Car thingy that makes you get super mileage

I saw this one on some conspiracy tv show... People allege that the government has some little thingy that can be attached to your engine that allows you to get like 1000 miles a gallon... apparently some dude bought a car that "mistakenly" did not have the thingy removed and some men in black came and bum rushed his Ford Escort to get it back.

RE: Car thingy that makes you get super mileage

Are you sure this was a conspiracy and not an urban legend show?

While on the topic of cars here’s something that is actually true. Car companies have started putting a “black box” of sorts into the workings of new cars. Police and insurance companies will recover it after a crash to find out information. The modules, or EDRs, record about five seconds of information leading up to a crash, including engine and vehicle speeds, change in velocity - known as delta v - seatbelt use and whether the driver applied the brakes.

So before you lie to the police about how fast you were going when you slammed into that mail box, make sure your car isn’t equipped with one of these little beauties.

oh, sure...whatever!! next thing you're going to tell us is that there are these "black boxes" in planes, huh?? That some little gadget is going to give out all of this information, so the government can use it against us, right?? This little "black box" can survive a crash too, right?? I mean, if they did have this magical "black box", why dont they just make the whole plane out of it, huh?? Just one BIG conspiracy?? You are one wacked SOB!! You need some help. Big time. Oh yeah.

I'm sorry, I can't tell if your response is sarcastic, ignorant or a combination of the both.
