This is a really old thread - how did this get dredged up?

It would appear that FordMan is responsible for res'ing this thread, unless there is a deleted post in between the last old one (circa May 2007) and his.

This has to be the all-time champion of evergreen conspiracy theories. I first heard this crock in the early 60s. Of course, never the first bit of corroboration.

I didn't look at the date on the thread, someone must have made a comment and then deleted it. It came up as a thread that had a new comment.

Oh heck! It's certainly pervasive. I was in a training session at work on the subject of environmental issues, you could have predicted (and of course it happened) someone piped up stating that some friend's relative, while working for a big automotive concern, happened to invent a carburettor that got 100mpg or doubled fuel mileage or some such... and all rights to the device were snapped up by said big company never to be seen again.

So do it, already!
My ex-Passat (still in my name, but now it's 'hers') averaged 48 mpg in "normal" driving, but 80+ when really trying for good mpg and keeping speeds down to the 35~40 mph range. I strongly think your 45 mpg could be brought up to mid 70's by dropping your speed to mid-30 mph and concientiously driving for fuel frugality. Then you could claim to have a derivitive version of the non-existent big-oil-supressed, miracle mileage air /fuel mixer. Maybe not 100 mpg, but halfway there for absolutely free, no licensing, no infringement, no labor.
The down side is needing 14 hours for a 500 mile trip, now THAT gets tiring quickly.

You can get 100mpg with "Steam cracking". Do it in real time. 1 gallan of gas don't just = 48 Horse power per hour at 100% engine eff.!

Ok, I googled "steam cracking" and read the wikipedia article, and I get that steam cracking is the process of breaking down large hydrocarbons into smaller hydrocarbons. What does that have to do with automobile engines and their efficiency?
