There is nothing for free and if the techniques you are trying were effective don't you think one of the car makers would jump on the band wagon.

 

More power is used for the electrolysis than gained by the introduction of hydrogen.

The resultant energy obtained from a reaction is always less that the energy required for the reaction.

There is no such thing as perpetual motion.

And while your engine management may be able to compensate for the added unmetered fuel you're introducing, it is exactly that, unmetered fuel.

Curious to see if this is a hydrogen powered canoe.

In reply to troborty :

You will find that we are a skeptical pragmatic group.

Can provide any kind of 'proof' that adding Hydrogen to the fuel yields an overall energy gain when energy to create the Hydrogen is factored in?

Perhaps solar cells that drive the electrolysis? That would yield 'free' energy, thermodynamically speaking. Essentially the H would act as the storage medium for the solar energy.

Out of curiosity, how are you introducing the hydrogen to the engine? As a gas in it's native state, are you plumbing into the intake with a pressure vessel like a nitrous feed, or just free venting into the intake stream?

Good luck.  Physics is not on your side here.
