And there's a reason why you're down and unable to rise. All I do is point it out. Tony is (of course) far more knowledgeable in the field than I am. But certain BS tests apply regardless of specific field, and thus require no expertise in the field to use.
For example: I don't know if Spain has a standardized college admissions test, but the US does - the Scholastic Aptitude Test, or SAT. You are a college admissions officer who is about to interview an applicant whose application doesn't contain an SAT score - probably the only such application you see that year. He confirms that he didn't take it. You ask why. Instead of answering directly, the applicant points out the large number of favorable recommendations attached to his application. Unsatisfied, you ask again. He launches into a convoluted story of broken-down cars, missing scores, and how all of those recommendations are more meanngful anyway. His application is also missing high school grades, for which he has another convoluted explanation centering around his home-schooling. Eventually you draw the obvious conclusion - either this guy did take the SAT and didn't do well, or he is unwilling to take it for fear that he won't do well. Does he get in? Why not? Don't all those people saying nice things about him mean anything?
There is a fuel-economy equivalent to the SAT - the EPA's standardized testing protocols. Why hasn't FFI used it and publicized the results? Don't tell me that it's money - while it's true that the test would be quite expensive for an individual, isn't it true that
At least that's what they say.Thus began Fuel Freedom International, started in November 2005. Since then, it has grown to a successful business, generating more than $1 million and thousands of satisfied motorists each week in business.
FFi is currently shipping to over 181 countries around the world, and maintains offices in the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and The United Kingdom. Operations are run by independent distributors located throughout the world, some 30,000 of which are based in the U.S.
So why don't they take a small piece of the $1M per week and retain a reputable lab to perform what the entire engineering world (at least those who don't work for FFI) views as the definitive test? Or have they already and not done real well?
Now, artessa, I'm sorry if this is an "unintelligent commentary" which "adds nothing constructive whatsoever". It's just that it is also (as Tony might say) bleedin' obvious.
