    Xtreme Fuel Treatment

    Hi All,

    About 3 years ago I got burnt by Photomax, lost about $3k and nearly lost my wife and kids.

    Today I have been approached about this thing called Xtreme Fuel Treatment.

    I'll be 'PHARKED' if I let myself get screwed again, so if anyone knows anything about it, can you please let me know.

    This is all I get when I go to their website: https://www.goxft.com/cgi-bin/in1.pl?inview=15

    Advanced apologies if I'm not supposed to do that.

    The company is Syntax / Syntex?

    I'm sorry for being a 'pain-in-the-ass' with my question.

    Thank you for any help/advice given, but you know what they say, "Once Bitten ... Twice Shy".

    Re: Xtreme Fuel Treatment

    This is their youtube video.

    If what they are saying is true, your engine will either melt or explode. You can not just change burning point of gasoline engine if it was not designed for that specific temperature. Another lie that most of the fuel is wasted in the engine. About 98% of fuel is burned in the engine during normal conditions. Another lie: if you add fuel additive in fuel compartment it is not going to lubricate pistons. Patented and registered by EPA does not mean to be approved by EPA. It only means that it is safe to move and does not contain dangerous chemicals. In fact, chances are it is just a vinegar.

    This is an old story. There has been 100s of these products pushed through MLMs and direct sales. None of them worked and all of them failed EPA test. EPA approval is a golden standard for any fuel additive. Those that pass are added by oil companies to their fuels. If they want to prove that their product works, tell them submit to EPA test. But I doubt they will.

    Also, guys. This can not be their first try. Can anybody investigate previous reincarnations of this "product"?

    Years ago there was some company called ethos which was some sort of fuel additive. I also remember some sort of gas pill too.

    Re: Xtreme Fuel Treatment

    wonder if any of the distributors have had their fuel economy measured according to EPA standards. I think you'll find you actually have to do that if you want to make specific fuel mileage claims in your advertisements.

    amazingly enough, no one ever gets these additives tested. nevermind if any of them did half of what they claim, the company would be worth billions overnight.
    I'm not selling anything, so I don't need links in my signature to for-profit ventures. You really should question the intentions of those here that have them, as they are generally advertising, not informing.

    By involving in this MLM/gas additive nonsense you must have lost lots of money. The reason your Xterra went from 15mpg to 22mpg is probably because you have to auction off the vehicle doors, windows and seats to pay for your huge debt and now that your car is much lighter....

    Anyone wishing to improve their car's mileage could also join any MLM scam and you would observe immediate effects due to a much lighter wallet.

    Or you could just sell your gas guzzler and buy an ecomony car... 30mpg+ to boot...
    Odds of success in MLM is as slim as winning the lottery, but except in lottery, every player has an equal and random chance, whereas in MLM the winners have all been pre-determined.

    If you are unhappy with this uh, "opportunity", here's another MLM.

    Benifits (sic) of the FUEL OPTIMIZER Catalyst Delivery System:

    Increases gas mileage (gasoline savings average more than 22%)
    Cleans engines throughout of harmful abrasive carbon deposits
    Works in conjunction with and extends the life of catalytic converters
    Engines burn more completely captivating(sic) 22% of all fuel that is normally wasted without the FUEL OPTIMIZER System
    3-5 Point octane boost
    Significantly reduces pollution
    Gives vehicles more pow-er and acceleration
    Easy to use, pre-measured bottles of platinum formula
    Installs in 10-15 minutes with easy to follow instructions. No special tools needed
    FUEL OPTIMIZER Catalyst system is small
    Fits conveniently in engine area
    FUEL OPTIMIZER is safe and compatible with all gasoline burning engines

    ----------------------
    I'll give you a few pointers.

    -That gadget has been on (and off) the market since 1977
    -see http://nationalfuelsaver.com/about/about.html

    -Since 1980 their basic claim has been unchanged: 22% fuel economy on average.

    -That claim is presented in various ways, like 22% to 28% fuel economy, up to 48% fuel economy, guaranteed 22% fuel ecomony, etc...

    -They claim that their system works equally for gasoline and diesel engines, with the magic 22% for both

    - They present a test, (or is it a testimonial), with a Chevrolet 1980 V8 engine, in simulated conditions. The results were a 18% fuel economy

    -Since 1980, engines, carburators and fuel mixes have changed A LOT. Their claims have remained unchanged.

    -They claim it's "EPA Approved". It is. As any gizmo claiming to improve engine efficiency.
    Here is the EPA webpage: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/consumer/reports.htm
    And here is the result of the EPA tests for the Platinum Gasaver: (900K PDF) http://www.epa.gov/otaq/consumer/devices/pb92104413.pdf
    The EPA concludes that the device brings no improvement either emission or fuel economy, so it is legit to sell it in the US of A.

    -The device mixture purportedly contains platinum, rhodium and niobum. Currently, platinum fetches $1500 an ounce.

    -The Global Verge CEO claims that the product has won a Truth in Advertising award. This is false.
    The National Fuel Saver company was sued in 1980 by the US Postal Service under the Truth in Advertising law, for claiming that the product brung UP TO 48% fuel savings.
    National Fuel Saver initially lost the case (they had done no systematic testing), but the case was reversed on appeal.
    http://www.usps.com/judicial/1981deci/10-1dd.htm
    So, no, they didn't win any "Truth in Advertising" award, and the Courts didn't affirm or condone their tests, or lack thereof.

    -Here is the results of the test of the device by Consumer Reports:
    http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/c...view/index.htm
    "The Platinum Gas Saver ($248 for two, free shipping) includes tubing and a plastic reservoir containing liquid.
    The National Fuelsaver Corporation claims the device is guaranteed to increase fuel mileage by 22 percent, in addition to extending engine life by cleaning out abrasive carbon deposits.
    The manufacturer says that the product adds microscopic amounts of platinum to the air and fuel going to the engine, helping your car burn gas more efficiently and cleanly.
    In more than 1,800 miles of driving, our tests showed no overall mileage improvements."

    So much for the Global Verge Fuel Economizer.

    You could make ALL the uncombusted fuel go towards combustion in a modern engine, you wouldn't effect your mileage. While there is a tiny amount of fuel that isn't combusted, it's so small, you couldn't do anything meaningful with it.
    I'm not selling anything, so I don't need links in my signature to for-profit ventures. You really should question the intentions of those here that have them, as they are generally advertising, not informing.

    OR, we could direct market a flux capacitor and put the plutonium on "autoship" and with 1.21 gigawatts of power, who needs fuel anyway.

    Nah, go right for the "Mr Fusion" reactor, but skip the flux capacitor. That's what made time travel possible, and once that's possible, your downline will keep going back in time and becoming your upline. You'd continuously be getting pushed to the bottom of the pyramid, thus making little money.

    yb: sorry this is so late from first post, but I just came across it. I am a rep of Syntek Global & if anyone is in doubt (not going to do this for everyone that contacts me though) i will give one of you enough product to test on your car & report back here your results. How does that sound
