None of which are statistics about Tufoil of course.

Wow, according to their FAQ, Tufoil can even cure a warped block. Amazing!

Winter no A/C i get 35-40 miles a gallon. used up a lot of other parts but motor is still good and strong. I accredit it to Tuffoil. There was a noticeable smoothness in the motor when it was first added. Got so use to it I can not tell a difference anymore. You should give it a try it Does what it says it does, Also used it in My Manual transmission which is original also. Your oil analysis will be good!!!

Maybe not statics but good ole facts. You can skew statics any way you want(example look at Obama!) if you are ever in or near San Antonio, Texas I can arrange a meeting for you and my Honda to check out what I am saying for yourself.

One of the many posts that steered me into using it.

This post is about Tufoil Trajan. And you forgot to include that I stopped using Auto-RX years ago and I gave my last two bottles away to another guy here at bobistheoilguy.com.

I don't see any "good ole" facts about it in your post either. Longevity? It's a Honda. What correlations do you see between the additive and your driving success? Even if I did come there, what would I see that would show me that Tufoil was effective?

And Texas? It says you live in Thailand. Which is it?

I don't see why anybody, if they are in Texas, needs to say they are in Thailand. Seems to me if you are in Texas and you just say Texas, Texas is plenty large.

Anyway, the post was about Tufoil and I stopped using Tufoil several years ago. Tufoil seemed to help a used Toyota Corolla station wagon I used to own. It ran good but it rattled a little on start up and the Tufoil seemed to stop that. I probably would have been as well off if I had just used some cheap 20W50 oil (in the summertime). Tufoil was thick stuff.

I was willing to try Tufoil because even Popular Mechanics Magazine had a positive article about it.

Many years ago I had a Ford Escort that had a real tired motor it was real hard starting due to low compression and when it would start it would rattle and shake something terrible esp in the winter. For kicks I tried Tufoil and it made a world of difference it started much quicker and the engine made little noise I drove that car for two more years with Tufoil added every oil change and I felt it was worth it.

In 1995 a friend owned a Nissan Hardbody pick up that had about 90,000 hard miles on it he owned it since new and he was not good about taking care of it he would let his oil changes go way too long and did not care so much about general maintenance. The truck developed this loud "knock" that we had no idea what it was but it did not seem to go away so for kicks we added 8oz of Tufoil a few days later he came by and said listen! .. The Knock was gone! .. He drove that truck for 9 more years and 312,000 miles adding Tufoil every oil change.

I have used it since the 80's in everything known to man.
I still use it and never had an engine related failure.
I will say that it does work and creates no harm but todays oil as gotten so sophisticated the Tufoil results are not as great as they were back in the conventional oil days. I have 30 years experience with it and I became a distributor of it to get the pricing down for my own use.

I still use it in tractors, mowers, etc.
However when I use a high grade synthetic motor oil, I no longer add it. I figure I'm diluting a high end product that does not require it.

You feel, but you have no proof and thus your arguments are void.

Be sure to use an oil filter with holes big enough not to trap the stuff in the first pass. And, ignore what Dupont said. What do they know.
