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.
