start with this definition since it's
pivotal for describing the technology
and for understanding the industry. It
started in 2006 as the trademark of
Ozzie's website, his and Bill Lang's
experimental kits, and Ozzie's books.
During 2006-2007, the term Water4Gas
used to mean a low cost DIY technology to
produce hydrogen on demand. In the
public's mind, for the most part,
the home-made glass jar electrolyzer
and nothing else. The official
definition from that period used to
say: "Water4Gas: A
combined technology to convert water
to energy. Consists of an electrolyzer
(or several electrolyzer cells)
installed on board a vehicle or any
other ICE, plus a
set of fuel economy enhancers, fuel
additives and other techniques."
Ozzie Freedom knew all along that the
DIY tech he was
teaching was only an eye opener - to
educate the general public which was
at the time unfamiliar with "HOD"
(hydrogen-on-demand) or "water-fuel"
technology. Being simple and
affordable and easy to replicate,
Ozzie wanted this tech to open the
doors for the big guys - the higher
and more expensive tech - and
therefore insisted that the DIY tech should be
positioned as a door opener and not as
a replacement or rival technology or
cannot be all there is, because not
everybody wants or is able to make
technical things by herself or
himself, not to mention installation,
mileage tuning, etc.
Late 2007 and all during 2008, the
term Water4Gas caught on and became a
household name for anything from
"water car", an obscure term in
itself, to all sorts of versions of HOD systems, books,
videos and plans. Some folks started
naming age-old technologies such as
Dennis Klein's by the name Water4Gas.
Much like the trademark Xerox
(trademark of Xerox corporation) has
become a term for all photocopy
machines and processes, Water4Gas
became the most common term for water
Nowadays, since Water4Gas has expanded
its scope into representing and
actively supporting the entire HOD
industry, and since everybody's
invited to ride the wave, it would be
more appropriate to define Water4Gas
as any technology to produce fuel - or
fuel assistance - from water. Some
portions of the technology are not
public domain and are protected by
Patents and other methods of profit
protection, however the industry as a
whole deserves support for the sake of
the economy and the planet.
Bottom line: The term Water4Gas should
be used to describe any
Hydrogen-On-Demand or Water-Fuel
technology, product(s) or related
service such as HOD
installations and tuning.

Emissions: Let's not
go into science formulas here. I'll
give you a very simple definition: If it
stinks – it's emissions. Harmful
emissions. There are
emissions that are so called
"odorless", but that is a misleading
concept because the body senses it one
way or another. Yes, we have become
numb to harmful, very hostile
emissions. But see, a hungry yet
healthy cat will not touch a spoiled
fish, even if you can't smell anything
"fishy". Old-school chefs will give a
piece of the day's fish to the house
cat. If the cat sniffs it but won't
touch it, the fish goes to the
garbage. Now if you would thoroughly
cleanse your body and move to a very
clean village up the mountains for a
while, immediately after your return
(for possibly a short while before you
become numb again) you'll be able to
sniff all those "odorless" harmful
emissions! Standards of
government-permissible emissions are
way too high health-wise, they are
hostile to life and we should not
agree with those anymore!
Energy: The capacity

electrical work (such as light or
One of the

Free energy: Energy you did not
have to pay for. It's a common
concept between scientists and
"energy experts" that free energy is
physically impossible. They are
right - from their point of view -
however that viewpoint is wrong and
faulty. See, if a paid-for
instrument or process, or just a
change of usage to an existing
instrument, brings you energy or
extra energy you don't have to pay
for, then IN THE BOTTOM LINE (in
other words after your
costs have been paid for)
what you're getting now can surely
be considered free energy. All "free
energy" methods and devices are
based on this same basic principle.
Solar energy is one good example:
you pay for the solar device,
hopefully not an arm and a leg, and
from that point on the sun gives you
(not free yet) energy; the moment
the solar device has finished paying
for itself, it starts to produce
TRULY FREE ENERGY. Get it? Another
example is water4Gas technology –
our "free energy" comes simply and
directly from REDUCTION OF WASTE in
our poorly-designed engines. Since
we have oceans of water, any energy
or energy savings derived CHEAPLY
from water is considered free,
economically speaking. If you have
been conditioned to believe that
free energy is not possible, change
your thinking about it and you'll
see many instances
and opportunities of free energy.

