How to convert 1 gallon of liquid gasoline into 160 gallons of highly combustible fuel vapor

Offshore oil rigs flare the energy equivalent of 40 to 60 billion gallons of gasoline each year.

How much does 1 gallon of liquid gasoline displace as a vapor? The saturated vapor volume of an average gallon of liquid gasoline when fully evaporated is 160 gallons of vapor at 60° F and sea level. When you convert 1 gallon of gasoline into 160 gallons of highly combustible fuel vapor you increase your nation’s fuel supply by 16,000% (16,000% of 1 is 160). If you paid $5 for just one gallon of liquid gasoline you would actually only be paying $0.03 (3 cents) per gallon of fuel vapor.

How can you convert 1 gallon of liquid gasoline fuel into 160 gallons of gasoline vapor and increase your fuel supply by 16,000%?  There are two known and proven ways to convert liquid gasoline into fuel vapor.  One is to heat the liquid fuel before it enters the engine.  The other is using ultrasonic nebulizer technology.

If liquid fuel is heated to a temperature of 450 degrees F, the fuel is fractionalized by catalytic cracking and converted to smaller light molecular hydrocarbons, methane and methanol. Where can you get this kind of heat in order to fractionalize liquid fuel? Manifolds and exhaust pipes can reach temperatures of 500°F to 1000°F.

It is a well documented fact that air pollution from internal combustion engines is caused by unburned carbon fuel. Today, all gasoline powered vehicles burn only finely divided particles or droplets that are sprayed from the carburetor or fuel injectors, into the engine cylinders. This is a very wasteful process of converting gasoline or diesel to energy. 20-30 % efficiency at best. Converting liquid gasoline to a gasoline vapors will easily give 5 times the mpg and near zero emissions.

In the old days engines ran very lean as demonstrated by the fuel needle valve. In the old days just 1 tiny needle valve did the work of 6 to 8 fuel injectors. In the old days all engines ran on a much leaner amount of (less) fuel.

All internal combustion engines were made to run on highly combustible vapor, not liquid. It is well known that fuel-lean running improves the fuel efficiency of all vehicles. In the old days, under cruising conditions, the carburetor engines always ran lean – about 15% excess air. In the old days liquid fuel was reduced (made leaner) to finely divided particles or droplets before they enter the combustion chamber above the pistons. The carburetors reduced the liquid fuel into a very lean fuel mist before the fuel entered the combustion chamber above the pistons. Very high gas mileage is achieved by simply reducing liquid fuel into what all combustion engine need – gas vapor.

Vapor burns much cleaner than gasoline and has a higher octane rating. A lean running engine (ie, an engine using more air than fuel) has a cooler combustion process than the typical ECM engine with a preset (never deviating) chemically correct mixture of 14.6 air : 1 fuel. Running cooler is also better for the engines. Cooler running engines means a reduction in heat damage and failure.

In the early 1930s, Charles Nelson Pogue equipped a Ford V8 coupe with a vapor carburetor he designed and built and got over 200 MPG. He drove the V8 Ford from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada to Vancouver B.C. Canada. He traveled 1879.5 miles on just 14.5 gallons of gasoline (the entire distance on just 3/4 of a 20 gallon tank of fuel) A standard carburetor used 106.5 gallons (or five, 20 gallon tanks of fuel) on the same trip.

In 1977, Tom Ogle demonstrated a 351 ci. Ford getting over 100 miles per gallon. He used a multiple fuel vaporizing system that had a 3 gallon tank. His system used heat to vaporize the liquid fuel. He received patent number 4,177,779 on Dec. 11, 1979, which described “A fuel economy system for an internal combustion engine which, when installed in a motor vehicle, obviates the need for a conventional carburetor, fuel pump and gasoline tank. The system operates by using the engine vacuum to draw fuel vapors from a vapor tank through a vapor conduit to a vapor equalizer which is positioned directly over the intake manifold of the engine.

