Thanks for the comment. I haven't had any plans to make any money from something like this or really do anything more than share the build with a few
people on the internet. It's only been a few days since I posted this, so I haven't had any problems from posting it yet, I don't think I will. Maybe
I would have problems if I were trying to mass produce it or pushing hard for a lot of people to see it and build their own.
I agree, I don't think you'll have any trouble over it either. I would imagine worst case it will probably just get deleted or something like that.
Perhaps if it were a more sophisticated device that you had obviously spent a lot of time developing, that might attract unwanted attention. Also, as
you said, maybe trying to sell it or promote it too much. Anyhow, I would be curious to hear if you do get any hassle from it.
The historical figures I listed in an earlier quote are just the ones who got some press at the time. It's a safe bet there were a lot more who we
never heard of. A lot of folk myths I've had recounted to me over the years on this one. A simple vapor carb on an old V-8 Ford motor, fabricated
from simple materials(tin cans, steel wool, and duct tape), yielding a reported fuel economy of 70 mpg. A private club of auto enthusiasts, who used
to have a contest to run the most fuel efficient vehicle every year. Using older domestic four cylinder engines(140-180 CID range? I think), they
routinely achieved 1000+ miles per gallon. He said the most common approach was to run a series of long pipes up from the fuel tank, though there
were of course other designs. I know 1000 mpg sounds unlikely. I can't verify these tales, I can only share them.
As to the science of your device, that's pretty simple as you already know, though I'll type it out here for the readers. Gasoline doesn't burn as a
liquid. It only burns as a vapor. All manufactured fuel systems introduce the fuel into the engine intake air stream as a liquid, hoping it will
vaporize before it is ignited. Some of it does, but usually most of it doesn't and is wasted. If the gasoline can be vaporized as it enters the air
stream, the engine can be run much more efficiently, using a lot less gasoline.
Why is this flaw built into our gasoline engines? Well that's a good question, reader. Quite simply, I believe this is a conspiracy. I think it's
more about power than money too. If we all got twice the fuel economy, that really wouldn't hurt the oil companies as much as you might think. They
could just double their prices and still make the same amount of money. Cut production even, and still make their money. The average person,
however, would be much more energy independent if we all had much more efficient engines. This is what I think is truly at the heart of this
