****************************************************
  WHAT'S NEW (top)   In my last newsletter I obviously touched an extremely sensitive nerve, trying to use my influence to balance what I perceive as political suppression.   I received a huge email response, from both 'sides', with lots of information that I didn't know. I will not pass that information on as most of it will simply inflame both 'sides'.   I do see a very divided country and I truly wish to see everyone working together to develop and implement practical energy solutions.   Instead of discussing politics, I will address issues for which I actually have expertise, interim answers and direct ability to R&D even better answers.   It is a fact that today's energy problems will continue to get worse until there are real practical solutions. We can develop those solutions!  

=====================================================

Issue Feature: FUEL SAVERS (top)
  This feature will address the individual responsibility side of Fuel Savers. I need to address the environmental consequences of energy decisions with you because in the next newsletter I'm going to be presenting some answers. We all need to understand the issues before we can develop or understand the answers.   In the long run it does not matter who is in office. Typically and finally it is always the people who decide the course of a nation by the mass of individual decisions. There are also certain physical realities that will happen regardless of who is in office. The key is to have viable, practical choices available when those realities need to be 'politically' addressed.   As you are likely already aware, there is concern about the volume of fossil fuel reserves we have to keep our civilization powered.   In researching this issue, I have come to the conclusion that this 'energy' concern is very real and like the 'Y2K bug', it will shut us down if it is not addressed. Y2K was 'easy' to fix, because everyone knew what it was and exactly when it needed to be repaired. Enough money and expertise was thrown at it to achieve better than 99% 'cure' of the problem.   If we keep using fossil fuel, we will run out. We've already used up the 'easy to get' supplies and are working on sources that require greater resources to acquire.   We do not need to run out of energy to start to have very serious consequences. Simple shortages will be very dramatic, particularly if they are a chronic problem. We are already starting to see these problems. It is nearly impossible to determine the exact time of 'serious' energy problems.   First because technology of efficiency is always increasing, extending our energy reserves. However, we can't 'save' our way out of the physical reality of 'fixed volume' nonrenewable energy.   Second because higher prices of fuel 'make' more expensive fossil-fuel options available, extending reserves. There is a catch though, because these options typically involve using more energy to get the energy, resulting in less net energy and greater net pollution.   Third because there is a lot of alternative technology being developed and implemented that uses renewable energy for heat and/or power.   So in a nutshell we, as individuals, need to make choices that 'cost' us a little now and lead the way to saving our civilization. Sounds dramatic? It isn't! We are absolutely in the zone where our energy decisions will make the difference for all future generations.   Renewable energy independence can be done. If started now, the effect on our standard of living will be minimized. If we wait until fossil fuel is running short and higher priced, the consequences are going to be a lot worse because it takes energy to build the new energy infrastructure.   EVERYTHING is affected by our use of nonrenewable energy. If it was taken away, we would be worse off than 'stone age' people because we no longer have the skills to survive 'off the land' and our population density is billions too great for the land to support without fossil fuel assist. Any reduction in cheap readily available energy affects our societies dramatically.   http://www.eia.doe.gov/oiaf/economy/energy_price.php http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/cabs/chron.php http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/us.php http://www.ncseonline.org/NLE/CRSreports/energy/eng-3.cfm?&CFID=17377939&CFTOKEN=66131728 http://www.ecology.com/secret-world-of-energy/   I just acquired a book that I highly recommend. It educates from the basic concepts right through to the consequences of our current energy path. It is well researched, simple and clear.   THE PARTY'S OVER. War, Oil and the Fate of Industrial Societies. By Richard Heinberg. New Society Publishers www.newsociety.com ISBN 0-86571-482-7   Also check out: IT'S THE CRUDE DUDE. War, Big Oil and the Fight for the Planet. By Linda McQuaig. ISBN 0-385-66010-3   http://dieoff.com/page234.htm http://www.gravmag.com/oil.php   We first need to conserve energy whenever possible. There is a lot of information on conventional energy saving for home and industry.   There is almost no information on saving fuel in vehicles (where we spend a huge percentage of fossil fuel). Our fuel saving techniques will save you much more than they cost and as fuel prices continue to rise, you save even more.   After making use of every means to maintain standard of living using efficiency to cut fuel consumption; then it is time to start developing the ambient energy sources around you. That is a subject for another newsletter.   Here are a couple more interesting links: http://environment.about.com/cs/sustainability/ht/envirofriendly.htm http://www.treepower.org/biomass/quickfacts.php

FUEL SAVER NEWS: (top)
   Scary Facts: The USA consumes about 25% of the world's daily oil production. The USA imports over 50% to meet that demand.  

