i have been a mechanic for 39+ years.

there is little advantage to the not enough hydrogen produced to make up the enough fuel to do more than a tiny percentage.

you need thousands of cubic inches of hydrogen to make an engine run at 1500 rpms..

what.. 350 cubic inches divided by 12. equals 29 cubic inches of fuel for 350 cubic inches over 2 turns of the crank.. to make 12 to 1 fuel ratio..

times that by 1500 rpms to requires 43,000 cubic inches of hydrogen gas.. in a rough calculation.

a 350 cubic inch engine can go thru at zero manifold vacuum.. 3,600 cubic feet of air per minute.  it will actually be about half that.. as the engine is going to operate at around 15 inches of vacuum.  that cuts the mass of the air by 50%

so how are you going to get 150 cubic feet of hydrogen per minute out of your gallon bottle of water..


magnets actually do help you get better fuel economy though.  the sediment in the fuel causes old cars with carburetors to dribble fuel thru the needle and seat uncommanded..  kinda like your toilet tank not shutting off and filling the tank to the overflow.. where its sent into the toilet bowl and down the drain costing you money.. with the sediment holding the needle and seat part way open.. it will cause a major reduction of fuel economy.

magnets in the fuel tank.. big magnets stuck the bottom of the steel fuel tanks.. or inside of fuel tanks gather the super fine rust to them.. keeping it out of the fuel pumps.. out of the fuel filters. out of the fuel injectors..

i personally won't work on any fuel tank without dropping at least 1 magnet into the bottom of the inside.

So it seems more suited for a smaller motor like maybe a riding lawnmower or a small gas powered electric generator or even a go-cart lol

i just realized that i got the math wrong.  its not that many cubic feet.

where will you get the hundreds of amps to break the bond between the oxygen and hydrogen.

there are other ways to do it.

using catalyists.

metallic sodium. metallic lithium and  metallic potasassium are highly reactive with water.

you can spray water on the metals and it will break the bond and release heat, oxygen and hydrogen. if you have the metalic blocks in a layer of oil and dip them into the layer of water below. you might be able to separate oxygen and hydrogen without it recombining as it separates.

there is a way to use hydrogen peroxide sprayed across a platinum grid to make super heated steam. with that you could run a triple expansion steam engine. but hydrogen peroxide at that percenage or volume is really dangerous and unstable.

Bill lear spent 20 million dollars trying to create a steam powered car.
