    All it looks like is a 1/4 inch stop , with some vacuum hoses and a couple tees .

    Betcha thats all it is with instructions on how far to turn that stop for each model :wink1:

    You can buy all that at the hardware store :D

    Sounds like a big SCAM to me. With the EPA pushing the big OEM’s to develop better and more efficient cars don’t you think that if this were to work just like all the other B/S gadgets like the tornado they would have already developed and implemented something like this? The best way to get good gas mileage id to keep your truck well tuned, replace the air filter, and change the oil often and most importantly don’t have a lead foot.. Save your money and don’t waste it on this kinda crap.

    BOGUS

    Popular mechanics did a test on all the latest ones and not ONE of them made any real world mileage claims...

    Even if it did work as claimed. Dont think it would work well on a 4x4..The add said it applys vacume to the atmospheric vents on the carb. So that means everythime you got off camber or in the bumps you would be sloshing fuel all around and it would be sucked into the intake manifold. Making for a crappy runing truck and even worse fuel milage.
