The Team

David Thomas, tuned and fixed engines for cars and motorbikes that his father raced. Later he studied engineering, then joined IBM in South Africa as a hardware engineer for thirteen years.

He facilitated setting up a national co-operative for taxi operators in SA, and project managed setting up petrol stations for the taxi co-ops with an independent fuel company.

He researched the HHO industry to find methods of improving the efficiency and performance of the design, knowing that the only way for HHO to advance was to build the product cheap enough so that it paid for itself very quickly and to solve the inherent problems.  A meeting with Paul Mullen of Cubik Innovation sparked the electronic current-mode control of gas output which formed the basis of the new Hoxy Tronic technology.

His tasks are to develop, research and test the new designs and provide sales technical support.
