Well, for the 'sound crazy' thread, here are some more theories..
About electrolysing water vapor, steam, there is some logic to it:
since we split the H2 and the O from the water, the higher temperature the water is, bigger the distance from its molecules, so it should be easier to electrolyse;
haven't you thought about Paul Pantone's engine, since the water vapour passes thru a thin space, with a wobbling steel rod in high frequency vibration, could be electrolysing the water by pressure and HF vibration? He also recirculates gases from the exhaust to heat and push vapours.
some companies produce on-demand hho but first they recirculate the HHO into the water reservoir, so the water being electrolysed is saturated with free H2 already?
Se if we use electricity to separate the H2 and O, it wouldn't harm if we steam the water first, and even recirculated some H2 before entering the dry cell..
I also compare that water injection in high rpm/high performance cars; at 7000 rpm, injecting a steam of nebulized water thru a nozzle into the admission or combustion chamber is - in fact - cooling the combustion chamber a little, but also gives some extra-HPs: some say it is because of the cool down, but I believe it is also using H2 and O separated inside the chamber. We did that on turbo mitsubishis (eclipses, 3000gts, eagle talons and plymouth lasers)...
Well just my 2c for the crazy ideas, take care!

Currently researching on:
- Al3O2 .5 micron-spheres blasted to Ni-plated SS electrodes
- Hydrophilic center-cell tissue spacers
- Neoprene pressure builder in HHO outlet associated with pre-cell water pump
- Ni-Ti (.016") filaments welded to SS electrodes to guide current distribution
- Organic Polymers (selective membrane, electrode life, solid electrolyte, etc)
