Angry Running on fumes?

Ok so what gives? Why have we NOT yet seen a production car running on fumes? This could be an awesome advantage for a future Camaro! I've tested it, it works, so WTF??? All these years this has been kept from the public, so the greedy could make $$$$$ from US !!! I have made it work on a small scale engine and it works awesome, so WTF are car companies waiting for? Haven't the oil companies gotten rich enough off of our backs?

I now know it works....it took the ecig/vaporizers becoming popular, but now all kinds of people have videos up on youtube showing how it works! Pretty dam simple, and everyone knows liquid fuel is less flamable than are the fumes...wow one person is interested in saving a **** ton of $$$$$ on gas!!! When we are wealthy driving new Camaros and such, I guess we don't give a crap how much we are lied to and stolen from by sam and his pals....fuel vapors burn completely without emmission of unburned fuel, or the need for emmission controls!!! Wake up folks yall have been manipulated and used long enough, don't you think???

Uh, start a company, develop the conversion kits for ICE vehicles, sell the kits, make enough money to buy a large boat, name the boat "Running on Fumes."

Can you provide a link to some of the videos?

No, that is right in line for him.


The truth is it can't be done because all the fumes are allocated for chem trails.

Re: Running on fumes?

Same ol BS from the peanut gallery....lmao!! Gasoline vaporization. In 1976 shell oil co. Did an opel gt on fuel vapors and got 357 mpg. But I guess yall r doing great, and probably would love to spend more $$$$$ on fuel anyway.

You know the fuel is atomized before combustion in every car on the road right now, right?

Re: Running on fumes?

Actually it was 1973, it achieved 376.59 MPG, and it wasn't an Opel GT ..... it was a 1959 Opel Rekord P1 Caravan. The vehicle did not have the power to operate in stop and go traffic, or to climb hills.



Doesn't add to your credibility when you don't know the basic facts.

Shell Opel

Big Oil conspiracy! 376 mpg Opel uncovered! | Hemmings Daily

snopes.com: Miracle Carburetor

Of course we're all part of the great conspiracy by the oil companies. I've kept my identity on this site hidden for 15+ years, lying in wait, just so I could dispel the revelation of these secret facts. Now I have emerged to continue the secrecy......

Must be sad going through life in such a paranoid existence.

Re: Running on fumes?

Carry on....apparently no ones interested in saving $ on gas! I forgot this site is full of rich folks who buy new cars every few years!! For any of yall broke crackers like me, do some research, it works. We did it in 20 minutes, on a lawn mower which hasn't run in 3 years and had it pulling wheelies...as for not making power, that wasn't the case for this mower, it's running better than it ever did!! I got a ways to go, putting my 2nd gen back together, but I will be setting up my no computer LT1 to run on vapors/fumes when it's ready, so we can test it out on a V8.

Atomized raw fuel, isnt anywhere close to as fine as fuel vapors. Not even in the same neighborhood....
