Hydrogen Enhanced ICE at 2010 Los Angeles Auto Shop

The Engineering Economist

With the cost of gasoline(petro) and energy increasing, we would all welcome an affordable approach to saving money. The video below provides an innovative method for maximizing performance for any car.

This done by introducing hydrogen as a catalyst into the engine combustion process. This method improves engine efficiency and horsepower while reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions. The catalyst (hydrogen) provides an alternative reaction pathway to the reaction product. The rate of the reaction is increased as this alternative route has a lower activation energy than the reaction route not mediated by the catalyst. The activation energy defines the minimum energy required to start a chemical reaction. 

The fuel has enough oxygen to allow the fuel to react completely and this allows complete combustion to be achieved.
