    That would be great if it works and it sounds like it does. The price tag, $7500,might be a little steep for your average every driver. This might be something that truckers and shipping companies should look into though. Cheaper transportation costs will push retail and grocery prices back down for us consumers too.

      But wait. There is something that can be done afterall. My good friend Angelo is a cop in the Tampa/Clearwater area. Since I kept all of the files from the access logs when I had the power to see them, guess what, I have everyone's IP addresses. Hmm..what can I do w/ those??

            7,500 would be nothing for some trucker going cross country every week.

            For zero pollution you should get a 100% tax break.
            And make them transferable from one car to another so you don't have to get a new one when you trade in.

              Especially if it's someone else's $7500
              And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

                  It can be attached to any kind of internal combustion engine: diesel, gasoline, propane/natural gas.

                      Says it reduces fuel consumption by up to 40%

                      So if we shoot high, let's say that we get 40% more mpg, right?

                      If my car averages 20mpg now, that means it'll shoot up to 28mpg on the high estimate. So...if I drive an average of 15k miles per year, without his machine I spend ~$2100 on gas per year (20mpg/15000 miles = 750 gal/year @ $2.79/gal). With the machine I spend ~$1500(28mpg/15000 miles = 536 gal/year @ $2.79/gal). So....$600/year savings. Not bad. but it would still take me a little under 13 years to recoup my initial investment of $7500. And the article said life expectancy on the machine is 10 years.

                      Sounds nice....but still doesn't make sense for the avg joe just yet.

                        That's why the guy is marketing it to Trucking Companies,etc.; where the math makes sense, PLUS, there are greenhouse Credits that could be worth mucho deniro, in addition to the bottom line for a Corporation.

                        The prototype beign built for automobiles will be quite smaller, and hopefully, so will the pricepoint.

                        Reading other reports on this company, they had to pull their first unit due to reliability.
