… all the same bullshit… it is a scam, it does not work, it has snake oil written all over it.
HMFSales is one company selling this crap, it turns out HMF Sales are none other than Trevor Hunter of HHOTech. HMFSales / Trevor Hunter are resellers for National Fuel Saver, companies all associated with scams and cons.
On Trevor’s site it says that the inventor of the “technology” was pursued by the government for making false claims…
… after five years of US Government study, the inventor won his case with flying colors. In fact the case was so convincing that the Federal Judge ruled that the US Government must pay legal expenses…
The only EPA report on Platinum-based combustion enhancers I can find can be read here, the conclusion was that the device had no significant effect on either economy or emissions. Following this testing in 2002, the company in question were fined $75,000 for making false claims and subsequently lost their 2004 appeal too.
They also seem to be eluding to a legal ruling from 1983/1985 (it is not clear which) when someone called Joel Robinson supposedly won a case against the government on a technicality and was awarded $22000 in legal fees. But I can find very little about the case anywhere on the Internet, certainly nothing reliable. Allegedly it was tested in 1980 by Harry Hyde, a man whose qualifications seem to be that he had built some engines and had won some races.
The whole story is so vague, old and unrepeated as not to add up to very much at all.
Trevor also says on his website that engines only burn 68% of their fuel, this is also a complete lie. Most modern engines burn upwards of 99% of their fuel, with well under 1% being wasted. If the platinum enhancer worked as described, and it does not, then the extra fuel that your engine burnt rather than wasted would result in less than a 1% increase in power, not he 22% to 28% that is claimed on the “hmfsales.com” website.
Why do we not have something more concrete or less that 35 years old? Why have motor manufacturers not picked up on this miracle in all that time? Because it is bullshit, that is why.
