Adding Salt Water to Fire Automobiles
On 30th march, 1992 Tom W Hill and Bryan S.Memmot filed a patent application titled “Alternative Fuel System for Powered Industrial Vehicle”. The method described in this application comprises a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) conversion kit. The CNG tank is mounted horizontally outside the engine compartment. A high pressure line is used to connect the conversion kit to a regulator which is mounted within the engine compartment for decompressing the gas to a pressure suitable for mixing with air in carburetor of the engine. A refilling receptacle with an electrical interlock was provided with the CNG kit so that it can prevent accidental drive away. A mounting arrangement within the engine compartment efficiently transmits heat from engine cooling system in order to counteract refrigeration effect due to gas decompression in the compartments of the system. Guard structures were employed in order to protect the system components from damage during normal operation of the vehicle.