An ultrasonic nebulizer can also convert liquid fuel into a vapor. Liquids such as water acids, salt solutions, fuels, acetones, ketones, etc., can be atomized (to convert a substance into very fine particles or droplets). Ultrasonic atomizing is carried out by focusing ultrasonic energy onto a liquid surface and by scattering liquid particles by the energy.

Vapor volume of a liquid is the number of cubic feet of vapor resulting from the complete evaporation of the liquid. The vapor volume depends on parameters of density, temperature, pressure and molecular weight which is affected by the variety of formulas for gasoline that is comprised of a wide range of hydrocarbons.

Using a common industrial formula: one liquid gallon = [(8.31) x (SG) x (387 cu ft)] / (MW) Where:

8.31 = pounds in a gallon of water
SG = specific gravity of liquid being vaporized
387 = At standard conditions, one pound-molecular weight of a material will evaporate to fill 387 cubic feet of space.
MW= molecular weight of liquid being vaporized

Using the approximate gasoline constants:

One liquid gallon of gasoline = [(8.31 pounds in a gallon of water) x (.70 approx. specific gravity of gasoline) x (387 cu ft)] / (105 molecular weight of average gasoline) = 21.4 cubic feet of vapor volume. There is 7.481 U.S. gallons in one cubic foot. Therefore one liquid gallon of gasoline = (21.4 cubic feet) x (7.481) = 160.4 gallons of saturated gasoline vapor. The vapor volume will vary based on the specific formulation of gasoline, pressure, and temperature. Ultrasonic nebulizer technology makes it possible to convert 1 gallon of gasoline into 160 gallons of highly combustible fuel.

How an ultrasonic nebulizer works to convert a liquid to gas.

Using an ultrasonic nebulizer, liquids in a vessel (such as a fuel tank) sit on top of a vibrating element. and a high intensity ultrasound is omitted. As waves move through the liquid, the liquid will begin to be pushed upward, making a small fountain. Off the surface of this fountain small particles will begin to float above the liquid and appear like smoke. This smoke like appearance is actually very fine vapor. If gasoline was used in this process the small particles that would appear like smoke would be very fine gas vapor. To move the very fine particles a small air flow/gas or vacuum is needed – like a small fuel pump or the vacuum that exists in all combustion engines.

Is the ultrasonic nebulizer technology to convert liquid gasoline into a more abundant (160 times more) vapor gas safe to use? A fog machine reveals that it is safe as a fog machine is a device which emits a dense vapour that appears similar to fog. This artificial fog is most commonly used in professional entertainment applications. Typically, fog is created by vapourizing proprietary water and glycol-based or glycerine-based fluids or through the atomization of mineral oil. Mineral oil is liquid petroleum which is a liquid by-product of the distillation of petroleum to produce gasoline and other petroleum based products from crude oil. If a fog machine can safely and effectively atomize mineral oil – a by-product of oil – then a similar device like an ultrasonic nebulizer can also safely and effectively atomize 1 gallon of gasoline to produce 160 gallons of gasoline vapor.

Who said the reason for high gas prices was because the World is running out of oil? George W. Bush did on March 5th 2008 ~ “We gotta get off oil, American has got to change its habits,”.. “It should be obvious to all, demand has outstripped supply, which makes prices go up.

President Obama asked Americans in an Oval Office address to accept that the United States is running out of places to drill for oil. President Obama said in his first live televised address from the Oval Office that: “For decades we have known the days of cheap and accessible oil were numbered. For decades we’ve talked and talked about the need to end America’s century long addiction to fossil fuels and for decades we have failed to act with the sense of urgency that this challenge requires.

The US government’s claim that the World is running out of oil was made to drive up the prices. Higher gas prices means bigger profits for US oil companies. Just look at the Fortune 500 listExxon Mobil, Chevron and ConocoPhillips are number 2, 3 and 4 respectively. We are not running out of oil we are being fleeced by the oil companies. With the technology readily available today – specifically liquid to gas vapor technology – they are also wasting oil.

