A short video that shows my Vanagon 2.1 L engine that is burning 100% Hydrogen. A simple resevoir is half filled with distilled water which is gravity fed to a dry cell hydrogen generator. The hydrogen generator produces 4.5 to 6.5 L of Hydrogen per minute which is plenty to easily run my Van's 2.1 L 4 cylinder engine.

Basically, distilled water is circulated through two plastic hoses leading to a drycell which generates the hydrogen gas. The gas is returned to the resevoir and collects at the top where it is then drawn into the vacuum intake manifold via a third plastic hose attached to the top of the resevoir.

I have the drycell connected directly to the engine alternator so when I turn on the ignition the alternator sends a charge to the drycell. By using two 50 Amp relays on bothe the positive and negative wires, effectively the drycell is fused and avoids drawing more than 50 Amps from the alternator and potentially heating the distilled water which greatly reduces hydrogen production.

Bottom line converting a vehicle with a combustion engine to burn Hydrogen gas instead of gasoline is a simple inexpensive project. Burning on-demand 120 Octane Hydrogen is simple and far less expensive than burning inferior 87-91 Octane gasoline. One exhausts oxygen and water vaper, the other deadly carbon monoxide. Distilled water costs roughly $1.00 per gallon and gasoline is roughly $3.50 per gallon. One gallon of distilled water lasts 1,500 miles.
