Electrolyzer not enough!
We're using what some people refer to as “watergas technology”.
Electrolyzers, water vaporizers, water injectors, hydrogen generators of all sorts. As far as I know everybody in the industry shares the same problem on modern computerized cars, and here's a typical story:
Somebody installs a device and enjoys better fuel economy for a few days. Then after maybe half a tank or so, he calls or emails the developer and says: “Hey listen – your device stopped working – I'm losing mileage. I can see the bubbles coming out and all, but the performance has dropped!! I am losing the gains I had!” You know what it means when somebody is losing gains he's already got? It means there is some freaking suppression on the
area! It needs to be detected and removed, either by handling or by disconnecting from the source of suppression. Same here. Now let's get purely technical and examine what happens.
You have enriched your car with something fantastic – water power of some sort. Hydrogen, water vapor, or both. As your computer senses a richer fuel it then reduces the amount of fuel being consumed, because you’re already running rich. So far so good because you don’t need as much fuel as before.
Now the problem shows its ugly face when we discover that the computer
– your vehicle's computer – has been pre-designed to protect the vested interest of those who would like to see you waste fuel like crazy. While pretending to be your friends.
This is an unproven theory of course, but your computer figures out that we've been enforcing fuel economy for a while and it says: “Wait a minute - somebody is probably doing something fishy here” - and it switches your car into “Limp Home” mode which means, between other things, a constant-rich (wasteful) mixture.
What just happened? You’ve been enjoying good fuel economy for a while, but all of a sudden your gains are dropping and in some cases even going negative. That is, worse than before the installation. You computer has said: “Sorry buddy, we've just caught you cheating and we can’t allow that.”
Here comes the counter-measure. Several inventions exist to lean the usage of gasoline back to where it was before you've lost gains, and in most cases even much better. The invention we're presenting here is not the only one, but is among the simplest.
We’re going to use this invention to change the set points so that the computer is still active in “closed circuit” or “closed loop” mode. That is, it still senses the car's performance and it still controls the consumption of fuel as needed every little moment of driving – but the difference is that now we have totally changed the set points in your favor!
Now you are going to enjoy the mileage gains and you'll get to KEEP THEM for a very long period of time.
For this reason, we must trick the computer to sense less oxygen, or otherwise change the formula that it uses to calculate how much fuel should be sent to the engine.
What if my vehicle doesn't even have a computer??
However in many modern vehicles, the computer is designed to run the engine on a too-rich mixture. By "mixture" we mean the mixture of fuel and air being fed into the engine. We speak about air-to-fuel ratio, which simply means the ratio between the amount of air flowing into the air intake of the engine, and the gasoline or diesel fuel being mixed with that air. It is a common thought between mechanics that there is some ideal ratio. However in the water-fuel industry (such as Water4Gas) we find that these ideas have to be re-adapted to a new reality: WITH HYDROGEN BEING FED INTO THE ENGINE AS WELL AS REGULAR FUEL, t he ratios can be very different - in the direction we want - which is less fuel (costly stuff) and more air (free stuff).
"Rich" mixture means that there is more fuel in the mixture, and "lean" means a mixture with LESS fuel and more air. We want to "lean" the mixture. And now we can.
Now back to the question of "What if my vehicle doesn't even have a computer?" - well the answer is that it does not matter. Even if the engine is designed in such a way that considerable amount of fuel is being saved automatically, it is still desirable to lean the mixture further down, to maximize fuel economy.
We're not going to discuss everything about it. I just wanted you to understand the principle: less gasoline or diesel fuel, more air, that's what we want. And there are many ways to do this, depending on the vehicle. Below we'll touch only the typical fuel-injection system.
As I said we'll concentrate on the Oxygen Sensor (also called O2 Sensor) but that's not the whole story. It's just a very common story.
The Oxygen Sensor is installed in the exhaust pipe near the engine and “senses” oxygen flowing through the exhaust pipe by comparing temperatures of its inner part (Sensor Tip) to the temperature of outside air.
The goal is to fool the fuel injection computer into sense MORE OXYGEN than before, thus signaling the computer: “The mixture is too lean!”
The computer then compensates with a leaner mixture and possibly a slight advance in timing. This result is smoother engine operation and much better MPG.
HOW DOES THE MAP SENSOR WORK?
It's not just fuel control though. The MAP senor signal gives the computer a dynamic indication of engine load. The computer then uses this data to control not only fuel injection, but also gear shift and cylinder ignition timing. In some cases it is even used to calculate changes in barometric pressure, to automatically adjust for different altitudes.
HOW DOES THE MAP SENSOR ENHANCER WORK?
The invention we're talking about here is a simple play with resistors. A resistor is a little piece of carbon that somewhat blocks electrical current. Higher value means it resists more. The potentiometer (“pot” for short) is a resistor, a variable resistor, which varies its value by turning the knob. But it is still only a resistor.
The MAP or Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor is a little but expensive device installed in your intake manifold, or installed on the firewall and connected to the manifold with a thin hose. It has 5 Volts or 12 Volts coming in, and it simply senses the vacuum in the manifold and attenuates (reduces, weakens) this incoming voltage by a certain factor. In other words it reduces the supply voltage to a direct-current voltage in the range of 15% to 60% of the supply voltage (depending on the car's design these numbers will vary), and this varying (but non-pulsing) signal is then sent back to the computer.
The arrangement of resistors simply takes this already attenuated (reduced, weakened) signal – and attenuates it further. Too much attenuation kills the engine, it will simply shut off. Yet if you control it correctly you can lean down the mixture from the stoichiometric (a big word that simply means “balance of ingredients”) which is factory set at 14.7:1 (14.7 parts of air to 1 part gasoline) – down to 20:1, maybe even 50:1 or 100:1.
My e-books show you how to build this device for less than $10, and how to tune it for best mileage. Since I published my design in 2007, many have started to build and market this device for $60 or so. However every one of my readers can not only learn to make them, but also is allowed to sell freely as many as he wants. There are no Patents to restrict your free use of this knowledge.
