Theres an article in todays West Australian newspaper about a new fuel saving device.
A guy in Gerlaton has made, and patended, a fuel vapouriser which he claims cuts fuel consumption by 40%, reduced emissions by 80% and improved torque by 20%
Basically it uses heat from the exhaust to heat air, which is then mixed with fual and vapourises it. Giveing more effecient combustion. Sounds good enough.
And when tested by the newspaper it averaged 7.7l/100km, with an average speed of 85kms/hr over a 100 km round trip. On a AU falcon wagon
He says upto 1000km on a tank can be expected
He estimates the systems will cost around 1500 each, and should be on the market within 12 months.
So at roughly the same price as a gas conversion, and with gas prices set to rise, it looks to be a good possible alternative.
Just thought id post that up incase anyone was interested :)
