a friend a while ago sent me a link to a device you can buy online, they're for sure on ebay, where you can install the system on your car and it will substantially boost your fuel economy...i think the platinum acts as a fuel catalyzer and results in a more complete burn.

has anyone ever looked into this or put one of the systems on and had good or poor results?

thanks,

gil

You have a lot to learn. You need to learn that these worthless devices do not work, they are a scam to get your money.

The only person who makes money on these things is the person who sells it.

As the saying goes: "ya just can't fix stupid".

It may be stupid to confuse ignorance with stupidity. Yes, the platinum fuel enhancer is a scam, but I'd be surprised if KANSASGUNMAN or anyone else here hasn't been taken to the cleaners once or twice in their lives. And 99% of us will learn from those experiences.

As long as there's fools there will be shysters and in the end fools pretty much deserve what they get...sometimes the best lessons in life are learned through the wallet.

I would say scam, although i do know that there is a "fuel saver" for semi's that is sold through some of the bigger vendors so I think it is someone legit, however thats also diesel fuel and on a semi getting 7 MPG. The best way I have found to increses mileage is just keeping your car tuned up, clean air filters, fresh oil, and fresh plugs and wires.

cheapmokey:

It might be interesting to know what "Federal Consumer Protection" that "Mikey" is talking about, let alone about the money that Federal Consumer Protection reportedly awarded them. The Federal Trade Commission has a "Bureau of Consumer Protection" but they help prevent fraud, deception, and unfair business practices in the marketplace. They don't award money to businesses, let alone to Israeli businesses.

Two webisites, ne to provide you information on what you're asking about and one generic.

Platinum enhancers

Gas saving products in general...
.
.
And one additional link, regarding a platinum enhancing test (under U.S. government controlled testing) that the company elected to not take place as originally requested by the company
