    Hi everyone,

    My friend new that I want to be trucker and he works with some company which offer gas tabs for cars and trucks.
    He sent me “case study” of it.
    Looks like California Trucking saved over $ 12 000 within a month on diesel.
    Kroger Foods and Checker Taxi increased 12% - 15% the mileage.

    They also should reduce 10% engine temperature and reduce emissions up to 50%, eliminate carbon build-up.

    I am very interested in that. Anybody up there is using them?

    They look like small black pills, cost $ 1 each and dissolve in diesel or gasoline before finish fueling.

    He said, that my total saving on fueling my truck could be big, up to 30% possibly.

    What do you think?

    Frank

    One pill makes you larger. And one pill makes you small. And the ones that mother gives you. Don't do anything at all. Go ask Alice.

    You can bet if you drop one into these new engines that if you even pump the wrong fuel into it will void the warranty but add a few "pills" that dissolve into some chemical that probably has not passed the engines manufactures test it might do the same thing and kill the warranty!

    Sounds about as good as those tube things with a magnetized body from a couple of years ago that sold for $150- $300 that the suckers that bought them after being told that it has to be a scam started reporting 8miles to the gallon + because they didn't want to look like the fool they were thinking some little 6" long part that screwed into the fuel line was going to improve the fuel mileage!

    The ONLY way to improve your fuel mileage is to maximize drive, no idle at all. Buy an APU. But that means if the door opens the engine should be shut down. Coast down hills NOT recommended but have seen it!

    But there is no wondrous magical device that is attached to or poured into the engine that's going to improve fuel mileage over what the manufacturer of the engine documents in the layout for it.

    These ripoffs come out and the people who buy this crap fall for the "easy way" out. I think I'll go ahead and sell this BS detector device starting next month as the one God built into many peoples brains weren't activated or they don't under stand how it works or what it's warning them about!

    You really want to save fuel? Stop red lining the engine when you shift. An average engine should not need to operate any lower than 1300 rpm to 1700 rpm. At 1300 downshift, at 1700 upshift. Most engines prefer to work at 1500 rpm.

    Next best way to save fuel is to slow the freak down! Stop trying to keep up with the super truckers and the nutso 4 wheelers that go screaming past you.
