A controlled amount of a fluid (steam or water or a solution of water plus additives) is injected into an internal combustion engine to improve combustion, efficiency, and to reduce emissions. The amount of the fluid injected is controlled in response to engine need. The steam is generated by the heat produced by the engine. Combustion gas temperature is used to control the amount of steam produced by varying the fluid flow through one or more fixed or variable orifice control valves. The steam is injected in a piston engine to cool peak temperatures, to...
1. A method for providing improved combustion and reduced emissions in an internal combustion engine, having a combustion zone and an exhaust, comprising at speeds above idle feeding both fuel and controlled amounts of an aqueous fluid into said combustion zone, and in addition feeding controlled amounts of hot exhaust gas and air into said combustion zone, and in response to engine needs, increasing the weight ratio of said aqueous fluid to said fuel during engine acceleration. 2. A method for providing improved combustion and reduced emissions i...
