This may get moved to there, but check out Other Diesel Topics on here. The biodiesel, svo and other alternative fuel area is where to find your answers. But from what I've read, it hasn't helped as much as some magazine adds have claimed.

It helps thin the wallet that is about it. It takes more energy to do hho than it provides.

I've seen some pretty immaculate gains on my truck as well as multiple other over the road applications.
I'm not going to post specifics on our build or go to in depth, as I don't have the time to or really want to disclose a lot of our info.

My 7.3's doing very well with it, the last time it was hand calculated I was getting 18.5mpg while hauling 4 quads on an 18' flat bed 600 or so miles round trip. The kicker is, (if anyone knows anything about HHO) I'm only running between 5 and 7 amps.

I did a ton of research on this last year and just finally gave up because for the most part I really couldn't find any hard evidence.

I'm in the process of installing a vegistroke now anyways, so no need to mess with that stuff.

5to 7 amps is good.

TO the OP if you can get a HHO cell ( the dry cells are better than the wet cells) that makes 5 to 6 liters a minute with 10 or less amp it should make a nice gain in MPG and a little more Horse Power. Just some food for thought.

I would if I could, if we get an extra one I'll see what I can come up with. I'm sure that the group of guys wouldn't mind selling you one but right now they're a little on the pricey side. :doh:

Couple simple questions for you....

5 - 7 amps.... that's pretty good ! How much volume is being produced ? And any sensors you have to deal with ? Your water is probably staying pretty cool too yes ?

Can't really give you a number on the exact volume, as its really hard to read because it's suck a light gas. The water does stay cool yes.

I'lll just say we got a columbia frieghtliner with a 60 series detroit up to 13-14mpg bobtailing with good weather.

hey thanks for the info. its good to see some decent results in a diesel. I had a unit running on my gasser and gained roughly 3mpg. but I am hoping to see beter than that on my diesel.

Are there any sensors I need to worry with on the 6.0??

DO you have air sensors, like for oxygen in your air intake or exhaust???
somtimes that can mess up your MPG with Hydrogen it can actaly make it worth. I know in the 7.3L you dont have lots of sensors to worry about. I do not know much about the 6.0L Just something to look into. I hope this helps.

Yeah, on my gass truck you had to contend with the O2 and MAF/MAP sensors to see any big gains. I am not 100% about what sensors are on the 6.0L.

I have also heard that the 2 stage injectors keep the HHO from helping much also.

The injector should have nothing to do with it. The Hydrogen Makes more of the diesel Burn. So it takes less fuel to run. Hydrogen is like putting a oxygen tank in your pickup and running a hose into the air intake.

For a 6.0L you would want atleast 3lpm of hydrogen gas. if you can get one that flows more you will do better, and try to keep it under 8amps. Just some food for thought.
