The carburetor as we know it is about the same as it was n years ago

and the modern carburetor is even less efflcient than those of 30 years
ago when gasoline was cheap. The fuel injection systens of today are not
nuch better than a standard carburetor when it come6 to efficiency. To sum
it all rpr of every 20 gallons of gasoline you put in your tank - only J
gallons or so url11 be used by your engine. fhe balance will build up in
thg engine as carbon and w:i1l be coll-ected ae unburned hydrocarbons by the
catalytic converter or come out your tail pipe as pollutlon...

I once drove a 1956 pontiac with V-B and autonatj-c transmission that
got about 13 mpg on the highway. f was a hot rodder ln those days and I
wanted as rrruch pourer as I could possibly - get so f set out to get the car
to go a little laster. f had just come 6ut of the Air ForcJwhere f was
an engine mechani-c so J used one trick that airplanes use to get more pow-

in water injection to help keep it cooI. The leaning process di-d gi-ve ne
more powerr but due tc the 1iquid fuel r,v:lthln the conbustlon chamber the
heat build up wa6 intolerable until the water: injection was i-nstalled. At
the same time f was increasing ponrer urtth thj-s methoO - I found out that
f was also increaslng efflciency and ended up getting better than 2l mpg

The Tucker carburetor shown here j-s basicall-y a system of fuel and air
lilters working together to create a vaporous nixture sufficient to burn
ln:i,hin the cylinders of an internal cornbustion engine.

Because the bottom of thls cafburetor i-s fj-lled entirely with the main
napori-zing filtere a float chamber must be mounted seperately
-of and at such
a position as to frai-ntain a fuel level below the top the filter. Main
aj-i entry into the carburetor J.s through an ordinar! type aj-r filter, and
;lie air then passes downward into and thru. the maj-n vaporlzing filter and
tce liquid tuel where upon it bubbles upward lnto a mixing chamber. The
a-ir passing thru this liquid fuel and filter creates bubbles whi-ch are bro'
..en up by the part of the filter above the liquid level thereby vaporizing
:n e f u e l .

An auxj-liary alr inlet is provided :along with its own air filter and a
eutterfly valve to act as a mixture control, thi.s allows extra air to ent-
er the mixing chamber to keep the original mixtrlre from being too rich. As
:his auxiliary a:ir enters the mixing chamber it is swirled away from the
center by a turbulator to help in the mi-xing process anti to keep it from
--raveling straight do'wn into the engine and creat-lng too lean a mixture.
lhis auxiliary a'lr must be controlled by linkag.e to the the accelerator
redal along with the main butterfly valve control ,

A simple system that works well when fitted to stati-onary er:si-nes where
r.he engine rpm i.s constant. Mixture control by h-nkage can be tri-cky when
engine rpm is constantly changed up and downo Mixture control can be your
biggest problem when building any mileage carburetor.

This carburetor is of the basic form or type written about ln an article

from a 1974 i.ssue of Mechanlx fl-lustrated where a man by the narne of LaPan
cl-aimed to get 6O to 100 mpg. The article luas more about humidifier type
carburetors though, where the ma-i-nvaporizing fi-lter rotates through the _
liquld fuel ald air is drawn through a pa-rt of the filter that is not under
'the liquid.

l,lr Tucker makes no: s:peci.fic claims to efficiency, but does clairn thi-s
carburetor will del-iver a completely vaporized or dry gas to the engine
rhich is raixed $rtth sufficient air to conplete the burni-ng process within

lhe basics of the Gemard carburetor shown here are sirupl-e, but can be
e. :i: conplieated to buil-d. It works on the basis of a slmple heat exchang'
;l :: vaporize the fuel-.

-iis carburetor uses two impellers driven by electric motors to suck alr
:5:rrgh a venturi type fuel noZzter and then s6nd this atomized fuel & alr
-*:.:;Ce through a heat exchanger to fu11y vaporize the fuel. This vapor-
- -ea mlxture [hen rema-Lns inside the heat exchanger til such tirne as needed
:[ -uh€ engi-ne. A sli-ght pressure is maintained withln the heat exchanger by
::3 im n e l l e r s .

