Hydro4000 And Similar Devices - How Do They Work?

If you're looking for alternatives to the Hydro4000 water fuel device, it's important to know a few things about hydrogen fuel cell technology first.

The Hydro4000 and similar devices - whether they cost $1200 like the Hydro4000, or under $100 (for plans) like Water4Gas - all work on the same basic water fuel cell principles. But let's get one thing straight...

NONE of these devices allow you to put water in your gas tank and get rid of gasoline!

Maybe one day we'll run our cars using one big car fuel cell, but it's not today. The goal of the Hydro4000, and devices like the Water4Gas system is to use less gasoline and more of an extremely cheap (or free) fuel - like water (maybe with a little baking soda mixed in). This doesn't do anything magical to the gasoline, but if you calculate miles per gallon (or km per liter) based on the gasoline only, you will obviously see an increase, since you are using less gasoline for the same amount of miles traveled.

So, exactly what do these hydrogen fuel cell devices do?

They produce oxyhydrogen, or HHO - also known as "Brown's Gas" - which is a combination of hydrogen and oxygen gases in the same atomic ratio as water. The difference is that HHO is used extensively for torches and in the production of "refractory" materials - materials that are used in high-temperature operations.

HHO can be produced very simply through electrolysis - running an electrical current through water. This dissociates the water molecules and produces Brown's Gas.

So, the basic idea of the Hydro4000 and devices like the Water4Gas system is this:
  1. Use the automobile's battery to create an electrical current running through distilled water (probably with a bit of baking soda added).
  2. Use the automobile's vacuum system to draw out the gas produced from the electrolysis process.
  3. Send the gas into the air intake to be mixed with the gasoline/air mixture from the carburetor.
  4. Burn the HHO/gasoline mixture in the engine, producing less overall emissions (the regular emissions from gasoline, only reduced + water, which is the output of burning the HHO!).
  5. Get up to 82% better fuel efficiency (from the gasoline and basically free water used) and run a cooler engine, since HHO helps to keep the engine cooler.
So, whether is the Hydro4000, Water4Gas, or other similar systems, electricity is used to turn water into HHO, is combined with the gas/air mixture, and gives you better gas mileage - amazing!

I prefer the cheaper alternative myself. And, since it comes with an 8-week 100% money-back guarantee, there is absolutely no risk to "check under the hood." If you're like me, and you want immediate access to inexpensive, guaranteed plans, Click Here To Learn More About Water4Gas.

Hydro 4000 Review - Is There Anything Else Like It?

The $1200 Hydro-4000 promises, in the words of the manufacturer, to "save fuel, improve engine performance and provide a 'green' alternative to conventional fuels like gasoline, ethanol and diesel. Also known as a Hydrogen Cell, the HYDRO-4000 provides better mileage which, in turn, saves fuel while improving engine efficiency and lengthening engine life."

Although this appears to be one of the first commercially available devices of its kind on the market, there have been plans available on the internet for some time now. One ebook alternative to the Hydro4000, "Water4Gas" sells for under $100 and requires only $100-200 in materials to make your own version of a hydrogen cell. The book carries a money-back guarantee, and is supported by a number of testimonials from folks who are getting as much as an 82% increase in miles-per-gallon! Sure, the Hydro4000 is a pre-packaged kit, but if you don't want to drop the $1200 for it, this is the next best alternative.

In fact, here's a video of the Water4Gas device in action:

Here's a closeup of the device being powered up. Distilled water with a little baking soda is used to produce HHO, also known as Brown's Gas, which, according to Mobile Magazine, "provides the atomic power of Hydrogen, while maintaining the chemical stability of water."

My suggestion would be to save the $1200 cost of the Hydro 4000 and spend just $97 for the Water4Gas ebooks first. Heck, build your own system and just see if it produces HHO, before even hooking it up to your air intake. If it doesn't work for you, you can always get your money back.

You might even be able to turn this into a nice side business - building and installing Hydro4000 alternative devices for your friends, family, and neighbors!
