As a side note , if the Fuel [ gasoline ] were heated carefully , and the Fuel ' now ' with the addition of Water , obviously the Concoction is moving via heat , just boiling , the Vapor now comes with Atmosphere .

Heating gasoline to the boiling point??? sounds like a recipe for an explosion! Ever hear of a Bleve? Back at the turn of the 1900s, several 'vaporizers' were tried, using gasoline. They were not practical as it was VERY hard to regulate the amount of vapor used. Changing speed and load caused problems that could not be dealt with. Nice idea but it sucked. When the mixture ran lean, often the result was a backfire thru the intake, that more often than not, lit up the vaporizing device. BIG fires resulted.
