Gas Saving Scams
There have been hundreds of unique ways and products to help us save on fuel, here are some of the most recent gas saving devices. Most of the tested devices have no benefits, but read and see which ones over the years actually can help you save on gas.
1. Inset Aftermarket Retrofit Device, 1999: This gas saving device has the fuel burn completely, as the fuel passes along the stabilizer the molecules align to burn in the combustion chamber. The device is supposed to save gas and help MPG. Tests were done and the results said there were no positive or negative effects on the exhaust emission or fuel economy.
2. PetroMoly HP Motor Oil, 1999: This high performance oil is a replacement for motor oil which increases fuel economy by 10% and reduces toxic emissions by 60%, it's an emission reduction device. EPA and independent laboratories tested this product and found it did improve, but was so minor it had no significance to improving MPG.
3. Vitalizer III, 1999: This fuel saving device is a copper tube consisting of various metals, which is placed in the fuel line. This causes an interruption in the flow pattern of the fuel, supposedly forming an electrostatic colloidal matrix. EPA tested this product and found increase in fuel economy was less than 1.0% in all six observations, making no significant difference in fuel economy or exhaust emissions and considered a scam.
4. Super FUELMAX, 2005: This interesting and unique device is a set of two magnets made with a neodymium blending and can be installed into cars, trucks, or boats. It is put around the fuel-delivery pipe to the engine and said to increase fuel mileage up to 27%. However it was tested by EPA and was found to have no effect on fuel economy or exhaust emission performance.
5. DreamTech, 2006: A fuel saver for cars and trucks, is said to improve fuel-efficiency, generating power, and reduce emission by 26.1%. This device cleans the engine and increases engine performance. It helps burn more of the exhaust that is considered to be unburned pollution. The device must be installed and EPA tests showed that there were no significant change in MPG.
6. Fuel Doctor FD-47, 2011: This fuel efficiency booster device is designed to enhance your car's MPG by simply plugging it into the cigarette lighter socket. It works by conditioning the power flow throughout the cars electrical system. The impact can vary, depending on the car and its condition. Tests by well-known automotive and engineering authorities such as Intertek, Ledico-Bosch, and Kett Engineering all showed the device works and can increase your MPG by 15-20%.
