I could feel the familiar feeling of the extra torque of the water going in.

It was just disappointing when I didn't get a big improvement in fuel economy from the water-injection and then sometime later the car got crashed. I discovered that pre-heating the water made a big difference. Water viscosity is very important. I got the car from around 400km/tank to 650km/tank (40l) so I was somewhat happy but nothing that would really impress anyone on this forum much.

If there was an open source fuel-economy ECU project that anyone knew of I'd be interested in hearing about it. I think I'm getting ready for a fuel-injector remap computer because I suspect that there are a few deficiencies with the logic in most ECU's especially in relationship to thermal management.

I'm setting about to rear-mount turbo-charge this car. We'll see what happens then.
2003 Renault Scenic - 30% more power with no loss in fuel economy.
1991 Toyota GT4 - more economical before ST215W engine-swap.
previous: Water-Injected Mitsubishi ~33% improved.
future - probably a Prius
