Improve Your Gas Mileage! (Not)

Have a look at these mileage enhancing magnets (linked below). Bob described these "Fuel OptiMisers" in a book that he was writing in the 1990s about Perpetual Motion. Here is what he had to say...

"You can find the ads in science and mechanic magazines, in car magazines, in the pulpy men's magazines, and even inside matchbook covers. According to these ads you don't have to have a special motor using exotic fuel to save money. Just send in your $47.88 (plus $2.50 for postage and handling), and you'll receive your absolutely money-back guaranteed Super Frabjous Whizbang which hooks right into the gas line of your car. Install the little jewel in five minutes, and -- Presto! -- your mileage improves immediately.
Lotsa luck!"
