    Hi peoples, not long brought a 520i on an "s" plate, I was wondering if anyone on here had any experience of fitting a HHo2 system to a petrol engine, or whether anyone knows how the engine manages the 02 levels? Is there just the one sensor on the cat or another on the manifold too?

    It's snake oil sold by con men, only their own faked test results show improvements, and if I ran the country, I'd jail anyone trying to sell it to unsuspecting buyers.

    The same theory as the mythical perpetual motion machine, goes against all the laws of thermo dynamics, laughable!

    I actually had some gains out of it on a vw vento diesel, you have to be careful to avoid using to much power otherwise your dragging off the alternator and defeating the object you started with, I had roughly 10-15% mpg increase on the old veedub engine, not too sure whether it would make much of a difference on a more modern engine though, thought it may be worth a try, will see if I can get a second hand lpg kit maybe, they seem much more established and its basicly still petrol!

    Its all bollocks, trust me, the energy required to split water back in to oxygen and hydrogen and the inefficency of the 4 stroke engine means you will allways put more energy in making it than you get burning it, it is just daft. Just like the 20p bits of ferrite that people claim "magnetise" the petrol molecules and sell them for £20, petrol needs to be ionised at a 1500C before it will be affected by a magnetic field.
