    Kevin said I should only buy 5,000 dollar trucks. So I don’t know if they work on a 2019. But on my 95 wia with 10 turbo 3,000’s micro blued tires and the 1200 airtabs I have I can honestly haul freight for a $1.00 per mile and I net a 1.05. Kevin has really turned my business around.

    th - 2022-11-08T125832.610.jpeg It's my understanding that it weins the diesel engine completely off of diesel fuel. Once you've run several hundred thousand gallon of this thru it, it actually doesn't need any fuel to run on. It's expensive, but Kevin is saying that not burning any fuel whatsoever in the long term is the goal. Extreme fuel savings. Same idea as the 10 turbo 3000, but doesn't require any added parts or modifications to the truck.

    So is it a flow or restriction issue then with the newer trucks? I was under the impression that the turbo3000 was installed on the suction side before the fuel pump. I honestly don't know but that would seem most logical to install it that way.
