5-15% fuel savings

Recommended Posts

I heared about a company called Grander and they are selling a fuel treatment product called Eco Kat and that product can make your car save 5-15% of fuel and in hot countries they wrote that the fuel saving can go from 5-25%.

Anyone who knows about that company can sure his comments.

With gas prices as high as they are right now, the opportunity is more ripe than ever for unsubstantiated claims about fuel additives to spew forth. I am surprised, frankly, that 100 new gasoline treatment/additive companies have not arisen in the last year or so.

A lot of fuel additives that claim to increase mileage are comprised of toluene, methyl ethyl ketone, alcohol, etc., which you can buy at home depot cheaper by the quart.

But as always, put the lawyer hat on, and to more closely examine how much of a problem the gas additive unsubstantiated claim problem goes, see the following link:

Interesting. Basically, nothing can added to fuel to improve mileage, right? It's all in the efficiency of the car itself, and the heaviness of your accelerator foot?

Well, of course, I like synthetic/semi-synthetic oil. Mobil drive clean 7500. But fuel addititives do not seem to have a proven track record.
