eeFuel additive

Is there a snake oil sticky somewhere?
Anybody hear of eeFuel additive? It’s a pint bottle that has a 1 oz. chamber on top that treats about 20 gallons. Water based so I would be a little afraid to put it in my diesel car.

some work

Ethos is used in fleet vehicles - Allied Waste ( public Company ) credits it with saving 1.6 Million in fuel costs last year .

I found one that increased my mileage 33 % on a 460 ford and an 85 subaru.

testing is the only answer

I presume Allied Waste conducted back-to-back,in- laboratory tests,with the same,fully-loaded trash truck performing a structured urban cycle EPA-approved test cycle,on a chassis- dynomometer,with closely monitored atmospheric conditions,and all data reduced to standard temperature and barometric pressure.I presume also,that their results were verified by at least two other independent testing labs.

Areohead,

Sounds like Ethos 50% male bovine feces and 50% al-gore-ism.

I hate knocking anyone that has something to add but I think you my be right, he is in it for the money. You can tell because there is no way 33% gain could happen to those completely different types of cars, right.
