That remind me of vuel evaporator carburetor that utilize exhaust heat. Nobody can use it because they add additive in the fuel to make it jam the carburetor if you evaporate it....

Very true, the fuel here forms a varnish like substance after it evaporates, blocking jets and floats in the carb. Having said that so does the local gin, vodka and rhum, very worrying.
