If it does save fuel, millions of people would have bought it.

.. mostly a placebo effect, IMHO.
Don't think it has been extensively proven scientifically.
But if you have a wad of cash to throw, by all means..
Then you could let us know :)

Actually it does save fuel ! Same like the Imperial Concept Super Aircharger.. Microcompressor / Imperial Concept Super Aircharger... Same wan la all. Save fuel and more power right?

I have installed 7 Imperial Concept Super Aircharger in my car now and the power? YAT LAU. Save fuel, coz now i only need to pump in RM10 and it can last me for 500km. Imagine that!

SAVE FUEL AND MORE POWER! Both at once.

.. most of the time it's only in the 'mind', hence the placebo effect.
You think it's giving you more power, but in actual fact maybe u're pressing the pedal to the metal more.

Only way is running a real dyno, not butt-dyno
I personally have not tried any fuel savers, air compressors though in theory it does look promising. Got friends using it, but so far none have told me that they've saved alot or gotten more power

Even those petrol claimed to be formulated by thier petrol company experts for extra power n saving fuel also cant show such satisfying result.

if it is heavily recomended by Green Peace, then i'd belive it.. or maybe they can get al gore to advertise the product (read: al gore holding up product taking pic and advertised in environment issue magazine).

no .. Air Compressor is not fuel saver, I have installed into my car, but it only improves acceleration when in Air-Cond mode. Air Compressor is more recommended for low powered cars, and thats below 1300cc .. If u drive more than 1500cc .. why bother talking around this thread? ... hahahaha

it is works, but most of us are DIY...not worth to spend few hundred just for tat stuff.

it just allow more air to go inside ur intake manifold...normaly it is conected betwen the pcv hose n intake.

as air increase, fuel wil increase but power increase oso.
