In the recent gasoline price hike, many car owners are finding it hard to run their cars and to have some extra money leftover at the end of the month. The situation is worst still if a family owns more than one car. With the supply of crude oil in the future in question, the local fuel prices is expected to go even higher. The only way for a car owner to cope is to get a more fuel efficient car or to improve their existing car mileage. The most practical car fuel saving methods is to convert a vehicle to run on water. How does the concept work? This article will provide some information on the subject LS engine swap kit.
A car engine uses fossil fuel as an energy source. To save fuel, we can either use a lower capacity engine to use a new form of energy. One good replacement for gasoline is hydrogen gas (H2). H2 is highly flammable and can burn more efficiently than conventional fuel. Presently, it is still not feasible to use purely hydrogen gas to power a car. The current internal combustion engine is capable of burning H2. If hydrogen gas were to be mixed with gasoline vapor in the combustion chamber, theoretically it will produce a high power output because H2 is three times more potent than fossil fuel.
To use hydrogen gas to power a car, it has to be extracted from water with an electrolysis device. We know that water is made from 2 molecules of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. By using electrolysis, H2 will be generated and stored. The idea is to release the H2 into the engine air intake system. The additional power generate from this system will make a car travel further thus increasing its mileage and saving fuel.
