To enhance RRich's remark, PT Barnum was right when he said "There's a sucker born every minute".

I prefer Splitfire plugs for my diesel engine, they added 2 mpg and 10 hp.

Of course they are serious. They hooked Ted D didn't they. Do you think he wants a share of my Brooklyn Bridge. Not many shares left.

And that is supposed to be proof of their being something unusual or a break-through design? Model-T engines ran very well on some pretty darned crude spark plugs.

They are looking for investors - look at their website.

If they had a real product, they wouldn't have to look for them, there would be a long line of people and companies clammering for a piece of the action.

County fair stuff.

Think about this, it it improved MPG don't you think every auto manufacturer would be using them since they have to meet higher CAFE standards every year.

New plugs can always be expected to give better mpg. True. That is if the old plugs were totally wore out, barely hanging together, and barely able to produce a spark. That is how these gimmick spark plug manufacturers get away with claiming better mpg. They compare them to old totally worn out plugs. Of course any new plug would have also improved the mpg by the same amount.
