    Engine 'defect' adding to woes of car owners

    Editor's Note: Published on page A24 of the May 1, 2005 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

    AS THE price of gasoline continues to soar, many motorists are unaware that a "defect" in their car engines is helping drain their gas tanks of precious fuel, a mechanic-turned-inventor revealed.

    Worse, the "defect" in the engine's design has been contributing to the worsening air pollution in the country, said Pablo Planas, 67, of San Juan.

    According to Planas, he has discovered that the basic make-up of a car engine makes it waste gasoline and produce hazardous fumes, much of which is unburned fuel.

    "This unburned fuel is wasted fuel," Planas told the Inquirer in an interview at his office at the President's Tower in Quezon City.

    He said gasoline was being wasted whenever a driver lets go of the gas pedal and when the engine is kept running while the car is not moving.

    Planas explained that the problem lay mainly in the way the engine was built.

    For engines to run, he said, these need to burn a mixture of gasoline and air.

    "The right mix is fifteen parts of air and one part of gasoline, or a ratio of fifteen-to-one," Planas expounded.

    When a driver lets go of the gas pedal, the engine throttle, which allows air to come in and mix with gasoline, closes.

    With the throttle closed, Planas said, no more air gets into the engine, which is then forced to suck in more gasoline.

    Thus the mix of 15 parts air to 1 part gasoline becomes almost 100 percent gasoline, much of which is left unburned.

    The same happens when the engine is left on while the car is stopped.

    "That not only wastes gasoline but also creates pollution," said Planas, who started out as a mechanic-jeepney operator in the '70s.

    He said that when he discovered this "defect" in the car engine, he came up with an invention, now called the Khaos Super Turbo Charger.

    What the device simply does, Planas said, is allow air to enter the engine even when the throttle is closed. Thus, the "defect" is "cured," he said.

    Tests conducted by the Department of Energy and the Department of Science and Technology have shown that the "curing" of the "defect" has led to engine efficiency, which resulted in savings in gasoline consumption and nearly zero pollution.

    This statement alone proves that this snake oil salesman is peddling crap. With no air in the engine, there won't be combustion, with no combustion, the engine will conk out.

    i guess planas has been inhaling too much exhaust fumes lately.

    I guess its another one of those demonstration tests done to the department heads who know next to nothing about the functions of the device being explained by Planas in his "show & tell".

    You know, there's a lot of gullible persons in the world, but i cant imagine even the "intelligent" media people and govt officials believe what this Planas is talking about his "CHAOTIC" EQUIPMENT.Yeah dream on Planas.
