Here's how to build a sexy looking generator that uses electricity to convert water into an extremely powerful fuel!  In this project, you'll learn how to build an OxyHydrogen generator from scratch.

Step 1: What Is an OxyHydrogen Generator?

An oxyhydrogen generator, like this one, uses electricity from your car battery to split water into hydrogen and oxygen gasses.  (Electricity + 2H20 --> 2H2 + O2)  Together, these make a fuel that is much more powerful than gasoline, and the only emission released is—water!

Of course, to be a completely clean fuel, the electricity used to generate the gas needs to be from a clean source.  Solar, wind, or water power could be a few examples.  

This video shows step-by-step how to make one.  

NOTE: The amount of electrical energy required to make the gas is more than the energy you can obtain from it.  This is NOT an energy generator so much as it is an energy converter.  
<p>I see your generator uses segregated plates for generation but no method to adjust the electric output wave. I also see the majority of your plates are not even connected via metallic means. Does this segregation of plates provide the ripple effect to separate the hydrogen and oxygen? If so wouldn't it be an easy modification to your system to have Oxygen and hydrogen flow to different containers? And is the bubbler to prevent feedback? This is a very clean build, and I like how you built the plate system. It helps in understanding how it works. Also how do you manage the buildup of excess garbage particles in the water?</p>
<p>Neutral plates reduce the voltage thus making it more efficient. Otherwise the voltage is wasted and turns to heat energy ... you want hho not steam :)<br></p><p>This guy explains it really well: https://youtu.be/lDjyIvza6Yc</p>
<p>How large of a unit would I need to build to help an F-250 Powerstroke get better mileage?<br><br>would the effort result in more MPG?</p><p>And before the whiners start..<br><br>I DO NOT expect to make a diesel run on Hydrogen.</p><p>Just help on the economy.</p>
<p>Those people that are putting a hydrogen generator on their vehicle to create hydrogen that they mix with the gasoline or diesel to get better mileage are either shysters trying to sell a system or deluded users that don't understand physics and conservation of energy. It can not work.</p><p>And if you had a hydrogen generator in your backyard how are you going to get the hydrogen to your vehicle anyway. A gallon jar full of hydrogen gas is very little hydrogen and you have to pressurize the hydrogen to make it a liquid. Can you do this? </p><p>Then even if you did get a source of hydrogen to your vehicle the mix of gasoline and hydrogen has less energy that pure gasoline. Same with diesel. Hydrogen has less energy per pound that either gasoline or diesel. </p><p>Mixing hydrogen with gasoline to improve fuel mileage <strong><em>does not</em></strong> work. You can reply to me and argue all you want, you can say it did or does for you, you can say you tried it and it does work. You measured incorrectly. It does not work. Don't reply and challenge me as to what makes me an expert. Read and learn some physics. It's not my idea, it's physics. </p><p>Using electricity to make hydrogen in order to use the hydrogen as an energy source is a losing proposition. Just use the electricity instead. </p>
<p>You learned your physics incorrectly. </p><p>Not to mention most people can use hydrogen without major modifications to their engine, most people cannot use electricity easily as it is a compleltly different motor. </p>
<p>I'm still waiting for him to find out exactly how much energy would be in a pound of Hydrogen.<br>We still don't know if he meant in a gaseous state or Liquid state.</p>
<p>I filled a balloon with hydrogen and went to weigh it for you, but it floated away :/</p>
<p>Well,</p><p>Obviously you needed a bigger balloon the get a whole pound of it....</p>
<p>If we could just get past the water to hydrogen fuel source we could make a fuel source that will be better for the world and will help slow down global warming we could make anything happen if we put our minds to it.</p>
<p>The best way to stop global warming is to shut down the politicians and their friends that are making billions off a non- human caused phenomena.<br><br>There is ZERO data to show man has any influence.<br><br>There dose seem to be a lot of politically generated hot air, but nothing of value in thatisthere</p>
Are you after coming out from under a rock. Burning fossil fuels like oil are rereleasing the c02 that took the planet billions of years to trap. And were putting it all back up there very very fast. Ive a question for you when they remove all the oil from an area under the earth.what do yoi think happens in that empty void. Take your time to think about that....clearly you will need it
