL Hydrogen systems will overheat after an hour or two of driving (that's right, even our 9 plate’s dry cell system would raise temperature to 45 C degree after 2 hours and raise up 1~2 C degree every following hour without the HHO cooler and this not take into circumstance that there happen to be heat generate by engine chamber itself especially there happen to be heavy jammed in traffic & apologize to say that there have not cool spot in the engine chamber except in front of the car radiator where most HHO cell are difficult to install here especially small sedan family cars) - Anyone that claims otherwise is not telling the truth. Overheating will cause the water and electrolyte to vaporize and enter the engine, which can be very damaging... well... NOT OURS!!! Our system stays ultra-cool all the time!
Average temperature of "wet cell" HHO systems at 1 hour run time = 100 degrees C
Average temperature of "dry cell" HHO systems at 1 hour run time = 85 degrees C
Average temperature of OUR HHO system at any duration run time = 45 degrees C!!!
If you measure the gas production of an open bath cell while it is running at >95 degrees Celsius, it might look as if you are getting impressive gas production, but at those temperatures the gas contains a lot of water vapors, thus it is a lower quality of gas. So, be very careful when comparing the "claimed" gas
production from various generators. Make sure that you know at what operating temperature the claimed amount of gas was measured and make sure the claim can be verified! Another important measure of the quality of the HHO CELL is to look at the 316L stainless steel(Now Super Alloy & Titanium) being used. Also note that a lot of generator only uses Low temperature plastics (e.g. UPVC OR PVC) which are not capable of handling higher temperatures. Our Hydroxgas drycell
generator use high temperature gaskets (232 c degree) and cover ½” Plexiglas materials & with high temperature HDPE reservoir tank.(Now with SS reservoir tank)
How to protect from the heat, leakage of current, leakage of water and gas are key technologies in Hydroxgas Drycell. So the biggest advantage of the Hydroxgas Drycell is its efficiency, which is up to 1 liter of HHO Gas per minute at 10A (13.8V), and up to 2 liters of HHO Gas per minute at 20A (13.8V), measured with a water temperature not exceeding 45 degrees Celsius. (No Thermo run away in Our Hydroxgas Drycell System the Amps stay where you set) Even more important is the fact that Our Drycell system can run any duration hours continuously without overheating(Now further enhance by PWM for more efficiency running Drycell). Basic important point is the passenger car has approximately 10A of excess electrical
power, if consuming over this by the generator than will become trouble in driving.
What electrolyte should I use?
We recommend KOH. Do NOT use baking soda or other acid form of electrolyte since it might damage the electrodes which may lead to reduced gas production. Gas Output of the cell ranges from 1.2 - 3.0 liter per minute. It is important to note that output varies on electrolyte to water ratio, type of electrolyte,
voltage and amperage.
What kind of water should I use?
Distilled is recommended. because tap water may cause sludge to build up and short the electrodes. Should you decide to use tap water, you do so at your own risk and in such case we advise that you should regularly open up and clean out the electrolyzer, at least once every 3 months. If your water contains too much impurity, it may contaminate the electrodes which may lead to reduced gas production. Distilled water was used to prevent contamination of the electrolyte which would result in reduced performance and efficiency.
The Hydroxgas Drycell has reached an operating temperature of between 40-45deg C, it consumes water very slow. Since our system does not run hot, it uses water very slowly. This means less refilling! Many Hydrogen systems require almost daily maintenance; this is not the case with ours. These figures are estimated to be ideal for the average car with engine capacity ranging between 1000-4500cc.10-15A does not place too much of a burden on the alternator of the car, allowing maximum mileage gains.
What is best Plate Material for HHO Generator?
The material that endures longer is better.
1) Stainless steel would be the most common, 316L is endures much longer than 304, Hydroxgas Drycell use 316L stainless steel plates in standard.(Now SS Drycell no longer in production line see the latest update)
2) Titanium Pro H2 EX release!!
3) 24v Version available now.

Use an electrolyte that suits the best to you HHO Gas generator design. The distance between the electrode plates does really matter.
A - For electrodes with little distance between the plates you could use: tap water or distilled- rain- or demy water with a very little of any of the catalysts mentioned below.
B - For electrodes with more space between the plates tap water won't work. So use distilled- rain- or demy water with a little of the catalysts mentioned below.
