Re: I double my MPG with valves

Old school mpg accuracy, I'm operating my 1968 V8 Dodge on a 2 gallon semi-transparent gas tank, marked in 1/10th gallon increments, so I can be sure of mpg's on short trips. From my house to the city limits of Morganton NC is exactly 12 miles, I use 4/10th of a gallon of gas making this trip at 55 mph regularly with my V.A.L.B.S fuel processor turned on this same trip takes 1 gallon with it turned off. V.A.L.B.S, Very Advanced Lean Burn System, is a fuel processor that I designed and built. It gives me control of my fuel mixture from a control panel under the dash and has more than doubled my mpg at 55 mph, getting 30 mpg and at 45mph I get more than 40 mpg. I'm sorry if this offends anyone as I have been designing and building fuel systems for more than 38 years. Thank You for your time, Cal Chapel

Please PM me for your information. I will gladly be the guinea pig for your device (free of charge of course).

Re: I double my MPG with valves

I would not purposefully run a 1968 V8 lean. Its not designed for it. Detonation can ruin an engine real fast.

Re: I double my MPG with valves

I think you'd be safe up to about 18:1 air/fuel ratio under most circumstances. I think that most carbs would allow a ratio between 12.5:1 and 18:1, give or take. When F/I became the boss, the air/fuel ratio was stuck at 14.7:1 (stoichiometric), since that gave the cleanest burn for emissions.

The VX runs up to a 24:1, but it required special work to be done to the valves and head in order to get that mixture to burn completely. A second set of intake valves opening just a crack so that the fuel collects near the plug, for example.

Wow, so dashboard-controlled carb mix has just been invented by you hah? Hallelujiah! Did you know there's a big red knob on the dash of every Cessna 150 that controls the carb mixture? How about the dash mixture control system Edelbrock used to sell?

It looks a little like something one might find at http://www.sextoys.com. I think. I mean, I would never visit a site like that. Really.

Thank you for your cooperation-Here's an update on V.A.L.B.S It would appear that big oil has some how ($$$) influenced the US patent office so that Thermal Fuel Induction Systems and street legal Hydrogen Isolators like V.A.L.B.S can only be marketed as performance devices, even though V.A.L.B.S more than doubles mpg while only increasing horse power to 20-25%. So if it takes more than 1 year to get a patent, I'll just publish a how to manual with diagrams and let my fellow gear heads decide what to call it.
Thank you very much for not being offended, I'll see that you get the first copy of my manual. Cal Chapel
