I think you're suppose to wrap it around your neck and strangle yourself with it..

For being an idiot who fork over money for something like this. Once you're dead, you will save fuel!

Anyways I'm going to add this to my watch list and see if I can learn something...

Gawd, my ex had a Subaru and when I would go on their forums to investigate an issue, I saw all sorts of posts about the "grounding mod".... underhood their cars looked like some half-a$$ed Flux Capacitor.

Actually there are use cases for this specially on older cars where ground points and ground cables have corroded over time. In my case my 88 944 turbo S needed this to fix fluctuating gauges in the dash and headlight. Adding additional ground points really helped my issues. Gaining HP? I don't know where that came from but maybe if you have ground issues with your ignition system this may help this as well.

I'm surprised they don't advertise this as being made from high-purity oxygen free and cryogenically treated copper cable. I guess audiophiles and clutch heads don't overlap enough.

But seriously, decent grounding is truly a good idea if its not adequate.

Back in the Day

When I was in High School in the early 70's JC Whitney catalogs were always laying around school study hall....a buddy of mine and i found enough parts guaranteed to increase horse power and gas milage on a classic VW Engine that it should actually produce gasoline and have 300 HP
