I figure because of the cost

I figure because of the cost of this stuff, we would have to get atleast a 12% average increase in MPG's to be getting our money out of this...
I am anxious to see some average numbers pop up on this one...

I concur...based on what

I concur...based on what people are saying and the company's claims, I figure I won't be out any money. If, and I mean skeptic if, it really improves idle and driveability, it might be worth continuing. Or they could adjust their price a couple bucks and make it a no brainer.

*bump* I contacted FFT

...and he says:
"FFT does contain a bunch of citrus. It is primarily there to dilute my active ingredient. Citrus is natural, organic and renewable - so what could be bad about that? The rest of the product is a 'catalyst' and activators. There is nothing I'm aware of that can harm 02 sensors and catalysts."

Davens, we're all interested in your specific results with this stuff:

-Engine type/liter
-Year vehicle
-MPG per fillup

This in my 2002 Mazda

This in my 2002 Mazda Protege
It's got a 5sp 2.0 liter engine
I normally get 26-32 mpg and have managed a personal best of 36mpg.

Let me finish this second tank(another 2-3 days) and I'll post some results.

First tank 31.xx mpg...drove

First tank 31.xx mpg...drove pretty aggressively.
Second tank 35.85...drove normally, not too conservatively. Nearly ties my previous personal best.

Next tank will be the ultra mpg focused style of driving

Modified my driving to be

Modified my driving to be fuel conscious...managed 37.21.

My observations so far...it doesn't help that much when driving fuel conscious but it makes a bigger difference when driving more aggressively.

Now that gas is down around $2.20/gal locally, this stuff loses its appeal.
If you need to squeeze out a couple more mpg, it does the trick. But is it worth the price/hassle...debateable.

I'm going to finish out the bottle (another 6-8 fill ups and will report back if anything different pops up.

Well, compared to you 26.32

Well, compared to you 26.32 that's pretty good. What do you consider driving fuel concious?

Shift by 3k rpm, no WOT, sub

Shift by 3k rpm, no WOT, sub 65mph, lots of coasting.
I know 65 is not the most fuel economical, but the stretch of road I live on considers 75-80mph the flow of traffic. 55 is outright dangerous.

I live right off the Interstate in "rural" Texas...a trip anywhere involves a 16+ mile trip at freeway speeds so I estimate 80-90% freeway usage.

...and thats 26-32, not 26.32.
If I flail on it and spend a lot of time in traffic, or stop and go, it'll drop to mid-to-high twenties.
I normally get low 30s.

FFT...really does work!

Hi Guys, just saw your forum and decided to toss in my two-cents-worth. I have been using FFT in my 2000 Saturn SL-2(AUTO TRAN, AC) since September 05. My milage used to run a steady 32MPG(mostly highway 65MPH)now it gets 35MPG and my car runs much smoother.
I decided to try driving w/o FFT a couple weeks ago and I only got 33MPG, there was probably still some FFT in the system as I didn't run the vehicle out of gas first. As for what is in FFT, I took a little trip to the virtual US Patent office and looked up their patent number from the FFT website. Here is a link that has the entire composition: http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?u=/netahtml/srchnum.htm&Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&r=1&l=50&f =G&d=PALL&s1=6858047.WKU.&OS=PN/6858047&RS=PN/6858047 LOL nice and short! Very interesting thread guys, keep up the good work!

Hey there, welcome to the

Hey there, welcome to the site, that's like an 8 or 9% improvement, pretty good! Saturns and Hondas seem to dominate this site, :-)
