I’ve written a lot lately about hydrogen generators for cars including commercial kits or DIY systems. Now, a Hartselle, Alabama man, a former preacher, teacher and automotive guy has decided build his own hydrogen gas saver and is experiencing quite a bump in mileage by doing so.
According to the Hartselle Enquirer, Worcester Telegram and WHNT.com, Larry Thrasher, has developed a hydrogen gas saver that increases the mileage on his 1996 Cadillac from 19 mpg to 53 mpg, making a trip to the local grocery store no big deal. The 1996 Toyota that Thrasher’s wife drives gets about 71 mpg highway.
Now, Larry Thrasher won’t get too specific about his hydrogen gas saver since he’s applied for a patent for the parts that make up his system, but we do know several aspects of his device. First, the hydrogen gas saver is fed from a 14-gallon water tank in the trunk.
Second, the hydrogen generator uses 12-electrodes that create hydrogen from water and feed the gas into the car’s intake system. Third, the hydrogen gas saver has a flash resistor as a safety feature in case of backfire. Fourth, there a one-way valve to control the pressure of hydrogen into the intake. Fifth, the system runs on filtered tap water and needs to be periodically cleaned.
Now, hydrogen gas savers are nothing new, but this one aspect may be: divine intervention. Thrasher has stated that the inspiration for optimizing his gasoline boosting system came after a prayer session, which directed him to a specific part in his garage that when applied increased output of the hydrogen six-fold.
While people for years have been wanting to find a way to run a car on water, Larry Thrasher has developed a hybrid method for doing this that involved a little elbow grease, mechanical know how and a little nod from above. At a time when gasoline prices are out-of-control, Thrasher is trying to put a little sanity back into the trip to the corner grocery store.