<p>Instructables has a &quot;BE NICE&quot; policy, but sometimes it is difficult when uninformed, ignorant, and agenda drive 'people' come to comment on a political agenda that is not present on Instructables,com.<br><br>So, as an act of courtesy.<br><br>That &quot;void&quot; is still full of the rocks and sands that the oil and natural gas was trapped.<br><br>It is NOT just really big caverns that act as &quot;storage tanks&quot;.<br><br>As to your snarky &quot;take your time to think about that&quot; It requires no 'thought' on my part.<br><br>On the other hand, perhaps a 6 year GEOLOGY degree will help you figure out exactly how LITTLE you know of the subject.<br><br>As to this discussion, it IS NOT germain to the SOLE REASON instructables exists.<br><br>Grow up, go to political babble sites and knock yourself out.<br><br>Or, tomorrow in class, ask your perfessur to 'splain' why you appeared so stupid when you showed the value of your indoctrination by a fool that knows nothing about the subject either.</p>
Sorry about that. My friend and I have been having pretty heated debates about the issue..Thanks ...ps you are very grumpy :-)<br>
<p>True but what I am trying to say is carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide aren't doing us any favours with global warming are they so if we can create a fuel that does not produce either of them we could stop carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide poisoning.</p>
<p>&quot;Carbon Dioxide&quot; a naturally occurring gas in the atmosphere that is necessary for all forms of life on the Planet.<br><br>Fauna exhales CO2 after breathing in the oxygen NEEDED to sustain their life.<br>Flora absorbs the CO2 for it's life sustenance and emits OXYGEN.<br><br>Shall I continue?<br><br>This &quot;INSTRUCTABLES&quot; and a place of learning.<br><br>But probably not a place to hold verbal battles over politically contrived 'disasters' that are not happening.</p>
<p>But if we can make a clean fuel source we could solve many problems</p>
<p>And we come full circle to the main thrust of this Instructable.</p>
<p>And one other thing their is too much carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide in the air more than we or the plants and trees need I may be a kid but I know what I am talking about because I am studying this right now so either help me create a clean fuel source or stop replying to me. </p>
<p>You may be a kid, but if you are attending school in the public 'education' system, you DO NOT KNOW, you only 'know' what you are told to know.<br><br>I have been studying the entire life thing for a very long time and I have real world knowledge and experience to support my knowledge.<br><br>You say you want 'clean energy' and there is 'too much carbon dioxide' in the atmosphere. Where did your pick up that little jewel?<br><br>Go back and ask them for the studies that show it.<br><br>Your 'teacher' is pushing a political agenda, NOT EDUCATING you.</p>
<p>Like I said I am studying this right now at home and at college and my teachers don't have anything to do with this only me and I know there is too much carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide in the air because I have been studying it for the last 3 years so don't tell me I don't know what I am talking about</p>
<p>And I have 50 years more experience and KNOWLEDGE on the subject, but you are the 'go to guy' for answers?<br><br>Your ego is getting in the way of your learning.</p>
<p>&quot;putting a hydrogen generator on their vehicle to create hydrogen that <br>they mix with the gasoline or diesel to get better mileage are either <br>shysters trying to sell a system or deluded users that don't understand <br>physics and conservation of energy&quot; &lt;-- I can tell you don't even know what one of these things looks like OR does. Out of hand though, without even looking or trying, you dismiss the possibility because &quot;science&quot;. Look into Nikola Tesla and see what he proved. He was a lot smarter than me, and definitely you, and the industrialists, after finding out his goals of free energy for everyone, shut him down. Your college education (if you have one) was a lie. Physics' &quot;laws&quot; are partly BS, and meant to keep people from even trying to generate free energy. Maybe you should spend some time out in nature and see what actually exists. Energy is all around us, abundant and free, and ready to be tapped into. We have lightning storms, magnetic north, positively charged earth, its all around us. Why guys like you feel the need to spout off with useless and self-defeating info is beyond me. It is thanks to brainwashed sheep that we are all stuck paying for energy.</p>
<p>Lol</p>
Well said, ChristoP4.
