Hydrogen Conversions

Posted or updated 11.09.08 by Chuck Russell


Hydrogen Generators are often called convertors, and have been around for many years. They use water and electrolysis to separate the hydrogen and oxygen. I will be blogging my experiences with two vehicles. Vehicle number one is a small car, 1998 Saturn SL1 with a 1.9 liter engine. It has been running as a hybrid on hydrogen made from water, and gasoline for 4 months now. The other vehicle is a 2008 Toyota Tundra Double cab with a 5.7 liter engine which I have just started converting. This conversion is on going.

The first time I became interested in Hydrogen as a fuel source was when oil prices shot up to near $150 a barrel, and gasoline cost $4 a gallon. This 1998 Saturn SL1 was in good shape, driven by my wife and with low miles. The car was not worth a great deal of money, and it was the perfect size to test with. It is light weight, and has a polymer body and small engine.

I will start with this Saturn SL1. It has been a learning experience, but also a pleasant surprise. I hope it may benefit others who are considering this technology. My successes and failures will hopefully shorten the learning curve.
