Every once in a while we’ll come across a link to some blog or, worse yet, business that is attempting to convince readers that they’ve got a magical device that runs on “water gas” or some such nonsense.
So it’s good to see that the Federal Trade Commission is laying a smack down on a purveyor of such a device they call the Hydro-Assist Fuel Cell.
Made by Dutchman Enterprises LLC and United Community Services of America Inc., the apparently magical Hydro-Assist Fuel Cell is said to increase fuel efficiency in cars by as much as 50 percent. Not bad for a $1,000 item, except that these hydrogen generators don’t improve mileage.
According to the FTC, not only does the Hydro-Assist Fuel Cell not work, it actually results in worse performance in vehicles.
