What a bunch of liers.

Well, at least this scam is better explained than the fuel magnets scam.

Plasma isn't so bad. Plasma exists in between the electrodes of a spark plug all the time.

But their ideas are fairly reasonable and if they could pull that off, it's not a bad idea. However, fuel is already "cracked" during the refinement process and the gasoline you get at the pump is already very "light" and easy to burn. It also takes ALOT of heat and pressure and energy to do that and refineries are VERY good at that. They don't like to waste money.
Sure it could be lighter, but you'd probably have other issues w/ detonation and such. I'm always amused that these tests use "gas guzzling Chrysler v8" engines. In other words, lets take the worst of the worst, as fuel economy goes, and see if we can make an improvement! When they start testing against a modified XFi motor with some sort of VTEC and get significant improvements, then I'll be interested.

I just don't know...........

I transformed Espresso Nero with a lower final drive from a 4 cylinder, installed an XFi brand new cam, I go around with Bonneville Salt Flat racing hubcaps...I even found the aerodynamic lights to make it stop looking like an old Camaro. If I buy and install their stuff, I'm afraid that after any trip my gas tank is going to overflow.

Wrong, the gap between spark plug electrodes is ionized for only a few microseconds each power stroke. What do you thing would happen if the plug gaps were ionized on the intake stroke?