<p>These 'detractors' have been trained to believe that &quot;All possible knowledge has been learned, and All possible inventions have been invented&quot;.</p><p>I asked a simple question and they went to war over the need to protect their knowledge from possibly being proven to be outdated and of no further use to Humanity.</p>
<p>I believe that those who are intending to use a hydrogen fuel cell on a car are not trying to increase mpg, but rather trying to improve their exhaust fumes which is a major source of pollution<br></p>
Well to be true it is possible as i have just watched it on tv a company have created a car than can run on hydrogen and you put the water in the car using the same system you are obviously out of date with your information i believe the car company called scorpion
<p>This site has a be nice policy but so far it's really difficult to be nice here. I would imagine anyone posting anything here wouldn't change your mind, but honestly, you really should do some research on energy sources. How energy is converted from one source to another. <br><br>Yes, you can create a car that runs on Hydrogen, it's been done and done well, but you cannot make a car that runs on water converted into hydrogen on the &quot;fly&quot; (enclosed in the engine by itself without outside sources doing the conversion) it is not possible, you need energy to convert water into hydrogen &quot;H20&quot; is water.. The car you are referring to claims to do this with the help of the gasoline engine...<br><br>This is just basic science.<br><br>Each water molecule has two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, each hydrogen atom is attached to the oxygen atom with a polar covalent bond, you need to split off the oxygen to create pure hydrogen, doing that takes energy, which by the way currently takes more energy than you get out of it. and at best, a perfect system (of which there will never be one) it will be 99.9% efficient and never a net gain. If we could freely convert H20 to hydrogen we would have unlimited energy on the planet right now.<br><br> You can simply do a google search to prove yourself completely wrong.</p>
<p>I have done lots of research about this and even MythBusters did something about it and yes you can run a engine on just hydrogen or mixed with another fuel to get better mpg</p>
<p>Just following up on the play nice rules.<br><br>I built the unit per the instructions.</p><p>Mounted it behind the grill, ran a tube to the air breather and put a switch under the dash.</p><p>Regulated the current to 10 amps.</p><p>Previous mileage was a consistent 19 +/- a few tenths.</p><p>1100 mile round trip I averaged 19 +/- a few tenths.</p><p>ergo, no gain and no loss.</p><p>Perhaps if i doubled. or even tripled the unit....?</p><p>Bumped the amps?</p>
<p>not this unit you need to do more than just change the fuel source you need modify the engine. Thomas Edison after being told he was crazy failed thousands of times making the lightbulb longer than a few minutes (which later was implied by the LED) succeeded at making a lightbulb using a fulfilment burn for months.</p>
<p>So, I built it, installed it with the idea of proving the theory either right or wrong....<br><br>Stated my results in plain, easy to understand English.</p><p>And without any offering of proof to support your opinion, you call me a liar?</p><p>How smug you must think yourself to be.</p><p>How stupid you have proven yourself to be.</p>
<p>okay guys, I'm going to propose something simple, that apparently you have been missing. NO ONE IS SAYING THIS WILL MAKE A 100% EFFICIENT SYSTEM. So get over it. That's not even a viable counter-argument, because it's irrelevant. &quot;You'll need an outside power source!&quot; GREAT. ADD ONE IN. Cars have batteries already right? Or is your beloved gasoline engine 100% efficient?<br><br>Jesus guys... keep it objective, please. <br><br>No one is saying &quot;replace your gasoline engine with a 100% efficient hydrogen engine where you dont need a battery or anything only water because it's magic&quot;. Got it? No one is saying that.</p><p>Try some constructive thinking for a change.</p>
<p>Stanley Meyer disproved Faraday by inventing a method to break water into its basic gases of Hydrogen &amp; Oxygen, at a WHOOPING 1600% efficiency. This permitted him to run an engine on water, because he needed very little energy to run his gas generator. The reason why this has not yet come out into the open is anybody's guess. Read between the lines and you might get the answers.</p>
Basic science. Nothing in this world is even 100% efficient. One of the most efficient processes is the motor that turns a flagellum in E Coli. is almost 100% efficient but not quite. (Brown, W.,&nbsp;In the Beginning: compelling evidence for Creation and the Flood, 7th&nbsp;ed., Center for Scientific Creation, Arizona, USA, pp. 17&ndash;18, 2001.)
