Has anyone ever used this to get better mpg

Hey long story short, a friend of a friend is partners in this company and are selling a product that is suppost to get you 23% increase in mpg

Just wondering if anyone has used or heard about it. If so i can get them at a decent wholesale price.

heres the link

If not ill buy one and see how it works out since i am very on target with my mpg lol currently getting an average of 18.o mpg in my 95 orvis awd inline 6 with a couple mods




bump

Its a scam, similar to all of these that consumer reports looked at.

http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/c...view/index.htm

Anything that promises more then a 8% increase is probably an outright scam.


Edit: Make that 8% or so, the Greatest that I've ever seen from any single mod though is 2%-5%.

I doubt that anyone on this forum is stupid enough to buy stuff like that which is made only for suckers who have more money than sense..

I'd be interested in how it works for you, it sounds a little too good to be true, (although I'd love to have my ZJ to have similar gas mileage as a Prius)
BTW, if you could get me a good deal on that cute blonde shown on their website pumping gas, I'd like one of those too.

Send your wife/girlfriend over to my place to install it. If it gets me 28% better gas mileage, I'll send her home with payment. If it doesn't, she can be my slave for a year.












Seriously? IF it worked, OEMs would buy it and either install it on new cars, or bury it forever.
Since your buddy is neither rich nor dead... it doesn't work.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

Lol don't you think if any of that crap worked the car companies would already put them in cars with gas prices this high?? Federal standards...demands of the public...they're doing everything scientifically possible to squeeze every last iota of energy out of that refined dinosaur goo...last I checked this crap isn't on any new car I know of.

Save your money!

Save your money! Swap your manifold or something actually proven to improve performance (and by natural effect efficiency and mileage)

EDIT: Sorry for the double post...idk why it did that

You would have a much better result by putting a brick behind your gas pedal. A brick should be free too, but I will sell you one for 3 easy installments of $19.95 plus $7.95 shipping and handling, I will even throw in a couple zip-ties and free instuctions (pics included) for installation.

never feed your engine with random junk additives or install useless stuff... instead, make a basic tune-up (change spark plugs, air filter, clean injectors etc)
and your 18 mpg for 4.0 Grand Cherokee is more than good... usually GC with 4.0 have same MPG as GC with 5.2 V8

Well i a own a 5.9 so its more thirsty then a 5.2 but i can tell ya based on what i've seen of our 4.0 and the 5.2's on this forum... 4.0 gets a good 3-4mpg city/freeway better. Which is a lot on a full tank. Near 80+ miles more driving
