I just received a request from the person that originally posted this. It appears that their ad is not in compliance and they need to amend it. Just so we are clear here I thought I would post the letter in it's entirety. Below is the request...

Hi Bill,

It's me again. I AM the original poster. This is all my information. I am a distributor with Fuel Freedom Int'l. You can see my site in the signature.

I have received another warning from my compliance department at FFI regarding the below ad which needs to be either edited or deleted.

http://barthmobile.com/eve/for...1087061/m/6601049871

-30%, Fuel Freedom, and MPG-caps

The part if RED is noncompliant. As you stated, if you could just edit that out, I'll be ok with compliance. Waiting to hear from you. So sorry for the inconvenience.


Whole ad here....
FUEL FREEDOM IS HERE! MPG
FUEL CAPS are now available! Stretch your fuel! Distributors wanted worldwide.
Wholesale/Retail.

Watch the VIDEO on our website! WOW EPA registered.
What are they? Vitamin size capsules you place in your gas tank before every fill-up. It’s a chemical reaction, not a trick or gimmick. The reaction always takes place. The results are proven.

What will they do? They will:

Increase gas mileage 10%-30%+.
Work in gas, ethanol, diesel and bio-diesel engines.
Work in automobiles, tractor trailers, boats and RV's.

Increase power.
Increase torque.
Save you money at the pump.
Prevent you from having to spend extra money on premium fuel.
Increase octane level in fuel.
Not harm your engine.

Why? Because it just makes sense. How can you start SAVING on FUEL COST NOW?

I could edit this... but why? So, if the original poster can not edit this I could "tweak" it after a few days. Does anyone have a suggestion on tweaking it?

I am thinking about a warning to just ignore what is in red as it's not in compliance... anyone else?

"Danger Will Robinson!"

To be more specific about my prior post:

Years ago, I had a Camaro SS/RS with the 350 cu. in./325 HP engine.

I got a carburetor that saved 30% on fuel consumption.

I added a Magnetic Flow thingy that saved 20%.

The add-on air filter saved 20%

The ram-air intake saved 10%

The low-rolling-resistance tires saved 20%

The front air dam saved 20%

So, my total savings was 120%. Every 150 miles, I had to stop and drain the excess fuel out of the gas tank. Sadly, one week, I forgot, and the gasoline saved spilled out of the fuel filler, caught fire, and the car burned up.

I'd just admonish Barth Forum members not to get something like this unless they won't be forgetful like I was, and see their Barths go up in flames.

I love Barthmobile, gosh what a hoot.

The quote I use and say came from Barnum is "No one has ever gone broke underestimating the intelligence of the American Public."

Now I hope we can agree that the stuff we have discussed thus far is just foolishness; we all know that for real gas savings the Non-Newtonian parallel universe offroad only chip suitable for 1997 and newer engines offer by the Emperor Wang from the planet Po-no is the way to go. It also generates a force field that prevents intersection cameras from detecting your vehicle, what more could you need?

Some things are best left as originally created. Would you colorize Ansel Adams? Would you reduce the number of reels in von Stroheim's GREED? (Well, maybe Smiler ) Would you bowdlerize Tom Jones? (No, not Vegas Tom). Would you put a Speedo on Michaelangelo's David? Are any mortals worthy to even put arms on Venus de Milo?

Even the best-intentioned translations of works in another language diminish the original. Read four translations of the Odyssey, for example. All are good, and attempt to be true to the original words and thought. But all are different. There is a cultural context that a creative artist or writer puts into his art that others cannot improve.

OK, I'll stop.

The original post deserves to remain unedited in all its original glory. Even its creator should respect it for what it is and leave it unedited.

One item that has been proved to be effictive is the fuel magnet. I do not remember all the details, but this was presented at a bus conversion rally seminar a few years ago by a Detroit Diesel engineer. Most of the testing was done in FL by various metro bus lines. In controlled testing they were seeing up to 1/2 mile per gallon increase. Not much, but in a large fleet an enormous amount of fuel. There are some web sites dealing with this. The problem was nothing explained why. It just was.

OK awaiting the arrows.

Our very own EPA has tested these devices and have concluded that they really don't do anything but lighten your wallet. Honestly, wouldn't you think that, if all it took was a magnet to increase MPG then all of the auto and truck manufacturers would have these installed at the factory?

I remember consumer reports doing an article on magnets and other devices many years ago and they reported the same thing too... No increase in MPG.

Have you noticed a 1/2 mile per gallon increase too? I wish it was that simple.

Maybe we have it all wrong. Maybe these pills are really meant to be dietary supplements. Will it help me with my hairline too? ;-)

Today while cruising down I-5 from a trip to the Washington Coast, Wifey asked me why we don't buy some kind of fuel additive she heard of on the radio Coolthat gives fantastic mileage increases.... Thanks to Rusty, I was able to paraphrase the above and win this argument before it started!!
A Happy John!!

Hey does anybody remember the folks in either Arizona or New Mexico that were trying to reinvent the steam engine car about 30 years ago? As I recall, it was going to save the planet, too. But the conspiracy guys said that Detroit killed it anyway. But now that we have global warming, where would we get all the water to make the steam? Maybe from melting icebergs, but then there's the salt problem. Water would probably end up costing more than gas--just like some 'bottled' water does now.
