Scientists scoff at device touted as gasoline saver

A new "money-saving" device for your car won't clean the air or improve your mileage, but it might clean out your checkbook.

The MPT SmogBuster Fuel Disc is promoted across the country through multilevel marketing - a sales technique that relies on layers of distributors. But scientists at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden say the device is a waste of money.

The fuel disc is a quarter-size piece of plastic. Its promoter, OceanCity Network of Thousand Oaks, Calif., is advising its network of salespeople to stock up on the stickers.

Classic 1996 web design. Nice to see that the logic is copyrighted. Wouldn't want anybody duplicating their logic.

You could if you were a little faggot with his own jet airplane. But you don't have an airplane.
