SUV Fuel Economy – Tips to Reduce Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) Gasoline Consumption

Looking for ways to improve a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) fuel economy? Many SUV owners love their vehicle because of its spacious interior, stylish design and raw horse power from the engine. Unfortunately, SUV has a very low MPG compared to other cars on the road. With the rising gasoline prices, SUV owners are faced with an inflated gasoline expense bill. Many people are frantically searching for ways to reduce the fuel expense. One solution to reduce SUV gas consumption is to supplement the engine with hydrogen gas (H2). How does the concept work? This article will reveal the secret of using H2 on SUV to improve fuel mileage.

Hydrogen gas is the most abundant element around. It is clean, efficient and has a very fast burning rate. These properties make H2 a perfect energy source for a car internal combustion engine. An engine is not capable of running on pure hydrogen gas yet. However, an engine is capable of using both gasoline and H2 at the same time. In essence, the engine can be converted into a hydrogen hybrid power plant. The H2 needed for a SUV can be generated from water with an electrolysis device. This is possible because water is made from 2 part hydrogen and one part oxygen thus its name H2O. To improve a SUV fuel mileage, the H2 is to be diverted into the engine air intake system. SUV owners that uses a hydrogen hybrid engine will experience a higher fuel mileage from their vehicle.

Most people are not sure how to convert a conventional engine to burn hydrogen gas. The conversion process is quite simple and any with some mechanical knowledge will be able to do it. Most of the parts needed for the modification can be bought from a hardware store. What you will need is a step by step instructional blue print. Most of the conversion guide can be purchase from the internet.
