The first thing I saw when checking out the site was the company's guarantee:

"Did You Know Your Car Engine Wastes 20%
Of The Gas You Buy? - Ethos Is Easy
To Use, And Starts Saving You Up To 70?
Per Gallon
on Gas - Guaranteed."

The bold claim is the first statement that would edge me away from giving something like this a shot. The statement is purposefully misleading in "guaranteeing" an improvement of "up to" a figure.

I also tend to stay away from offers that market with a 'testimonial' style rather than something that might provide the scientific articles to back it up.

From my reading, emissions of unburnt hydrocarbons are between 1 and 2%, so the dramatic reductions in fuel usage would be quite unlikely.

Give me a dollar. I guarantee I'll give back up to ten dollars...

"UP TO" means not more than. They're guaranteeing you'll gain less than their claimed amount. Fine, but....
A reduction is also 'less than'. Even when you lose rather than gain, you are still below their "UP TO" amount.

Another scam company that keep recreating new product names for the same BS products after they are proven not to work why does the government let them get away with this. The FBI should go after them for wire fraud and other crimes a put them away for many years
