Hydrogen Fuel Cell for your Saab

saab-93-9

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. CAN YOU RUN ON TAP WATER?

A. Yes but the impurities in tap water mean the fuel cell would need cleaning more often and would not produce so much HHO gas. Bottled or distilled water is much better, as it's purer. 1 litre of water produces 1800 gallons volume of gas! This means it does not need 'topping up' very often.

Q. WILL IT WORK ON MY CAR?
A. It will work better with older cars that do not have computer control over the fuel mixture (pre 1995). It works particulary well with diesels (& turbo diesels). Petrol vehicles after 1995 may need some extra equipment and small modifications to work correctly but can still benefit from this supplemental fuel cell system. It will work on 99% of engines that use the internal combustion engine.

Q. CAN I RUN ON JUST WATER?
A. No. 100% water cars are in development, but a long way off being released to the public. With this revolutionary technology, you will easily be able to increase your mileage, save money on fuel and radically assist reducing emissions and protect the environment.

Q. HOW MUCH WATER DOES IT CONSUME?
A. Very small amounts about 5cm per 300klms or 480 miles.

Q. IS THIS GOING TO BE DANGEROUS UNDER MY BONNET?
A. No! Although Hydrogen is a highly flammable gas, it is only produced when the ignition is switched on and it is fed into the engine and burned immediately (this technology is sometimes referred to as 'Hydrogen on Demand' for that reason). Even in the unfortunate case of a collision, there is no extra risk of explosion because there is no Hydrogen “tank” to ignite. Any unburned gas that did escape (this could only be the tiny amount held within the inlet pipe) would disperse immediately as hydrogen is seven times lighter than air. Basically you get the power of a hydrogen with the safety of a glass of water.

Q. DO YOU USE QUALITY PARTS?
A. Our fuel cells are of robust construction, made to withstand the rigours of road use. Unlike some units, our fuel cells are built to engineering standards with over forty years of car construction experience behind it and thousands of successful installs throughout theworld. Other companies use glass storeage jars! However, we have our fuel cells specially made out of bullet-proof plexiglass, capable of withstanding very high temperatures. Internally, we only use 316L stainless steel plates not wire, as some companies do.

Q. WHAT HAPPENS IF I WANT IT TAKEN OFF MY VEHICLE?
A. We can do this for you and it only takes about 20 minutes to remove. If you want it moved to your new vehicle we can do this for you also. Cost depends on the vehicles involved. Please call or email for a quote.

Q. HOW MUCH MONEY WILL I SAVE?
A. This is a difficult one to answer as each vehicle is different and each person drives differently. You will see an improvement of between 15% and 70% (we have heard of certain vehicles in the US obtaining 250%, obviously they only did a handful of miles to the gallon in the beginning and may be open to exageration!). The average is 20-50% improvement in MPG. We try not to give over zealous claims so not to disappoint. Most people are extremely pleased with the results.

Q. HOW LONG DOES THE EQUIPMENT LAST?

Q. HOW LONG DOES THE EQUIPMENT LAST?
A. We would hope for the life of your vehicle, however, it is early days yet and we do not have decades of data to work with. Fuel cells we fitted two years ago are still going strong and no signs of fatigue as yet. There are no moving parts to replace. The fuel cell comes with a 12 month guarantee.

Q. IS THIS PROVEN TECHNOLOGY?
A. This technology has been around for decades but it is only now, that the prices of fuel are escalating, has it had the innovation and financial backing it needs to develop. We are learning all the time, however, now we are only making minor improvements on the basic simple principle. Evolutionary technology not revolutionary.

Q. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIT?
A. It depends on the vehicle but somewhere between 2 and 3 hours on average.

Q. WILL IT AFFECT MY INSURANCE OR WARRANTY?
A. This is a fuel enhancement system.Because it’s semi-permanent, is not considered to be a modification (it’s classed as no different to putting a high octane fuel in your tank). For this reason, it should not affect your insurance premium or vehicle warranty but you must inform them or they may invalidate your insurance.

Q. DOES THIS SYSTEM WORK WITH LPG OR BIODIESEL?
A. Because you already have the greatest gain from the LPG, the hydrogen will only make a small difference of about 10%. However, if used with Biodiesel, this will give greater gains in fuel economy than using normal diesel fuel.
