Scangauge Anomaly

     I have experienced an anomaly lately with my mpg reading on my Scangauge, but I think I have it solved.  I have had my Scangauge calibrated to my system when using the electronic control circuit.  The engine displacement is set at 1.7 liters even though the engine is 1.9 liters displacement.  After about five tanks full of setting the Scangauge refill variance at fill up, the tank trip mpgs were always right on with the calculated mpg at fill up.

     Lately I wanted to do some experiments with the electronic circuit shut off for purposes of sales in states and nations that won't allow the circuit.  Plus I had a loose connection because I never soldered the wires to the circuit, and this was causing some hesitation.  Well, my Scangauge mileage has been bad and I've been blaming the cold weather, winter tires, and the winter fuel, which all changed at pretty much the same time. 

     A couple days ago after testing mostly normal driving habits with no driving tips involved, I refilled and compared the mpgs again and they were way off.  My calculated mpg was something like 42.8 but the Scangauge tank trip mpg was only 37.7.  This means I was getting over 13% better mileage than I though I was getting by watching the Scangauge.  No wonder I was still getting just over stock mpg while driving normally.  If I add the missing 13% to the Scangauge mpg I am still getting a good 20% increase over stock equipment, even though I had cold weather, winter tires, and winter fuel.

     So those of you that have a Scangauge and use the electronic control circuit, don’t be alarmed if you have a loss of Scangauge mileage when you decrease your electronic control circuit setting.  I find it best to simply set the control circuit and forget about it.  All the “fine tuning” and tweaking I’ve done has not really achieved anything.  Find a good setting and forget about it.

     And those of you that don’t use the electronic control circuit or can’t use it because your car has the wrong type of MAF sensor, don’t think you are losing 13% of the mileage you could be getting.  You are not.  My 13% difference between the Scangauge mpg and the calculated mpg was coincident with maybe a 15% loss of indicated Scangauge mpg.  So really I only lost a couple percentage points in real mileage.  Remember the calculated mileage was higher than the indicated Scangauge mileage.

     While we are talking about the Scangauge I’d like to address some complaints that have been received at the Scangauge factory.  I guess many drivers using the Scangauge expect it to indicate accurate mpg as soon as they attach it to their vehicle.  The Scangauge is a mileage calculator that gets information from a variety of sensors on a variety of vehicles.  No two vehicles are alike and certainly sensors on different types of vehicles will not be alike either.  A calculator can only be as reliable as the information it receives from the vehicle it is attached to.  The Scangauge is a great calculator that requires calibration to your vehicle before it can be accurate on your vehicle.  Please don’t expect it to know that your MAP sensor reads a little high or that your RPM reading is a little low, or that your intake air temperature sensor got clogged with dirt.  Go through the process of calibrating your Scangauge and you’ll have a very accurate mileage readout at all times.   

 

Hydrogen Boost News

 

     I have been hesitant to give out all the news about what is going on with our company.  In the last few months I have discovered another handful of companies on the market that are producing and selling Hydrogen generators/electrolyzers for motor vehicles and making claims from 8% to 40% increases in mileage.  I welcome these new companies to the market as they are bringing business to us, because the more people are informed, the more they will search the internet for alternatives.  There is plenty of business out there for all of us and the public needs all of us to get the word out to them about the benefits of on-board electrolyzers. 

     My concern about these companies is that they are making claims that are not realistic with hydrogen injection alone.  I have never seen an increase in mileage of greater than 10% caused by the addition of a hydrogen generator/electrolyzer, even one of ours that produces three times as much gas as most of the others out there.  I have seen a loss of 10% in mileage when our hydrogen generator burns a fuse or runs out of water, but that is only when we have adequate fuel vaporization to take advantage of the electrolyzer (hydrogen) gases. 

     Read our November 2001 newsletter at http://www.hydrogen-boost.com/november2001.html to understand how the hydrogen generator works best when combined with heated fuel and a good vaporizing system.

     To get a 20-25% increase in mileage without driving tips, it takes more than just a hydrogen generator/electrolyzer.  Our comprehensive system that addresses all areas of efficiency, from combustion properties, to lubrication, engine treatment, tire rolling and wind resistance, and method of maintaining kinetic energy through driving techniques, will indeed meet and surpass the claims of up to 40% increase in mileage.  In fact it is our experience that a consistent 50% increase in highway mileage and up to 100% increase in city mileage is very achievable.  We have done it with most every vehicle we have personally worked on.
