All that stuff is great; now you just need to connect the dots.

Right!

I have tried a few things on this Ford, and hit a wall.

Lately I mixed up a power additive that SEEMED to notable made the car pepper =, less throttle on take off and less throttle on the Hightway.

BUT still same old MPG.

So as nothing seems to work on this car I started to wonder if I was fighting a too smart for me PCM.

Thus my question and this thread.

I was hoping as one of the older MPG research sites you guys might have the answer.

Please provide the link and source of this bit of technical information. I want to read all of it and know who the author is and what their background is.

I don't have the time to hunt up what a 1/2 dozen tech books say.

It is so known that it does not jump out with a search.

This talks about it somewhat:

But you have time to post all of your meaningless drivel about vapor engines.

This will be my first, last, and only post in this thread.

Right you want to read the article to see what hidden agenda you can find and criticism you can make, and I am to spend lots of time to serve up this for you to find fault with it.

Sorry I have better things to do.
