This is the one that got me...
We ran a 318 V-8 Chrysler engine on a brand new state of the art dynamometer (the same testing equipment that Detroit uses) at 3,000 rpms under a 50% load for an hour. This test condition approximated an 8 cylinder van with a 318 engine, traveling up a 30 degree incline for one hour, at 65 miles per hour. Before the PICC modification, the engine used 18 pounds of fuel. At an average weight of 6.15 pounds per gallon for gasoline, that would equal 2.93 gallons of fuel. Converting that into miles per gallon, it got around 22 mpg.
First off, when did a 318 equipped VAN ever get 22 mpg?
Secondly, if they have state of the art equipment, why are they measuring consumption in "pounds of fuel"? What is this an, aircraft accessory? Got "around" 22 mpg?
I'd have to see this first hand to believe it. If this actually works as stated, wouldn't they have showcased it at the last SEMA show?
This is directly from the SEMA homepage....
The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world (PLEASE NOTE: THE SEMA SHOW IS NOT OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC). It draws the industry’s brightest minds and hottest products to one place, the Las Vegas Convention Center. As part of the AAIW, the SEMA Show attracts more than 100,000 industry leaders from over 100 countries for unlimited profit opportunities in the automotive, truck and SUV, marine and RV markets. SEMA Show 2006 drew over 50,000 domestic and international buyers through two million square feet of exhibits. The displays are segmented into 11 sections, and a New Products Showcase features more than 2,000 newly introduced parts, tools and components. In addition, the SEMA Show provides attendees with educational seminars, product demonstrations, special events, networking opportunities and more…
I guess with a product such as this, you don't want the attention of 100,000 industry leaders, or the 50,000 domestic and int'l buyers.
Save your money and don't buy into this bull. For the 4-5K you'll have in this thing, you could buy a car that would double your mileage and keep miles off the Jeep.
