Gas Saving Devices

There are a lot of gas saving devices available in the market today, and all of them virtually claim the same kind of results: increased fuel economy, reduced emissions and better performance. Moreover with people getting increasingly desperate and more willing to try new things, these companies engage in aggressive advertising techniques that employ ordinary people and bloggers to advertise on their behalf. As a result there can be found hundreds of individual testimonials and websites corroborating the same ideas independently, but in fact they all have the same vested interests in promoting these notions and have hence cannot be considered credible. During the course of our research into these gas saving devices, we took every single viewpoint into consideration and weighed them against the findings of non-partisan entities like the EPA and the applicable principles of physics. We will present to you both the extreme viewpoint and the reasonable opinion along with the corresponding arguments.

Ignition Assist Devices

The first major class of devices we will discuss are ignition assist devices. These devices promise to increase the efficiency of combustion by altering the spark plug circuitry in some way. High performance spark plugs fall in the same category. They claim that increasing the intensity of the sparks will result in more complete combustion and thus more power. Following are some such devices and the purported advantages claimed by their manufacturers.

Autosaver: It is device that is coupled with the primary winding of the ignition coil, resulting in an arrangement where a high...
