Fuel Vaporises

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 :)

Re: Fuel Vaporises

It has also been independantly verified, and meets all ADRs

Should also add this guy intends to produce it locally, generating around 200 jobs is Geraldton.

Re: Fuel Vaporises

Sounds like snake oil, Brockies Polariser ,Hiclone etc.
$1500 buys a lot of fuel.

Re: Fuel Vaporises

Did you read the paper?

Theory sounds right.
All the piping looks almost like a turbo setup :)

Got test vehcles which have travelled a combined total of 1.8 million ks, and says its been independantly verified.
Wouldnt mind seeing if it actually does work

Re: Fuel Vaporises

Yes I did read the 2 page article. I hope it works. The West got 37mpg,in a Falcon, on a trip too Pinjarra. Would like Curtin Uni to test it. Hiclone has independent tests that claim the Hiclone works. But ask anyone who has bought one and its a different story. They cann't repeat the results that Hiclones independent testers got. I asked Hiclone if I could have one and if it did as claimed, I would buy it. They declined.
Call me suspicous, but until double blind trials are done, I will reserve my judgement. I hope it does work though.

Re: Fuel Vaporises

I imagine the fuel company's would not be happy if this worked.
Cheers John
