    By all means buy one of those hydrogen kits, they do a great job.

    I would be more interested in converting to natural gas. Low price for the fuel and no road tax.

    I agree with Galt, copper. Those things are absolutely great. I have a friend of a friend who tried one, and it decimated his fuel costs, and was easy on the environment. Even has a union label on the side, and a "safety valve" which makes it possible to smoke while operating it (I wonder why Bush would never allow these to be sold? Probably in cahoots with Big Oil, I guess).


    Buy with confidence. Just make sure you follow the instructions...

    Look at the website and be sure you are talking about hydrogen.

    Propane conversions may be what you are looking for. CNG - compressed natural gas - is great but not very available.

    Propane is not available for fuel injected vehicles but some are available for
    carbs powered.

    We actually experimented with making our own kits. Very hard to get the correct voltage, metering of fuel. It did help on the fuel economy. You may be better off spending some money and buying one with all the engineering done. When you say 2003 6.0 are you referring to a diesel or chevy gasser? If diesel you can add a tuner and increase fuel economy into the 20+ miles per gallon very easily. Good luck,Tim

    Didn't an exploding fuel cell almost do in Apollo 13?
