I currently maintain a wet cell in my trunk. Most of the time I don't need it but When I go on long trips I have a small fish tank pump that circulates the electrolyte through a 20 foot long plastic tube which I run inside the rear bumper and back into the cell. Works great!

Don't worry unless the temp starts to go above 140F

Hi Charles: All cells produce heat of course. It is part of the juggling act to maximize the gas while controlling the heat. Circulation is a way of doing that. Specially with a wet cell. I expect the temp will continue to go up without some cooling system. Adding neutral plates slows down the heating process also, while increasing production.

  Keep in mind that raising the bottle type of measurement of gas volume is only an aproximation for the purposes of comparison. Hydrogen is lighter than air and compresses easily. By the time your bottle starts to rise, the gas has had to compress quite a bit to begin to raise the empty the bottle. Better to allow the gas to empty a full bottle by feeding the gas in from the bottom. Maybe you are doing that already. Anyway, hope this helps.

I noticed from one of your blog cmments that you have a 6 plate wet cell and are using a very weak KOH solution. The HHO production must be quite low if you have not had to add any computer controls to compensate for the oxygen sensors. If you use "Super Fuel" you should be aware that it is much stronger then a pinch of KOH in a gallon of water. You will also have a higher corrosive effect because of the exposed plate edges. Electricity likes to take the shortest path and that is from plate edge to plate edge rather than from flat surface to flat surface. If you can keep your plates at least 1/8" apart you can reduce the corrosion and 1/4" is even better. With a dry cell there is less problem.

While "Super Fuel" does reduce amperage draw you may find it will draw at least as much as you are using now but only because your current mix is so weak.

You should see more production but also more heat with only 6 plates. Watch closely  to be sure all is well for the first few days. I f you get a lot of rust or heat,water down the mix and try to increase space between and coat the edges of the plates with marine epoxy if possible.  All the best,  Richard Keough  Moreco Energy LLC

Your "Super Fuel" is in the mail.
