I am sure that you have seen various gadgets being sold that claim to increase your fuel mileage. I won't mention any names, but some of them make rather dubious-sounding claims which have never been verified, yet they remain on the market. Some of them have even been tested by the EPA, and have not fared well. This turns out to be nothing new, as you can see from this test that was run all the way back in 1968. Here are the gadgets in question:

  • THE GT ENERGY CHAMBER
  • THE GAS-O-MISER
  • OCTA-GANE
  • ECON-O-MISER
  • FIRE INJECTORS
  • SOLAR VOLT SUPERCHARGER
  • GANE AIR FLOW NEEDLES
  • GAS SAVER CHAMBER

So, did any of them work? I guess you'll need to read the article, now won't you? But, you can probably guess the answer anyway!