“Governments and the national oil companies are obviously controlling about ninety per cent of the assets. Oil remains fundamentally a government business. While many regions of the world offer great oil opportunities, the Middle East with two thirds of the world’s oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies, even though companies are anxious for greater access there, progress continues to be slow.” ~ Dick Cheney speech at the Institute of Petroleum Autumn lunch, 1999.

If you were to incorporate this vaporizing technology into the manufacturing of a new ultra fuel efficient car those cars could travel a hundred time farther on one gallon of liquid fuel. On average the fuel efficiency of most cars on the road today is approximately 20 mpg. 20 mpg x liquid to vapor conversion factor of 160 = 3200 mpg.

You can also convert liquid fuel into a vapor simply by modifying the gas tank. You don’t need to drill or cut into the gas tank at all.  You need only to remove and replace the fuel pump / fuel sending unit with a vacuum line and a filtered air intake line that is attached to an aerator you install on the bottom of the gas tank and have it vacuum the accumulated fuel vapor from the top inside of the tank. The filtered air intake (install a check valve between the filter and gas tank to only allow one way air flow to the tank) draws in oxygen into the bottom of the gas tank through the air intake line and attached aerator. The aerator creates very tiny air bubbles that attracts liquid fuel molecules as it rises to the surface of the liquid fuel. Once the air bubbles breaks the surface of the liquid fuel it becomes a gas vapor. This gas vapor is then sucked up (vacuumed) into the vacuum fuel line and feed into the gas combustion engine. This fuel aerator functions much like an aquarium aerator which are used worldwide to oxygenate a fish tank.

2 gallon air compressor tank

You can also add a secondary tank to the system and have the engine vacuum draw the gas vapor from it. You could use a mass produced air compressor type tank as the gas vapor collecting and feed tank. They are already made to withstand very high pressures and the tank will act like a reserve tank when the engine is off. This way you will always have a good supply of gas vapor to draw upon.

    Here is an easy way to increase the fuel economy of all portable gas generators. It uses a vacuum line and a filtered air intake line to draw gas vapor from the liquid fuel. Gas vapor generation is enhanced by adding a circulation hose to the fuel petcock. The engine vacuum will draw fuel out through the fuel petcock and into the attached circulation hose and spray out into the top of the tank. The only thing you will need to install on the vacuum line that feeds the vapor to the gas combustion engine is a marine fuel primer pump – shown below. Pump the primer several time to draw enough air into the gas tank to generate enough gas vapor to start the engine. Once the engine fires engine vacuum will take over.

    All portable gas generators wastes a lot of fuel. Liquid fuel is simply sprayed into the cylinders which isn’t a very efficient use of the very expensive fuel. Add the fact that the CO2 output of these generators are much higher than automobiles. You cannot run a gas generator indoors because the levels of CO2 are extremely high and it will kill you in a very short period of time.

    The above described system to generate gas vapor from liquid fuel drastically lowers the emissions of the portable gas generator. In the process it can potentially increase the fuel efficiency by at least 10 fold. Less fuel will be wasted and the portable gas generators can run a lot longer. If you gas generator now runs 4 hours on a tank of fuel you could run it for 40 hours using the same amount of liquid fuel.

    If 1 gallon of liquid fuel equals 160 gallons of gas vapor how long do you think a portable gas generator will run if you feed it only gas vapor? Potentially 160 times longer. If your liquid to gas vapor system runs at full efficiency you could essentially run your gas generator for 640 hours (160:1 x 4) or 26.6 days. Even if you only get 10 times more running time, your fuel costs has decreased by 1000%.

    If you don’t want to drill holes into the tank of your new and expensive gas generator you can convert your gas generator to a gas vapor system simply by drilling and setting the ports into the gas cap or a replacement gas cap that you can buy from the manufacturer. This way you can experiment with the above gas vapor fuel system and still have an original gas generator, if you mess up.

