installed water vapor injection. how to ajust timing for peak mpg?
hi folks,
I've just installed a water vapor injection system in my car.
2.5 gallon water tank with 2 pond foggers inside it. (car currently taking about 1 gallon per hour when driving on highway)

what should I do with the timing for peak mpg? please fill me in. should I advance it? or retard it?

I dont believe changing timing is needed with WVI. Normally anti knock sensors do a adequate job keeping timing where it should be. (advanced as possible without pinging) If it a older car id advance the timing and set it old school style.

1GPH may be high for some vehicles. check your spark plugs

After installing a water vapor injection system in his car the question is how to adjust the timing for peak mpg! I am sure he’ll get a suitable advice which will solve his issue and from what is understood, he may not have to do anything about it at all!! It’s great that we have forums like these where we can come and clear our doubts before doing anything silly and regretting it later!!

I don't think you are going to get any mileage increase, maybe 1 mpg. It was used during WW2 on piston planes on takeoff for additional power. Once they were airborne, they shut it off. I think the theory goes that water "misted" into the system turned to steam, giving additional power.
