Let's hope this innovation works better than the heated winshield washer system on GM vehicles.

This invention will work much better than Toyota’s gas pedals. You know that maggot company that doesn’t care about its customers. Yes, that one.

Well if this information is coming from GM then it MUST be true.

Who actually believes this line of crap GM is feeding us? Oh you've reduced the amount of oil that must be used and that saves me fuel? Oh that's fantastic!! What a bunch of horse manure. Then again GM never states HOW MUCH fuel you save.

Maybe they should tell us some more fuel saving tips like perhaps we should only use our power windows when the car is in accessory mode. That saves fuel also.

How about The Original Vortec Cyclone? Instant mileage gains up to 31% for just $39.95.

Or get 50 mpg with the complete Hydrogen Kits for only $279.

Just another PR job by GM.

This is what I like to hear. Innovations to improve gas mileage are always a good thing. Now GM needs to work on converting the heat in the engine exhaust to electricity. I hear other auto manufacturers are working on that.

Wow, such vile remarks from a low class swamp thing.

GM has a history of failed innovations, this will just add to the list.

A worthy pursuit. If they can claim best in class fuel economy, even if it is marginal, best it best; then they can market it as the best which goes a long way in sales.

The big car manufacturers are really developing some great stuff these days, oil pumps must be just the tip of the iceberg.http://www.westechequi pment.com/Oil-Pumps_c50.htm
