Fuel Crisis is it Real ?

By: Bud Weiss

But with all the crooks in the world today I have change my opinion about this subject. You may ask why bother writing about this subject at all. One reason is we should be trying to save fuel by any means possible, like trying to limit the amount of times you drive your car which can be done by planning your trips. You can go to work with other employees or take busses. Another suggestion is to try using a fuel saver additive in your car. But let's get back to the reasons I believe it is real.
My first reason is technology: When I was younger the energy companies promised if the American people would allow them to build Nuclear power plants in the U.S.A that after the return on their investment on building these plants was realized, energy in the future would be dirt cheap.( Sorry youngsters that we bought that lie). Looks to me like my electric bill keeps climbing ever year not get any cheaper.
Also in the early sixties a friend of mine came up with this idea for saving fuel by eliminating oil changes in automobiles. He invented an oil filter system that was accessible from under the hood of the car instead of under the engine. This allowed all the oil to run back down into the engine from the filter because of gravity. You would unscrew the top part of the filter housing and add a roll of toilet paper and put the top back on. After installing the new roll of toilet paper you would then add one quart of oil. He would do this every 20 thousand miles and his oil was always clean on his dip stick. He told me dirt brakes down the oil and if you can keep it clean it would last much longer. No companies were interested in this invention because it would cut oil consumption. No one worried about saving furl or fuel savers in those days.

By the way look under the hood of the new BMW's today and see they used part of his idea.
Also in the sixties there was a gentleman that invented a carburetor that got 100 miles to the gallon on those big heavy old clunkers. Here drove his car from Chicago to California on one take of gas. It was advertized on television and it was big news. It was short lived because a few weeks later it was reported that he had other fuel tanks on the car. I can tell you that is a lie but the American people seem to buy those kind of lies. The man at his own expense put a copy of the blue print of his carburetor in the public libraries so if anyone wanted proof for themselves they could build one. Guess no one did ? By the way the very next year after his new invention the auto companies went to fuel ejection and replaced carburetors, and if you know anything about engines and saving fuel that was not the way to go.

My second reason is where is our fuel going?
Also back in the sixties they built the Alaskan oil line in the event that we needed more oil then we could produce for the American People. Where is all that oil going that is flowing from those pipes? I can tell you it is not going to the American people or oil would not be that expensive. The oil is shipped somewhere else, most likely to Japan, and we have to import our oil so we have to pay higher prices for it. Also why do we have all our own oil wells capped? Why won't they let us drill off our own costs when they plan on letting China drill off Florida coast? Another big question is why can't we burn coal? I live here in Virginia and there is a train that goes past our house 24 times a day with over 100 cars of coal on it. It is being shipped somewhere over seas where some other country can save fuel oil by using our natural resources but we here in America we cannot burn our own coal. Oh by the way they bought another one hundred shinny new cars and have filled them up with coal and now are running two trains every hour.
We also have over 12 million illegal immigrants in this country using million of gallons of our fuel every single day. A good way to save fuel is by sending these people back to their own country. I think this is one good fuel saver idea, because they are here not to become Americans but to rob and pillage and take over our country and turn it into theirs. If you think this statement is not true, then take a look at Miami and some other states that have been taken over by them. Or just dial you phone company and they ask you to push some kind of number to hear their message in English.
The main reason I believe that contributes to our shortage is the lack of refineries in this country. We use to have over a hundred refineries in this country but have downsized to about 12. Sounds a little weird to me that if there is more of a demand for fuel today like they claim we should have more not less refineries.
If they would come out with the cars that run on hydrogen, build a few more nuclear power plants and come out with all the other inventions they have suppress over the years it would end all these problems. I am sure they will someday after they have everything you own in their back pockets but until then we can only hope. So until then become a real fuel saver by saving fuel any way you can.
