I learned something important today. Soldering on circuit boards is really hard, and its very easy to mess up. I had a really frustrating time trying to fix my car stereo. The instructions were simple, but the task was nearly impossible. Word to the wise. Solder does not stick to PC boards, but it sticks really good to metal. Duh. I think I may have fried it beyond repair. Doh! Well, you win some, you lose some. In the end, I also learned that I HATE paste flux. It is of the devil.
On the good side of things, Steven successfully created enough hydrogen from a makeshift electrolysis machine to get the thing to blow up. A jar full of water and baking soda turned into an explosive when electrical current was added for 2 minutes and then the gas inside the jar was lit. He created hydrogen! So, yes, the water4gas concept does work. Now the question is, is it really feasible to use it in your car? We certainly aren't going to tamper with my car, so we may have to wait and use Steven's truck which has an old fashioned carburetor which will make the process much easier and less dangerous.
