TIDBIT: AND WHILE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT OIL AND ALTERNATIVE ...

Mr. V.T. sent this, and it raises an intriguing question: "alternative energy" to oil doesn't always have to be "exotic" or "high tech":

    The efficiency of the Rockefeller no compet1tion monopolies/oligopolies & platform-zillas, swallowing up anything & everything contrary to the status quo; all towards an exponential digitized inequality – spelling social unrest and civil wars galore.

    “Not the fabled 100 MPG carburetor. That probably never existed.”
    Winnipeg’s largest automobile dealers tested the Pogue carburetor and got results of up to 216.8 mpg! In 1945, according to an unnamed source, carburetors marked “POGUE CARBURETOR, DO NOT OPEN” were used on American Army tanks throughout WWII but were removed from circulation after the war ended. If you want to see one:

    However, you can get up to 900+ mpg using Coleman camping fuel and this guys Air Vapor Flow System.
    Remember, it’s all about the money…

        Now ask yourself just why they wont allow these methods to be used in Amerika, land of the slaves (actually bond servants would be a better description).

      Interesting diagram.

      Seems like something that could be easily built today, with a computer used to control the heat vaporizing the petrol and a computer controlling the pumps and valves. Pretty much espresso maker could control the system. Looks like it could be adapted to a modern fuel injection system too.

    Honda sold a natural gas version of the Civic (fleet only) until 2015.

    There are various interweb articles explaining why Honda stopped.

    But pretending that no party sold natural gas vehicles is silly.

    Also there are plenty of industrial vehicles that run on propane or natural gas, forklifts, some huge, and ice rink resurfacing machines all frequently use compressed natural gas or propane. These are shipped from the factory as natural gas vehicles.

    You might be interested to know that about 20% of all vehicles in Italy – cars, vans and city buses – run on methane gas. It’s fairly cheap to have a conversion done and the methane gas is fairly easy to find. And never fear, the state collects a heft tax on it.

        Unfortunately, methane-powered vehicles give off the smell of flatulence. This car doesn’t stink, runs quiet, and has a trunk big enough to hold a harvest moon:
