Fuel fix Pro scam, high fuel prices are bringing out scams

Danger scam

https://www.tacomadailyindex.com/blo...-scam/2454624/

Now instead of a blinky light plugged in the cigarette lighter you can plug it into the OBDII port possibly screwing up your car.

Lol, I didnít think I would see stupid fuel saving scams again but I guess gas is expensive enough to make scam fuel saving devices again

There is not a single piece of useful information in that link! Only repeating "saving fuel" over and over again.

And then that part about turning off the A/C and cracking the windows open may increase fuel consumption i some cars... I would like to see the test results behind that, and which models showed worse FE.

Tons of things are scams, or at least misrepresentations of what the assumed benefits are, and that extends well beyond fuel saving widgets.

There's healing crystals, healing magnets, organic food, local food, branded chemicals (Clorox), branded prescription drugs, knockoff Chinese junk, and politicians.

At least half the things aren't worth the price.
