Default anyone try Xtreme fuel treatment?

One of my Car audio guru friends just started talking about how this stuff really works. Him being a Car AUDIO guy, I'm not sure how much optimism to put into this stuff.

Anyone try xtreme fuel treatment? Their video is rather good

http://completemobilexft.mysyntek.co...d7TfE.facebook

its supposedly proven to pay for itsself like twice... I wonder what the actual benefits are?

XFT contains a compound which makes your fuel ignite quicker in your engine - creating a longer, better burn of the fuel. This means that you actually burn more of the injected fuel- whereas most vehicles waste a good portion of unused fuel as exhaust. By Using XFT, you get more efficiency out of the fuel that you already use.
1 You will go farther on a tank of fuel. Based on hundreds of tests and user feedback, XFT can save you between 7% and 20% on your fuel costs - Gasoline (Petrol) or Diesel. A 150 gallon (570 Litre) tank of fuel at a 12% savings would save 18 gallons (69 Litres) per fill-up. Do the math. And many are saving much more than that!

2 By altering the burn-rate of your fuel (and other fuel improvements) XFT makes even low grade fuel behave like high-quality or premium fuels, eliminating the need for higher octane or other more expensive fuel.
2 You no longer have to use mid-grade or premium fuel in your gasoline (petrol) vehicle, even in high-performance engines. That will save you another 3% - 5% on your Gasoline (Petrol) costs right at the pump.

3 XFT uses a combination of ingredients -- Detergents, Demulsifiers, Rust & Corrosion Inhibitors, Lubricating Agents, and Polymerization Retardants. All these work together to keep things clean, remove existing deposits, reduce friction, stop water damage, which keeps your engine & fuel system working and running smoothly.
3 Your vehicle will run longer and smoother, without all the problems that come with a dirty, sludge-filled, corroding, sluggish, polluting engine. This will save you money on unneeded repairs and allow your current vehicle engine to last you much, much longer, eliminating the need to replace or repair the engine nearly as often.

4 By using more of the available fuel, and improving the combustion process in the engine You have less harmful emissions produced and coming out as exhaust. XFT is proven to reduce your harmful emissions substantially. Some tests show over 40% reduction in Hydrocarbons and Carbon Monoxide emissions.
4 This can save you money when it comes to emissions inspections or tune-ups. XFT is also very good for the environment and is a way for your company to become more “green” without changing how you do business.

5 Petroleum based fuel will separate and lose its efficiencies rather quickly. One great feature of XFT is that it acts as a super-effective fuel stabilizer, allowing your fuel to be stored for years without going bad.
5 You no longer have to empty or replace the fuel that sits in storage tanks or seasonal equipment such as recreational vehicles, boats, lawn mowers, and storage tanks. That can also save you a substantial amount of money..

6 Xtreme Fuel Treatment is very concentrated. It only takes 1 ounce (30mL) to treat 80 Gallons (300 L) of fuel.
6 XFT is very inexpensive and you no longer need other fuel additives designed to lubricate, clean, stabilize or do the other things that XFT does. If you were to buy store-bought additives to accomplish the same things, you would put multiple bottles of products in your tank and spend about 20 times more money.



These are some pretty big claims...

It it was that wonderful it would already be a fuel additive. Read up on what makes premium fuel different and you will see why it is needed in high compression and FI engines and why the way the product is described does not make sense.

Anyone see a problem with that statement, especially with a timing sensitive turbocharged engine? If the claims of the product are true, it not only is worthless, its potentially engine destroying...

its a bit contradictory

ethanol for instance burn quicker, which is its foundation in efficiency

One of my friends gave me some of this stuff a while back and I actually use it all the time now. I thought he was full of crap too when he first told me about it, but it brought my work van from 11.8 mpg to 13.6 mpg after just the first month, break that down...

11.8 x 20 gal = 236 miles
13.6 x 20 gal = 272 miles (36 extra miles)

36 miles / 11.8 origional millage = 3.05 gallons worth of extra millage

The treatment is about $3.50 per 20 gal (if you get the 2 oz, 8 treatment bottle), but im getting 3 extra gallons worth of millage, which means even after cost of treatment, im still saving money so I use it on everything now, my car, the wifes car, the lawn mowers (good for the lubrication and fuel stablizing).

All the negitive comments Ive seen havent actually shown any negitive results, any one here actually try it and not have good results?

well I'm working on my baseline numbers. I'm currently getting 24.9 MPG on my 03 2.5rs. BUT I am running 10w30 right now. I'm gonna switch back to 5w30 and get another baseline before I try running the XFT.
