Ca-40g

So has anybody tried this stuff?

Lots of people appear to be claiming it's benefit. Who will be the first here to actually benchmark it??

AGREED

looks liek a stupid gimmick...

searched for CMH industries and came up with this
http://www.cmhindustries.com/

looks like the real place makes industrial switches and switch boxes... nowhere on that site does it mention anyhting about fuel additives...and the adresses are different.

btw what company uses a standard gmail account?

so in other words

SCAM!

I can't vouch for it, but consider that 'CMH Industries' does not appear to be an exclusive trademark of any one business, so don't let that be the deciding factor.

Supposedly the guys marketing this stuff are just getting off the ground with it as an independent company. I've seen far worse websites from far better trusted businesses.

whooops i edit my last remark i must a typed something wrong but it came up.

but ehh i dunno you go be the gunea pig and tell us what happens.

it just doesnt say enough about what it is to make me wanna go get it...

from the looks of it its just castor oil and calcium sulfonate. and the only tests they have published is on farm machenery, which is a constant(usually) rpm load.

so i dunno if that applies to variable rpm liek a car or not.

A google of 'calcium sulfonate fuel economy' returns enough hits to suggest that this stuff is hardly new or revolutionary. Oh well.

You aren't using very good bait... :-)

Hello -

Ed Schultz, radio host, just started schilling this stuff.

I haven't even tried acetone, so I'm not ready to drink this kool-aid (I have enough on my plate as it is).

Then again , it is only $30 to try, so that is below my $50 sucker limit. Maybe next month.

I must confess that Ed is the one who brought it to my attention. That said, I have not been able to find any conclusive testing that shows one way or the other if this stuff works - only a bunch of anecdotal stuff from farmers dumping it into their tractors.
