Product Description

The Fitch as a fuel treatment device that reformulates fuel. The Fitch doesn't make good fuel better but "reconstitutes" degraded fuel. "Degraded" doesn't necessarily mean that nasty, evil smelling stuff you find in the tanks of neglected outboard boats. Immediately after gasoline is made, it begins to degrade. Essentially, it tries to revert back into its previous form. The longer between the time the fuel was refined and you use it, the more degradation has occurred and the more power and mileage is lost.

Really old fuel is an extreme example but according the a source in the gas business, it can be one to three weeks between the time the fuel is processed and it gets to your station. How long it sits in the tank after than depends on how much fuel that station sells. On top of that, the way fuel is stored and transported can have an effect on how quickly it degrades and its condition when you pump it into your tank.

The Fitch uses a 19-metal heterogeneous metal alloy insert as a catalyst and APS tells us converts elements in the degraded fuel to alkanes, which are paraffins that contain hydrocarbons. Alkanes combust better than degraded olefins and aromatic compounds, so you gain back some of what is lost. The metallic alloy also reduces microbial action, which are little critters that form and grow in the water that may be contained in gasoline and may plug fuel filters.

How much benefit you gain from the Fitch is directly proportional to the quality of the fuel. APSI claims an average gain of 1 to 2.5 mpg, also saying their product proves more useful and beneficial in the "real world" of spotty fuel quality.


The Fitch catalyst process works in a manner similar to the cracking process used in the petroleum industry to make high octane gasolines.

Imagine a bell-shaped curve representing the components of the fuel. The most combustible materials are in the middle range and make up the majority of the fuels composition but at either end there are elements that cause ignition problems. The lighter components burn too fast causing pre-ignition and the heaviest components burn slowly causing late ignition resulting in smoke and carbon buildup-- it is these problem components on which the catalyst works.

Through an electro-chemical reaction the Fitch catalyst converts these lighter and heavier components into energy producers rather than to excess smoke.

Refineries cannot remove many poorly performing molecules to make a more ideal fuel. In addition, once fuel leaves the refinery or is stored it is subject to attack by oxygen, ozone, and microorganisms (bacteria, yeast, and mold) that grow in the fuel. All these processes degrade the fuel to make a poorer product that prevents engines from performing at optimum levels. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst reformulates fuel prior to combustion on board the vehicle, preventing oxygen and most diseases from attacking the fuel and reversing any degradation that may have occurred prior to the fuel being introduced to the vehicle. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst assists the combustion process by insuring that fuel is highly uniform, potent, consistent, and stable.

The Fitch Fuel Catalyst is composed of a heterogeneous metal alloy that is a true catalyst by definition in that it affects, but does not become a part of, the fuel. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst improves the combustibility of hydrocarbon fuels by treating the fuel immediately before it enters the combustion chamber. As the fuel is exposed to Fitch Fuel Catalyst in the fuel tank of small engines or as it passes through a canister containing the catalyst in the fuel line of larger engines, the catalyst acts on the naturally degraded extreme ends of the fuel spectrum. The catalyst acts on impurity molecules in fuel converting them into extremely active small molecules which have the effect of cracking any long-chain paraffins to form lower molecular weight saturated alkanes. As a result, fuel burns cleaner and more completely, improving the combustion process. This process is similar to the cracking process used to create different fuels at an oil refinery.

By facilitating more complete combustion, the Fitch Fuel Catalyst improves fuel economy and increases power, while reducing emissions. The use of the Fitch Fuel Catalyst also results in cleaner engine oil, reduced carbon buildup in the engine, easier starting, reduced maintenance, and prolonged engine life.

The Fitch Fuel Catalyst may be used on any size internal combustion engine. The product is now in use on thousands of engines worldwide ranging from small 1/4 horsepower string trimmers to large commercial and marine engines in excess of 5,000 horsepower. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst may be used with gasoline, diesel, methanol and other liquid fuels.

On small engines such as chain saws, lawn mowers and motorcycles, the Fitch Fuel Catalyst is installed directly into the fuel tank. All larger engines are treated with an in-fuel line application the size of which is based on the horsepower (or fuel flow) of the engine. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst is maintenance-free and will last for the life of the engine in non-commercial applications or 250,000 miles or 5,000 operating hours in commercial applications.


In order to fully appreciate the Fitch Fuel Catalyst you have to see it work for yourself. Drop an F-2T unit into your chainsaw or trimmer or put an F-4T into your lawn mower-or install an F-5T into your motorcycle or ATV. You will quickly notice that your equipment will start easier, smoke less and have more power. Then install a Fitch Fuel Catalyst in-line unit on your car or truck after establishing a fuel mileage baseline and monitor the results.


Certain things can be quickly observed. The engine may run smoother and quieter. More power may be felt and there may be less exhaust smoke. However the most objective way to measure is by having a baseline of information for comparison of "before" and "after." This data can be based on fuel economy (miles per gallon), emissions of Hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO), engine oil analysis, or performance.
