More dubious gas mileage devices tested
Of course, the quacks argued back, and CNN saw fit to print their responses. The fuel magnet guys argued that their magnet had been installed wrong and requires proper training to install it. I wonder if they tell that to their customers. They claim their fuel magnets work if installed correctly; the EPA would beg to differ about that claim. (Note: All links in that line open PDF files in new windows.) The Tornado representative argued that the results had to be wrong because they had "100,000 satisfied customers." Presumably the satisfied customers are the ones who have not tried to test it by any rigorous methods, as it I have never seen this thing pass a carefully done lab test of any sort.

Someone told me that they're taking the word 'gullible' out of the dictionary, I think I'll write & complain...
