Like demarpaint I am done at this post. I have been proactive and I think the attacks that may well have been coming may not come right away.

But if somebody attacks me personally because of my age, because of what news program I watch (free country), or other personal reasons I will notify moderators.

There should be discussion at this website but not personal attacks.

Can we get back to your Maserati/Ferrari/Bugati purchase? I forgot exactly which one you were contemplating but apparently you have not yet purchased it. Or were you putting us on?

As usual in additive threads, there isn't much to get back to. So far it has consisted of:

Quote:
it has been about 1000 miles and fuel mileage is now 19.3 mpg [was 19.1]

this is not scientific

engine seems smoother but that does not mean much

not sure if i would buy it again

What part of that are we getting back to?

The reports from the OP who used it and started the thread to share his experience? Assuming he would even want to update his thread, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't given the reception.

Fireman1073, welcome to the forum and welcome to the foxhole. I appreciated you posting your initial experience and eager to hear your follow up, if any. There are some good posters here with a wealth of experience with additives so it has been a good resource for me over the years. I found a few products I use that work well.

All the best. I can send you my bullet-proof vest and Kevlar Helmut if you decide to post again. I have 66 posts in 7 years so I have kept my head down and don't need them. :-)

Back to clandestine mode...

I currently have the Archoil 9100 in my old truck. My reason for usage was to try and lower emission levels, which it did to some degree(with both 9100 in oil and 6200 in gas). However, on all other claims I can't say I have noticed anything else. Truck runs well(as it did before), gets terrible mpg(as it did before).

If I was truly going to run mpg numbers though, I wouldn't use this truck. I just don't drive it enough. Not sure I would want to try it in the Mazda or Honda, but would share my observations if I do. Trying Ceratec in the truck on the next OCI.

Can you tell us how that was measured?

Not good enough for me! You should have used a turboencabulator (or a retroencabulator for an n/a truck).

Well, I was only asking. I assumed you were using your annual emissions test results but I didn't know - hence my question.

By your response I can only conclude there was no method? One makes a claim so you expect there was a reason, but maybe not.

The one who made the claim hasn't responded yet smile

PA emission testing is either pass or fail. Both visual and functional inspection.

I wanted to add, that for my model year and where I live, the above is valid. (Just an OBD test and gas cap check and things like "Does he have cats installed?" The 1994 I once had was a bit more extensive. smile
