Hi,
Has anyone any experience of Hydrogen Generators? My son found them on ebay, they claim to increase MPG but I'm not sure if they will damage the engine?

There are some dedicated forums extolling the benefits and lots of arguments
elsewhere on the net.
As a basic consideration, "generation" the of hydrogen requires electricity
and is not very efficient so the net result is likely to be negative, the
other major consideration is you have introduced a risk of explosion under
the bonnet, most likely one you insurance company is not going to cover.
As to engine damage - I doubt it would harm anything, the amount of hydrogen
produced is tiny compared to the air intake of an engine, main cause of
damage is likely to be an installation that allows air into the intake and
leans the engine, so people claim they have that problems with O2 sensors
detecting the hydrogen, I think it's likely to be wishful thinking!
