I was actually like all you guys, but I'm beginning to think this device is actually pretty amazing. I just started using it but my friend has barley had to fill their gas tank in the last month. I can't speak for my self since I'm still trying it out but he swears by it and only has good things to say about it. so who knows? maybe this fuel doctor device is actually legit.

If this thing enables TransWarp drive, we may be onto something!

[edit] pfk, I suspect your friend's increased MPG is due to him now paying close attention to his driving, wanting to see improvement. This is why A-B-A testing is so important. Everyone here is right, gauges and the 100 tips are your best bet. The Ultragauge, an OBDuino, or something else will be a much better investment, as will reading the 100 tips. Knowledge is power.

It emits an energy field that is giving a subliminal message that convinces you it is doing something.....

Or maybe those lights hypnotize you....

Or it is secretly making your odometer read 5% higher....

Or it is a gps tracking device so someone can find you and put some gas in your car at 3am.

Is your friend the inventor of the Fuel Doctor?? If so, than I'd say it is working quite well for its intended purpose. It is intended to use pseudoscience (look it up) to baffle you into thinking that this can work and get you to part with a pretty hefty chunk of your hard earned money for something he pays 50Ę for from China.

I can GUARANTEE, that if you could get the honest truth out of the guy who invented this thing, he'd tell you himself, it is a gimmick to try and make himself rich.

No different than the Intake Tornado, Fuel Line Magnetizers, Water Ionizers for your drinking water, Homeopathic Remedies, LED Light therapy devices, HHO Generators and Snake Oil. All these products do is take your money and give nothing they claim in return.

In all seriousness, you are an unabridged sucker if you bought this thing. Learn from it, and be more skeptical in the future. I have lost prolly $5,000 of my own money over the years being suckered myself on various deals. It happens. If you only spend $50-60 on this thing and endeavor to keep yourself better informed with your purchases and business dealings in the future, and somehow donít get duped again, than the Fuel Doctor is a bargain. Of course it's not the bargain for which it is intended to be. It does have a 30 day money back guarantee, get the refund.

wrong, the tornado thingy at least did something in relation to the engine, even though it doesn't help in any way

Ok, little grammer/english lesson time.....
barley - should be barely no typo there, the "L" is too far from the e and r
my friend - Single, one.......but you the refer to "their tank" their is mulitple friends.

So do they send you these scripts to cut and past???
because the phrase "actually pretty amazing" is very out of place when there is not a statistic associated with it.

just saying, scammerboy.

I'd say these things "work" by making the driver pay more attention to his driving and fuel use.

We've seen before that a more considerate driving style has a lot of potential - even without resorting to hardcore hypermiling techniques.


What's really silly about the FuelDoctor rebuttal of the consumer reports test, is that they blame them for using new(ish) cars .
As if this device will work on the same car in 2 or 3 years time, while it doesn't work on it now.
The electrical system in a car doesn't go berserk after 2 or 3 years .

A waste

Always a scam. My favorite would have to be the "tornado fuel saver"... a peice of metal that sits in your intake claiming to create a "turbine" of air which uses less gas. Awful!

These guys on this forum are right. A ScanGauge will pay for itself as you will see what you are doing wrong. Welcome!
