    Has anyone experience with "Fuel Atomizer 2000"? Does it really work?
    Comparing to another "fuel savers" (i.e. magnets on gas lines), it seems to
    be more reasonable - it viporizes some gas, mixes it with air and puts to
    air intake. Here is a link:

    Have anybody tried it?

  2. I have some snake oil to sell you also.

    I'm not selling them. I want to buy it on eBay. And by the way, I have found
    better price than on this website.

  4. You missed my point entirely. If you believe their claims, and are willing
    to actually pay for one, you might as well buy some snake oil also. Both
    will work equally well. Injectors control the amount of fuel in the
    cylinder (using computers), puting more fuel into the air before it enters
    the combustion chamber will only serve to screw up the fuel to air ratio
    that the computer is working so hard to maintain.

    Well technically, it will work, the liquid fuel injected into the
    combustion chamber required some thermal energy to get "atomized"

    By raising the temperature of the fuel, it will require less enrgy from the
    combustion chamber and will recycle part of the heat from the exhaust
    system. I could compute the real saving but i quick estimate would be in
    the 0.1% range!

    Now for "REAL" devices that "REALLY" improve the fuel economy:

    Cruise control
    Driving speed and driving style
    Air pressure gauge ( when used weekly on the tires)
    Engine oil (I do not want to to start the synthetic oil debate again but a
    1-2.5% difference in my case)
    Plugs (I do not want to to start the iridium-platinium plug debate again but
    a 1.5-2% difference in my case)
    Clean air filter
    Empty the trunk (weight is a big factor in fuel economy and performance).

    Oh yeah...that thing is GREAT!!!

    ...but, be sure and put BOTH of the "FA-2000"
    stickers on, as soon as you get it.

    I only put one of the stickers on the first
    month, and only saved 25% on gas. After the
    putting on that second sticker, is when I got the
    50% gas savings, LOL LOL!!!

    Chicks love it, too!!

    But be careful. I put 5 stickers on my
    car and the gas tank overflowed.

    This type of device will work well with throttle-body injection or a
    carburetor system where the air and fuel actually mix in the intake
    manifold. I doubt you will see any difference in a multi-port style
    injection system where the fuel is pumped directly into the cylinder......

    I saw an info-mercial for the Tornado I think they call it. They never
    actually bragged about gas savings for injected vehicles in that one.....

    A minor nit. To the best of my knowledge, multi-port
    injection squirts the gas into the intake manifold
    behind the intake valve, not into the cylinder.

    This type of device has been around since the early fifties, and maybe even
    before. I distinctly remember readin their ads in Popular Mechanics. Someone,
    (I think Motor Trend), finally tested them and found them worse than worthless.
    No gain in power or response, and mileage was atually a little worse. If you
    think about it, a number of highly paid engineers spend their carreers
    designing intake systems tuned to a particular engine. It's hard to believe
    that adding a device that interrupts the flow would be of any benefit.

    They didn't work with carburetors, and they won't work with any kind of fuel
    injection.

  12. But they might, if combined with those horsepower pellets you drop in
    the crankcase that dissolve in the oil and coat all the surfaces of the
    engine to make them super slippery...

    What other scams do you suppose are about to be revived next?

    Maybe the "Mini Supercharger", kind of an early variant of the Fuel Atomizer.
