Brice, I bought some plans for 50 bucks while back on how to do it...I will e-mail them if someone is interested. I plan to do it later this year. HHO and HOD system conversion really does work on some of the older engines like VW, BMW, ETC. You can buy kits on e-bay too....

71 GA Beetle, I have seen that EV kit before. I think is 1200+ and you can get around 60 mile on a charge at 45+ mph....

This is a 1968 Electric Beetle, which was converted
to operate on 100% electric power in 1979. The cost of charging the
batteries is 2 cents per mile. It has a 120/240 Volt built in charger.
Top speed 85 MPH, range 65 miles. The battery pack is 144 Volts,
controller 500 Amps, battery capacity 17 kWh. Maximum acceleration
power is 72,000 Watts, which produce 61 HP. Battery heaters improve the
performance and range. Electric space heaters provide heat through the
heating and window defroster vents. 43,000 miles.

Looks like ya gotcha a mason jar, fuel tubing and some BB's..........
Do a google search on "Hydrogen Generator Plans" and there are a ton.
I think I'm gonna try one of the DIY ones. Not on the dub but maybe the riging lawn tractor. I'll let you know
how it goes or if you don't here back then it didn't go so well.

I agree that gas prices are way too high.......we should invade an oil producing country and actually steal their oil Wink . I don't know a lot about alternative fuels, and the debate about the efficacy of Hydrogen is incredibly complex and extreme on both sides. But hey, you guys and your beetles are getting 30+ mpg (I think??). Not too shabby compared to my 18-20 (depending on number of passengers in the bus and beers in my belly).

True. What about biodiesel? I'd love to convert an old rabbit or something into a french fry smellin' machine.
Anyone willing to donate for the cause?
