Directory:Green Mileage Maker by Vapster, Inc.
Page first featured July 1, 2009
Gerald Rowley, founder of Vapster, Inc. has been working on increasing fuel mileage for gasoline engines for over 15 years.
The newest product, the "Green Mileage Maker", has been shown to increase highway fuel mileage by 20-30% by pre-heating the fuel. Some of the vehicles that sport the device are a 1999 Ford Explorer, a 1993 Mazda MX6, a 2001 Ford Ranger, 2007 GMC Canyon, 3.7 liter. The newest addition will be a Ford 350 with a 7.3 L diesel engine.
A South Florida University has shown exhaust emission reductions on diesels with the device up to 80%. See test report below.
- "We are excited about the introduction of the product into the diesel line and hope to make a lot of truckers very happy."
Vapster and HHOs Meet:
While Gerald was at the HHO Games in Bradenton, FL in Feb. 09, displaying his "Green Mileage Maker", a pre-heater for fuel injector engines, he met many people involved with Hydroxy generators that inject electrolyzed hydrogen and oxygen into the air intake for improved mileage efficiency
Mr. Rowley's invention pre-heats the fuel before it enters the engine.
Gerald selected an HHO system that was simple and straight forward and easy to install. By combining the two systems Mr. Rowley said he was able to increase his fuel mileage by 45%.
Gerald encourages all the HHO enthusiasts to consider installing a "Green Mileage Maker" along with their own Hydrogen generator.
Up until July 1, 2009, these units were available for sale from their site, but they were advised by a potential investor to not sell the units until they have better product liability insurance as well as a stronger IP position. A U.S. patent has been filed, but international patents also need to be filed.
Gerald has a manufacturer lined up. All he needs now is the right investor(s).
How it Works
The Vapster unit pre-heats the fuel, which enables it to burn more efficiently. Earlier units used the exhaust to do that, but it was hard to hit and maintain the right temperature, so now the units are fitted with an electrical heater.
Installation can be done by anyone with nominal auto mechanical ability.
Gerald says that in testing the mileage he uses the standard method of topping off his tank, and calculating the miles driven per gallons added. He tries to get a good number of baseline tests "before" the changes are made, as well as a good number of tests "after."
In his Mazda, he has a one-gallon fuel tank in addition to the regular fuel tank, which he switches to for testing.
FL University Test Report
Gerald gave me the name of the university in Florida (which wishes to keep their name confidential) that tested his system in May of 2009, showing a drop in emissions and improvement in mileage. He showed me a copy of that report. -- Sterling D. Allan (July 1, 2009)
"Our company is based on proven technology [by which] vehicles can achieve lower emissions and higher fuel mileage."
"Our team is currently working with a major Florida state university for product introduction into the 'Clean Diesel' aspects of the marketplace."

Green Mileage Maker by Vapster, Inc. - Patent-pending device uses an electrical heater rather than exhaust to pre-heat the fuel, resulting in improvements in mileage by 20-30%, as well as a reduction in emissions by 80%, confirmed by a Florida university. Combined with hydroxy devices, the improvement in mileage goes as high as 45%. (PESWiki; July 1, 2009) (Comment at Examiner.com)
- The 50% MPG Gain That Detroit Won't Touch - Skeptical journalist takes a ride in a modified vehicle that utilizes a pre-heat vaporizer of the fuel to increase economy. He lets Detroit off the hook by saying that America's litigious spirit is what scares them away from implementing this added danger. (Washington Post; Aug 26, 2007)
