hho? A quickl spin through Wikpedia just to make sure this wasn't some new acronym for an electrical gadget and I find:

1) Herbig–Haro object
being a "distinct type of emission nebula" formed by a new star, the most I can claim for emmissions is out my Exhaust ports...... so I guess you're not trying to make one of them.....

2) Home heating oil
Mine is sufficiently old I could probaly burn the stuff & generate a couple of gee gees (I did get a clamshell to run on diesel many years ago! - a 30HP behaved like a 2.5, but it ran) I guess you don't want a refinery on board to generate the stuff, so probably not that....

3) Brown's gas and HHO are fringe science terms for a 2:1 mixture of oxyhydrogen allegedly endowed with special properties.
Oxyhydrogen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You seriously talking about this?

Third time lucky - it's snake oil and has been discredited numerous times but people who are selling you something will talk technical bollocks all day long to prove their theories!

I would assume the OP is talking about desalinization.

I don't know of any small boats with desal.

jky - he's talking about seperating the H2 and O of water and feeding that into the engine. See his seperate thread on HHO for car engines.

Yes. I enquire about brown gas hho.
There are some hho cells out there. Some people seem to think they are a magic replacement for petrol. They aren't. But they do assist petrol to combust more efficiently thereby reducing consumption.

Has any one tried one?
