Q. How can I purchase a EFS unit?A. We sell through authorized resellers and distributors. Please review our Partners page for more information. If there is not a reseller in your state, please contact us directly. top
Q. How is the unit installed?A. Installation is done by a certified installer. Generally, your local reseller or distributor will provide this service. On average, it will take approximately 4 hours to install the EFS unit. top
Q. How do I maintain my system?A. The EFS 350 holds approximately 3 gallons of premix solution, the EFS 150 holds approximately 1 gallon of premix solution. The system will process approximately 1 gallon of premix every 1,500 to 2,000 miles, depending on the driving habits and travel mileage of the vehicle. The liquid level in the unit should be checked as the vehicle is filled with fuel. This will insure that a correct level is maintained in the unit to give optimum performance. top
Q. Is there special water that I need to use?A. The system requires a special premix solution, which can be purchased from the installation center, certified installers, or certified sales representatives. top
Q. How many amps does the system draw?A. The system will draw approximately 8 to 25 amps depending on the vehicle engine size, ranging from light duty to heavy duty vehicles. top
Q. How big is the EPS 350?A. The EPS 350ís dimensions are 17" long, 11" high, and 7" wide. top
Q. Will running the system effect maintenance on my truck?A. Because hydrogen burns at a cooler temperature than diesel, the viscosity of your oil will not break down as quickly. We believe that this will lead to longer periods of time between oil changes, hence reducing your overall maintenance costs. top
Q. How will this effect the power of my truck?A. Because diesel burns slow, not all of the fuel is ignited. The unburned fuel ends up going out through the exhaust system. By introducing the hydrogen and additional oxygen into the engine, it intensifies the initial blast so that most all of the diesel fuel is ignited, producing significantly more power. The average dynotest indicates an increase in torque of approximately 3% to 5%.
Drivers have reported that the increase in torque has resulted in the ability to take inclines in higher gears. The typical statement from drivers is that instead of losing a gear and a split to two gears going up steep inclines, they are now losing a split to a gear. This makes for faster delivery times.top
Q. How will this effect my miles per gallon?A. While there are many things that effect MPG, such as load size, weather conditions, driving patterns etc., we are seeing an average increase of 18% to 40% on passenger and light duty trucks and 4% to 20% on heavy duty vehicles. top
Q. What about your warranty?A. We provide a one year warranty from defects in both materials and workmanship. Extended warranty agreements are also available. top
Q. Can I transfer my EFS system to another truck?A. Yes, it can be transferred from one truck to another. top
Q. Can my system blow up?A. No. There is no pressurized hydrogen in the system. Should an accident occur, the hydrogen would dissipate into the atmosphere. top
Q. How often do I use the EFS Premix Solution?A. To maintain optimum operating efficiency of the system, we recommend a cursory inspection of the system and fluid levels at each fuel tank filling. top
Q. When is hydrogen generated by the EFS 350?A. The unit is wired to work when the engine is running. Hydrogen is only produced while the engine is running. Once the engine is shut off, then the hydrogen in the generator is simply dissipated.
When the EFS unit is operating at optimum levels, the unit produces approximately 1 liter of hydrogen and oxygen every 4 seconds. This is introduced into the engine through the air intake system to mix with the fossil fuels in the combustion chamber.top
