Power Sports vehicles (including motorcycles, ATV's, scooters,
snowmobiles, personal watercraft and mopeds) benefit greatly from the
Fitch® Fuel Catalyst. Engines can be easily equipped with one or
more "Drop-In" units. As the name suggests, the smaller unit actually
drops directly into the fuel tank. After a Fitch® Fuel Catalyst is
installed, the engine will almost immediately experience a cleaning of
the fuel system. in a short time, there will be a noticeable
increase in power and performance, and the engine will start easier,
run smoother and last longer. though the Fitch® Fuel Catalyst can
greatly affect the efficiency of gas and diesel fueled engines, it cannot
overcome mechanical or electrical problems.
The Fitch Fuel Catalyst part # F5T is for all brand motorcycles, ATVs, Snowmobiles, and Jet Skis and the F5T-1 is for smaller engines like mopeds and scooters. Simply drop the unit/s into the fuel tank, the unit/s will gravitate to the lowest point of the tank and will remain there treating the fuel for 250,000 miles. The Fitch unit will not bounce or rattle around because fuel acts as a hydraulic cushion that only allows the Fitch drop-in to move slightly with the movement of the fuel, not the movement of the machine. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst will not harm any internal fuel tank components. Although the Fitch Fuel Catalyst has a beneficial effect on gas and diesel fueled engines, it cannot overcome mechanical or electrical problems.
NOTE: Aggressive competitors that run fuel below 1/8 tank of fuel should pre-treat fuel in can and pour treated fuel in machine instead of dropping the unit into the fuel tank.
SUZUKI HAYBUSA SETS LAND SPEED RECORD USING FITCH FUEL CATALYST !!
Congratulations to Fred Klies, of Eastern Cycle Performance, and Mike Sweeny for setting a new Land Speed record in the Altered Power Streamliner-Gas Class. Driving a Suzuki GSX 1300R Hayabusa, prepared by Mr. Klies, Mr. Sweeny bested the prior mark of 196.800 MPH by recording a speed of 201.798 MPH over a 1 mile run from a standing start. "I want to thank Advanced Power Systems International for making the Fitch Fuel Catalyst available to us. They played a key role in this record setting performance." said Fred Klies. "Our game at ECP is to produce as much HP as possible with careful engine design and tuning without the benefit of outside/artificial power enhancers. Utilizing the Fitch Fuel Catalyst has allowed us a little extra edge by insuring the fuel going into the engine is of optimal potency and is what the engine designer had in mind when they built the engine."

The bike's fuel tank and carb float bowl were never drained of fuel in the off season and also never used fuel stabilzers. Just parked and then run each season. It was never started or run through the winter seasons. Check it out to see how the Fitch worked to keep the fuel clean!!!
HERE'S WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
ABOUT THE FITCH® FUEL CATALYST
Precision Cycle East, North Franklin, CT
Just a short story about your product. Being that I have been a loyal customer since your inception and a retailer selling your products from the beginning, I thought you'd appreciate this detail.
A customer recently sold his 2003 Ski-Doo and wanted me to preseason it before delivering to his perspective client. This sled had been sitting in his garage with gas in the tank and hadn't been started or touched for six years.
Being he was one on my customers, and took my advice when the sled was new and installed two Fitch Fuel Catalyst capsules into the fuel tank, the fuel system was in perfect condition. I removed the carbs to clean them only to find out that they were in brand new condition, not a hint of crud. The gas in the tank smelled like it was fresh out of the pump, and the fuel lines had no sign of degradation, even in the tank.
I've been working on sleds for 30+ years and know that any sled that sits for a year or more with untreated fuel in it, is always a smelly disaster, carbs full of green slime, fuel lines hard and brittle, gas in the tank in nasty condition.
Knowing how good your fuel capsules work, I was totally amazed at the condition of this sled's fuel system after sitting for SIX YEARS without a hint of grime, totally amazed indeed.
I've been selling these little goodies forever and the proof is in the pudding, six years and counting without any issues at all.
As a footnote, I have them in everything I own, vehicles, two stroke fuel cans, sleds, you name it, if it uses fuel, they're in there.
So, thanks again for a great product, they work great and perform better than advertized...........
Ian Rosser , Edmonton Alberta
I put the Fitch in a while back and son of a gun, there was a change in the way the bike runs. I had to re-tune my idle first off. After that the motor settled right down and became very smooth. It will idle in it's rubber mounts (2002 FLHT) and the horn mounted on the left side doesn't even bounce around. Amazing!
The motor by the way is 88 ci but the heads have been flowed (Hi-Per Cycle) and a set of Mackie cams push the valves. There are some minor carb mods with a Ness Super Sucker on the front end and a White Bother's 'E' series 2 into 1 pipe on the back end. This combo works extremely well and the Fitch sort of smoothed it out very nicely.
Snow Tech Magazine .....we can tell you we are so far impressed with what weve seen.........and it really seems to make a difference--they run clean and don't ping at all. We asked around and the word seems to be pretty consistant....fuel problems seem to go away. Gas seems to stay fresher longer. No gun, no greenies,no problems! Check out our magazine reviews for much more from Snow Tech!
Jessica Lake Lodge / High Performance Industries, Manitoba, Canada
On 600 CC Ski-doo and Yamaha Snowmobiles, we realized more power and smoother running throughout the whole powerband, a top speed increase of 5-8%, and a noticeable decrease in the exhaust deposits left in the snow by the idling snowmobiles. We now understand why the term "crisp" is used to describe engine performance after installing FFC, because it is very descriptive of the positive improvement to the performance.
Thank you Sincerely

