I will be curious to see what you think of it. Sounds like BS, but I hope it works.

I'm not sure how this differs from any of the other gimmicks out there...almost sounds/looks like its just some type of fuel filter?

I have a new found obsession with running through water/mud puddles...

reminds me of the magnets that "straighten" out the molecules in gas making it burn more efficiently that you can buy on Ebay, lol.

One of the shows on spike did a test with it. At the price it would take a very long time to even make a dent in fuel savings.

Either Petersen's or JP (can't remember which) tested this thing and they said that it works as advertised. Note the word "advertised". Since the manufacturer advertises in the magazine, the results may be skewed, then again, maybe not. Keep us posted.

Fuel vaporization is the only proven method that would give real results. It came out in the 30's and it worked but the patents were sold off and cannot be used in commerical process. Look up a guy name Charles Pogue. Chemist teacher clued me into this invention allong time ago and explained how this is actually the best and most efficient way to make less gas do more. Unfrtunately Economy of Oil drives the world economy now so it will be hard to replace without time being involved to create a replacement solution.

I Googled Charles Pogue and the first link that comes up is one called the 100 mpg carburetor myth and explains why Pogue's theories would not work. I never heard of any of this until now, but it's an interesting read. http://www.mikebrownsolutions.com/fish3.htm

Hmmm, there seems to be very little info on how it actually works. Fuel atoms can be catalytically hydrolyzed, but not by anything that Fitch claim is in their product.

Their web site is 99% hype with little scientific fact to back up their claims. The product seems to do everything, even increasing the octane, which by itself would not do anything for fuel economy or performance anyway.

Install it, change your driving habits ever so slightly, and it will improve mpg. Well, actually the slight change in driving habits will.

I haven't figured it out either and I'm not sure what is the magic behind it. There is allot of science behind it and what I don't remember is the flow of how it worked but I recall it is a multi chamber process that atomized the fuel and turned it into pressurized gas that burned with a fraction of that actual gas. I've looked into it from time to time but have never been able to figure it out. I do know that it would be near impossible with fuel injected computer controllled vehicle

Wife is in Virgina and she just reported the 3.89 on Sunday. We are at 3.40 and climbing steadily. Diesel is like 4.40 the few places that I saw it. My trucking buddy said they are way off on the trucking scheduling and are slowing down way to fast at work because no one is ordering materials due to the surcharges.

What is it today? Gas just jumped here (same area as OP) so that $3.39 is now $3.44 at the cheapest station on my side of Atlanta. Hmm we are in for an interesting summer. I here the truckers on the CB in the morning talking and things are not looking pretty on their end.

well we went from the posted $3.44 yesterday to $3.49 today. Hopefully my girlfriend gets the job she has a second interview for friday that is a 1/4 mile from my work. That way we can move on this side of the city and my round trip commute will go from 50 miles to under 10 miles (as low as 2 miles depending on apartments)

If you get the Outdoor channel on Mondays there is On the Rocks TV and Four Wheeler TV. Four Wheeler is in my neck of the woods for the next couple of shows, Clayton, OK. I work with one of the drivers daughter in law.

I try to tape the extreme 4x4 so I don't miss it. Very informative on customizing off road vehicles. They had an episode with the jk and I missed it. I'm taping hoping for a repeat to come.

My feeling is this is a gimmick. With the massive restrictions OEM face and huge push from the fed gov to increase mpg, you would think this would be standard equipment on all vehicles. Keep us posted.
