    110 mpg muscle car

    Saw this posted on CNN.com http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/...00mpg.car.wnwo

    Guy claims he is getting 110 mpg out of an 87 mustang. Say car has 400hp and 500ft/p of torque and 0-60 in 3 seconds running E-85.

    Here is a news station article.http://www.local6.com/automotive/16768626/detail.html

    I fixed the post. Maybe we can get a mod to fix the title. I also added an article url. I was trying to remember all the facts while posting. The G and the H are beside each other.

    I doubt it will do 0-60 in 3. That requires a lot of hookup lol.

    However that would be sweet if it really does have that much power and only uses that much gas.

    Maybe it can get 110mpg and 400hp. Just not at the same time, doesn't say it averages 110mpg. Says it has all sorts of electronic controls added. Maybe he kills 7 cylinders, holds those valves open or closed so there in no compression going on and run it at 55mph with one cylinder firing. GM failed horribly with it with the 4-6-8 years ago. They are doing it again now, as does Chrysler and Honda with one of the hybrids. They disable the opening of the valves. My Honda shuts off fuel to the cylinders to help with the regen braking but still has the compression braking going on. Back to the stang, I highly doubt it does get 110mpg though, maybe some absurdly high number but not that high.

    Read any articles about people "hypermiling"? Where someone fanatically drives to save fuel. Never used cruise control, shuts engine off at red lights, always drives slow, as if he doesn't have brakes. Do a search on it. People are gertting 75 MPG our of accords and camrys.

    I think we already have the gas problem fixed.
    You can use you existing SUV or muscle car and run it with Brown's Gas (also called Oxyhydrogen, HHO and the trademark Aquygen™ Gas).

    It appears Denny Klein here in Clearwater, Florida has the patent rolling, the HHOS is in patent pending stage with 39 claims pending. I've been watching this for a while and I think it's for real. The video below will show Brown's Gas working---it's only warm to the touch but burns a hole in metal. See the links below video also:
