Water in the combustion chamber to get better gas mileage? And performance?

Has anyone tried to suck vaporized water into the engine to get better horsepower and gas mileage? I've been thinking about making this into a project. What you would need is: a plastic bottle that you can close air tight, some vacuum hose, a fish take airator, air filter element, and a way to connect everything up. If you have tried this on any engine I would love to hear your experience with this project.

Do some research on "water injection", you'll find a lot of information on the subject.

Use on my Diesel, works on Gassers as well. Follow the products link and it will take you to Jeep.

Great company, great product.

It may work in your "squeeze n burn" diesel Jeep, but gas?

Here's something in that same category -

K&J Magnetics - Fuel Magnets

And for yourself:

Pyramid Power

Gemstone Magic and Crystal Healing: Using the Power of the Earth for Therapeutic Purposes

Look at the JC Whitney catalog - lots of "magic thngs" there.

Yup, PT Barnum was right!

Um, no. It does work on gassers to. Scientifically proven, plus good dyno results.

Same theory as why your jeep seems to have more horsepower on cold humid days. Colder, and more dense air, makes a bit higher compression, and better fuel burn ~ spraying a mist of water and methanol into the intake instantly evaporates doing the same thing. Lowering the intake air temp, making the air more dense.

BTW my Diesel is an 02 Dodge 3500. I'd love to have a 4bt conversion Jeep, and to be sure, it [w/m injection] would be on there. The wife however will not let me touch her Jeep performance wise, only maintenance and repair.