<p>Stanley Meyer was a FRAUD!</p>
<p>Tonyreveiro: It is very sad if you believe the Stanley Meyer claim; you have company, to be sure, for there are always those who seek miracles or chances to find cheap energy. His method was not one of those.</p>
<p>.....er, how did such a clever person as you, yrralguthrie, come to get stuck with swampland? Did you get an irresistible offer of a FREE (economically-attractive!) drill when you bought it?</p>
<p>I inherited it, do you want some!</p>
<p>Not if it means I have to go to Hamerica.</p><p>Was it your brother that inherited the Microsoft shares?</p>
<p>Dude you strike my as a backwards grandpa that is stuck with ideas of the past, if you where not you would not have take the grandpa way out with the &quot;don't question me&quot; mentality. Although I do agree that the idea of teaming it up with liquid fuel makes no sense your way of trying to &quot;shut people down&quot; makes you appear that way for you're completely missing the tranportation applications that it these are working on already.</p>
<p>You can't break the laws of thermodynamics. If there's any set of laws in Physics that can never be broken then that set would be the laws of thermodynamics. They are the basis for many other physical laws including the arrow of time. It's a good thing to be open minded but you have to always temper that with actual scientific knowledge.</p>
<p>I didn't know you were part of the Flat Earth Society.</p>
<p>Yup, one of the first laws of Thermal Dynamics is &quot;Never believe the exspurts, because they were merely a drip under pressure&quot;.<br><br>I built it, installed it, and it was a wash on the economy.</p>
<p>first the only thing you are right on is the generators being sold wont help gas mileage. </p><p>first they are hydroxy generators, not hydrogen generators.</p><p>second hydrogen by the pound has way way way more energy than gasoline or diesel.</p><p>third mixing hydrogen with gasoline would most defiantly give you better fuel economy.( not hydroxy)</p><p>forth yes anyone could pressurize hydrogen, even down to a liquid state.( not hydroxy)</p><p>fifth even hydroxy even has way way way more energy buy the pound than gasoline does.</p><p>hydrogen is not flammable until it has oxygen. if you pull the hydrogen away from the oxygen you can pressurize it in cold down to liquid. store it in a tank like a propane tank, however if you due this with the gas from h2o2 (hydroxy generator then even the static electricity of the tank touching the air will ignite it, and booooooom.</p>
<p>This is a place of learning and teaching, if your not doing either then I think in the wrong place, sir. </p>
<p>Even if there were a good means to inject the hydrogen with the fossil fuel and the oxygen with the air, the latter would interfere with or be compensated in the Oxygen sensor - modulated combustion controls handled by the car's computers, and the former would add complexity, a great deal of weight and consequent inefficiency. There is absolutely nothing of value that this instructable presents. I see that gnewman6 is confusing this instructable with hydrogen - fueled vehicles, which are already here. I believe that Toyota has stated that the future is in hydrogen - fueled vehicles, not in hybrids. Scorpion is not likely the leader in Hydrogen - fueled vehicles, and the statement by gnewman6 shows a great deal of confusion between the suggestions of the author of this instructable and the builders of hydrogen - fueled vehicles.</p>
