    On city/highway driving, my Infiniti G20T now reached 65mpg - 73mpg. No
    battery required, and no stingy driving required. That's right, I will let
    you put my car to test (if you belong to a media company), by driving from
    WA State to CA with 1 tank of fuel, 14-15 gallons. My Mercedes E320 also
    reached 51mpg mark, I could improve it a little bit better if I have the
    time. I'm thinking to write a book on how to increase the MPG, My question
    to you is, would you think people will buy my book at $99 The problem is,
    not every one has the same skill in terms of car mechanic and computer
    program, the lack of their understanding could make my book looks like a

    Thanks for your input.

    Why buy expensive hybrid when you can have luxury, safety, force and
    efficiency at the same time?

    Here is Info about Mercedes MINI Range,
    Remember, 72.4 miles per imperial gallon translates to 60.28 miles per US
    gallon- and this is for the average figure of combined city/highway driving

  2. Do I asume that neither Mercedes and Toyota (Lexus) aren't interested?
    I wonder why:). Perhaps snake oil comes to mind.

    Perhaps poor engrish grammar make your book looks like a scam.
    Seriously, if you want to make money, make it on service, not the
    book. Offer to do this for people (modify their cars), not sell a book
    for an exorbitant cost. $99 for a book is scam no matter what the
    subject is.
    If you want people to buy it at that price make it a college textbook,
    thats the only way I would pay that much money for a book.

    Use the power of the internet. First, create a short ad in youtube to
    show off your car. After that, people can comment if its a scam or not.

    Yup berry phunny Tigger, in any cases thanks for your input, you would think
    I'm stupid enough to write the book on my own? hummm.. it's a typical
    American's attitude, I guess.

    Thanks Ed, I thought about that idea too but how can you prove to people
    that your video is not a scam? It can be manipulated like photos. You
    can't video all the way to 800-900 miles of driving, you have to stop and
    start the video, this is where people will have doubt.

    I thought about having someone put a security tape on my gas cap to
    guarantee that I will not refuel. This security tape must come from someone
    I do not know. What do you think about this idea?

    I didn't write that comment. DougS did.

    Well, here are some suggestions:

    1. There are mpg measuring instruments that you plug into a cars ODB
    2. Can you hook up your device in some standalone electric generator?
    Pour half a gallon, or lower, of gas and run the engine and measure
    the time before it dies out. Compare it with the engine having no
    device installed.
    3. Briefly explain the theory of your product.
    4. Get a DMV inspection before and after, and show the results
    5. The security seal on the tank is a great idea. Have some reputable
    third party involvement like AAA. AAA WA will seal the tank and AAA CA
    will verify
    6. Team up with bus companies where the driver / passenger will verify
    the seal and mileage of your car from start to finish.
    7. Get a service from Infiniti or Mercedes Benz and talk to the
    service manager and tell us what they think about your car.

    Hope you like these suggestions and good luck!

    Thanks for your suggestion, I like your idea for the most part, except that
    this theory isn't just a single device, it is the integration of new
    technology and the improvement of the old technology. It won't be easy to
    undo the work, because it took me 3 days to integrate and test them
    together, so it will take equal time to undo and redo to use your method of
    measurement. I used the Fuel meter and known distance to measure the
    performance along with my calculator. It's a simple math any one can
    understand, because Distance, MPG and hours to drive are all related, plus
    you know your Tank capacity. On the Mercedes, there is a built-in Computer
    that tells you the MPG which is nice.

    DMV and Manufacturer's comment is important. These are always in the
    1. Will it void my car's warranty?
    2. Is this damage my vehicle?
    3. Will my car pass inspection?

    What you _should_ be apologizing for is being chauvinistic
    about Americans, not mistaking somebody for one.

    First you need to submit your vehicle to a well respected test agency,
    to obtain an independent realistic report from their standard test
    Consumer Reports?
    Your last comments above have created doubt in my mind.
    Sounds a bit like the French air car, which hasn't burned up the roads.

    I do not think DMV will not endorse any one's invention.
    Car Manufacturers will always want no one to tamper with their design even
    though they have lots of errors in their own design. For instance, when I
    first bought my infiniti, I smell motor oil every time I went to have an oil
    change, it's typical for Japanese cars and for American car. Do you know
    why? they didn't seal the engine comparment very well, so I went ahead and
    seal it (to block some oil spill by the technician), so does it mean I break
    their warranty? Very likely the car maker will say Yes, but I don't care
    since I am doing the right thing. German cars are well made, you won't
    smell the oil at all. In any cases, I have NEVER benefit anything from the
    car's warranty. Warranty = Guarantee with condition, if your car is new
    then they will give you a prompt attention.
    Definitely NO, if it had the ability to damage the car then I would have
    been dead long time ago. I put my cars to test on the high-way (up to
    100mph) for over a year now, I got speedy tickets while testing, I drove
    what I invented. So do you think I want to die? I worked in Engineering
    field for over 20 years, everything I do has to be safe and well computed.
    The answer is No It will not damage your vehicle, it will extend the life of
    your car, because your car will work less hard.
    Of course your car will pass the inspection. In fact I already went through
    DMV inspection once, it passed without any problem. There is no smoke
    whatsoever from the exhaust pipe.

    It's your own imagination. Do not let your faulty imagination drive you
    nuts. I agree, I do not like the French cars, however their math is much
    more easier to handle the complexity. I am not French but I went to French
    schools when I was little. My English is not perfect, because I was not born
    with it. If you judge people by their tongues, then you are looking at
    their tongues rather than their brains.

    I think you need to trace where the fire started, and fix it at the root
    level. Some of you started to make fun of me first without any evidence.
    This is not the first time, back in April 2007, I claimed I have
    successfully accomplished a 50mpg, some of you called me Mr.. snake oil, now
    I went to 65-73mpg, you still called me Mr. snake oil.

    The golden rule is:
    "Do not do unto others as you would they should do unto you."

    Nice attempt at diversion. What's that got to do with your being
    chauvinistic toward Americans?
