Let's keep an open mind.
This is something that has been making the rounds for decades and a few years ago there was a big push for water contraptions that would improve your mileage by 40% or so.
Farm Show magazine covered it a lot and after dozens of people tried dozens of variations, some people had worse mileage, some people had slightly better, and most had no change.
For each one of these things where there is an example of this, there seems to be controversy.
While logic states that it cannot be done, logic used to be pretty conclusive that the world is flat.
With rocket mass heaters we are still getting people that call bullshit on the numbers.
Frankly, I want these things to be true. Although i am still missing the bits that get me to race out and build something. Or to see a first hand demonstration. Or .... something.
I'm not yet convinced, but I'm open to the idea that it could turn out to be true.

Dale, you are now on freakishly thin ice.

I suspect the weight of the batteries would reduce the mpg, so a balance between power and weight would have to be struck. Then again, running an electrolyzer shouldn't require as many batteries as running an electric car, so maybe the battery bank wouldn't need to be quite so heavy. Guess it depends on how many miles are driven each day between charging.
