I was wondering if anyone tried this?

A quick google search turns up evidence of false claims.

Generally speaking YeahPete, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. 15% increase in horsepower? I doubt it.
Synthetic oil is about the best you can do for your vehicle, though I doubt it gives you 15% either.
I think diamond lube is probably just another great marketing strategy.

I doubt that getting rid of all of the friction in the whole engine would give 15%, let alone just replacing the lube.

The claims are real, and the US Army has issued NanoLube, Inc a Mil Spec after 3.5 years of intense testing for weapons, but the diamond coating works on everything.

Ok if it works then it shouldn't be too hard to show total empirical proof of those claims in short notice.

From their website :
Quote:
Bronze ATM® Small Auto Kit $100.00 5-10% MPG Increase
Silver ATM® +P Small Auto Kit $150.00 10-30% MPG Increase
Gold MPG™ Small Auto Kit $400.00 15-30% MPG Increase
Platinum +MPG™ Small Auto Kit $600.00 21-35% MPG Increase or higher in a ONE TIME Treatment.
Those are pretty stiff claims - which not surprisingly make many folks on here rather sceptical , and that's when you end up in the Unicorn Corral.

But stiff claims should be easily verifiable when tested by some of the more experienced testers on ecomodder. Even a Silver kit should yield 10%, that's a very noticeable increase when tested under relatively stable, but real world test conditions.

How about making a set available for one of those testers ?
I'm pretty sure there will be somebody willing to try it.