As the engine requires fuele a valve controlled by li-nkage to the butter

:-;,'va1ve is-opened and allows the vapor to mix with incoming air to the
*:-ij-ne. Thi-s vllve for mixture controlr &s wi-th most other systems of this
:t'!e, can be tricky to get into co-ordination with throttl-e opening. Tlis
:a:buretor is a simple version of the Pogue carburetor shown later on in
: r-j s book, and coul-d be hi-ghly dangerous due to the ai-r entering the heat
*:rchanger along the fuel. The wi-se bullder would be to have one
-: :lore heat ccntrol- valves afflxed to keep temperatures from rising to a
::irt where the fuel wi-ll explode. AJso this air/fuel nixture w:Lthi.n the
::at exchanger should be kept very richr so rich in fact, that an explosi.on
llrr::1C normally be impossible.

l;o specific cl-alms are made by the inventor other than conplete burning

The Newbery carburetor i.s not rea11y a carbttretor in the nornal sense
f the worcl. iather, it i-s a series of two heat exchangers that dellver a
aporized fuel to the intake manifold of the engine.

The two heat exchangers are of a type that provlde a large surface of
heated metal (in the form of baffLes) and a rather long path for the fuel
to travel before being nixed with the fresh air. This large heated area &
long path are the means for vaporizing the fuel before it is . mixed with the
air-in ttre intake mani-fold. The fuel enters into the flrst exchanger via
a controlled spray nozzle, this first exchanger vaporizes a large portion
of the fuel which is then passed lnto the second exchanger for further va-
porizing and. expansion to a true dry state.

Exhaust fron the engirie enters the second chamber first so as to produce
a highei temperature to be transfered to the fuel- just befor e being- all - ow ed
to mix w:ith the fresh ai-rr supposedly to bring the-aLready vaporized fuel
to 6. truely dry state.

As no means for mixture control i-s provj-ded f presume that the fuel is
controlled by the spray nozzJ-e and the choke valve being interconnected to
the throttle- so as irot- to al1ow too much air for too l-ean a mixture. The
inventor no system for startingr so a primer of some kind would
have to be affixed.

The i-nventor makes no specific claims as t o effi-ciency other than thj.s

carburefor delivere a truely dry vapor fuel t o the engine and produces

This inventionrelatesto a devicefor obtainingintimatecontactbetweena liquid in a truly vaporousstateand a gas,and

