Thumbs up from 27.87 MPG to 71.43 MPG!!!!

Right then, I've got a 1969 Landrover Series 2a 2.25L Diesel. I put magnets on the fuel line and increased the mileage on a set 17 mile route at a steady 40mph to 27.87mpg. I then constructed the single cell system and fitted it. My first run was with the bubbler closed and on the set run increased my mileage to 28.84mpg. A positive start, but I felt that the engine was being starved of HHO. I then reduced the length of the two feed pipes going to the closest point on the air intake manifold to 4 feet each from five feet and opened up the bubbler to allow a moderate amount of air through. I then ran the same run (each run took 35 minutes) and compared the results. My 39 year old Landrover did 71.43mpg!!!!

In truth, I was hoping to achieve a modest 40mpg but this is unbelievable!!

Can't we rig something up that gives these guys a shock through the keyboard when they try to post that stuff?

Sometimes I wonder if this type of 'advertising' or 'marketing' actually ever works.

It had to somewhere right? Maybe?
