Marcus Aurelius Antoninus emperor of Rome 121-180 a. Was a stoic philosopher the last of the stoic emperors. He was deified after his death. And Bert. Chief of the Bureau of agn cultural and Indus Tel chemistry and his scientific cohorts were thinking about All along How to turn surplus. Corn into alcohol which is easy and then sell the alcohol which so they cooked up a widget that fits on the Carburettor and injects a Jolt of alcohol automatically whenever the engine begins to labor. This saves Money uses surplus alcohol makes the engine last longer and gives the Motorist a pleasanter ride. Sounds like the Ideal situation. The boys got to worrying what would happen when every filling station in the country had in Stock a few kegs of pure Gram alcohol to rat into engines. What if some of to accidentally of course flowed Dowier human bullets simple said a scientist who shall go unnamed. Just mix m a Little Poison As in denatured alcohol to give motorists who drank it instead of burned it a sever stomach ache. So be it. It turned out that automobile engines Are As delicate As human stomachs. Burn denatured alcohol in same and it pits the cylinders Gums up the Piston rings and soon sends the engine to the junk Heap. So the boys now Are trying to find a substance which when mixed with alcohol will Poison humans but not engines. In the meantime they Are driving their experimental cars with pure Ethyl alcohol of the same Quality that goes into cocktails. It works Fine too. Raises the octane rating of poor Gas if you want to get technical about it from fifty eight to at least seventy four. Their injector consists of an Al Cohol tank which fits under the Hood and a Jet arrangement which is attached to the Carburettor. The tank holds eighty five percent Al Cohol and fifteen percent water. The vacuum produced inside the engine the same vacuum that runs the Windshield wipers automatically sucks in a Jolt of alcohol when the going gets Tough. The scientists figure that in Ordinary country with Only the usual number of Hills an engine will run like jewelled watch on twelve Gallons of cheap Gas for every one gallon of alcohol and water. The government s original experiments which have been continuing eve since horseless carriages came equipped with sockets for buggy whips called for the Muring of the alcohol directly with the gasoline. That did t work so Well because the motors were Low pressure babies which clanked under the Best of circumstances. All the alcohol did was lower the Gas mileage and raise in vain the Hopes of Farmers for better markets for their Corn.
