Testimonials, Turbos & More
We have some exciting news regarding our Max Mileage Fuel Catalyst. We’re now bottling the product ourselves in our shop in Pittsburgh. From now on we should have no trouble keeping up with demand. We can fill five bottles at a time and can produce hundreds of bottles every day. For our Canadian customers in the north, we are working on a distributor in Canada to reduce shipping costs for Canadian orders. For our customers who run through the Midwest, we have a new distributor in McPherson, KS. His name is C.D. Martin and you can call him at 417-850-2830 if you’d like to pick up a gallon from him. We will also have a smaller 16 oz. bottle, convenient for pickup trucks, available soon. The demand for the catalyst is so high, many of our customers are ordering 2, 3 or 4 gallons for their second order. We’re considering a subscription option so you can have it automatically shipped to your house every month or two, or however you’d like to set it up.
We’ve also been hearing back from many customers on their experiences using the Max Mileage Fuel Catalyst. One customer named Bill Stone from Savannah, Georgia called and told us he has a 2015 ISX with 560K miles and was experiencing a hiccup between shifts. Neither the dealers nor other shops could figure out the problem. After the first tank treated with the catalyst, the problem was gone. Most likely, it was carbon buildup in the VGT turbo that has now burned off. He also went from 6.5 to 7.5 MPG and both his engine and APU are running quieter. He also reported that his DEF usage went down by 25%.
Tom Dantona from Saint Peter, MN said, “I have a 2014 Pete 579 with a Paccar 455 MX13. The mileage was 6.4 and now, after using the Max Mileage Fuel Catalyst, it is 7.2+ after just a few fill-ups. I used to get a CHECK ENGINE light daily but have not seen it in two weeks now. DEF went from 130 mpg to well over 300 mpg (last fill was 399 mpg). No BS, why would I want to?”
Phill Pace from Carlisle, PA said, “I got the catalyst and after two trips from Harrisburg to Hazleton and a Harrisburg to Carlisle trip, I have only used a third of a tank of fuel. Usually, that run is just shy of half a tank (lots of climbing up 81). I was not expecting near instant results like that. I am expecting it to beat the computer’s estimate, as well, once I hand calculate it. But, as it looks now, my routine of refilling every two days might make it to two and a half, as it’s currently estimating I gained 1 mpg.”
Jesse Newsome from Cascade, MT said, “A friend gave me a quart of additive to try. I put it in my 1993 Chevy K2500 pickup with a 6.5 diesel. I picked up 4 mpg (from 20 mpg to 24), the idle got smoother, and the exhaust emissions are not as harsh.”
We love hearing all these amazing testimonials about our Max Mileage Fuel Catalyst product, but let’s move on to another subject – undersized turbos on CAT engines. We recently had a gentleman in the shop with a stock 3406E. He had us tune his ECM and it made 650 HP and 31 psi of boost with the stock manifold and turbo. He then had our CAT HP turbo and performance manifold installed. The boost increased to 46 psi and the horsepower increased by roughly 270. To have an efficient engine, you must let it breath. Specifically, you need to get fuel and air in and the exhaust out. If any of these three are restricted, it’s not going to be performing like it should. The stock CAT turbo and manifold are too restrictive to let the engine breath (and run) properly.
Moving on to unrelated but eye-opening news, I’m sure you’ve heard about Ford and GM ending production of their popular sedan models to instead focus on producing high riding crossovers and SUVs. It’s a real shame because cars like the Chevy Impala and Ford Taurus are actually great cars. They are stylish, have a good ride, good handling, and are both cheap to own and run.
I can’t think of a single good reason to buy a small crossover vehicle over a sedan other than that they may have slightly more interior room. Crossovers are heavier, worse handling, more expensive, less aerodynamic and use more fuel. Ford and GM are also closing American factories that made these sedans. The GM Lordstown plant in Ohio has been assembling cars since 1966, starting with the ‘66 Impala. But today, nobody wants an Impala, they’d rather buy an Equinox assembled in Canada, Mexico or China. GM and Ford obviously value profits over American jobs. But, fortunately, we all have the choice to vote with our dollars, and you can help by choosing to buy vehicles assembled in the US.
