WOODSTOCK’S FUEL-SAVING PILOT PROJECT
The City of Woodstock is trialing the use of unique fuel-saving technology, with support from the federal Gas Tax Fund.
A transit bus and a City recycling truck have been fitted with HydraGEN units – small attachments fitted to a diesel vehicle and used to convert distilled water into pure oxygen and hydrogen.
The pure oxygen and hydrogen are then added to the vehicle’s fuel stream, improving combustion and efficiency, and resulting in fuel savings of between 6% and 19%.
As well as reducing fuel costs, the HydraGEN units also lower greenhouse gases.
