Sometimes when an Eco-Scams reader sends me a link I think it has to be a wind up, Green Future Fuels is one. The product is nonsense (from their description their fuel additive appears to be just bio-diesel), the claims are ridiculous, it all the hallmarks of a scam and the text does not make sense (both scientifically and in English generally, not that my English is always great but they are trying to look like professionals).
Even weirder than all of this they appear to have stolen the picture off the back of my book and used it on their website! (OK, so it is likely that it is just a free stock picture). Continue reading ‘Green Future Fuels is a scam’ »
This is clearly not an eco-scam, it is just eco-stupid!
Here we have two large vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) mounted on the roof of a ferry that shoots about the San Francisco Bay, I spied it North of San Francisco from Angel Island today.

The UN’s Energy Globe Award for 2010 in the catorgy for “Air” went to the Epoch Energy Technology Corp. for developing a “dual fuel system for buses and trucks” – this dual fuel system is a carbon copy of the HHO run-your-car-on-water-scam which has been kicking about for decades, it is scientific nonsense and cannot possibly work.

Too good to be true
You instinctively know what something is too good to be true, don’t you? And things which seem that way almost always turn out to be just that, too good too be true. I am constantly coming across products for sale on the internet which are such obvious bullshit, and yet someone must be buying them.
Recently, while researching for my book on bio-fuels, I am coming across loads of magnetic miricles. These things simply attach around your engine’s fuel lines, attached with zip-ties, and enhance the fuel magnetically; reducing pollution, increasing performance, reducing consumption, increasing range.
Sound too good to be true? Well obviously! If these things worked they would be fitted as standard to all new cars, in fact it would be compulsory.
