The Department of Transportation(s) (DOT) city, county, state and federal, are dependent on fuel taxes for a large percentage of their operating revenue. The DOT packs a lot of clout with auto manufacturers. If cars get a ten to fifty percent higher MPG, the revenues would decrease by that same percentage, unless the tax on a gallon of fuel increases. Fuel taxes already account for a large part of the price of fuel. Would the public stand for even higher fuel taxes? Time will tell if that will be the case because, with the losses that American auto manufacturers are suffering due to their entrenched and out of date mindsets, they will have to begin manufacturing smaller cars that get better gas mileage.

If you see a problem you might ask him if he has got an estimate on fixing it. Check for broken or badly scratched glass. Check for missing trim or dents.

It varies from car-to-car, and the conditions as well as tuning. Most BPU(TM)-only Supra Twin Turbos, dyno between 370 and 410 horsepower at the rear wheels. This is usually achieved with moderate temperatures, a reset ECU (to erase anything bad the ECU may have learned), and often a little bit of high-octane un-leaded race fuel. On the street, power will be reduced, especially in poor weather, but at least 90 percent of the power should be retained.

Does the idle go up and down? If the idle of the engine goes up and down, that can indicate a vacuum line leaking or an engine sensor that needs replacing. Usually not too expensive.

Your muffler is one of those parts you’re unlikely to think about until it fails. When it does, you’ll hear it. The problem is, a failing muffler can also be dangerous. If corrosion causes a breach or leak, fumes can escape. This exposes you and your passengers to harmful carbon monoxide gases.

So the term cat-back refers to all parts of the exhaust system between the outlet of the catalytic converter recycling or cat and the outside air. This usually means a series of pipes, one or more mufflers, and perhaps exhaust tips.

If the timing of the bursts of the group of cars from each road could be coordinated, with the signals in the area cars would not need to slow down and each burst of group of cars would be able to pass without slowing down or risking a mishap.

In the BIG picture, your Free Energy is coming from the tap water, in an open system, as the latent energy in the water is enough to power the engine, and hence drive the alternator and whatever belt-driven accessories; AND the alternator is efficient enough to run the various electrical loads (10-20 amps), including the additional low current to run this vapor reaction. No extra batteries are required.
