1000 Miles Per Gallon sHell Research Late 70’s
OGLE FUEL SYSTEMS “Vapor Fuel System” 1977- 100 miles per gallon (5cents)!! Tom Ogle r.i.p.
High mileage car. 376 mpg!
This is the 1959 Opel P1 experimental car. It was entered in the 1973 Shell Oil Mileage Marathon. It won by attaining 376 miles per gallon
“I was messing around with a lawn-mower when I accidentally knocked a hole in its fuel tank. I put a vacuum line running from the tank straight into the carburetor inlet. I just let it run and it kept running and running but the fuel level stayed the same. I got excited. The lawn-mower was running without a carburetor and getting tremendous efficiency.”
-Tom Ogle (Inventor of the Tom Ogle Vapor Fuel System)

Fuel Vaporizer: Liquid gasoline does NOT burn, Vapors do.
The vaporized gas burns more completely and efficiently than the larger particled liquid gas, and this translates to better mileage and more horsepower from your vehicle’s current fuel delivery set up.
Air pollution from internal combustion engines is caused by unburned hydrocarbons,i.e.pollution found in the exhaust. Only gasoline vapor will explode, droplets end as pollution.
Currently, more than 87% energy is dissipated or wasted in the form of heat, drive train loss, and idling loss. Among these energy loss, 62% loss is mainly heat loss.
Fuel injectors don’t atomize or vaporize fuel. What they do is make the stream of fuel so small that some of it turns into vapors. That is the portion that is actually burned in the cylinder. Liquid fuel does not burn at all, so only about 10 to 15 percent of the fuel delivered by the injector is actually burned in the cylinder. The rest of the unburned fuel is wasted. The catalytic converter actually vaporizes the waste fuel which is why there is no liquid fuel coming out of the exhaust. it takes about 5 minutes for the catalytic converter to heat up enough to vaporize the fuel.
You can flood a car’s engine by letting in too much liquid fuel. That all being said, think about it this way in simpler terms. Your engine is only using 10% of the fuel delivered to it. It is also only burning the fuel at 10% efficiency because of the 90% liquid fuel that has to be displaced. If there was only fuel vapor, mixed with air going into the cylinder, you would get an almost 100% burn. The engine would definitely run more efficiently because instead of having to compress mostly liquid, which is very hard to do, the cylinder would only be compressing the vapor, which is much easier. The result would be a cleaner explosion in the cylinder.
One gallon of liquid gasoline vaporizes to 160 gallons. The fuel efficiency of the vehicle would increase drastically. I think if the fuel vapors are put into a tank similar to a hydrogen fuel cell and fed directly into the system, you could have a vehicle that gets over 100 miles to the gallon. Most modern vehicles get about 20 miles to the gallon only burning fuel at a 10% efficiency. Raise the efficiency of the fuel burned by any percentage and the mileage would increase drastically.
How much does 1 gallon of 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.

Vapor Carburetor Proof of Concept – Prototype on a Briggs and St
Here’s my Briggs and Stratton WI running on gas vapor via my vapor carburetor of my own design. There are a few kinks I still need to work out, plus I need to install the air intake heater.
Running On Fumes – PT1 (Cold Vapor) Running a small engine on gasoline fumes (Cold Vapor). And a recoil repair.
Homemade Vapor Carburetor
This is a video about homemade vapor carburetor (sorry for a few mistakes in text)
I use some plumbing pipes and three 1/2 inch valves. For petrol tank I use plastic container.
Well I know that I use wrong engine for that kind of vapor fuel sistem, but I just want to know if this thing is working.
