When someone asks what the contraption is I'll say its a supercharged windscreen washer unit

Hi Forum readers .On the subject of hybrids ,I was always of the opinion that cars(of that period at least) ran better when the weather was wet, the engine was drawing in moist air and the water molecules were turned into steam at the moment of combustion . Perhaps a petrol steam hybrid could work.
Food for thought from David
More likely to be due to the fact that (in the UK at least) when it's wet, the weather tends to be slightly colder, so the air is slightly more dense. It's definitely true that you'll find a normally aspirated petrol engine produces a tad more power in winter than in summer.
