Default Hydrogen Generation

Has anyone experimented with on-board hydrogen generation?

I played around with one last year when gas got so expensive, but other priorities got in the way since then. The design I tried out (water4gas) was a total failure for hydro output volume, but I've seen other designs on the web. There's one that I want to try next (smacks) but I'm wondering if there's anyone on the forum that has built anything like this.

I learned volumes on engine computer control of all systems but I still have many unanswered questions on how to gain control over the fuel delivery system when using hydro. There are many designs of electronic circuits as well as some mechanical devices to compensate the o2 sensor outputs but I don't know of anyone who has actually tried these things.

Are there any serious experimenters out there?

A coworker tried the same thing on his Ford. O2 sensors couldn't be fooled, but all he tried was antifoulers on the O2 sensors. I've read about black boxes that would allow you to trim the voltage output of the O2 sensors to make up for the lean condition created by burning the hydrogen/oxygen added from the fuel cell. From what I've read, the homemade systems can be tweaked to increase the output. I've deleted the links since, but there is some good data out there. I didn't have the time or $$ to tackle the O2 sensor issue. If I get some time, I'll try to find some of those articles again.
