Fuel saving gadget... By Ehsan

Recently, at a gathering with some friends, I heard about an innovative Japanese gadget, which, if plugged into a vehicle, allows an appreciable level of saving in fuel consumption, as much as 25 percent, and that too without compromising on the mileage. In view of the fact that Pakistan is meeting most of its oil requirements through imports, I thought it appropriate to share this information with fellow citizens so that they can ponder over using this gadget to keep their fuel consumption on the lower side and within reasonable limits. While appreciating the apex court's recent intervention in the matter of CNG pricing, it was pointed out by a friend that, though CNG prices have been cut down, petrol prices remain on the higher side because all that is being consumed by the people in the public and private sectors is imported with oil prices in the international market continuously fluctuating. It was at this stage that my friend mentioned the fuel saving gadget and said that he knew some people who had been using this equipment in vehicles of different sizes and models for some time — they had found it quite useful as it slashed their fuel consumption by as much as 20 percent.
If this sort of petrol saving can be achieved by merely using a gadget, and without any compromise on the mileage, then there is certainly no harm in giving such technology a fair try. Such gadgets can help people with limited resources save some money despite petrol prices being increased frequently and reduced rather rarely by the government.
