Mis-information on Hydrogen needing suction, pumps, etc

I have been reading on various forums the discussions relating to hydrogen needing suction to get into the engine and suggestions to use pumps to help it along. I don't know where all this has originated, but it is all mis-leading information.

First of all if you have built a Water4Gas cell ( wire in the jar ) properly (or any other cell) and have tested it to make sure there are no leaks, I guarantee you that the hydrogen and oxygen gas it produces will build up sufficient pressure to force its way to wherever you desire.

The photo above shows a W4G cell with output connected to a 12" bubbler, tie wrapped to the 4th panel support on my balcony, then a return line coming back to the first support and looped around it, with the end in the jar of water.

Most people do not realize that any cell built without leaks has the capacity to blow up balloons that are connected to the output hose. Just having read that the W4G cell can not push the hydrogen from the trunk of a car to the engine compartment, got me a bit upset, so I set up a W4G cell, connected its output to a 12 inch bubbler located 9 feet 7 inches away, took the output from the top of the bubbler back 13 feet 5 inches and inserted the end into a jar of water. Bubbles are coming up in the bubbler as they are from the bottom of the jar. Note: no pumps needed..... Play the video clip below to see a W4G cell running at 4 amps pushing the hydrogen more than 23 feet through the plastic tubing and the bubbler half way in between.

You will note that I have no bubbler valve on the W4G cell, only the output hose and electrical connections. When you have installed your cell in a vehicle, always check by putting the output hose into a jar or plastic water bottle full of water to see if it bubbles..... if it doesn't.... you have a leak and you have to find it, repair it then and there, otherwise you don't have a operating hydrogen cell.

NOTE: As the cell heats up the plastic lid starts to leak, unless you have an O ring or gasket in place and the cell will not produce bubbles at the output any more. Therefor, a bubbler is essential to keep track of what is happening with your system.

The video clip above show the bubbling in the 12 inch bubbler over nine feet away. The bubbler has been in use for several months in my vehicle and is not as clear as it used to be, but looking closely, you can see the action in it.

OK, got that off my chest.... on to other things.

Yes, I was installing a W4G system on a friends diesel pickup. I decided that the best way would be that the jar's bubbler be completely closed. I use this to re-replenish water to the jar only. But I made the switch from Baking Soda to Sodium Hydroxide because of the carbon deposits in the electrodes. The problem was how to filter the output so no traces of caustic gas can get into the engine. This post certainly gave me some encouragement. But will one 6 inch bubbler do the trick? I am using a 6 pack.
