This is what I keep saying. Manufacturers would kill you and hide the body, if necessary, to get their hands on your effective, economical 5% fuel economy boost. It would steal a march on all the other players.

But they aren't killing anyone because those magical solutions are exactly that: magical. As in, fictional. They aren't real, not in the real world. And everyone already knows that the labs, however impressive the results might be there, are not the real world.

The 5% increase probably comes from the non emissions compliant tune.