NO MORE DETONATION PROBLEM .....
At White Bothers, we are very choosy about the products we carry and promote. When we were first approached to carry the Fitch Fuel Catalyst we were very skeptical. Our technicians thoroughly tested the product on the dyno and in field trials and were convinced the product lives up to all its claims. Tests on the Buell Blast showed gains of 2 HP while the DRZ400 got rid of a detonation problem with gains in HP & torque. One of the biggest benefits, we feel, is it will improve fuel quality and keep fuel fresh all the time. " The Fitch Fuel Catalyst definitely makes a difference, I use it in all my bikes now!"
Chi-Town Hustlers Motorcyle Team
September 2002 "The Chi-Town Hustlers motorcycle road racing team has been having a great 2002 season. All five of our riders have recorded numerous trophy-winning finishes. The team uses Fitch Fuel Catalyst in all of our race bikes as well as in our fuel strorage cans. No more problems with fuel evaporating and carbs becoming clogged with gummy deposits during transport either. Thanks to Fitch our bikes are fast and they are winning !"
Hypurone September 2002 "I have used this in my sportbikes for a few years and in my RX7. I added this AFTER modifying the exhaust & jetting on the sportbikes and was able to get back 3mpg and idle quality (smoothness). The engine oil stays cleaner. When changing the oil it has hardly changed color. On my Mean Streak it has smoothed out the idle a bunch, no difference in mileage (probably 'cause it's EFI). I can run a lower grade of fuel if I have to, without the bike knocking.
Mingo September 2002 "I was not certain at first if the catalyst would make any difference. However I have had one installed since April 02 and the bike runs much better. I had the bike sitting for several weeks and there was no gas deterioration. Excellent product, which I would purchase again if needed."

"I am the owner of Custom Hawg Parts & Accessories an authorized American IronHorse dealer. Already being more than pleased with performance of my personal bike a 2001 American IronHorse Slammer I was intrigued to see just what the Fitch Fuel Catalyst might do for it. I noticed with the first tank of gas an immediate difference in the fuel economy. I went from getting an average of 80 miles per tank to an average of 105 miles per tank. Needless to say I was sold on the product instantly. "
Fred Makoweckl and Glen Uhrich/Image Crafter Signs Inc.,Drumheller AB.Canada
1998 Suzuki 1400 Intruder and 1988 Heritage Softail Classic...,We were both skeptical but after only one tank of gas we were impressed. My 1400's idle's picked up about 300 to 500 rpm after only about 15 minutes of running with the catalyst. The backfiring that plagued my bike over the previous tanks of gas disappeared. Glens bike is starting easier and has to spend less time with the choke on. Overall we both feel that the Fitch, we added to our tanks, have had a major positive effect on the overall performance of our motorcycles and are advising all of our riding friends to get over to Custom Cycles in Drumheller and "get the Fitch advantage!"
Jeff DeCoffe,Mid Sackville N.S., Legends Car Racer, 1200 Yamaha 4 cylinder, Canada
Before I started using the Fitch Fuel Catalyst the car ran pretty good but kind of flat. After installing the product the car not only ran cleaner but it was a lot crisper and better engine power when braking and coming out of the corners. This product changed the life of my race car enough to win "Rookie of the Year"!! All I can say is BUY FITCH!! It could change your life!Click here
Ken McCurdy,Mid Sackville N.S., ex racer in "hare" off road scrambles, Canada
The Buell worked good to start with. I just wanted to see if it could work better. Once I used the Fitch the Bike is now more responsive, crisper throttle...like it was running on race fuel. A nice performance improvement for your dollar. I am also testing this product in my Detroit powered tractor trailer. I recommend this product to anyone who wants a low dollar improvement in performance.Click here
Colin Walker, Halifax

