Uh... google search turns up patent and more:
copy/paste both lines
including a Snopes rebuttal:
But you dont have to read much to see the fallacy involved.
The gasoline internal combustion engine actually runs on gas vapor, not
liquid gasoline. Any claim that the carb directly vaporizes it, thus is
much more efficient, is easily put to the lie, thereby.
Of course, the poster above refutes this by the claim that tetraethyl
lead somehow nullifies the magical conversion of gas vapor to methane and
thus explains inability to produce.
Now, since you can read the patent, is the methane conversion mentioned?
I aint gonna bother... becuse I dont think you can get more methane per
volume out of gas than you can get out of methane, per se.
Yeh, I'm a Krusty old Geezer, putting up with my 'smartass' is the price
you pay..DEAL with it!
