Plain nitrogen, they call it a nitrogen on demand system .

Neither do I.
N2 is pretty much inert

But by invoking a "catalyst", like a deus-ex-machina, you can be very enigmatic about it all.

Legumes. You can get a package of pea seeds for a couple of bucks, and in only 60-90 days (depending on variety & growing season) you too can convert nitrogen into something useful :-)

Don't forget you can always have a free trial of this, and similar devices, by simply printing out the technical explanation on their website, and wrapping it round your car's air intake, fuel line, exhaust pipe or wherever the device itself is supposed to be fitted.

The NITROGEN-ON-DEMAND GENERATOR is a quick and and easy installation. This innovative technology converts ordinary nitrogen (non-combustible) in the atmosphere into a nitro gas (combustible).

Nitrogen is pulled from the air into the Catalyst Reaction Chamber (generator) connected to the PCV valve. When the air enters the generator it is purified into a combustible nitro gas. The nitro gas is pulled into the air intake manifold through the PCV valve. It then fully combusts the unburned hydrocarbons (gas) in the air intake manifold allowing the engine to operate at a leaner air to fuel mixture producing more power and increased gas mileage.


Ok so what exacly is nitro gas supposed to be?

Nitro gas is produced when one eats a bad burrito! Man, I can go all day with this!

Hey, I got a great idea. For $750.00, we'll install a methane capture unit in the seats with scent control, put a storage tank somewhere in the vehicle and when the level is up, push a button and use it as a booster!

C'mon! It'd be great!

We'll call it the Flatulator 1000!
