Hydrogen Enhanced VW Beetle Mileage Tested
ERRATUM: I posted 250ml... it's actually only 140ml. plus the fuel in the
line and the float - I estimate about 60ml. more. Lets just put this on
200ml. (edited: 03/17/09) Thanks CR4 engineers for pointing this out.
The purple bug gains 100%!!! with HHO.
Before... only 1.5km per 200ml. Gasoline without HHO.
Now... 3 km. per 200 ml.
Doing the math:
Before: 7.5 km per liter
After: 15 km per liter
This is double the mileage!
I made 3 tests without HHO and this car always stops in the same spot no
matter what driving style I did. But after I connected HHO... it made
double. I am just amazed. I dont normally impress myself since I have a
habit of always pushing my self to my standards or limits. But HHO simply
Proven! Tested! Concluded!
Jose's Honda Civic EK Hatch - BRtv Episode 5
With the popularity of the motorsport of drifting rising by the minute,
there's been a great shift from the Import or Tuner crowd from FWD cars
(front wheel drive) to RWD (rear wheel drive). More and more manufacturers
are adding affordable RWD models to their line ups, and it doesn't look
like that's going to change any time soon (thank the Car Gods). There was
however a time when the Tuner world was mostly flooded with FWD cars with
the Honda brand in the forefront. In the late 90s' when Honda dropped the
EK Civic body, particular the SI model, eclipsing it's predecessor, the
brand seem to do no wrong. Aside from the legendary SI model Civic, the
single most desirable EK one could own was (arguably) the hatch. In it's
stock formation, the car is as cookie cutter, gas saving commuter as they
come. Actually that's something easily said about just about any Civic.
But with just a little tweaking, some nice shoes, maybe a lip, a wing and
dare I say a "B" series engine swap, and these little light ways could
easily be turned in a super fun rides. I would venture to say that these
are the new classics, and if you happen to own a EK hatch or SI, take care
of it, restore it, and watch it increase in value. These will be the cars
we all try to outbid each other at future Barrette-Jackson or Mecan auto
auctions. That said, I like to take a moment to introduce our next episode
of Braggenrites.com TV (BRtv). In it you guys get to meet Jose Hernandez
Diaz and his sick Honda Civic EK Hatch.
This guys is as passionate and detailed oriented as any with his ride as
any car guy. He took his mild mannered hatch and turn into a complete eye
catcher, by adding just the right amount of cool, to just the right parts.
The car features a totally rebuilt, souped up and turbocharged motor, redone interior with a set of
racing seats and a custom roll cage, and a sick stance (to say the least).
The car is tastefully done with a simplistic aggressiveness that seems to
contradict itself and compliment itself all at the same time. The engine
bay (it's most attention grabbing feature) is shaved of all "unnecessary"
parts and painted white, of all shades; a looks that makes the Hatch stand
out even more. We loved this car once we first saw it, and knew we wanted
to shoot it and share it with the world. It's owner Jose, is a kool a kat
as any, and hung with us for a couple of hours so that we could do that.
We opened his bag a tricks to let you all know everything about his car
(all except the wheel brand) and what all he did to take it to the level
seen here. We wanna send a huge shout out to him and hope you guys enjoy
the update. For more on this episode (pics and so on) see the full gallery
