Think the majority of us on here are far too savvy to fall for 'snake oil' salesmen.
Makes you wonder who falls for these ads?
He has sold 32 Citroen ones and 117 Volvo ones!!!
Gullible Volvo drivers?
Oh, and yes, you can still buy Snake Oil.

I've seen this kind of thing before - AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE
1. Asks to send feedback that it has arrived (if it arrives quickly, then most people will leave positive feedback)
2. When the unit does't work, the buyer can send it back for a full refund (the seller does indeed give the buyer his money back, so will probably get positive feedback because of that)
3. As it's only £15, some people may not bother to spend the time to send it back, complain etc, so the seller gets to keep the £15
4. If 1000 people buy the device and 800 of them take the time to send it back and get a refund, that leaves 200 people who didn't bother, meaning the seller has just made £3000 on a device that doesn't work
It's a classic scam and a case of 'how many numbers' don't ask for a refund
Most people won't give negative feedback if they get their money back
Some of his messages to the neutral and negative feedback messages are funny though
"My 5 year old Quadraplegic deaf dumb blind comatosed daughter grew these fine"
He also seems to be selling packs of seeds that contain just dust
I fitted two and now my car does 0 to 60 in under 3 seconds and I have to drain some fuel out of the tank every 400 miles it's so economical. I bought 3 and gave a friend the free one but he can't see any difference. I think it must work on faith like aeroplanes (if all the people on board lose faith in the plane's power of flight the plane crashes)
So where does this bit go then ?
