Forced Induction - Hydrogen Cell
Does anyone know if there can be benefits gained from running a hydrogen on a boosted application?

a hydrogen cell in a vehicle does not produce enough hydrogen for it to be dangerous. It is never stored always pumped into the engine. I have seen a straight six run on 1 injector with the rest of the cylinders running strong on pure hydrogen.

Did hydrogen cause the Hindenburg accident?
The fire that destroyed the Hindenburg in 1937 gave hydrogen a misleading reputation. Hydrogen was used to keep the airship buoyant and was initially blamed for the disaster. An investigation by Addison Bain in the 1990s provided evidence that the airship's fabric envelope was coated with reactive chemicals, similar to solid rocket fuel, and was easily ignitable by an electrical discharge. The Zeppelin Company, builder of the Hindenburg, has since confirmed that the flammable, doped outer cover is to be blamed for the fire.

I work with a guy that has one on his supercharged V6 Thunderbird. He gets slightly better than stock gas mileage on long trips even with the supercharger and cams. Before all of that he logged 40+mpg on a couple of 200 mile interstate trips.
i am wondering if hydrogen can be used to help stop detonation since it has a 130 octane rating

it appears that if you used hydrogen ALONE that would be a bad idea, but if you mixed it into the system, as in bi-fuel style it would help. according to the all knowing, lol, WIKI
yeah thats what i am saying. hydrogen enriching the system
