Electrocuting Your Car

I'm not talking about an electrically-powered vehicle, I'm talking about actually electrocuting a gasoline combustion engine to cause it to use less gas.

A Temple University researcher has created a device that produces an electric field around the engine. This "thins the fuel or reduces its viscosity so that smaller droplets are injected into the engine which in turn leads to more efficient and cleaner combustion". The device could improve fuel efficiency by up to 20%!
