Does the Added Water Vapor Corrode the Engine

by : Michael Hickmon

This is a hot topic right now with many of the persons that are adding HHO or Brown's Gas producing systems to their automobiles. In the discussion group at the water4gas member's forum area, an overwhelming number of answers have come from the many experimenters.

Basically they are saying that the water vapor that emanates from the electrolyzer seems to clean the engine including the valves, pistons and other passages. I confirm that this seems to be the case with my vehicles as well.

I tried this technology on many cars myself. Like on my 18-year old Lexus LS 400, my 10-year old mini van, my friends 25-year old GMC Van, and others. I have never seen a problem. The cars run smoother and quieter when you install the system. And of coarse the engine runs more roughly shortly after you remove it. (but not as bad because it will take years to accumulate the same amount of junk that it has cleaned).

The amount of water in the HHO mixture is a minuscule. There is however a lot of water to be found in the fuel on a regular basis. This is true especially when driving in the rain or any humid area. You never here of cars having internal engine corrosion problems in the Pacific Northwest, only body rust problems. Also, many times the gas itself will come with a little water mixed in. The bottom line is less damage and less maintenance in the long run. The savings just from resolving the engine's pinging or knocking makes for less wear and tear on everything even on the transmission.

But won't the water vapor make the exhaust system rust?

No. The water vapor is very hot inside the engine, and cleans but does not cause rust to form due to the temperature being very high. Another very important point is that there is enough lubrication in the gasoline itself to prevent any corrosion of this nature. The water vapor and hydrogen clean the carbon deposits off the pistons, valves, rings, etc. This is why the engine starts to run smoother.

It is cooler in the converter and back in the tail pipe, but it's not much different than driving in the rain or any humid area/weather.

Of note is that during WW II Air Force pilots noticed that when they flew close to the water their engine started to run better. So guess what, that's right they experimented with injecting a fine mist into the engine. And wala their engines ran smoother. And there were no reports of corrosion problems that I know of.

The bottom line is that this technology has an overall good effect on the longevity of the engine. There will be less maintenance, fewer breakdowns, and of coarse improved gas mileage. And most people are especially interested in saving money and saving gas right now at the gas pump, and that's what we all are looking for. The benefit of less pollution is a great plus as well. I personally noticed a radical difference with my Lexus, just think if all cars did that. I think that my emissions have been halved. I will run a test to confirm this at the smog station, in fact I have already talked to them about that and they are cool with it.
