hydrogen system

I've been researching a little into putting a hydrogen system in my jeep to boost fuel economy. Has anyone tried this and if so does it work?

Im guesing a year or so,Unless you find a deal on an engine then I wouldn't recommend doing this conversion.I did mine when gas was $5 a gallon and was planning on duing the veggie oil conversion next but fuel has came back down considerably so still might be in the future but don't know cuz i'm on to my next project now.lol

What did it end up costing you to do the swap? How much weight was added?

I got about $3000 wrapped up in parts and did all the labor/fab work myself.I originally had a 258/Bax10/231 set up and with the diesel it added 300 pounds total.
