    I have heard of this product before, it apparently was discovered in Ukraine while drilling for oil they noticed that as the drill got hot a ceramic layer formed on the bit and kept it from wearing out. Something in that particular soil. They developed a product to restore worn engine parts to new like condition by adding thier product, so the claim states. We've all heard of different snake oil treatments only to find out they're a scam, but available for 11 years and only good reviews (some opinions are bad but not reviews) makes me want to try it. :D

    Binky, you live across the pond, what have you heard about this product? :)

    I thought about buying some too but couldn't see allot of difference between Stage 1 Maximum, Automatic except pricing. Which one did you order?

    I have a 1988 Mazda B2600 w/ 140,000 that I have done allot of top end work on but haven't even considered rebuilding however I would like to increase engine life.

    A friend of mine that has worked at several race tracks across Kansas told me about it like 5 years ago, but never got around to ordering any and it was $100 back then. Said it was awesome in race engines. Keep us posted.

    This might help Detector on some of his projects. :)

    Cool, I have to replace a timing chain in the Mazda before I can use it. I was just confused on the 3 tube pack and 3 different kinds of single treatments. It looks like the one you purchased is cheaper but a little more time involved with 3 treatments, but how hard is it to squeeze a tube into the oil filler. :D

    They say in their marketing that if you can squeeze a tube of toothpaste you can use this.

    Bubba, did you ever get a chance to try this product out?

    Yes I did, not sure if I see a big difference, but no harm done either. I am getting 1-2 MPG better than before, but I got new Michelin tires as well so it might be because of that too. My vehicle is a 2003 with 140000 miles on it. So it may work better if you get it in an engine that doesn't have as many miles on it.

    Cool, I bet the tires get maybe 1 and the treatment maybe 1, either way with fuel prices it all helps. Thanks. :D

    a mechanic shop in ohio or pennsylvania has been taking motors and ceramic coating liners and pistons for years, taking a 600 cummins diesel or pickup motor and bringing horse power on 600 cummins diesel to 1000 horsepower, for years

    As someone who drives 5000+ miles per month, and buys tires twice a year, I have noticed an initial decrease in gas mileage after my new tires are installed. I have been told that bald, worn out tires actually get better gas mileage than brand new tires because new tires are not only heavier, but they have better traction and gripping, which increases friction and thus increases the load on the engine. My Dodge Caravan was getting 24.5 highway, but now is getting about 22.6 since the new tires were installed about three weeks ago. The mileage will increase through the life of the tires and eventually be back to 24.5 as the tires approach their lifespan. Another explanation may be that as the tread on your tires wear, the tires actually become smaller, and the speedometer/odometer are affected, giving you the illusion of a change in gas mileage.
