Vacuum driven gas vapor system

So I have a neighbor who started seeing this guy who is claiming 60 mpg on a chevy Blazer by hooking a hose to a gas tank in the trunk drawing vapor into the intake of the engine engine which then leans out the injectors conserving fuel. Is this guy blowing smoke up my ass or what. He wants to make one for my Saturn...

He is blowing hard , much harder and you would be emitting hot air yourself ..


I would not let him under the hood of the car to check on anything either as he is obviously out of the loop when it comes to mechanics and the simple fact fumes are much to lean to run a car on and the fuel is full of fumes anyways..

Hey , you know what: "Screw" > these people on this site, (with all Due Respect), these people cannot see: "OUT OF THE BOX"! Believe me, I "USE" > Gadgets, and have been getting "clobbered" by these folks, telling me I'm so full of "##it, but of course in other words,, I'm sick of it, I use 2 MAIN gadgets , I've used one since '97, it "WORKS", the other I found back in '05, little success in the 1st one, but the 2nd one WOW! Yes, I 've even bought 2 more, and one was just put onto my '91 Chevy Blazer, (full-size,4wd), and the other is going onto my other Geo Metro,, I'll expect to "BREAK" > 100 Mpg Hwy, on that... they're all "Nay-sayers" here, seems like? They don't want to admit that some things WORK! I'll just bet $, they're too dammed cheap, or "POOR" > to buy, and test these "gadgets", or just too "Ckin**it" to try them! Sincerely, M.Gaud

Most garbage , I mean gagets dont work.

If these stupid gaugets that any moron with an iq of 80 could build then why has the auto industry invested something like 2 billion dollars in hybrid R&D in the last 15 to 20 year and still gets less gas millage than these gagets are giving?
