ok i filled the tank today, the results so far are in conclusive, i got 19.xx on my last tank but i have a few other tanks which show similar mileage (check my fuel logs) anyhow, the tank was mostly city, i towed two vehicles and lots of cargo. the only downfall with trying to get a perfectly conclusive improvement amount is that my jeep usage changes alot, and i mostly use it to do work.

sweatbrah - what kind of help do you need and what kind of vehicle are you working on, i am more than happy to give ideas and try to instruct on how to work with different matterials.

as a side note about my current grill block, i plan on re doing it out of plexiglass, i am not the happiest with the appearance of this one and i think i would like the look of plexi, will keep you guys updated as things change.

I think a sane person would call this "putting make up on a pig" or "polishing a turd". Subscribed!
