Yeah but if you call it an energy transmogrification device...
or maybe a flux capacitor...

Hey, I'm for looking into anything that will raise FE. There's a lot of wasted heat energy going out the exhaust manifold. If you even could get it to charge a battery you could use it to boost FE in a hybrid.
Currently getting +/- 50 mpg in fall weather. EPA is 31/39 so not too shabby. WAI, fuel cutoff switch, full belly pan, smooth wheel covers.

Now driving '97 Civic HX; tires ~ 50 psi. '89 Volvo 240 = semi-retired.
