Diesel Generator Tests with
I bought a diesel generator specifically for testing
Hydrogen Boost hydrogen generator alone. I have pretty much proved on gasoline
powered cars that the addition of a hydrogen generator alone will not
give a considerable increase in mileage. That is why we have developed a
complete system that does indeed increase mileage by a typical amount
diesel generator I chose for tests is a single cylinder, water cooled, mechanical injection pump equipped engine with a
belt drive to a 4000 watt generator.
The engine has a compression release lever that must be released
to start the engine. It has an
electric start but it will start just fine with a hand crank if the
weather is above 50 degrees. You
have to spin the engine as fast as you can before disengaging the
set up for the testing I disconnected the fuel line from the tank and
attached a 5/16” clear plastic hose that was filled with fuel and hug
on a pole and marked at 10” intervals.
To insure a constant load on the engine I plugged in 1500 watt
electric heaters into the generator and insured that the engine ran at
a constant voltage. To make this
easier I ran the engine at full throttle under load so that the
voltmeter on the generator head was reading 260 volts. This generator has 240 volt and 120
volt recepticles. I had the heaters plugged into the
120 volt receptacles, one of which I ran an extension cord to my
electrical tester which read 130 volts.
For a source of hydrogen (Browns gas) I parked my car next to
the generator and ran a hose from the Hydrogen Boost generator,
operating at 25 amps, up into the air filter housing and down into the
intake throat. To add or
disconnect the hydrogen source I connected and disconnected the hose
from the Hydrogen Boost generator.
tests were done repeatedly. The
first was to time the run time it took to watch the fuel level go down
10” with no hydrogen added, then 10” with hydrogen added, then 10”
again with no hydrogen added.
The result repeatedly was 45 second, 52 seconds and 45 seconds
respectively. This calculated to
a 7 second extended run time with the hydrogen added or 15.5% increased
the fuel lever in the clear hose was bouncing a bit during full
throttle it was a little hard to read exactly so I designed a second
test to run the engine for one minute from a dead start and then shut
the engine down to a dead stop, then measured the difference in fuel
levels in the clear tube.
Without added hydrogen the fuel level drop was 20” and with
hydrogen added the fuel level drop was 18” for a calculated 11%
increase in run time with hydrogen added.
appears to show that hydrogen added to the running diesel engine
increases the run time, which is what everyone should expect. But did the hydrogen (Browns gas)
increase the efficiency of the combustion? If the source of the electricity to
produce the hydrogen was from the generator itself, and we got this
increase in run time, we could certainly say so. But in this case the 350 watts of
power to run the hydrogen generator came from my car, not the
generator. When we calculate the
energy produced by the hydrogen supplied by my car, you would have
questions about the apparent increase in efficiency.
have not had enough experience with Diesel engines to say for certain
one way or the other. I do know
that with gasoline I can confidently say that the addition of a hydrogen
generator alone will not increase efficiency, which is why I have been
saying for five years that you need the complete system to expect
results. For diesel engines the
use of a hydrogen generator alone is still a question for further
testing to prove one way or the other.
But what I can say about our Complete Diesel Hydrogen Boost
systems is that our customers have reported greater than expected
results, and that we guarantee satisfaction like we do with the gasoline
systems. So once again I say,
“Use the complete system and we will guarantee satisfaction or your
money back for the hydrogen generator, and the fuel heater.” The wiring kit and engine,
transmission, and differential treatments are not refundable unless
unused and returned in their original packaging.
