GAS PRICES

The following was sent by an Economist within the Fuel Industry and another Economics professor at CAL Reiterated the same last week. I think its worth trying.

We heard today from a reliable source who is very savvy about the economy namely, Clark Howard, and he says that the gas prices are going to start going up again and will be high this summer - $2.00 and up. We need to do whatever we can and do it NOW!!! This makes more sense than the "don't by gas on a certain day" routine, that was going around last year. (Gasoline Prices)
Whoever started this has a good point. By now, you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.58 is cheap, me too, as it is now $1.68 and up for regular unleaded. Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is cheap at less than $1.50, we need to try an aggressive response. With the price of gasoline going up more each day we consumers need to take ACTION! The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we don't buy it. But, as the gas companies know full well we are counting on, thats not really practical, option, since we all have come to rely on our cars. But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together. Here's an idea: For the rest of this year, don't purchase gasoline from the biggest companies (which now are one), namely EXXON, MOBIL, AMOCO, etc...(the ones with the highest prices) You see, if they are not selling, they should be incline to reduce thier prices. And, because of thier size, and hence market share, if they reduce thier prices the other companies will too. (They would HAVE no choice!) Isn't that a "juicy" prospect? But to have an impact we need to reach literally millions of users, but it's do-able! I am sending this note to 42 people. If each of you send it to at least 10 more ...and those 10 send it to at least 10 more and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth iteration, we will have reached over one million consumers. Acting together we can make a difference. If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on, or one you compose, to at least 10 more email addresse's. PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO BELOW $1.28 - $1.29. And KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK!
If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!

Re: GAS PRICES

something that you may want to look into for your bronco that will not only give you better preformance and efficency but may also make yah have a better day is water injection. i have done some research onlin on water injection systems and the next chance i get i am going to install one on my '74. they don't seem to be very complicated and seem to be worth it. basically all you do is run some 1/4" copper tubing around your exhaust that is connected to a tub of water and then splice it into your carb. add some simple mechanism to control the amount of water/gas/air mix and you are good to go.

Re: GAS PRICES

I have heard of this process.
Don't know the theory around it, but I do know that it has been done for about 20 years. It is simply, injecting small amounts of water vapor into the airstream along with the fuel. It boosts both horsepower and efficiency. I don't know about the copper line to the carb thing though. I heard it has to be injected (water does not vaporize as easily as gasoline). Ever notice that a very humid rainy day that the car runs better. I am from a very dry climate, and a little moisture in the air makes a noticeable difference. Same thing.

If anyone has an article on this process, please post it.
