18% increase! (Fuel Doctor FD-47 busted by Consumer Reports)


Is this for real?
It's in the new Hammacher Schlemmer catalogue.18% increase is substantial if the claim is valid.

Imagine plugging two or THREE of these babies in! That'll convert other cars' emissions into fuel and fill up your tank!

I just like to run up and down the hall screaming "Hammacher Schlemmer!" "Hammacher Schlemmer!" "Hammacher Schlemmer!" ... with scissors, too.

kitchenware

Lorena Bobbitt has acquired the home addresses for the respectable owners of this fine manufacturer and is on the way with her best kitchenware.
She's been improving her throwing arm,and promises that no one will ever recover the objects of her consumer protection act.
On an up note,the Vienna Boy's choir is excited about the new sopranos in the making.

Anyone who gets this is defiantly a sucker

The only MPG you would get from this is you having a lighter foot trying to save gas... You can buy a 50 cent sticker and put it over the lighter hole and possibly get the same effect haha
