Cn,

can you confirm that the extra bubbles are just vapour?

The gas that comes out the exhaust of the vacuum pump are weak gasses. About as powerful as a Bic Lighter.
No popping sounds when lit.  Just a dull red flame that wont stay lit on its own. It just affects the lighter flame... Maybe this gas will work good in the plasma arc accelerator??

What kind of vacuum pump? Try this: Impact Instrumentation (Caldwell, N.J.) MDL # E-12, 12 vdc, 8.0 amps. You'll need to put a pot on it to control the speed. It will pull over 30" HG. Used in ambulances for pure oxygen. Works great! Make sure you use reinforced tubing. Voltar

That sounds like the one to get.   The pot is a good idea to regulate the suction flow rate. I have a regulator on mine which lets air into the system in order to regulate the vacuum. But this mixes lots of ambient air into the charge.

Now that I think about it, the sides of the WFC gets foggy like steam at the top...
The cell may be creating hho and steam at the same time?!

I hate to state the obvious guys, but putting water under a vacuum lowers the boiling point. You will get your regular amount of gas output from the electrolization but the rest is steam. This may be great for a plasma type setup with steam and gas mixed, but it's not going to burn well with a regular spark. Can we do something with the steam before it condenses? ???

Why not just super heat the water under a pressure above the xombustion engine, and release the fuel in the combustion chamber so it can convert instantly from a liquid to it's gas form?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joule%E2%80%93Thomson_effect

I refferanced the Thomson effect thinking steam under a huge pressure drop would freeze or is it the other way around?