particularlyto sucha devicewhich may serveas a carburetorfor internalcombustionengines.Carburetorsas commonly
usedfor supplyinga combustiblemixtureof air and liquid fuel to internalcombustionenginescomprisea bowl in whicha
supplyof fuel is maintainedin the liquid phaseand a fueljet whichextendsfrom saidsupplyof liquid fuel and terminares
a passagethroughwhichair is drawnby the suctionof the enginecylinders.On the suctionor intakestrokeof the cylinders,
air is drawnoverand aroundthe fueljet and a chrge of liquid fuel is drawntherefromand brokenup and partiallyvaporiz-
ed during its passage
to the enginecylinders.In suchcarburetorsa relativelylargeamount of the atomizedfuel is not
vaporizedand enterstheenginecylindersmoreor lessin the form of microscopic
droplets.Whensucha chargeis ',fired" in
the enginecylinder,only that portion of the liquid fuel which hasbeenconvertedinto the vaporousand consequently
molecularstate,combinesthe air to givean explosivemixture.The remainingportionof the.liquidfuel whichis drawninto
the enginecylindersand remainsin the form of smalldropletsdoesnot burn and therebyimpart powerto the engine,but
tendsto increasethe cylinderheadtemperature abovethar at which the engineoperatesmost efficiently.
I havefound the efficiencyof a carburetorcan be increased if the liquid is brokenup and convertedinto the vaporous
phasein advanceand independent of the suctionof the engine.I havealsofound that the efficiencyof rhe engineis further
if thepreviouslypreparedfuel vaporsarecausedto expandbeforebeingintroducedinto theenginecylinderand if
a reservesupplyof suchliquid fuel vaporsfor introductioninto theenginecylinderis maintainedundera slightpressure,
that when the conduitthroughwhich the vaporspassto be mixedwith the atmosphericair beingdrawn into the engine
cylindersis opened,the pressurewill causethe gasesto be forcedthroughsuchpassage
and their introductioninto the
enginecylinderswill not be dependent
solelyupon the suctioncrearedby the enginecylinders.
It is an object of the presentinventionto providea carburetorin which the liquid fuel is brokenup and preparedin
advanceof and independent of the suctionof the engineand in which a reservesupplyof dry vaporswill be maintained
underpressure readyfor introductioninto the enginecylinderat all is alsoan objectof the inventionto providea
carburetorin which the dry vaporsare heatedto a sufficientextentprior to beingmixedwith the main supplyof air which
carriestheminto the enginecylinderto causethemto expandso that theywill be relativelylighterand will becomemorein-
timately'mixedwith the air prior to their explosionin the enginecylinders.
I have found that when the reservesupply of dry vapors is heatedand expandedprior to being admixedwith the at-
mosphericair, a greaterproportion of the potentionenergyof the fuel is obtanedand the mixture of air and fuel vaporswill
explodein the enginecylindersat the correct rate and without any apparentraisein cylinder head temperature.
More particularly, the presentinvention comprisesa carburetorin which liquid fuel vapors are passedfrom a main
vaporizingchamberunderat leasta slight pressureinto and througha heatedchamberwherethey arecausedto expandand
ih which dropletsof liquid fuel are eithervaporizedor separatedfrom the vapors,so that the fuel farally introducedinto the
enginecylinderis in a true vaporousphase.The chamberin which the liquid fuel vaporsare heatedand causedto expand
preferablycomprisesa seriesof passages through which the vaporsand the exhaustgasesfrom the enginepassin tortuous
pathsand in sucha manneras the exhaustgasesare brought into heat interchangerelation with the vapors
and give up a
part of their heat to the vaporsto causetheir heatingand expansion.
The initial vaporizationor atomizationof the liquid fuel is causedto a largeextent
by the passage of atmosphericair
througha constantbody of liquid fuel maintainedin the bottom of the main vaporizing
chamber,but fbr reasonswhich will
be hereinafterpointed out, suchvaporizationof the liquid fuel is preferablysupplimented
by one or more atomizingjets,
but the vaporsfrom suchjets are alsocausedto passthrough thg heatingchamber
wherethey will be.expandedto haveany
liquid dropletsremoved.
i rhe nozzles(9) are externallythreaded
at their lower endsto facilitatetheir assembry
into the chamber(r) and to permit
lhemto be removedreadilyshouldcleaningbe
required.The upper endsof the nozzres
(9) are surroundedby venturi tubes
n"utnt a baffle plate (l l) locatedat their
upper endsopposirethe outlets of
ltol the nozzles.The Iiquid fuel beingforced
from the endsof the nozzles(9) into the restrictedportions of the venturi tubes
causesa rapid circulationof the air and

The upper end of the vaporizingchamber(l)
is open and vapors formed by atmospheric
air bubbling up through the

neatlngand expandingchamber(2)' As is (e)w't passinro
clearlyshownin fig. l, the chamber(2) comprises
a seriesof tortuouspassages
F)and (16) leadinr from the bottom to the top' The vaporspass

exit (lE) beingprovided for that purpose.
tbht passingupwardly in a zigzagpath
"apo" through the passages (15) will be brought into heat interchange
ih the hot walls of the passages relation
(16) for the exhaustgases.The totar
rengthof the passages (r5) and (16)
htively large reservesupplyof the dry is such that a
vapor is alwaysmaintainedin the chamber
(2), and by maintainingthe vaporsin
rt exchangewith the hot exhaustgases
for a substantialperiod.,the vaporswill
absorbsufficientheat from thosegasesto
hsethe vaporsto expand'with the result
that when they are withdiawn from the
top of the chamber(2) they wilr be in a
Fly vapor phase,and due to their expansion,
any minute dropletsof liquid fuel entrained
by the vaporsin the chamber(l) will precipitate
out in the lower passages
Dand flow backinto the chamber(l) or elsebe vaporized
by the heatabsorbedfrom the hot exhaustgases
ough chamber(2). in their passage
page 24

