    I found this on cragslist for Omaha. CLICK

    Anyone ever heard of anything like this before. I think it's a hoax personally. Oh and the guy can't spell fuel either. :rolleyes: :D

    It says that you will "save 15%-25% on every fill up". Either the pill takes up nearly 1/4 of the volume of your tank or it interacts with the pump to reduce the cost per gallon. Personally, I avoid things that are advertised with obvious stupidity.

    The "pill" you need to save gas is the 2500 rpm pill for your MSD ignition.

    Diesel Fuel

    Heck with his pills, I can make diesel fuel for $.70/gallon.

    They tried that green pill back in the 20's it didn't sell then,and gas was alot cheaper, it isn't going to sell now.

    Alittle insight, we all will be paying $10.00/gallon next year, you heard it here first...

    Later J.
