Porous Element Fuel Vaporizer

Abstract: 

A porous element fuel vaporizer to be used in conjunction with internal combustion engines. The vaporizer, comprising a fuel injector in conjunction with a porous element, wherein during cold operations the porous element heats and vaporizes the fuel exiting the fuel injector. Since during cold operations an engine consumes more fuel to compensate for liquid fuel precipitating inside, an important feature of this combination involves eliminating precipitate during cold starts to reduce fuel consumption and decrease engine emissions.
