I just saw on the news today an old guy that made some kind of switch for his cars and getting 41mpg from the one car and the previous car got 60 mpg. Not sure what it would do to a modern fuel injection car, maybe someone knows. Doesn't seem like it would be good for our carbed cars or injected to me.
Once you are up to 35 mph you flip the switch and it cuts off 4 of the 8 cylinders or 3 of 6 from getting fuel I guess. They didn't get into a lot of detail on that aspect but would assume that was what it does.

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Fred Craine has invented a gas saving device he calls "Mylege Mastre."
"It has never failed," says Craine.
Craine says his invention saves gas and reduces gas emissions.
Craine says, "I'm getting 42 miles to the gallon on this car (a 1998 Ford Taurus). On the other car, I got 60."
Craine is not an engineer, but has done mechanic work all of his life.
He says the electronic device is designed for fuel-injected engines.
At speeds of 35 miles an hour or better, he says you press a switch and the "Mylege Mastre" cuts off the fuel to half of the engine saving gas.
Retired engineer Dave Engle is Craine's friend and technical consultant.
"The secret of the invention is the simplicity and dependability of it," says Engle.
Engle is encouraging Craine to take the "Mylege Mastre" to market.
"I'd like America to use this device to reduce their gas bills. I don't want to take it to the oil companies because they will throw it away," says Craine.
Craine says his "Mylege Mastre" will sell for $35 to $70, depending on the size of the engine and if the vehicle has cruise control.
He says it works on any four, six, or eight cylinder engine and takes about an hour to install.
Craine plans to explore the possibility of registering his invention with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
here is yet another different unit that american car manufacturers will never implement.
