This is just plain old sad. I wouldn't ever buy a car at a place selling such stuff because I wouldn't think they'd be competent to do repairs on it when the time came...

According to Synergy Labs, the valve works by rechanneling and increasing the air that goes into a vehicle's intake manifold, allowing more oxygen to be present during engine combustion. As a result, the company claims, fuel is burned more efficiently.
The combustion efficiency itself of an internal combustion engine with fuel injection is over 95% efficient. An internal combustion engine loses most of its energy to friction, heat, viscosity, ect., but the actual burning of the fuel is very efficient where more than 95% of the fuel is converted to heat.

I smell a scam not much different than some magical 100 mpg carbeurator.

the h3 has an inline 5. its got no power, of course it better get over 15mpg.

25mpg still isnt a big deal though. its still a large turd and if gm isnt backing it, then its a still a major risk, especially if its not increasing efficiency, but rather forcing the motor to run lean.

...an amazing 25mpg* highway!


*25 meters per gallon. See dealer for details. Not available in some states. Void where prohibited by the Kyoto Protocol. Inquire about the "Mall-Rated" Package.

I was at a traffic light. To my left was a cement truck. I looked up at the top for the air snorkel. The water dam cap fins "many of them" where on an 45 degree angle. Do you THINK to spin the air? Been there done that!
