Water injection???

Seems like this might be worth following up on?

Seems to have been used with carbed cars though.

I think we've had a few discussions about this in the past. I really can't recall the exact conclusions we came to though. Let me look through the archives.

So maybe the steam is replacing the fuel?

That's cool. I saw a loss of power injecting liquid water at ~2%.

* 2% meaning that I used this % of the amount of gas usually used over so many miles. So if I typically use 1 gallon of gas in 30 miles...I used 2.56 oz of water over 30 miles.

Are you just doing vacuum injection...got a tube wrapped around the exhaust?

Are you keeping track of the amount used?

Works out to a gain of around 14% in mileage?

3.91 G = 500 oz

So that's around a 1.5% water use rate.
