Question by skittle_goddess_2525: is it possible to fool oxygen sensor’s to allow more oxygen in the mix to increase fuel efficiency?
for those who thought i was cheating? *L* i’m not cheating i need the info to figure out this stuff. a group of my friends and i are looking into trying the plans for a water powered vehicle via browns gas, as some vehicles have the oxygen sensors and some don’t , i needed to know for the 2 test vans we are building the test units for. my van is the astro, good van but older and so i volunteered it to test the first go round on. my friend has this van, and thus if van 1 works out with this, then her van will get a unit as well. if it doesn’t work? no loss, if it does though that’d be some significant fuel cost savings. worth the effort to try..yeah? i researched browns gas thouroughly before i even bought the plans. hence all my questions today about vehicles. CHEERS!
just thought i’d let ya know..:D
the way i understand it ( and yes, i may not have it right!! ) on some vehicles the O2 sensors need to be tweaked a bit to allow the browns gas to be used and mixed with the petrol. i might have asked the answer cockeyed, but i kinda get the reason for the O2 sensors and why it needs be tweaked to use the unit that produces the browns gas.
or am i completely not getting this? *L*

yes its possible to fool them, but you wont be increasing efficiency, infact the systems are designed to be as efficient as possible
