Never seen that before. Are they Magnets? I can see one says coolant optimiser. They are probably a hoax with promises of improving gas milage or something.

I would assume that this is some kind of gimmick. I went to the site and they want $400.00 for those things. I wonder why it is in Canada only? I wouldn't have much faith in them thats for sure.

But what if they really do work?

Maybe you should start a bidding frenzy on here.

I'll start: Give me $1.00 and I'll take 'em. You pay the shipping of course!

Good luck selling them. Maybe you could remind the guy that sold you the truck that he left them installed and give him a chance to buy 'em back? He bought them the first time? In fact, besides you, he's the only person I know that has ever bought any?
