Runnin a Truck on Hydroxy Gas from Common Water

Hydrogen Hog by Future Energy Concepts, Inc.

Inventor Frederick W. Wood, and his associate, David Seigler, from Future Energy

Concepts, Inc., claim to converted a Dodge 2004 pickup truck to run on nothing but hydroxy gas, electrolyzed on-board, and on-demand, via a super-efficient electrolysis (from water) method they have developed.


They say their system produces 55 liters per minute on 55 amps; and that they recently (around Aug. 15, 2010) completed a road trip of more than 3500 miles, running on this set-up.

Though they are working on a production model, they say they are giving the core design away to the world and hope that people will replicate.

Description

Quoting from their website (as of Aug. 17, 2010):

Basically the water is pumped into the pressure vessel when the internal float switch is closed. The PWM is used to produce an electrical pulse which is tuned to the resonant frequency of the inner electrodes. This vibrates the water trapped between the outer and inner tubes. The outer tube is charged positive and is tuned exactly 180 degrees out of phase with the inner tube. The vibration wave is propelled by the positive charge towards the outer tubes just to be attenuated by the outer tube tuning.

The excited water molecules 2(H2O) now only require a fraction of the amperage to be converted into (2H2 + O2). Also experimentation of harmonic frequencies have produced interesting results, sometimes exceeding HHO production of the tubes at resonance. The vessel has a large inner and outer tube which is tuned 4 octaves lower than the outer tubes and has a clearance between the tubes of only 1mm. This tube produces the most heat and HHO. The smaller outer tubes have a 2mm clearance and run cooler and take less amperage and are mounted around the large tube assembly. The epoxy used to seal the bottom inside of the vessel and bottom of the electrical enclosure is laced with ferrous oxide dust 10% by weight which creates an capacitor which smoothes out the square wave pattern to a sine wave pattern which helps the transition between off and on for the PWM. Experimentation with an air coil after the mosfet drivers and before the load also resulted in an increase of efficiency.

The HHO is then pressurized to 60 PSI within the vessel, and regulated by the pressure switch which cycles the PWM as needed and the under the hood pressure regulator and dryer assembly. The HHO then travels through a check valve to an injection tee. The fuel line from the rail originally is connected to the tee before a metering valve and spring loaded valve. When accelerating hard, towing, or driving up extended grades the HHO production is not sufficient to power the vehicle alone, so when the HHO pressure dips below 55 PSI the spring loaded valve opens to let a small amount of stratified HC into the injection rail. Being stratified by the large flow of HHO allows a very small amount of HC to be burnt almost 100% and fill in for the HHO vessel until the load demand ends, and the vessel regains over 55PSI of pressure. Also if you have an HHO system fault, this allows you to continue driving until you can repair it.

Q&A with Fred about his truck that runs on water

Frederick Wells answers a series of questions about their 2004 Dodge 4×4 pickup truck that his company, Future Energy Concepts Inc., claims to have been able to run on nothing but water via their on-board hydroxy gas generator. New video, description, and photos posted. 3000+ mile trip just completed.

On August 16, 2010, Frederick Wells responded to a series of questions as follow-up to the story we posted Aug. 10: “Company runs truck on 100% hydroxy“, with description: “In the tradition of Stanley Meyer, the people at Future Energy Concepts, Inc. have allegedly configured a 2004 Dodge 4×4 pickup truck to run on nothing but water via their on-board hydroxy gas generator that uses the truck’s alternator to electrolyze water, which is then ducted into the air intake.”


Q. What was the longest run you ever did without stopping to recharge (batteries and water)?

So far the longest haul——–3562 miles on road trip—–still have 12 gallons left in our 25 gallon tank. In fact we have not added water since Prototype 4 , other than replacing or refining the cell. We still have the 1/8 of a tank of gasoline we used for emergency. This is a demo unit and not meant for production or constant usage, but my partner is hell bent on using it up or burning it up before I get the production unit finished; but it has only developed one small problem on the road trip. A screw fell out of the heat sink and shorted part of the board. It is still tuned to the resonant frequency, but is up over 10 volts; yet the driver travel over 890 miles back to the shop this way, and we did not have a melt down—Thank God!

Q. How much water did you use? (How many miles/gallon of water?)

Loose calculations indicate a 365 mile to gallon of water ratio—but don’t quote me until we have some real laboratory numbers.

Q. What is the peak current to the HHO electrolyzer?

Nominally we run @ 55 amps when hot. When there is no pressure in the vessel, I run the cell @ 120amps to make pressure quickly—about 2 minutes from 0psi to 68psi, but this proto PWM has been oven tested at 110F @150A with no problems

Q. Do you have extra batteries, or just the stock 12V Battery?

We have a deep cycle 1500CCA battery which is used to pressurize the vessel and filter out the nasty High frequency from the PWM which when connected to the vehicle battery made the ECU go crazy. We use a battery isolator between the HHO battery and the system alternator. Note : we rebuilt the alternator with a diesel diode bridge to increase it’s output from 138A to 200 A.

Q.

With a Smith’s CO2 flow meter from the tig welder, which will measure up to 120 CFH which is equal to 56.63 LPM.

Q. How ‘hot’ is the water temp?

Even with the messed up PWM this mourning with 80 F ambient temperatures, we are running at 122F without the truck moving. Like stated before, we had planned on a water jacket, but just haven’t been there yet!

Q. Did you add any auxiliary cooling or radiators?

No just the wind blowing in the bed of the truck.

