Anyone tried Tufoil?

A guy I work with recommended this Tufoil Oil Additive: http://www.tufoil.com/ He really didn't have anything concrete to say about it. Nothing like "it saves me hundreds in gas and blah blah blah" I did some checking on the net and found some positive reviews of it on Amazon.
I ordered a quart and plan on adding it to the engine, front and rear diff, transfer case and transmission (manual). Just thought I would see if anyone has heared anything about it.
Thanks
Troy

As can be seen from the MSDS, the primary ingredient is CAS #64741-88-4, or a group I oil. The second is VII (to make your oil thick and "quiet") and third is some PAO. So based on the % given we know that at LEAST 75% of the product is nothing that cannot be found in other motor oils.

Only thing I am worried about is the Silicon though it did go down from the last UOA(22). The oil thickened a bit probably because of Tufoil. I usually get a numerical value for soot/solids but it was N/A this time probably due to PTFE in Tufoil. I have 3 other UOA's on this engine here on BITOG. Any questions/comments are welcome.

Thanks,
Deven.

P.S. Currently have PP 5w30 with 4oz Tufoil and Fram Extended Guard Oil Filter.