    The FuelReducer mpg+, http://www.fuelreducer.com, performs the same function as the carburetor needle valve, mentioned in the above article – allowing a constant, calibrated, lower flow rate. Like the needle valve the FuelReducer mpg+ has a much smaller orifice than the vehicle’s fuel line. The needle valve only allows a lean flow rate of fuel to enter the combustion engine. As does the FuelReducer mpg+, which has been sold throughout Canada and the US since 2006.

    Why haven’t you heard about the technology that has proven that much higher gas mileage is possible? The oil industry and government have been intentionally keeping you in the dark. The oil industry stands to lose money if the people knew about this technology. Government would lose tax revenue too. So they cover up this technology. If they can’t prevent the word from getting out they launch attack campaigns against the inventor using full page newspaper ads and websites to claim, without proof, without ever testing the technology, without ever buying and using the technology, that these new fuel saving devices are all a scam and must be avoided. They claim fuel saving and fuel eliminating technology are all: “Just another gimmick to take your money.”. If that is the case then everything that has ever been sold is a scam too as everything that is sold takes money from you and gives it to the vendor. Selling a new car is also a scam because GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, and Toyota all design a new model each year, as a gimmick, to get you to buy their product wherein they take your money. After all a gimmick is defined as a unique or quirky special feature that makes something “stand out” from its contemporaries.

    How many times have you bought stocks and ended up losing it all? Stocks are a scam in that they all take your money when they fail. All stocks eventually fail so the banks are selling you, the consumer, a product they know is defective and will fail just to take your hard earned money from you. Now that is truly a scam.

    The ones who are claiming that this new technology is a fraud are the fraudsters. A fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual. The oil industry and government are committing fraud by intentionally deceiving the public and causing harm to the inventor and unnecessary financial hardship for the consumer. The deception is the false claim that these devices don’t work. A claim they make despite the fact that they have never even bought, tested or used any of these fuel saving and fuel eliminating (compressed air and electric car) technology. An intentional deceptive and unfounded claim that is based purely on conjecture and perpetrated for their own personal financial gain.

    For decades the oil companies and your government have known that much greater fuel efficiency is possible for all vehicles. Since the 1930s Ford had the technology to produce cars that got as much as 200 mpg – as demonstrated by Charles Nelson Pogue and the Ford Motors of Canada.

    In 1933 Charles Nelson Pogue made headlines when he drove a 1932 Ford V8, 200 miles on a gallon of gas during a demonstration conducted by The Ford Motor Company in Winnipeg, Manitoba using his super-carb system.”

    In early 1936 Breen Motor Company, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada tested the Pogue carburetor on a Ford V-8 Coupe and got 26.2 miles on one pint of gasoline. 1 US pint = 0.125 US gallons. That means the Ford V-8 Coupe got 209.6 mpg. In Dec. 12, 1936 Canadian Automotive Magazine stated that the standard carburetor gets about 25 mpg at only 9% efficiency. The Pogue carburetor achieved 100% efficiency.

H2O Fuel

H2O Fuels

Cold fission - the definition of fission is – splitting or breaking up into “parts”. Electrolysis of water is cold fission. It splits water (H2O) into Hydrogen gas (H2) and Oxygen (O). Hydrogen is a clean burning fuel. There are no environmental bi-products or side effects (zero carbon emissions, zero toxicity, zero tailings, zero watershed contamination, zero earthquake inducing fracking) associated with burning a hydrogen (H2) gas fuel. When we split the hydrogen (H2) from the water (H2O) we are left with Oxygen. Something we and every other living creature on Earth needs to live.

Free unlimited EM Energy

Six feet above the ground (above head height) the air is charged with more than 200 volts positive of free energy.  This free energy is available day and night, 365 days a year and for millenniums.   That 200 volts + charged air is a source of free, unlimited, unmetered and carbon-free electrical energy.   The free energy is electromagnetic (EM) energy.  It can and has already been tapped into by World renowned scientists such as Nikola Tesla and Henry Moray.   Both tapped into this infinite supply of pure, zero emission electrical energy using a simple antenna. The Egyptian Pyramids were actually built as electrical power generating plants – not tombs. They were built to receive, store and transmit the free electromagnetic energy. The pyramid itself is a very large capacitor – stores electrical energy. They were made of granite (the dielectric or insulator) and sandstone (the quartz crystal electrical conductor) with a capstone (the antenna) made of granite, basalt, or any other very hard stone which was plated with Electrum – alloy of gold and silver, with trace amounts of copper and other electricity conducting metals.