The upperend of the vapor passages (15)communicateswith openings(19)adjacentthe upperend of the downdraft tube
(20)leadingto the intake manifold of the engine.Valves(21)are interposedin the openings(19)so that the passages
of the
vapors therethroughinto the air tube may be controlled. The valves(21) perferablyare of the rotary ptug type and are
controlled as hereinafter described.
Suitable meansare provided for causingthe vapors to be maintained in the chamber (2) under a pressuregreater than
atmospheric,so that when the valves(21) are openedthe vaporswill be forced into the air tube (20) independentlyof the
suctionof the engine.Suchmeansmay comprisean air pump for forcing the atmosphericair through the pipe (4) into the
chamber(l) beneaththe falsebottom (3), but I prefermerelyto providethe pipe (4) with a funnel shapedinlet end {221and
locatedjust behindthe usualfan (23)equippedon most all automobiles.That will causethe air to passthroughthe pipe (4)
with sufficientforce to maintainthe desiredpressurein the chamber(2) and the air beingdrawn through the radiator by the
fan will be preheatedprior to its introductionthe chamber(l) and hencewill vaporizegreateramountsof the liquid fuel. If
desiredthe pipe (4) may be surroundedby an electricor other heater,or exhaustgasesfrom the enginemay be passed
around it to further preheatthe air passingtherethoughprior to its introductioninto the liquid fuel in the bottom of the
chamber(l). The air tube (20)is providedwith a butterfly valve(24)for throttle, and a chokevalve(25)as is customarywith
carburetorsused for internai combustionengines.The upper end of the air tube (20) extendsabove the chamber(2) a
distancesufficient to receivean air filter and/or silencer,if desired.
A low speedor idling jet (25) has its upper end communicationwith the passagethrough rhe air tube (20) adjacentthe
throttling valve (24) and its lower end extendinginto the liquid fuel in the bottom of the chamber(l). :
The low speedjet will supply fuel to the enginewhen the valvesare in a position such as to closethe passages(lg);
throughthe idling jet (25)is so smallthat undernormal operationsthe suctionthereonis not sufficient
however,the passage
to lift the liquid fuel from the bottom of the chamber(l).
To preventthe enginefrom backfiring into the vapor chamber(2) the endsof the passages(19) are coveredwith a fine
mesh screen(26) which operateson the principal of a minerslamp, and will preventthe vapors in the chamber(2) from
explodingin the eventof a backfire,but will not interferesubstantiallywith the passage of the vaporsfrom the chamber(2)
into the air tube (20) when the valves(21) are in the open position.The air tube (20) preferablyis in the form of a venturi
with the greatestrestrictionbeingat that point wherethe openings(19)are located,so that whenthe valves(21)are opened
therewill be a pulling force on the vaporsbecauseof the increasedvelocityof the air at the restrictedportion of the air tube
(20) oppositethe openings(19), as well as an expellingforce on them due to the pressurein the chamber(2).
As shownin fig. 3, the operatingmechanismfor the valves(19)is so connectedthe operatingmechanismfor the throttte
valve (241that they are openedand closedsimultaneouslywith the openingand closingof the throttle valve, so that the
amount of vapor suppliedto the enginewill at all timesbe in proportion to the demandsplacedon the engine.To that end,
each valve (19) has an extention or operating stem (27) protruding through one of the side walls of the vapor heating and
expandingchamber(2). Sealsor packingglands(28) of the ordinary constructionsurroundthe stems(27) wherethey pass
through the chamberwall to preventleakageof vaporsat thosepoints.
Operatingarms (29) are rigidly securedto the outer endsof the stems(27'1andextendtowardseachother, the arms are
pivotally and adjustablyconnectedto a pair of links (30)which at their lower endsare pivotally connectedto an operating
link (31) which in turn is pivotally connectedto an arm (32) rigidly securedon an outer extension(33) of th' sternof the
throttle valve (24). The extension(33) also has rigidly securedthereto an arm (34) to which is connectedan operating link
(35) leading from the meansfor acceleratingthe engine.
The meansfor adjustably connectingthe upper endsof the links (30) to the valve stems(2?) of the valves(19) so that the
amount of vapors deliveredfrom the chamber(2) may be regulatedto causethe most efficient operation of the particular
engineto which the carburetor is attached,compriseangular slides(36) to which the upper ends fo the links (30) are fasten-
ed, and which are slidablybut not-rotatablymountedin guideways(37)in the arms (29).The slides(36)havethreadedbores

