A couple of weeks ago I had blogged about several companies developing hydrogen-on-demand systems. These systems are meant to completely power one’s vehicle using hydrogen gas.
But, there is another system that some manufacturers have developed using hydrogen to boost a normal engine’s performance, increase gas mileage and reduce emissions. One such company is GetHydroPower, which has recently developed the Gorilla 20-cell Electrolyzer unit for larger engines (over 4-liter).
Unlike many other units that fit underneath the hood, this unit, weighing 80-pounds is too large for that and must fit either in the trunk or truck bed. The Gorilla draws 60-amps from the alternator until it is fully charged, then 15-amps after that.
The hydrogen boosting unit delivers both hydrogen and oxygen to the vehicle’s intake system and is stated to deliver gasoline savings of 15 to 50 percent. Unlike some other units that use distilled water, the Gorilla uses a proprietary electrolyte solution that needs to be refilled about every 6,000 miles.
