Auto Fuel Savers
Question submitted on 3/10/08, claims they can double your auto gas mileage and reduce fuel emissions by installing one of their devices that supposedly extracts a hydrogen compound that mixes with your gas to improve engine efficiency. They claim to be EPA approved. Is this true?


I assume you meant doesn't appear to be a valid URL. I haven't been able to find a definitive answer to your question. I've forwarded it to one of our technical assistance engineers, who may be able to give you an answer.

Meanwhile, you may want to take a look at the following:

Running a car on water

Running Cars on Hydrogen Made from Starch

Response from ISTC engineer:

I looked briefly at the web page runacaronwater, and I've seen other "easy" bolt-on systems that claim similar improvements. The claims are attractive, especially to the conspiracy theorists in many of us. I'm both curious and skeptical, leaning very much towards skeptical/doubtful. I've never seen more than performance claims via the internet.

I'd be very happy to see an actual system in place or meet someone who's done it.

Maybe you can find enough interested people to chip in the money to conduct a test. If you ever do, I hope you'll share your results.
