Bill, Neil:
I often work on "fixed" equipment that has cathodic protection (in the
petrochemical industry), and I have wished for such a system for mobile
equipment (especially our salt racers).  I haven't had much hope for that
possibility, since to function above ground (or water) such a system would
seemingly have to defy the laws of physics (electrochemistry).

However, I won't condemn it out of hand, since I would love to have such a
miricle device, myself.

I write "operating discipline" for plant equipment, including cathodic
protection systems.  If you get one (or find someone who has one) I can
probably devise an effective test to determine how well it is doing the
intended job.  Weighing the sacrificial anode(s) at time intervals would
seem an obvious approach.

I'd put this in the same class of products as those cow magnets taped to a
fuel line-- bogus.

I have been looking at a corrosion device I saw on Two Guys Garage TV show,
it looks like it would work well for a salt car also, I think it creates a
negative charge on the frame/body and any other metal parts that are
connected in the loop. The link is

If anyone has tried it I would like to know what you think.
