GetHydroPower Reports Nearly 2x Highway Mileage Boost in Recent Tests

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, USA -- Gorilla Development LLC has announced the results
of their recent testing of their newest hydrogen boost system, which produced a
1.4-fold increase in city mileage, and a 1.9-fold increase in highway driving in
a test vehicle.
"The Gorilla" 20-cell electrolyzer extracts hydrogen and oxygen from
an electrolyte solution. This hydrogen/oxygen mixture, sometimes called
gas" is drawn into the manifold of any standard internal-combustion
engine -- either gas or diesel -- under a constant vacuum. By increasing fuel
combustion, the extra hydrogen and oxygen allow the engine to derive more energy
from less gasoline. The hydrogen acts primarily as as catalyst in this
case, rather than just as a fuel itself. Increased efficiencies in mileage
vary, depending on engine size, speed, traffic, and other factors.
In the recent testing the mileage improvements were measured by an onboard ScanGauge
computer. The test vehicle was a Ford 2001 Sport Trac 4.0L.
This time the test vehicle was a Ford 2001 Sport Trac 4.0L. The mileage
improvements were measured by the vehicles onboard computer, and recorded by
an externally-connected ScanGauge
computer, which gives at-the-moment mileage readings.
Note that a cars internal computer requires a breaking-in period to
adjust to the input from The Gorilla Electrolzer. The computer in the Ford
rebelled for about 300 miles before it began accepting the new ratios. Until
then, due to the inappropriate compensations made by the vehicles internal
computer, the potential fuel improvements were not being fully realized.
Other vehicle types are much faster in their response time to fuel-economy
add-ons. Thus anyone testing a vehicle with an added Electolyzer should
exercise patience until the car's computer settles into the new fuel/air ratios.
Sometimes, merely disconnecting the battery for a few minutes can reset the
vehicle's computer giving it a fresh start with the new ratios.
Mileage tests on the Ford 2001 Sport Trac prior to installation were 12 MPG city
and 16 MPG highway. After installation of "The Gorilla" 20-cell
Electrolyzer, and after this adjustment period, the mileage improved to 17 MPG
city and 31 MPG highway.
Gorilla Development LLC reports that the greatest increase in mileage was
achieved while driving at a constant 50 miles per hour on a flat road (31 MPG).
The lowest improvement recorded was during typical rush-hour traffic, when
driving 12.2 miles over rolling terrain in heavy traffic with frequent
slow-downs and stops. The trip duration was 35 minutes.
Recordings were also taken at speeds of 60 and 70 mph. At those speeds, results
were 24 MPG - 26 MPG and 20.5 MPG - 22 MPG, respectively.
In the coming week, the company plans to test the performance of a Ford F-350
Powerstroke Diesel, and to post the results at their website on September 22,
