An Engineer friend sent these two videos.
Both are very interesting, but I was a bit surprised with the performance results found in the second video.

Just thinking... Might there be a danger of a backfire explosion without some sort of 'back flow prevention'....?

Back to 1900 technology. Should be titled rediscovering puddle carburetion.

Is not Natural gas in a vapor state when burning in your vehicle?

Amazing how some people are smarter then the engineers.

Daren,

Engineers don't always get it right.

Daren,

"Vapor" & "gas" are not the same thing.

All they are doing is creating a crude carburetor that has little control of the fuel to air mixture.

I have to say I got a good laugh out of the first video and his claims. "Some guys are talking that they are getting 200 miles a gallon running on vapors"
