    I hope most poster in this forum now know my attitude regarding HHO and overunity by now. But just out of curiosity. Is it possible to use hydrogen on a fuel injected engine or do it have to be a carburettor engine

    I think it would be, but I think you would have to adjust the air/fuel ratio. Guess what I'm saying is I would be interested in this also.

    If solar cells became cheap I could see running a car off of hydrogen.

    BMW has been experimenting with Hydrogen powered cars since the 70s. The entire ground fleet of the Munich (Munchen) airport runs off of it.

    From what I understand it doesn't take a lot of modification, except for the bottle in the trunk. I don't feel H2 is really anymore scary than gasoline (which has more energy potential than either H2 or Propane).

    Adding propane to diesel can be a hoot though.

    Mythbusters took a carbureted vehicle completely unmodified and had a tank of hydrogen. They opened the tank and held the hose over the intake. The vehicle ran but backfired after a few cycles.

    I would reccommend trying with a fuel injected vehicle. You would have to replace the injectors. most injectors are peizo based and the hydrogen, not being a liquid, wouldn't meter correctly. Once you had the combustion area size, you could calculate the amount of hydrogen needed per stroke and wha-la!

    The hydrogen can also self ignite from hot gas left over from combustion, and spark plugs.
