Dude there is a whole thread on this already - what it is, is a conductive washer that draws heat from your block and warms the injectors (increases the vapour pressure of the fuel). Thats why it only works when the engine is hot. Theory sounds good, and test trials sound good... but dont know if many people have actually used them.

I guess the next question is. Has anyone fitted this Vaporate thing on their ride and found that they have good results with it, etc, etc???

I've spoken to a few customers that have fitted it. One with a BA said he gets an extra 50km's a tank, but doesn't notice anything else (not sure what else he was hoping to notice since that's all the products ment to do). Another with a crapadore, forget which one said it worked - didn't tell me any more. And a taxi bougth one for his Falcon the other day, hoping to find out from him sometime...

Is'nt that off that movie, envy with jack black....? seriously but, all it appears to be is a metal block, i might try to use washers to warm up the injectors, but maybe i could get fancy and use and electric heating element with temperature control. ( i guess that would draw energy from the alternator) i guess thats the beauty of using something simple and passive. and yes i know someone else has mentioned using washers on an other thread its a good idea, so i'm not taking credet for it