Hydrogen Fuel from Water

FuelReducer H2O Fuel Cell video demonstrates just how easy it is to fuel the World with hydrogen fuel from water instead of oil or gas. Hydrogen (H2) fuel cells are being developed to convert any gasoline fueled vehicle into a hydrogen fueled vehicle that has zero emissions.  Instead of gasoline your vehicle can be fueled with hydrogen that is split from water using a radio wave frequency.  You can use water collected from a stream, pond, lake, river, ocean, ditch, swimming pool, household faucet or rainfall to fuel your vehicle, heat your home, cook your food, and fuel your electrical power generators.     In the video above just 4.5 volts was used to split water into a hydrogen and oxygen gas. Some of the frequencies (F) in hz and Duty Cycle (D) used - F640 D60, F800, D80, F1200. 6 volts would produce considerably more hydrogen gas fuel and 12 volts (just 10% or 1/10 the electrical power needed to power every toxic fluorescent light which requires 120 volts to operate) would produce more than enough hydrogen fuel to power a gas combustion engine like a portable electrical power generator.

Free renewable biofuel

Uganda Africa construction video on how to make your own backyard biogas plant.  Daily gas production capacity of the above constructed digester is 2.6 cubic meters (time stamp 3:23).  That is equivalent to 2600 liters or 16.4  barrels of oil or 687 US liquid gallons.  For comparison an empty 20 lb barbecue propane tank will hold about 4.7 gallons of propane. Biogas can be used to heat your home, cook your food and power gas electric generators.  In the US and Canada you can use your existing prefab concrete or plastic septic tanks and produce your own biogas to fuel your home.  Bury a sealed plastic barrel or tank next to the septic tank and run a plastic tube from the top of your septic tank to the buried sealed plastic barrel or tank.  Then add a propane gas valve and fitting, like the ones from a barbecue, to the top of the sealed buried barrel or tank and you have your very own natural gas supply.

Free natural gas supply

Generate and collect free biogas fuel to fuel your home heating gas furnace, gas fireplace, gas generator, or other gas fueled appliances using your existing septic tank.  The free biogas fuel is generated 24/7 and 365 days a year.  A biogas collector sits on top of your existing septic tank.  Use any large "airtight" plastic or metal container (even a plastic fuel tank) as your biogas collector.  Join the septic tank to the collector using mass produced flexible plumbing tubing.  Run a pipe from the top of the collector to just above ground height. Attach a gas regulator value (like the ones used for barbecues) to the top of pipe to control the gas flow. Fill in with dirt and let mother nature generate a lifetime supply of free ecofriendly biofuel. 

Free Unmetered energy

Above displayed design and concept by © Paul W Kincaid - Generate unmetered AC and DC power simultaneously by coupling the shaft of a farm duty electric motor to the rotor shaft of a generator motor. Add a serpentine pulley to the joined shafts and connect with a belt to an attached alternator and recharge a 12 volt car battery. Running the electric motor power generating system off of a DC 12 volt car battery will recharge the battery as it generates free unmetered AC electrical power. If you use an AC electric motor that runs off AC current (from a wall outlet) connect a mass produced, store bought, power inverter to the alternator's battery output terminal and convert that output voltage (typically 13.8-14.2 volts) into free unmetered 120 volts. Add a switch to cut off the metered power and thereon power the AC motor using only the inverter power. Self Sustaining perpetual Electricity Generating

Need more power than what 1 generator can provide? Simply add another generator to the system using the serpentine belt. Gasoline combustion engines makes use of a serpentine belt to power your auto's accessories as the crankshaft turns. The same belt turns your alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning, water pump and so on. So you can use more than one electric power generator on your electric motor power generating system.
