    I wondered what happened to them... I saw what KR and PP did to them, just disgusting, and quite honestly criminal in my book. I always cringe when I hear someone say KR said this, or PP recommends this. I would not do business with either of these charlatans.

    Omg I remember this truck, it was supposed to be a new paradigm in trucking where KR and Bruce swore they would get this truck to at least 10mpg :blob3::blob5::blob4::blob:
    they use to bombard the listeners to put their orders in for PP gliders fast b4 all the spots got filled up:laughing6: lol

    Is it any wonder, in an age of $1.75 diesel fuel that Mr Rutherford switched his "fuel saving" expertise to his now touted "healthy regimen" for truckers. He is not an expert or have any training in either topic.
    He defines the word "charlatan".
    from Merriam dictionary:
    one making usually showy pretenses to knowledge or ability : FRAUD, FAKERa charlatan willing to do and say virtually anything to remain in the spotlight.

    You know, I used to listen to his show pretty often, mainly before the health stuff started. And honesty, after he started the health stuff, I did learn some things that helped. I actually started eating better, lost a bit of weight (like 20 pounds, I was 210 and went to 185).

    I quit listening to him after I heard him pushing to buy his supplements. This was after he spent a year talking about how supplements in general are a waste, and just by eating cleaner, all our problems will go away.

    He did the same thing over additives for the truck. Always talked about additives being a waste. Last I heard his show he had Bruce on and they were pushing some additive to clean the emissions systems or something. That was really the final straw for me.

    Yea the truck is impounded at a U.S. government facility.

    Kevin suggested that they try running TWO turbo 3000Ds in series. The truck started getting such good economy, that it actually started pulling negative fuel mileage - meaning the truck would actually generate fuel oil as it's driven. The Department of Energy got wind of this so they seized the truck and are studying it, in order to reverse engineer it and apply the technology to military equipment. A friend familiar with the situation told me that the truck is actually synthesizing atmospheric H2O and CO2 into hydrocarbon chains on the fly. Jeff and Kathy were given a dummy lookalike truck and paid to keep quiet about it.

    Yes last I heard they are still running there super truck AND they did get a settlement from Bruce at PP .. not sure of how much but they did get some $$$ out of PP. I talked to Micro Blue and they said Bruce would not take responsibility for anything and it was Micro Blue that found them a good shop that was able to straighten out there trucks problems. They said they were never mad at Pittsburgh Power they just couldn’t afford to keep going back to them. They have a few posts on the internet about it , more detail then I can give you.
