Only test that matters to me is the real world testing I do every day on the way to and from work. If it can be useful (and cheap) in my daily drive, I'll try it!

If this guy has done something that in the real world we drive in helps his econobox get 88 mpg and it doesn't kill it, let's see it! I'll be the first to apologize for my earlier comments should he actually be able to produce a "gadget"!
Next thing you see, I'll be posting 88 mpg results in the Widow . . . .

"The fill-up is a bit of a red flag: it's a very small amount."

For the record, Gaud, short fills won't win you much respect; Frank keeps his "Sport Coupe" Tempo on the record as an example of exactly why short fills are so unreliable.

Still, I'm looking forward to seeing how this shakes out.

Okay, I've got "Speed disks", and 1/2 of my grill blocked off, but the "REAL DEAL", is: I've got: K&N air filter, PULSTAR, spark plugs, and something called a "Platinum Gas Saver"> THAT DOES: INDEED WORKS: for some 9MPG HWY, and something called: "Fuel VAPORIZER" that "INDEED WORKS", but , it's something of a *****, to get working, it's not something that just "connects" and does it's job. You have to have it connected, and drive/fill/check/ adjust,,,,, and drive, fill/check/adjust/check, etc. it takes some time, but : INDEED: THESE THINGS WORK! I "WILL" have a '94-3-5, that :WILL GET: "100MPG: Highway,,,,,, I'm SURE OF THIS,,,, give me a month.. I'm sure, It'll be getting atleast: 62mpg CITY: I'm sure! Give me some time to test, and check, but I'm SURE: OF THIS! And, This "IS" my "DAILY-DRIVER"! I've also got a '91 Chevy Blazer, full-sized, 4wd , with a 350 V-8, 150K miles, that gets: 11-14 city, I'm getting this "gadget" installed on it, and will be expecting: About 17 City, and 27 Highway.......... Please, give me some time, and I'll get back with you all! When My Geo gets connected, I'll be taking a trip up to N.Calif. and I'll get there, on LESS than a TANK! Just wait!

Gaud29 You need to test the gadgets like you are trying to disprove them , not prove them.
Many people attribute real mpg gains to their gadgets when it is really their unconscious mind driven smarter with the favored gadget in place.

You need to be a skeptical critic to test thoroughly and not behave like a fan or father of the device, it would fudge the results , be careful testing and test carefully.

welcome to the site ! check out the unicorn coral for the scam items that are designed to make money , not save money or fuel.

Wink the 88mpg..........

Well, of course have your vehicle "free" of problems, no engine check lights, turned up, aligned, etc. and then get yourself a "Platinum Gas Saver", hook it up, and let it do it's thing... then, purchase a "Fuel Atomizer", or maybe now they're called "Fuel Vaporizer", and hook it up,,,, and drive, and get it "dialed in",,,,, and there you go........!!!!!!!!!! You might want to also buy and put in a "K & N air filter", also some "Pulstar" spark plugs,,,,,,either way you're off to an AWSOME Start!!!!
