Are we paying too much for gas ?

Now, he did not demonstrate functionality when ... say hill climbing/towing/or passing is needed but, he did say he drove it about two miles and said he got it up to 55 mph.

Wonder how lean it's running? Idling on fumes is one thing. If it destroys the engine in the process it's not very cost effective.

Nothing new about a lean-burn engine. The problem becomes emissions, and possibly detonation/pinging doing damage, but that could be mitigated somewhat by timing or lower compression.

there are to many of these videos, sure it will idle, sure you can drive it but how many miles have you put on it and what is the MPG? Saying "some guy" is getting "200 MPG" is bogus.

Wait... how did this get out! I would think the oil industry or car companies would have bought this technology and destroyed it (j/k)

like the 200 mpg carburetor the "oil companies bought up and hid" ?

Still hasn't been verified by independent testing as of SEMA 2014