page 25
which screws(38)pass.The screwsare rotatablymountedin the arms(29), but are
,lhroTeh held againstlongitudinatmove-
ment so that when they are rotatedthe slides(36) will be causedto move along the guideways
(37) and changethe relative
position of the links (30) to the valve stems(27) so that a greateror less
movement,ahd consequentlya greateror lesser
openingof the ports (19) wiil take placewhen the throttle valve(24) is operated.
For safetyand for most efficientoperationof the engine,the vaporsin the chamber(2)
shouldnot be heatedor expanded
beyonda predetermined amount and in order to control the extentto which the vaporsare heatedsrru and !vrrJ!\iu
consequentlythe ex-
lent 10 which they are expanded,a valve(39) is locatedin the exhaustpassage(16)adjacentthe inlet (17). The vatve(39) is
preferablythermostatically controlled,as for example,by an expandingrod thermostat(40) which extends
through the
chamber(2)' However, any ogher meansmay be provided for reducingthe
it -
amount of hot exhaustgasesentering the
passages (16)when the temperature of the vaporsin the chamberreachesor exceeds
'The the optimum.
enginehas6eendescribed in detailin connectionwith a down-drafttypeof carburetor,but is is to be understood
its usefulness is not restrictedto that particulartypeof carburetor,but couldbe madeadaptable
to the side-draftor eventhe
up'draft type of carburetorif desired,and that the mannerin which the mjxture
of atmosphericair and dry vaporsis
introducedinto the enginecylindersis immaterialas far as the advantages of the engineare concerned.
The term "dry vapor" is usedhereinto definethe physicalconditionof the liquid
fuel vapor after the removalof all
liquid dropletsor mist which is frequentlyentrainedin what is ordinarilytermed
a vapor.
From the foregoingdescription, it will be seenthat the presentinventionprovidesa carburerorin which the breaking
of the liquid fuel, or total vaporization,for subsequent usein the engineis totallyindependent of the suctioncreatedby the
engine,and that after the liquid fuel is broken up and totally vaporizedit is maintained
under a tight pressurein a heated
spacefor a length of time sufficient to permit all entrainedliquid or mist particles
to be separatedor vaporizedand to
permit'thedry vaporsto expandprior to their introductionand admixture
with the main volumeof atmospheric air passing

few have built systems that get a drastic i-ncrease. The Pogue i.s the rnost
famous of allr yet there aTe easier rlays to vaporize fuel and control mixt
than those used by Pogue. Exhaust injected directl-y i.ntc the flow of a mist
of fuel will vaporize the fuel very rapidJyr &I1d a venturi can confrol the
rnixture much more accurately than can mechanical valves. We are worklng on
system of our own at this time. fn our experiments we are using a standarC
two barrel carburetor with which to control mlxture thru the venturi-ls. \l/e
haverun several turns of copper tublng around the exhaust plpe to parti-a1ly
vaporlze the fuel before the venturi suck it into the air stream. The fuel
aii are then drawn thru a series of filters of a highly absorbent materj-al.
The filters catch any fuel that ls not fu1ly vaporized and absorb it onto a
surface that allows the air passing thru to rapidly evaporate the liquid..i

Last Januray ( 1981) talked to a Mrs Albert pogue in Wtnnepegr
_Canqdaby teiephone. ""
She is the wife of Albert Pogu6, Char3-esP6gilers
brother and she confirmed ihat Charles Pogue was at that tLme still
alive ai the age of 81 and thirt he was living ln a rest home there Ln
Winnepeg. She would not tel-l- us which one and she wouLd not deny nor
conflrn any firrther questions. We got the i.mpressi.on that ALbert was
there w'ith her as she kept asking soneone else in the room what she
Should say to our questions, but she said he was not at home. She also
said ihat Charles would not ialk to anyone nor would he arrswer any of
his nall and kept refusing to help in any way ln our endeavor to rnake
contact wlth him. Since they have been hamassed and called by phone
more than they would l-i-ke over the past 45 or ao yearsr vre wiLl- keep
their phone number our secret and lei ihem have some peace.

