Forget about the "divisible" part, and let's find numbers with the product of the digits equal to their sum.

We can assume the number has a lot of 1's, and some other digits. We cannot do just with 1's (except if the number is "1" itself), or with just one "non-one" (no solution), or with three or more "non-ones", so we need TWO "non-ones" and two ones, to fill out to four digits. The only possibility is 2, 4, 1, 1, which produces 4112 as the only possible multiple of 8.
