Any One else See This?

Its called Fuel Smart I saw it on Gearz. Basically it wires in between the injectors and cpu and turns any car into an on demand displacment. The web site is Fuel Smart Corp. - Welcome! Check it out see what you think, I know if it works like they say I would try it. Darin

go to their FAQ section and they mention some items that help on fuel and list one of them as E3 plugs....i've never heard anything good from e3 plugs or their mpg boost so I'd have to see this contraption work before i'd believe them

2009 Ford Escape Limited - 3.0L, 6 speed auto, 4x4, 25/33 city/hwy imp mpg.
2017 F150 XLT-XTR - 5.0L, 4x4, 3.55's, E-locker, xtr chrome package, fx4 off-road package.
20/25 imp mpg

This technology is already in our Cobalts. From reading the installation manual it appears that it is oriented for V8s that would be in a HotRod, antique car and high performance cars that were never designed for fuel economy to begin with.

I would like more info on it. I did email them but they just sent a phone number to the sales dept. The place is only about 15 min from were i work maybe if i have time ill try to look into it more. I does say it works with 4,6, or 8 cylinder but probably would not see as big of fuel savings with our cars.

sounds too good to be true,

atleast for out engines. "turns off unnecessary cylinders"

we only have 4, for 6 and 8 engines i think it would turn off 2/3 and 4 respectively.
Id love for someone to prove me wrong on this one. remember the gas ionizers and chips for performance lol?

If you believe this I have a Turbonator, some Fuel Magnets, and a bottle of unicorn piss sprinkled with fairy dust that will give you 300% more hp and mpgs I can sell you.
