Fuel Saving Gizmo

Anybody tried this? Is it 'real' or is it one of the ' compression in the can' products. Here is the website:
Fitch Fuel System
At least according to their website, DOE, CARB, etc certified it
Comments?

Re: Fuel Saving Gizmo

I wouldn't put my money on it.

This product prays on the logic that "The catalytic converter works on the output of the engine, why not on the input?"

I would say energy. The only reason the catalytic convert works is heat. lots of it. see, a catalyst enables a chemical reaction.

I have to ask myself, "Self, what reaction are they enabling?"

I think of a catalyst as something that makes a reaction more efficient.

My guess is that the test results are due to filtering or restriction. or letting the catalytic convert warm up more before the second test.

Re: Fuel Saving Gizmo

When it comes to fuel saving gizmos... I always think to myself...that oil companies have billions upon billions of dollars.... if there was a device that actually saved consumers money on gas, it would've been bought out and destroyed long long ago.... just my 2c's.

Re: Fuel Saving Gizmo

[img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I'm thinking about putting three of them in series. If I do that I'll have to stop every fifty miles and DRAIN THE GAS TANK because it will save so much fuel that the tank will run over. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