Before I used the Fitch I found my bike to have weak midrange response and a rough running engine. Now after the Fitch it is good news all around! It is a good low dollar performance improvement.Click here
Ralph Howells,Dartmouth N.S., 96" FXST, Canada
After I put the Fitch units in my bike I found that it was a lot smoother running and the plugs were perfect looking. I was very surprised in the difference and I won't take them out now! I was very suspicious at first but now I am convinced!! I will now start using them in my other fuel burning machines. This is a great value for the initial low cost.Click here
DENIS MADAY, 69 CUSTOM CYCLE, ALBERTA Sept 24, 2001, Canada
We tested the Fitch on 10 Harley Davidson motorcycles. Each and every one of them ran better and started easier. One tested on a trip from Calgary,Alta to Kelowna B.C. gave better mountian pulling power and 110 km to 7.3 liters of fuel. Unreal pulling performance over 55 mph!....All our high performance Merch 120ci motors and the 131ci motors will have the Fitch in them when we install the motors from now on!Click here
STAN WILLINGTON, ONT.Sept. 15/2001, Canada
....some good news re the Fitch unit.... I put a lot of miles on the bike this summer (approaching 25,000 K) with the Fitch unit in.... on the run to PEI for the National HOG rally I road with a group of 5 other bikes - all new touring model (I have a Road King, the other where Classics and Ultras) and I consistently used less gas - on average about 1.5 liters per tank of gas.... the group of us road and gased up together for 8 days so this seems like a reasonable test to me.....
HAROLD McCANN, SNOWMOBILER MAGAZINE Sept. 15/2001,Canada
I used it on my Grand Touring Bombardier during the past season. I found that it increased the gas mileage and no fouling spark plugs. In fact I did not have to change plugs in 3,700 Km. I would recommend it to any user of gas engines.
MIKE MALLANY ,PARTSOURCE-Beeton ONT,1200 XL HD, Sept. 5/2001, Canada
My bike is showing good results. Prior to installation of the F5T I was hitting reserve anywhere between 220 & 250km occasionally less. Only once ,in the three years that I have had the bike, has it hit 275km. Now I am seeing a definite increase.......here are the readings for the last four fill ups :
1st fill -277 km
2nd fill -266 km
3rd fill -251 km
4th fill -270 km
That's an average of approx. 266km !!! and still counting.
The proof's in the puddin' baby !!!
RON KOPETSKI(Team Leader, Dealer Profile Development Centre for Excellence
,TORONTO ONT,SEPT 4/2001 , Canada
the performance improvements I added are : Jardine pipes, K&N air filter, DynoJet carb kit ( jets increased from 35 mm to 45 mm ) gas mileage decreased from 230 km, not including reserve to 160 km per tank, including reserve so I put the F5's in last Wednesday, after the dyno run, and I'm on tank #4 now.
Tank # 1 - 200 km, including no kms on reserve ( 75 km in expressway, 125 km in cottage country, windy roads, just touring ) - 25 % or 40 km increase.
Tank # 2 - 175 km, including no kms on reserve ( all expressway +130 km/h bucking a headwind - I would expect 150 km normally rather than 160 km due to the winds and high speeds ) - 16 % or 25 km increase.
Tank # 3 - 190 km, including under 5 km on reserve ( all expressway +130 km/h - I would expect 150 km normally rather than 160 km due to the high speeds ) - 20 % or 40 km increase.
needless to say, I'm more than impressed.... Click here for pic of Ron's Bike!

