Default So you want more horsepower?

2001 Silver SLE
70,000km
Fully Loaded (no supercharger)

I've installed a Fuel Genie in my 2001 Bonne i got more hp right away the biggest surprise came with my gas mileage. Before the Fuel Genie i was getting about 570km to a tank with the fuel genie i'm now getting about 740km. A friend has a 2002 40th Anniversary Grand Prix with a fuel genie and has noticed a big improvement with it also. If you want more info go to www.thefuelgenie.com

The woman Donna is in the middle of getting her sympatico.ca email address up and running. As for a pic the inventor didn't want to post a pic of it yet with all the patent pending stuff. To all they are having a show this weekend in Markdale Ontario Canada and have ads playing on the Speed Channel and MOJO radio. Jimmy Spencer #7 of Nascar Racing helpped test the fuel genie.
Send her an email and she'll explain more to you and send info

I don't even know WTF it is. Is it like the tornado thing that swirls like a fan and ruins gas mileage and creates turbulence, or is it different? I don't know why someone would order it without pics or an explanation of exactly how it works. The testimonials read like the claims the website makes. And everyone is CDN, but "Ducan Yates" said his trip of xxxkms increased to xxxkms, and improved 5 miles/gallon. I don't know why a CDN who uses kms/metric all the time would use miles all the sudden in the same sentence. I don't know, maybe I'm just talking out my a$$...but I wouldn't buy it. The 'increase in hp'...how much of an increase...it would probably give an average gain in numbers if there was one.

But if you do have it and it works...good for you. Glad you didn't get ripped off.

What I don't understand is if it increases HP wouldnt that DECREASE fuel efficiency.
Doesnt more power mean less effiency?

Maybe...but I have heard that Hi-Flow CATs improve HP while increasing efficiency too.

BTW, Seth did you just make your intake or was I totally out of it in June when I saw your car? I like my ADTR, but I would not have minded if it was a $18 pipe

Hey ppl i'm just trying to give you some info on this product, i'm not a salesman. I gave you the web address to check out and you did. If you want more info please call one of the numbers or email Donna, they'll answer all your question.
As for me and everyone else who bought them we're not complaining just reaping the benefits.
Thanks for taking a look anyways.

Enjoy your long weekend

We know...I can only speak for myself, but I, (and prob. others as well), aren't ripping on you tho...just a bit skeptical.

Anyway, since you have it, how does it work? What'* the thing look like? Are they available for all cars?

I'm thinking it'* BS as well.....

I'd like to see some photos Baileyjack, if you don't mind of course....

Also... odd that your profile lists the FuelGenie as your website.... got stock in the company?

I'm just a bit skeptical, like most others.... if it is true, then we'll be hearing about it on TV and magazines.

I notice the similarity with your email and hers, as well as the fact that you're an extrusion operator. Would you happen to be an Extrusion Operator for the plastic Fuel Genie? If you are in any way affiliated with this company/product, or it'* owners, please PM me.

If that'* the case, I need to discuss some guidlines for Vendor posting on this forum.

If NOT, then welcome to the Club!
