it seems that his key to efficiency is instantaneous burning of the
fuel, ("an explosion" in his words) which will give you engine knock.
High pressure fuel injection is so much more efficient than a carburetor
than a lot of work would have to be done on a carb system to make it
burn fuel as efficiently as a FI engine, then you can work to beat the
FI system. I suggest that you not send him any money!
I think it only works for WebTV users. But only if they already have a
Gotta' be careful, though. You save so much gas that you have to stop
and drain the tank every 100 miles.
I don't know the exact facts but molecular cracking is what brought gas to
where it is today. Before cracking was discovered a ridicously low amount of
useable gas was derived from crude. Basically there is a chemical reaction
that breaks down the complex carbons into gasoline. Cracking molecules
multiplied the amount of gas and lowered the amounts of other wax's and oil
by products. I'm not a scientist and these numbers are just a representation
but lets say gasoline has 23 carbon molecules and wax has 33, cracking
simply knocks off 10 carbons from the wax. I suppose further cracking is
possible and the technology probably exists. But changing from gasoline to
lets say methanol invloves alot more than knowing how to make a car run off
it. Until significant money is invested into the infrastructure in terms of
storage, manufacturing, transporting and safely hauling it around in vehicle
tanks gas is what we are stuck with. Lets face it, oil companies who are
making billions quarterly aren't gonna kill their cash cow by investing in a
new technology. It is a fact that the technology for a hydrogen powered car
that only emits water is available but someone has to put billions upon
billions into it to make it available and safe for everyone.
