Fuel is fed into the burner at the top, water drips into the fire chamber and incomplete combustion takes place, sending carbon monoxide, free hydrogen, and some methane to the engine through a system of filters that cool and cleanse the gas. The device is made by M.&R., Products, Inc., of Brooklyn, New York, and Kalamazoo, Mich.”
