the exhaust on the (deleted) all went through a recovery system with a series of reduction chambers filled with diatomaceous earth which then took the CO2 and H2O and recombined it into usable hydrocarbons with an octane rating of roughly 104. This was then piped back into the fuel tank which reused it making it one of the most efficient machines ever known to tillers of the soil.
In addition, impurities in the original fuel, such as trace metals, were also separated out by means of a platinum catalytic converter and stored in a #10 coffee can. When a can became filled, an idiot light on the dashboard would light up so that the operator could put on a fresh can. During plowing or threshing season, this would have to be done several times a day. I heard of one farmer with several thousand acres who specialized in fuels heavy with molybdenum. In October of each year, he would sell the solid molybdenum to the government and make enough to buy a new tractor.
But then again, I may have it all wrong.
Like it always.
