Who is using a "Fuel Vapor" system here?

Anybody on the forums here using "Fuel Vaporization" systems here?
I been looking at systems from either
Dunball - Energy and Fuel Saving Devices
or
AGS (Manufacturer of the Fuel Vaporizer MPG System) Carburetor Vaporizer Fuel System
Would like some feedback from members about these systems.
Thanks.

Magnetic fuel savers have been proven to do nothing and there was a guy over on gasbuddy had a vaporizor installed on a mostly highway driven H2 hummer and saw no improvement.
So we know newer engines like the GM LS serries mix there air and fuel well enough to see no improvement form a "fuel vaporizer".

We're all running vaporized fuel. Liquid fuel does not burn.

When the injectors mist out fuel into small droplets, the heat from the engine vaporizes them so they can be ignited.

I'd bet my V-6 Mustang could get over 30 MPG with one of those (in the warmer months with warm weather fuel blends)...

Great Link High Dude. I'll probably use it as a "Just Read This" whenever anyone puts up some cockamamie contraption as a fuel saving gizmo.
