Yeah. They should do that before selling people stuff. Their claims are really for the unicorn corral, no? I mean big sales claims contradicting known research but that are nonetheless presented without any new data is just about the definition of a unicorn: a flying uni-antlered albino horse that nobody has ever demonstrated has ever existed in the flesh.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
