Headlights saving MPG??!

Anyone want to explain how these save me fuel? Maybe it will be worth it.. like my Tornado Fuel Saver and the fuel line magnets that align the fuel molecules.

Amazon.com: Sylvania 9005 EB/2 HB3 BP/12 TWIN EcoBright Headlight Bulbs (High-Beam), Pack of 2: Automotive

Product Description
From the Manufacturer
Balancing the needs of performance, efficiency and environmentally responsible usage and manufacturing, Sylvania EcoBright headlights are the right bulbs for drivers hoping to see more clearly. The Sylvania 9005 EB HB3 BP 12 twin pack features two headlight bulbs rated 25% brighter than standard bulbs, use up to 21% less energy, reduce CO2 emissions and virtually pay for themselves in fuel savings. Couple this with the environmentally sound practices used in their manufacture and you have the perfect choice for drivers as equally concerned about their impact on the planet as they are about visibility on the road.

The Environmental Choice in Automotive Lighting
With million upon millions of vehicles around the world on the road both night and day, the need for safe and effective automotive lighting is an undeniable necessity. Yet the equally clear realities of ever shrinking resources worldwide, higher energy costs and environmental impacts linked to human actions demand a balance between the needs of drivers and responsible stewardship of the environment for current and future generations. Thankfully drivers looking for a green alternative today can achieve just such a balance with Sylvania EcoBright headlights.

Sylvania EcoBright headlights are designed from the ground up to provide drivers with excellent down-road and side-road visibility with a brightness rating that is 25% higher than an aged standard bulb. EcoBright bulb's low operational wattage also allows for energy conservation, resulting in the use of 9% to 21% less energy than SAE maximum design specifications. This decreased use of energy by vehicle electrical systems leads to monetary saving in fuel, estimated between $2 - $19 over the life of a pair of headlight bulbs, which in turn equates to reduced CO2 emissions by your vehicle. In addition to the environmentally beneficial features of the use of EcoBright bulbs, they are manufactured and packaged with environmental responsibility in mind. EcoBright headlights are mercury free, cadmium free, and lead free and are manufactured in facilities dedicated to limiting contaminants. This means cleaner water and air, now and forever. Finally, Sylvania packages its products using paperboard packaging containing up to 100% post-consumer recycled fiber (depending on type), and 40% less plastic per year than the previous packaging. Together this reduces the amount of raw materials needed and increases the number of products that can be shipped at a time, improving transportation efficiency and reducing fuel usage and associated air pollution.

Key Features:

Save Energy - from 9 to 21% wattage savings.
Save Money - from $2 to $19 in gas over the life of a pair.
See Better - Drive Safer - 25% brighter than an aged standard bulb.
Environmentally Responsible:
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions are reduced from 13 to 107 lbs. over the life of a pair.
EcoBright bulbs are mercury free, cadmium free, and lead free.
Produced in factories committed to reducing the impact to the environment.
Sylvania calls this commitment to responsible manufacturing, Global Care.
2 EcoBright 9005 EB HB3 BP 12 12.8V, 59W headlight bulbs included.
The Sylvania Global Care Program
Global Care is a Sylvania company-wide program that represents their commitment to social and environmental responsibility worldwide. As a leader in innovative lighting solutions, Sylvania is dedicated to products and processes that contribute to solving global sustainability challenges, address economic needs and protect the environment for today and for the future.

Let's agree with the marketers for a minute that they actually will save you $19 over the life of the set of bulbs because the lower wattage puts less of a load on the alternator. How much is that? 20 ounces of fuel every 10,000 miles? Yeah, that'll save the planet

It doesn't have to make sense, or even be factual, to be attractive to the global warming zealots.

How about this, It saves you money on gas/Diesel cause you only have to replace them once, so 1 less trip to the auto store to buy new bulbs LOL.
