According to the Youtube, he went 55, so I assume the suction increases and pulls more fumes into the intake, the faster it goes. I'm sure if one added a little heat to the fuel, it would produce even more fumes.

I wonder how the fuel/air mixture is? There is a sweet spot... also, running a tad 'rich' can help in cooling of the engine...

Curious.....

I am smelling a snake oil pitch here. You can't produce energy from nothing. You can't violate the first law of thermodynamics. Which means that you can't get more energy out than you are putting in. You are still burning gas and you can't get anywhere near 100% efficiency and the mileage numbers he is claiming would seem to indicate he is getting over 100% efficiency.

Back in the '70s that sort of thing was all the rage. We also sucked it thru water and added water vapor to make it go even farther on a gallon of gas.

But, like you say, the laws of physics must be obeyed, and you can't get something for nothing.

Sounds like a conspiracy to me. Did ShellTexcoOil put you up to this?
