75 year old film, explaining basics of a carbed gasoline engine.. with a cartoon.

75 years later, I am still hypermiling with their concept, on a 23 year old carbed engine, never rebuilt yet.

to sum it up:
cold fuel, last minute expansion venturi (claims of faster than the speed of sound) where it gains air, expands, runs through warm intake... and burns.

today, injection kills venturi, there is no atomization, gadgets pretend to be on top of it all...no natural transformation into super stoichial.

any arguments?
love to chat about this. it is not even funny anymore.