In our own research into a better way to use gasoLine in automobiLes

we have yet to make our systera vrork out as we had hoped. We can do a
reasonable Job of increasing efficiency at a constant highway speed and
have better than doubled the gas mi.leage of our 1975 OldsmobiLe vrj-th a
455cLd V8 engine. Howeverr w€ are unabl-e to keep the systern working
at constantly varying throttle settings. ft insists on floodlng out at
tl mes of d e c c e l e r a ti o n a n d l e a n s too much upon acceler ationr w@have
declded that if we are going to have this nany problems we ut}l attempt
something in the range of super hlgh rnlleage lnstead of just
mi.leage. Therefor we have dropped our research into the system shown
on page 28 in favor of a super heati-ng system that will total-Ly and
f,uLly vaporize the fueL before it is ever mixed wj-th the incoming air.

The Latest world. mil-eage record has been upped to nore than 20OO mpg
in Sydney Australia at the Warvrick Farrn motor racing track. A three-
whee ler p o w e r e d by a l O cc (0 .6 1 cubic lnch) engine- of the model- air pla ne
variaty drove the vehicle at an average of 15 miles per hour around the
track and obta:i-neC a fantastic 21236 during a fu1l throttle rurlr
The second place vehlcl-e used the spri-nt exd coast rnethod or fulL power
for short birsts and then coasting wittr ttre engine off untilI almost
conlng to a stop whj.le the first place w:ith the fantastic mileage used
f,ull throttle wide open for the entire run, The prevlous 1980 record
was 1 1368 npg set in Great Brltain beating out the then previ'ous 1973
recor d of 3 7 9 n p g .

We purchased. an original FISH Carburetor some time agor nade adapter

and some f-inkage changes on our 75 01ds to install it. The carburetor
rnade the car run excellent, increased pourer and acceleration but could
not be adjusted lean enougfi to increase our fuel mlleage. In fact it got
worse (2.7 mpg) and after three weeks of adjustlng and experimentlng -
u/e got ttred of it and put the carburetor on the shelf. Mike Brown of
The Madison Company- Box 206- Berea, KY 40403 606-986-9744 has gone
lnto production of the FISH Carburetor recently and guarantees that you
can get a 20% lncrease or he vrlIl refund your noney. We presume frorn
his drawings that he has nade a few rnodlflcattons to the originaL FTSH
deslgn and probab3-y has more luck than we had w:lth one of the origlnal

For those of _youwho desire ful-l and complete patent drawings for
any of these carburetorsr order them fron the Ii.S] PATBI\ITOFTIdE
WASHINGTONT_ DC 20231 not from us, They cost 5Oc each and you must -
them know the patent nurnber, the inventors name and the islue d.ate.
T_n"y are sl-ow like all other government agencyr s so be prepared. to be
about 90 days i-n getting your order from them.
BRA! DENNISa combustion englneer in St Paul, MN has been quoted.
as saylng: Carburetion systems being installed on new toddy are no
nor e ef fi c 1 e n t t ha n th e y w e re i n 1920. The best use for a fixed- ventur j-
styl-e c^arbureior should be aF_? 1"rg9 paperweight. Todays iiquid
expel fuel particles in the 400 to )00 mlcron sj-ze which travel at"url" about
1, 50 f e e t p e r s e c o n C fro m th e ca rb u r eior to the combustion cham ber in
l ess t h a n . 0 7 s e co n d s a n d e ve n th e n only spend about .OZ5 second.sin th e
com b u s t i o n p h a s e .On th i s b a si s, i t is lmposslble to tr 4r n the fuel- j- nto a
vaporr mlx it w:ith the air and oxldize or burn it to froduce power.
.-,. Pogue and others have been rlght all al-ong, the liqui-d fuel must be
vaporlzed fuliy before belng mixed with ihe incon-ing alr or most of the
fuel goes right out the exhaust nanifold in the form of HC or as most
us know i.t 'ljnburneci l{ydrocrbons (Carbon Monoxide, Etc). ff almost all
of t he f u e l g o i n g i n to th e cyri n d e rs wer e io bur n, ther e would be no
need for the catalytic converter. Cars uslng propane and bu',ane fuel- &
not fltted wlth a carburetor for l-io-uid :ueis- are exempt from federal
l?wg 'req u i r i n g _ ca ta i yl r-q co n ve rte rs as the fuel- is in a vapor to star t
wlih and the unburned hydrocarbons are so minimul that ihe ?ehicles d-o
meet federal s'band.a-rdseven ',viihout ihe catal-ytic converter.
