I always gain a lot of pleasure by going and checking out this HHO device... This sale has been ending since the day I found it! It makes me laugh that they want to pressure you into buying... Oh, by the way, better hurry up and check it out, sale ends at 8pm!!!

Hydrogen and fuel cells - buzzwords for people with no clue how they work to throw around.
Like in the 60+ mods list, if it sounds too good to be true, it is.

The sad part is that they aren't busting them for fraudulent claims of higher fuel economy--they're busting them for the claim of "turning any car into a hybrid".

I love how they say you can apply for a tax credit and provide a link to the tax form. I wonder how many people who bought this junk applied for the tax credit? I wonder what the look on their faces will be when the IRS rakes them over the coals then tells them to bend over?

There is a video on YouTube of a guy that popped one of these into his Bravada, and then went for a drive videotaping the stock, un-modified MPG meter showing 60.1.

No wonder these sell..... If he REALLY wanted to see what he was REALLY getting, he'd fill up and run serious, documented, controlled usage tests over time and he would TRACK exactly what he was using to refill the tank. Videotape THAT and see if it sells.

;-)

Idiots. That and the O2 sensor isn't seeing what it should be (not calibrated or intended for HHO in the lines) and lying outright to the MPG dev.

The O2 sensor isn't used in the calculation of mpg. Mpg is calculated from the amount of fuel injected and the speedometer/odometer
