The US patent office is notorious for granting patents for perpetual motion machines http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?articleID...0FB809EC5880000. Yes, I realize this "vapor carb" is not a perpetual motion machine. Here is a page http://www.phact.org/e/dennis27.htm with some interesting comments and links (I like the snopes one) about mileage charlatans past and present.
By your conspiratorial logic the Toyota and Honda teams who developed and marketed this hybrid technology are in mortal danger from Detroit/big oils MIB. Do fuel cell designers have a greater mortality rate than the general population? Its comforting to view the world at the "grassy knoll" level of conspiracy, somewhere is a locked door behind which are all the answers.
