Hello,
One fuel additive has been tested under the SAE J1321 II and achieved a 13% increase in economy while reducing Nox emissions by 40+%(EPA 511 tests). The are no metallic additives or naphathalene. I have been using it for several months now and have had good results.

Junior Damato, by your letter, I have to assume that you are not familiar with Dipetane. I do not sell or recieve any compensation from Dipetane, but I have used this for over three years with consistent results in three trucks and my boat, and we have definetly increased our MPG from 10 - 13% depending on the vehicle, with both Diesel and gasoline engines. Dipetane technically does not qualify as an additive as their is nothing in Dipetane that is not already in the fuel itself. 18 years of Testing by Coca Cola has shown not only the fuel savings, and 4-5 more years from service fleet engines. see www.dipetaneusa.com I am so convinced that this works that no one could talk me out of using it. Not too mention that BIOSOY LOWNOX, the only biodiesel fuel proven to reduce NOx and increase mpg has dipetane in the fuel. I encourage you to review the information, but more importantly, keep an open mind and try it for your self.

Since Dipetane has nothing in it that the fuel does not already have, what is so special when you say BIOSOY LOWNOX has Dipetane in it? In reality all fuel has Depetane in it!! Also if you take a given quanity of fuel and add a percentage of anything that burns to it of course you are going to get at least the same percentage of increase in your MPG. If you can prove that you can take a quart of fuel away from a given quantity of fuel and replace it with same quantity of Dipetane and then get a 10% increase in MPG I will be interested. But only if the cost of the Dipetane does not increase the cost of the fuel and its additive more then 10%.

If you really wqant the facts, contact me. I'm the manufacturer. First of all few products can successfully complete the SAE J1321/TMC Type II Fuel Comsumptin Test. Dipetane did. The 3 rd party engineers also calced on chasis dynos a 32% reduction in blow-by and a 4% increase in HP. Dipetane is oil that has a rearranged molecular string. This testing has been vetted by the leading technical people within the trucking industry.
So save the "they just want to squeeze oney out people" line for the many products that will not subject themselves to the stringent testint of the SAE/TMC protocol.
And why is there now a push by members of Congress of have Dipetane pursued by the DOD and DOE? contact me via dipetanenortheast.com and I'll be happy to share with you the facts, not antidotal stories.

What engines does your jeep have? We've seen Jeeps w/ the hemi get over 10%(and in a couple of cases 15%) fuel savings when Dipetane is used.

FPC will help your vehicle get more power out of the fuel and more power can mean more miles per gallon if driving conditions are uniform. It burns more of the fuel that would end up getting sent out of the tailpipe so about 5-11% improvment. You can find it at www.fpc1.com .

The best way to increase your gas mileage is to first walk around your car three times. No more no less.
After starting the car first thing to do is turn off the radio and heater to eliminate fuel usage.
Then put the car in N for a second before putting it into R or D.

It will increase your gas mileage about 10% according to a goverment military testing.

$There is a fuel additive that actually delivers what it advertises. It's called Green Fuel Tabs. It was initially designed 10 years ago to strictly reduce emmissions which it does by up to 75%. A bi-product happened to be 10% to 20% better mileage. It has been in use in 7 other countries for over 10 years and has no complaints or claims against it on the internet.(Shocking). To order Green Fuel Tabs go to www.gljgroup.com and click on the Green Fuel Tabs link. I use it in my '08 Chevy Silverado which has over 65,000 miles on it and I have had about a 12% improvement after using 1 pack of 5 20 gallon tabs which cost 13 dollars. Do the math, it's money in the bank. Before using the tabs, be sure you have an accurate base line established which can usually be done by tracking your mileage over 3 tanks of gas. If you already track your mileage you can start saving now. This product is no joke! It was just tested by one of the largest oil companies in the U.S. and they said, "Green Fuel Tabs has performed higher if not the highest of any fuel addative they have ever tested". Hope this helps! For additional information email [email protected]
