jMax Cell and Gadgetman Groove test Results


Vehicle base-line evaluation for fuel systems

OBJECTIVES – to measure a number of vital statistics around a vehicle and engine with all things being standard and then measuring the same parameters again after a modification to determine if there has been an improvement or degradation in fuel efficiency.

VEHICLE UNDER TEST – Toyota Corolla KE 70 1984 1.3 Litre. Over 240,000 km on the clock. Some big end knocking. Runs very well.

1 – Tyre Pressure set at 36 psi
2 – Timing set at 8° BTC
3 – Idle set at 700 RPM
4 – Petrol is Unleaded 91 Octane from pump 7 at Bell Street BP station. Tank Temperature is measured with an infrared instrument before and after the run. The tank is refuelled at the beginning of the run when the tank is the coolest and fuel is not expanded in volume. The nozzle is inserted into the filler tube to the first rib on the nozzle bend and filled slowly until the first auto cut out by the pump. This should give a standard refill.
5 – Exhaust temperature is measured after each run just below the manifold flange. At this stage it seems a bit difficult to get a reliable reading but will see how the reading shape up over a period of time.
6 – The chosen run is 42.30 km which is made up of about 15km of normal street driving and the remainder is on the free way where the speed is kept at a constant 90 km per hour where traffic permits. Street driving is around 60 to 70 km per hour where traffic permits. It is proposed to make the run each morning at about 10 am where possible.
7- Thermostat – 89° C
Notes: By following the above protocol should give a reliable evaluation of the vehicles standard performance from at least three runs before modifications.
All recordings will be recorded on a spread-sheet and members are encouraged to use this as a basis for all testing and may be developed and improved upon.

The above test resulted in an amazing 62.2mpg. However the following readings went back to normal. The cell was stripped down and cleaned but this figure has not been repeated yet. We will do another series very soon after the Gadget Groove testing.

28/09/09 38.83 mpg An increase of 13.3% 40.7 2.62 15.53 k/Lt $3.12 21:35pm

The average over five runs is 13.46 km per Litre. or 60.57 km per gallon or:
33.65 mpg which we will take as our base line figure.
We will now proceed to to test a variety of fuel modifications:
1 – The jMax Cell connected in a variety of configurations
a- Multi
core tube into air cleaner hanging over the carbie inlet
b- Open tube hanging over the carb
ie inlet and placed so that the air will have some draw on the cell
c- Blind connection to the inlet manifold
d- Blind connection to the thermostat housing
2 – A version of the Water4Gas cell wound as a spiral stainless mesh cells and air ia drawn into the cell and taken to manifold vacuum.

The cell manifests charged water much like the Joe cell and shows very promising results so far as a wire wound cell.
3- The water by-pass system to be fitted do determine efficiency improvements.
4- Mag
nets fitted to the fuel line to determine any change in efficiencies
5- To fit the Cold Vapourizer as the sole fuel system and then in conjun
ction with the j-Max cells and other viable Hybrid systems
6 – To test a variety of HOH cells as
supplementary fuel systems.
7- To fit and test steam injection and the effects on fuel combustion and power improvements.

Gadget Groove Modificatrion: September 282009 Recently I became acquainted with Ron Hutton in the usa

and became familiar with the Throttle Body Groove modification. Somehow Ron was inspired with an idea that does give

very beneficial results in performance and economy.

So far I have modified an ancient 1980 Ford 250ci and achieved 25mpg from around 19mpg.

Today I modified the Corolla as tested above and achieved15.53 km/lt or 38.83mpg which is about a 13.3% gain on the base line.

The acceleration is excellent for a 1.3 litre engine which we had considered was at the end of its days, so very happy.

If anyone would like a throttle body modified I am happy to do it now. The next vehicle will be the Proton which is fuel injection.

See and

HOW IT WORKS: I guess we are all familiar with smoke rings. The groove that is etched around

the butterfly sets upa pulsed pressure wave that is like a smoke ring and totally changes the air flow

dynamics in the manifold and the engine it self, giving much improved combustion. There is a good

graphic on the Gadgetman web site showing this effect. I hope that this will be proven beyond all doubt

in the near future but so far it seems to be holding up.

Many test results on Ron’s website are quite spectacular in the order from 20% to even 80% better.

All up, quite an amazing innovation. I might add that the carbie mod is much more involved than the

fuel injection mod.

Well done Ron. More reports to come.

  1. I am happy to hear of more Gadgetmen joining the network, and with such positive results!

    There are a few more considerations on your mileage tests, gentlemen.
    1) there is a SUBSTANTIAL gain for highway mileage.
    2) Acceleration has EXTREME consequences and is to be kept minimal for maximum gains.
    3) ALL VACUUM PORTS, LINES and DIAPHRAGMS should be checked for integrity, then RE-CHECKED. (This one factor has caused results to TRIPLE on affected vehicles.

    Please remember to post all results on for the entire network (and the free world!) to see. This INCLUDES any negatives!

    My name is Ron Hatton.
    I am responsible.

  2. It’s amazing what The Gadgetman Groove is doing to lower emissions, as well!

    Seeing what the teams are doing all over the world is giving me great encouragement to continue as I have: Ignore the naysayers (they never are willing to put anything to their own tests any way) and focus on those who ARE willing!

    The results are clearly in favor.

    Almost every vehicle experienced tremendous decreases in emissions along with power and mileage gains.

    Of course, there’s always the exception to the rule, but overall, more than 85% of our modifications are reporting very respectable gains in mileage.

    Please check out the latest reports on You Tube at and see all the emissions reports.

    You are sure to be pleased.
