Tom Ogle was from El Paso, Texas area. He invented an evaporative system -- Patented in 1979 -- where the fuel tank was part of the fuel delivery system. He was filmed driving from El Paso to Demming, New Mexico and most of the way back in a 1970 Ford (I want to say) Galaxie 500, achieving 104 MPG. It made national headlines at the time, and was certified legit by some guys with credentials. I was fortunate enough to talk to the engineer that was charged with getting it production worthy, hired by the guy that bought Ogle's patent. Quite a story!
