So the mpg is way better until 55 gallons catch fire...I bet his lmpg really dropped.

A bit extreme for me.

KIRO 7 South Sound reporter Richard Thompson checked the Internet and quickly found a number of do-it-yourself videos showing people how to modify engines using plastic bottles and other household

I've never seen threads showing how to use plastic bottles to increase MPG on Ecomodder. Any other website out there claiming these methods work is probably not a good source of information.

You can't fix stupid.

I think HHO is a higher risk for explosion than most mods... not only can the mod itself explode, but the stupidity of people attempting it can make REAL Ecomodders' heads explode.

I LOLed.

Someone should have introduced the man to the unicorn corral before he started lugging 300 extra pounds of fuel around.

Looks like a vapor fuel tank experiment reached its only logical conclusion.

I'm assuming the idea was better atomization of the fuel/air and hence better combustion efficiency?

...maybe it could work... I have a spare 55 gallon drum laying around too...

As i read on fuel vaporizer things on internet, it claims that it helps to get over 400mpg. Sounds like unicorn corral topic
Or is there actually any savings, that was not pointed out?

EDIT: Hmm, it already vaporizes while it gets out of injector, but then the system gives the needed air.. Yea, that was a hoax
