  1. Firstly don`t put me down for driving an SUV.
    We all have to pay for what we enjoy.
    ie. fishing, boating, food etc. (taxes)
    Previously I enjoyed a rate of 16mpg highway
    and about 15mpg in the city and about 13 towing.
    However a business associate gave me a bottle
    of fuel additive to try.
    W O W :p FIRSTLY On a trip to Jackson
    (to fish of course) i averaged 20.36 mpg
    Sunday I towed up to Knox and averaged
    15.31 mpg. sounds pretty good huh?
    in case youre interested.

    This has been a public service announcement.

    Ironically I was just listening to my wife gripe about her Trailblazer fuel economy not even 10 mins ago!

    Sound great as long is the bottle isn't $50 :D

    save about 10 bucks on a 15 dollar bottle... lol.. thats how most of that stuff is .. i dont know how much that stuff cost though..
  4. I looked it up and it costs around $15. But, this size bottle treats 144 gallons, so about a dollar for ten gallons, give or take.
  5. This stuff cost is $19.95 per bottle.
    12 oz. bottle, $1.56 per oz.
    2 oz per tank of fuel. $3.12 per treatment.

    Cost $3.12 per tank
    up to 4 miles more per gallon
    burn 16 gallons, get 64 more miles per tank
    64 miles = 3+ gal. savings
    3 gals. cost @ 2.94 per gal. = $8.82

    SO, 1 treatment cost $3.12
    savings $8.82
    Difference true savings = $5.70 per tank

    bottle cost $19.95
    6 treatments savings @ $5.70 = $40.20
    actual savings $20.25

    Buy 4 new crank baits :D


  6. how would this possibly work? I do not believe in it. It there was such a easy way to improve gas consumption, it would have been added to gas everywhere as a government standard.

    btw my ford escort makes 37 mpg :)
  7. Great reply capt-hook. Wonder what effect the additional power generated will have on the overall life of the vehicle's engine. As always: you don't get something for nothing.
  8. Haven't you learned how our government works yet? lol Hell, they made carburators that got boocho mpg 50 years ago but they quickly disappeared.They still don't care if Detroit keeps building 400 hp family cars. Displacement on demand...ya, right! We'll continue to get hosed at the pumps, the oil company's will continue to get richer, and pockets in Washington will continue to get lined. The great American way. Do I sound like a pessimist????????????????????
  9. Does it come with a set of Splitfire spark plugs and air hog air filter :)
  10. Is This In The Aisle That Sells Snake Oil?

    the tornado fuel saver.
  12. It has been in use since 1985 as a retail after market
    fuel conditioner. optimizes the combution process.
    Decreases emmissions, controls combustion chamber
    deposits from unburned fuel and detergent additives.
    Also sold as Harley DavidsonGenuine Fuel additive.

    Could go on but hate to use the space.

    Hey guys, don't knock it until you try it. I've been using a similar product for over 10 years. I notice an improvement of over 10% in my MPG. I've used it now in 3 Dodge PU's and a Chevy PU. My results were better in the Dodges, but the Chevy got better mileage right from the start. Even so, it still works out to a decent dollar savings or "return on investment". I enjoy a laugh as much as anyone, but it looks like the Cap't and me are the only ones laughing all the way to the bank.

    BTW, I use it in my boat too and it's a little difficult to measure mpg out on the water but my spark plugs sure come out clean when I change them.
  17. So what is the name of the product you use? I took a look yesterday in the Wal Mart auto section. I know they are not nearly as well stocked as an auto store but I didn't see anything that seemed to fit the bill.

    Okay, capn crunch, lets face the truth here. The stuff you are selling is made by that glorified pyramid scheme known as Scamway, er, Amway. You are simply taking advantage of current gas prices to peddle your stuff. Is there a reason you didn't come right out in your first post and say that your snake oil is made by Amway? Of course there is. You are following the standard Amway operating procedure. Then there are the other amway catphrases in your posts, such as: "business associate" which translates into "another guy selling Amway junk" and "you must have piles of money" which translates into "I want to make a bunch of money off of you anyway I can". When people hear Amway, they usually run away fast. So you are told to first generate a bunch of interest in whatever product you are selling, then try to slip in the Amway part under your breath. If you say it at all.

    Salesmen should at least be honest.
  19. LOL,I was wondering if anyone else would do a search on it,I came up with the same thing yesterday,but I was trying to be nice in my post.I do agree though Amway is a pyramid scaming company. ;) Oh almost forgot the snake oil part :D

    Send me a ml or two and I'll analyze it and tell you exactly what it is. Probably pure methanol that you can buy at Ace Hardware or Lowes for dirt cheap.
    Beware of putting that stuff in your tank. It eats gaskets and other rubber parts alive.
