Most of the internal combustion engine (ICE) operated by consuming petrol fuel and the petrol price nowadays is keep on inconsistent trending. Switch over to new innovation is needed. Water fuel cell is one of the alternative methods in order to generate gas for ICE helping during the combustion. The aim of this project is to study hydroxy gas ratio for burning process in the engine that can reduce petrol consumption and develop the mix fuel system using hydrogen and petrol for two stroke ICE . Two methods to obtain hydrogen gas are from electrolysis process or directly injected from hydrogen gas cylinder. After that the gas inserted into the air intake of the engine and it mix with the petrol in intake manifold of the engine. The gas mixtures burn in combustion chamber in order to rotate the crankshaft. The percentage of petrol saving and the effect of hydroxy gas are presented and discussed at the end of this report.
