ABSTRACT

 

The fuel consumption and emission pollution associated with oil combustion is gaining, an increasing in the world. Recently, Hydroxy gas (HHO gas) has been introduced as an alternative clean source of energy. The Hydroxy gas (HHO) was produced by the electrolysis process of different electrolytes with various electrodes in leak proof hydrogen generator. The design of new device attached to the engine, to integrate an HHO production system with the gasoline engine. The device is compact and installed in engine compartment. The results show that a mixture of HHO, air and gasoline cause a reduction in the concentration of emission pollutant constituents and an enhancement in engine efficiency. The emission tests have been done with varying the engine speed. The results show that nitrogen monoxide (NO) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) have been reduced when a mixture of HHO, air and fuel was used. Moreover, the carbon monoxide concentration has been reduced. Also a reduction in fuel consumption has been noticed and it ranges between 20% and 30%.