tell your professor...
Fuel: Any substance
(liquid, solid or gas) that releases
its stored heat energy and turns it
into actual heat and motion energy,
when treated in a certain way such as
by burning or by combustion in an
engine. When the fuel is burned it is
destroyed and leaves us with
problematic pollutants. In this regard
(harmful by-products of fuel burning),
water is not "fuel" because when
"burned" it reverts back to water
vapor and oxygen that feeds back into
cell: A device which
produces electricity by using fuel
(such as hydrogen) and a chemical
which reacts with it at two electrical
terminals, thus producing electric
energy that can be used to drive a car
or do other useful work. Calling an electrolyzer
"fuel cell" (or HHO
fuel cell, etc.) is obviously a
misnomer - an electrolyzer
inputs electricity and (in our use)
outputs hydrogen, while a fuel cell
normally takes in hydrogen and out
comes electricity! Those are
totally separate technologies.
However, the public itself is a common
and undeniable source of new words, so
if so many people call an electrolyzer
"fuel cell", at a certain point you
stop correcting them and it becomes a
new term. Where does it stand now,
nearing 2010? I am not sure, time will
Defined by the amount of work (how
much motion, in the case of cars, or
how many hours of operation for a

measured by miles per gallon or
kilometers per litre.
Fuel Heater: A
device to safely heat up the fuel,
using electrical power or
better yet re-circulated heat from
the engine. Reduces surface
tension of the liquid fuel, thus

fuller combustion of that mixture.

that generates some sort of mechanical
or electrical energy, or generates a
substance (as in "hydrogen

stationary engines that are used to
convert liquid fuel to other types of
energy, usually electricity. Sometimes

generic term for the entire "program"
running the vehicle, including its
usage of energy in various conditions.

newer. In some newer models OBD-II is
replaced or supplemented with what's
called CAN (Controller Area Network)

Oz or Ounce:
An imperial (non-metric) measuring
unit. It is used both for volume and

your calculations - mass (weight) or
A non-metallic gaseous element that

or O2 sensor: An electronic
device that measures the proportion of
oxygen (O2) in the gas or liquid being
analyzed. Used in science labs. In
modern vehicles it is a small sensor
inserted into the exhaust system to
measure the concentration of oxygen
remaining in the exhaust gas to allow
the ECU to control
the efficiency of the combustion
process in the engine. A "side effect"
of oxygen sensors is that they can
disrupt fuel-saving technologies that
create a lean
If the engine burns too lean due to any
modifications (such as adding oxygen
from an electrolyzer),
the sensor will detect the mixture as being
too lean, and the
engine computer will adjust the
injector pulse duration, so that the
continues to stay within the stoichiometric
ratio of 14.7:1 on a typical vehicle.
There are ways that the oxygen sensor
can be overcome. Sometimes, a device
can be inserted inline with the
sensor, which tricks the engine
computer into thinking the mixture is stoichiometric,
when actually it is either rich, or lean, and
therefore, this modification will not
be automatically corrected by the
oxygen sensor. [source: Wikipedia]
Oxyhydrogen or oxy-hydrogen:
Another name for Brown's
Positive Crankcase Ventilation, a system using a
PCV valve to
evacuate "blow by
gases" and moisture from the
crankcase of an internal combustion
engine. Well, that's the official
definition anyway... In fact, blow by
gases are a whole lot of junk: burnt
and un-burnt fuel and oil escaping
from the cylinder, past the piston
rings (much more if you have worn-out
rings) during a piston's power stroke,
and into the crankcase. These
by-products of combustion form acid
and sludge in the crankcase and cause
smoke. And, naturally, they do not
help mileage either when the PCV
system "re-circulates" this junk back
into the intake manifold - the
breathing part of the engine. The air
entering the engine should NOT have
sludge added to it! It must breathe
clean air in order to work properly.
And this is where the PCV Enhancer
comes into the picture.
