    Default Anybody seen a Aquatune for Diesel?

    Saw this some time ago and thought it looked interesting for a gas engined toy. Now that I am into MV diesels they have a unit for that as well. Seems to promise a bunch but still think it is interesting. Crazy expensive but still interesting.

    Any thoughts about viability?

    We used water/methanol injection on our Mack pulling truck. It made it possible to drive the truck to fairgrounds without burning pistons or turbos. It dropped the EGT a good 200 degrees which we desperately needed.

    How do you get around not getting water into your air compressor? On a lot of diesels the compressor air is pulled from the intake manifold

    Don’t make the same mistake we did, we put
    2 (two) of them on our truck so now anytime
    we drive very far we have to find a place to drain
    the extra fuel it keeps putting back in to our tank.

    Many years ago my brothers and I sat down with a JC Whitney catalog and added up all the gas saving/increased power/mpg features of all the water-injection, high-flow air filters, micro-atomizer screens for carburetors, hotter spark gadgets, all the rest, you could run a Camaro for a year on one tank of fuel.

    As they say in the commercials, "that's not how this works, that's not how ANY of this works."
