Some spray on coatings for piston tops and combustion chambers have been shown to make more power.
Making this happen via something you put in the oil is pretty dubious.

As for that CAT diesel truck that gained 16% on FE?
why bother selling thru a website, every fleet in America should be begging you for it.......

Zbraff -

I think this is a play on the "ceramic coatings" mods for engines. Doesn't the "real thing" cost over $1000? Here's a few more of the same :

CermetLab - Nano-Particle Ceramic Conditioner for Metal Surfaces
CerMet Ceramic Coating Nanotechnology (10 ml) from Overstock.com

A C-Note (100 dollars) will get you 10 milliliters of the stuff. Isn't that drug-price territory?

cerma

haven't heard of it.Rather not hear anymore about it.Nice techno-babble though.They might consider writing for Star Trek.At least that job would keep them out of prison.Those people better watch their back.
