Abstract

Conventional gasoline-fueled internal combustion motors only use a small fraction of the energy in the fuel. This results in significant efficiency losses, harmful and unnecessary emissions, and deposits that cause engine wear. Hydrogen gas (H2) is highly combustible in the presence of the excess oxygen present in the combustion cycle of a conventional 4-stroke gasoline engine. The goal of this project is to retrofit a small internal combustion engine with innovative hydrogen induction technology to enhance combustion, improve efficiency to reduce fuel consumption, reduce emissions, and reduce deposits to improve reliability and extend engine life.
