This has quickly become my favorite blog on the site. Keep up the great work, Trish!

For some reason this story chaps my hide. As I recall Mack Massey knew Mr. Ogle, and maybe he could step up and add something...

i have been working on avapor system and now have it running and getting ready to change a few things to make it road ready tom ogle had opened up a hornets nest and its time to open it up again when a car has no co or hydro coming out of the exhaust that means the air will be cleaning up

Tom

There is a man working on this same theory in California, and plans to market it to the public when he gets it perfected. He does need some financial help as progress has slowed him. Anyone that can forward help his way would most likely be appreciated.

Rob Robason

Something in this article doesn't jive: The publication date is given as May 1, 1977, but describes Ogle's test car as a 1979 Ford Galaxy. Given my recollection of the time, I think the publication date must have be 1979.

Rob Robason,

The publication date is correct. The typo was in the original article. The Oglemobile was a 1970 Ford Galaxy.

Thank you for pointing out the error.

Anyone with more details and information regarding Tom Ogle, please contact me via email. This is my uncle and I don't know much about him. amogoddess@gmail.com

Thank you,

First, thank you Trish for the information. It does seem very, very odd that the past years with extremely high gasoline prices that this seemingly viable invention can alleviate has not come forth. Is it possible some people in high position in industry or even in government are keeping the lid on this invention to maintain the economy in status quo? Is there anyone out there, engineer or otherwise, that has followed up on this very necessary invention? Is there any information on that Advanced Fuel Systems company or on the actual notes on the system?

Ken Smith

Hey folks. I have been researching Ogle for some time. I just found this blog and hope to chat more about him and the invention. There are many inventions in our automotive history. The patents reflect that. This one should have gone to the top. Or maybe I should say it did. There is one thing I have not seen anyone anywhere ask about. That is "where is the car"? I would bet it is locked up somewhere out of publics eye. I am open to talk to anyone to keep Ogle's name alive. Ken

With only two gallons of gasoline in the tank, Ogle offered strong evidence that the tangle of red hoses and tubes racing between the back of the 5,000 pound car and the engine performed as billed: delivering over 100 miles to the gallon while averaging close to 60 miles per hour.

Do you remember what I told you about Tom Ogle in El Paso in the early
1970's? He was the one who invented an automobile engine that got more than
100 miles to the gallon. He was testing the vehicle outside the El Paso city
limits on those deserted straight highways in the desert. His partner, James
Pack, was brought to the emergency room at Beaumont Army Medical Center
where I was working at the time, because a car had "dropped on him" in his
mechanic's gargage. People were calling the test vehicle the "Oglemobile"
and then suddenly, young Tom Ogle was found dead.

I am fascinated by your stories. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. There's much more to be gained. It is the old what goes around comes around routine.

The lawyer represents Ogle in a suit filed against Strayer in June, stating that he was forced to sign away 22 percent of his royalties to his gas-saving vaporized fuel system he invented.

There was a special on tv the other day, it said he was murdered by somebody in the desert? The oil companies didn't want a 100 mile per gallon car so he died and his car disappeared! It was called "GASHOLE"!
