Yup - it was a Duryea

It's fuel system had no throttle ability, but it DID have an extremely weird way to mix gasoline with air to make a burnable mixture. And it was NOT a surface-evap system with air flowing over the liquid fuel reservoir

wretched ratchet While googling some of this I saw one of these that had been sold by an Estate Sale for almost $97,000. Great conversation piece for sure.

Dave57210 Ummmm.... I guess the answer is "sorta kinda". According to the diagrams and patents for a "surface carb" - then no.

Dave57210 Not a steam car. It was a production vehicle, but what did it use INSTEAD OF A CARBURETOR?
