Super Mileage From Fuel Vaporization

* L. Mills Beam developed a simple heat exchange carburetor back in 1920. In principle it was nothing more than a method of using the hot exhaust gases of an engine to vaporize the the liquid gas being burned. UsingĀ  simple logic Beam reasoned that raw gas going through a normal carburetor simply could not be atomized with high efficiency. As a result there was a waste of fuel when microscopic droplets burned instead of exploded. This of course, created unnecessary heat and inefficiency.

* Since he was easily able to double and triple the gas mileage of the cars he tested, it was not long before Beam was offered a settlement and percentage fee for the rights to his device. Accepting the offer, he never again saw any attempt to market his device or the parties who gained control of his device.

* In his “Suppressed Inventions”, Mile Brown spoke with Mr. Beam and found that the shadowy trail seemed to lead to a major oil company; but, of course, little could be proved.
