With gas prices right up there these days, be prepared to find lots of fuel additives showing up at the parts store and late night TV. A new additive, Clap, (yeah, great name) will give your engine the mileage boost you’re looking for.
What’s really great about Clap (did I say that?) is that it’s made from really tiny particles of ground up rock, a mineral called serpentine, and the particles are so fine, a millionth of a millimeter in diameter, you get the added benefit of being able to say you’re using nanotechnology. Remember, nano is the new word these days. These nanoparticles are supposed to fill in the cracks and crevices in old engines and lower friction. Unfortunately, people will buy this stuff.
There are always lots of ads in the backs of magazines promoting miracle additives and as soon as you have any newsworthy event, like a sharp spike in gas prices, products like this will sprout like weeds. Next up, the Hydrodrive Electronic Catalytic Converter!
