A hydrolysis system is designed by pulse width modulation controlled card, powered by hydrogen gas, contained of 24 pcs which were 11×11×0.5 cm3 sized, made of 316L stainless steel, 6 pcs anode, 6 pcs cathode, 12 pcs neutral and contained of 12 pcs which were 0.8×0.7×0.03 cm3 sized, made of resistant caoutchouc. 1 liter of pure water and 120 g KOH were used for hydrolysis system solution. As a result of hydrolysis 4 l/min hydrogen has appeared. This gas is directly connected to the fuel cell at vehicles. In this way the risks are removed that arise during compression and fuel savings are achieved. Pulse width modulation control card is made with microprocessor. Hydrolysis system is powered by 12 V DC 1.5i GLS in 1995, 1495 cm3/91.2 cui, 65 kW/88 PS/87 hp (DIN) 5 speed manual power train vehicle used for test drive. Test drive was conducted on 100 km and results were 10 A at 1000-1500 rpm, 20 A at 1500-3000 rpm, 30 A and over at 3000 and over rpm. So that 35% saving in fuel consumption was measured. This system will be employable water heater at the next tests.
