Fuel Saver's, Ch 9

See current affair tonight?

They tested so called fuel saving products.One, two was a magnet on fuel line.What amased me was the fuel and epa went up.Yea right. I think that had something to do with the opperator. They were tested on AU six at Ford.I cannot see how magnets can make it worse, or better for that matter?

A different muffler was tested too, but didn't show what or how it was fitted. Not sure if the original was taken out.?

Then there was this vortex thingy that fits in inlet, it did make "very" small, better fuel millage and epa test. All done on a dyno..
If you ask me all the parts are too expensive anyway!!

It's amazing how big an issue this must have been at the time, in that so many of us can still remember Brock and his Polariser today. Think of how many other BS systems that have been and gone over the years with little fanfair or memory of them, but we all can still remember that damn Polariser. :CraZ:

Poor Brockie, he'll never live that one down...
