    Thx for being a guinea pig! I'm curious, I wonder why you have to pour a 5-6 oz in the crank case on first gas treatment?

    at the very least it could make your gas smell better... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ester

    well, ive got my scangauge now so i'll be able to see real time improvement (or lack of) when i get the product. I'll let you guys know what my results are when i get the time to test. Its interesting to see all of the positive claims, and then the "its total bs" claims there are out there....... i guess i'll see for myself though.:eek:

    well guys, i just got back from my trip back home and then back to college from the weekend. This is all from my scangauge that has been properly calibrated to my tires, etc.
    The trip: the drive is from 4500 ft to a summit of 5200ft, then down to about 2000 ft and eventually down to sea level. The way back is exactly the opposite. Much of the road is curvy and there are a lot of hills on it.
    The last time i went home: 21.4mpg home, 19.5 mpg back.
    This weekend's trip: 21.3 mpg home (10-15 mph headwind along the coast), 20.6mpg back (i actually left a little late and was driving pretty aggressively, and faster than last time too:rolleyes:).
    The drive is about 250 miles either way, so it seems as if it might have actually started to do something on my way back. In the site they state that it takes a little while to start working, so there may be an improvement showing up. it did seem to be getting a little bit better mileage when i was close to being back at school. There are some long, flat stretches where it usually got about 19.8-21.4mpg and i was getting a consistent 22.8-24.2 on them...... time will tell if it was just the driving conditions, or the product. i'll keep you informed:D:cool:.

    well guys, finished off the first bottle when i filled up my truck heading out of town this weekend and decided rather than going back and getting the new bottle for the next fill-up, that i would just run regular gas through my truck on the way back and see if my MPG drops....... well, in a nutshell, it did. the last 3 trips home with the Ethos in my truck got me 21.3, 21.6 and 21.6 mpg average, and the way back to school averaged me 20.3, 20.6 and 20.5 mpg. pretty damn close on all the trips. well, this weekend on my way home, sure enough i got the same 21.6 mpg, but for about 50 miles of the drive i was bucking a 15-25mph head wind so it probably would have been a little better had there not been the wind. Now, on the way back today without any of the product in my gas(i topped off at home over the weekend, then re-topped the truck again on my drive back. its all e-10 fuel here), i only managed to get 18.7 mpg, no wind whatsoever. Damn! this stuff really does seem to work guys.......

    does that stuff eat up the internals of our fuel systems?? Just throwing it out there, I've heard that yes you will see a little better fuel economy but if you just shortened the life of some some major part, injectors etc you lose in the end.

    no, i dont think that you need to worry about anything like that. its just a synthetic ester, which are actually used as lubricants so i dont see why it would. its actually completely non-toxic so if you really wanted you could even take a drink of the stuff.
