Smile FSD fuel saver deivce

Anyone have any experience with the FSD fuel saver device? Claims to increase power and fuel economy by up to 18% by better atomizing fuel.

Thanks for any input available.

I don't know exactly what Fuel Saving Device you're referring to, but IF it really worked, don't you think the highly competitive vehicle manufacturers would be using it?? These devices take your money and return nothing. If you really think atomizing the fuel better will increase mileage by 18%, why wouldn't auto makers design better injectors? Why not add magnets to the fuel line, everyone knows they help align molecules for better efficiency. Thing is, I tried picking up spilled gas with a magnet and it didn't work!

Is this the fuel saver devise you're talking about?
Amazon.com: Fuel Doctor FD-47 Fuel Saving Device: Automotive
There are 40 customer reviews at/on that link.

IMO that "miracle device" is interesting, (but NOT $29.99 interesting).

My theory regarding these devices:
the Federal Government has mandated an ever increasing MPG rating for vehicle engines.

The customers want more power and performance.

If this 400 (rounded) device would accomplish that then Detroit would incorporate it and jack the price of the ride a kilobuck.

Hp = fuel gone

Your "Right Foot" is the best fuel saving device a person can own for these big engines.........

Keep your speed down to 55mph and you will save far more than this device.

Can you spell "snake oil?"

Seeing this in a motor coach magazine tells me that the revenue is more important than the truth! I would not trust anthing they say.

Notice there's no link to a webpage about this wondrous device. If it's not on the interwebs, it can't be true.
