I own a 5.9L '98 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup that currently gets about 12 mpg... I have to commute at least 60 miles round trip everyday to work! I have heard of people assembling simle hydrogen injection systems that use water to boost fuel economy up to 20%. Does anyone know anything about how to do this or where I could find out how to set this up? If I do make this work I would post pics and a tutorial on this forum so that others could also enjoy the benefits!

I've done it before and it doesn't work. But that's not what you asked.

You need a sealed container to store the water. I used ABS and it worked fine. You'll have to insert two plates that have a post sticking out the top of the container. These post will be connected to positive and negative of the battery. You'll then run a hose out of the top center of the container to remove the gas that's generated. I then ran it through a catch loop w/ water in it (gas would bubble through the water. this keeps it from going backwards). Hook it all up to your car and you're good to go.

Do some simple google searching. The plans are out there and easy to follow.

For maybe 2 more mpg's, it doesn't seem practical.
