Ram Implosion Wing Developments
Recent replications claim to confirm effect in which special
aerodynamic shape is alleged to create an air vortex that increases vehicle
mileage and decreases airflow disturbance.

Robert Patterson has invented a wing structure that
resembles ram's horns. He says that when affixed to the top of a vehicle
it has the effect of creating a vortex that not only decreases wind resistance,
but may actually even have a propelling effect, similar to a martial arts
maneuver that utilizes the force of an attacker against him. He says,
"the air is first, intercepted and then redirected and utilized in a
beneficial manner, simultaneously pulling on the craft via vortex implosion and
then pushing on the craft via anti-vortex geometry. The Ram-Implo wing
comprises a vortex-circuit interface with the air."
Claims of increased gas mileage have been gradually trickling in, but the
claims of how the air behaves with a vehicle passing by are even more
fascinating. A vehicle with one of these wings mounted atop has been
observed to not stir up nearly as much dust when going down a dirt road. A
paper bag sitting in the middle of the road is unmoved as the vehicle passes by
at high speeds.
While some of these claims of hugely increased mileage are probably due to
poor measurement technique, and no reports yet bespeak a rigorous testing
protocol, the following compilation does convey an interesting collection of
claims that the Ram Implosion Wing, invented by Robert Patterson, is worth
"Despite the success of most researchers here which
number about twelve that are currently testing the wing have all seen improved
mileage from at least 10-mpg; but most have at least doubled their mileage,
and a few of us have achieved 3-x our normal mileage on a limited basis. To
date I have only seen 3-people that have not yet achieved any extended
mileage, primarily due to lack of texturing on the wing." -- Robert
"Most people think that the wing should be smooth.
WRONG!!! A smooth surface promotes laminar flow which causes the viscosity of
the air to stick to objects moving through it. And in the down stream
condition this viscosity turns into drag because it is stuck to the smooth
surface of the object passing through it." -- Robert Patterson (ref)
"If you use the paint roller as suggested and wet
the fiberglass mat with resin the one time and roll it out you're finished,
and when the resin cures the matted surface will show through the resin, the
matted surface works perfect for diffusion purposes, and should for all
practical purposes double your current mileage." -- Robert Patterson (ref)

Rob Taffol has doubled his fuel mileage on his Blazer he went from 12-mpg to
24-mpg average over a 300-mile test run. He could have done better if he was
able to drive above 65-mph his average was 60- mph and he even claimed higher
mileage but we did an average just to tone it down a bit. Photos to follow.
Bruce Meland Sees Increased Mileage in 96 Toyota

I put the wing on the backend of my aerodynamic fiberglass canopy and flew to
the Farm in Silverton. By that I mean I put regular gas in it raced up Suttle
Lake hill at 80mph and spared no mph going down the other side of the Cascades
Mountains. 150 plus miles and used 5 gals of regular gas. which is a tad bit
over 30 mpg. I have never got over 30 mph the way I drive. Average about 24 mpg
usually in my style driving. I could feel less resistance to air and smoother
ride. I suspect it will show better results on a SUV. I have a cousin who has a
Ford Excursion which we shall try in a week or so on a trip to Klamath Falls. I
will find someone shortly here or some relatives in Portland that will try it
out on shorter and longer trips with big SUV's. It apparently works much better
at 60 plus mph. I was impressed and expected about this 20% plus efficiency on
my lighter aerodynamic 96 Toyota Tacoma with streamline fiberglass canopy. More
tests will follow on my Tacoma as well as SUV's.

Electrifying Times is testing Rob Patterson's Ram Implosion Wing on various
Vehicles including large SUV's such as the Ford Excursion and Explorer, Chevy
Blazer ect, and will publish the results in the next issue of Electrifying
Times to be out soon.
Glen King doesn't see much change in city driving

Subject: Not too much change mostly city driving though
I am sending pictures to the group of my Ram wing. I have been
testing it the last few days but as of yet I have not seen any major
increases in MPG. Most of my driving has been around town driving. I
have been keeping track of how often I travel faster than 50mph and
recording that time. But so far I have not done a long test run at
high speeds. It seems this is where most people are getting their
improvements. I have used just over 1/4 tank and I will keep you
posted as to the results once the tank is empty.

