I was amused by it. A Google search gives the impression they're very free with legal action but I'd be pretty surprised if they took that tack.

The whole thing is really just silly. They won't show anyone anything to demonstrate validity and give the excuse of awaiting patents. Huh.. it seems to me I sure have seen lots of products with "Patent Pending," giving as much protection as the actual issuance.

They're really just a soft target though. In a couple of years, should they be mentioned, we'll all say "Doug who?" "HP2 what?"

The amazing thing to me is that CNN swallowed it. I know, I know, CNN... But still, you'd think they'd have shown some tiny amount of journalistic skepticism.

But I apologize for providing a link to their site, if that's where you got it.

It seems that a reporter could go for a ride along to verify the car actually got that kind of mileage. They wouldn't even need to see the engine. Of course, if they didn't check out the vehicle, it would be possible to have a hidden gas tank. *shrug* I just keep wondering how long this guy can string this along before he gets exposed. Will we actually have production cars getting 110mpge, and he will be claiming to have his Mustang getting 500mpge, still with no proof?

Don't feel bad Frank.

I think the guy's next project will be a Ponzi scheme, since his mode appears to be trying to bamboozle gullible people with math.

2 + 2 = 5, for extremely large values of 2.

Maybe that should be 2 + 2 = 5e (an equivalent of 5 based on their own secret patented calculations).
