Thank you Jay. I tried your magnet on my fuel line in 1982, I didn't
notice any change on my car fuel economy; that's why we spent a fortune to
research the cure for oil crisis. If you believe your magnet works, please
bring your car to show off with our car (that we have doubled in mileage.)
Can you bring yours to Seattle KOMO TV or KIRO 7 TV sometimes next week?
This way we can prove who is real.
I have a question about hybrids: is it true that kind of battery used in
hybrids can be recharged at most several hundred times?- so after that it
needs to be replaced. How many years would such a battery last?
Don't know the battery specifics, but I have a
neighbor who recently purchased a midsize
Ford hybrid. It's like an Escape or ??, it's about
the size of a Honda Pilot.
He told me that the thing has a 96HP electric
motor which, of course, does most of the start
and stop heavy work. He also says that the
batter(y)(ies), in the rear of the vehicle, are
covered by a special warranty for eight years,
or 100K miles. The vehicle warranty is three
years, or 36K miles.
Sounds right under moderate drive. I'm not sure if Boris is trying to test
our knowledge. Every battery has its limitation, if you brake hard (you
put in 2A, you only get 1A in return approximately), this explains why some
people get 25-32mph on a hybrid. If you want more mileage, plan ahead and
try to avoid braking. If you're in a rush, speeding and braking won't save
you energy, only with our tune-up vehicles you can speed and brake often,
you still will come better than a hybrid 37-41mpg usually on aggressive
drive, otherwise 51mpg.
I see. Why do they prefer diesel cars in Europe (as opposed to hybrids)?
Also, I have a subie - when I go skiing I never need chains, even in deep
snow (unless road is completely closed for traffic - then I can't use it
obiously). From reviews (for example, at edmunds.com) Lexus RX hybrid
doesn't have a potent AWD system.
OOPS - sorry: Edmunds says that about Highlander, Lexus RX review doesn't
say anything about AWD system.
Third-row seats fold as one piece rather than in split sections, not
suitable for off-road or serious winter duties.
And in a number of countries diesel fuel is (or was) MUCH cheaper than
petrol, tho' there might also have been a compensatory tax on the car...
it's a complex issue.
In this context it is noteworthy that Britain was late to take to diesel.
The fuel did have a price advantage but no longer since the tax rates were
aligned with petrol.

Typical guess from common ignorance.
There is one American man making over millions for turning a HUMMER into a
30mpg. I bet you don't believe that news neither, but I believe it because
we do similar thing here.
Thanks Carl for your advice. I don't think it's easy to understand
someone else's design. For instance, fixing dragging brake problem, you
tried it 6-7 times, the same problem returns. That's why we don't disclose
our technique. We have to sell short a little bit while pending for a
For only 4% of a hybrid cost, OFS can turn any vehicle into a hybrid-like
vehicle. It's called Fuel-Efficiency Tune-up. It increases gas mileage and
horse power without harming the vehicle like the N2O technique.

Unlike drum brakes, which have retracting springs, disk brakes do not
retract when the pedal is released, therefore the pads can rub against
the rotor causing friction in the form of a minuscule braking force. The
solution is to have the pads retract from the rotor mechanically
(springs?) or hydraulically (negative fluid pressure/vacuum).
On Mercedes-Benz's, fixing dragging brake is not too difficult, unlike
fixing the Japanese's ones. In any cases do double-check your work,
because usually the same problem return 5-6 times due to brake re-adjust
BTW - We already reached 90-mpg on converting Mercedes-Benz's any models
C230 - E320 to triple mileage. Thanks to our Friction-2-Energy
technologies, it makes a big difference.
