Thanks for showing the rig and explaining.
Now I would like to know how things are going over a year later after posting your last post.
Any changes? Improvements in the rig?
Have been fooling around with a few rigs myself seeing what works and what doesn't.
Like to hear any updates you may have.
I gave up on the liquid conversion to total vapor. But I have been enjoying 26-28 mpg combo driving and 38 mpg trip mileage. But here is my report on the smog situation. As you know in CA you have to take your car to stock before they will smog you. I did a "failure" test to get the numbers with the vaporizer hooked up. Then I had to strip it down to stock to get the "pass" test numbers. With the vaporizer hooked up I improved my numbers in the HC and Co category, but the NO numbers were slightly higher, but still under max.
The biggest improvement with the vaporizer was in the 25mph test with the greatest decrease in pollution.
With the MPG unit it is a constant drip rate. It appears at slower speeds it is not as efficient as at higher speeds. I have already reduced the drips suggestion from 10 drops/liter/minute (22 for my car) to half that. Since most of my driving is combo rather than good freeway driving (LA traffic), I will cut the 10 to 5 and see what happens.
Smog results: Stock- HC- 56/32/ CO- .14/.07, NO- 358/176
Vaporizer-HC- 39/10, CO- .10/.04, NO- 401/188
All numbers are w/i max range. First number represents 15mph and second represents 25mph. This is for a 97 Accord 2.2L, V TECH with 194,000 miles.
