You'll find all matter of gadgets floating around that promise to improve your mileage and save you money on gas. But, can a magnet really save fuel? Could you run your car on water instead of gas? Will a "tornado" boost your mpg?

You’ll find all matter of gadgets floating around that promise to improve your mileage and save you money on gas.  But, can a magnet really save fuel?  Could you run your car on water instead of gas?  Will a “tornado” boost your mpg?

James Randi, scientific skeptic, is offering $1 million to anyone who can prove their gas saving gadget works. In fact, he’s even sent more than 40 letters to inventors offering to test their claims. Not one accepted his challenge.  Take the Million Dollar Challenge

“…Now that has to make you stop and think… if there’s a million dollar carrot hanging in front of you can you can reach out and take a bite out of it, why wouldn’t you do it?”
-James Randi

Don’t believe Randi?  How about the EPA?  After testing more than a hundred gas saving devices, the Environmental Protection Agency has concluded (surprise, surprise) most don’t do a thing.  Read the EPA’s reports

And as for the conspiracy theory that the oil or car companies don’t want gas-saving devices on the market?  Bogus. On those occassions when amazing technologies have been developed outside of Detroit, car companies were quick to adopt them.  After all, they compete with each other and any MPG advantage they can add to their cars means increased sales.
