Fuel Doctor: Gas Saver Angel or Fearmonger Money Waster?
There have been a LOT of trick products about automobiles, some work better than others. The science behind them all SEEMS to be pretty brilliant. The latest little gadget to hit the market is the Fuel Doctor. Feeding off the concerns of the American public about our rapidly rising fuel costs, (no one wants a repeat of July 2008’s average price of $4.12!!) the Fuel Doctor is a nifty gadget that syncs with your vehicle’s computer system. This allows it to monitor the fuel usage and optimize performance.
Wow, that all sounds pretty cool. The problem? IT DOES NOT WORK. In an independant study by Consumer Reports, the “tool” doesn’t seem to do anything at all for fuel usage. Yet another trick to suck dollars from your wallet when you need them the most.
Remember folks, if you EVER have a question about a car gadget, please don’t hesitate to ask My Car Doc for details. If I don’t have personal experience with the product, I’ll research it for you. It’s just one more thing that My Car Doc happily does for our customers.
