Hydrogen Fuel Cell for your Honda?

I did a search and nothing turned up. So I was wondering if anyone else on the forums has considered putting a hydrogen gas cell on their cars to increase fuel mileage. If you don't know what I am talking about go to you tube and type in HHO, or hydrogen fuel cell, water fuel any one of those will bring up a crap load of videos and how to's. I was wondering since we have fuel injection and controled fuel to air mixtures controlled by the ECU. I am wondering what we would need to do to tune the car while using one of these fuel cells, would we need a computer, ECU that we can re map? I have heard of some really good gains in mileage plus maybe even an little increase in HP. Plus helps the intake and all related parts run alot cleaner. Just thought I would ask.

mythbusters tested internet design hydrogen cars, it just wont work, those designs are false and idotic,
if you want a fuel cell car go to california and but that honda that looks like a civic and runs on it.

i think to chip an ecu you need to convert to OBD-1

psst dude,
no kind of fuel will keep the intake cleaner lol
the intake takes in air and only air, therefor fuel never passes through the filter, perhaps you mean the fuel filter? in anycase, your car will be cleaner gas, hydrogen, methane, whatever you depend to run you car on depending on where you get it!

Hydrogen gas is a vapor you idiot, and what I am talking about goes into your intake, re condenses into water (by product) so stainless steel is recommended. The little bit of water that will help clean off the carbon build up. So do some research

What about the BMW hydrogen 7?
Uses Hydrogen like gasoline.

Well that would be hard to do, seems this guy mysteriously died. Check on you tube more I think this guy was poisoned (killed). Could the oil industry people have something to do with this? I think so

Yes Hydrogen powered cars are very possible. And with the technology .. could easily change the world were people would not be depended on Gasoline.

On the flip side. We definitly have the technology to make hydrogen powered cars today but something this advanced is still way before its time. The world is simply not ready to convert over. If something like this was to come out right now there would be a world crisis. Many people will lose there jobs etc .. etc.. because alot of things that go on today are linked the gas/oil prices.

Honestly.. This technology will save the world from polution one hopefully we will get to this say sometime in the near future because man is definitly destroying te world.

I do believe cars that use both water/gas get a much better gas mileage.
But also. WE do have the technology to have a car powered only on water. Which it breaks the water down into hydrogen and burns the hydrogen. 100% safe, 100% clean. The guy who invented it is now working with the military to further improve on this technology.

Here is the guy

No doubt, but this guy is not the same guy from the dune buggy video. They both are inventors and have their own patent. This energy source is free information but the individual devices have patents.

I started the thread to ask around if anyone has tried making their own Hybrid gas/ hydrogen fueled car. See their ideas share their stories. No big deal just trying to see if we could do our part in saving on the Earth's precious resources.

ya I looked into it and found the same info...I think the oil industry is the reason why we still get such ****ty gas mileage, I think we can do way better. Its all about the money thats just how it is...which means, I want to save my money and use water to make Hydrogen to power my car ha
