Default Gas is killer expensive

I just thought I'd let you guys in on a secret that I use to save $$$ on gas. I am not scamming a product in anyway, I'm just simply telling you guys what has worked for me and how to get it.

Before I bought my bonneville I drove a 95 Buick Lesabre. the series 1 L36.

I used my trip set and on 50 litres of gas I went around 360 kilometers. Considering it costs me $50-$60 for 50 litres of gas I started to look for a way to save money on gas that did not result in driving less :P

I found this product because my parents started using it. Its called an MPG cap, from a company called Fuel Freedom International. They're in over 150 different countries and I did all my reserach before I even considered sticking a pill in my gas tank.

What I found out was that the MPG cap is a Combustion Catalyst, that will not harm your engine (EPA Registered) which accelerates the combustion cycle, increasing fuel efficecy and reducing emmsions.

Anyways I checked into the product and decided to use it. After 2 tanks of gas using this pill (the conditioning tanks ie removes carbon build up) I started to notice a slight increase in my acceleration and about 5km difference. But by the 3rd tank of gas when I was able to go 440 kilomteres to 49 litres of fuel!

Thats an 80km difference with the use of a $2 pill!

Here is an animated video showing exactly how the products works.

If any of you guys are interested but would like to find out more information on how the product works you can visit this website. The MPG cap also works in diesel fuel as well.

If you have 0 questions and would like to order some to try-out in your car you can purchase some here. There is also detailed test results and reports on this website for sceptics.

They also have a waterless car wash which I use for my detailing business. The car wash is silicone free incase any of you are wondering. Here'* a before and after pick from my buick. Not only did I use it on the car itself, but I used it on the rims, and I used the dirty rag on all the windows.

You can view a video on how to use the waterless car wash at this website

That is a scam and has been proven to be bunko. The FTC in the US is going after those scum right now.


You might as well dump your cash in the tank for all the good that pill does.

Quote:
AAA saw no improvement while driving at 34 mph and just a 4 percent increase in mileage at 65 mph.

The company recommended a bigger dose, but when AAA used four pills in the tank, it didn't make a difference.

"I didn't see anything approaching any of the claims for 10 [percent], 20 [percent] or 30 percent improvement in mileage," said Tom McLaughlin of AAA.

The company suggested McLaughlin might have to burn several tanks of gas before the pill kicked in. Fuel Freedom International did not return "Good Morning America'*" calls for comment.
4% is normal variation trip to trip.

Exactly! I have a friend who started a business selling those things for like $350.00 each and they did nothing. He claimed it worked but I said whatever.

Not again.

Until I see at least one independent test, it is B.*. Independent means not funded by anyone associated with the product.

B97SSEi,

Even if anyone actually WANTED any of that junk, you are not authorized to sell product on this Forum without prior authorization from an Admin.

You will not get authorization for snake oil sales on this Forum, and I would hope you would fully research it and re-evaluate your own decision to sell this product from a MORAL standpoint.

This applies if I understand correctly that you are offering this product for sale.

wow. Looks like one of those just-under-the-radar pyramid schemes. http://mpgfreedom.com/

Reminds me of the one one of my "Friends" just tried to get me to join. http://www.quixtar.com/ is the one he wanted me to.

They are all the same deal basically. a small percentage is taken from each sale and there is a "franchiese" fee of some sort. They are only legal because they don't charge a joining fee like amway used to (notice this one has a "setup" fee for the website)

I spent a little time researching the other one and learn a little bit about them.


Oooh... and the steps for the waterless car wash:

Quote:
It’* as Easy as 1, 2, 3

1. Apply ECO-SHEEN™ directly to your vehicle

2. Spray it on evenly; right over the dirt, grime or marks

3. Polish off with a soft dry cloth or towel
and in the pictures there is water under your car in the first one, but by the "final" one, there is no water and it'* completely dry. Just an observation.

Oh yeah, and the car isn't even in the same spot from the before and after pictures, as evident by the location of the front and rear tires with respects to the lines of the concrete. The car is back 6-10" and is towards the house about 6-10". The second two show this pretty well...

You guys are all right about that car, I did use a pressure washer, in the wheel wells to remove all the harden on mud and clay, and in the engine bay.

You can tell from the picture that the product works because if I had actually used a presure washer to wash the whole car, the ground around the car would still be wet in the after pics.

And yes the car is in a different place in the after pics. I moved it to spray the mud out of the driveway .

As for the independent test please view these video on youtube.

It has been proven by many different independet tests that they do work, and it is EPA registered which it could not be if it would harm your vehicle.

As for having the authorization to share this incredible device I wasn't aware that I needed it for this forum and I am very sorry. I really enjoy this site and I have already found many useful tips and information that has helped me tons with my new bonneville.

You will not be given authorization to sell that BS here on this Forum. YouTube isn't any credible source of information.

Check the links I posted above.

This product is proven to be BUNKO by independent and Government sources. It will not be sold to our members on this Forum.