C - For electrodes with a lot of space between the plates tap water won’t work. Use distilled- rain- or demy water with a one of the catalysts mentioned below.
1 - Tap Water - H2O (containing minerals, salts etc.)
- Available everywhere
- Water might turn brown with smudge on the electrodes
- Water that contains chlorine should not be used
The best water for a HHO generator we found to be: Bottled Mineral Water
Distilled water is not recommended (any longer...)
2 - White Vinegar - acetic acid - H3C-COOH
- Stainless electrodes stay clean
- Available everywhere
- water will become dark
Available at your local grocery store.
A good mix for medium distance electrodes: 100% vinegar with (only if necessary) some baking soda. (If do so be carefull, because the reaction will produce co2 and some other gasses!)
2 - Baking Soda ( Natriumbicarbonate ) NaHCO3
- Available everywhere
- Electrodes and water might turn brown
- Produces Co2 (30%) and Co (4%).
- For this reason not recommended
Pure Baking Soda might leave a brown tinted residu.
3 - Sodium Hydroxide also called Lye = NaOH
- Electrodes stay clean
- 95 - 100% pure HHO (oxygen hydrogen) Gas production with right generator design
- Available in the Grocery store
- Limited dangerous to work with
- Too much heat causes corrosion
Pure sodium hydroxide is a white solid; available in pellets, flakes, granules and as a 50% saturated solution. It is deliquescent and readily absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, so it should be stored in an airtight container. It is very soluble in water with liberation of heat. Use with distilled water.
4 - KOH
Also called pottassium hydroxide.
- Electrodes stay clean
- 95 - 100% pure HHO gas production along with the right generator design
- strong and pure electrolyte
- Not available everywhere
- dangerous to work with
Recommended as very good electrolyte (recommended by Honda in 2001)
5 - K2CO3
- Non aggressive
- Reasonable / good HHO gas production depending on HHO cell design
- Safe to work with
- It is possible (sometimes necessary) to mix it with a little Koh to draw more amps.
Developed by mr. M. Moldoveanu
Water+Ethyl Glycol+KOH will provide the benefit the technical of low freezing point but high boiling point at the same time.
General information to get the best results:
Use destilled water or bottled mineral water only.
For most cars between 10 - 30 amps should give good results. Prevent to add too much watervapour into Diesel engines. Too much watervapour could delay the ignition of the fuel mixture which might cause using more fuel.
Do not try to get too much HHO gas volume out of your generator by using a lot of amps etc. It will certainly become overheated and your electrodes could be damaged. Or you will generate steam. It is better to a larger number of (small) generators to get the gas volume you need. Or use a HHO generator with a pump system. Advantages: The generators will stay cool / warm, uses less power, is safer and will last longer(!)
Your optimum draw should be several amps less when cold so keep adding little by little. until you get to your optimum amp draw. (sometimes it will double)
A few Golden Basic HHO rules in a nut shelf:
- Distance between plates > 3mm
- Electrodes should be made of 316 L stainless steel
- Use distilled water and KOH for electrolyte
- Don't exceed 1,8 volts between the plates
- Keep the HHO Cell temperature under 50 Celsius always
- take care of safety!
Millions of dollars worth of gasoline is wasted every day by motorists, because simple and inexpensive vehicle maintenance is neglected.
Fuel Savings Maintenance Tips
- Check vehicle gas caps - About 17 percent of the vehicles on the roads have gas caps that are either damaged, loose or are missing altogether, causing 147 million gallons of gas to vaporize every year.
- Make sure tires are properly inflated(do not over pressure the recommended pressure use the recommended pressure as in car manual - When tires aren't inflated properly, it's like driving with the parking brake on and can cost a mile or two per gallon.
- Replace spark plugs regularly (Recommended every 5000km~8000km as max)- A vehicle can have either four, six or eight spark plugs, which fire as many as 3 million times every 1,000 miles. That results in a lot of heat and electrical and chemical erosion. A dirty spark plug plus causes misfiring, which wastes fuel. Spark plugs need to be replaced regularly.
- Replace dirty air filters - An air filter that is clogged with dirt, dust and bugs chokes off the air and creates a "rich" mixture - too much gas being burned for the amount of air, which wastes gas and causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent.
Fuel Saving Driving Tips
- Don't be an aggressive driver - Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by as much as 33 percent on the highway and 5 percent on city streets.
