    Oh, and this?

    "Whether using this map on your own vehicle will improve its energy flow (or fuel efficiency) remains to be seen."

    No, it doesn't remain to be seen. Feng shui doesn't improve anything measurable about the mechanical performance of a device, because feng shui is make believe.

    Any chance Ford could put a large concentration of "feng shui" in that yellow area titled "Health" so that it can improve the mentality(smarts) of the people who drive cars? It's get'n scary out there folks!!
    Let me clarify more on this. If Ford could pull this off they could incorporate this though their whole model line up and who knows, sell after market "feng shui" STUFF so dealers could get customer in for free oil change with a "feng shui" inspection.
    "Come in for a free oil change while we feng shui you and your car" ;-)

    I'm sorry, what? Can we get a story about which cars are most susceptible to voodoo spells, or which Catholic saints (my own milieu) are the best ones to pray to for fuel injection issues?

    I read this site for information about cars, not for reprints of some moron in Ford's PR department decision to spew some blather about a quaint Chinese folk tradition. The only place this "information" from Ford should have on a car site is at the center of an article mocking it.

    Robert: I'll take the blame for that. Clearly, my sarcasm skills weren't up to snuff on a Monday morning. Part of the problem may be that I'm still mystified by the press release because it came completely out of left field. It was as if the Gap had sent me a press release about how to make great gumbo.

    As for Catholic saints, I believe St. Christopher is the patron saint of automobiles -- or he was, until St. Frances of Rome took over those duties.

    Fair enough, Richard. I was in a pissy mood this morning and I think my response was 90% that rather than your story.
