FuelVapor Technologies has developed a new technology that has produced one of the highest mileage cars in North America. Created by inventor George Parker, this new concept car - the “alé” (alay) uses regular gasoline and a new “fuel vapor technology” to acheive what it advertises.
This car is really out-of-this-world, as it has only 3 wheels!! This design enables the car to perform at a superb level, as well as aid in improving fuel efficiency and aerodynamics. The car’s key innovation's are the fuel vapor system and it's light weight aerodynamic body. This fuel vapor technology (patent pending) allows the engine to run on “fuel vapors” rather than liquid fuel, which allows the “alé” to run on a ratio of over 20:1 without compromising performance. This means with a 10-gallon gas tank found on most vehicles, you can travel from Vancouver BC to San Francisco CA on one tank. Over 15 hours of driving without filling up.
The first prototype is now complete and the results are outstanding. Plans are for limited production ale's to begin fabrication in 2008. People have actually test-driven this beauty. For more details about the design, engine, features and pictures, visit their website. FuelVapor Technologies will also be competing in the "Automotive X-Prize" - a $10 million competition for the fastest 100mpg car in the world.
I'm certainly wishing them the best, for this could be an innovation we are all waiting for!!
