FUEL ADDITIVES: Pills, liquids etc. Are these for real or just more SCAMS?

Waver,

Didn’t we just do the very same thing with the scam LifeWave patches?

Every time a point about the patches was raised you gave a link to a flashy website presentation. But, what does the flash actually prove about anything?

The whole point about any of these “miracle” products is to look beyond the hype, isn’t it?

Do you always believe what you are told without question, unless it questions what you believe?

This time, have you done your thorough due diligence?

Keep it comin’


While we ‘re giving out links here’s one, courtesy of CMG.

“CARBURETOR ADJUSTMENT
On some models, there will be a change in the performance/idle (pinging, roughness etc.) after the Stabilization Period. This is an indication the Fuel Energizer is working and that the carburetor will require a simple fuel/air mixture adjustment for a lifetime of savings.”

From one of the many websites out there.

So, I wonder how they intend to cope with the computer/oxygen sensor feedback system automatically adjusting fuel/air mixture on all modern cars already?

Salt is a great fuel additive.

Sugar too…. tongue wink

Ethos websites.

You may have seen some Ethos websites using oil company logos in a way to imply that the companies endorse the product.

Here is BP’s reply to a question I asked them about such use of their logo.

“Thank you for your recent email to BP Alternative Energy.

BP does not endorse the products represented on this site and your email
has been forwarded to our trade marks colleagues for their action.

Many thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Regards,

BP Alternative Energy”

Let’s be quite clear about this; putting sugar in your gas tank will ruin your engine!

It’s sugar alcohol that is the alternative fuel to gasoline, so you have to remember to add yeast as well!

Even though sugar will ruin you engine, it will make a tank of gas last a long time because your engine will not be burning it.

I presume your news about Bioperformance is supposed to imply that your magic potion is even more brilliant?
