An energy and automotive advancement activist Byron Wine, created a website that provides over 350 documented examples of vehicles that are far more efficient than most vehicles available today.
Byron indicates how over the past 32 years he has been contacting government officials in hopes of promoting alternative energy solutions only to have the door slammed in his face every time.
While the website is not as organized as one would like, it is packed with a lifetime of accumulated information. Some of the vehicles include 72-mpg and 104-mpg automobiles that were sold in Europe and Japanese made water fueled automobiles. One of the more intriguing examples is a car built by shell that got 376 mpg!
1959 Opel that got 376 MPG. Built in 1973.
Byron illustrates his findings in a book that the Shell Co. wrote called “Fuel Economy of The Gasoline Engine.” These writings portray fuel economy growth up to 376 mpg over a 40 year span. The book is inherently difficult to find for purchase, but apparently can be found in university libraries. Byron has a link on the website with some pictures and information from the book.
I’m an automobile enthusiast and at one point in time I was interested in developing my own vehicle one day. I’ve done research on electric vehicles, pneumatic vehicles, vegetable oil run diesel motors, fuel cells that generate hydrogen for fuel, water powered vehicles, and many more. Byron’s website has by far the most information. There is also a very good documentary called “Gasshole” that can be found on Hulu which discusses vehicles that have gotten over 1000 mpg.
