Hi Chris, and welcome to the

Hi Chris, and welcome to the site. I sure hope you're not just making one post and then vanishing, as we can always use input and more users.

About your product, I have a few problems right off the bat. Being as how I live in the Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) capital of the world (Utah) I'm instantly turned off by any product that relies on MLM to sell it's product.

A quick search on the internet finds that I'm not the only one who shares this skepticism.

If you are, however, convinced that your product actually works, I'd recommend that you offer to sell some at cost to members of this website who will then test your product to determine if it really does benefit fuel economy.

I'm personally very skeptical, but IMHO skepticism is very needed when dealing with fuel saving technologies.

Yes, I too am skeptical. I have already tested similar products in tablet form that claim to reduce excess gas. One was called Gas-X and the other was called Mylanta Gas Relief. I placed the prescribed dosage in my gas tank and the change to my MPG was statistically insignificant.

That being said, I don't want to be closed minded about this product. I will volunteer to test it. I just need to know, do you grind ip the tablets before putting into your gas tank or do just shove it through the fuel nozzle hole?

Dude, you're messing with the wrong site

Well Mr. De Marco, you happened to have chosen one of the most scientifically-based fuel economy forums. We need real data by a third party, or test it ourselves -- testimonials are hearsay. We report the data and the users decide. If the product works, then you would have no problem with independent, empirical testing. Otherwise, we can smell a scam from a mile away.

I ain't paying money for

I ain't paying money for nothing. All my gas saving stuff is proven. If somebody wants me to experiment their product it's either proven or if it's not they give me the product to test it out to prove it for free.

35% is a lot.

Agreed. I call BS unless you back up your claim with some results, Mr. DeMarco.

This **** is on eBay. I,

This **** is on eBay. I, myself, am questioning whether this pill will DISSOLVE in the tank fully. Hrm...

Lets hear a vote: I am willing to spend $20 to debunk this. You guys think I should? If it turns out negative, my negative results will be searchable by google, filling my need to warn others of possible scams. I'm keeping watch for cheap low count sets of them pills on eBay. I think 6 treated tanks will yield results to go yay or nay.

The first test will be videotaped: It will show the pill dissolving in gasoline while I gently stir the mixture.

Second (if it does indeed perfectly dissolve) will be the actual vehicle mileage results strictly adhering to the product instructions

I will log all this and the weekly weather averages in the gaslog. And, if requested, the previous year mpg and weather averages too.
The weather will be warming here shortly. Kind of a bad time to test right now...but I do have last years data to compare to..
