Do these two things work?

So I just want peoples opinions on these two things? Electric superchargers and water for gas?
Does water for gas actually work and provide any mpg benefits or is it all garbage. Do the electric supercharger provide any boost or horsepower gains? Not the ebay ones but the force flow ones.

idk for sure, but just remember if it sounds to good to be true, it definitely is. I fell for one of those hoaxes once, a metal piece that fit into the air intake to force more air in. long story short, the piece got dislodged and wedged in my throttle body. it dinged up the butterfly valve. and it actually hurt performance. so just be careful. you cant trust the testimonials, because usually they're faked. so imo definitely not worth it.

haha yeah it was one of those. it sucked. but in general, if it seems to true, it is. not worth the $300 for the electric supercharger thing and anything messing with the fuel in my car im skeptical about. to much to go wrong you know?

Stay away from those fake superchargers. cco8 is right, the turbullence is going to screw with ur maf and end up hurting ur performance and mpg.

IDK who told u to put water in ur gas tank, but that is the most ridiculous thing ive ever heard. We used to put water in peoples gas tanks that used to **** with us. Long story short, engine seized up and they didnt have a car anymore.

those are just little ricer products that people sell and other people are dumb enough to buy them, just like the "racing chip" supposed to give you 100 extra HP for $25...

Stuff like that will tear your car up.
