Method for reducing CO2 emissions & taxes

Fuel atomizer design by Paul W Kincaid

There are may ways to reduce CO2 emissions, and one of the most readily achievable methods is to increase the fuel efficiency of the global automobile fleet. Much of the technology required to reach the desired efficiency already exists and the required new technology should not take long to develop and mass produce if investors or government funding is provided.

The much guarded secret to higher fuel mileage and lower CO2 emissions & taxes is to increase liquid gasoline atomization resulting in a cleaner burn and a combustion that uses less fuel.

It is a well known fact that gas combustion engines either mixes gasoline fuel with air to form a vapor or atomizes gasoline into a vapor. All cars actually run on fuel vapor, a.k.a. “fumes” however they need a full tank of liquid gas to make enough of those fumes. Carburetors mixes fuel with air to form a fuel vapor. Carburetors were used for decades in automobiles to perform this function. Carburetors are still used today as a component of gasoline generators. More recently, fuel injectors are used in all newer model automobiles to atomize gasoline into a fuel vapor.

“All internal combustion engines actually run on vapor, not liquid. The liquid fuels used by gasoline engines are vaporized before they enter the combustion chamber above the pistons.” FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) in FEMA wood gas generator report “Construction of a Simplified Wood Gas Generator for Fueling Internal Combustion Engines in a Petroleum Emergency”, published March 1989

To increase fuel mileage one would need to increase liquid gasoline vaporization or atomization. One method is to increase the gasoline temperature. Gasoline vaporizes at 140 degrees so one would need to come up with a way to generate enough heat to heat gasoline fuel to 140 degrees resulting in a better burn and improved gas mileage. However, heating gasoline could pose a significant danger, cause a fire.

A safer method that can be used to increase fuel mileage is to atomize the gasoline fuel as it flows through the fuel line. Atomizing reduces liquid gasoline into a very fine spray. Perfume bottles and paint spray cans are massed produced to emit the liquids in the perfume bottle or paint spray can as a fine spray. They do this without heating the bottle or spray can. Both uses the atomization method called hydraulic atomization to break down a liquid into more or less fine droplets.

Hydraulic atomization causes a liquid media passing through a nozzle to increase in speed as the cross section diameter becomes smaller. Potential energy becomes kinetic energy (velocity). After the medium passes through the nozzles very small orifice, it develops an aerodynamic wave pattern, which later leads to droplets in different sizes.

Another method that can be used to increase fuel mileage is to regulate the flow or pressure of the liquid gasoline fuel. Mass produced flow control valves already do this – regulates the flow or pressure of a fluid. So do kitchen and bath faucets. Reducing the flow of any liquid reduces the consumption or usage of that liquid. Therefore, reducing the flow of fuel will reduce fuel consumption and increase mileage, distance traveled.

Combination of flow control valve & hydraulic atomization methods were used by PRESS Core editor, Paul W Kincaid in designing and developing the FuelReducer mpg+. Sold throughout Canada and the US from 2006 to 2010. The FuelReducer mpg+ reduced the flow of gasoline fuel & caused the gasoline passing through it to increase in speed as the cross section diameter becomes smaller. Combining flow control valve & hydraulic atomization methods increased vehicles’ fuel efficiency and mileage by 10-25%.

The newest method to increase fuel mileage and lower CO2 emissions, designed by PRESS Core editor Paul W Kincaid, is the in-line fuel atomizer. The in-line fuel atomizer is designed to increase fuel mileage by atomizing the liquid gasoline passing through it. As the fuel pressure increases flow resistance increases which causes the atomization effect to increase.
