It works like snake-oil, Ed. They used to proudly advertise that it met a milspec. I looked up the milspec, and it basically said "Anyone can submit anything to us for testing, and we are required to test it. This specification says that if you bolt a gizmo onto the bulkhead and conduct maneuvers at sea, the gizmo won't fall off the bulkhead."

LITERALLY.

No test lab has ever found any benefit from using those gizmos--except the ones they hire. Save your money.

see a previous thread on these: Anyone use an Algae-X?

If you tape a magnet to your fuel line you'll get exactly the same benefit and save hundreds of dollars, guaranteed.

Cheers,

Tim

Stay the H&** away from it. Voodoo is too good a way to describe this system.