Q. What is the max speed running solely on HHO?

The tucks ECU limits us to 109MPH–hmmm someone has been watching me huh—LOL The extra O2 feels a lot like a lightly injected NOS engine. Power is not an issue—burning holes in the piston is more on my concern list.

    Who Killed The Electric Car 1/9

    Chris Paines’ film details the short life of the electric vehicle as it struggled to find a place the tough market of American industry in particular that of the General Motors EV1 in California and its eventual decline and death. Killed by GM[GREAT company to bailout? NOT], oil companies and the government[do ya get it yet? gov't is USELESS!]

      doin my best to get the plans. had some contact with mr. wells via skype,
      but he is recovering from surgery..

    Frederick Wells talks about the recent demo that had to be scrapped; points to plans for the design; talks about his early days of research, including time spent with Stanley Meyers.

    Freddy said we could post the plans he made available in 2002, from which he built the device that allegedly enable them to run a 2004 Dodge pickup to run on hydroxy gas only, with no petrol.

    I had my first phone chat with inventor Frederick (Freddy) Wells, Vice President of Future Energy Concepts, Inc. (FEC), yesterday (Aug. 25, 2010), and learned quite a few interesting things about him and his history. Last week I published a Q&A email we got from him, but being able to connect with him on the phone was refreshing.

    Recently, he and his partner, David Seigler, have stirred up quite a buzz with their claim and videos depicting a Dodge 2004 pickup truck running on water via hydroxy from onboard electrolysis — without any petrol — supposedly having made a 3000+ mile trip on that configuration.

    That excitement was chilled when the demonstration planned for last Saturday ended up not happening. “Another bogus claim bites the dust,” is the conclusion many tended toward in their minds, though not giving up hope all together.

    The guys from ChavaEnergy who flew in for that demo were adamant to urge me not to draw that conclusion until FEC had been given an adequate second chance to prove themselves.

    According to Freddy, they were able to show their unit running on Wednesday to one of the people who had come in to validate the technology, though they didn’t have all the test equipment needed at that time to draw a full conclusion.

    Then tragedy struck. On Friday, Dave inadvertently let the cell go dry, and “cooked the PVC vessel”. It would take three days to reassemble the device, and the demonstration was scheduled for the next day. What were they to do?

    Freddy developed a bleeding ulcer and took ill, perhaps botulism. He said he had a temperature of 103 as we were talking today. When I called on Tuesday, the person I spoke with on the phone said he had been at the VA hospital all morning.

    Of course the skeptics and the skepticism in us all had a hay day with this development, jumping to the conclusion that this was probably a botched scam.

    One of the first things Freddy said to me in our phone chat was “I assure you, on my father’s grave, that this is real.”

    In the midst of this recent turmoil, Freddy has made some excellent contacts in the field with people who are likely to not only be able to help him reassemble what they had, but to increase its stability and performance.

    He has also gotten a secretary to help with the thousands of emails that are coming in (1000/hour at one point), and the myriad of phone calls. He also has gotten an engineer to help.

    Freddy also gave me the link to a website where his plans have been posted since 2002. He didn’t want me to give the link out, but he did give me permission to copy the page onto our site, which I have done. See http://freeenergynews.com/Directory/WaterFuel/FreedomReclamationProject/
    I didn’t quite understand the reason for that; and I hope I heard him correctly about being able to publish it. “You can post anything from there, but don’t link to it,” is how I recorded his statement in my notes.

    Reviewing those plans, an expert in the field said: “They are not complete… However they point you in a direction if you can read through the lines.”

    Freddy said he’s been interested in this stuff since he was in Junior High school as a kid, when he did his first electrolysis experiment. “It’s the only think I could think about,” is how he described his lifelong obsession with the technology.

    He said that in 1985 he was able to meet Stanley Meyers while he was working on some auto technologies.

    I didn’t catch clearly what he said next, but the gist of it seemed to be something about threats being made to keep this stuff quiet, which he did for years. I would guess that this is why when he posted the above-mentioned plans, he did so under a different name.

    When the Gulf Oil Disaster happened, he had to pull the plans out and build a device. He could not sit quietly any more.

    Before he got out of range on his phone (he was on the road), he was able to start sharing some of the theory behind what he thinks is going on. You’ll have to excuse my lack of understanding in conveying this, and edit my wording in you mind to what makes sense if you are more familiar with this field.

    He talked about a “super wave” and a “super cancellation wave”, being “180 degrees out of phase” “with the inner tube”. As the molecules go slamming into the 180 degrees change of direction, the electrons tend to keep moving — commonly known as a “180° phase change”. “As you pressurize, bubbles rise up to the top.”

    Referring to the work of Stanley Meyers, and what he himself has been able to accomplish, he talks about the steps of “fracture;” followed by “ionize, to stabilize”; followed by a “minute amount” going to the “injection rail” “to produce power.” It’s a matter of harmonics.

    Apparently, that is why so little water is used, and so little hydroxy gas is needed to provide enough fuel to propel the vehicle.

    The call dropped out, so I wasn’t able to get any clarification on this. That will have to come another day.

    Earlier in the call, Freddy said he wants to see this technology go out to the world and be a worldwide effort.

    Earlier in the day I spoke with a person (Adam) who also lives in Prescott, who has been subscribed to my news for years, and who hopes to be able to help Freddy in a number of ways, including communicating clearing a set of plans that can result in a successful replication of this effect. We’ll be posting those at PESWiki.
