HHO and a new engine

I am considering repowering a sail boat and would like to know if the new diesel engine will need to break in first. Also, does the HHO generator know not to put in too much HHO and get less MPG ? The engine is a non turbo /(non computerised,I think) unit. Thanks.

Too much HHO…?

Hi Ernie,

I like your question! First, there is no need to break-in or run-in your engine! Next… a properly installed generator set to produce about ⅛ LPM (liters per minute) of HHO for each liter of engine capacity is about perfect.

This means that if your diesel engine is a 1.5 liter, then you would need about ⅙ LPM of HHO. LIKEWISE, if a 5-liter engine would need ⅝ LPM to ¾ LPM. You only need to draw about 2-2.5 amps per liter of engine size, which determines how many LPM you make!

If your engine is quote, "non-computerised, I think," then you might well not need any additional equipment. Just a Reservoir, Generator and Bubbler, along with tubing, relay and inline fuse and ammeter, (also not a bad idea to have a 'flash-back arrester as well!).

Happy sailing
