I swear I don't want to beat down a product i haven't tried but I would keep searching. This looks like some bogus stuff.

Remember,there once was an ad for a wax product that made your vehicle invisible to police radar in a major car mag (C/D or MT)....the ad was later pulled and the feds got involved,because the product didnt even exist.The guy was taking orders and going to use the funds to hire a chemist to develop the product....so he claimed. Just goes to show,buying an ad doesnt mean its 100% legit or any good.Heck,someone could place an ad for the new 2013 Edsel coming out (it isnt),that is if Ford wouldnt sue them first.

"Atomic Metal Conditioner"

Sounds like an ad from the '50s...

Hey, it contains the ingredient "Revitalizant"!! Wow, that is amazing stuff with no research reports ever written about it anywhere, so it must be super-secret and wonderful.

Perhaps also, since its atomic.... you can see it in the dark, allowing one to check the dipstick without a flashlight. Now, that would be useful, surprised it was left out of the ad.

Invented by P.T. Barnum, perhaps??

Atomic means atoms not radioactive and glowing


If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

I didn't think the TUV had any kind of certification process for Russian snake oils.

I tried the stuff a few years ago on a 700 mile road trip.

After thirty miles on non-mountainous terrain my mpg readout went from 27 to 33. I took a photo of the display, I'll have to dig around for it.

That 33 mpg lasted for about twenty minutes then resumed the original 27 mpg. The car seemed to run the same as before.


I like it cheep.

Since the bus ride with the chaps he is not only the expert on additives but is now jockeying for resident BITOG UOA, oil and filter expert.
Maybe he will chime in and enlighten us with his über expert opinion. crackmeup
