Recipe To Success

I know most of you are interested in the immediate results that HHO Technology devices will produce but once you get a feeling of the possibilities you will want to achieve the most you can from it.

The following is How2SaveFuel.com‘s recipe for success:

  1. Fix it first – You can’t expect great results if your vehicle starts out in poor shape
  2. Accurate road tests – Pick a routine route that conditions can be duplicated
  3. Log your results – Paper log your miles per gallon to compare against later results
  4. Install an HHO Technology system - Purchase at How2SaveFuel.com
  5. Install other gas saving techniques - Purchase at How2SaveFuel.com
  6. Get your free supplies – From your stuff at home
  7. Get involved with spreading the word & earn commission - Join our Affiliate Program  
  8. Help the environment, our health and overall economy

The first thing you have to do before you even start talking about improving gas economy is make sure your vehicle is operating properly.

There's a maintenance philosophy that says: “If it ain't broken, don't fix it!”, while another philosophy says that preventive maintenance is what you do to save in the long run.

We are not going to argue that question here, which of these philosophies is right and which is wrong. Maybe both are right. Different people operate differently, each confronting a variety of budget problems and other considerations. So I'm not telling you what to do regarding your maintenance decisions.

If you say “It ain't broke, I don't fix” fine with us! But hey, if IT IS broken – fix it. Before, after, whatever. Just fix it!

Now an HHO Technology system can still work in a broken car. It will cool down an overheating engine for instance and it will reduce emissions.

Yet it would be unfair and technically incorrect to demand miracles. And the main “miracle” you want your system to perform is GAS SAVINGS. We know because we are just like you. Yet it has been demonstrated that it really takes a miracle for gas savings to occur, in a car that is out of tune, has bad valves or rings, worn bearings or is generally dilapidated.

So if you want to enjoy the full benefits and the awesome power of HHO, start with a clean baseline. Have your car fixed, checked and tuned to factory specifications by a trustworthy mechanic. It is recommended to have a good tune-up done at least once a year.

It would even be better to do a tune-up (and any repairs indicated by the mechanic) and then run a basic SMOG CHECK before installing the HHO Technology. Hopefully this will coincide with your bi-annual required certification. This establishes a “before” picture, or in technical words a “baseline”. If you then see a great deal of change and you want to know what the numbers say, run another smog test three weeks AFTER installing HHO Technology. Compare the results and we think you will have something to brag about. More importantly you would then have proof when submitting your tax returns for the tax credits.

Remember to ask your mechanic about any non-obvious factors that may be reducing your fuel economy. It's may not be just the engine! For instance a badly adjusted braking system might cause a constant drag on the engine reducing both your safety and fuel savings.

Similarly, the Alliance to Save Energy of Washington DC (phone 202-857-0666) says that replacing a faulty oxygen sensor can improve mileage by up to 40%.

Another non-obvious factor is wheel alignment. The problem may be with the wheel rims, or only the tires. Misalignment will cause drag and vibrations and rapid tire wear.  A tire center professional will be able to (1) align the wheels, and (2) balance each wheel and tire individually. Doing these repairs will pay for themselves in gas savings, tire replacements  and provide a more pleasant ride.

Yet another common malfunction is a clogged or broken exhaust system. Have your mechanic check the exhaust system and the catalytic converter, since those sometimes have parts collapse inside, blocking free passage of air. This is a job for the professionals, since in most cases you can't see the damage. I recommend checking references, like the Better Business Bureau for the reliable repair people to deal with. Otherwise they might try to replace otherwise serviceable exhaust pipes or converters, causing you unnecessary expense. Of course that's specifically not the idea here, the bottom line here is to save you money.

Lastly, make sure your gas tank cap is not damaged, loose or missing. 17% of all gas caps are damaged or missing, causing a yearly loss of 147 million gallons of gasoline! Gas spillage can also be caused by overfilling (especially on cars with caps behind the license plate). So remember to stop refilling when you hear the first click at the gas pump.


SEVERE WARNING Before attempting ANY maintenance on this system, turn the engine OFF and let it cool first. Then make sure that the device(s) are DISCONNECTED from the 12 Volt electrical supply, by turning the ignition key fully off AND pulling out the in-line fuse. Do this even when “only” filling up with distilled water – otherwise the electrodes might short circuit to the car’s body or another system, possibly causing damage or fire hazard. For God’s sake, please do not try to ignite the gas coming out of the supply lines. Someone told me that they wanted to see if it was working. Yes it will ignite, faster than you can get away and with 3 times more combustion than gasoline.


Check the jar once a week or so, to get a feel for how quickly the distilled water is being used up.  Depending on the amount and type of driving and the engine, the distilled water may last for two months or more.  A one electrolyzer system usually will last from 800 to 1000 miles before needing refilling.  We recommend you keep the water level to about one inch below the lid (completely full is about a half inch below the rim or glass exposed) to half full.  Keep in mind the part of the wires submerged in the water is what is making the hydrogen, therefore, more is better.  A full or near full electrolyzer will be producing the most HHO and giving you the most benefit. There is no set time when you need to fill the electrolyzer. It is up to you to do the maintenance as often as you like.  We also recommend after using your first two tanks of fuel, clean and recharge the electrolyzer.  When metals are manufactured they go through a process that can leave some residue.  After the electrolyzer has run for a while it will clean itself.  This is why we suggest recharging the electrolyzer at this time.  When recharging the electrolyzer we start with ½ to 1 teaspoon of pure baking soda and add the distilled water. You can add more baking soda, in small increments, and this may increase HHO production, but be careful not to overheat the electrolyzer with to much baking soda.  Visually inspect the system for leaks, cracks, loose wires or anything unusual when you recharge the system.  Our system should provide many many years of reliable service.


Your responsibility is to experiment with this technology, including choosing the right vehicle for the job, installing and maintaining the system of your choice in that vehicle, as well as tweaking it to its maximum performance. You may ask for guidance of course. But it's your responsibility. And it's your responsibility to have it installed, maintained and to conduct experiments in a safe and legal manner.

Another responsibility you have, in our humble opinions, is to contribute to the public's trust and belief in this technology. If it didn't work for you, please investigate why this has happened. Even if you decide to quit, we expect you to respect others who are still trying and those poor countries who desperately need energy solutions however partial, by NOT defaming this technology and those promoting it.


I hope reading this website has enhanced your belief that water-to-energy is not a hoax and is not complicated or expensive rocket science either. Your next step is to make full use of the knowledge you now have, for your benefit and for the benefit of your environment.

If you are reading this website and you don't yet have a system to install in your car or fleet, we invite you to E mail, call or fax us for more information.  As this technology is so clearly a win, win with no downside, we know you will purchase a system(s) from How2SaveFuel.com.

Thank you for visiting this website and Happy Mileage!
