Via Green Car Congress, news of a scam aimed at those who want to reduce their fuel consumption.
The MPT SmogBuster Fuel Disc is a quarter-sized piece of plastic that is to be taped or glued to the bottom of your car’s gas tank. The promoter, OceanCity Network of Thousand Oaks, Ca, says it significantly increases gas mileage and improves air quality.
