premixed

I wonder if you let the pills sit in a jar of gas if they would react and work sooner than the "4 tanks" to see a result. Got to wonder what is going on there with it taking so long to show a result. Ya know that platinum additives act as a catalist and there was a gas additive using a platinum mixture that I saw at Walmart a really long time ago.

Oh yeah and anything that disolves in gas will precipitate out when the gas is gone - maybe this stuff coats the cylinders and pistons.

My concern

My concern is that the chemical composition may not be safe for fuel lines, filters, internals, etc. Like E85 -- it's so corrosive, all of the internals of the engine need to be treated so it doesn't corrode the crap out of it and clog-up the CAT...etc.

you guys want to save money

you guys want to save money on gas there are plenty of things that will work. I should make a thread that says what works for sure. If we stop going back and forth and start to finally do some stuff then everybody will gain a few mpgs.

We're all aware of what works, Compaq.

The purpose of this site is to discuss new ideas, and the scientifically test those ideas. The "back and forth" banter is actually how things get done.

RH77, They claim this pill

RH77,

They claim this pill is totally non-reactive and biodegradable. It's also non-corrosive and being so it conforms to the shipping companys like UPS's rules and regulations. I'm pretty sure that thats one reason they don't offer this in liquid form. Strange product tho.

Nortonpro, if you wanna be

Nortonpro, if you wanna be the guinea pig that bites the pig sized bullet, then by all means. I think these additives deserve the most attention because they are what divert the general public from realizing any real advances in gas mileage.

Agreed. Nortonpro, start up a thread in the experiments section and we'll get it moving. This type of thing would be great for future reference.

I seriously don't think they

I seriously don't think they will be a difference.

But test it if you want to. I would love to see the results.
