Default EthosFR Thoughts

Ok, so I've been looking to see if there is a good additive to help improve fuel economy in my 03 GT. While searching I found someone talking about EthosFR and how good it was, did a little research on it, went to their website (Ethos FR | Fuel Reformulator | Oregon and Washington Fulfillment Center) and it seems almost too good to be true. I was hoping someone on here had first hand experience with it, and what they thought. Now I'm not saying additives are the best thing in the world, but who am I to argue with a 9-19% increase in fuel economy.

Anyways, thoughts are appreciated.

Hey, why not be the first one to order a bottle at $26.65 and let us know how it works.

According to my calculations (and I could be wrong), that one 16 oz. bottle @ $26.65 will treat 160 gallons or 1 oz. for every 10 gallons (approx 1 tank full), or about $2.66 for every 10 gallon fill up. So, if you received approx 14% better mileage (half of the 9-19% as advertised), that better save you more than the $2.66 (or 1 gallon of gas at today's prices) that it cost you to buy it.

In other words, if you don't save enough gas to save one gallon per 10 gallon fill up, after buying the bottle, it ain't wort it.

Very true, I really was just wondering if anyone had some real world experience with it. But if not that's fine, I'll forgo risking my engine and performance just to save a few cents.

It sounds sort of like Lucasoil gas treatment

Just send me the money and I'll promise you better mpg. Pretty much the same deal they offer.
