  • Freedom Fueler-Fact or Fiction

    Can anyone help me run this down and see if it's legit?

    Looks intriguing, but has the faint smell of fish.

    This guy is full of it.

    I'd be more than happy to run out to Shattuck just to take some pictures of this "refueler". I am going to be in FYV week of October 6th ... Ridgedale, MO the HQ for this outfit is not too far away. (even if it is in hillbilly country)

      You mean, smells like Mercaptan (the odorant used for NG)

          Come on now "EBAY" ??
          The website looks like it was put together in the 90's.
          No Photos or tech info.

          VAPORWARE indeed

            I got some spam mail through Ebay about this and reported it. They just say the usual, that it's a phishing scam and that it didn't originate from Ebay. Well, I'm sending the complaint again.

              I sent them a email asking about pricing and technical details, we shall see. But if I had to guess it looks like a scam or vaporware.

                My sources with Honda say that they have never dumped their FuelMaker. They actually never owned it, they were in partnership with them. Fuelmaker has migrated into Phill and they are still in partnership with Honda.

                There are some companies in Australia and New Zealand, where CNG is by far more popular than gasoline, and these have expressed interest in exporting to the US. There are also Chinese units as well that are clones of the FuelMaker without time limits on them.

                Looks like a duck, smells like a duck, and it quacks. Hmm, it must be a duck.

                  I am in New Zealand frequently and this is incorrect. Consumer CNG use in New Zealand is nil especially after the government removed a CNG subsidy for conversions.
                  With a few commercial exceptions, he doubts cng will make a comeback, as it would need a major capital injection to redevelop a refuelling network.

                      Too bad you have to buy one of those stupid cars in order to get one.

                          Whatever.

                          It looks like they have decided to change their minds anyway:

This corporation will be wholly owned subsidiary of Eco-Fueler Corporation so that all of our investors will indirectly own the new corporation and will benefit from its ongoing sales and profits.

                            This company has been taking peoples money for the past 5 (years that I know of) and have never delivered any vehicles. They look legit on the outside, but I'll not consider them so until they start delivering units to the people they've taken money from. I have steadfastly refused to allow them to promote the company, discuss their product, or even mention it until that time. I think it would be awsome if they marketed their compressor to the public, but I'll have to see it to believe it.

                              I saw an Ecu Fueler on the streets of Springville last week, it was very ugly, just a VW kit trike as far as I could tell, Jim