Yes, you will have to drive the test vehicle at a minimum of 60-to-65 mph
to achieve any [measurable] results.

After looking at your photos I see that your wing-lets will have to be
reversed and you will need to add some texture to the surface of the wing.
Lincoln Town car went to 56 mpg; more

One of our research associates installed the wing on
the roof of his Lincoln Town car using a luggage rack, which allowed the wing to
hang over the rear window by 6-inches. He claimed his mileage improved from
17-mpg to 56-mpg.
Sal G. has an original 36-inch prototype (I believe)
the roof his Volvo that enhances his mileage from 20-mpg to 30-mpg.
Jim Reeves, installed a half-baked duct-tape skin over foam wing
near the front of his midsize van and gained an 8-mpg improvement
over the normal 20-mpg
Dust Trail Diminished

I finished in time to take the rig for a test run and noticed several new
phenomena. First, we live 3-miles in on a dirt road and using the smaller
wing-lets there is usually a large cloud of dust that fly's up into to the air
at 45-mph. Well not today! Don't get me wrong there was some dust but only
about 1/3-rd the usual amount and a much finer grain of particulate. Once I
reached the black-top road I noticed a much smother ride and faster acceleration
with far less gas peddle depression.
On the way home I met up with my step-dad driving my mom's midsize Ford
Topaz. He arrived at the dirt road turn off before I did and I noticed a large
cloud of dust trailing behind my mom's car, but virtually no dust behind my van
despite the fact that my dad had a huge cloud of dust trailing behind him and I
was right behind him.
Secondly, and no matter what read-out the digital flow tachometer has
calculated per the distance driven the analog meter always shows a loss in
efficiencies of about 20% or more when I lower my speed to 55-mph, not this
time! Today the flow-tachometer zeroed at 45-mph and showed no loss of
That means that I have picked up some mileage between 55 and 45-mph that was
not previously present using the larger wing-let design.

Very interesting to hear about your trailing dust cloud observations. That
means some similar observations should be valid on winter roads with snow
clouds whirling behind vehicles.

Note this wing was built using a smooth
surface texture, and as would be predicted by Patterson, produced no
net gain in fuel efficiencies, due to the lack of vacuum energy
production. The wing is currently undergoing revisions to
add diffusion cell texture to the surface of the wing.

If a conventional airfoil functioned as envisioned then how come every
street racer complains that his/her time to the finish line takes longer and
their fuel consumption increased when they added one of these glorified
"go fast plastic wings" to their street rod?
The conventional airfoil was designed to push a jet-stream of air out form
under it and behind the vehicle in an attempt to brake up eddy currents that
trail behind the car as it moves through the air. The problem with this
concept is the fact that air has a sticky and elastic viscosity that adheres
to the smooth surface of any vehicle and sheds off of the rear of the vehicle
in the form of a rotating vortex. The suction head of this vortex is the
source of the drag and the vacuum energy that is utilized by race car drivers
when they draft off of the displacement created by the lead car.
In most cases the "go fast plastic wings" that I have seen are
installed on the cars backwards! That is the leading edge of these wings
is the smallest and the trailing edge is the largest. Ironically with
the wing positioned in this canard (backward) fashion it cannot do anything
but cause drag in the form of an antagonistic vortex. Likewise all
vehicles that present a small leading profile in contrast with a larger
trailing rear-section are 180-degrees out of phase with natures cyclonic
No animal or egg is birthed with the small end first, its always the
largest end first otherwise its breach, this is your basic building block,
violate this most basic rule of Bio-engineering and everything you do will be
moving antagonistically backwards (out of phase) through the environmental
