In a reciprocating engine, water injection systems are used for the same purpose... in essence, the water isexpanding inside the cylinder, and basically using it like a steam engine, but combining the "boiler" process into the cylinder, and using the burning gasoline to create the steam.

thats not correct. water injection is actually used to lower combustion temperatures to avoid detonation or pre-ignition mostly on turbo or supercharged enigines. since the pressure is much higher from cramming all that air in there it causes higher combustion temperatures which isnt good. the water acts sort of like octane. you also need to have it misted in with the air and fuel. i wouldnt pour water into my gas tank.

“ . . water injection IS used quite frequently. In a jet engine, a mist is sprayed into the combustion chamber. When the fuel is ignited, it obviously expands and creates the thrust. The water introduced into the combustion process expands as well from the intense heat, further adding to the overall thrust . . “

" . . the air to air intercooler has been used in many production turbo/supercharged street cars effectively. I read a lot about turbo charging and any reduction in intake charge heat is a good thing. like I mentioned in my first post, the high pressure intake air is hot and that’s not good for efficience. that’s why people use things like water injection as well.”

Earth Scum are you crazy put water in your tank and you’re going to want to beat your self to death, it will probably run instead of having a V8 you will have a V1 AND IF IT EVER goes below freezing you will be looking for a new car. IMO. [Edited by Don W]

there was a system that mixed water and diesel i believe to improve the fuel econemy, water was also used in 500cc gp bikes although it wasn't injected into the engine, it was injected into the exhaust pipes this somehow increased and improved the torque that the engine produced i believe.

Q. Why is there no information of the actual modification process on the website?
A. We are providing this information on the DVD due to the amount of information and the customization processes for your particular engine, which depends on number of cylinders, etc. as well as complete instructions and how you can purchase the modification kit.
(emphasis added by Earthscum)
Q. Does it really work?
A. The Gas Advance System simply vaporizes the fuel using the exhaust itself. With a patented system, a magnetic reactor rod ionizes the fuel during vaporization. Internal combustion engines utilize oxygen through air intake and hydrocarbons through gasoline. Your gasoline engine already uses hydrogen, oxygen, and carbons to burn. We simply use catalyst ionization with the reactor rod separator strategically placed in the fuel line, this vaporization process serrate oxygen, hydrogen, and carbons to burn as elements and do it more efficiently. Hydro-carbons, oxygen, and hydrogen burn more efficient through this patented process.