.... as you know I put your product into my new FLH. I was astounded by
the results! My old gas mileage was 16.2 km to a litre, with my first
test tank my mileage increased to 20.02km per litre. A significant
increase. I will be putting it into my cars some time soon.
LEN CREED , Publisher for Canadian Bike Magazine, from editorial CB Sept/2001, Canada
My bike is running just that much better with a Fitch Fuel Catalyst, supplied by PM Cycles In Nova Scotia, just love that extra mileage !
LARRY MORINE, Nova Scotia , 2001,Canada
I was at first skeptical, to say the least to think that by just dropping the units in my tank that my performance would increase along with my fuel mileage. I must say that the catalyst performed just as he said it would , smoother running and a definite feel of strong performance was very noticeable on an already well performing Harley.

JOHN FOSTER, Nova Scotia July 3, 2001,Canada
I have been driving this bike since it was new and I can't get over how much different it performs. It is much smoother through the gears, and when I open the throttle.... it is right there. The bike has always worked well but this is a noticiable difference! Click here for more!
Jim Balfe, 1996 Triumph Thunderbird 900cc, Ontario, July 3, 2001, Canada
The two fillups prior to the carb work revealed an improvement in mileage (about 5%) and an improvement in combustion stability. It reduced, but did not eliminate, exhaust detonation on the overrun. Once the carbs air leaks were stopped, which turned out to be the major problem, the popping and banging disappeared. We also shimmed the needles and richened the low speed mixture. This is now a different bike! Can you believe a Thunderbird that can keep up with a goosed Ducati Monster on acceleration? I do think that the catalyst helped.

1948 Vincent HRD, 500 cc single, Comet, built to Grey Flash specifications #423, Nova Scotia July 1, 2001, Canada
After the installation, there was a noticeable improvement in the transition from pilot to
mid-range throttle positions. I really noticed the difference at Shubenacadie because it is a
road-race track which has very few places for the bike to operate wide-open yet the
performance was smoother and more predictable.......I do believe this product is working, so much so that I have purchased an additional unit
for the Vincent Sidecar Racer.

" Fitch's Fuel Catalyst Delivers.....Over the course of a couple of weeks of riding, the average fuel economy went from 27 mpg (city driving) before the test to 29 mpg immediately, then ultimately to 33 mpg, where it stabilized."
Iron Works Magazine, July 2001, Dyno Testing the Fitch with test bike and dyno courtesy of S&S Cycle.
"...I repeated my power runs and compared the best of the three latest runs to the the best run without the catalyst. Shazam ! The latest showed an increase of 1.4 hp / 1.2 ft-lbs. at peak power (6,200 rpm) with a gain of almost 3-1/2 horsepower at 5500 rpm!!..."
RAY NEILEY, NOVA SCOTIA, MAY 15/2001, Canada
I tried out the Fitch treatment and noticed a difference, for the better, when I was going up the mountain. Nice!
My bike is an 1988 Kawasaki KLR650 dual sport, one cylinder thats been
modified with an oversize piston, K&N air filter, Supertrapp exhaust,
carburetor adjusting, etc. The Fitch brought all the tuning together by
getting rid of the dead spot at 3/4 throttle, power band between 4000 -
6000 rpm, and increased the haul up the mountain by 15 km/h. A decent
ANTHONY WATTON ( AKA Bones )
NOVA SCOTIA, March 23/2001, Canada
Being a skeptic of many things such as oil and fuel additives I was reluctant to try the Fitch Fuel Catalsyt, even though the facts were there in front of me in black and white. Still I saw no sense in purchasing the product right away. My 74 cubic inch shovelhead like most shovels had the reputation of being somewhat tempermental at times. Especially at stop signs at a low idle. Regardless of multiple attempts to adjust my carb and timing I have allways had that problem, and being strickly a kicker I had no magic button to push to get me moving in traffic quickly. As fate will have it all my hitchs were cured only 20 minutes after I purchased Fitch. I dropped them in my tanks and before I knew it I was sitting in traffic expecting a cough and a stall. But it didn`t happen. And it has not happened since. I soon also noticed a quicker throttle response and a decrease in my fuel consumption. If Fitch can make a believer out of a skeptic like myself, It is in my opinion, the best, if not the only product of its kind to live up to its reputation. To Check out Anthony's ride, click here.
LAKE RIDGE SPORTS, Wolfville, NOVA SCOTIA, Feb 19/2001, Canada
I've found better overall starting and overall improved performance. The engine runs smoother and plug fouling was minimal. When I tested it on an Indy 500 E.F.I. the fuel mileage was much better than without the Fitch. Click here for more about Lakeridge Sports
