You may want to take into account the energy required to turn the alternator in your energy in side of your equation

In terms of thermal explosive energy-yield (gtnt) under dynamic pressure of compression
approximately 7.4 (µl) microliter of a liquid-volume of a water droplet per injection cycle is all that ~s
required to run the Dune Buggy 1600cc 50hp VW I.C. engine at 65 m.p.h. on the open road; whereas,
a typical 325 hp diesel I.C. truck-engine would require about 48.1 (µl) microliters of a water droplet
per injection cycle to accomplish the same open road performance. (see WFC Water vs Gasoline
Energy Content Equations (memo WFC 429).
How much LPM water is this for the typical diesel truck?

48 uL per power stroke... lets round to 50 uL

1/4 cycles are power stokes

say 2000 rpm? ... then ...

500 power strokes per minutes

50 uL * 500 power strokes /min = 25,000 uL/minute

= 25 mL/minute, or you could say

40 minutes per liter...

thats the basic idea, change the numbers to match your rpm and engine (2 stroke or 4 stroke)

The above number, 50 uL per injection cycle, is based on the hydrogen content of water being 2.5x gasoline, you can see this calcuation done out in full in the independent report, it's not a magic calculation that has anything to do with the WFC tech, so it's the same as saying a diesel engine uses 20 uL per injection cycle of Diesel fuel... which would vary depending on your engine

Thanks.
Now let's hope the water doesn't get consumed, or else we'll face a different problem  .
