Its made by Hammacher Schlemmer, a German engineering Corporation....so its GOT to work!!! This is the next best thing since the Gummi Bear!

Place your order now! This remarkable breakthrough in technology and fuel efficiency makes a great stocking stuffer and literally pays for itself after 3 fill ups!!! Hahaha

the new 2012s are going to run on goats blood, rainbows, and/or souls which would render this device useless!

I hear the intake ducting on the Pentastar is made up of nothing but these:



they will collectively speed up the incoming air so fast, they you'll be able to open up a worm hole and hit the other side of the galaxy in literally milliseconds!!
but still struggle up hills.

I am flying back from CA to NY tomorrow, I hope the jet has them so my airfare will be lower. Imagine how much American will save using these worldwide.

And yet this one, which bolts around your gas line, gets coverage and postive reviews in the Jeep magazines. Go figure.

Still the same Skymall mag on the way home yesterday from SFO.

Maybe when I go to LA in three weeks American will have a new Skymall mag for something else I must have.

I wish they had pictures of models in these mags to keep my entertained for 5+ hours.

Have trouble falling asleep aboard a "comfortable" aircraft with limited legroom?

Wow you said it! I had to fly to Chicago a couple weeks ago and the legroom on Frontier Airlines was abysmal. And at 5-11, it's not like I have long legs.

Don't rip it tell you try it. I installed 4 in my Jeep and it doesn't need gas anymore. And the engine was replaced with solid gold bars too

Abysmal would denote immeasurably vast amounts of legroom, no? Or was this sarcasm I didn't catch?
