That pissed me off so much I emailed the reporter and chewed her a new one.

What I said:

Hi Laura-

You really need to have a technical advisor to check with before airing crap like this.

It's a total scam, the numbers are whacked, everyone that believes in this thing is being had.

Put a gallon of fuel- E85, regular, it makes little difference- in Doug's car and it will go little more than 20 miles- just like a stock Mustang.

Since he plays so loose and free with numbers, there is no reason to believe that quantity of orders and that amount of potential jobs either.

Did you know he was booted out of the "X-Prize" competition? Yeah, way to feature it on that clip...

You really ought to do a follow-up story that broadcasts the TRUTH... if you and your team have any integrity.
