Are you aware of any of the water4gas/run your car with water systems that are on the market. This supposedly introduces an HHO gas into the intake system via one of the vacuum lines to the intake manifold. I have done some research into this but would like your opinion. Supposedly there have been MPG increases up to about 50-60% depending on how many of the steps you decide to apply to your vehicle. Also are you familar with something called a Scan Guage II and will it give you MPG readout.
Do you

I have heard about that but I feel it is a load of rubbish and not to waste money on it, I dont see how that can increase gas mileage at all.

There are various tools out there that can tell you your MPG.

By using HHO (Hydroxy), it is possible to increase your MPG.

Hydrogen has 3 times the power of gasoline. In theory, you should be able to use Hydroxy and trim your fuel consumption by 2/3.

There are a lot of people out there that claim it works and companies that guarantee an installed system (for $2000) will give you at least 50% increase in MPG.

If you want to see their claim, google wave tv and start looking.

I have yet to see it work.

Also, I have a Scangauge II. It does tell you some information. Instant MPG and average MPG as well as reading codes and clearing them.

I have heard of that hho and I have yet to see it work as well.

Looking at it if it works the way they say it does its great, but you will need lots of modifications to system components to turn down the fuel as you wont need as much, and it seems more trouble then its worth.

As soon as I can determine if it works as touted, I'll be glad to post the findings here.
