While a major effort, it was all completely inconclusive and a monumental waste of time. He didn't add the numbers in his sheet correctly, and his failure to exclude the obvious outlier just affirms there's nothing scientific about it. Ambient conditions, terrain, route, driving style, etc. all have far greater influence than the 0.48mpg difference observed when the outlier is discarded. 0.48mpg is nothing more than noise in the data.

He should have run 50 simulated miles on the dyno at about 20hp with a hydrocarbon sniffer on the exhaust to measure actual fuel consumed... would have given conclusive results.

The dyno option wouldn't have generated the excitement and sense of "community"... likely would have gotten WAY fewer views... which is the typical goal of anybody posting on Youtube.

He basically just got 23+ people to drive with and without the additive and log their mileage for nearly 60K miles.

No he tested is bette same day same route same gas pump. Watch his videos he tested that same additive on the horsepower claims on a dyno. Also send me a link to someone that test gas additives in a better way than he does. He also mentions the variables. He may not have the perfect lab conditions but personally i would trust his tests over the snake oil salesman. You seem to only criticize. Why dont you go on utube and do it better. You will make good if you have 2 million viewers like him.

because to some of us it isn't about making money, but to not waste other people's time for nothing? 99% of youtube technical videos are just that, i only go there for DIY tutorials on how to take something apart and put it back together, for a more prepared starting point. only other reason i go to youtube, is to watch people be idiots.


tell ya what, just save yourself the time and have the injectors sent in to be serviced instead of all this about additives, money better spent. most issues with power and mpg stem from dirty injectors, any additive in the tank will take many tanks with the additive and many thousands of miles to see results. having the injectors serviced will give immediate results, if they are imbalanced/dirty/semi clogged.

who wants to watch me debunk the other videos? yeah, i didn't think so. people seem to like anything that gives immediate positive results, even if it's all in your head. people don't like watching videos that have negative connotations, even if it may benefit them from not wasting their time. however i do believe in fuel treatments, but they're for lazy people and the results are less than spectacular and will wind up costing you more in the long run than doing the job right, for a ~20% result. an average 20% positive result compared to doing the job right, to me, constitutes being called snake oil because the marketing for those products advertises 100% or better, usually.


the real problem is, you need to ACTUALLY have a problem to start with to see real results, not just chuck cans of junk at your car because you THINK the injectors are plugged up. sending them to be cleaned, will actually get you a data sheet with actual figures you can physically see, not just educated guesses and mpg variances of real world conditions.


i also do not have a nice video camera, a nice voice, or a salesman's enthusiasm for selling you something regardless if you need it or not.

Obviously you did not watch the videos.He mostly debunks that the cleaners work so he is basically proving your point.

By the way I have cars near 300 k miles and I have never had a clogged injector.
