Installed the Fuel Shark Device. Would like to know the opinion of my TMC friends.

    I guess it depends on your definition of "modern car". I tend to think of a modern car as being 1990 and later.

    Let's assume for the moment that reducing noise on 12V will somehow increase the efficiency of the ICE, and thus return better MPG.

    What part of the car is being effected by 12V noise where filtering would help?

    What part of the car is generating the noise, and how can the noise be reduced?

    Any filtering that would actually help would need to be very close to both parts (such as bypass caps: What is a Bypass Capacitor?) in order to be effective.

    Seems like adding a random cap meters away from the noise source or part susceptible to such noise will have no effect.

    Someone is having a little fun with you Raffy; but you pretty clearly lost the argument on this one....my suggestion is to laugh it off and move on.

    Raffy,
    My comment was intended as a compliment as I had assumed you were just having some fun with us.
    Please accept my apologies.

    Nigel,

    I think it's Raffy is the one who's had fun with us with over 100 posts about this most ridiculous, silly "shark" device.

    I will follow your advice Nigel. For me main thing is that you Moderators know that I am in good faith.

    You guys all need to quit baiting him and trying to keep him in the conversation. Please let this thread die.
