Thomas77GR Posted September 25, 2011 Share Posted September 25, 2011 I've been doing some reading on the merits of such systems (Vs standard carburation systems) and I have got myself excited as there are examples of diy mechanics out there who have experimented with such systems and report great results.. There are various patents but I was curious if anyone here has tried such a modification (to me it sounds like the best thing one can do to an old car - the gain in efficiency and fuel economy are making the above worth pursuing!) While I am trying to get my head around this.. I imagine that a fuel vapourisation system would involve the following: connecting the fuel pipe from an electric fuel pump outlet ('in line fuel pump') to a small stainless steel tank fitted in the engine bay (fixed on a bracket somewhere) which contains an ultrasonic transducer device modified for use with petrol ..This ultrasonic transducer device would need to be wired to something (how? I'm not sure) - There should also be a type of float within this small tank to regulate the inflow of petrol from the pump..(any suggestions?) The tank should also have a small vent out and away from the hot engine.. The vapourised fuel from the small tank would go through a copper tube wrapped with trace heating element (from a switched live) - other suggestions is that the heating to this tube would be from recirculation of exhaust gases or hot coolant) and into the intake manifold via a venturi type nozzle (or can it go into the carburettor??) I don't know - anyone who's looked into the above and understand this better?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
