Viper Cell

Has anyone used a Viper Cell fuel saver? There are claims it adds 10% to your fuel economy.

I googled the Viper fuel cell. Its been out there since about 2011. The county that installed the things in their vehicles is the same county where the inventor lives and thats no coincidence. This ranks up there with the carburetor that will increase your gas mileage to 100 mpg and other such claims. Our whole lives we have been told "if sounds to good to be true it most likely is". I would never put such a system on/in my car or truck. And can you imagine the inside of the unit is secret? Its the modern version of snake oil I think. Best advise is to sit back and watch. If it goes national and makes all the news, then I might buy one.

At 65 mph 6.1 gpm, at 55 mph 8.2 gpm, at 45 mph 10.2 gpm 65 vs 45 59% increase in fuel milage. Also there's no installation cost.

Wow, those things are expensive!

In my quick review of the website I didn't see a money back guarantee posted anywhere. That alone makes me very suspicious.

I agree with Fred1609.

You may be right about the modern day snake oil. If they were truly working all the auto parts stores would be slinging them.

I have seen many of those devices.. Kind of reminds me of the lawyer commercicles where the woman says "My attorney good lawyer, I hurt my thumb and he got me big money" (She names an amount)

The same ad, with the same woman, was used by at least 20 different law firms. She was a paid non-client of course.

SNAKE OIL is the kindest thing that can be said of these devices.. Outright fraud, the most accurate.

How to tell if a "Improves gas millage" product is legit....

IF, and I say IF, it was that easy to get 10% better MPG in these days of government mandated MPG's and MPG ratings in every advertisement.

Why are they not standard, and installed at the factory?

Right. because they do not work. that's why.

My brother bought and installed one of those magnetic thingies that go on the gas line. Claimed it worked; he's never wrong.
