New fuel saving gadget hits the market

A new product, the "Fuel Shark" has hit the market to save drivers money at the gas pumps.

Small sized, the Fuel Shark sells for $29.95 and simply plugs into your vehicle's cigarette lighter and works by "stabilizing your car's electrical system" to give a 10% increase in fuel economy.

If anyone buys this product, you might as well have taken your $30 dollars and lit it on fire.

If i buy two and plug it into each plug will it get 20% better fuel economy?

Who comes up with these things and better yet who the heck buys them? Looks like i should recreate that pet rock idea!

What is even scarrier is when I clicked on the web site. It said it was out of stock. How many dumb suckers did they get to buy that POS.

This thing reminds me of the classic HVAC scenario where two people in one room argue over the thermostat. The situation escalates untill a technician installs a fake thermostat (just mounted on the wall, not wired to anything, completely useless), and suddenly both people are happy with the temperature because they both have their own little thermostat.

It's purely psycological. Yet, people are dumb enough to believe it.

Heh fuel shark.

Just send me your $30 I'll put it to good use in the tank of my car. I use your money to fill up my tank thereby saving me money on gas.....amazing how that works.

So much done it would blow your mind.

Lets see, if I put in a rear smokers pack, I would have three plugs. That should get me better mileage than a prius!

Haha, I almost want to buy one just so I can take it apart to examine the "fuel saving" electrical circut inside. AKA the two wires hooked up to a blue LED.

That made me LOL.

Having said that, I think I'll get one to go with throttle body spacers.
