Yeah I guess some people cant accept the fact that they are wrong about something and have to blantentantly attack someone (With no knowledge of the subject at hand) becuase they don't agree on their views. Its a shame that we have so many of these people on ATS. Regardless I cant believe that people accept the claims of some of these posters its truey mind boggling. Claims of HHO injected carburators and outrageous claims of spectacular gas mileage in cars from the 60s and 70's with the only proof being their first hand experence and ability to google some fancy wording to back their claims. Any hard evidence is always few and far between. I really really wish we could DENY IGNORANCE like this site promotes but it always ends up the same with people getting frustrated with thier lack of intelligence and resorting to name calling and insults.

good luck just remember it is 2012 now , not 1977 , the latest i could find infomation on in the above links....still on carbys back then

some history on tom ogle mentioned in all autowrenches sources..

"The El Paso Public Library has a considerable newspaper-clipping file about Ogle.

Brief discussion of Ogle: www.automotiveforums.com... .
"...the company that bought him out later reported that his
designs didn't work." and "Tom Ogle, died under somewhat mysterious
circumstances - just shortly after selling out to a company in Seattle."

Im new here. This is a pretty old thread I understand. But I feel as if I needed to comment here. First of all just wanted to say that though I have not reached 100+ mpg I have reached around 70 mpg on a chevy straight six. The reason I do not give out all the info on how i achieved such a thing is because oil companies are not the only greedy ones. I am as well. Im not going to just share with the world something that has taken me 10 years to figure out. I have had people approach me and ask to see the engine, etc... I just tell them I made it up to mess with a friend. I have plans beyond mpg and profits at this point. This is off topic but some of you say why would anyone including big companies want to hide something efficient........I dont know why....but i can say this.....I have invented many things....to save me money.....my electric bill is probably 70% lower than most anyone in the world with a family......my water bill is the same........for example....i simply created a system that refilters the bath water to reuse in the shower and in the toilets...i have modified the toilets to use less water and modifed the shower to have more pressure with less water....i also trap rain water and reuse it.......it didnt cost a lot....it doesnt take up any space but its saves me hundreds of dollars........i know im not the only person in the world that can figure it out.....its pretty simple....BUT you cant buy my set up or one like it at lowes or home depot....so does that mean its not possible? NO because Im doing it..........NOW........for you people that say put your money where your mouth is.....I WILL..........but you do the same..........If you want to make a bet with me saying im full of BS........then lets do it.......pm me........lets set something up........Im more than willing to prove to anyone that wants to wager and make it worth my while!

So you trap and store rain water, but it takes up no space. That is some pretty impressive technology. Sell that and you will be able to buy your own continent.

It's BS for the simple reason that you would patent what your MPG increase technology and sell it and be the richest man in the world in one day.

Once again, all your evidence is first hand knowledge that you wont share because the Big oil companies will come and kill you...OOOOHHH KKK. No offence buddy but your just spewing the same crapola as that Autowrench guy..and again I dont believe your story either about 70MPG from a chevy Straight 6...unless thats what it gets on a dyno stand and you estimated the approx gas mileage...even still its still an outlandish claim. So please dont tell me how you make your straight 6 get that kind of gas mileage, make a uncut unedited video of you pouring a gallon of gas in your empty gas tank of your straight 6 vehicle and then videotape the odometer as you get your 70MPG....then ill believe you....sounds fair to me.

BUMP...

87RON??? It that even petrol? lowest pump fuel here in Au is 91RON

I actually came here from a Google search trying to find a satisfactory answer to the question:
Why do American V8's (V8's sold in the US including ones imported, not US engines sold in other markets) have an exhaust crossover pipe (H-pipe, X-pipe)?

The answer I frequently encounter is to do with firing order of the Detroit V8s. Its unsatisfactory because German V8's have a different (more logical) firing order and they still require a crossover pipe... but ONLY in the US market.

