I hope it will be made for old cars like mine. I think they are mostly targeting OEMs. If an engine is losing 13% to a traditional belt and these are 10% better, then that's 13%*10% => 1.3% improvement. The implication is that if one of us was getting 50 MPG at 35 MPH, we could get 50.65 MPG at the same speed.
