What I'm saying in a round-about way is this "guy" on CNN didn't invent $hit, this has been around longer than the automobile, and it has NEVER improved anyone's mileage. So CNN is perpetuating lies (nothing new) by having an extremely short memory, as it was only 3 years ago when fuel prices spiked like now. Every time fuel prices spike, all these charlatans make these ridiculous claims and gullible people lap it up.

It's like diet "pills", no one wants to lose weight through exercise or changing bad habits, and no one wants to change their wasteful driving habits. They want a magic bullet for that gas hog.
I'm not coasting, I'm shifting slowly.
