HF Fuelmaster Gas Saver

Not sure if this should be here or in the humor area:

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=36098

Quote from the specs:

* Provides 11.6% average highway fuel savings as tested by an EPA accepted laboratory
* Prevents build-up of dirt in engine injectors

Enjoy.

Just think how much improvement you'd have if you strapped on 3 or 4 of them. Combine these with one of the "Hurricane" gizmos that go in the air intake and your gas tank will actully fill up as you drive!

Re: HF Fuelmaster Gas Saver

Too bad it only works on four cylinder cars and trucks, I was going to get one for the LT and the Lincoln.

When you not using on the fuel line for added gas mileage you could strap it around your wrist and it will improve your golf game.

And it'll also remove alternator whine from your radio and trip those troublesome traffic lights.

"Provides 11.6% average highway fuel savings as tested by an EPA accepted laboratory."

Note that it doesn't specify which "EPA accepted laboratory." Hmm.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: HF Fuelmaster Gas Saver

Absolutely AMAZING!

It "breaks up clusters of hydrocarbon for more complete burning."

You know darned well if it came from China (and I have NEVER seen anything in Harbor Freight that hasn't) its got to be freakin' awesome.

Side story: I bought a HF "solar powered battery charger" to keep up the charge on several truck batterries I have parked but not used that often. While the charger worked fine the red plastic frame MELTED while sitting on the dash - and this was 4 months ago when it was COLD in Tucson!

They did give me my money back without a receipt. When will I EVER learn to stay out of that stoopid store!

Ya know if you throw that on the inside of you tire, it would dynamically balance it and save you fuel that way.

Just Go

I bet if you strapped one to Al Gore's head, it might possibly cause clear and rational thought.

I was in China a few weeks ago and they have a similar device that they have integrated into a bottle. You put in "normal" drinking water, that is then transformed into a super liquid which heals your body...

Sez - "for use on four cylinder cars and trucks"!!

So, you buy two of 'em if you have an 8 cylinder??

We used to (maybe they still do, dunno) have a similar aftermarket gimmick in the swimming pool industry. Strap a magnet to your pool pipes and gain an unheard of cleaning/purifying advantage by reversing the polarity of the water molecules. Really? Said you could use less chlorine and get better water clarity and purity. If I'da kept all the ones I removed from folk's pool systems, I could bring traffic to a standstill out front of the casa!!!

Re: HF Fuelmaster Gas Saver

Devices such as this are mandatory in a few other countries. I was involved with fuel devices in the 90's and talked with quite a few inventors, one happened to sell a device similar to this. His partner was threatened by the powers that run the oil markets, and quit. This guy went on to sell his product, outside the US. It worked quite well on smaller cars, and those without the auto adjust computer systems.

I had a device that worked very well on older vehicles with carbs (FI was much more difficult to install and too risky). You spliced the metal fuel lines and replaced with non conductive rubber. It atomized the fuel, 0% emissions, 10-15% increase in mileage - and that was mostly on 8 cyls. Had all kinds of gvt'/oil compnay paid "professional BS artists" visiting my home..sent me to a number of test facilities for installs, EPA sites - at my expense. It worked extremely well. So well in fact, they did not want to return or pay for the units. The gvt' used it to obtain a patent for fuel atomization - I got nothing. A big and expensive lesson.

What amazed me was, they could document in five minutes, what took me months to test on the road. The tech working at the refinery test center was astounded at the results.

Anyone that has any device that can potentially enhance MPG, and your name is known to those of interest, in less than a few hours. Everywhere I went, they knew all about the device, before I said one word.

The device I had, was tested on two engines for Dale Earnhardt. Done in the rear of a NAPA dealer, private engine testing facility in PA., who would have guessed?

My brother still has one on a 71 Ford truck I sold him, a monster V8 - which still passes emissions last I heard.

Of the group of people I knew of that were part of trying to distribute this product, well over $500k was lost in the venture. There are many fuel savings products that have been withheld from the public.

My neighbor's son's company recently created some high tech intake manifold. Huge increase in MPG - you are not going to hear about or see it any time soon. It no longer exists.

I worked for a garage in the 70's. The owner had someone bring in a new car with a complaint the gas gage was not working. Ran hundreds of miles and the gage was not going down. They called the manufacturer. The car was replaced the next day! It was an experimental high mpg car, which got out by mistake. Believe it, or not.

LOL! There must of been HUNDREDS of those cars that got out, because I've heard that same story from hundreds of different people in my career!

With the price of fuel, all these old 'snake oil' remedies will start coming out of the woodwork again, same way they did back in the oil crisis days. None of them do what they claim to do.

If you want better MPG, do the following:

SLOW DOWN!
Keep your tires inflated properly.
Get the extra 'junk in your trunk' out (car trunk, not your butt).
Remove the bicycle / kayak / ski rack from the roof of your car.
Maintain your vehicle.
Did I mention SLOW DOWN?
Oh, yeah, dump the SUV and get a more efficient vehicle - like a motorcycle!
