I just skimmed it. I'll take a closer look later but I have my doubts.
If its some damn easy why isn’t it mainstream?

By the way the domain is registered under the organization name Viscon Canada. Anyone ever hear of Viscon other than the contact lens company?

I've seen something like this before if not exactly this, and I think there has been a discussion or two about it here. To convert water to hydrogen takes energy supplied by the vehicle right, and that energy comes from the gas powering the car. So even if it can produce hydrogen at a rate that would affect engine operation it would not be more efficient due to the engergy spent converting the water. An engine will probably run more effciently on hydrogen vs hydrocarbons, ie gas, but not with this hybrid setup.

There's another company doing this--has more truck/diesel applications..
I posted it a while back -let me see if I can locate that thread..
This is the article, I think...

Particularly, since this hydrogen is made from electricity, most semi's idle a lot, and the alternator energy consumption is not noticed...
Not hydrogen powered solely, just an efficiency boost.

On diesel's it might be different but on our cars especially, which use the O2 sensor signal as a means of regulating fuel, you have to wonder what effect the H2 has on the exhaust gas composition. It may simply be that the H2 creates more hydrocarbons and fakes the PCM into dumping less fuel into the system causing the car to run lean. I don't know if that's really the case but it's at least one possibility ...
