Following is Noel Joblin's experience with his Diesel Nissan Terrano in the Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand:
The in vehicle set up was, it is an old Nissan Terrano almost 200 000 clicks, into the input duct to the turbo I tapped and fitted an nipple which accepted a 4mm plastic tube, this tube then connected to the air gap above the charged water, now contained in a 500mil screw top jar.
My vehicle has given me a somewhat cloudy data base as the tests are quite variable and show between 12.5L/100Km and 14L/100Km over two separate 400Km test sessions.
The test run was made up of the following.
Waiuku to Te Kuiti 2 Plus hours, 10.2 L/100Km,
Te Kuiti to Piro-Piro Flats, some bush driving, then back to Waiuku 10.7 L/100Km
Then the fuel consumption reverted back to 11.5 L/100Km
If you looked at the other normal fuel test, and this test was on a lot of hilly road and quite a bit of paddock work and some 4 wheel driving then the figures are much better.

The next session was with a post turbo air bleed into the original jar used to make the charged water, this then pressurised the jar a little, causing an increase of gas purging from the water in the jar into the duct on the vacuum side of the turbo, especially when power was called for, this on top of the rapid production of gas within the jar, and in this set up some steam is also produced which is a further boost.
I have not sensible data to record but my hopes are for about 9L/100K with this set up.
Another observation happened because the air bleed line from the pressure side of the turbo, blue off, this was there is still a noticeable performance increase when using heated water in the gas generator.
Seeing as how I fill up every 400Km then if by using this system I am saving 8 L per fill up or about $16 in the worst case, however if we were to go from 14 to 9 the we save then its 16 litres or about 32 bucks.

Noel's Thoughts And Research On What Is Happening In His Nissan Terrano...
Watergas is gas made by passing an electrical current through a solution of water and in my case baking soda.
In my opinion it is a gas created on unconventional lines in that it is a gas where one hydrogen is bonded to one atom of oxygen and it also has another atom of hydrogen stuck on by some means that I do not understand, but this stuck on atom soon separates and the gas ceases to exist in its useful form.
The gas is therefore a short lived entity; therefore in my recordings of its performance I choose to describe it as a temporary gas.
Temgas can be used in an internal combustion engine.
It seems to be best used as a supplement fuel.
It can be made with only a very small proportion of its total useful energy being used to make it.
My first usage was with charged water.
This was made by passing a 12 volt current through a water/baking soda solution, it was contained in a small glass jar containing say 500mils, the glass jar was sealed, a small pump trickled a small air flow into the water causing a stream of bubbles, there was an output tube and this was immersed into another jar which was open at the top, and this output bubbled the Watergas and the original air into the water in the second jar, distilled water in the second jar and about 1000mils.
My presumption is, Watergas will dissolve readily into water up to an unknown value, and just as easy return to gas.