An example would be my car, a Mercedes-Benz 380SE, I live in Australia and this car is the Australian/Swedish version. My car has no exhaust crossover--US version of the car do have a crossover.

Australian cars that were sold with 351 Cleveland or 350 SBC, also do not require a crossover pipe. Firing order is the same as it is be for the same engine sold in the US market.

I had yet to find a satisfactory answer on any of the automotive forums I lurk... but lets get back to that in a sec.

Before anyone trolls me with "but does your old car have [insert modern feature]? Yes it does, it is an S-Klasse Mercedes-Benz.

A race car driver (can't remember his name) took a diesel engine, ran the fuel vapor through holes bored in the engine block to heat the fuel then turbo charged the vapor injection. He also turbo charged the exhaust to increase efficiency. He reported getting extreme mileage numbers close to 200 mph and he also got very high performance.

Smokey Yanuik? I know he developed an engine that would get +400mpg, he showed it to the boards of both Ford and Chev. I thought it was a petrol engine (SBC?), not a diesel tho, but the principal on how it worked was more like a diesel but using the heat to ignite the fuel and not a spark. Its definitely worth looking into his story because he was quite close to the Detroit cartels. He spent his later years looking for oil. The only reason I know of this Nascar driver is because of his engine. Nascar isnt a thing here.

Preheating air fuel mixture is BS too. Ever wondered why the high performance super/turbocharged engines have got air intercoolers? You actually want the air cold to increase density(more oxygen) and engine efficiency(thermodynamic cycle).


Actually its not, most +1000hp track/drag cars have a fuel pump that also includes a heating element to atomise the fuel. The intercooler you speak of is to cool the air, not the fuel. When you mix warm fuel with cod air it atomises it and it burns better. You can purchase them from Holley or other performance brands.

I had always heard the reasoning behind automakers in the US not marketing diesel cars was the perception of the American people that diesel was a "dirty" fuel. Of course, that is an outdated perception, because of advances in diesel engines and fuel economy. But when most of us think "diesel" we still think of exhaust-billowing semi trucks and sputtering Mercedes and Volvos.

Diesel has its own conspiracy, it caused a world war... there is a great thread on here about it, may have to search.

So back to my question: Why do US V8's have an exhaust crossover? I personally believe it is to do with protecting American oil interests, as well as protecting the Detroit cabal's. If Americans actually drove the same European cars that the rest of the world gets, there would be no Ford, GM or Chrysler left--they just cant compete with European car manufacturers.

Detroit killed the Aussie Ford Falcon out of sheer jealousy that Australians could build a better Ford than they could.

Apologies for the bump.

In 1978 my brother and i worked on a fuel saving device that used vacuum tank instead of a carburetor we had considerable better mileage using a 1979 ford truck with 800lbs.added to it to sway the naysayers from the arguement that it was stripped down for better mileage. I had never heard of Tom ogle. We had a test engine in the garage that ran at 4500rpm for 5 1/2 hours on a liter of gasoline and we used the exhaust to heat the workshop all winter without any ill effects the exhaust didn't even smell we kept witnessed documentation that I still have in my possession along with pictures of the progression of the device. We actually tried to make it catchphrase fire or explode but couldn't do it. We ran a lawnmower engine for 4 days on 2 cups of gasoline try that on a regular carb it'll run for about 40 minutes the system is very rudimentary and there is a very rational explanation as to how it works and I am willing to debate in any forum the merits of the device. Our evidence is well documented and not anecdotal my name is Leslie Clendening and my number is 780 700 7507 call me and learn how wrong you all are.

I was talking to a 75 year old man about the 100 mpg carb.He said he had a old dodge truck years ago that he use to have that was a pig on gas.He said he put a stainless steel screen under his carb to help vaporize the fuel and it almost doubled his fuel economy!He also said something about preheating the fuel before it hit the carb.Going to have to try this out.Great post op thanks.

I wonder if this technology is coming of age. But the disappearances and things probably seem to bug the development of fuel efficient technology. Well, there are still car users who prefer sports cars and all.
