Let's save some fuel...

The crude oil price is back to the normal range and more and more cars are crowding the roads now. Some of you already heard about the hydrogen supplemented fuel where tiny amount of hydrogen is being feed to the petrol/diesel engines. The hydrogen is typically generated using a simple electrolysis process where current is passed through water to split it into hydrogen and oxygen gas. Some call this gas hydroxyl rather than hydrogen because it also contains oxygen. I spare you the technical details as millions of hits will return if you type hydroxyl in google. On the same note, I'm not going to dwell into the never ending debate whether this approach will actually save fuel. Ask google for that... :-)

Here are some photo of the most recent installation done by my colleagues. The vehicle is Perodua MyVi. The vehicle is 3-years old and already clocked around 150,000km. Pictured below is the homebrew electrolysis unit consisting of two cell and a bubbler. Noticed the small box on it.... Yeah, it's my digital PWM controller blogged earlier. All system go, working as planned.


The tubing brought from the rear of the car to the air intake filter.

It's been a while...

This blog was started in June 2007 as a mean for me to share some info with my friends and others with similar interest. Over the past one and a half year, I've met several new friends here, share some ideas, kick some punches, shed some tears...

I just want to thank all those who peruse this blog.
I know, some of you have no clue at all to what I'm writing here... :-)

Yesterday, this blog hit the 20,000 visits mark. I think it call for a celebration. I never expected that many hits for a much like a personal technical diary.

Again, thank you all...
