This story has come up here before. There are some fishy things about this guys research. First he claims
" A continuous road tests of the Mecedes-Benz 300D for 6
months showed that our device increased the fuel mileage
significantly. On the highway, the device increased the fuel
mileage from 32 miles per gallon (mpg) to 38 mpg. "

I have never met a 300D owner that has gotten close to 32mpg and I know a few. Also the funding for this research is coming from a company that was busted by the FTC for selling fuel line magnets.

I'll give it serious thought when its confirmed by an independent lab or the EPA.
