Did you know that by simply waxing your car you can gain about 2 miles per gallon more. Is it just me or is it true, what do you think

Works if you have a foot of dirt on your car before you wash it.

Waxing has no effect on MPG increase.

But if you envelope your vehicle in a tachyon field you can increase your MPG by an infinite amount.

That is why I use Tachyon Max Wax at least once a year.

*Tests show after 365 car washes Tachyon Max Wax still provides infinite MPG increase.

Not so much anymore. It made no measurable difference in gas mileage.

a long time ago, I sent NASCAR a question about the speed of the cars with fresh wax on the paint, they said it made no difference. So, apparently gas mileage is the same. But, I could swear when I waxed my custom van, with a v8 engine, with clean paint and wax it felt like it got better mileage. Must have been the placebo effect.