- Avoid excessive idling - Sitting idle gets zero miles per gallon. Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two minutes is sufficient.
- Observe the speed limit - Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Each mile driven over 60 will result in an additional 10 to 20 percents oil loss per gallon. To maintain a constant speed on the highway, cruise control is recommended.

"Dry Cell" is a common name for a particular design of hydrogen electrolyzer, or HHO generator. The name sometimes confuses people because it still uses electrolyte in water like any other electrolyzer. But it has some properties that make it a better design, and we will show you how these properties could bring about the name of "dry cell". Perhaps a better name could have been found for this design, but it's pretty clear that the name is here to stay.
With the dry cell design, the whole cell is not submerged into an open bath of electrolyte as all other common types of HHO generator are. Instead, the dry cell's plates are separated by rubber (or similar material) gaskets, and the electrolyte is confined inside those gaskets. The edges of the plates, including all of the electrical connections are outside of the electrolyte bath. Here is an image of one of our cells that will help illustrate this.
You can see the edges of the plates between the black gaskets. What is not so clear in this picture is how the electrical connections to the plates are also outside of the electrolyte bath. But they are. Tabs on the plates are used to make the electrical connections. These are the only parts that are dry, and rightly or wrongly, give the dry cell its name.
So to summarize, the points that make a design a "dry cell", are that the edges of the plates and the electrical connections to the plates are dry, or are outside of the electrolyte bath. That's basically all there is to it.
Advantages Of A Dry Cell
So, what's all the commotion about? Why is this a better design? There are 2 main reasons:
- When the edges of the plates are submerged in the electrolyte a great deal of the electrical current passes from the edges of the plates. This current is largely wasted in terms of HHO production. When the edges are outside of the bath, all of the current is forced to travel from the faces of the plates. Therefore all of the current used is utilized in efficiently making HHO gas. This is the main reason the dry cell design has caught on so thoroughly.
- When the electrical connections are submerged in the electrolyte bath, the electrolyte attacks them and will eventually destroy them. The plates of our dry cells are made of 316L stainless steel . This has been found to have the best properties of resistance to attack from the electrolyte while still giving adequate electrical conductance. However, mounting hardware and wire and cable are very difficult to find in this material, and they are cost prohibitive to use. Therefore copper cable is usually used and a lower grade stainless steel nuts and bolts, and when these are submerged in the electrolyte, they rapidly get eaten away. With the dry cell design, all of these connections are outside of the electrolyte so this isn't an issue
So that's a "Dry Cell". It is a very simple concept. There are still a great many variations in this design from manufacturer to manufacturer. Number of plates, how the plates are powered, and how much voltage is applied from plate to plate, are just some of the parameters that can vary. But if they are dry cells they have the qualities described in this article.

In other words, that means a dealer can't wiggle out of his legal warranty obligation merely because you install aftermarket equipment. To find out if any aftermarket equipment automatically voids your vehicle's warranty, check the owner's manual. It is likely the language you are looking for appears under a heading such as "What Is Not Covered" Although the language seems negative, remember your vehicle manufacturer is simply saying he does not cover the aftermarket products themselves. He is not saying that the products would void the vehicle warranty.
How safe is it?
Our kits are extremely safe. Through a proprietary delivery system, hydrogen gas is extracted and released only as needed (hydrogen-on-demand). As a result, we've eliminated the need for dangerous, high-pressure hydrogen tanks. Tens of thousands of customers have significantly improved their gas mileage with our Mileage Makers without any issues or incidents.
How does the electrolyzer work?
Electrolyzers use an electrical current to break the bond of the neutron that holds the hydrogen and oxygen in water together. The electric current is passed through a quart of water containing ordinary baking soda as an electrolyte. The baking soda in the water amplifies the effect of the electro-magnetic field and causes the neutron to release its hold on the oxygen and jump to the hydrogen. With the neutron bond dissolved the now mono-atomic hydrogen and oxygen molecules are disassociated or liberated. The atomic structure of water has been changed from a liquid to a gas and its components - hydrogen and oxygen -have been changed from diatomic to mono-atomic.
Do i need to get Maf Enhancer and EFIEO2 enhancer?
