ABSTRACT
In this work, the performance of an SI engine powered with both gasoline and HHO as supplement fuel was studied and compared with pure gasoline-fuelled engine. The amount of HHO gas quantities added was 1, 1.5, and 2 LPM. The engine speed was varied from 1350 to 2250 rpm. The performance was found by measuring the engine torque, the brake power, the brake specific fuel consumption and the thermal efficiency, while gas analyzer was used to measure the amounts of nitrogen oxides and carbon dioxide that are emitted from the engine during operation. It was found that the engine performance was best when 2 LPM HHO gas was used with pure gasoline fuel. Further, it was found that, at high amount of HHO gas addition, the nitrogen oxide decreases. Further, the CO level increased when using HHO gas as supplement fuel.
Key Words: HHO engine, HHO fuel, Engine performance, HHO fuel cell
