I keep seeing these adds for this Fitch Fuel Catalyst. It looks like you install it as if it were a fuel filter. I checked out the website, but I still don't know what to think. Is anyone here using one, or heard anything about them?
Here's the link.
I tried posting this in another forum, but thought I would try here. Anyone seen these things before or tried them? I checked out the website, but can't seem to find where they tell you exactly what it does to make it work. Check it out, and tell me what you think.
This stuff drives me nuts, at least with the magnets, they made up some junk about what they do to (supposedly) improve your mileage. All they tell you with this one is that it works, but apparently they don't know how. I'd bet these guys were trading cows for magic beans when they were younger.
"The Fitch Fuel Catalyst is not a fuel additive. It is a special alloy that does not dissolve in fuel. On the alloy surface the fuel is reformulated to a state that is capable of a more complete combustion. As a result, the engine converts the chemical energy in the fuel to mechanical energy in a more efficient manner. The engine power is increased as a result and the toxic exhaust emissions are decreased, frequently by more than half."
IMHO. it's most likely a nicely reformulated BS as one would need higher than room temperature to do anything with most compounds in the gasoline, regardless of whatever catalyst is used. It probably contains at least one of these: platinum, palladium, or rhodium.
In any case, this is definitely better than a magnet, but it's probably just as useless.
