Oil Industry Suppressed Plans for 200-MPG Car
The original blueprints for a device that could have revolutionized the motor car have been discovered in the secret compartment of a tool box. A carburetor that would allow a car to travel 200 miles on a gallon of fuel caused oil stocks to crash when it was announced by its Canadian inventor Charles Nelson Pogue in the 1930s.

But the carburetor was never produced and, mysteriously, Pogue went overnight from impoverished inventor to the manager of a successful factory making oil filters for the motor industry. Ever since, suspicion has lingered that oil companies and car manufacturers colluded to bury Pogue’s invention.

Maybe your topic will generate new thoughts on this subject.
I think it will a bigger audience in the Peak Oil forum.

from here


1945 Carburetors marked "POGUE CARBURETOR, DO NOT OPEN" were used on unnamed source American Army tanks throughout WWII but were removed from circulation after the war ended. (see 1/7/36) (See 1981, Ultra-Lean carburetors)


if you check that page you will see lots of carburetor designs were suppressed throughout the history of automobiles.

Why wouldn't the auto industry not produce cars that would result in a loss of money for them????