The ramifications of Peak Oil are so serious, one of George W. Bush's energy

advisors, investment banker Matthew Simmons has stated, "The situation is desperate. This is the world's biggest serious question" http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/061203_simmons.php http://www.simmonscointl.com/files/79.pdf   In May 2001, George W. Bush went on the record as saying, "What people need to hear loud and clear is that we're running out of energy in America."   Vice-President Dick Cheney publicly acknowledged the reality of Peak Oil in 1999 when he stated: "By some estimates, there will be an average two-percent annual growth in global energy demand over the years ahead, along with, conservatively, a three percent natural decline in production from existing reserves. That means that by 2010 we will need on the order of an additional 50 million barrels per day."   Oil-producing nations of the world are currently pumping at full capacity yet they are only producing 82.5 million barrels per day. Raising production by 50 million barrels per day is essentially impossible. Cheney's remarks were thus a tacit admission of the severity and imminence of the peak. http://focus.comdirect.co.uk/en/news/article.php?server=afx&id=1092185112   As I'm sure you are aware, vehicles consume a huge percentage of our fossil oil. About 60% of USA oil goes directly into vehicle fuel tanks. Yet the USA government has NEVER truly addressed this issue. In fact, there has been a consistent discrediting of 'fuel savers' in general. The 'penalties' that OEM vehicle manufacturers are supposed to pay for not meeting mileage guidelines are generally NOT enforced. Part of the reason may be that about 70% of every dollar spent on fuel goes to the government in taxes.   One of my Pet Peeves is that OEM continues to use technology like catalytic converters to 'reduce' pollution. Burning the fuel in the exhaust causes twice as much net pollution as burning the fuel in the engine.   My 'anti-pollution' answer is to burn the fuel in the engine (where it can be converted into mechanical power) instead of in the exhaust pipe where the energy is worse than wasted because pollution was created for no useful purpose other than to make some 'Vested Interest' richer.   We really need to start, on an individual level, to implement every fuel saving technique we can and vehicles need to be addressed MORE than homes. We cannot trust 'Vested Interest' to provide solutions that are against their own 'best' interest.   http://dayton.senate.gov/~dayton/releases/2002/04/2002418B10.php http://www.icbe.com/carbonforkids/   This is where our fuel savers come into the picture. We've researched and refined technology since 1984 and now we have (in my opinion) the world's most practical fuel saving information for vehicles.   These links will help explain how you can take advantage of combustion enhancement technology available NOW: http://www.eagle-research.com/FAQ/FS/fsfaq.php   Note that there is a PDF flowchart to assist you. http://www.eagle-research.com/products/pfuels.php   -----------   Here is a link to a site to help you calculate your fuel consumption. http://www.roity.com/petrol/index.asp Here is a link to a site that lists what your fuel consumption should be, according to your vehicle manufacturer. http://www.icbe.com/carbondatabase/epamileagedata.asp  
Next Stage Of Fuel Saver Technology On The Honda   We have now confirmed our mileage baseline is 40 MPG (US gallon). Our baseline includes the fuel pressure regulator and the deceleration fuel shutoff (which is the RPM version and continues to work GREAT).   We are now assembling the Carburetor Enhancer, with electronic upgrade, and the HyZor system to install by end of February/05.    See pictures and schematics of the upgrade to date. www.eagle-research.com/fuelsav/83honda/83honda.php   Before Engine Rebuild:   Total time invested to date: 10 hours Total money invested to date: actual cost $270 (least cost = $150) Technology installed: fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, vacuum gauge, automatic fuel shutoff 'rpm' circuit. EPA highway mileage (US gallon) 34 mpg, our current mileage 40 mpg.

  Energy guru Amory Lovins sees a world without petroleum   By: TERENCE CHEA - Associated Press   SAN RAFAEL -- The United States has a future beyond oil, and Amory Lovins has a plan to take the country there. Lovins, who emerged as one of the nation's most influential energy thinkers during the last oil crisis three decades ago, drives a hybrid that gets 64 miles per gallon and lives in a solar-powered house that is so energy efficient, he's able to grow bananas in an indoor jungle high in the Rocky Mountains. Now, as crude prices hit record highs and American soldiers battle to control Iraq, he's preaching what he practices, trying to persuade America's business and government leaders that the nation can end its dependence on foreign oil, and make money along the way.   "The United States can get completely off oil and revitalize its economy led by business for profit," says Lovins, who runs the Rocky Mountain Institute in Snowmass, Colo. "Saving and substituting for oil costs less than buying oil. Getting completely off oil makes sense and makes money."   A new book by Lovins and his think-tank colleagues, "Winning the Oil Endgame," offers a technology-driven blueprint to wean the country off petroleum within a few decades: first, double the fuel efficiency of cars, trucks and airplanes; then replace gasoline with alternative fuels such as ethanol and hydrogen...   (details of plan excluded from this newsletter)   ...if this plan is widely adopted, Lovins calculates that the country could stop importing oil by 2040 and run without oil by 2050. Long before then, fuel efficient cars and alternative fuels could become new growth industries for urban and rural America.   "We're in that period where one idea is dying and another is struggling to be born," Lovins says.

  George, I just want to thank you again for all your good work. Currently we are building our third prototype Windcrank...in Tenn. We have also contracted w/a company in Canada to supply the direct drive generator. We think this will be a technical breakthrough in wind energy technology....   Thanks again George for all your hard work, we need more people like you on this fragile earth,   George Sikes..........another hard working (poor) inventor Check for progress at www.windcrank.com   ------------   George, It's been a while since the last time I wrote to you... the reason that I'm writing is that I recently discovered that the Dept. of Energy is taking applications for the Research Project- "Direct Energy Conversion From Waste Heat Recovery" for internal combustion engines. ... This is unrestricted for applications and I figured that you might be interested in taking a shot at it. They're looking for an increase in efficiency of at least 12% (I don't think that would be too tough for you!).   Heath, Not even a chance that I'll go for it. My experience is that such money comes with unacceptable strings. Further, since I've already achieved better results than their 'goal', using my own form of funding, and I'm constantly growing financially then why would I need their funding? They could simply buy my books and save themselves millions of dollars.   I like getting my R&D money by helping people that appreciate and support my research rather than spending my time (and money) justifying my existence to a government agency.   Thank you for thinking of me. I really do appreciate it. Experience has taught me to avoid government funding and I've made it a policy.   George
