Pro-Ma GT5 Plus Concentrated Gasoline Treatment


Anybody ever heard of this stuff before?

My CAD teacher sells this fuel additive and I thought what hell why not? started using it 2 weeks ago, took awhile but once it started working I could feel the difference. My idle was smoother and it felt more powerful. I put some in my friend's 94 Toyota corolla, the next day he told me he could feel the difference. So I used it again on my next tank, felt the power again after about 40 miles but with no change in mpg. Then my other friend wanted to try it in his 03 Mazda protege and he felt the difference as well and now calls it "Car Crack". I refilled yesterday and usually Iíve go about 50ish miles on a quarter of a tank (before lift and tires it was around 60ish miles), well now I've used alittle over a quarter of a tank and I've gone 94.5 miles. My CAD teacher said it would about the 3rd or fourth tank before I notice a difference and well I really want to fill it up now to figure out exactly what MPG I'm looking at. But I realize there are several factors that could come into play as well. Last week I changed my oil to a synthetic blend but it did not change my last mpg which was around 16.7mpg. Iím also driving without the AC on but with the windows open cause the weather has been great but that drag should hurt not help. BTW I have not changed my driving habits cause I dont wanna.

So yeah I recommend this stuff to everyone though hopefully you can find it cheaper as it cost me $18 for one 500ml bottle and it take 1oz per 10 gallons.
Unless this is some how hurting my engine and yeah that would suck.

Ill report back with my MPG soon.

no sadly only 1/2 the time I was driving the way I always drive, while the other half I drove simi-normal-person driving, mostly because the cops have been out in full force for some reason and I did not want to give them a reason to pull me over,,

Im going to try to keep it under 2-2.5k rpm from now on to see what mpg I can achieve as 20mpg is the best this little truck has ever done, even stock the best I could get was 19mpg,,

I looked at the above site but only was able to find there PT5 product. I cannot find anything on the GT5. Is it possible you could ask your teacher the difference between the two? Also, how could I purchase some to try?
