Cheap-Ass Spanish Infomercial Solves the Energy Crisis

A Spanish-language infomercial claims a yellow piece of plastic called “Cheap Gas” will actually save you money on gasoline.

I do not review products sold on infomercials, nor do I expose infomercial scams. Therefore, I will not call Cheap Gas a scam, a fraud, a rip off, or total B.S.

Check it out for yourself:

What an amazing product! I would have thought major auto manufacturers such as GM and Toyota would eagerly pay hundreds of millions of dollars for such a revolutionary invention. Instead this incredible piece of technology is sold on some cheap-ass Spanish TV infomercial.

Do I love that dramatization with the father angrily removing that Dora the Explorer suitcase from the SUV and the forlorn look on the little girl’s face? SI, SEÑOR!

The family had already planned their vacation and packed their luggage—but not until the exact moment they were about to drive away did the father suddenly realize gas was expensive! Or maybe the prices at the pump shot up right at that precise moment, forcing the hasty cancellation of the family trip.

If you really believe that Cheap Gas will save you money by ionizing gasoline, I urge you not only to buy one for yourself but to write your Senator, Congressman, and the White House, imploring them to require every automobile to install Cheap Gas to reduce our dependency on imported oil. Your next family vacation may depend on it!

  • Has anyone actually tried it? I thought it was 1 of the strangest commercials when I came across it. I just noticed that 1 of the local Spanish stations from SF I think had some infomercial & I wanted to see what it was about, so I came across this! LOL

  • I just saw the infomercial and was curious to see if the claims to improve gas mileage was true. I did some research and found that out what ionization meant. Basically the yellow product appears to be a magnet. According to this sort of products have not been recognized by EPA and some companies have had lawsuits by the Federal Trade Commission. I also found a website which offers proffessional engineer’s opinion on fuel saving gadgets and the review is not good. Check it out for your self and come to your own conclusion.

  • I’m currently watching this commercial on TV RIGHT NOW. I was so impressed by this amazing invention that I HAD to go online to find out more. Surprisingly, this brilliant invention doesn’t have a web site of it’s own. A google search of the 800 number (800-845-0602) produces no results. Odd, considering that this is the most amazing device ever manufactured. Who knew that a little piece of crap plastic that does nothing could save you HUNDREDS at the pump? Is it magic? Total bullshit? SI, SENOR!!

  • Si Senior it is bullshit. Does it work? Of course it does for the people selling it. Its all about the money boys, and these boys must be minting gold coins about now if we follow PT Barnums philosophy that a sucker is born every second. Snak oil is still thriving in our time. Get a million people to send you money and then disapear.

  • Reminds me of a famous Indian guy, who used to make Petrol from herbs. His name was Ramar Pillai and some of his followers (including some overzealous scientists in India) believed that our hero, Pillai deserved a Nobel Prize.

    Of course, he ended up being in the Time magazine. The title of the write-up on him: Fool’s Petrol.

  • These guy’s are not SPANISH, they are SOUTH AMERICAN. The americans needs better geography classes.

  • Oh, then please tell me what language they are speaking in the infomercial? This is an infomercial that was aired and created in the U.S., being written about on an American blog, and you are leaving a comment in English, and yet you have no idea when the adjective “Spanish” is being applied to it??

    I’m sure you realize that “Spanish” is a language, not just a nationality. No one blames the nation of Spain for the Cheap Gas infomercial.

  • I bought a used Jeep a while ago with this P.O.S. attached to the fuel line and had one hell of a time figuring out what it is and why it is there. Most of the grease monkeys in the area, like me, came to the conclusion that since we had no idea what it was, if it wasn’t doing any harm, we can only assume it benefits the vehicle somehow and that it was put there by somebody for a reason. Boy were we wrong. A few months later (about 5 minutes ago) I saw this ad air on TV. Right away I knew that was the culprit under my hood. At long last I can rest at ease and remove that piece of crap.

  • I have one of these its a competitors product, they contain rare earth magnets and they really do work
    What “culprit” some guy you make no claims how it has effected your vehicle I have before and after results to satisfy myself of the products claims and it has given good results on my previous vehicle so I changed it over when I sold the vehicle.
