Seen this on ebay...
First impression looks like b****cks, but after 5 minutes reading (it is a very long explanation) seems almost plausible.Confusedcratch:
Any views?
Too good to be true? (As is usually the case.)
Or worth a punt?

Nah, what you want is some of that patent "Snake Oil".

Seriously, looks like £6.00's worth of bo**ocks to me....

Yep! If these were that good then why aren't they fitted as standard?
We get this a lot in the motorcycle mags in respect of 'high performance' exhausts etc. It's someone trying to sell a product
which they'll try to make you believe is the best thing since sliced bread.
The old adage 'If it looks to be too good to be true it probably is.' applies here! :S

LMAO, back in the early 80's I was living in a rural California town and a company was selling "cow magnets" that you could tape on your fuel line to improve mileage. Some sorry souls actually believed it and bought them. P.T. Barnum was right.

Cow magnets were real enough, used to collect and immobilize bits of wire from hay bails in cow's stomachs.

Martin is a top bloke at the Trent Vegas emporium.
Don tested my antifreeze the other day...
Stuck his finger in, licked it, said it was fine!
Can't get better than that.
