Running full synthetic oil like royal purple or equivalent is stated to reduce friction even more which translates into better fuel economy.... But the savings (if any) on fuel is going straight into paying the extra on the synthetic oil... So your not saving anything.




And those fuel line magnets are a joke man. They are supposed to "align" the molecules so they burn better? Really? Lol I don't think so

Try using a tornado on a drill to mix your dip. It makes the chips work sooo much better.They really slide through the RPM's.

I believe you meant acetone .

NO additive in your tank will boost power .No additive will boost mileage.
The term for all those 'products' that carry claims to do so is called "snake oil".
Keep your vehicle well maintained , and drive it like a sane individual , and you will get what you can out of it.

Another tip, use magnets on your dip line going to your chips.... it separates the molecules and makes the dip flow easier so it gets more dip there in less time.

IM GONA TRY TO NOT LAUGH CAUSE YOU DONT KNOW WHAT TOLUENE IS...BEING IT IS ALREADY IN GAS, ACETONE WILL EAT UP PLASTIC LINES ALSO I DIDNT MEAN ACETONE AND ADDITIVES DO WORK

Toluene can be used as an octane booster in gasoline fuels used in internal combustion engines. Toluene at 86% by volume fueled all the turbo Formula 1 teams in the 1980s, first pioneered by the Honda team. The remaining 14% was a "filler" of n-heptane, to reduce the octane to meet Formula 1 fuel restrictions. Toluene at 100% can be used as a fuel for both two-stroke and four-stroke engines

WHY DOES EVRYONE WANA BE A SMARTA$$? ITS OK THAT YOU DONT HAVE A ANSWER UNLESS YOU HAVE UNDISPUTABLE PROOF WHY BASH SOMETHING? OPEN UP YOUR MIND

my reason for useing the marbel mystery oil is as a secondary lubricant similar to a diesel it cleans very well i also tried strong magnets but saw nothing but i left them in place even though i dont believe they work period. the tornado i have actually hurt gas mileage while i do make a home brew octane booster i still listen to others and try not to be closed minded.....................what works 4 me might not work 4 u
