I love the direction of the "high speed airflow" after the "thrusting cyclone air"....




What a scream.

I will bet that the little thing REDUCES power output. It's like giving arsenic for the placebo effect and charging for penicillin.

It's actually even better, it says "Save 28%". With four of them you never have to put gas in your car again! You do however have to stop and let gas out of your car every 10 months or so.

No the 28% does not add for each one its a curve when adding them.

If you get 20mpg and add one you would get 25.6mpg and from there:
2x 32.77mpg
3x 41.94mpg
4x 53.67mpg
5x 68.71mpg

I think I will get myself 10 of them to go from an avg 27mpg to 318mpg , that's right suck it hybrids.

Oooh - do you think BP, Shell, Mobil etc. will be forced into a "feed in gas price" ? If so we are onto a bonanza. Oh, hang on. Everyone keep quiet otherwise it won't be a secret any more.

So

Shhh.

This time next year we will be millionaires I tell ye.

I wonder if you could run an alternator off that. It seems to spin round pretty fast.

Ya know, I think we could!!! And then just hook that up to a motor to drive the wheels. All that air just goes to waste inside the engine anyway! I bet it would sound really cool too.