HHO gas cannot replace fuel in 100%. HHO gas is only the octane to break fuel molecule to a smaller molecule and make the engine to burn at 100% more efficient than engine without HHO. Your current engine can only burn 60%-70%. With HHO your engine burn 100% fuel and that where the saving came from. Now please think again, does 100% fuel burning needs any adjustment to your computer?However some car may still need these product .My recommendation is try with the HHO generator first for first few week ,then if there is loss of mileage, the try with Maf/Maf enhancer ,and finally the EFIE.(New we recommend using the Volo Performance chip )
But yes you can get those product if you wanted to lean your fuel (to get more mileage) but there no guaranty that your engine will last long with those modification(caution not to over-lean your car fuel system)
What is the different between 304 s.steel and 316L s.steel inside the generator?
304 steel is cheaper but need more maintenance. It can last for about 1-2 years maximum. and need to clean the material every 2000km drive. 316L can last for 5+ years. No Maintenance needed just add distill water for every 500km drive.(New Drycell generator are Using Super Alloy & Titanium it far superior than Stainless Steel read the latest update of these Product)
What is fractional addition?
Fractional addition is the process of mixing a small amount of Brown's Gas with gasoline. Fractional addition increases the power of gasoline by 3.8 times. Gasoline fuel enriched with Brown's gas improves engine performance, consumes noxious engine emissions, and improves your gas mileage.
Can the generator be freeze protected for winter operations?
Yes, for the generator replace the water with blue -20°F Windshield Washer Fluid or anti freeze coolant water Use this mixture, during the winter, instead of plain distilled water.

“Cold” HHO benefits are phenomenal!
HHO is a mix of gaseous oxygen and hydrogen.
Welcome To the New Generation HHO Dry Cell Generator...
The time has come to say goodbye to the Mason Jars, PVC pipes, and other Containers designed to hold your plates in and submerge Hydrogen Generator. Those things are old news, history, kaput.
While they did have their time and place, they have become virtually obsolete. Plagued with problems like overheating, current leakage and a host of other dangerous factors. The submerge type Hydrogen Generator has seen its day.
HHO "DRY" CELL. Though not technically dry, the fact that liquid does not cross the plate edge boundaries has caused the phrase to be named as such. It’s a Dry Cell, meaning it’s not immersed in the catalyst, has a smaller size, and seems to have eliminated the edge voltage leaking typical with plate cells. It is technically known as an isolated series cell design. This design eliminates current leakage by isolating each plate pair from the next. The result is a cooler, more efficient running generator. The voltage between each plate is easily controlled and is uniform across the entire cell stack. This isn't as complex as it sounds, but it’s the future for HHO generation.
Why use a Reservoir, Bubbler/Mix Tank?
There are many reasons you should use an external tank. Safety is the utmost concern when adding a Hydrogen unit to your vehicle. By using an external Reservoir, Bubbler/Mix Tank if there ever was a backfire or flashback into your unit it would flash into the tank and not your precious Hydrogen convector/generator. The Reservoir, Bubbler/Mix Tank also acts as a dryer/cleaner that can help remove the catalyst chemicals from your Hydrogen gas, keeping them from reaching your engine. The Reservoir, Bubbler/Mix Tank allows a longer time between maintenance and service. You can’t go wrong by adding a Reservoir, Bubbler/Mix Tank to your system!
Some of the simple wire or coil HHO units of past and today could be made much safer; with a reservoir/bubbler a few add-ons and magnetic field alignment for increased production meaning all the current flows through the cell in only one direction. You would have a cooler and better Dry-like hydrogen hybrid generator.
We began with glass jar electrolyzers, and while easy to replicate, we quickly realized the insignificant Hydrogen production. We then moved on to upgraded "wet cell" configurations, and found that overheating was their downfall, along with the consequent process of inducting water into the engine. (The hotter a cell runs, the more water vapor it produces). After testing seemingly endless configurations of these models, we moved into the world of "dry cells." These boast much greater output; require far less current, and all at a much lower operating temperature. Through extensive research and testing we refined the dry cell system, and developed an ironclad design. Our current Hydrogen dry cell fuel system has undergone in excess of 30,000 miles of testing - and passed with flying colors!
Most devices for sale on the Internet will not stand up to the rigors of the engine compartment. There are many "science project" level devices thrown together with mason jars, PVC pipe or glass cereal canisters. These are fine if you want a science project. But for your car or truck, you need a device that is built to last.
