We had heard a lot about the water for gas car, and decided to build water injection for my car. The process didn't look that complicated after we had downloaded the plans. Thankfully we didn't need any real mechanical ability as we didn't possess tools or capabilities beyond the ‘handyman’ level.
Our family had an older second car, a ‘92’ Honda Civic and decided that would be the vehicle we would use.
In learning how to build water injection for my car it didn't take long to figure out where everything goes. Being a bit of a technical guy (without mechanical skills) I like to know how stuff works and the water car concept was pretty easy to understand.
Water is broken down into a very fine mist, almost like fog and is then slowly injected into the gas-air mix to elevate the gas mileage. Well, rightly so you will say that water doesn't burn. How does this work? The component parts of water are hydrogen and water, with hydrogen being very flammable containing a lot of energy. It works by adding this energy to the gasoline and actually increasing the combustion capacity without losing power. There isn't that much water used really in the system either, only about a quart every 2 weeks or so.
What will you need?
The water car conversion took us about a day to complete with the two of us working on it, my 15 year old son and I. We had located all of the parts we needed quite quickly, within about 3 days and went to work on the project on a Saturday in April.
Living in a rural area does have its benefits in that we didn't have the usual gawking crowd of onlookers wondering what we were doing that you might have in the city. Even still we did have to stop twice for visitors and they invariably wanted to know what we were doing.
They were both skeptical at first of the technology but within an hour of reading the preliminary plans to build water injection for my car they were both lending a hand and asking how they could do the same thing.
We took the time to write down the web address where the plans were located and let them help a bit.
But all those questions!
How much does it cost? We did the conversion for a little over $200 including the plans.
How much gas savings is there?
Well, we have only run the converted Honda fro a little over 2 months now but we have saved on average 43% on our fuel costs or about $30 per week. Not bad.
Isn't it dangerous? Doesn't it produce hydrogen which is explosive?
No, there has never been a recorded accident with the water car conversion.

Build water injection for my car is a great place to start.
Learning how to build water injection for my car has been a great project that has saved us a lot of gas, reduced our emissions and saved us money- give it a try.
Our family has been living off the grid since last year, and loving every minute of it. Learning how to build water injection for my car was just the next logical step to take, and it really has helped our family.
