I guess saving money on fuel is not enough of an encentive.

I will pay the first two people who try this out will get $50 bucks each. They must post pictures of a competed fuel saver, the diesel vehicle being used and fuel saver resting on the fuel fill nozzle of that vehicle. Posting before and after fuel economy is also required.

The money will be sent preferably through Robinhood, in Bitcoin or other crypto junk. The $50 will be the value of the cryto at the time sent.

This offer will be void if my account gets deleted or two weeks pass after this post.

Well I'm out because I sold my diesel.

I had a twinge of regret as I watched it drive away (I thnk it was the green tinted window glass and alloy wheels).

I'd pay you those $50 back to get a scientific explanation of why this works.

Oh my science! (South Park)

I didn't worry about the science and just tried it. Already saved me more than that 50 bucks in fuel costs, so I am paying it forward.

Supposedly, the guy who created Bitcoin came up with this so I doubt they need the fifty bucks. Then again, they are asking for tips so it is probably someone else.

Satoshi Nakamoto? No way to prove it since no-one knows who that is.
