In order for a patent to be issued an inventor has to prove that their invention actually does what is claimed. It takes years to get a patent because first off the patent pending has to be checked against the existing Patent records to make sure the invention hasn’t already been patented. Then proof is required that the invention does what it is claimed otherwise the invention is just a fraud. That being said, many have tried to discredit inventions like the ones that are being disclosed in this article. They don’t want it being made public so they make false claims that the inventions don’t work despite the burden of proof being submitted and accepted by a government agency which handles, registers and keeps records of all new and old technology. Keep this in mind when you read the rest of this article. If the claim of 200 or even 100 mpg isn’t true then why is there a registered patent number on file?
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 Companies in Winnipeg, Manitoba using his super-carb system. United States Patent # 750354 http://www.freepaten … 354&stemming=on In fact, many people attested to these mileage claims as The Pogue Carb went into production and was sold openly. However, one of the crucial factors of these systems is the use of “white” gasoline, which contained no additives. It was at this time oil companies started adding lead to the fuel. Lead is an anti-catalyst that rendered Pogue’s carburetor as inefficient as a regular carb. His invention caused such shock waves through the stock market, that the US and Canadian governments both stepped in and applied pressure to stifle him. He suffered an enormous amount of loss as a result of trying to make the world a better place.
Shrouded in mystery and controversy, It appears Mr. Pogue’s vaporizer brought him in contact with a lot of people who didn’t want what he was offering to get out. He received many accolades, and was accused by others as being a fraud. Many people believe that lead was added to gasoline to prevent anyone else from building such a device, since lead leaves heavy deposits and clogs these types of units, rendering them ineffective due to the inability to transfer heat to the fuel.
Tom Ogle of El Paso Texas , a 24 year old mechanic drove 200 miles in a 1970 351 ci. Ford on 2 gallons of gas. Other mechanics and engineers checked for hidden tanks, none were found. Reporters and a camera crew went with him 100 miles out and back; 200 miles 2 gallons. He claimed from the beginning that he did not know exactly how the system worked, just that it did and he proved it time and again. He had hoped other engineers would help to explain what he was doing. He had a hard time getting backers that had integrity. Everybody wanted controlling interest and he knew it was going on the back shelf. Tom resisted and tried to get it on the market. Later he was shot and survived, only four months later he did die of an overdose of darvon and alcohol with no suicide note. Nobody explained what became of his idea. A patent was issued Dec. 11, 1979 # 4,177,779 - Four months after his death.
United States Patent 4177779 http://www.freepaten … ine.com/4177779.html
Patent Abstract - 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. The vapor tank is constructed of heavy duty steel or the like to withstand the large vacuum pressure and includes an air inlet valve coupled for control to the accelerator pedal. The vapor equalizer ensures distribution of the correct mixture of air and vapor to the cylinders of the engine for combustion, and also includes its own air inlet valve coupled for control to the accelerator pedal. The system utilizes vapor-retarding filters in the vapor conduit, vapor tank and vapor equalizer to deliver the correct vapor/air mixture for proper operation. The vapor tank and fuel contained therein are heated by running the engine coolant through a conduit within the tank. Due to the extremely lean fuel mixtures used by the present invention, gas mileage in excess of one hundred miles per gallon may be achieved.
