However, his claim seems to be overall MPG, not the youtube example.

Interesting. I never drove my car at 70 MPH with the hydrogen generator. Maybe I should fire it up again.

EDIT: I take that back, he is using another gizmo, an EFIE-equivalent, an oxygen sensor voltage modifier :

Oxygen Sensor Voltage Boost

I think he's one of us, .

I agree with Carlos there are too many problems with the protocol. Drive 32 miles one way fill up at a different pump. I've seen plenty of gaslogs with short fills that are 5-10 mpg better than normal and that's using the same pump to fill. I imagine any increase in FE came from the EFIE but with the test protocol there is no way to tell if there was any increase at all.
