I have one of those in my truck! It's called not stomping on the throttle at lights...

That's probably just someone trying to make a buck

Seems about as legit as the african lottery i once won, or the many jobs i have had to pass up in europe. Or i think i may be an heir to the throne in england, but i havent taken the time to confirm these statements as of yet.

Says all i have to do it send out all of my bank acct numbers and ssc# and email passwords and it should all be mine!!! I will let you know what i find out.

I've thought about mass producing little wood wedges that would fit under the gas pedal and stop it from being depressed more than 50% of the way. Market as getting 20% better gas mileage and make millions.

So many idiots would buy them especially if I used really weird hi-tech looking packaging Maybe I would even plasti-dip them black. I mean that's another 10% HP so they're saving fuel with more HP.

Win/Win

Pretty much anything you see that adds HP AND fuel economy has a very high risk of being snake oil...... It takes fuel to make horsepower.
