	Atomized fuel is very small drops of liquid fuel, not vapor.
Because they are so small they have lots of surface area and will
evaporate into vapors, which can be burned.  The problem is that they 
do not have much time to evaporate.  If they vaporized completely
you wouldn't need a catalytic converter.

	How many gallons of gas are used in the world by S-Class
Mercedes?  Even if it got 200 mpg, I don't think world oil
production would have to change much.

	I am glad you feel comfortable and I hope it lasts for a 
couple of days.  BTW, I'll trade my green golf ball joke for your
Neiman-Marcus cookie recipe.
